Axiom Update 3.18.0

We are pleased to announce that Axiom version 3.18.0 is now live!

This update contains the following changes:


  • Added the ability to include multiple statuses and dates for a person's functions (for example, their job role)

This allows you to accurately reflect a history of a person within a role, including periods where they were doing something other than carrying out their job as a main activity.

This can be used to better capture a history of periods such as training, transition, or long-term absence:

This can now be managed everywhere that you could adjust a person's job role before. You'll now see new options to maintain status like this:

  • Made various improvements to the user interface around person and function cards and grids to reflect job role histories as above

  • Removed the 'Delegated' description type from process->responsibility links as this is now entirely described by the 'Responsibility Delegation' feature

  • Added a section on the right-hand mapping library for 'Reporting Lines' to gather all people without an existing reporting line

  • Fixed an issue causing a termination date for a person to not be respected on function tables within RM documents

  • Fixed an issue with newly changed job roles being reflected on RM documents

  • Added the ability to filter people by their certification status within specific legal entities and improved the display of this column

  • Fixed an issue with "Delegated to" information on CSVs downloaded from the responsibility grid screen

  • Improved behaviour of dropdown lists in RM documents

  • Fixed an issue with filters for governance functions (boards, committees) on functions grid screen

  • Improved the display of people without a job role in the right-hand library window

  • Fixed an issue allowing selection of an archived person on RM documents

  • Fixed an issue with dates relating to SMF tags and responsibilities on Statements of Responsibilities

  • Fixed an issue with the calendar on the 'FCA Directory' screen's history view

  • Allow a SOR to be created even if the person does not have a valid job role on the given date

General fixes and improvements

  • Added keyboard shortcuts throughout Axiom!

These can be used to quickly navigate or activate common actions on Axiom.

For example, you can press shift+r (to navigate to Rules Mapping) then shift+3 (to navigate to Controls) to quickly access this screen

Review the full list below (or by finding the 'Keyboard Shortcuts' help menu in the bottom right of each screen

  • Added the ability to 'freeze' various columns on grids in Axiom

This allows you to fix the leftmost 1-4 columns in place when scrolling to the right and makes comparing large numbers of rows much easier

  • Tweaked the column order for the persons grid to better make use of the above feature and resized the ID column slightly

  • Added the 'Tags' management screen to the new user interface

You can find this under 'Admin' - it works exactly like the equivalent screen from the classic interface!

  • Added the ability to enter an item's ID (instead of its name) to locate it when searching in various dropdowns, for example when adding related items to an issue:

  • Stopped loading the classic user interface when user logs in and instead only do this on demand of classic screens

  • Fixed an issue that could cause an extra click to be needed to dismiss attestation notifications

  • Fixed an issue with the ordering sequence of items added to 'advanced' grid screen relationships

  • Fixes to improve layout of various card views in Firefox

  • Improved the display of the 'Roles' table to immediately refresh when adding a new role

  • Fixed an issue with reminder permissions when a user had only the "View Own Data" event scope

  • Fixed permissions issues when mapping various rules-mapping items

  • Fixed an issue caused when adding an ampersand ('&') to role names

  • Fixed an issue with emails not containing details of failed reminder items

  • Fixed an issue opening task events from MI results

  • Fixed an issue allowing allowed attesters and owners of task events to overlap

  • Fixed filtering events on the 'Rejected' column

  • Fixed an issue with closing an issue from the inbox screen

  • Fixed an issue caused by switching to 'Rules' view after searching for linked controls

  • Fixed an issue saving cards using 'Issue by Field Value' queries

  • Fixed an issue caused when completing reminders and returning to the inbox

  • Fixed an issue causing the 'Back' button to be hidden on MI cards

  • Fixed an issue filtering on user role types

  • Fixed an issue with searching event design screens

  • Fixed the display of 'previous issues' when completing attestations that have linked task items

  • Added a more helpful message when trying to upload a completely empty file as a record

  • Fixed an issue with task items appearing incorrectly on the event grid

  • Made sure that the 'copied to clipboard' message appears when used for the first time on a record

  • Fixed searching by ID number not behaving as expected for rules

  • Fixed the 'Issues' screen CSV download not respecting applied filters

  • Improved a tooltip description for mandatory multi-pick fields

  • Improved applying grid filters for 'multi-select' type options only when the user clicks 'Apply' or loses focus
