Enhancements/Features

Self Service Approval List - Loading Optimisations

Background

Several clients advised of slow loading of their self service approval tab list. This was often for clients that had a large number of pending changes that collected over time.

We also received high server usage alerts when users load this list.

Updates

In this piece of work, we made initial enhancements that improved the load times significantly. By optimising some of the loading mechanisms behind the listing page.

We will monitor the self service approval list usage over the coming weeks to determine if further optimisations are needed.

The new upload button will available for all users if they have the permission to upload documents to that tab.
