Get ready: the Cartegraph Fall 2018 release is here and about to boost the efficiency and effectiveness of your day. Addressing 23 user ideas, these updates and enhancements are all about simplifying system maintenance, tracking your key performance indicators (KPIs), fine-tuning Scenario Builder projections, and improving your overall Cartegraph experience.
# Set System Access
Racking up 160 Ideas Portal votes, this is going to be your admin’s favorite new enhancement. Need everyone out of Cartegraph for system maintenance? Quickly see who’s signed in, send those users a customized notification message, and lock the system for maintenance. All users will be automatically signed out in less than a minute.
- New Set System Access command exists on every screen requiring a Publish.
- Ability to send a message through the system to all signed in users (browser and mobile) notifying them when the system will be locked.
- An administrator can see which users are signed into the system and quickly send emails to provide another warning just before locking.
- Once the system is set as Locked for Maintenance, all users are automatically signed out within 60 seconds.
- To prevent data issues, the system must be locked before editing in Structure Manager, GIS Associations, or Asset Administration. These three areas can be viewed without locking.
- The User Administration screen now has a Signed In column which shows who is signed into the system and how—browser, Cartegraph for iPad, or Cartegraph One.

# Analytics Dashboard
Just when you thought the Analytics Dashboard couldn’t get any better, we go and add three new gadgets. Keep tabs on key digits, track progress toward a goal, and see who’s creating records with our latest number, KPI, and new records gadgets. We’ve also added the ability to resize gadgets and group by a field in lists—helping you further customize your experience.
