February 2016 FMX Update

March 04, 2016  •  Jamie Gregory

Our team is leaping with joy because we had an extra day in February to work on improving FMX. Get it, leap year? Anyway, we're happy to introduce several new updates we've added to enhance FMX this month!


Work request enhancements

Have you ever resolved a work request only to realize that you forgot to include critical information in your resolution details? Good news, we've made it possible to edit the resolution details for completed work requests.

Additionally, you can now create custom fields to capture specific information when someone responds to a work request.

Check out this video for a visual step-by-step overview of these enhancements.

Planned maintenance enhancements

Do you have a maintenance task that will only occur once but has a checklist of steps that need to be completed to execute the task? Why not create a non-repeating planned maintenance task?

Individual worker hours can now be logged when responding to or executing a planned maintenance task. Woo hoo!

We've also added some flexibility to help you determine which users should receive planned maintenance email notifications for confirmed, upcoming, and overdue PM tasks.

Check out this video for a visual step-by-step overview of these enhancements.

Custom field enhancements

We've added a new option for ordering your custom fields on a page by name but in a non-alphabetical order.

Report subscription enhancements

Users who are subscribed to receive recurring reports via email can now select the time of day they want to receive the report email instead of the default time which is midnight. Here's how it works:

Step 1: Click on the "Settings" button under the user's name in the left sidebar.

Settings Button

Step 2: Scroll down to the "Preferred notification time" drop down list and select the desired time of day for the user to receive recurring report emails.

Coming soon: Major reporting and analytics enhancements

We're currently working on a major enhancement to the reporting and analytics capabilities of FMX. These enhancements will allow you to create customized interactive dashboards consisting of data across your FMX site. Stay tuned!


We would love to hear any feedback you have on this set of FMX enhancements! Share your thoughts in the comments below.
