Newton Summer 2018 Update Feature Highlights
What is the Newton Release Preview Program?

The Newton Summer 2018 Update is now available as part of our Newton Release Preview Program. Although the release may not be feature-complete, we offer early access to participating agencies. Participation in the release preview program entirely optional and free of charge. See the information block at to the top of the release notes to get started.

Enhanced Tabbed Interface

Newton by Agency Systems now features an enhanced tabbed interface providing additional customization, flexibility, and control for the primary data dashboards.

The primary navigation for Newton by Agency Systems has contained a number of static navigation tabs for many years. Over time the capabilities for each of the tabs have been enhanced, but the same static number of tabs has remained constant.

Many tabs contained sub-tabs to separate different data views, such as expired policies, accounting, attachments, and download. The sub-tabs have been located at the bottom of the primary tabs, and have often displayed information in a more basic list view compared to the comprehensive band view available on the primary tabs.


Customized Tab Count

The enhanced tabbed interface provides users with the ability to control the number of active tabs, similar to tabs in a web browser. In addition to the Client and Company Tab changes, the new Policy Express dashboard and Diary windows now open as full screen tabs.

Easier to Access Sub-Tabs
