Maintenance required - Friday August 7th 10:00 pm (UTC – Coordinated Universal Time)
Support Central will be briefly offline on Friday August 7th at 10:00 pm (UTC) while we make improvements and upgrades to this site.
This month we’ve made it easier to upload files into Documents from your computer and Dropbox. You can also now edit your issue's location in the desktop version of Field and in Mail you can now "Link to Packages.
Read on for more detail on these new product features and improvements we’ll be rolling out this month in Aconex.
Note that items mentioned here may be released during this 30-day release cycle, rather than at its start. We also stagger the core release dates across the instances.

We've made a couple of updates to how things look when you're uploading and superseding files.
We've added a dropdown menu, that makes it a bit easier to select from files on your computer or Dropbox. Likewise, you can now choose from your computer or Dropbox in the Supersede file selector using the handy dropdown menu.
On the desktop version of Field you can now edit the location of an issue in either the list or grid view. This is handy if you've selected something incorrectly out on site and need to update it later.
For information, take a look at the Support Central page.
If you're a Package administrator and you've sent a mail from a package but forgotten to actually transmit the package itself, this can cause all sorts of confusion for your recipient. From now on, we will always show a reference to the package in the mail, even if it hasn't been transmitted. As soon as the recipient gets access to the package (via your package transmittal), the link will be active. We'll include a message to your recipient explaining this in the mail item as well.
In many cases projects have been running Aconex long before they started using the Packages module. This means that there could be “old” mail sent via the Mail module that Administrators or Editors want to associate with newly created packages. This month we’re rolling out the ability to do so:
Here’s a round up of the Bug Fixes we addressed this month:
You may recall over the last few months there's been a bug causing markups created in the viewer to not appear on the PDF file properly. The markups were on our server, they just weren't appearing on the PDF, which was confusing. The great news is we've finally fixed this issue and your markups will now appear as they should.
