Perspective 5.8 – New Features & Bug Fixes

New Features


  • A new Email Details option in the Dispatches panel allows dispatchers to the email details of an activity during any stage of the process.
  • It's now possible to add officer notes. Admins can add default notes in an officer's user profile that appear each time the officer is brought on duty, while dispatchers can add notes that are cleared when the officer's shift is completed.
  • It’s now possible to record additional location info in the new Location Details field on the Create Dispatch and Dispatch Details panels.
  • Improvements to the map and address search, including prioritizing search results based on the distance of the map’s current centered location, make it faster and easier for dispatchers to create temporary locations.
  • Dispatch users can now disable flashing alerts in the user settings to improve performance, user experience, and accessibility.

Officer Mobile

  • Officers can now create dispatches through the Officer Mobile app and are automatically assigned to a Respond and Assist task on the new dispatch.

Bug Fixes

  • The date and time of closed dispatches now successfully factor in DST (Daylight Saving Time).
  • The Database dropdown menu on the Web Portal login page no longer displays database names belonging to the previously entered business ID.
  • Selecting an officer task in the Officers panel now selects the related dispatch in the Dispatches panel when Auto-focus is enabled.
  • Fixed a bug in Analysis Expert that caused the date and time in a query to differ from the date and time of an incident record.
  • Resolved an issue that prevented an officer’s call sign from being populated in the Officer Response tab when a Dispatch is closed and moved to Perspective as an activity.
  • Fixed a bug that resulted in location pins from a previously viewed master location image to carryover on a newly opened master location image.
  • Undocking then closing a panel in Dispatch no longer unexpectedly closes the panel it was previously docked to.
