01.22.2016 Release Notes
Happy New Years! Crisis Track has been busy adding some enhancements based on your experiences in the EOC and in the field. Here are some updates we’ve made the past month:
Console Usability – We organized the modules by functionality to improve the console's usability, especially for those screens like the admin console that have many buttons. Similarly we changed breadcrumb colors when you are in a municipal view and added a short cut
Commander Role – We had some requests to add a user group who can create their own incidents without having them be an Administrator. This is the Commander role. Feel free to assign it to those in your organization who may want to create an Incident but who doesn’t need to have access to all of the functionality in the Admin Console.
Incident Wizard – To help implement the Commander Role, we added the Incident Form on the home page. Now Admins and Commanders can add incidents without having to be in the Admin Console.
Better Tools for Selecting and Assigning Structures – we added a polygon and a freehand “lasso” tool to help you more quickly and specifically assign structures to damage assessment teams.
Offline Maps on Mobile Apps – we improved the usability for offline maps on the Android and iOS devices. Now, it’s just a single click to get a type of map background for the offline maps. When you log into the mobile device, click on Settings in the Incident Screen to load offline maps.
New Equipment Rates – FEMA recently updated their rates for the FEMA Cost Codes. These new rates are now available for equipment time tracking.
For those on the East Coast be safe as this blizzard makes its way through the region today.
As always, please let us know if you have any questions, ideas or issues.
