Notable Changes Since

Manager Reports

Vantage Ultimate features a number of changes to make publishing reports for managers in your organization much easier. You can now manually assign managers to each group on the Organization tab (originally introduced in, publish reports for each manager (rather than for each group), and the modified 'publish to web module' wizards make it easier to understand what reports or storages will be published and who will have permission.

Here's a video describing how to use the features in more detail:

Full Change List

Vantage Application:
ADDED: Manager Subordinate reporting for Web Module publishing. This allows you to select a manager from your Organizational structure and generate a report based on their subordinates (either their immediate subordinates or all subordinates under them in the organization tree).
ADDED: New Split & Permit page replaces the Separate and Permission pages when publishing reports and storages to the Web Module.
ADDED: A new All Users view has been added to the Organization screen. Previously there was only the option to view by Group or by Hierarchy.
ADDED: You can now Duplicate, Copy and Paste Task Actions. This is a huge time saver if you need to produce many 'Publish Report' task actions and only change a specific setting, such as a Department filter.
ADDED: Organization option: "Find Missing assigned managers" which exports all missing managers to a text file (if there are any).
ADDED: Web Module permission to turn on/off schema and/or template analysis
ADDED: You can now publish a Storage to the Web Module via the Storages tab in Vantage.
ADDED: You can now publish a Report to the Web module via the Reports tab in Vantage.
ADDED: When a Storage input is edited, the user is now notified if a reload is required.
ADDED: Manual filter expression function "GetAliasCount" has been added to allow you to generate the number of alias groups in a given alias. eg. GetAliasCount("Usernames") returns the number of alias groups in the Usernames alias.
