A Note from Pete

I can’t believe it has already been four months since we had IMUC 2024 – and we’re already starting to plan for 2025. It was amazing to see you all in person and hear about how FAST works for you and the direction you’d like to go in the future. This year’s IMUC will be held in beautiful Banff, Alberta. I know many of you were looking forward to this event before COVID, and we are excited that we'll now be able to follow through on this location!

You may not know it, but we have new releases every 6-8 weeks to integrate exciting new solutions and features. Be sure to check out our release guides to see what’s new. If you’re running a version before 4.8.03, it’s time to schedule your upgrade. Contact our support team at to reserve your spot on our upgrade calendar!

Add a Tooltip to a Column Title

When you're training new employees on a report in FAST, you can save a lot of time by adding a tooltip to a column. A tooltip allows you to add text that appears as a pop-up when users hover their cursor over the column title, which can help with additional explanation beyond the column title. To add a tooltip, access the Administration tab of a report. Expand the Data Grid Columns section. Navigate to the column row and scroll to the right to find the tooltip. Enter the text you would like to display when a user hovers their mouse over the column. Save the report and execute it to confirm the changes. Be aware you are limited to 500 characters.

 Editable Textboxes!

We're thrilled to announce that our Form Generator now empowers you to create even more dynamic and interactive PDF documents. Say hello to editable text boxes! This new feature will be available in Release 5.0.3

What's New?

--> Export PDFs with Editable Textboxes: When you generate a PDF from your forms, the text boxes within the document remain fully editable. Users can type, modify, and update their information directly within the PDF.

--> Seamless User Experience: Whether it's application forms, surveys, or contracts, your users can now complete and revise their responses without leaving the PDF environment.

--> Effortless Customization: Customize the appearance of textboxes, adjust font sizes, and choose from various styling options. Make your forms look professional and user-friendly.
