    What’s New


    View and change ownership of reports

    Reports created or uploaded by a user are owned by this user. In the past, you could not change this owner. This could be a problem if, for example, someone decides to leave the company.

    You now have an option to change ownership of your reports.  This new functionality also allows you to see who the owner/author of the report is.


    1. In Live Reporting, click on the top part of the report card. In the top right corner, you can now see an  Information icon.
    2. Click the  Information icon.

    On this card, you can see who is the author of the report.

    If you are not the owner of the report, you can see who owns the report.

    1. In the dialog box, click the  Change ownership button.

    1. Enter the name of the new owner and click Change.

    NOTE: The new owner must be a user in your system.


    Completely redesigned Administration for clients, groups and users

    The Administration module has been completely redesigned.

    The interface has been designed with tabs for items, such as, Users, Roles and Licensing. The tabs you see depend on the level of access you have.

    We have also changed some of the terminology in Administration to better suit our customer’s needs:

    • What used to be called Subgroups are now called Groups.
    • What used to be called Tenants are now called Clients.

    There are three levels of administration:

      As an administrator at the top level, you can set up new clients and create groups and give users authorization as administrators for their groups and clients. You also manage licenses for all groups and clients. See Administration for top level.
      As an administrator at the group level, you can manage users, roles and licenses for your group of clients.
      As an administrator at the client level, you can manage users, roles and licenses in your client in the Portal. See Administration for clients.


    A group is a group of users who have access to create clients.

    A client is a group of users who share a common access with specific privileges in the portal.


    To access the Administration settings;

    • Click Settings and then click Administration.


    As a main administrator, you can organize your users into groups and clients:

    HINT: A group is a group of users who have access to create clients.
