Introducing Version 5.6 (2023-02-15)

  • Delete user and VP-SCE columns: A new Edit | Delete User Column command allows you to delete columns added by the user or by VP-SCE. These columns will be permanently removed, saving disk space, memory, and de-cluttering the Choose Column List. You can select and delete multiple user or VP-SCE columns. Only user or VP-SCE columns can be deleted; if you select a range of columns that contain publisher columns, only the user or VP-SCE columns will be deleted. You cannot undo column deletion, so we recommend using Save As... to save the original or new chart file with a different name.
  • Hide Multiple Columns: The Edit | Hide Column command now allows you to select and hide multiple columns. Only adjacent columns can be selected to hide. You can undo hiding columns or go to the Choose Columns panel to redisplay hidden columns.
  • Citeline Pharmaprojects: Adds country details to the Drug Development Phase column, and adds a new Filtered Drug Development Phase column based on your query.
  • TrialTrove: Adds support for new fields such as Drug Targets, Oncology Biomarkers, Endpoint Keywords, and Patient Age Groups.

Introducing Version 5.5 (2022-04-04)

  • Easier workflow for exports and statistics: You can now create exports and open statistics in Excel without having to specify a file name. Click the Open button to launch the file immediately, or Save to choose a file name.
  • Export to Word - Chart and Records: Tables in the records are more condensed (less wasted space)
  • Biomedical databases on STN: Support for the new STNext BizInt export. Search term highlighting in BizInt records (not tables) is supported when using this export.

New and Fixed in Version 5.4.1 (2022-03-11)

Introducing Version 5.4 (2021-11-26)

We are pleased to announce version 5.4 of the BizInt Smart Charts Drug Development Suite, introducing a simplified Reference Rows workflow and the ability to hide Reference Rows, as well as a few other improvements.

Reference Rows

  • New workflow: Send to Reference Rows command now sends a chart from BizInt Smart Charts directly to Reference Rows, without having to save the chart or go through a wizard.
  • Hide Reference Rows: a new Hide Reference Rows command is available on the right-mouse menu. You can also hide and move Reference Rows, and make them visible again, with the new View | Reference Rows panel.
  • Common Drug Name and Common Trial ID columns are now automatically generated when you combine charts, or when you send a combined chart to Reference Rows.
  • A new row number scheme, icons, and glyphs.
