Announcement New Features Release Notes Fixed

Release Notes: July 2022

AUTHOR: The SafetyChain Team

SafetyChain is excited to announce details of our monthly release for the month of July

While we continue to work on performance improvements throughout the system, this month we had additional focus on optimizing user experience around submission workflows and date ranges on charts.

Top 5 Highlights

  • (LINK) Floating Date Ranges for Charts: Charts can now have additional floating date ranges beyond the limited time frame options that were available in the past. There will be a more intuitive Date Range tab when building charts to guide the user through the options with examples provided for each selection. Users can navigate back to the date range tab and change it to create multiple versions of a chart as needed. Video here.

  • (LINK) Print Documents with Header and Footer in LINK: When the document is opened in a slide out panel there will now be a print icon available. Documents printed through this method will include a date and time stamp as well as the URL in the header/footer so printed documents can be tracked back to the date they were printed. Video here.

  • (Mobile) Toast Messages on Record Submissions: Users will no longer have to navigate to the Submission screen to know if a record was created or if there was an invalid workflow. The status of the record will be displayed automatically for the user. Video here.

  • (Web/Mobile) Saved Tasks are Removed When Tasks are Reassigned: When a task schedule is reassigned to a new workgroup users will be notified that all Saved records from the old workgroup will be deleted. Users will not be able to complete the Saved records and they will be removed from the devices for better data integrity and security. Video here.

  • (LINK) Time Elapsed Since Screen Refresh: There will now be a time displayed on records pages in LINK to indicate the last time the data was refreshed since the page has been idle to help users take action right away to get new data. Video here.

Here’s what else went live this month

Since you heard from us last we’ve also shipped:

  • (LINK) Download button on Images: Images are visible on the record in LINK in multiple places. In order to download the image users have to right click and open in another tab. Now users can click a download button to open the image in another tab in one click, then the user can download it.

  • (Web) Upgraded Data Provisioning Pages UI: There will be an overall look and feel update to the page as well as a few changes for improved performance. Download for imports and exports will only be supported in the drop down arrow, not through double click on the row.

  • Performance: Continued performance improvements throughout the application.
