    New feature

    New and improved features

    Cochrane Account

    • The Cochrane Account area now has a Communications page for managing email addresses and newsletter subscriptions; and an Interests page for recording the user’s interests.
    • The Cochrane Account Area now works well on small screens (phones).
    • Text on the welcome page has been updated and the Logout link has been moved to make it more visible.
    • The support address for Cochrane Account is now cochraneaccount@cochrane.org.

    Membership

    • Changes to Archie and Cochrane Account were made to align with data protection legislation. The old bulk email preferences (none; primary group only ; afiliated groups only, all) have been removed from Archie and are replaced by the option to opt-in to communications from Cochrane on My Account. The opt-in is also part of the account activation process. Only users who had the 'All' bulk email setting have been set to opt-in.
    • Added an integration to notify the membership system when a person is marked as inactive in Archie.

    Changes related to Cochrane Library developments

    • Translations of topics: In preparation for the new Cochrane Library Spanish portal and any future portals in other languages, functionality is implemented in Archie to bulk import translations of CEU topics, which is used for the Cochrane Library browse list. Additionally, these translations can be edited in the user interface (on the Translations tab) and delivered to the publisher.
    • Due to the above change, topics for review groups also have a Translations tab, but the content of this tab is not currently used.

    Other

    • Added declaration of interest forms for Cochrane Council group members and Scientific Committee members.

    New and improved features

    Cochrane Account & Membership

    • Introduced a "My Account" area where Cochrane Account holders can manage their account information. Self-registered account holders will no longer require access to Archie to manage their account. Accordingly, access to Archie is now restricted to users with roles with Cochrane Groups. Note, it is still up to Cochrane Groups to directly assign roles.
    • Implemented a migration tool that will be used to convert Crowd and TaskExchange accounts into Cochrane Accounts - either as a new account, or by linking to an existing Cochrane Account.
    • Updated password reset process to be in line with other Cochrane Account processes
    • Clarified the intent of several fields in the signup process: "First name" is now "Given names", "Last name" is now "Family name", and "Country" is now "Country of residence".
    • Several fixes to ensure that when the login or signup process is initiated from one system, the user returns to that system once the process is complete.
    • Implemented the necessary infrastructure to track contributions made by Cochrane's supporters to support the future contribution-based Membership scheme.

    Other
