We are pleased to announce Major Release 2017.2.  There are a number of minor improvements and bug fixes worth reviewing below. But the major aspect of this release has to do with fully embracing our new dashboard and introducing a new approach to navigation.  Principally, we introduce new 'tabs' to allow users to have multiple items open at the same time. For instance-- open a document and take the training in a 2 different windows. In the screenshot below, you can see the user is looking at the full documents table, has audit #2095 open, is editing and SOP document and has 2 other documents open in the screen viewer. As a bonus-- the application will REMEMBER what tabs you had open last-- meaning you can speed right to your favorite tables/views the moment you log in.


Two critical aspects of this:

  1. We will be deprecating the 'Old' dashboard, all of whose functionality is replicated/improved in new dashboard.  We will be reaching out to any users on the old dashboard directly but here is a great article as reference.
  2. We will no longer include the existing tabs at the top of the application for Documents,  Training, Audits and Issues.  The upside-- you can access all these old areas from the sub dashboard.  Some article for your reference: 
  3. You will be able to add new content or search recent spots right from the dashboard.  A good article here.

Thanks as always to our customers that send us great ideas and to our developers who have been working overtime to launch. We have an aggressive roadmap for the 2018!
