Notification Updates, New Release Functionality & Bug Fixes.

[Feature]  We have introduced a feature to announce new system functionality and bug fixes to the users. A banner, which can be easily dismissed, will be shown to users each time a release of the RAP system is delivered, allowing both users and administrators to find new functionality and see when issues are addressed.

2

[Feature]  You may now accept all notifications at once by clicking the 'accept all' link in the header of the notifications section on your dashboard. This makes handling of notifications and alerts much quicker as individual notices do not have to be dismissed one by one.

3

[Bug Fix]  The risk list was resetting the selection criteria if you went into a risk and then back to the list. This was incorrect behaviour, and you will find list criteria settings are maintained in future

2

[Bug Fix]  There was an issue whereby changes made to an organisation unit by the administrator were not immediately being reflected in the system cache. This meant that users did not see the changes until they logged out and back in. The cache issue has been resolved.

1

[Feature]  The system will now notify risk owner if an action completed. This notification is enabled by default but can be disabled via the system settings under the Maintenance facility.

5

[Feature]  A new feature has been introduced to display the descriptive impact instead of the score within risk lists and risk impact screens.  This is disabled by default but the administrator can enable it by going into the Maintenance facility and then Settings.

1

[Feature]  The notificaitons panel on the dashboard has had the date column removed to improve the overall look & spacing of the panel.
