      📝 xBit 3.6 Release Notes - Latest 🔥

      Fool-proof your US Secret Service Stats. We make it
      EASY to upload your results to US Secret Service's Forensic Partner Reporting (FPR) tool

      What you can expect with the latest release 😋:

      • New USSS tab on Case Dashboard
      • Automatic checks for required USSS fields on export
      • New USSS field grouping for new case

      🚀 New features

      🧩 USSS Stats - Streamline uploads to the USSS FPR website

      ⚠️ Please note that the new USSS Feature is only available to those who enable USSS stats in their settings. To enable, in the menu go to Admin > About / Settings and then in the General tab select Yes for the Enable USSS Fields setting.


      One way that xBit is able to assist with your reporting needs is the ability to have your reports uploaded to the FPR tool be accepted every single time.

      One of the biggest obstacles to uploading your report to the FPR tool is that if any required fields are missing, then the entire report will be rejected. We made it incredibly simple to make sure that new cases have all these fields.

      The way we do that is we alert the user to any fields that may be missing for that particular case when they go to download their report. If there are fields missing, the user is prompted to fill in the missing fields.

      Clicking Fix will bring you to the case page where there is a new tab for USSS Stats. Here you can fill in any missing data.


      xBit makes it easy to fill out all the required USSS fields when creating a new case. When you click on a new case, all the relevant USSS fields will be grouped together in the middle column for you to fill out. It is not required that you fill these out, but you will need to in order to upload your results.


      However, xBit makes it easy for you to fill out this information and will auto-fill information based on previous information entered. When you fill out a new case, you should have all USSS fields entered besides the Exam End Date.
