RPT Release Notes 2020.08.05

Fixed: Issue with committee members not being removed from a committee:

Fixed problem preventing users from being removed from  committee and causing an error: "Sorry! The committee_member_id provided does not exist" when trying to remove the user from a committee.

Added: New Home Page

We have released a new Home page for our  products.

Before: Our Home page consisted of a single Your Action Items box listing all outstanding tasks with a link to the area where the task can be completed. Some users would also see an Additional Assigned Items box with a search bar above that section. 

Now: The new Home page presents the same information but has a “dashboard” feel that makes better use of the screen space. Also, users are able to search through all their tasks. 

If your institution also uses Interfolio's Faculty Reporting product Faculty180, there are additional changes to the home page as described here Faculty180 Release Notes 2020.08.05

New Home page features:

Your Tasks list:  
  1. Your Action Items has been renamed Your Tasks. Only the name has changed. Tasks are exactly the same thing as Action Items with a new name. Your Tasks displays a count of all current tasks.
  2. A Search bar above the table allows keyword searching of all tasks.
  3. Above the table, two panels display a count of Read Tasks and Unread Tasks. These provide counts of the tasks that users have clicked on and tasks users have not clicked on, respectively.
  4. Tasks display in a table/list divided into two columns; Title and Due Date
    • Clicking Title at the top of the table sorts the table alphabetically by title. Two clicks reverse alphabetization. Three clicks resets sort. 
    • Clicking Due Date at the top of the table sorts by the date due chronologically. Two clicks reverses chronological order, and three clicks resets sort.
  5. The title of tasks in the table display as a link to the area of our program where the task can be completed. 
  6. If the user has more than seven tasks, the user can click the View all link at the bottom of the list to open and expanded list of tasks allowing them to see a paginated view of all items in the list.
