Numerous existing customers have asked Basis Technologies over the years to be able to rename the standard control point terminology of Inbox, Test Queue and Outbox, to terminology that instead reflected their own process steps. For example:
- Development Test Queue might instead be called “Unit Testing”
- QA Outbox might instead be called “UAT Review”
- Production Inbox might instead be called “CAB Approval”
ActiveControl 9.00 introduced this capability via the new Control Point Labels configuration option within the Targets tile of the Web Platform. Via this new optional configuration, ActiveControl Administrators can define the terminology that will seen by Users in all areas of the product screens where Location information is seen. If a Label is configured, this will be seen, otherwise the standard SID – Description – Control Point location will be seen by default.
As part of ActiveControl 9.10, any configured Control Point Labels are also now seen within the Global View.
