Sprint 90 Release Notes
The January Release went live on January 17th.
This development sprint focused on enhancements to Forgot Password functionality, Action Center, Federated Access and Search/Export.
Forgot Password Functionality
There are times when we all forget our passwords especially with new security requirements that demand password changes after a period of time. Aristotle 360 now provides a Forgot Password link that will send you an email to reset your password.
Please Note: Some Users may have access to multiple Aristotle 360 Accounts. The password will only be changed to those accounts linked to the specific email and Username combination. Password(s) linked to a different email/Username combination will be unaffected.
Thank and Spank for State Alerts
Aristotle Advocacy now supports automatic Thank You letter generation for State Action Alerts. Legislators who are sponsors/cosponsors of a bill will receive a Thank You message (Thank) as opposed to a Advocacy Message (Spank).
An advocate will know they are sending a Thank You letter when viewing the Recipient List as it will highlight in Green Recipient Legislator’s Name and note “Thank You” as well as the content differing from the “Take Action” Message content.
Action Center – Custom Alert List Views
Aristotle Advocacy now supports different views to organize your Action Alerts on the Main Action Center page. Your action alerts can be displayed, within Action Center, as a list (combing Federal, State and Other Alerts in a single list) or organize alerts by Jurisdiction within tabs to display alerts (Federal, State and Other).
This control will manage how your alerts are presented and which Jurisdiction tab is open by default. All (Single List View) is set by Default. Regardless of display option, you may order the alerts as needed within each view.
Within Action Center Settings you will find an option called Action Center List Jurisdiction to be displayed by default. Regulation Alerts are resident in their own unique tab.
After Selection Make Sure to Select Save Changes at Top of the Page
This will control your default display option:
Example of Default View – All (Single List View)
Example of Federal Jurisdiction View – Federal
Order Published Alerts
Regardless of how your Action Center is presented (List or by Jurisdiction) you can manage the alert display order to promote your critical alerts at the top of the list. The order alerts option has changed to support ordering of legislative alerts based on the setting List/Jurisdiction within Action Center Settings.
Order Published Alert When Jurisdiction is set to Federal
1. Admin has set Action Center to display Federal Alerts open by default in Settings->Action Center Settings.
2. Advocacy ->Order Published Legislative Alerts
3. Notice published Action Alerts are displayed within the Jurisdiction Tabs assigned at the time of the Alert's Creation.
4. Simply click and hold mouse button to Drag and Drop to change the display order of your alerts.
Example of Action Center List View
My Legislators Page – Support Printing of Page
After releasing the new “My Legislators” Page we have received requests to permit printing of the Legislator’s Page from our clients. Now advocates may print a copy of the Legislator Profile page.
Search & Export
Search for Legislators by Vote
Aristotle 360 now supports searching for legislators based on votes within Query Builder. You can search for legislators based on one or multiple votes. Please note that these queries are intensive and may run for a minute or more.
Exportable Fields – District Office
View/Manage Federate Access from Individual’s Record
Aristotle 360 provides Federated Access capabilities that provide national organization the ability to control user access based on Federated Access Group membership (National, State, Local etc.). We have added the ability for users to view in the main individual record body the individual’s Federated Access Group. If user has permissions they would be able to add or remove individual from Federated Access Groups.
Federated Access Groups will be shown in hierarchical order, with National first, followed by each state. All local groups for a state will appear after the state and prior to the next step. Label shows name and description for the federated access group.
