5. Clearer when having multiple study plans open in different tabs

6. New option: “Not specified”

The new default option “Not specified” will be introduced for fields where the user today chooses between “Yes” and “No” and today’s default is “No.” Study plans that are already checked “No” or “Yes” will not be automatically checked to “Not specified” however.
