Elevate your data management with streamlined exports

In our ongoing commitment to meeting our customers' evolving needs, we've introduced a new category field for hyperlinks. Now, you can effortlessly export actionable hyperlinks to Excel, streamlining your review, reporting, and workflow processes. This means not only improved efficiency but also a smoother, more integrated approach to handling your data.

Boost your review process with enhanced integrity

Understanding the critical nature of the review process in software development, especially in the SxMD realm, we've implemented an optional automatic lock for items under review. This means that once your work is under review, its integrity is preserved—no unauthorized changes can compromise its quality. This layer of protection is vital for maintaining the highest standards of software development and regulatory compliance.

Resolve conflicts with unprecedented ease

Dealing with conflict resolutions before a merge is often a daunting task, marked by significant time investment and meticulous attention to detail. Our latest release introduces a seamless solution: the ability to save your conflict resolution progress and resume at your convenience. This feature not only saves time but also facilitates smoother collaboration, as team members can effortlessly pick up where others left off. In the Software as/in a Medical Device (SxMD) world, where every second counts, this feature ensures that your project momentum remains unbroken, pushing your development process forward with increased efficiency and synergy.

Enhance organizational clarity with Compose

Last year, we introduced Compose, a module designed to let you reuse items or components across projects, significantly saving time and reducing the margin for error. Taking this innovation further, we've now enhanced Compose with the ability to preserve the parent folder structure of included and copied items. This update provides teams with superior visibility and organization, making it easier to navigate and manage project components.
