  • Se ha incluido una traducción al inglés de la herramienta generado a través de herramientas de traducción automática
  • There have created new functions for the management of seeds associated with an observatory improve their characterization to control their subsequent performance and aggregation of results.
  1. Gestión de complejidades para analizar diferente número de páginas de un sitio web en función de su complejidad.
  2. Recurrence management (fixed, pair, evens) to control the seeds that are discussed in each period of monitoring.
  3. Management of tags by type of service (education, health, etc.), geographic location, the institutional level, etc. totally changeable for future expansion.
  4. Improvement of the import and export of seeds, with filter seeds to import/export and establishing greater controls in the process.
  5. New functionality to include seeds en bloc from a file to an already created observatory.
  6. New field of "comments" for seeds.
  • New features to the process of generating reports dynamic aggregates through templates and the characterization of the seed.

Todas estas nuevas funcionalidades han sido desarrolladas permitiendo la compatibilidad hacia atrás para las instituciones que ya tengan instalada la versión previa de la herramienta.

  • An English translation of the tool generated through automatic translation tools has been included
  • New functionalities have been created for the management of seeds associated with an observatory, improving their characterization to control their subsequent execution and aggregation of results:
  1. Complexity management to analyze different number of pages of a website depending on its complexity.
  2. Recurrence management (fixed, even, odd) to control the seeds that are analyzed in each monitoring period.
  3. Label management by type of service (education, health, etc.), geographical location, institutional level, etc. fully parameterizable for future expansion.
  4. Improvement of the import and export of seeds, being able to filter the seeds to import / export and establishing greater controls in the process.
  5. New functionality to include block seeds from a file to an already created observatory.
  6. New field of "Observations" for seeds.
  • New features for the process of generating dynamic aggregated reports through templates and characterization of the seed.

All these new functionalities have been developed allowing backward compatibility for institutions that already have the previous version of the tool installed.
