Release Notes for May 10, 2019 (3.0.2019.510)
- Part Details – Corrected an issue affecting the visibility of the Standard Production Rate, Rate Type, and Standard Setup fields

The Thrive reporting system received a major upgrade on this release.
A new reporting tool was previously released in a Beta version that was accessible by some users in parallel to the retro reporting tools. The retro reporting tools are being retired with this release and existing reports will be migrated to Thrive V3 Reporting system. All previous links will be redirected to the equivalent V3 report. The new reporting system will offer a significant change in the may that report groups (folders) and security are handled. The starting point with this release will migrate existing reports into folders that match the current report Category (the category historically aligned with the Thrive Module). Report security will also migrate to the new folder structure. After the migration, users with proper security may create new folders for organizing and sharing reports.
The dashboard tool is following a similar migration plan. The new dashboard system will be pre-populated with reports based on the content of the old dashboards created by each user. Due to the increased flexibility of organizing and sizing the items on the new dashboard, users may find it necessary to adjust their new dashboard layouts during their first visit.
Please check Thrive online documentation or contact Lean Tech (firstname.lastname@example.org) if further information is needed.
