System Release 8/15/17: New In-App Process for Using JobSight Research Services

Posted by Sarah Toulmin

8/15/17 3:03 PM

zlien's JobSight Research service has always provided incredible value for our subscribers. Now new improvements to the way we communicate research findings to your team will make the service even more integral to your process.

If you've asked us to contact you about data we find when we research your orders, this release is relevant to you!

The biggest change for subscribers will be learning the difference between our new notification styles: "Suggestions" vs.  "Alerts"

  • "Suggestions" are tied to your projects and do not expire. "Alerts" are tied to your orders and DO expire. 
  • "Suggestions" are a type of research notification. We send Suggestions when we find new or different information on your project that is relevant to your order AND your project as a whole.
  • "Alerts" bundle together all the research notifications on an order (including Suggestions) and pause your order so that you can review what we found and approve changes to your document.
  • If an Alert expires, the Suggestion(s) will remain available to be resolved after an order is completed.
