New fields available in the Create Layout form
‘Description’ and ‘Job reference/internal notes’ fields
Contractors can now add a job reference or any internal notes in a new field available under the Layout Description section of the Create Layout form. This means that the description field can now be used for the purpose of providing a concise summary to the public about the layout, while still providing the ability to record job references or other important internal information against the layout.
‘24 hour site contact’ field available
Contractors can also add 24-hour contact information in the new field that is available under the Layout Description section of the Create Layout form.

Updates to Generic TMP Layouts
For Global Permits with Generic TMPs that have multiple (100s) layouts, we are introducing a new checkbox called ‘Show active only’ which will default to loading only active layouts on access, reducing load times and speeding up the search process. Older TMPs will still be accessible by deselecting the active flag.
