This announcement was issued by the ACTIV providers, those who use this system should have now noticed the changes and the reports we have are very positive:
In October we’ll be refreshing Activ to give it a more modern look and feel. Along with the new styling, the main change you’ll notice is the improved Home screen, where we’ve simplified the way that Activ’s features are grouped and accessed into a new menu and added an action manager to help you get the most out of Activ.
The way that Activ’s existing features work is not changing and we’re confident that you will find the new menu self-explanatory and will enjoy using the new-look system.
So that you know what to expect, we’ve outlined the main changes below.
Home Screen – we’ve simplified access to all parts of the system into a cleaner menu on the left of the screen and added a new feature: an at-a-glance action manager summarising actions assigned to you and your ‘To Do’ list.
My Details – manage all your personal information and Activ settings in one place, including login details and Notifications. The Notifications feature has been extended to include many more immediate alert options and we’ve also made it more configurable so you can select exactly what you do/do not wish to be alerted about.
Processes – now accessed from the menu and includes Process Reviews.
File Manager – all file storage and management features have been grouped together into one module. It houses all libraries including Records and Controlled Documents (Templates) plus File Reviews, Search and Recycle Bin.
Customers & Suppliers – all third party information is grouped together here. In addition to all your Companies information, it houses Contacts, Communications, Feedback and Supplier Assessments.
The switch was made on Monday 19th October and the system now has a more modern look and feel and we’re confident that you’ll enjoy using it. All your data will be secure and the way that Activ’s main features work is not changing. Along with the new styling, the main difference you’ll notice is the improved Home screen, where we’ve simplified the way that Activ’s features are grouped and accessed into a new menu and added an action manager to help you get even more out of Activ.
