 Health Indicators on Home Page

Standard Data Fields Upgrade

  • The following data fields have all been changed from custom fields to standard since they were being used by all clients:  Project Objectives and Deliverables, Project Benefits, Project Owner, Task Description, Document Description 

Logical Access Control       

  • The logical access control list has been reviewed and brought more in line with the application functions. The dashboards have moved to their own section on the User Group >> Edit page, similar to reports ( 

User Group Delete  

  • Users with appropriate access to the User Groups functionality on the Administration page will now be able to delete a user group. A Delete User Group icon has been added to the User Group Edit page. This will however disappear when users are allocated to a selected group. This will ensure that system administrators can maintain user groups efficiently (
