The Expert Digest is a daily or weekly notification email sent to owners of Assessments in case recipients added comments or asked questions to an ongoing Assessment - very handy for keeping track of larger Assessment campaigns with lots of Controls and recipients.

New features for the Report, Excel exports and more

Summary of Changes

Compliance Summary (compliance compared in 2 standards)

1. New features for the Report

The Report was extended by a whole new section, the Compliance Summary. This is a very powerful feature that gives you a condensed view about the compliance to regulatory and statutory requirements based on the Assessment outcomes included in the Report. The management summary was re-designed and enriched with features. Report sections are now collapsable.
