Smart Assessor Release Notes 16/09/2020


Thank you for continuing to use our Smart Assessor system. We have made the following changes to our system, to help improve your usage and make using Smart Assessor easier for you.

Recently Completed:

IQA Calendar removal 

We have been continuously monitoring usage of our system to provide you the best experience possible. After our recent refresh of the IQA feature set and reviewing usage statistics, we have found that the IQA Calendar has been made redundant. We have made the decision to retire the IQA Calendar, so we can refocus and concentrate on improving usability for high traffic areas within Smart Assessor, rather than maintaining little used areas of the site.

Android App release (Version 4.1.0b)

Please ensure any work is synchronised then uninstall the Smart Assessor App and Install the new version from the play store. 

Our App Developer has worked hard to complete a refresh of the android app, which includes;

Enhanced User Experience from UI improvements made to each screen, using latest guidelines.
