Version 2.36

Latest Version Release 2.36 Roll-out

Periodically we will be doing version roll-outs while we look at a new 3.0 version of the system.

The latest version 2.36 has been rolled out and now the functionality is accessible to all.


Changes made:

Updated Reporting

The reporting system may look very similar to the general user but is now more tailorable by us.

We can now introduce new reports or edit existing reports much easier with the introduction of a new reporting system.

If you need a change to an existing report or introduction of a new report please do not hesitate to contact us.


Forgot Your Password

Users from time to time forget their passwords.

To have their password reset users needed to contact a system manager or administrator.

Now users can update their passwords themselves using the “I forgot my password” link shown in the image below.

Password Reset

New forgotten password link to gain a new password










The process is simple:
  1. Click the link to produce a popup
  2. Enter your username or email address associated with the issue account –  If either are incorrect, you will receive an error message and need to go back and try again
  3. The users is then emailed a code to enter into the popup
  4. Enter the code and the preferred new password
  5. Click the Change Password button


Keywords Removed From Export

Exporting metadata was including the keywords which is a list of the words used in the descriptions.

This confused some users and also slowed down the export process.

Having this removed should streamline the export process.


Help Files Opening

When selecting the help file required within the help menu on theDMSeffect, the PDF file opened in the same tab the user was using for theDMSeffect.

This meant the user needed to know to press back to return to theDMSeffect.

The PDF files now opens in a separate tab to stop this issues arising.


Bug Fixes:

Description As Keywords

The search box used to search the descriptions was titled Keywords.

The title is now Descriptions to reduce confusion on how to search the description column metadata.

Keywords was originally used due to the search actually being the keyword list created from the descriptions.


Report Filter

The remove login data tick box had a glitch where it would not remove once a report which had the option had been selected.

Now switching between reports will load the tick box when it is relevant only.


Error Messages

Some error messages were showing up when a user made a mistake but then not removing when the right action was taken.

These error messages have been addressed to refresh when a new instruction is ran.


Version 2.37 will be coming soon

This version will primarily look to address secure PDF files breaking the use of the system.

From time to secure PDF files are uploaded to the system. Secure PDF files do not allow the system to enter watermarks or allow for the file to combine into combined PDF files (in our system the book function uses this).


Additional Changes In Planning:

  • More Granular Security Model
  • Updated Search Engine
  • Isolation System
