Note Topics drop down list includes new selections


New 'Notes' topics need to be available for admin users when adding notes to a record. The current list is very limited and requires additional options for use.


New 'Notes' Topics have been introduced to enhance user functionality and support a variety of business needs. These topics have been organized in an alphanumeric order, making it easy for users to quickly locate and select the appropriate option. This structured approach aims to streamline the process of adding notes to records, thereby improving efficiency and user experience for administrative tasks.

Drag & Drop enhancements - Document status & handling a blank title


Status of the documents that have been uploaded through drag and drop is ‘Created’, this is inconsistent with other documents that are uploaded.

When the Title field is blank, we should trim the file extension from being saved on the document title section. 


Document Status:

When user uploads document/s through drag and drop, the document status will be ‘Complete' similar to how the status was for regular document uploads.

This behaviour is consistent across all the functions where drag & drop feature is available on the portal.

Blank Document Title:

When user uploads document/s through drag and drop and do not provide any title for the document, instead of leaving the title as blank populate the file name as the title but without file extension.

e.g. instead of “simons-cookie-recipe.ppt“ the document title will be “simons-cookie-recipe“

Self Service Message - Now sends to worker's additional linked branches


There was a recent update to enforce the self service messages only send out to eSS users based on their main branch location. 

Feedback received from clients is that these messages should also go to any additional linked branches.


We made an update to ensure that any worker record that has links to additional branches will also receive the self service messages for that location.

e.g. If user Casey Jones' worker record is located in Melbourne branch, and, also has linked branches for Sydney and Brisbane. Then whenever a self service message is sent to all users in Brisbane branch, Casey will also receive the message.
