This release has seen multiple bug issues resolved as well as many continued platform and feature upgrades to ensure that Amplify remains at top performance as we head into the holiday period.
Project Brief Updates
This release has seen many updates made to the Project Brief feature based on user feedback.
Completed Stage Display
We've redesigned the way completed stages look to make it clearer that the Project Brief is no longer editable for that particular stage.
If the baseline option is enabled, these completed stages will show a snapshot of the data entered into the Project Brief at the successful completion of that stage.
|Active Stage||Completed Stage|
Simplified RAID Widget
The RAID widgets have now been consolidated into a single widget displaying all of the classifications in one place. This will make it easier to get an overall view of items in most cases.
Customisable Text Area Fields
Text area fields can now be customised to your preferred height. Instead of being limited to approximately four lines of text being displayed before scrolling, text area widget heights can now be adjusted to allow more or less text to display before scrolling.
You'll see now when editing the Project Brief template that there is a horizontal grip icon at the bottom of the widget. Click and drag on this icon to adjust the height.
Note: This is only for custom field textareas.
Sub Heading Widget
The sub heading widget is a new widget to complement the existing heading widget. This widget allows for custom text to be added to the Project Brief template but in a smaller font than the heading widget.
You can find the new sub heading widget in the list of available widgets through the Project Brief template builder.
|Project Brief View|
The Project Brief feature can now be turned on or off for your program or initiative classifications. Using the toggle in the configurations, you can enable or disable the feature without losing your template.
The Project Brief can now be set as a default landing page for initiatives. Previously labelled "Default Dashboard", the newly labelled "Landing Page" option has Project Brief included as an option. The landing page determines which page a user will see first when navigating to an initiative.
The user experience for the hierarchy feature has been improved by making it more context sensitive and focussed. Previously, the hierarchy would automatically alter its filters based on the current item being viewed. For example, if you are viewing a 'goal' the hierarchy would show all the goal items as well.
The update in this release removes the automatic filtering for initiative items. This will reduce the visual clutter, that is otherwise unexpected, when trying to navigate through the hierarchy.

Scenario Planner Updates
The scenario planner has been updated to include archived initiatives that contribute to a scenario in the list of initiatives. Previously, archived initiatives would not be displayed in the scenario planner.
Archived initiatives are denoted in the scenario planner table with italicised text.
Filter With Custom Fields
Custom fields are now available as a filter for scenario planning criteria. When creating or editing a custom field, check the box Enable filtering graphs based on the values in this field and it will appear in the list of available criteria.
On the scenario planner dashboard, click on the Add Criteria... dropdown and scroll to the Custom Fields section. Selecting a custom field will add a new criteria widget to the dashboard.
