Disable Reminder Notifications

Breathe a sigh of can now turn off reminder notifications. A couple of things to note:

  • Each user is able to do this for themselves, regardless of permissions

  • You will still be sent the initial notification, but there are no additional notifications afterward

Sign in Approval Mode Updates

We clarified the Sign up Approval Mode settings. To summarize:

  • This only applies to customers that are managing user permissions through Whistic (vs through an SSO provider)

  • Auto-provisioning is only allowed if you enforce sign on through SSO. You will know that SSO is not enforced if this option is not available.

Vendor Risk Management


New Dashboard Section

The new dashboard section - SCHEDULED VENDOR ASSESSMENTS - provides greater visibility into upcoming assessments. At a glance, you will know what vendors will be sent an assessment, typically scheduled through Program Automation.

This will include any assessment scheduled within the next 30 days. As with most Dashboard action sections, there is a link included to view the vendor details.

Flexible Clarification Questions

Have your vendors ever needed to change an answer during a Clarification Request?

We've adjusted the automatic filters to include unanswered questions. If a vendor changes an existing answer and exposes additional questions based on the logic of the questionnaire, those questions will automatically appear alongside the other clarification questions.
