New and Fixed in Version 5.7.3 (2024-03-05)

This release offers a first look at enhancements to chart creation workflow and chart template capabilities in BizInt Smart Charts.

  • New chart creation workflow: You will no longer be asked for chart template during chart creation. By default, a standard "Editor's Choice" chart template is applied to all new charts during import. There is a default template for each chart type: Clinical Trials; Drug Pipelines; and Biomedical Literature.
  • A new Manage Templates command (on the File menu) can be used to delete templates, rename templates, or set a template as the default for new charts.
  • Chart templates can be used for any chart with the same type of data, regardless of the chart the template was saved from. For example, a chart template created with Pharmaprojects can be applied to a chart created from Cortellis.
  • Chart templates are now available in Reference Rows.
  • Most of the old chart templates provided by BizInt are now hidden. You can see them by checking the "Show classic templates" box at the bottom of the dialog. If you find one of these templates to be exactly like you want, we suggest that you apply it to a chart and Save as template... with your own name.
  • Cortellis: fixed a problem with loading EPhMRA codes in drug records.

New and Fixed in Version 5.7.2 (2024-02-20)

This was an early release of chart template improvements that are available in a more finished form in Version 5.7.3.

New and Fixed in Version 5.7.1 (2023-07-11)

We've made Word export enhancements based on user feedback:

  • You can change column widths in exported Word tables.
  • New option for Word exports to "auto-fit to width". This will help fit your columns on the page, but columns will only be made as small as the largest word.
  • Use File | Page Setup to specify chart orientation, paper size, and margins. By default, charts are in Landscape. Records are always in Portrait mode.

Introducing Version 5.7 (2023-05-29)

We are pleased to introduce version 5.7 featuring a major overhaul of our exports.

  • Exports to Word, Excel, and HTML: A major refresh of our exports is included in this release. We have introduced new styles and updated the old styles. Reference Rows exports now use the same styles as BizInt Smart Charts. You have a choice of style for every export, including Excel Optimized and Summary Records. We have fixed many display glitches, removed a few options that no longer made sense, and introduced a few new options, including:
    • Option to include (or omit) the chart title in the export;
    • Options for how cell sources are displayed in Reference Rows export.
    • You can learn more from this support page.
  • Sorting Development Phases: A new "Phase Sort options" item on the Options menu lets you control how inactive development phases sort. By default, inactive phases (Discontinued, Suspended, Withdrawn) sort before Preclinical. You can now select an option to have inactive phases sort after Launched.
  • Ovid: Added more segment labels for Medline. DOI is extracted from the Article Identifiers field.

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.
