- M4 Reportingnow includes the executive dashboard, where executives and managers can log in and see updated metrics and statistics, including customizable performance reports.
- With M4 Process Manager, you can now change the status of a task by right-clicking an assigned task within the M4 Process Manager management page and selecting the task state to which you’d like to transition. M4 Process Manageralso displays notes in the data tab for all tasks associated with the overall process.
- Moving on to M4 Assignment, there are a number of new enhancements in this release. New steal and swap functionality has been added to make stealing and swapping elements an easier process. Users can also quickly add notes and attachments to tickets. While making an assignment, use the element search to easily find the element necessary for that assignment.
