Virtual Assistant for Master Information

We have added a virtual assistant to Master Information similar to the authoring environment. The virtual assistant provides contextual tips and best practices to populate the section you are working on. To view the Virtual Assistant, click on the Help icon on the right-hand side of the screen. 

The Virtual Assistant will show tips based on the section that is being worked on. 

Embed a project as a section

Now you can embed a project as a section - this means that you can have an entire submission attached to a different submission (project).  Once you embed a project as a section, Essenvia will attach a PDF of the linked project to the submission. To embed a project as a section, navigate to the project where you want to embed another project and click "New Section" on the top right. 

Choose "Embed a project as a section", then select the project you would like to embed, enter the name of the section and hit "Continue".

Other changes: 

  1. Request Files: We have made improvements to the request files feature within a project to make it easier for you to get the files you need including requesting changes to files that were uploaded by the team member. 
  2. Applicable Standards in Regulatory Strategy in Master Information:  we made under the hood improvements to Applicable Standards so that you can now search faster for standards using either Designation Number, FDA Recognition Number or Title of the Standard. 
  3. Bug fixes: We fixed a few minor bugs in this release.
