We are always looking for ways to improve WebActionHero to maintain our status as the best action management software in the world . The latest release of WebActionHero, 4.0.6 includes some new and exciting features to assist project teams.
Actions now have a ‘Finding’ field which allows you to capture the finding that resulted in your action or actions. Findings can be from audits, risk assessments, reviews, studies etc… Action findings will be displayed and filterable by users under My Tasks or Company Tasks. Findings were previously collected informally in the action comments field, but this new specific field will help those that perform audits and risk assessments, where the information leading to the action can be as important as the action itself. And in many cases a finding can lead to more than one action. Users can now filter their task views based on findings, which will allow more effective analysis.
We are very proud of our new recurring actions feature set which allows you to create an action to recur based on a user defined time unit (day/week/month/year) over the duration you want that action to keep recurring. We received feedback from our customers that it would be really cool if important recurring tasks could be captured so that they are not forgotten. We agree and we designed the feature set so that the users have lots of creative flexibility!
A user can now create a Recurring Action Template from the Add Action Menu and fill out the action details the same way you would for any new action. The user is then asked to set the time unit and duration, the start date and the total number of days users will have to complete the action workflow and then assign the workflow. Once the Recurring Action Template is completed, recurring actions will be created based on the specified information you have filled out for that template. Users can delete or disable Recurring Action Templates at any time. Disabled templates will not create new actions, however they can be re-enabled at any time. Deleted templates cannot be recovered, however any actions which have been created by them will be left in place. Users can also make changes to these templates through the edit option in the Recurring Action Template menu.
Thanks to those who contributed to this new feature set. Please enjoy responsibly!
We appreciate all user feedback and will continue to seek out common feature ideas that can benefit our current and future user base.
