Updates to Document Control for 12/4

At MediaLab, we're continually working with our customers to enhance Document Control. See below for updates planned for 12/4.

There's no action that you need to take. All updates will be applied automatically on our servers on December 4th, 2012. The system will remain functional during updates.

Delegate approval & periodic review permissions
Have a supervisor that's on vacation? Appoint a temporary replacement. The replacement can complete approval steps in lieu of the absent supervisor and will also be prompted to complete periodic review for documents that need it. (Lab director approval and performing employee signoff cannot be delegated.)

Back up selected manuals
In addition to requesting automatic backups of all Document Control data, you can schedule backups for selected manuals. Require department supervisors to download backups of their manuals.

Separate site administrator permissions for Compliance & CE and Document Control
Previously, site administrators had administrator functionality for both Compliance & CE and Document Control. You can now separate these roles -- users can be site administrators for Compliance & CE, Document Control, or both. A user who is not a site administrator for Document Control may still have other Document Control permissions (supervisor, clerical, performing employee, etc.)

Fixed conflict between supervisors and clerical users
Users that have both supervisor and clerical permissions for a document or manual found that they could not complete periodic review for that document. This has been corrected.

Fixed a display issue with permissions for deleted manuals
A few locations showed permissions that were associated with deleted manuals. This has been corrected.
