We've spent much of the last 4 or 5 development cycles bringing new features to fruition. We're now pioneering these with selected customers before general release. During this intermission, we're putting our efforts towards some enhancements, bug fixes and behind-the-scenes stuff. We'll also be asking for your views soon, with our own survey about Citizen Space.
- Previously when creating a consultation, the Audiences, Areas and Interests selection boxes were small and not particularly user-friendly. They'll be much easier to use now.
- We've improved the look of some of the buttons in the software, to make them clearer.
- On the 'Add Consultation' page, you'll now see a preview of the consultation URL, before you create the consultation. This could help avoid excessively long URLs:
- On the 'Responses by Question' view, the headings displayed when responses are grouped are clearer.
- For end-users, we changed the 'Finish' button on the penultimate page of a linear survey to say 'Next'.
- assigning the analyst role to an existing consultation owner no longer removes the owner role;
- assigning a consultation to a new owner no longer removes analyst roles;
- assigned analysts are now shown correctly on the 'Manage Analysts' page.

Until next time folks! But of course, if you want to speak to us in the meantime, we'd love to hear from you.
