Improving the layout of the 'Against' -strength label, for both the recommendation and key information/EtD.


The labels are now red, not part green/yellow, part red, but 2 shades of fully red. There are 'Harms/negative'- labels added to the key information/ evidence to Decision factors too, to make the color-framework more consistent.

Alternative names for Recommendation strength and tabs.


Organizations can now set alternative names for recommendation strength and tabs, while still adhering to the Strong/Weak framework of GRADE. This way organizations can display labels that is more familiar to their readers.

Two new Strength labels


After feedback of a need to label recommendations as public health recommendations, while still following standards for trustworthy guidelines, or clearly state if a recommendation is consensus-based, we added these two labels. To differentiate the labels from the normal GRADE framework, they are placed under the category non-GRADE labels.

The organization filter on the home page is more visible.


After feedback that the Organization filter was hard to find we moved the filter up next to the search input. We hope that will make it easier to find and use.

Improved Easier upload of PDF cover pages


Many administrators have experienced that their PDF cover pages were being slightly re-sized when uploaded. This was due to the standard setting of US letter size. You can now choose between US letter size or the more common A4, with A4 being the default.
