kajo release notes

Release Notes

We are continually working to improve your kajo experience,
here is a summary of what has changed




List of deputy users
  • The User section on the Configuration page now shows the full list of deputy users. Previously only one deputy user was shown.
  • We fixed an issue that prevented customers from confirming a bulletin when a user function didn't have a primary user set



  • We fixed an issue that made task for which the user is a deputy to be shown in the dashboard data
  • We improved the "Tasks" list. The filter for users will now only return tasks linked to the selected primary users


New bulletin subscription based on categories

New bulletin subscription

It is now possible that Kajo users can select the impact categories for which they would like to receive a new bulletin notification. Then, whenever a bulletin is published that matches the chosen categories, Kajo will send you a notification.

My Bulletin and My Task for deputy users

Multiple Deputies

We have updated the My Bulletin/My Task lists and added support to show bulletins and tasks for which the logged-in Kajo user is not only a linked primary user but also a deputy user. This improvement gives users a complete overview of all bulletins/tasks they have an active stake in.

Support for multiple deputies per user function

Kajo now allows customers to add more than one deputy user per user function. It is beneficial for bigger teams where multiple people are involved in working on Kajo tasks. If you want to benefit from this feature, then please get in touch with us at kajo@rivero.tech and send us your desired changes so that we can update your Kajo framework. Scheme Compliance Manager should note that the configuration view in Kajo will be updated in a future release in order to make the multiple deputies visible. Currently, Kajo only shows the first deputy user in the configuration UI.


We have updated several underlying components that power Kajo in the background. As part of these updates, some users that recently accessed Kajo can get a "403 - forbidden / access denied" response when they try to log in again. To resolve this issue, Kajo users are advised to access their browser's cookie settings and delete the kajo.rivero.app cookies. For Kajo users using chrome, type the following into the address bar to find your cookies: chrome://settings/siteData?searchSubpage=kajo.


New Feature: Manage your notifications

Notification Management

We have added new functionality in the "My Settings" area, allowing Kajo users to select and unselect the different notification types.

The first three notification types are not user-specific and mainly relevant for Scheme Compliance Managers

The last two notifications with the prefix "My Task" are user-specific.

The notifications that you already receive today are enabled by default and no action is required to enable them.

We are also excited to let you know that we have further improvements regarding notifications in the making: Overdue bulletin notifications, overdue task notifications, and consolidating notifications into one email per day. So stay tuned for more to come!


List Filter

Kajo persists the selected sorting value in all the list views (Bulletin, My Buleltin, Task, My Task). This means that the list will be shown with your selected sorting value applied when you navigate back to the list from a bulletin detail or task detail view.

Sometimes bulletins contain multiple amendments with different effective dates. To better manage such circumstances, we enabled Kajo to be able to handle multiple amendments of the same type.

We fixed an issue with line breaks in the Kajo e-mails.


New Scheme Publication: Visa Technical Letter

Technical Letter

Kajo now supports and distributes Visa technical letters for you. Technical letters will come in the same form and shape that you are used to for bulletins. You can spot by checking the bulletin tag prefix that is TL for example "TL 1602" or in the bulletin overview where type will be shown as "Technical "Letter".

Hyperlink in emails

All emails have now a link included that directs you the related bulletin or task within kajo.


  • The compliance state field will now appear as disabled when the task is in state rejected and a tooltip will guide the user
  • The action indicator "Brand Mandate" will now be shown as "Mandate"
  • We also added a new action indicator called "Testing Required"
  • For some upcoming self-servicing features (stay tuned) support was added to be able to create, update and delete users



  • Small bugfixes


New Feature: My Settings

My Settings

We added the My Settings page to kajo. End-users can now access their user profile via the My Settings menu to see their user data, including their kajo user role. The page also shows the functions and deputy functions the user owns. The My Settings page will further evolve in the coming weeks as we add new features.


  • We improved the bulletin confirmation step so that it is more apparent to end-users when all tasks have been created, especially if high amounts of tasks are being confirmed
  • We added a spinner to the bulletin confirmation step
  • We optimized the event replaying to make deployments five times faster and laid the groundwork to enable some exciting features in the future



  • We were busy improving a few things in the background to keep things running smoothly



  • The columns in the section Related Content have been refitted to fit the space better
  • Scheme updates for bulletins that were published before a customer started using kajo will now be shown as applicable


New Feature: Confirm inapplicable bulletins


In the "all bulletin" list, you may sometimes find greyed out bulletins that our kajo engine rated as inapplicable for you. So far, you could not confirm such bulletins even if the Scheme Compliance Manager determined that they are relevant for your organization. With this latest update, we change this behaviour. The Scheme Compliance Manager can now also confirm inapplicable bulletins and create related tasks for your organization.

Improvement: Sort related bulletins


We added a new column to the related bulletins table in the bulletin detail view to show you the last update date of the linked bulletins. Seeing the last update date is especially handy if there are several bulletins with the same name. We also added the capability to sort the table.

Additional improvements and bugfixes

  • We added an improved bulletin versioning scheme in the background
  • We fixed an issue that caused a blank page after a page refresh
  • The logging capabilities in kajo have been enhanced
  • The Service Now connector has been improved against outages and timeouts



  • We removed an empty choice from the list of compliance states shown on task level.
  • The Service Now comments journal now shows the latest comments first.
  • The region labels have been switched from German to English.
  • The audit trail logging has been enhanced.
  • Bulletins are no longer intercepted based on the date when a customer starts using kajo.
  • A bug with the bulletin versioning has been fixed.


New Feature: Service Now Integration

kajo integrates with Service Now to extend task management to this third-party app. With this feature, kajo can create dedicated kajo tasks in Service Now and continually poll them to keep them updated in kajo. Events in kajo such as reopen, kajo notes or internal remarks changes will trigger an update of the kajo task in Service Now.


New Feature: Bulletin Category Filter


This new bulletin filter is based on your specific company configuration. The filter lets you select different categories/departments and shows you a list with the relevant bulletins.

Improvement: Work Log


We changed the "Notes" field from a simple text field to an edit and save field for better change control. The fields "Related Projects" and "Related Changes" have been removed (we didn't see any usage of these fields).

New Feature: Hyperlinks in Notes and Internal Notes

The "Notes" field on task level and the "Internal Remarks" field on bulletin level show any added link as a clickable hyperlink that opens a new tab. This new feature can be helpful when you reference other internal documents, tasks or intranet pages. Furthermore, you can also add links to other kajo tasks or bulletins.

Additional Improvements

  • We fixed a bug that caused the dashboard graphs for "All Tasks Created/Closed (Last 12 Months)" and "Bulletins Published (Last 12 Months)" to show incorrect data.



  • The default tab for the bulletin list and task list has been changed so that the most useful view is set by default.
  • kajo tags the main document per amendment.
  • The columns in the configuration view is sortable.

04.05.2021 <(°.°)>


  • The Scheme Compliance Manager can now access the configuration page through the left-hand menu section in kajo. The configuration page gives you an overview of all users, functions and categories of your tenant and how they are connected.
  • We have empowered the Scheme Compliance Manager to not only close tasks that are finished or rejected but to close any task regardless of its state. This gives the Scheme Compliance Manager the ability to close a task where the linked user is unresponsive or absent.



  • Fixed a bug that caused the re-sending of email notifications
  • Minor improvements



  • kajo remembers your filter selection so that you can navigate back from the detail view and still find your filtered bulletin or task list.
  • Minor bugfixes
