July - September 2019
Support for HTML formatted emails
SureCloud now supports sending HMTL formatted emails. This means emails generated by SureCloud applications and sent to end users can now be formatted and branded according to an organisation’s needs. These emails can include corporate logos and links to other resources as well as paragraph formatting (colour, font, size) to suit requirements.
Update Time zone and Locale
Organisations and users are now able to set and update their desired time zone and display locale for displaying time/date fields. This means the time zone (and all date fields) can reflect your geographic location.
Allowing of IDP authentication requests for SSO
Administrators can extend corporate Single Sign-On environment to include SureCloud authentication requests. SureCloud supports both IDP (Identity Provider) and SP (Service Provider) initiated authentication requests against all major identity providers. More information here:
Enable PDF exports of Portlets/Dashboards
Users and organisations are now capable of downloading PDFs of Dashboards, ranging from single portlets to entire Dashboards. This enables users to produce simple and clear PDF reports based off key information in Portlets, enabling distribution to stakeholders not on the SureCloud Platform.
Scheduling and Emailing of Dashboard Reports
Users can now configure PDF'd dashboards to be automatically emailed to defined email recipients at specific times. This means that key stakeholders can be regularly informed of programme status' through email.
New Risk Heatmap Portlets
Users can now report off 2 series of data simultaneously (eg Likelihood and Impact) in a risk heat map. Users can view the impact of a risk on the X-axis and the likelihood of a risk on the Y-axis, allowing for clearer analysis of risks.
Permission Toggles for various Toolbar Functions
Users can toggle a permission groups access to certain functions on the toolbar. This means that users’ ability to access functions, such as response history (the ability to view when a form has been modified) or inserting sections (the ability to add lines in a form) can be restricted so that Administrators can have more control over what their end-users see/do.
Tile Display Changes
Tile icons have been made 25% smaller, while the size of the text has been kept the same, allowing for an increased amount of space for text on the tile. Up to 3 wrapped lines of text can now be displayed in the tile description.
