ServiceNow® is all about better user experiences and to that end, there are new usability enhancements in Madrid. Some of the new usability enhancements are regarding:
Creating callouts in the Guided Tour Designer has been streamlined with a single button that reduces the chance for an error when creating a flow. To avoid targeting all employees by accident, the tour creator is explicitly prompted for a role assignment.
The Instance Security Dashboard has been rebuilt and redesigned as the Instance Security Center using the Service Portal for a more intuitive user experience. The homepage provides a concise glimpse of current security levels so administrators can identify and respond to any security issues.
Administrators of the Service Portal can incorporate multiple catalogs and knowledge bases and rely on specific user permissions to filter visibility on catalog items and articles that users see.
