Do you know what is even more invigorating than that? A new release from Workhub! Here are some of the highlights:

On a worker’s profile, click Clear to remove the hire date. 📅
Speaking of hire dates.... A ‘Hire date’ filter has also been added to the admin worker list. 🌪️
Speaking of filters... The Certificates Matrix Report lists a date for coming due items.
Speaking of....orange you glad I didn’t continue this bad joke? haha 🍊
Policy Contact, Revision Date and File Type are new columns included on Policy List Report (csv).
The email notification for Policy Comments has been updated. 📫
Critical issue notifications and incident submission notifications were added to the list of responsibilities that can be reassigned from a worker’s profile (or when making them inactive.)
If you’re feeling a bit creative (read: slightly bored) customize the style, background, logo and more of your scratch cards. This feature is part of the Rewards component. 🎨
The Policy version history report has been moved to prior versions tab under each individual policy. This report was previously on the Admin - Policy List.

A new status to show that compliance has been reset on online training rather than ‘not started’.
Here’s a list of bugs that have been evacuated:
Some issues with the dashboard workers picture not loading correctly have been addressed.
If the setting to display a location/division on a certificate was enabled, a glitch seemed to display the company name instead.
Not requiring Inspection comments actually requiring them. Somehow that didn’t seem right. 🤔
Subcontractor certificate settings not functioning correctly.
Workhub Version 4.30.0
Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. Here at Workhub, we had a great company bbq with lots of good eats. This release has some new functionality for your consumption too.
Action Items had a whole revamp. There are many little goodies, like how you can now upload images and documents at any point in the action item process, more intuitive controls and more! 🌠
Infinite scroll is rolling out! You’ll see this amazing new feature in Procedures first! What does this mean? No longer fiddling with the paginator, instead you can just scrroolllll. 🖱️
We had a bug with inactive policies reverting to a prior version when they were made active, which has been resolved. 🐛
The rewards item page has been updated with a new look! 👀
When a course has been completed, the time remaining will be hidden to avoid any confusion. 👾
Sorting by column headers on Online Training will organize optional items too.
Tweaks to the search bar in Procedures for easier navigation...meaning, it’s a little bit smarter now. 🕵️
We added an “expires every” column to the online training report which shows the option you have selected under the course settings. 🤓
The amount of rewards points will be shown on the rewards tile on your dashboard. 🛒
We’ve updated the filters for inactive workers. Any positions without hr & notes permissions will simply see the inactive filter on the workers list, and other statuses like released or terminated will be greyed out. When viewing inactive workers, the compliance column will only say inactive and not terminated or eligible for rehire. For any Admins with hr/notes permissions, all of this functionality will stay the same. 📏
Nazem Kadri is joining the flames hooray! Not technically a release note but I just had to slip this one in here. 🔥
There was some inconsistency with training expiration dates depending on what page it was accessed from, which is now fixed. 🍉
Also, an inconsistency with scheduled training showing complete, but expired in certificate detail have also been updated. 🍍
Last but not least, enhancements to the Blank Competencies have lots more information on the page and an updated look. ✨
Workhub Version 4.29.0
Hi Workhubiites, we are kicking off the long weekend with a new release. We have lots of large projects on the go, so this one is small and mighty (just like us!). Here’s a list of what we’re serving up today:
If your position is limited access by location or division, your admin dashboard will now read location(or division) compliance, rather than organization compliance. 🌐
We continue to add new time zones to our list of supported ones. If you have any requests, just let us know. ☁️
Policy comments can now be 500 characters. That’s way more than just a tweet. 🐤
Some CSV reports were previously limited to 1000 rows, but we’ve updated now so that the limit does not exist. 🏹
Tweaks to policy comments to keep ‘em smoother than a Ferrari. 🏎️
Say goodbye to pesky mosquitoes because we’ve squashed a lot of bugs in this one. 🐛

The Incident chart graph can now be downloaded. We love a good ol’ report. 📊
We’re keeping the reports coming too, because you can also download the Incidents root causes chart. 📌
Last for Incidents, but not least, under the people involved we’ve added a new involvement type of “Contributor”. 💂
Policies and Assets join our list of components with time support. 🕑Oh, and also BO....I mean Behavior Observations. 😅
Lots of improvements to the Competency – Worker Compliance report. It’s looking pretty competent now. 😇
When you have a link between a course and a certificate, it will now add a note on the certificate to show it was automatically uploaded...so you know exactly where it came from. 👀
Now, let’s talk about those bug fixes. 🐛🐝
An error would pop up when accessing a direct reports’ action items, but not anymore! 🐌
When reassigning a worker’s responsibilities, there was something funky about reassigning the supervisor. This fix is too hot. (Hot, damn! 🔥)
An issue with form submissions on worker side not fully displaying is also done and dusted! 🌈
Workhub Version 4.26.0
May 27th may be the birthday of the Golden Gate Bridge, but we’re going to try our best to steal the spotlight with the latest round of changes! 🌉
Time Zone support keeps expanding! Suggestions, Surveys, Materials and Credentials are the latest components where this has been added. 💫

