The most significant change in Elliott Version 8 is introduction of the Control Center which replaced the main menu in v7.5. The Version 8 Control Center provides a more elegant and intuitive user interface. Your company selections and menus appear in an easy-to-read tree structure and can be quickly navigated from the control center.
Version 8 allows you to customize the Control Center. It supports drag-and-drop customization. You can change the description, sequence within type (e.g. maintenance, processing), frequency, and risk of any task. You can create new task groups for a company and drag-and-drop tasks from multiple modules/types.
In addition, Elliott Version 8 supports two customization levels. The task customization can be at the company level, which applies to all users of a company, or at the user level, which applies to the individual user only. Each task has its own screen and process. In Version 8, you can change fonts and font sizes intuitively. The fonts can be changed by selecting from a list of available fonts or by resizing the window or with a button to increase and decrease the size.
