New feature – dashboards!

We are happy to announce that the latest incremental release of Civil Pro (version 83) introduces our dashboards. These dashboards provide status summaries for Lots, NCRs and Test Requests including;

  • Status to date
  • Status by user
  • Monthly activity by status
  • Status at EOM

Statuses are simply the phase of the document at a given time e.g. for lots this would be Open, Guaranteed, Conformed or Rejected. For NCRs, it is raised, requested, approved or Closed Out.

In addition Civil Pro reports on Lots / NCRs / TRs open for longer than a given time (60 days by default). All dashboard charts are reportable
