The focus of this release was to further improve the Tagging of users on an approval, along with various changes to the Feedback Report screen.
- AD-1437 Approvals > Ability to Tag any user on a markup
When adding Markup on an approval request, typing an @ will now allow you to Tag specific users to alert them to your markup, just like a tag on Facebook or Instagram. For example, if you saw some text on a page and wanted to ask "Jane" a question about it, you could type your question and then add @Jane. A notification would be sent to Jane and she would be able to access the page and Reply to your question.
If you tag a user who is also an approver, they would be able to see all of the feedback that they could previously, along with any other markups they were tagged in. The tagged mark-ups will have a darker background to stand out from the rest.
If you tag a user who is not an approver, then they will only be able to see the markups they were specifically tagged in.
- AD-1438 Approvals > Move Feedback Report into the Full Screen Approval View (Stage 1)
In a coming sprint, we will be removing the Feedback Report screen and will replace it with the Full Screen Approval view with extra capabilities. To begin this process, we have had to move the button used to access the Feedback Report.
You will be taken to the Full Screen Approval view where you will be able to see all of the feedback and export it "as is". If you need to modify any of the comments, then you will need to switch to a "Feedback Mode" to edit and export any feedback.
- Full Screen Approval View > Remove Duplicate information at the top of the screen
In the Full Screen Approval view, information that was shown at the top of the screen and then duplicated in the right side panel. We have now removed this duplicate information from the top of the screen.
Note: These items are only available to organisations who have access to the Resources module. If you would like more information on this, please contact your admation liaison.
- AD-1442 Self-Assign Task Improvements
If you are a member of an organisation where you would be expected to assign tasks to yourself, you will now have access to a new tab in the Tasks module, which allows you to see any unassigned tasks. From there, you can assign a task for yourself to work on.
- AD-1444 Review Feedback Screen > If feedback has been collated, the name of the person who made a comment should be next to that comment
Scenario: I have submitted an approval request to Ben. Ben has forwarded the request to John and Jane. John and Jane have responded, Ben has collated their feedback, so that it forms part of his own comments, and has responded to me.
When I look at the feedback, it will now show John and Jane's names against any comments they made, unless Ben modified a comment that John or Jane made. In that case, Ben's name would be shown against that comment.
- AD-1446 Forward Approval > Project details not shown
If you forward an approval request, the recipients will be able to see the project details by rolling over the "i" button in the top left corner.
