This Month's Updates ...
1. Bulk Data Download - Project level data export from a programme
As the programme area grows, we are pleased to announce a recent update that will excite many of our Life QI users. Project measure data on a programme previously required you to go into each project listed on the programme and individually download each measure which for some was hundreds. The new update will now allow users to export all of the project measure data into one Excel spreadsheet, saving a lot of time and effort!
The following information is included in the export:
- Project Name
- Project Measure Title
- Project Data
- Data collection phase (baseline, test or sustain)
- List of PDSA cycles that are attached to that measure
- Special Cause Variation detection
- Any annotations on the measure
2. Translation Update
Firstly, we would like to thank our users for their feedback on the recently introduced translation functionality, keep your comments coming, we love to hear your thoughts and experiences 👍! As we continue to tweak and update the translation of the platform, we can confirm that you can now set your language preference to American English.
This setting is found in the Preferences section of your Profile. Read how to set your language setting.
