Version 7.74 of the
EchoSpan platform release includes enhancements to our 360-degree feedback
administrative system and
reporting suite . Brief summaries of the new features and enhancements are
below. We're thankful to all of our customers for their suggestions and feedback
that have led to these great new additions to the platform!
7.74 Release Highlights (P= Professional Edition, E = Enterprise Edition,
A = All Editions)
4x Batch Reporting Speed (A) when administrators batch reports,
the system generates 4 reports simultaneously to increase speed and
efficiency. We've also added a
progress bar for administrators to monitor the status of their reports
as they're generating.
Faster Email Queueing (A) we've enhanced the process to create
summary messages for large projects. When administrators select
Queue All Messages, summary messages will be generated significantly
Single Sign-On for Admins (E) EchoSpan can support SSO access to
the administrative platform now, in addition to existing support for SSO
access to the user tool.
Single Sign-On vs. Local Login Permissions (E) the master
administrator for an account can determine which
authentication will be required for other admins to access the
administrative system. At the project level, administrators can determine
the level of
authentication required for users to access the project.
Historical Benchmarks: Include Sub-accounts (E) historical
benchmarks can be calculated automatically from scores in past projects.
This feature has been expanded to allow
benchmarking from projects across multiple sub-accounts when sub-account
functionality is enabled and benchmarks are calculated from a master account
Benchmarks: Export to Excel (P, E) when manually-defined or
historical benchmarks are created for a project, the administrator can
export benchmark values to excel. This export can be used to load
benchmarks into other projects if needed.
How to Upgrade
Once released, the version 7.74 update is automatically applied to any new,
blank project you create. You can also update an existing project by opening the
project and clicking Upgrade Project in the top right of the project's homepage.
As always, we appreciate our clients' feedback on our product and services.
