New Release - April 2017

After our responsive design update a couple of weeks ago, we had a chance to go back and collect up a number of smaller changes that have been waiting in the wings. Here are the latest features and enhancements added to the software as requested by customers. 


Supplier Onboarding - SIM Dojo

Disable notification when approving supplier

In SIM Dojo, participants are automatically notified when a decision is made that affects their status. However, for some customers this decision may be an internal only workflow change.  To prevent participants receiving confusing messages we have added an option to disable the automatic notification.

Hosts can choose not to notify the participant

Remove from groups when approving participants

When re-approving an existing participant, you may wish to change the groups they are associated with. Previously this had to be done from the admin section. Now you can change the participant groups by unticking the groups when approving participants in the individual participant section.

Email updates to scorers

Subject lines reference the participants company name instead of their name, which is easier for scorers to recognise, especially if they are dealing with a large number of participants.

Live chat support in SIM Dojo

One of our most popular support channels, especially for participants, is live chat. This is now immediately accessible by clicking the button that appears on every page of SIM Dojo. 


Questionnaires are used in both Market Dojo and SIM Dojo.

Auto-accept participants

We have changed the default option for ‘auto-accept participants’ to be Yes.
This is usually the right choice and makes for a much better user experience, especially for new users.

Visual feedback on whether questionnaires are complete

It can be hard for participants to keep track of which questionnaires they have submitted, and which are still outstanding. We have added visual feedback on the tabs to show which are finished.

Empty sections in questionnaires

Empty sections in questionnaires can be used to give additional information which doesn’t directly relate to a specific section.
