In older versions of ActiveControl, many customers complained about the number of buttons on some of the screens. In some instances, some of the buttons useres saw might rarely, or even never, be used.
As part of a deliberate strategy by Basis Technologies on the back of customer feedback over the years to make the new ActiveControl UI less ‘busy’, some of the less commonly used Actions within the Global View have been placed within an Other Actions menu.
In addition, each of the buttons within this menu are only seen by a user if they have the corresponding authorisation activity, to avoid users clicking on things they do not need to (or wondering why they cannot click on buttons that they deliberately have no authorisation to).
Different Actions will be available when selecting at Business Task(s) versus Transport Form(s).
