    Improvements

      • Contact Manager :
        • It is now possible to fill in the "Job Title" field while creating a new contact.

        • We also added a blue background to better differentiate the contact creation area from the contact selection.

      • Workflow Tab :
        • You can now skip a milestone and/or an activity if needed. The skipped milestone/activity will then appear in grey in the workflow.
        • You can choose to use a strict workflow so that users can only run milestones in a precise order.
          This also prevents users from starting multiple milestones at the same time.
          However, the activities can still be started in the desired order.
          (Option to be activated by your Inova Customer Success Manager).
        • If the "Strict workflow" option is activated, users can skip the milestones only in the order defined by the workflow.
          However, the activities can still be skipped in the desired order.

      • Notifications :
        • Activity reminders/notifications are now sent out, whether the activity is started or not.
        • The reminders/notifications are no longer sent when the business object is archived.
      • BIO/EBD Import :
        • We have made various improvements to make this feature more user friendly and also to enhance the relevance of the mapping between attendees and contacts.
        • "Read Only" users can no longer import  BIO and EBD meetings.
        • BIO / EBD import : Users who do not have "Read Write" or Super User" rights to the Asset module no longer see any asset information in the matching screen.

    Bug Fixes

      • It was no longer possible to re-assign an activity or an object in some specific cases ("Access Forbidden" error message). This issue is now fixed.
      • Users are no longer prevented from moving a milestone activity to the first position.
      • When the "Automated Contact Notifications" option is activated, in the email template, the person to contact in case of access/erasure request of personal data under GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is now the user who created/modified the contact.
      • EBD Import : we fixed several bugs that prevented users from correctly importing some meetings.

  • Inova 7.1.96 (January 2019)
    • Inova
    • Version
    • 7.1.96
    • Release date
    • January 15, 2019

     

    Improvements

    • You can now send notifications to groups of contacts.
      • You can select shared and/or private groups.
      • Notifications are sent individually to each member of the group.
      • If a contact belongs to several groups, the notification is sent only once.
      • The email template can be modified to mention all members of the group contacted if needed (to be done by your Inova Customer Success Manager).
    • When you add participants to an existing review ("Choose Participants" button), a warning notice is displayed to ensure that no one involves external contacts by mistake.
      We also added a warning to remind that deleting a contact will also delete his answers.Review_Participants_Warning.png
    • From an Out-Licensing overview, the option to create a new "Out-Licensing Discussion" can now be hidden for the "Quick Create" function if needed (to be done by your Inova Customer Success Manager via a configuration change).

    Bug Fixes

    • Users having Read Write as well as Administrator rights no longer get an error message when trying to assign an object to someone else.
    • The "Company" field is no longer required when creating a user. This way, Administrators with only administrative rights (i.e. with no access to the others modules) are no longer blocked when creating new users.
    We are constantly looking for ways to better serve your needs.
    That is why, starting from this release, you may notice a survey popup to gather your thoughts, insights, and expertise.

    • When someone creates an object and assigns it to another person on creation, the reminder of the defaults activities is now assigned to the new owner (and not to the creator of the object).

    Bug Fixes

    • From an object view, it was no longer possible to save the changes made to fields coming from another object (for example for the "development phase" and "therapeutic areas" fields which come from an asset and are displayed in an opportunity).
      This is now fixed.

    • Document Manager : We now support the "+" sign in the file name.
