    • Allow list of actions to be ordered by the columns (period, authority, level)

    • Keep position in list/options when going to and from the screen.

    • Set default order to have most recent at top"

  • Make the user and authority management screens easier to use

  • Make system request user to log-on and then show you the menus you can use

  • Remove the 'unused' periods from the roll-up screen

  • Create a screen where the calculated c-vars for an authority can be seen and a comment field that would appear on reports

  • Enable reject from level 50 after 'x' months

  • Add back the asterix to the questions drop down to show complete

  • Ongoing task - to set up a screen at rollup that shows c-var values prior to actual approval


New report

New Report

  • Give option for more than one disposal destinations for waste type.

  • Change qu19/35 to allow a destination to be selected under a material rather than having all materials showing

  • Add total/subtotals to qu19/35 by material

  • "Add more materials to the existing list of 32 materials, eg tyres, foodwaste.(note this will not affect LATS biodegradability)"

  • Make it compulsory to enter a destination to any reject tonnage entered in qu19/35

  • When data is loaded from previous period the previous period notes are appended to any already in the current period
