In 9.3 we addressed a navigation issue within the alert distribution wizard. You’ll also notice more consistency across our wizards, process consolidation and updated language that should help alleviate confusion and improve your experience.
The first thing you’ll notice when distributing alerts is a focused view. There’s nothing worse than losing your work due to a rogue click on the site navigation. To prevent mistakes that lead to rework, we have removed the system navigation during distribution.
Additionally, closing out of the distribution process now requires confirmation before any work is discarded.
More Consistent Document Picker
Searching and filtering documents is now consistent with our document creating and editing wizard, providing a more uniform experience across Acadia.
To help ensure the document(s) you’re choosing are correct, we’ve added the option to open a document in a new tab by clicking the boxed arrow icon to the right of the document name and description.
Recipient Consolidation: Users
To minimize extra clicks, “recipients” and “recipient details” will be consolidated to one step.
Note: You will also have the choice to turn off the ability for your users to distribute to “everyone”. This can be toggled on and off from
Settings > Alerts > General > Distribution
Similar to the new interface for selecting documents, there will also be a consistent, new interface for selecting users.
Enhanced Message Screen
We've renamed the “Email Notification” step to “Message."
- Say goodbye to 'double greetings.' The message shown is the message that will be delivered. All text is now editable.
- The documents being distributed are now listed, so you know exactly what is being sent out.
One other detail you might notice in 9.3
Alert Settings now includes a separate option for Broadcasts, distinct from Acknowledgement, Quiz, and Evaluation alerts.
