Guest Users

You can now create Guest User accounts, giving restricted system access to people outside your organisation, and be confident that they don’t have any more access than you explicitly grant them. This lets you retain the privacy, confidentiality and security of your system, while giving them a window into data that you need them to access. Guest accounts could be used when you need to grant someone temporary access for a process such as a site induction or an audit. This could be vendors, contractors, or even members of the public.

These accounts can be created at the touch of a button within a form or scheduled event, allowing the accounts to be integrated into an automated process, without having someone manually manage them.

* Note: the user will still need access to the web application (I.e through your firewall if on-site), as this is an application security measure.

Tabular Reports: Drag and Drop Column Editor

The column editor in tabular reports is now much easier to use:

You can drag and drop columns to re-order them. You can also specify an ‘Alias’ or a preferred name for a column, making reports easier to understand for your users.

We have also added a new column type: the Advanced Column. This column lets you specify any kind of filter expression, e.g. 1 + 1, or ([DateLastUpdated] – [DateCreated]). As you may imagine, this can give you a lot of power to put useful information into your reports that previously would have been quite difficult.
