Axiom Update 3.12.0

We are pleased to announce that Axiom version 3.12.0 is now live!

This update contains the following changes:

Oversight / SMCR Improvements

  • Added controls throughout Axiom which allow you to view ‘Historical’ relationships
    • This affects any mapped item with an ‘Ended’ date provided: for example a person in a job role which has now ended
    • A coloured indicator and ‘clock’ icon will highlight where an historical item may be found
  • You can find these controls on the following pages:
    • Person, Function, and Responsibility cards
    • Person, Function, and Responsibility grids
    • Organisation Design, Reporting Lines, and Responsibility Delegation mapping screens
  • Hid ‘ended’ values in various places by default given the above feature
  • Hid ‘ended’ values (such as previous occupants of a job role) from standard dropdown lists
  • Greatly improved the way Axiom manages Certification/Significant Harm Functions
    • We’ve added Start and End dates to each function, and allowed these to be updated directly from workflow
    • These will directly feed into the (forthcoming!) automated file submission for regulatory submissions
  • Added detailed Certification Function summaries to the person card
  • Improved the display of allocated responsibilities on the Overview dashboard to make it quicker to click through to the list view
  • Added validation to ensure Certification Functions cannot be provided for a person with a start date before their hire date
  • Added the ability to create a workflow with no owner, forcing it to be selected when the workflow is launched
  • Added the ability to press CTRL-S on forms within Axiom to immediately save the form
  • Added the ability to assign specific workflows to a legal entity
  • Added ‘certification legal entity’ to the certificate template designer
  • Fixed an issue displaying job roles with no person assigned on a function card screen
  • Fixed an issue caused when clicking on a job role with no person assigned from the mapping Library pane
  • Fixed an issue where Responsibility Map images would not display correctly
  • Fixed an issue where the ‘loading’ indicator on Responsibility Map tables was not being shown
  • Improved the layout of ‘compact’ tiles mode on the Responsibility Delegation mapping screen
  • The currently selected legal entity will now be retained when navigating away from and back to the Overview dashboard
  • Fixed an issue where SOR changes were not immediately reflected on the SOR list on the left-hand panel
  • Added a Copy button to the SOR page
  • Fixed an issue importing Dates of Birth in certain formats
  • Improved management of sub-responsibilities directly from the card screen
  • Fixed an issue saving ISO-standard Nationality values when setting the Country for a person
  • Fixed an issue tracking previous names when a person’s title changes
  • Added the name of the workflow to the file name for a generated certificate

Third-party oversight

  • Added the ability to directly see the count of attestations done by the ‘master’ who has shared items with you on the matrix grid screens

Inbox Screen and Attestations

  • Fixed an issue where attached evidence would not display properly
  • Added an option to always show subjects on Inbox items

General Improvements

  • Fixed an issue caused by adding ampersand characters (&) to record names
  • Added the ability to drag and drop files into Axiom wherever files can be uploaded
