Neighborhood Dashboard is now filterable.  #

    3. Neighborhood Dashboard is filterable by total area

Neighborhood Employee Management   #

We’ve added a lot of new functionality to allow for easier management of Neighborhood Employees. We’ve added a group add employees feature, that allows for filtering all employees in WebCoRE by a range of different attributes, such as Business Unit and Location, so that groups of similar employees can be quickly added to a Neighborhood. We’ve also made our import from file tool even more robust, so it can handle larger imports. 

    1. Search and add employees to neighborhood by Business Hierarchy value 
    2. Search and add employees to neighborhood by Space Standards 
    3. Search and add employees to neighborhood by Client-Specific filters 
    4. Group add employees to neighborhood by ’Working Environment” of their assigned location
    5. Neighborhood Import Employee’s from file now handles employee lists up to 30,000 employees
    6. Remove all employees from Neighborhood employee link list
