For added convenience, ChangeSynergy is shipped with an embedded high performance LDAP server. · Customized Interfaces - Users can now add new roles and define customized interfaces for theses roles directly from the Graphical User Interface (GUI) over the Web. A custom interface can be created in minutes and tailored to a specific role, including writer, customer, project manager or developer. · Full Text Search Capabilities - The Web-like search engine enables users to search on change requests, tasks, or both, as well as search across multiple databases.
