  13. Improved the display of topic “breadcrumbs” (showing the hierarchy of the selected topic) when hovering over with the cursor on mapping screens

  14. Fix document-specific attestations (requested for a compliance document item) not showing in “classic” inbox screens

  15. Added pagination to the Users screen

  16. Added pagination to all item history screens

  17. Added a “Today” button to the ad-hoc attestation popup allowing users to easily select the current date


  1. We now prevent the user from creating a new workflow data set until the previous one is completed

  1. Renamed “View & Edit Restricted Person” to “View & Edit Restricted Person Fields” permission

  2. Blocked users are hidden from the list of users having a particular role

Third-Party Oversight

  1. We’ll automatically hide items when they’ve been unshared with you (and you have accepted this) as a recipient

  2. Items will still be visible if they have been linked to any of your own data, and will permanently be visible in attestation history views if you have attested to them

  3. Fixed an issue which could cause a process to appear to be duplicated instead of changed when changing its process type

  4. Axiom now logs some information at the recipient side when accepting new shares, or accepting unshare actions


  1. Added “Forum” and “Group” function types

  2. Added “Local” responsibility types to the responsibilities table

  4. Fixed an issue where line breaks would not be preserved on saving an oversight document (SOR/RM)

  6. Fixed an issue which could cause responsibilities not to be displayed for the correct legal entity in a Responsibilities Map

  7. Fixed an issue with the display of headers in output PDF documents

  8. Fixed an issue which could incorrectly allow a local topic to be dropped onto shared items

  9. Improved the way the “Main Contact” field works to allow free text or person selection

  10. SORs no longer consider showing or hiding people on function diagrams as a change to those people

  11. Fixed display of responsibilities in the right-hand library on Oversight mapping screens

  12. Fixed an issue where the “copy direct link” button could be shown twice on function items

  13. Fixed an issue with linking people to Axiom users on the person details card

  16. “Line Manager” for default certification workflows will now be automatically set where possible based on Reporting Line setup

  19. Added the relevant legal entity for any job role shown in the Person table on a Responsibility Map

  20. Added a filter to the responsibility reference field

  21. Removing a person completely from a role is now impossible if that mapping has been the subject of a previous attestation

  22. You should set an “end date” for the assignment instead in this instance

  23. Added some styling to tables added to SORs which makes them naturally adopt the same look and feel as other tables shown on the document
