News in Atea Zephyr 2.7.2

  • New onboarding functionality
  • Approvals/Request list changes

New onboarding functionality

Tweaks and changes for onboarding users has been made. The changes are mainly regarding how an approver is selected, the default behavior for a new user should not be to select their own approver. Instead the approver should be set automatically if possible and be left empty for an Administrator to set if no automatic way is possible. If an Azure AD is connected the onboarding process will look at the user’s manager attribute and set the manager to approver. If the manager field is not set or if an Azure AD is not connected it will look at the tenant default approver setting and use that as approver. If no default approver is set the approver will be left empty. The users profile picture will also be gathered from the Azure AD if a profile picture exists.

For the case that the approver is not set we have improved User view for Administrators so that it is easy to distinguish which users that do not have approvers and need to have an approver assigned.

If a user does not have an approver set the user cannot put requests in Zephyr.

Approvals/Request list changes

The approvals and requests page have received small changes so that it is easier to see what type of request is put, now the name of the form will be visible rather than the type of the form. We have also changed which columns have priority in mobile view, so an approver can see which request are approved or need to be handled.

Favicon

The Zephyr logo now exists as a favicon on the zephyr page. This means that the browser will show the Zephyr logo in the active Zephyr tab and if saved as a bookmark.

 

What’s next?

In the next iteration we will start planning and sketch some major administrator changes for forms and software. We will also redesign the member element so the graphics for forms where it is used is improved and in the same time make it more general, so it can be used in more use cases. Picture uploading for service desk tickets will get an overhaul.

Hope you enjoy our new release and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us!
