  • Previously, building owners didn’t have the privilege to decipher the meaning of various status tags. Now, with the new update, when they hover over a status tag, text pops up explaining what that particular tag signifies. For instance, if the tag reads, “Inspection all clear. No review necessary.,” it implies that the building has passed the inspection and doesn’t require further scrutiny. The same feature is extended to BRForms. Here, the status tags mirror the specific value set within the form. For example, if a form’s status tag reads “Failed” or “All clear,” it directly corresponds to the value defined inside the form. This makes the process more intuitive and easy to understand.

Standard Reports

  • Previously, when modifying device details using the modal device editor, issues arose if that device had been removed or replaced. Since the device in question no longer exists in the report, except as a reference, changes to device details should not be required. This situation created confusion, as deleted or replaced devices in the report were still showing as editable. To improve user experience, we’ve refined this feature so details for deleted or replaced devices in the report cannot be edited.
  • Updated modal device editor
  • Proposed Solutions updates
  • Updates to SafetyScan CIHQ report


  • Backend change to Custom VerificationOnly user role
  • Frontend change to Custom VerificationOnly user role
