What’s New? 18 November 2016

Projects: To make the setting up of member projects easier to do you can now create a new research item by searching Forecasts for your chosen topic and then clicking Decide in the Dashboard. This will bring up the Add Project form below and simultaneously load the associated topic spreadsheet.

Assess: While we continue to develop our robot Athena to do even more of the work we recognise the need for a partnership between the machine and you, our members.

This new button allows human inputs of ETA (estimated time of arrival) and Use cases to be added to the robot’s findings, These inputs then appear within the forecast’s Snapshot. We will be adding more human inputted assessments here shortly.

Challenges: A “New“ flag has been added to the Challenges pages to show items that are new this week. Thanks to Andy Coppell for this suggestion.

We have added a new Learn More tab to clients Add Challenges page to better describe how to maximise the use of search terms and associated syntax. Thanks to Maryln Walton at Herman Miller for this suggestion.

Options Analysis: By popular request we have added the ability for members to click option titles and open a powerful version of McKinsey’s 7S strategy framework to flesh out the strategies for each option.

Groups: the groups function now has the ability for admins to set requests to join and messaging rules.
