It’s safe to say that March has not been an enjoyable month for anyone, in any part of the world. We at Market Dojo, all now working from home, have attempted to keep on as normal, and I’m incredibly proud of our development team for continuing to produce in these trying times.
Below are a number of changes we’ve been able to include this month.
You may have missed that we have provided a free Covid-19 RFI template within Market Dojo to try and mitigate some of your emerging risk. If there’s any other way you feel we can help, please let us know.
We hope everyone is keeping well and can return to normal life soon.
Linking Questionnaire Deadlines
In sourcing events where you need to configure multiple questionnaires, we were aware that setting multiple deadlines is not always necessary.
In March, we have added a new field against each additional questionnaire that sets the deadline to the same as the previous questionnaire. This can be performed for as many sequential questionnaires as desired. Similarly, questionnaires could be configured into multiple sets each with its own deadline.
When changing the deadline for the first questionnaire in the sequence, all subsequent questionnaire deadlines will automatically update.
Specifying On-Boarding Approvers
When nominating an approval group in SIM, often there is an individual within the group that will be handling the participant. By selecting a ‘nominated approver’, only that individual will be contacted at the relevant stage to make the approval. By leaving the value as ‘Any Group Member’ the functionality will continue to act as before, contacting all group member to approve the participant.
Document Library for Quick Quotes
To make it even quicker to configure Quick Quotes, we have introduced the Document Library that was previously only available in Market Dojo. Documents can be added from the admin menu and then referenced as a part of any Quick Quote.
Notification Period for Contracts
Previously for contracts in Contract Dojo, expiry notification emails would start to send from the beginning of notice period, however in many instances the notice period actually signifies the start of the negotiation period.
With that in mind, users can now also set an Alert Date for a number of weeks before the notice period starts. Notifications will then send from this date through to the expiration date of the contract.
Our development team has also been able to release a series of smaller enhancements across our modules:
In the Works
We’re continuing to adapt to the changing environment and expect to bring you the following features in the next couple of months:
