Release 12.1: April 22, 2012, (Australia/New Zealand), and other instances to follow.
Overview of the main changes
Enhanced user controls for Org Admins & Project Admins
Org Admins and Project Admins can now manage which users in their organization can:
· Create Mail on a per project level
· Supersede documents on a per project level
Customized appearance of transmittals
Project owners can now customize transmittal views, nominating which document fields are displayed. This allows users to select the view that’s the most appropriate for the properties of the transmittal attachment.
Users can now view in their Document Register a stream showing recent events – what’s been revised, by whom, and when. Users can see at a glance everything that’s been happening in their register.
Note : This feature will be available at the end of May.
Quickly access critical project information on the Tasks page
Project Admins can now configure a new section to display to all users the six (maximum) most critical or relevant files that all users need to know about or be familiar with on their project.
Improvements to Cascading Metadata
If cascading metadata is enabled for your project, fields in a hierarchy are now grouped. This is to help speed up assigning metadata.
Project settings can now be copied - from an existing to a new project
To create a new project, users can copy the following information of an existing project:
· Project details
· Mail / Document role settings
· Document fields along with the values present in the fields (including cascading metadata)
· Document numbering schemes
· Document / Workflow review outcomes
· Project Preference settings
· Transmittal attachment views
Note: The actual documents and mail are not copied to the new project
