Release Notes v 1.16.0


Linked items throughout RESPONSUM have been fine tuned to show more relevant links in a format that is easier to read. Within each item, you now have a “linked item pop-out” which you can use to link another item within RESPONSUM.

UI updates have been performed to align the buttons and actions shown on overview and view/edit pages.

Newly created items (using the + buttons in other items) now become selected automatically after they are created.

The user will be notified if the text input in a field is too long to be stored correctly.

Step-numbers in RESPONSUM assessments are now clickable for easier navigation. The steps are clickable if the previous step was saved and the next page has already been visited.

For each item in RESPONSUM, the user has the ability to add one or more files to that specific item. This in addition to specific locations where files could already be uploaded in the item today.

Bulk action allows the export of the selected set of items in RESPONSUM for sub-modules that support the export of items.

Items that have already been selected will not be shown in the selection anymore.

Dropdown (selection) values are now being sorted on their translated name instead of the english name only. Sort order will now be consistent for each language selected.

Step 4 (Circumstances of the breach) has been re-designed to make the flow more logical and user friendly for answering the questions.
