WFDSS Spring 2017 Updates

The WFDSS Spring 2017 Update will be deployed on Training 6/7/2017 and to Production on 6/9/2017

New Updates:

NOTE: As a result of these changes, all Fire Behavior Specialists are, ostensibly, Super Analysts. Be aware that some database and help content modifications need to be completed before the Super Analyst role is fully retired. This should occur prior to fire season 2018. Once modifications are complete, all users with the Super Analyst role will become Fire Behavior Specialists, but their capabilities remain the same.
