ROVER Release 8A new and improved functionality

This release focuses on improved reporting capability and performance improvements for applications, especially those with large amounts of data. 

Varying an approval: When you start an application to vary an approval, ROVER will send the applicant a notification email when it has been created and is ready to be used.

Road Vehicle Descriptors (RVDs): RVDs will be added via an improved form which contains tables that can be sorted and searched. You will have the ability to name subcomponents and systems (e.g. name an engine), and specify the typical Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for variants. Applicants will also be able to download a PDF of their RVD from their application in ROVER.

Design and manufacturing facilities: Design and manufacturing facilities in an application will be provided in an improved table that can be sorted. You can also edit and remove facilities from the table. 

Vehicle safety and non-compliance reporting: Users will have the ability to submit vehicle safety and non-compliance reports via ROVER. 

Customisable billing details and invoices: Users with the relevant access will have the ability to add a payment contact and a billing address. They can also add their own information to invoices (e.g. a purchase order number).

Register of Approved Vehicles (RAV) batch details: A RAV icon will be added to the dashboard. Here, RAV submitters will be able to manage RAV submitter permissions, and search and export details of their RAV batches to support their business processes.

Authorised vehicle verifier (AVV) icon: The AVVs tab in ROVER will be replaced with an AVV icon in the dashboard.

Authority to act functions: There will be two new functions – RAV management, and reporting vehicle safety and non-compliance issues.
