The CTMS of ResearchManager will be updated to version 6.11. Below, you can find information about the added functionalities and improvements. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the update. Please email your inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In this version, among other updates:
- Quickly identify those with the role of submitter by filtering on "Role" in Management > Users and Roles.
- See only the answered questions in your overview by using a new filter in the Questions Committee component.
- Include only the description or a date from an assessment component in the export - it's now possible.
- Making an export for a specific study is now much easier with a new filter.
- Bug fixes - because nobody wants them.
Read from this point onward for details on all the updates and their explanations.
- Filtering by role in Users and Roles
In 'Users and Roles,' all users can be found, with existing filters for name and employee number. We have now added the option to filter by role, allowing you to check which roles to filter. This makes it easier, for example, to find who the monitor is within a study.
- Send status email only to users linked via a supporting department
For sending emails, it is possible to choose 'Send email only to users linked to the study through the following components.' We have now added the option to also select the 'Supporting Departments' component, allowing users linked through the supporting departments to receive emails, for example, for a process transition.
- Filtering on status in the Questions Committee component
It is now possible to filter on the status of questions in the Questions Committee component. You can select one or more statuses from the dropdown list under the column title.
- The option to make the answer field of a question mandatory for each status
The answer field of a question in the Questions Committee component could, in principle, be left empty while setting the question status to, for example, 'Question answered.' From now on, it can be configured per question status whether there must be something in the answer field to save the question with that status. This setting can be found in the Specific properties of the component. Check the box under 'Answer required' to enable this setting.
- Select which fields from a review component should be exported
Review components could only be exported as a whole, meaning all fields were always included. It might be the case that you only want to see a selection of fields in the export. Therefore, we have added an additional level of selection when you choose a review component for export. The last expansion allows you to see and select the fields in the review component.
- Choose exactly which studies are included in your export
A new filter has been added to the export page, allowing you to select one or more specific studies. You can search for a study by typing in the dropdown list, and of course, you can select all studies.
- Improved the display of the edit pages for certificates and the calendars on those pages
A certificate that has already been added can be edited. Opening the edit option displayed a pop-up that was too small for the content that needed to be shown. Additionally, for adding and editing certificates, the pop-up for the calendar to enter a date was not clearly displayed; the month/year calendar appeared behind the days. We have now adjusted this, ensuring that in all instances where certificates can be edited or added, the pop-up is large enough for the content, and the calendar is displayed correctly.
- New filters on 'Status' and 'Code NZA' in budget components
A filter has been added to the table for the columns 'Status' and 'Code NZA' in budget components. For the 'Status' column, you can select from a dropdown list, and for the 'Code NZA' column, you can search using text.
- Edit status in budget component directly from the table
To quickly update the status of a row in a budget component, we have made it possible to do so directly from the table, without having to open the row.
- Improved the performance of the 'Notification Settings' page
We have improved the performance of the page where notifications can be configured.
- When exporting the study template, the column with the export tags of the components was missing. We have now added that column to the export.
