Axiom Update 3.20.0

We are pleased to announce that Axiom version 3.20.0 is now live!

This update contains the following changes:


  • Added columns to rules mapping grid screens which count events from mapped tasks for each row
    • This allows you to easily review figures for tasks you have mapped to your processes, controls, and risks
    • You can activate these columns by picking ‘Show task data’ from the ‘Advanced filters’ menu on grid screens
  • Added the ability to ‘enforce’ evidence for a task
    • This prevents anyone from completing the task unless they upload at least one evidence file
    • You can switch this on for a task by selecting ‘enforce’ from the evidence section of the task design page
  • Tasks will now show their description (if any) on the popup shown when completing the task and on the event page
  • Added the ability to upload multiple evidence files at once when completing a task


  • Added the ability to ‘enforce’ evidence for an attestation
    • This prevents anyone from completing the attestation unless they upload at least one evidence file
    • You can switch this on for an attestation by selecting ‘enforce’ from the evidence section of the attestation design page


  • Better support for status changes for employees imported via HR system integration (change of employment type, termination etc)
  • Fixed an issue with case-sensitive validation on e-mail address on HR system imports
  • Added validation to the ‘FRN’ field on the FCA Directory screen
  • Enabled sorting on ID and PRN columns on the ‘People’ grid
  • Added the ability to view (and sort on) separate first and last name columns on the ‘People’ grid
  • Fixed an issue with screen items blinking when using the FCA directory ‘History’ function
  • Fixed an issue where ‘indirect’ reports were not considered in ‘my team’ for the corresponding permission scope


  • Added specific permissions for viewing the ‘History’ tab of each type of item
    • For example, the ‘View Control History’ permissions allows the user to see the history tab for controls
    • You will need to add the relevant permission to any roles that you wish to see history tabs
  • Improved the help wording for certain permission scopes

General Improvements & Fixes

  • Added the ability to customise the ‘support’ email address for your Axiom account
    • This lets you specify an internal support address (instead of Axiom support) as the destination for support enquiries launched from within the app
    • Please contact us if you’d like to change this
  • Added the ability to organise events of different types (attestations, tasks, workflows) when looking at a mapped item card screen
    • The relevant tab is now named ‘Events’ to make it clear that events of different types can be found here (not just attestations)
  • Improved save/cancel options briefly being displayed when saving an RM document
  • Removed brackets from the related issue numbers shown on the ‘Issue task’ grid
  • Added the ability to set a custom order for the ‘Issue task’ grid columns
    • This functionality will be subsequently added to other grids in the same way!
  • Added risk rating scores (as well as labels) to columns in the ‘Risk’ grid screen
  • Improved ‘on hover’ tooltips to allow you to take actions such as select text within, copy, and scroll tooltips where needed
  • Improved the display of description on custom issue field groups
  • Fixed an issue with dropdown items being duplicated when changing chart types within MI
  • Fixed an issue with an error message being displayed on completing an issue task
  • Fixed an issue with notifications not being updated when approving shared items
  • Fixed an issue with timestamps on downloaded issue CSV files
  • Fixed a layout issue with the ‘Risk’ grid screen
  • Fixed an issue with missing data on downloaded issue CSVs
  • Fixed an issue with mapping items directly to topics with the drag and drop interface
