Enhancements for Enterprise Scale

February 8, 2024

Version 2.6.1

Feature Enhancements 

  • Pagination for Office Settings: To better accommodate customers with a substantial number of offices, we have introduced pagination to the office settings.

Users can now navigate seamlessly through their extensive office portfolio, enhancing the overall usability of the platform.
  • Office Search in User Edit Screen and Filters: For enterprises with a vast network of over 2000 offices, we understand the challenges of efficiently managing users across numerous locations. In response to this, we've added an office search feature to the user edit screen and user filters. This empowers administrators to quickly locate and associate users with specific offices, simplifying the task of user management in large-scale enterprises.
