The August update has 37 improvements and bug fixes to the software since the July update.

All new features are fully documented in both the release notes and updated User Guides.

Key new features in SVN647

1 We have a new mobile-friendly "job summary sheet" available for display on a surveyor's phone or tablet.  This shows the key information from the job without needing to print out any paperwork!

2 You can now import survey data (from another consultancy, for example) straight from Excel import sheets

3 We have changed the way that we control who can Approve or Sign off a report.  Only users in the "Quality" or "Superuser" security groups will now be allowed to do this

4 The emails which are automatically sent when a new project is created can now be customised by you - there is a template facility to allow you to include any information (in any format) from the project screen

5 The milestones feature is now quicker to use - double-click on the date and the system will enter your name and today's date automatically.

There are many more new features in this release and 8 important bug fixes.  See the release notes at the bottom of the Alpha Tracker product page for more information.

The update is ready to download and install through the Setup|System|Software Updates button.  If you need help to run the update, please do contact the support desk.
