Proposed changes to switching between Sub Companies

I wanted to run an idea by everyone to see what you think.

Recently a user explained to me that when he has several sub Companies, and those Companies have sub Companies, it is cumbersome to get back to the all the Companies directly below him.

Currently if you want to go to a sub Company that is directly under your Company, you hit "Switch", and select the Company you want to switch to. If you need to go a Company beneath that sub Company, you can hit Switch again.

The problem is what if you want to get back to all the Companies that are directly below your Company? Now you have to hit "Reset" and start the whole switch process over again.

What if once you went to a sub Company beneath one of your sub Companies, there was an "Up" button, or something similar that allowed you to go one level up, so when you press "Up", and it takes you back to directly below your Company.

Sorry for the convoluted description, but does this sound like it would be useful to anyone out there? Vote it up if you think so!

I am in favor of the change. My example is for a university where IT wants to manage the overall campus and have sub networks for each college within the university.

Allowing to jump from one college to the next's - sub-account easily would be a nice simplification to allow for easier management of the network.

Just starting running into this week while building our clientele base in Rise.

I have a client who has 5 stores that I want to be subs of his main store account, but when I switch, YES I have to go RESET in order to view the other child companies of his main.

this would be handy, now with the recent change to switching between companies it is even more difficult to switch between, I have a Top Company and very nested sub-companies, drilling down and back up again is NOT an easy task, even less now with the most recent changes

I haven't experienced this yet, but I could see it being a nuisance. I am thinking, if you are overall admin...make it similar to a website's breadcrumbs.

I also would like to report a similar issue, if I am in a Presentation Design mode, and attempt to switch companies, I get the red "Error: Remote Procedure Call Failure." In order to switch, I need to be in one of the main 6 sections of the site..Presentation, Schedules, Displays, etc.

P.S. I am still learning the new interface, but really like the new look, feel, and response time.
Keep up the great work!

Kim and Adgators,

Just to make you aware, this is a known issue. Our developer has this on his list of things to take care of. I can't give you a date on the fix, but I can tell you it is in the queue and will be taken care of.
