New Project Features

There are a whole lot of new features related to Projects just released in LANDSCAPE. To name a few:

  • Task status can be compared between component workflows within a Project.
  • The 'My Tasks' window is searchable.

Convert Geography to Issues

I've been meaning to implement this new feature for a while. A customer's request finally made me put it on the top of the pile.

It had always annoyed me that if I uploaded a point with some photos onto a Monitoring Visit map that represented an issue I had to follow up on, I had to also create a new issue separately and upload the same stuff.

Your issue will use the Name and Description of the geography and its Identified On date will be the Visited On or Occurred On date of the visit or management activity.
