Updated Location and Progamme Choosers

Within NHS ePortfolios, there are many occasions where you need to select a location from our “location tree”, e.g. when searching for an individual, or when configuring programmes/posts.

On Saturday the 12th March 2016, Location and Programme choosers were updated to make them quicker and easier to use, particularly on touch screen based devices.

Historically, selecting a location was a two step process.  First, you had to select the top most location in one field, then a second field appeared immediately below which contained the “location tree” itself, from which the location could then be selected:

location-chooser-before

Both of these elements have now been combined into a single chooser that is applied consistently throughout the site:location-chooser-after

To use the new chooser, simply click or tap in the field, and the chooser will appear, then:

  • To expand the location tree, click upon the triangles to the left of the tree items.
  • To select a location, click the round radio button.
  • To de-select locations, click the “clear” button.

Permissions

There will be no changes to the locations to which you have permissions as a result of this change.

The new chooser will contain all locations to which you previously had permission – if previously you had two items in the first field, the new chooser will contain two top level items in a single tree via which you can access all the child locations to which you previously had permission.

Programme Chooser

The programme chooser has also been updated and now behaves in the same manner as the location chooser.

Updated Timeout Behaviour

Much like with other web based services such as online banking, if you do not interact with NHS ePortfolios for an extended period you are automatically logged out to preserve the security of your account.  The amount of time before this occurs is called the “timeout period”.  For NHS ePortfolios, the timeout period is 60 minutes.

Previously, when using a form within NHS ePortfolios, 5 minutes before the timeout period was reached, a small alert window would open, encouraging you to interact to extend the timeout period for a further 60 minutes.

This alert window would not be displayed if the timeout period was reached when viewing other areas of the service such as curricula, messaging, ticketing etc.  Furthermore, the alert window would not be displayed if you had enabled the “Prevent this page from creating additional dialogs” feature in browsers such as Google Chrome (full details on why you would not want to enable that feature can be read here: https://nhseportfolios.zendesk.com/hc/en-gb/articles/207560513).

As such, we have entirely re-engineered this functionality to make it more user friendly and this will be implemented as part of Release 21.0, on Saturday the 12th March 2016

As before, a warning message will be displayed 5 minutes before the timeout period is reached, but it will now be displayed irrespective of what area of the service the user was using before they left it unattended.  The new warning message is much more obvious to the user and clearly states it purpose:  Screen Shot 2016-03-11 at 09.02.05

The warning message contains a countdown timer and, if you do not interact with the warning message, you will be automatically logged out and directed to a page that confirms that this has occurred:

timeout-message2
