  • When selecting 'All OGSM's' in the filters of the report or the action plan you now only get the OGSMs that are set on 'Draft' or 'Active'.

  • The progress report now also shows the change date and the person who changed the report.
  • The menu now works even better on mobile.

February 2023

  • Dragging an action or indicator to another strategy was quite precise. You can now just drag them to the correct column.
  • The rights of draft OGSMs have been relaxed. Is the OGSM set to 'Draft'? Then the participants can change all items. Is the OGSM set to 'Active'? Then as a participant you can only change the items that you own.
  • In the OGSM and the Action Plan, the titles above the columns remain visible when you scroll down.
  • The owner's picture is back. This makes it clear more quickly who owns a strategy or action. You can set a picture in the profile.

November 2022

At the end of November we launched a completely new version of the OGSM tool. What has changed?

  • The appearance. The OGSM tool has a completely new design. Our starting point was to make the tool attractive and user-friendly.
  • Now also on mobile. We have developed all screens based on use on mobile devices. Of course, creating an OGSM won't be done very quickly on mobile, but you can now read or add a progress report and make a change.
  • Help is immediately available. You now always have the right information at your disposal with a click on the help button. Click the button with the question mark. And if you can't find a solution, you can send your question directly to the helpdesk.
  • Lots of details that make the use just that little bit better or more convenient. Get started and you will discover them yourself.
