EASy version 2.0
We’ve made some big changes to the EASy application, and are hoping to make some strides towards providing you with a better experience while applying, advising and reviewing applications for endorsement.
As we work towards building a better application, we occasionally introduce changes both technical and in our approach to support to help create faster, more flexible tools for Applicants, Advisors, Reviewers and Administrators. As you may be aware, Microsoft recently made announcements regarding “End of Support” for their Windows XP (and along with it, Internet Explorer version 8): http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/enterprise/end-of-support.aspx.
Due to Microsoft recently announcing they will no longer provide support (security updates, bug fixes or feature updates) for Windows XP users, We urge all users to begin accessing EASy on machines with versions of Windows higher than Windows XP. While the operating system is currently compatible with EASy, if you experience issues while using it we may not be able to offer a complete resolution in all cases. In time, Windows XP will no longer be completely compatible with EASy. In conjunction with this change, we no longer provide support for versions of Internet Explorer below version 9.0, so we also encourage you to update IE if you are using an outdated version.
For those users affected, the simplest option would be to upgrade your operating system (which will also upgrade your version of Internet Explorer) - alternately, it may be an option to install a third-party modern browser, which is not affected by the changes:
The primary motivation behind this decision is to support the following changes to the EASy system, and to provide us with a way to move forward and take advantage of improving technology to build a better software application. The following changes are also part of this update:
Improved reference rating process
All reference ratings now show the date/time it was completed by the rater. Because reference ratings are only valid for one year from the date of completion, this will help us track when a new rating might be required if the applicant is resubmitting.
When submitting comments and editing competencies, a visual indicator will “pause” all other operations until the change/comment is complete.
The comment column can be “hidden” on each page, but can be toggled back with the click of a button. This will make the overall page more readable, but should also help prevent accidentally leaving the page without saving an application.
When a notification about a new Comment is received, the link in the email will take you directly to that Comment if you are already logged in to EASy*.
EASy application lists are now paginated and sortable/searchable (admins, advisors, reviewers).
EASy is now compatible with mobile devices - one of the major changes has been to adopt a responsive user interface, which will adapt to a wide range of screen and device sizes.
Messaging (email notices) has been migrated to a service, which has greatly improved delivery to all email addresses, both personal and professional.
* We are currently finalizing a few additional features, and will follow up with future notices by email, and here on the login screen.
