Here's a rundown of new and upcoming EdSmart features for March.

We're back with a fresh edition of New Features and Updates for March. Check out our latest updates below to ensure your school is getting the most out of EdSmart. 

1. Continued improvements to our performance

EdSmart engineers have continued working behind-the-scenes to stabilise and improve the platform's performance. Our focus on performance is ongoing, and we're pleased to have already received positive feedback from our customers as we progress on this front. Be assured that all feedback is taken seriously and we are continuously moving forward on your behalf.  

2. Configuring of data from Process Overview to 1st Form in Process (Transform customers)

You can now automatically map basic details available from the Process Overview screen to the 1st Form in a Process.

With details like Activity Name, Date and Time being recorded when the Process is initiated, we encourage you to take advantage of the Process Mapping, which automatically fills these details into the 1st Form.

You just need to ensure the Process Design has been setup beforehand so you can see the information flow through.

3. Viewing attachments from Slip Response page

This handy feature can help you quickly download attachments straight from each individual response. You will notice that the attachment is hyperlinked at the bottom. This allows you to review the contents of the attachment within a Slip's Response, if you wish to do so.
