CSM Software Updates

CSM Software Updates

CSM software updates have been made by Craig Safety Technologies. Changes to our Compliance Safety Manager (CSM) software make it easier to navigate within the system, will correct system bugs, and will provide more detailed information to system users.

CSM software updates will be available on March 31, 2014.

Craig Safety Technology listens to its customers, and we will continue to do CSM software updates to provide exactly what you need to get the most out of CSM. We welcome your suggestions for additional changes, so don’t hesitate to call us when you identify issues or have ideas on how to improve the usability of the system.

Home Page Redirect

Users were returned to the CSM Home Page after making changes or additions to their account. Users will no longer be routed back to the Home Page after making changes. Users will remain in the same location and in the same section of CSM after a change is made.

  • Fewer clicks
  • Less frustration

Link to Craig Safety Website

The link to the Craig Safety website was only available from the Home Page. The link to our website is now on all CSM pages.

Default List Sorting

The default sort for all lists was the order in which the data was entered. All lists will now be sorted alphabetically. If a list of names, sort will be by last name. User can still change the sorting as needed, but the default is now alphabetical.
  • Improves usability
  • Easier to locate what you need
  • Includes Administrative lists

Error Message Standardization

Different error messages appeared on different screens when an action was cancelled. Consistent error message will appear on all screens when cancelling an action.

Required Fields

Fields that are required were not identified. Required fields will be identified by a red asterisk (*) beside the field name. Error messages below the field (in red) will indicate that the field is required when it is left blank.
  • Saves time
  • Ensures compliance entries are made
  • Identifies what fields should be completed

Employee Driver Report Change

Employee Driver Reports did not include Endorsements. Endorsements will be visible on the Employee Driver Report.

Escalation Alerts

All alerts were routed to a single individual. Alerts can be configured by the CSM Admin user to route to multiple users. Each alert can be configured separately so that the user can send the alerts to Managers, Owners, etc. as the Expiration Date of the renewable item is approaching.
  • Keeps management informed
  • Allows management to assist the CSM user in managing employees
