Welcome to the latest edition of Zluri's product updates. We have set out plenty of useful features this month to ease your pain in managing SaaS. Let's have a look at them.
We have revamped the transaction upload feature. Now you can get the file validated before uploading.
And if there are any errors in the format, it will be displayed along with the error details so that you can correct the file & reupload.
Also, you can upload the file in any of your preferred date formats. You just need to select the appropriate date format while uploading the file.
Pro tip: Integrating with your financial system will save you the manual effort of uploading the transactions.
Zluri works best when you upload the metadata regarding each entity (Applications, Users, Departments) with accurate information.
However, individually updating each record is time-consuming & inefficient. Hence, we have introduced the "Bulk Update" feature.
Select the fields, download the data in the appropriate format, edit the CSV & upload it. All the records will be updated at once.
If you are a new user of the Zluri platform, you may not know where to start. You can look at our "Getting Started Guide" and follow the steps to understand how to get the maximum value out of Zluri.
IT & Finance Heads have a lot on their hands. It might so happen that an invite to a coworker might expire before he joins the platform. Now you can resend an invitation to your coworker to join the platform.
Admins can also see the last login information of other users of the platform.
All the users who have access to an application might not be using the application actively. And previously, there was no way to distinguish between the two user types.
Now, you can get the count of users who actively use the application on the "Application Overview" tab.
Zluri automatically identifies the SaaS apps used in your organization through SSO & Financial system integrations. If you see any error, you can unmap the application.
