How it works…When adding an Email Reminder for an activity via the Content Manager, you can now send a customised email when a user first registers.

Slight Changes in the order of forms within the Forms Homepage Portlet

Is it a new feature or an upgrade?This is an upgrade to the Forms Portlet which is visible on the homepage of sites using Training & Compliance.
How it works…The Forms Homepage Portlet now displays incomplete forms/appraisals first, those which are yet to be started second, and forms/appraisals of managed staff third.
Why is this beneficial?Giving priority to incomplete forms/appraisals means there’s less chance of starting a new task before finishing an old one.
Default or configurable?This feature is automatically available in SkillsServe 4.9 when using the Forms Homepage Portlet.
