New features for Supervisors and Programme Directors

In conjunction with improvements to our search functionality for Foundation Administrators (see below) we have also improved the ePortfolio so it is easier for a Foundation Supervisor,  Foundation Programme Director, Dental Trainer or Dental Advisor to review multiple trainee accounts.

1. Select trainee

When a trainee account is viewed via ‘My trainees’ (if you are attached via a post/block) or ‘Programme Trainees’ (if you are attached via a programme/scheme), you can now select a trainee’s page and view it before clicking the new ‘Switch selected user’ button found on the left of the screen.

2. A trainee is selected

This will open a box that will list all the trainee you are attached to via post or programme.   Which trainees you see will depend on the role you are using and how you selected that first trainee.
3. Popup to select a different trainee

If you select a different trainee you can click directly on the name to switch them, or (where you have a long list) you can start to type their name into the text box to get to them more quickly.  You will be taken to the same ePortfolio page, but for that next trainee.
4. A new trainee is selected

If you ever need to refresh the trainees listed just return to your home page and start with a new trainee selection.
