Events: New user interface and new features

With Qualio Events, you have the ability to manage your quality event process, from complaints and CAPA’s to deviations and change control. Within Qualio we have updated our Events User Interface (UI) to enhance your experience. The following pages now have the new UI:

If you are an existing user of Events, note the Events menu will now be a single click to allow you to open the events list view, removing the existing submenu.

Validation for Events

Qualio has completed the general validation, and the pack is linked here for your review. You are welcome to generate test scripts from this documentation if you prefer, but we have tested these features on your behalf.

User management: New Admin Permission and Admin Settings Page

Qualio’s new admin functionality enables organizations to designate admin permissions to any role whether they are a Quality, Normal or Basic user. This is particularly helpful if you want to grant admin access to individuals who work outside your quality department as it allows you to maintain the confidentiality of sensitive information while ensuring people in e.g. IT, have the access they need.

As we roll this out to you, note that all Quality users will maintain their admin rights, but can later be removed as it will now be decoupled for the Quality role. All admins can then manage the admin permissions of other users.

All changes made will be captured and reflected in the company’s Audit Trail.

With the new admin functionality all user and group information can now be accessed and edited under a new user / group menu item in the Admin Settings page. Admins will be able to change permissions and settings for all users within their company from here.

See our help center article to learn more.

Released to Production

The following changes will soon be available in your sandbox and will begin to be released to production in a phased manner on November 23, 2022:

Design Controls: Attachments

With attachments, Qualio enables medical device teams to easily attach drawing, design, and test result files to each design element or test, creating a single source of truth for your product and quality teams.

Add attachments up to 100MB to requirements, test cases, and results:

  • Requirements and Test Cases: Up to 10 attachments per requirement or test case, 500MB max

  • Test Results: Up to 5 attachments per test results, 200MB max

  • Attachments are zipped and exported within reach review created

Take a look at our Help Center article here.

Document Templates: New user interface

Document Templates have been moved under the Document on the main Navigation. This area is only accessible to Quality Users. The user interface has been refreshed for both the list of templates and the templates themselves.

Additionally, we have included two valuable updates:

  • The periodic review period has now been extended from 36 months to 86 months. This will be also applicable to Document Properties

  • Template prefixes can now contain numeric values
