what's new icon-link
The link simply takes you to the module, but not necessarily to the correct screen:
e.g. a new calendar event in jan 10: clicking the link shows the current month (where in this test there's nothing): this is illogical to the user.
If possible the what's new link should take you to a screen where the new item is clearly marked out.
E.g.: a new document in a long list of documents is difficult to spot...

- Status changed from New to Needs more info
This is easy as long as there is only one new item, but with several new items we would need either a common link, or we would need an icon for each and every changed item which would basically screw up the links

True, but not insurmountable: one link per type is enough if all new items are clearly marked and shown in the suitable view type (e.g. list view for calendar events)
Suggestion: as long as an item is not opened it remains 'new', compare to 'read/unread' in mail; we also need the possibility then to mark (all/ all selected) items 'read'. In this way 'what's new' will give a far better picture than it does now
