Featuring the following headings:

Charts changed from linear to bar charts

Dashboard chart

The dashboard chart now uses a logarithmic scale to visualize the number of found references better.

For administrators only:

Search profile execution chart

The chart is cleaned of other information as the "family count" now is displayed in the price list chart. The execution chart (see below) therefore only displays the total amount of resolved references added to IPsurvey by this search profile. Each bar displays the accumulated number of resolved references on a specific day within the last 12 months. To see the exact number of resolved references added on a specific day e.g. 31 of January once has to subtract the resolved references on the 30 of January.

Price list chart

The chart displayes both the total amount of families (used for invoicing) and the trend-line. It displays a period of 12 months following the invoice period. 

Espacenet link replaced with PVSonline link for Danish references

When a Danish reference can be found in our own public database (PVSonline) then IPsurvey will display a link to PVSonline instead of Espacenet. In PVSonline the complete file wrapper including all publication types (A,B) is available only 4 days after publication.

The link in detailed view points to and when clicked upon the related reference opens in a new browser window (see below). Here is an example of such link

Recycle bin

The user specific recycle bin allows users to delete references and if necessary to recover them again from the recycle bin. As the recycle bin is user specific, a reference is only deleted for this particular user.

References can both be deleted from list view and detailed view. The recycle bin is only visible in the left menu when it contains at least one deleted reference and the total number of deleted references is always displayed.

The deleted references are listed in the recycle bin, in list view and from the "Tools" menu it is possible to define with fields are displayed <show/hide columns>.

In list view all columns are word wrapped properly, including dates and reference number, compared to the older versions where only title and abstract columns were word wrapped.
