Lessons Learned Database v5.3 Release Notes

Sep 18 2017

New Functionality

Enhanced Comments Functionality – For this release we have focused on improving the Comments capabilities with the following enhancements:

  1. Comments are now stored and shown as separate line items in the Comments tab of the Lesson Learned forms.
  2. The number of Comments for a given Lesson Learned is shown in the title of the Comments tab, similar to the number of Attachments.
  3. Individual Comments may be edited or deleted by Account Administrators. Comment creators may also edit or delete their own Comments.
  4. Users may add value to their Comments by selecting one or more statements that describe how they may have applied the Lesson Learned. When the Comment is saved icons that correspond to these applications are displayed along with the Comment. The statements include:
    1. I implemented this Lesson Learned.
    2. I saved money implementing this Lesson Learned.
    3. I incorporated this Lesson Learned in training.
    4. I incorporated this Lesson Learned in a process.
    5. I was not able to implement this Lesson Learned.
  5. These application statements are reported in:
    1. the Lessons Learned Report along with the Comments and
    2. the Export to Excel option with the Comments.
  6. Using the application statements mentioned above, a new KPI has been added to the Lesson Counts and Actions by User Report to represent the number of Lessons Learned that have been applied by a user. This number is shown in the "Applied" column of the report.


Updates and Fixes

Updated Email Formats – Emails sent to Reviewers to prompt their review and those sent to users that need to provide more information at the request of a Reviewer now have a link directly to the Lesson Learned embedded in the email. Users may click the link to navigate directly to that particular Lesson Learned.

New KPI – An “Archived” column has been added to the Lesson Counts and Actions by User Report. This column contains the count of Lessons Learned created by the user and are currently (as of report run) in the Archived status.

Bug Fixes:

  • #1511 – FIXED: Carriage Returns in customized Placeholder Text for Standard Fields prevent the Lessons Learned forms from loading properly.
  • #1512 – FIXED: Quotes and Single Quotes in Placeholder Text for Standard Fields shows HTML encoding in the form.
  • #1513 – FIXED: The “Created” count in the Lesson Counts and Actions by User Report is misreporting Lessons Learned that have been deleted.
  • #1515 – FIXED: The “Accessed column” in Lesson Actions and Counts by User Report is misreporting views of deleted Lessons Learned.
