Read About the Newest Additions to the PlexTrac Platform

August 6th, 2020

While the preponderance of development work at PlexTrac continues to focus on our exciting new Runbooks module, we’ve still found the cycles to deliver some exciting new features in addition to important performance enhancements and bug fixes.

If we are hosting for you, you already have this functionality or will in the coming days. Self-hosting? Check out the link at the bottom to get to the documentation for performing updates.

Import / Export Assessments

Many of our Clients rely upon our Assessments module to perform a variety of tasks today, spanning everything from 500+ control framework-based assessments to simple pre-engagement scoping surveys. Users can now export and import these Assessments as JSON files. This feature has a multitude of use cases, to include:

  • Sharing of standardized question sets for both popular and highly specific assessment frameworks
  • File-based archiving of important Assessments to ensure rapid restoration in the event of interruption in availability
  • Versioning / Tailoring of question sets, e.g. to limit assessed controls to the required maturity level of the recipient

You will find the export feature in multiple locations. When reviewing all available Assessments, an additional action button is available for rapid exportation:

You can also export an Assessment while building / editing, enabling snapshotting of your progress:

The import feature is available from the Manage Questionnaires page:

Re-Design of the UI in Edit Finding Page

We’ve re-skinned the Edit Finding page, bringing the new easy-on-the-eyes theme to this highly used section:
