Updates to Console data, features, and functionality
- Pivot table functionality: Complaint data can now be "pivoted" between two variables.
- New complaint stage structure: It's now easier to filter complaints by whether particular stages occurred, and whether key milestones (registration, eligibility, monitoring, etc) were passed.
- Document Search: Document Search allows users to search the text from any complaint documents hosted on registries.
- 2020 Complaints added: The Database is now current with all posted complaint information through December 2020.

Complaint stage information is a critical component in helping us understand how accountability mechanisms function in practice. Recent updates to our methodology on complaint stages provide further insights into things like registration criteria, eligibility trends, and outputs for communities -- helping inform a community-centered approach to our data.