Here’s a few easter eggs for you to kick off the long weekend🐇🥚:
We’ve added workers middle names to action items in different places of the software so you can be sure who the action items are assigned to. 👋
We’ve made some improvements to the pop ups for cross requirements so you can easily see which locations to set assignments for. 😵
Scratch Cards is moving up in the Workhub world! You might notice it now has its own tile on both the worker and admin dashboards. 🎉
Worker forms has gotten quite a makeover with an improved workflow that works more like the other components on the system.👣
LOTS of mobile enhancements. 🤳
Other Forms on the Admin side now has a new Changelog tab. This one is handy for creepin’ 👀
We fixed a bug where filtering inspections by date wasn’t returning results. 🕵️♀️ Apparently when you click search it it means items are supposed to be found.. 🤨
We’ve updated Courses and Policies lists to show how many workers they’ve been assigned to instead of positions. 🧮
Workhub Version 4.23.0
On March 25, 2017, some crazy people in Innisfail, Australia made the world’s largest banana split. It took almost 40,000 bananas and was 8km long. While that’s a pretty mighty feat, I think the latest release of Workhub will top that!
Competencies will now have an expiry setting, meaning that as an admin, you can choose to make workers complete a competency periodically. The default span is 3 years but you can adjust this under the settings. ✔️
Each position now has an “Admin Notes” field. 🤫
Online training now has a lessons & time remaining count for each course. This will hopefully make it more clear to workers that they number of things left to do is the number of lessons left for the courses they have been assigned. (is anyone else hearing the jeopardy theme song in their head or is it just me?)⌛
Inspections now has a “My Location” filter, meaning that when a worker is viewing an inspection type assigned by asset, they can filter for only assets at their location. 🚚
The worker dashboard has rearranged categories. Rewards now has its own dashboard tile under Rewards and Recognition. 🎁
When viewing details about a direct report, it now has an updated look with more data shown. 🕵️♀️

Improved functionality around providing feedback on quiz questions. ❓
Bet you read all of these hearing jeopardy in your head now. You’re welcome. 😎
Workhub Version 4.22.0
On a certificate, you can now share an estimated training time with workers. You’ll see a new field on the Certificate overview page called “estimated training length” where you can add it in. ⛳
We had a bug where the suggested expiry field on certificates went missing. We kindly suggested it reappear.✨
Seems like all the buttons are disappearing since on the workers side on mobile, the download button on an inspection wouldn’t appear either. After threatening to kick it’s little pixels, it’s back too. 👊💨
You can now download a report of assigned competencies to an individual worker too when looking at their profile from the admin side. Reports everywhereeeee. 📰
When selecting a supervisor for a worker, you can now see their middle names too....so you know exactly whether you are selecting John A Doe or John B Doe.
Printing a TDG certificate seem to result in two pages. I guess y’all don’t need two many tdg certificates so we’ve fixed it to only print on one page. ✌️
Some improvement action on action items. Now you can easily see where the action item originated from on Inspections, Safety Meetings, Hazards & Incidents, and Suggestions. 🌪️
You may observe some updates in Behavior Observations. Lots of tiny changes for more consistency & clarity. All the the buzz words! 🐝
February 11th is a historic day for many reasons. In 1983, Bonnie Tyler released “Total Eclipse of the Heart”; Buster Douglas upsets Mike Tyson in the 10th round of their bout in Tokyo, Japan; Michael Jordan is named the MVP of the 1996 NBA All-Star game; Workhub releases 4.21.0 in 2022.
What makes this release so monumental? Here’s some of the highlights:

Workers with Insert Action Item Permission can now create an action item directly from submitting an inspection. Click the icon next to the camera icon to add an action item. 📋
We’ve fixed some bugs with direct reports and viewing the items assigned to them. So you can correctly creep on them now. 😉
Speaking of reports, here’s a report about reports. Our report is that (matrix) reporting has reported significant improvements. Feel free to report back to us if you have anything to report on this one. 😬
In case you haven’t noticed yet, Safety Data Sheets has been renamed to Materials. 💷
Another pesky bug has been squashed, if you were a multi-user switching accounts previously you may have noticed your picture and compliance following you from one account to the other. This won’t happen anymore. 🐜
We’ve made it easier to search through your submitted forms with loooots of new filters. Click on filter icon to see all the options. You can even search by who submitted the form. 🕵️ Talk about options. 👀
As a worker, you can now view past submissions by clicking on the inspection itself. This makes it easier for you to see the history of a particular asset or location. 📜
It’s cuffing season. 📎 You can now click on related inspections in Assets, and it will take you to the submission history for that asset in inspections. 🔗
How are you all doing out there? Are you getting enough sleep? Drinking enough water? Eating some vegetables here and there? This release doesn’t have any big updates so we just wanted to use this space to remind you to be kind to yourself and those around you. That’s all. Be safe.
