May Roundup - 01

 This Month's Updates ...

This summer the development team are working on a variety of exciting new features and refreshing some of the current functionality. A system is never complete, as times change and the desire for new ways of working flourish, we continue to advance Life QI to ensure it continues to be user friendly and has the tools available to help support and achieve fantastic improvement work. 


Over the summer we will be working on:

1. Edit fields with ease

Recent feedback has prompted us to begin development on revising the way users can edit fields in the platform. Currently you have to be in 'Edit Mode' by clicking the 'Edit' button in order to change text in any field throughout the platform. Upcoming developments will smooth out this process and remove the 'Edit' button altogether. You will be able to click in any text field across the platform, amend the text and when you are ready there will be a prompt with a 'Save' button asking you to save all the changes you have made. This prompt will count the number of changes you have made and ask you to confirm that you would like to save all changes.


  Edit Fields Life QI


This is a substantial modification to the platform and is currently in test phase. Detailed information about this update will be communicated over the coming months.


2. Workflow Addition - More control to role select lists 

Admins of workflows will be aware that the Life QI system at present only allows for free-text search to be applied. The extra control to role lists will ensure that admins can restrict the options to only the groups that represent their department, directorates or any other roles they use to categorise their projects.


Note: Workflows are an add-on so not all users will have access to this function.


3. Charting

Exciting progress is being made on enhancing our chart selection. As we rebuild the measurement area of the Life QI system new charts will be added with Pie Charts and Pareto Charts being thrown into the mix!
