5 Features To Stay On Top of Your Projects

Here’s a round-up of our top five favourite OmniStar features and a brief description of them we put together for you.

In case you have missed them in our release notes. We hope to empower all users to get the most out of the platform.

 

QUICKLY AND EASILY FIND WHAT YOU NEED, WHEN YOU NEED IT WITH OUR GLOBAL SEARCH FEATURE

This feature is our unsung hero, getting you out of those frustrating moments when you just need to find something, quickly but you can’t!

Simply, click on the Search bar and enter the application, project, contract, review, panel or meeting that you need, and our Global Search feature will navigate to the right record from anywhere in the system.

 

GAIN A BIRD’S EYE VIEW OF YOUR APPLICATIONS

Stress no more when you manage multiple applications. Status Map is a handy feature that allows you to follow the logical progression of applications with ease. Quickly view which stage of the process your applications are. Not only that, when you hover over each step you can see what actions have been performed and which steps need to be performed.

Navigation to relevant functions is available so you can easily go to the next task to progress the current record to the next stage, including review/assessments, meetings, contract generation, project closure, among others.

 

TRACK CHANGES MAKE REVIEWING APPLICATIONS FOOL-PROOF

When you’re working in a remote world you understand how important collaborative features are. This is why the Track Changes feature is a huge time (life) saver. Now you can easily see application version submissions differences, in the same format as Microsoft Word. Making reviewing feedback a breeze.

 

THERE ARE TIMES WHEN YOU NEED LONG-TERM VISION AND OTHERS WHERE YOU NEED SHORT-TERM VISION

We understand that there are times when you need to zoom out and think about the bigger picture or zoom in and focus on a single day or week. For those moments, you need tools that assist you in narrowing in on the important tasks. With OmniStar you can simplify your planning with our Activity Tile feature.

OmniStar makes it dead simple for you to track your, or your team’s schedule. The system will automatically determine what activities need to be displayed and provides warnings when things are getting close to being due and are overdue. It can be set up to show your to-do list (by default) or a range of users’ to-do list. It displays:
• Tasks;
• Reviews;
• Issues;
• Risks.

 

NEVER MISS WHAT MATTERS THE MOST FOR YOU!

Fear to lose sight of high-priority projects or important applications? Worry no more, OmniStar got your back!

With Follow feature, you will never miss those critical projects and applications. When you click follow on projects and applications, they will:
• Be placed in your favourites list;
• Appear in your Activity tile by default;
• Be viewable by your managers on your to-do list.
