EchoSpan is pleased to announce the release of version 7.62 of its 360-Degree Feedback platform, set for May 15th, 2016. This is an interim release and includes a mixture of new features and enhancements/fixes. The version 7.62 update is automatically applied to any new, blank project you create and will be applied to existing projects at the end of this month.

Release Highlights

  1. Target and Rater project search: You can now search for Targets or Raters from the 360 project homepage. You can search by name or email as well as across active or all (active and archived) projects.

  2. Updated “About This Report” report component: Raters are now counted as “Responded” in the About This Report Response Summary section if they are In-Progress or Finished AND have a response to at least one item.

  3. Legal Scan on/off switch: You can now turn the Legal Scan button (found on pages with comment box items) off in any project from the Setup menu option >> Advanced settings in the Raters and Responses section.

  4. Rater activity logging: We now record the date/time a rater begins or finishes a survey. This information can be exported by running "Export #2 Status Report: Rater List" on the Export Data Files page.
