In Helm CONNECT Version 1.22, we’re adding several new features and improvements to the Work Rest module to make it more powerful and easier to use. If you haven’t already read the first three posts in this series, you can check them out here:

In this post, we’re excited to share another feature coming to Helm CONNECT Work Rest that will allow you to add some customization to the module!
During our validation calls with customers, one of the most frequent items we heard was the desire to be able to customize the number of buttons that can be used for tracking as well as their descriptions, since not all companies refer to the same things by the same names. Knowing how important this was to our customers, we listened and are giving users the ability to customize up to four work-rest buttons! Coming in our 1.22 release (slated for July 2021), users will now be able to customize the descriptions, tooltips, shortcut letters, font format (bold/italic/underline), and color of cells displayed in the Work Rest grid.
When any customization changes are made, they will only affect new data that is added to the system and will have no effect on any historic data.
Well, that’s all for now. Stay tuned for the final blog post in this series coming soon! In the meantime, if you have any questions or want to see more of the features in action, you can get in touch with our team—they’d love to help!
