Development Update, October 17, 2010

Recent functionality and interface updates include:

• Implemented a new “multimenu_text” data format in the Inform module that facilitates gathering multiple data elements in response to a single question, using a format similar to the following:

Multimenu_text data input format

• Upgraded the Statistics menu available to Admin users to optionally display tables providing a listing of total daily registrations, submissions, and review completions.  This enables a more precise indication of relevant trends.

• Added the ability to configure a “maximum” and/or “minimim” value for numeric and currency fields.  Users that provide a number that lies outside the range will be notified of that fact via a popup alert.

• Further enhanced the existing capability of the system to support “conditionality” based on segmentation criteria.  This features enables various questions / data inputs to be flagged as “conditional”, to be displayed only to proposals matching a specified segmentation criterion.  This functionality is useful in situations where it is desireable to customize the data inputs, or the wording of questions, based on whether a proposal fits into a specific category.

• Continued the process of migrating online instructions to a WordPress platform, which enables Admin users to directly edit and maintain online instructions provided to users and reviewers. To support this required configuring the WordPress platform to support both http and https protocols, since some browsers display security warnings when a web page contains both encrypted content, whereas other browsers will not support iframes where the source is https on a different domain

• Fixed issue on registration which under certain circumstances caused an exception for browser locales other than English or French

• Fixed an issue where the Proposal Status page was generating an exception in cases where a Part had not yet been created

• Upgraded the Benchmark Support platform to make automated email responses bilingual
