What’s coming with Paragon 5.68

On Wednesday, December 5, an update to Paragon will be available that will introduce several new improvements and features to the system.

Maintenance to upgrade Paragon to version 5.68 will begin on Tuesday, December 4 at 10:00 PM and will last approximately eight hours. During this time, Paragon will be unavailable.

Here is a breakdown on what you can expect with the update via Black Knight, Paragon’s provider:

Enhancements to the Contact Activity widget

Several improvements have been made to the Contact Activity widget, providing increased information and functionality for members using the Paragon Contact Manager and Collaboration Center that relate to New Activity tracking.

Driving Directions are Now Generated in Google Maps

Paragon driving directions have been revamped so that users can enjoy all the features that Google Maps has to offer.

Larger Map in Print+ Driving Directions 

When accessing driving directions via Print+, you will see that the map has been enlarged. On top of that, the destination letters that represent listings on the map have also been added to the step-by-step directions next to the associated listing address. This will help you identify which letter represents which listing on the map.

Paragon’s New Midwest Theme

Ye-haw! A new “Midwest” theme has been added to the Paragon database, which you can get a glimpse of below.

Center Map on Address – Update

The colours on the drop-down menu have been reversed so that the background is white and the address is gray. This more consistently resembles the coloring of the Map Layers panel and is easier to view.

Updated Contact Activity Widget

The new, four-tab layout is designed to provide direct access to client activity from Collaboration Center on your Paragon Home Screen.

You can use the Days Back selector to view activity up to 30 days back.  Use the Edit Widget tool or the new setting in Preferences > System > Contact Manager to set the Default Days Back from 0 to 7 days. Up to 50 records will display on each tab.  All activity can at any time be viewed from Contacts > View/Manage Contacts.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns related to Paragon or other Board tools, contact the FVREB Helpdesk at 604-930-7626 or helpdesk@fvreb.bc.ca.
