We're pleased to present our 2021.3 Service Update. In addition to a variety of minor enhancements and stability improvements, this release includes the following features, changes, and issue resolutions:
Our new Integrations tab in the Configuration area provides a simple interface that provides centralized management of all your integrations. From user management and document editor integrations (which have moved here from Policy Profiles) to file sharing APIs, your integrations will be easier to find and manage now that they're all in one place.
We've also added a new file sharing API that makes adding new integrations a simple process, and built-in, interactive documentation removes all guesswork.
For details, please refer to Integrations
You can now see all of your team's locked files in one place on the Manage Projects page. Just go to Team > Manage Projects, and click the Locked Files button to generate a list of all files in Workplace currently locked by any method, across all users. From here, you'll have access to all file functions that you'd normally be able to execute on this page.
This page is, as it has always been, available to super administrators only, unless you've granted enable super admin access for your service provider. For more information about that, please refer to Enable Super Admin access for your service provider.
We've also made a change to the behavior of the Manage Servers > Server details: Locked Files view. Previously, this view displayed only files that were locked by the application and then converted to a system lock by the Workplace Server. All locked files will now be displayed in that view, regardless of the method by which they were locked.
In the interest of clarity, we've renamed the Saved Reports function in Workplace to Manage Reports:
We'd also like to draw your attention to the integration-related events now available on the Team report for administrators:
- Integration Created
- Configuration Changed
- Integration Deleted
- Integration Enabled
- Integration Disabled
- Folder Linked
- Folder Unlinked
Changes made to items via the new file sharing API will appear in existing report events with the name you gave the integration.
For more information, please refer to Reports.
In order to offer a consistent experience across Workplace components, we've changed two tab titles on the Workplace Online dashboard. The "Recent Changes" tab is now titled "Team Activity," and "Locked Files" is now simply called "Locked." This brings these titles into alignment with the naming conventions we've employed in Workplace v10 and Workplace Mobile.
We've removed this option from the interface public share recipients see when they view an item, as all items nested under it were available on the main button menu for that interface.
In addition to the issue resolutions list below, we continue to make general improvements to enhance stability, performance, and the end user experience. An improvement of note is the resolution of several issues related to service and app communication, which will enhance Workplace app performance and stability.
On Branding pages, the "select your own color" color wheel function did not work correctly. Users are now able to set their own custom color, as designed.
In Workplace team portal, selecting a project with multiple image files in it, then opening one of the images should provide the user with the ability to navigate from one image to another. In this issue, selecting such an image did not allow for navigation between images. Users can now move back and forth between images.
When files or folders were moved, the comments associated with them were not retained as they ought to have been. Comments now remain associated with items after they have been moved.
Under some circumstances, undeleting a project or folder could fail. The issue has been resolved, and the undelete function now works as designed.
Files with .drw and .dwf extensions did not convert properly for display in Workplace Online. The issue has been corrected for these file types; they can now be converted and displayed successfully.
