Version 5.3.1 Software Release Announcement

We are very pleased to announce the release of our Version 5.3.1 TapRooT® Software in both Web Enterprise and Single User versions.

The majority of the enhancements in the Version 5.3.1 TapRooT® Software were designed to add functionality to the user and make the navigation of the software more intuitive. A detailed list of these enhancements is found below.

o In Single User, you can now create and edit Locations, Classifications, Custom Details Fields and Attachment Folders from the Investigation Editor. You no longer need to go to the Admin menu to accomplish these task.
o When Saving a SnapCharT® as a different season (Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter) you no longer have to rename the SnapCharT®. The selection of a new season creates a unique name automatically.
o The upcoming new Root Cause of ‘Language’ has been introduced on the Root Cause Tree®
o Under Techniques>Manage Documents, new installations will have a SnapCharT® template to use which helps remind new TapRooT® users of the 15 questions.
