Users reported that third-party users of shared pages were often finding bringing forward of items confusing - sometimes entering "same as last year" or "as above" instead of bringing forward and/or editing prior year items.
We have addressed this by changing the way these work slightly.
We have amended the instructions seen by third parties at the top of shared pages as follows:
We have also made the bring-forward button larger and more obvious:
Also, immediately an item is brought forward the alternative (text box, yes/no, multi-choice etc) disappears, indicating to the user that they must either enter a new comment or bring forward prior year - they cannot have both.
We hope this clears up some confusion for your clients using shared pages.
