We received many responses to our survey earlier this year in response to our request that you tell us about your experience of using the online PCS system. There were a number of recurring themes and these have been addressed by the ICT department and a modified version of the software went live a few days ago.
Several key changes have been introduced that make the application easier to use particularly on a mobile device. These include:
Add multiple records
We have now amended the "Add Record" function so that the Add Record button remains on the screen when you have submitted a record. You can now add one record after another without going back to the Summary Page
New date picker
Dates for events in your portfolio are now added using a standard date picker
New password re-set facility
We have made it much easier to reset your password if you have forgotten it using a simple email based process. Guidelines on how to re-set your password are available on the website – click here
You can now update / edit your work experience under the tab Profile after you login to PCS.
We have revised and updated a Q&A document to more clearly explain other features of the system that some users found difficult to use click here. Despite the changes the overall look and feel is very similar and we don't expect anyone will find the new features interfere with how they use the site.
