New Feature

Feature

Description

Enhanced risk scoring for engagements and relationships

In R28, the newest scorable fields in Risk Assess, Inherent Risk and Residual Risk, are available for use in engagements and relationships. Because relationships are created from an awarded engagement, risk scores for an engagement can be transferred to a relationship record. The relationship score can then be carried to the supplier record.

Risk Assess users can rest assured knowing that Inherent and Residual Risk information is even more accurate now since risk is typically calculated risk at the relationship level and not just at a supplier level.

 

Currently, if the display name standard IR and IR fields are updated in the data dictionary, it will cause them to be editable. This issue will be resolved in an upcoming release.

Enhanced Birst user management

Tenant administrators may now manage users from the Birst system via the Group Management page in the following way:

  • Birst users may now be re-activated on the Birst system if the user was added back into the "Analytics User" and "Analytics Designer User" groups after being previously removed from the groups and inactivated on the Birst system.

The feature is not enabled by default. To enable this feature, please contact your Coupa representative.
