CAMMS is pleased to announce the January Feature Release for cammsengage

This includes several new features and enhancements to improve the user experience within the system. The Release is set for 24th of January 2020 and will include the following features.


1. Ability to display a Hierarchy Tree Navigation panel within Dashboards.

This new feature enables the display of a navigation panel in dashboards, displaying all dashboard components in a hierarchical manner. This will allow users to click and navigate directly to a specific area of the dashboard with ease.


1.1 Dashboard Admin Panel:

  • A check box named ‘Display Tree Navigation’ will be visible in the Edit Dashboard section (see below).

This enhancement allows the 'Project List' component to pull in all the custom text fields within the 'Project Detail Object', in addition to the default fields which are currently available.

2.1 Dashboard Admin Panel


  • All ten custom text fields within the Project Detail Object of cammsproject will be available in the Configuration Menu of the 'Project List' component.
  •  Administrators can enable these fields to display them on the front-end of the Dashboard (See Figure 4 below).

  • Administrators can arrange the order of the fields, which will then change the column order based on the arrangement on the Dashboard front-end.
  • All these new fields will be compatible with all the refresh options.
