Aconex Reports now released
This month, we’re officially releasing the new Aconex Reports module. This module includes a raft of pre-defined reports along with simple customizations to make reporting on RFIs, Workflows, and Tenders easier.
Aconex Reports will be switched on over the course of the month for all organizations on Aconex. Once it’s available, each Organization Administrator will be able to switch it on for users, which ensures that security and permission controls are maintained. We’ll also be sending an introduction email to help you get started.
In this release, we’re making various improvements to Aconex Reports, too.
Our RFI reports will now allow users to select options within the Sent RFI report. They’ll also be able to select the organizations that they want displayed in the RFI reports.
We’ll introduce two new Mail Overdue and Outstanding reports that allow the selection of a mail type. And we’ll introduce the first of our basic custom reports, which will allow users to build on a basic report by adding more columns. Now they can pick and choose from a select list to configure exactly the data they want displayed.
Working on Workflows
We have an exciting enhancement to Workflows coming soon. To support that, we’ve removed the ability to sort by workflow review outcome fields in this release. Users can still filter the data by these values, so targeted searching is unchanged. Of course, sorting can also be done in an Excel export of search results.
We've also added links to our Workflows delegation and reassignment emails. Now, when users delegate or reassign a workflow step to a colleague, that person will be able to access the relevant workflow directly from the notification, and from there, see the documents they need to review.
Single-select fields included in APIs
Earlier this year we made ten new single-select fields available for document metadata.
This release includes them in the Document APIs, so that API clients can now include them in their applications.
- We corrected an issue that prevented users from sending Tender Addenda if they included a registered document, and a recipient whose Aconex account had been disabled.
- We fixed a bug that allowed users to register documents with hidden “space” characters left in them by external applications.
- We rectified a problem that prevented users from superseding documents using supersede candidates if they were associated with a review outcome in the Workflows or Supplier Documents modules.
