Known Issues that will be addressed in future releases:

  • When building a region of different types of geographic areas, CBB warns users when the boundaries of their region may overlap with the area the user is trying to add, but the user CAN accept the overlapping areas resulting in data duplication.
  • A message intermittently appears in both editions, but the map and report builds correctly.
  • When scroll through the Map Variables menu and select a variable, the list returns to the top, obscuring the selected variable.
  • The X and Y axis labels in the dashboard and report charts are sometimes truncated for long values
