Quartz UI Improvements to Home, Hubs and Spaces now support Themes

Hubs and Spaces now show themes based upon their Schema Classification or Schema/Sub-schema. This helps users understand their context throughout the system and easily delineate between Projects, Programmes, Assets, Locations, etc.


Portlet Configuration allows Home, Hubs and Space custom Views

Out of the box BCDE comes with built-in Views such as Listing, Dashboard and Map. In version 7.4 it is possible to add additional custom Views. A custom View can show an additional set of portlets in a desired layout. Custom Views may be configured for the Home, a Hub or Spaces.


Auto Filing from a Space

Dragging and dropping files directly into a Space may be configured to initiate the Auto filing process. Documents will be filed according to their name and the rules defined on the server. You will be warned if the name of the Documents you are uploading conflicts with the Space you are attempting to upload them to.


Import many Placeholders from a CSV file

Importing Placeholders from a CSV makes it simple to create a set of information requirements or bring information across from another system in a controlled manner. Add up to 1,000 Placeholders in a single go and set their metadata.

More usability improvements include:

  • The left-hand panel has been split into a set of tabs, including My Spaces, Layers and the new Legend tab.

  • The Colors of the map pins are now dictated by the Theme set for the Schema Classification/Schema/Sub-schema for each Space. The Legend tab indicates the meaning of each color.

  • Pins are clustered together when zoomed out and there are many close together. The selected panel has been overhauled to show many selected items with greater clarity.
