Feature enhancements

The following features were introduced or modified to improve the user experience and increase workshop efficiency:

Component search improvements

To assist users in locating the correct component on our interactive diagrams we have added a drop-down option to display the full list of available components. There is also now a ‘clear search’ function that allows users to clear the search bar with a single click.

Change engine option

Users can now easily switch between specific engines for a chosen manufacturer or model using the new ‘change engine’ option in the job folder. Once a new engine is selected the user will be returned to the page they were on.

Coloured wiring diagrams

The majority of models now feature interactive coloured wiring diagrams.

Print option on component pages

Users now have the option to print on the component pages in the same way they can on other parts of the web application.

Additional component images

We have added another 50 generic component images that will appear on interactive diagrams and component pages.

Image upgrade

Service and component location illustrations have been upgraded to higher resolution images, providing users with greater detail and clarity.
