A round-up of news from September

IDEA is listening

Building solid and valuable software is only possible when it’s based on the feedback from the people who use it. Therefore, IDEA YACHT does not only get small fixes and security updates, but also gets improved and extended with new features based on user feedback.

We’re happy to announce that with the next update you can expect:

– Multiple responsible values for a task, you can now tag a task for engineering and deck for example.
– Work together on a log day, engineering chat for log day comments.
– Hour counter lists for quick updates.
– A completely redesigned dashboard (check the details below).
– And more …

Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) update

Tracking IHM relevant information doesn’t have to be complicated. With that in mind the IDEA team implemented two new functions to make IHM management even easier:

– You can now directly ‘tag’ components and spare parts as being IHM relevant.
– Receive an IHM report, relevant components or spares including related linked documentation like SDoC’s and MD’s.

The all-new IDEA YACHT Dashboard will be:

– Fully customisable via drag-and-drop.
– Allows multiple dashboards per user.
– Offers the possibility to share dashboards in your role.
– Gives you the option to create your own menu with the ‘Favourites’ widget.
– Enables fast logging of Hours of Rest via the related widget.
