Release Notes - 22.11.01
Sprint Goal: Replace older style SSRS reporting in Colleague 7 with a more current data table/charting solution for UI and performance benefit.
Upgrade Date: 13/11/22
REPORTS - Replace Older Style SSRS Reports With Updated Data Tables
The original versions of Colleague's standard reports were built using SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS).
Example of SSRS report:
SSRS is no longer supported within Microsoft Azure. As a result, Colleague have redeveloped our standard reports and will be deploying the below updated versions as part of this release:
This update offers significant performance benefit to the hosting web servers and end users when loading, sorting and exporting reported data. The newer style reports also include a 'Save as Default' option to default the parameter criteria.
Further updates will follow with regards to the remaining reports.
BACKGROUND SERVICE - Performance Updates
As part of our ongoing efforts to optimise backend processing, the below updates have been delivered:
USER OVERVIEW - New User Overview Dials
Two additional user overview dials will be available as part of this release:
PLACEMENT - View Commission Splits from Placement Selection Screen
An additional column option has now been added to the Placement Selection Screen, so that users can view Commission Splits from this area:
CANDIDATE - New Candidate Summary
As part of our SSRS project to replace the standard reports, this release includes a new Candidate Summary tab in theme with the recent Team Overview updates:
Summary View - Performance Update
Several updates have been applied to ensure the request for Summary View data occurs on demand rather than via an asynchronous call in the background. This update removes unnecessary loading and backend processing when dealing with Search Results, Selection Screens and Requirements with a high volume of Candidates.
Performance improvements were also delivered surrounding the management of column sorting when the Summary View was in use.
Broadbean Export (Salary - 4 Decimal Places)
It was raised that the Broadbean posting process would upload minimum and maximum salaries with four decimal places. This has been updated to be two.
Cancel Interview to Give Option to Delete Associated Calendar Entry
Further to the update in the previous sprint to ensure, when editing an interview, it updated the associated Calendar entry in Outlook.
There is now a further check when cancelling an Interview which will ask if you wish to delete the entry from your Calendar.
Cannot Send SMS More Than Once Without Refresh
It was raised that once you have sent an SMS message from a record, if you then tried to send a message a second time the 'Send' button was unresponsive.
This has now been resolved.
