Release Notes: Version 7.63

EchoSpan is pleased to announce the release of version 7.63 of its 360-Degree Feedback platform, set for August 13, 2016. This is an interim release and includes a mixture of new features and enhancements/fixes. The version 7.63 update is automatically applied to any new, blank project you create and will be applied to existing projects at the beginning of September.

Release Highlights

Manager Initiated Review Capability
You can now enable Managers to initiate reviews for their employees. Managers can easily enroll their employees in any active project in your account and, depending on your project settings, select their raters and send out the rater invitations.

*This feature is available with the Enterprise Edition

Auditor Release of Email
A setting has been added to allow Auditors to release rater emails. The emails to raters will be released upon the Auditor's finalization of a Target's rater list.

Display Historical Benchmarks on Reports
You now have the option to compile historical benchmarks for your account and display them on your Targets' reports. You are able to select the projects from which you would like the data compiled prior to running reports in any project.

*This feature is available in the 360 Enterprise Edition

Updated "Then vs Now" Report Components
Our change over time report components have been updated to let the admin output average scores for the last 2-4 review instances and display the results on a bar graph.

There are two new editable report components as part of this feature:

  • Change Over Time: Individual Items
  • Change Over Time: Competencies

Forgot Password Email Templates Added
The email participants receive if they click "forgot password" upon login is now editable by the administrator. There are separate templates for Targets and Raters.

Upgrade Your Projects On-Demand
You now have the ability to update any of your projects running an outdated version of our code to the latest version. This can be done from the Home page of the project with the simple click of a button.

*If your account has customizations in place this option may not be available to you.

Keep an eye out for additional new features coming soon. As always, we appreciate your feedback on our product and services.

As a reminder, we offer a question and answer session each week that is an open forum for customer questions. One of our Senior Client Service Managers leads the interactive session and will address any product questions you have. A link to the signup page is available here: .

Please note that if you have engaged us for user-interface customizations on your account, we will not update your account to version 7.63 automatically. Contact us for upgrade options.

Thank you for choosing EchoSpan for your employee feedback and review needs.
