We are pleased to inform you that we are upgrading the Worktribe Research Management System on the 13th May 2020 to version 2020.1. This upgrade delivers a number of enhancements and background improvements to the Worktribe system. We will be required to take the system out of service for a short time while this upgrade is conducted by Worktribe Ltd.

The Worktribe system will be unavailable from 6pm on the 13th May to implement the upgrade. The system should be considered at risk until 9am on the 14th May.

In addition to background improvements and minor amendments, users will notice the following enhancements to the system.

•    Worktribe Projects can now be duplicated.
•    Budget lines can now also be duplicated
•    Users can make annotations on certain fields.
•    Partner Budget line descriptions have been reinstated.
•    The Project and Contract headers have been redesigned.

The below document contains detailed guidance about these improvements. If you have any questions about the upgrade, please feel free to contact the Worktribe Support Team

Alternatively, we hold regular drop-ins via Microsoft Teams if you require further support (Worktribe Drop In Calendar).
