What's New

Android App!
Stuart Nuttall Friday 28 January 2022

Big news for CEMBooks this week.  Our very first CEMBooks V2 Android App hit the Google Play store this week. Please be gentle!!  This is our first foray into the Android world (and about time too, I hear some of you shout).  Future App updates will be released simultaneously for iOS and Android.  

We hope you enjoy using the App and let us know how it goes.  Feedback is always appreciated to help improve future builds and user experience.

So if you want to capture handover, walk arounds, sit reps and escalations while having an organisational phone book and guideline repository in the palm of your hand drop us a message today and we’ll see what we can do to help  get you up and running in just a couple of hours.

Product Update V2.22
Stuart Nuttall Saturday 8 January 2022

Happy New Year everyone from all of us at CEMBooks. We hope you had a peaceful and enjoyable Christmas and are ready to roll into 2022. Winter always seems a daunting time, but the days are getting longer, the nights that little bit shorter and the Spring Classics are just around the corner and we’ll be on our way to Summer.

Most of our sites are now either migrated or in the process of migration across to V2 and we hope to have this completed across all sites by the end of January.

This week we rolled out sprint 22 which included a large number of bug fixes and site improvements.

iOS Improvements

Improved escalation Ux: escalation actions clearer, quicker to go through.
Old escalations removed from list as incomplete decreasing clutter.
Screen & badge notifications: Sign into roles to get escalations and sit rep notifications.
Mentions now notify.
Offline mode: phone numbers, resources list and previously viewed resource content viewable even when offline. Able to see complete comment when typing in comments.

Web improvements:

Sitrep & log titles wrapping improved.
Editing table structures no longer affects previous table structures / reports.
Escalation engine improvements (fewer rollover escalations).
Expired resources can be opened.
Clearer escalation engine structure (action to be performed, who by, when by).
Clearer escalation attribution: escalations completed relate to lates sitrep.
Daytime savings bug fixed.
Ability to add external system system feeds to multiple departments.
Escalations can now be notified to linked departmental roles.
All resources shows all resources.
@mentions in logs and streps now constantly shown in bold across all platforms.
Changing departmental admin no longer produces error email.
Select / search log type box Ux improved.

On the whole a majority of small but crucial fixes which should make the user experience that little bit better! There will be one further big piece of news from sprint 22 but we’ll leave that for another post next week 😉

As always we welcome any feedback or suggestions that we can bring into the roadmap for 2022 from all our users.

Thanks – Stuart and the team.
