OVERVIEW

This month we’re making it easier to find what you’re looking for on Support Central with an all-new search engine and filtering tools that help you narrow down search results. You can now search for your inspections by title in Field and life is a bit easier for Packages Administrators with a range of new features designed to improve workflow.  

Read on for more detail on these new product features and improvements we’ll be rolling out this month in Aconex.

Field

Users of the Field mobile app are now able to search for their inspection by title.

Select the search icon and enter a keyword from the title of the inspection you're seeking. When you enter the search, a filtered list of inspections will appear. You can also filter by "ME" which will show the inspections you’ve created that meet the search criteria.

Note, this feature is not available in offline mode.

Packages

If you’re an administrator using filters in the package register, these will now be remembered as you switch between packages. Previously, if you applied a filter in the package register and then went into a package on returning to the register, you’d lose the filtered result. From now on filters will only reset if you change them or log out.

When exporting from the Package Register to Excel you’ll immediately see a pop up confirming your export has started and is running in the background.

Bug Fixes:

  • When you add collaborators you can now use the following characters: \ % ` ^ { } |
  • We’ve fixed an issue that was causing information in the footer not to reflect the correct page.
  • Exporting the Package Register to excel was sporadically running into a timeout, this has also now been fixed.  

Support Central

We’ve made it easier to find what you are looking for on Support Central. With our improved search feature you can now refine your results, and trending topics links take you straight to the most requested how-to articles. 

When you’re reading a how-to article on Support Central, you’ll notice this icon appear. This is our new feedback widget and we’d love to get your thoughts on how we can improve our support content.

Viewer

We’ve fixed an issue that was causing some PDFs not to display mark-ups properly.

We’ve also released another fix for a bug caused by the use of combinations of special characters in Document Numbers. If a Document Number contains special characters in a specific pattern, the viewer was unable to display the Workflow Steps panel. This was not caused by the special characters (such as "." "-" or "_") themselves, but the pattern in which they were used to create the Document Number.

We’ve released a fix that allows you to mark-up and proceed with the current review step. However, review step details (previous and upcoming steps) that are typically visible in the right hand panel, will not be visible.
