What’s new

Database and Application optimisation

In order to improve site performance, especially during busy periods, developers are working to improve the behaviour of the database and the website. Areas for focus on this occasion included: Learning Logs, Educational Supervisors Report, Evidence and Messaging.


Regulatory update to the ARCP form to include an additional field for ‘absence in days’.

Indicators for Potential Underperformance

Additional contextual guidance for Trainees and Supervisors in the ‘word pictures’ for each professional competence area to help recognise ‘IPUs’. A link to a supporting guide has been added to the site also.

The following updates and fixes apply to the Educational Supervisors Report:

Updated text labels to the actions boxes to differentiate suggested and agreed actions.

The updated ESR includes a question for the ES (yes/no). The responses have been made visible.

Fixed a bug where some users are presented with the error “given key was not present in dictionary” in the competence areas.

Updated layout to display contents of feedback including linked evidence without having to click on individual records.

Fixed an issue where some text may be cropped in the pdf.

Fixed an issue where tagged evidence may display temporarily as ‘0’.

Aligned question and answer text.

Tweak the display of PDP logic.

Fixed an issue where line breaks and paragraphs are lost.

Updated the logic for accessing the final page, behaviour is different using the navigation tab or the ‘continue and save’ button.

Internet Explorer 8: Issue resolved for exporting ESRs.

Admin Reporting

Some Admin reporting will be restored in the weeks following this update.

Additional updates include:

CSR: corrected an issue where version 1 results are displaying incorrectly.

CbD: tweaked the logic for displaying CbD’s submitted in a review period.

Text not visible issue: html tags can render some text entries invisible (e.g. < and >).

Educators’ Notes: Fixed an issue where line breaks and paragraphs are lost.

Learning Log: fixed a bug where the ‘new comments’ notification is permanently displayed.

RCGP Trainee ePortfolio known issues

Here is an up-to-date list of the higher priority known issues that have been raised for fixing to our developers. They are being worked on based upon number of users affected, the functionality they relate to and the impact to usage of the site.

  • Browser Issues: Some browsers behave differently. We are working to improve consistency across platforms.
  • Site layout: the site format has been updated to use the width of the screen, all pages will be tidied and formatted to make the best use of this change.
