A New Look in CM/ECF Version 3.1
District CM/ECF Release 3.1 includes several user interface enhancements to improve common functions, including a new cascading menu system and streamlined case selection.
While it is not as radical as Windows Vista, the cascading menus are a step forward for usability. The effect of the cascade will be to reduce the number of screens that must be navigated before getting to the docketing task at hand.
Similarly, almost every screen with a case number look-up field will be changed to reduce the number of screens presented to the user. All possible case number matches will be displayed on the same screen as the initial look-up field.
Release 3.1 is not currently available but is expected to be released within a few months.
