In February, we introduced the Productiv App Procurement Hub to provide organizations with a frictionless software procurement process that automates workflows, aligns stakeholders, and surfaces the data and insights needed to drive stronger negotiations.
But that’s not all! Over the past month, we’ve introduced audit logs to automatically track change history, added new Attributes Import APIs to update and delete attributes for an app in Productiv, enabled additional App Portfolio filters to provide visibility into inactive apps when needed, and more.
Track changes to fields in Productiv with audit logs
Users want to know who has made changes to a custom field, label, or note and what the changes were.
Productiv now automatically tracks the change history for these fields. Users will see a visual icon indicating the field has an audit log. They can drill into the audit log to see when the change was made, who made it, and what the previous value was, if it was an update.
Keep app attributes in sync with other systems using Attributes Import APIs
Users want to keep attributes of apps — including app tags, custom fields, and app owners— up to date in Productiv when the primary source for these fields is located and updated in another solution, such as a homegrown solution or an enterprise asset management solution.
The new Attributes Import APIs enable customers to programmatically update and delete attributes for an app in Productiv. The APIs can be used to update the contents of the app status, app rationale, labels, and notes attributes, the values of custom fields, and the users for app contacts. In addition, the APIs support deleting the value currently assigned, rather than updating it.
Along with the existing Apps Data Export APIs, users now have the ability to read and write app attributes, enabling them to keep this information in sync with other platforms and systems.
Find what you need quicker with App Portfolio toggles for app visibility
Inactive apps are hidden by default on the App Portfolio page. Inactive apps are generally no longer used, or Productiv does not have sufficient current data to indicate active usage of the app. While inactive apps could be found by searching for the app, they couldn’t be displayed in the list on the App Portfolio page.
The App Portfolio page now includes a setting where the customer can specify whether to show active apps, apps with delayed data, and inactive apps through toggles for each option. When the customer creates or saves a custom App Portfolio view, their selections for the toggles are saved with the view for easy recall and sharing.
Easily locate custom views on the App Portfolio page
Users want quick access to the custom views they created.
Now custom views appear before Productiv-provided preset views in the views library.
We look forward to continued collaboration with our customers to further increase the value of their SaaS investments and drive next-level outcomes.
