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.
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.
New forgotten password link to gain a new password
The process is simple:
Click the link to produce a popup
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
The users is then emailed a code to enter into the popup
Enter the code and the preferred new password
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.
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.
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.
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).
theDMSeffect is a Drawing and Document Management Program – with both online cloud and onsite installation based solutions available.
theDMSeffect has been built from the ground up, with the idea of making Drawing and Document Management a much simpler task; all the while still offering all of the functions and utilities that complete a system.
