Minor enhancements for the people using Next®, November 2022

We are happy to flag every new and enhanced feature in Next® with its own release note. Still, some of the enhancements are relevant to only a select few, and those we collect in this list for documentation.

For this release we have collected the following minor enhancements targeted the admins and end user:

GDPR and confidentiality classification made more logical
To make it easier to work with the two classification for GDPR and confidentiality, we have enforced an explicit distinction between automatic and manual policies. An automatic policy will govern how Next® sets the classification automatically when a new document is added or a background task is used to update existing documents. Who can set either classification manually on documents, is determined by a manual policy. Clear and easy to understand. 
Next® comes with built-in policies for you to start using this right away.   

Approval process for project related invoices streamlined 

When you process a cost invoice according to the 4-eyes principle in Next® Invoices, both first and second approver has the option to bail out and ask Finance to take over. With project related invoices, only the first approver had this privilege. The second approver only had the option to send it back to the first approver. Now we secure consistency in the two processes, and also for project related invoices, the second approver has the option of referring the matter to Finance.   

For the techies

Not so much here for the technically interested.
