    We make a tremendous effort of incorporating your ideas and suggestions into IndustrySafe. To address your needs and concerns, we constantly make updates to the software.

    GPS UpdatesInspections by Location IndustrySafe dashboard chart

    With the 5.16 release, IndustrySafe's GPS field has been updated so that it is now consistent across the Incident, Inspection, and JSA modules.

    Within Initial Incident, Inspection, or JSA recording forms which have the GPS field enabled, users can click the GPS button to open up a modal window displaying a map with their current location. Users are also able to use the map to adjust and select a new desired location.

    Once you confirm your current location, your current GPS coordinates will then auto-populate beneath the GPS button when the modal closes.

    As part of this update, a new pre-built chart, "Inspections by Location" has also been added to IndustrySafe's list of available dashboards. For help with adding charts and graphs to your dashboard, please review our Getting Started Guide.


    New Edit Modules and Edit Services Pages

    The Edit Modules section of System Functions has been redesigned with the 5.16 release.

    Admin users who have access to System Functions will see new options available in the Setup dropdown, "Edit Modules" and "Edit Services", that reveal what modules and services are purchased and turned on in your IndustrySafe site.

    The updated Edit Modules page also allows admin users the ability to easily rename IndustrySafe’s modules as they appear in the navigational menu.
