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.
In this release we’ve news about Oracle Aconex Mobile, using auto-numbering on budget changes in Cost, and in Mail, setting up default response times.
Note that some of the items mentioned here will be released during the 30-day release cycle, rather than at its start.
We're introducing new ways of navigating Project Settings in Setup as part of our long-term plan to update this area's look, feel and navigation. The changes will roll out over a number of releases, and will make it easier to find related settings. This includes grouping common themes together under one tab.
For example, on the Project tab, you can see the following pages:
The new Oracle Aconex mobile application is now in the app store, and is available for Apple and Android devices, including phones and tablets.
This release supports drawings, issues, pin issue to drawings and checklist inspections. In the coming months we’ll be adding PDF Forms, and will continue to integrate other features from the current mobile application suite.
You can use the new app alongside your existing Oracle Aconex Field app if you wish, and swap between the two as you get used to the new format. Please ensure you synchronize all data with the server before swapping between apps.
We've sped up the process of adding multiple budget changes with the new auto-numbering functionality. When you add a new change, and select Save & Add Another, the “Budget Change No.” field is automatically updated using the number you've just added.
And it's pretty smart too, as it updates the Budget Change No field it automatically detects the format you've used. For example, if you enter AA, and then select Save & Add Another, Aconex will call the next one AB. Likewise, if you were to call it DC-0001, then the next one would be DC-0002.
You can now filter the results of a Time Phased Data report. Having set up a filter, you can save and apply them by Control Account, Control Element, and other fields from the Cost Worksheet. See also Hiding the Unassigned Column in Time Phased Data Reports in Release 19.4.100.
You can now include JPG and PNG file types when previewing files in the Doc Register.
We've made it easier for Mail users to set response due dates, by adding functionality that lets Project Admins set time frames for the mail type selected by the mail sender. This removes the guess work for the sender as they no longer have to decide the date for themselves.
As a Project Admin, you can set the time frame for all mail types that need a responses as required. You do this using Response Time Frame in Settings/Mail Types. From here you have to:
It's now possible for you to preview, start and edit inspection PDF forms on your desktop. You can also add line, arrow, pencil and photo annotations to them. All you have to do is start a new one and select the PDF template. You can then re-open it, add updates and save it as the inspection progresses.
As of this release, you'll be able to save an inspections exported to PDF to temporary files. This means you'll not only have a record for compliance purposes, but you'll streamline sharing and collaborating on inspections using the document download and transmittal functionality.
To do this, select Actions/Save to Temporary Files and entering/saving a File Name. You'll receive an email notification once the PDF has been saved.
