In this release the risk module continues to receive functional updates. We have also added some small improvements and fixed a small bug relating to the permissions around companies.
As we expand the Risks module it was a natural fit that the risk assessment should easily link to the records in iPassport. We have now added the tab where all the risk assessment linked to the iPassport record can be viewed. At the moment the Risks tab is only available for non-compliances and internal audits, but we’ll roll it out to other records when we receive more feedback.
The Risks tab allows users to add, edit and delete risk assessments linked to the record the user is viewing. The user does not require the Risk module permissions to be able to add the risks. The user does need the permission to edit the iPassport record the assessment is linked to.
The Risks tab allows the full functionality available in the standalone Risks module but all the assessments are automatically linked to the iPassport record.
You can also view the assessment created in iPassport’s Risks tab in the Risks module app.
When viewing the Risks tab in iPassport the user will have the option to mark one of the assessments as primary. This is to indicate the importance of the assessment in the context of the record.
As the customers continue to work on improving their processes it’s inevitable that at some point the Risk Configuration will have to be updated to reflect the new process. We have added the ability to update the version of the configuration the assessment is using to bring any changes made to the template.
Once you publish the new version of the risk configuration you can open an existing assessment that uses the old configuration, you’ll be given an option to view the differences between the two versions and upgrade the version if you’re happy with the changes.
This small improvement changes the field name on non-compliances to better reflect the purpose of the Title field.
Some of our customers found that the export of the Skilled Group search results was not working for their purposes. We have now added a standalone Reports tab that allows exporting groups with either users or documents to help with reviewing the groups content.
Two new ways to score competency tests was added. At the moment there is only one way to score the answers for the checkbox type question. To allow more flexibility we have added two more scoring options.
The default scoring mechanism will be the current scoring. We named it Severe. The options are now as follows:
This improvement is adds new tools to help the iPassport development team to manage the way iPassport looks. You may notice subtle changes in the way some elements are displayed, like the drop-down boxes and buttons, but in general the system should look and feel the same.
For years iPassport used TeX to generate most of it’s PDF reports and this served us well for a very long time, but it has it’s drawbacks that became apparent when the datasets grew larger. We’re now testing the new solution to see how it stacks up against the old giant.
Currently, the only PDF print converted to use the new tool is the “Print” action in the Equipment and Non Compliance areas.
We release bug fixes as soon as they become available, but since this issue related to permission checks we felt it was better to allow customers to validate the change before it goes out.
