Sort Query Builder queries and find your queries faster.

Sort Query Builder Queries Alphabetically

  • Previously, there was no way to sort saved Query Builder queries in the Private and Public folders.
  • Now, clicking on the Private or Public folders once will sort the saved queries inside alphabetically in ascending order (shown by a green arrow pointing up).
  • Clicking again will sort the queries inside in descending order (shown by a gray arrow pointing down).
  • Now, with your queries sorted, they will be easier to find.

New PIR Item column

PIR Item Column

  • Previously, PIR Items did not have a unique, identifying number and only displayed their PIR’s ID number.
  • Now, all PIR Items can be more easily tracked because they have their own PIR Item ID number.
  • PIR Item ID numbers are displayed in a new column in PIR Manager: Item ID.
    PIR Manager with Item ID column
  • PIR Item ID numbers are allocated automatically and sequentially:
    Example: PIT-0000010001, PIT-0000010002, etc.
  • PIR Item ID auto numbering will start at PIT-000005000 so that PIR Items that are already in existence will not be numbered over.

PIR Preventative Measures and Actions and PIR Item Root Cause Analysis Email Template Wizard Updates
