The policyIQ elves* are busy working on the finishing touches for version 6.5. As they polish up the next release, we would like to take this opportunity to give you all a sneak peek at what is coming.
policyIQ is all about managing your content – so when it comes to improving the performance and style in policyIQ, what better place to start than with a Page? We’ve redesigned the Page to make it more efficient and a little ‘prettier’. By splitting the page up into tabs, we’ve been able to increase overall performance and provide you with a more streamlined view.
When it comes to editing content, the new design takes out the extra steps (and extra seconds) associated with pop-up windows – putting all of your edit features directly on the page.
Throughout the application, we’re working to streamline activities. Where an alert or question is necessary, we have been changing the pop-up windows to use different technology that will be faster and less intrusive. Stay tuned! While we’ve made many changes for version 6.5, there are more areas of the product that we will be updating in coming releases.
A picture speaks a thousand words
It’s no secret that charts and graphs speak more powerfully to many audiences. Executives and busy managers want an “at a glance” summary of essential information; charts offer a great way to provide that information.
In version 6.5, we’ve implemented charts and graphs into your policyIQ Dashboard and given you a second Charts and Graphs dashboard in the Reports module. Several standard charts will be available, including a breakdown of your site’s content by Template or Folder, a line graph of log-in activity, and a chart of volume and age of expired content.
We will also be offering a new service to create custom charts and graphs. If you have data in policyIQ that you’d like to see graphically represented in policyIQ – we can build one.
Almost every policyIQ client finds themselves importing a large volume of content into the application. It might be a task you complete once when you start using policyIQ, or it might be an on-going activity done frequently. If you have been responsible for content imports, you’ve probably become big fans of our support team over the past year – as they do a great job of getting your content imported quickly.
But even if you love the work they do, we know that most of you would prefer to do it yourself. With version 6.5, the policyIQ application provides you with the ability to Import content from your Excel spreadsheets. (Don’t worry – we’ll be offering some training classes shortly after version 6.5 is released – so you’ll get to be just as proficient as our support team!)
We’re really excited about our next release. There are some new features that we are sure you are going to love – and the increased efficiencies will reduce time spent on every day policyIQ tasks. Don’t take our word for it, though. We asked a few of your fellow policyIQ users to review the new design – and their feedback was overwhelmingly positive. (And they gave us some great suggestions for making the new design even better!)
Look for more information coming soon about the release of version 6.5!
*It’s probably best if you don’t tell the policyIQ development team that I referred to them as “elves”.
