What's New in 2017 - R3.1 Service Pack - July 2017

The Viewpoint For Projects™ 2017-3.1 service pack release contains several bug fixes that improve the usability of the application, particularly in relation to the Multi File Upload feature. In the table below, bug fixes related to the Multi File Upload feature are labeled with the text "MFU."

Item ClearView # Description
Unexpected errors occurred when exporting the results of a sub-container search 66045 When you exported the results of a sub-container search, unexpected errors occurred. With this fix, you can search for items at any container level and export the search results without issue.
No indication in editable grid that previous revisions are not editable 64998 Previously, users had no visual indication (for example, an error message) that changes to previous revisions of an item were not permitted in the editable grid. With this fix, the editable grid option is now disabled when older revisions are returned in search results.
MFU - Link to item in an email notification did not work 65388 Error messages were unexpectedly received when a user clicked on the link to an item within an email notification. In some cases, this issue occurred when the Multi File Upload feature was enabled. Now, the links to items within email notifications work as expected.
MFU - '&' character in item description displayed incorrectly on matrix transmittals and associated notifications 65624 When the '&' character was used in an item's description and the item was uploaded using the Multi File Upload feature, the character showed incorrectly on matrix transmittals and their associated notifications.
MFU - Item couldn't be registered from Upload Progress panel unless it was accessed from the document container n/a The user was unable to register an item from the Upload Progress panel unless they accessed the panel from the document container. With this fix, this issue no longer occurs.
MFU - User was unable to deselect workflow in MFU 65137 When editing a document, the user was unable to uncheck the workflow trigger if the Multi File Upload feature was enabled. With this fix, you can deselect the workflow trigger as expected.
MFU - Attachments couldn't be removed from an item 66134 When editing a document, attachments were not displayed under the Advanced Settings and therefore could not be removed. This issue occurred only if the Multi File Upload feature was enabled. With this fix, attachments are now displayed as expected on the Edit page and can be removed if needed.
MFU - Owner and Author of item were blank after the owner was revoked 65899 When the Multi File Upload feature was enabled, the Owner and Author fields of a document incorrectly appeared as empty after the owner was revoked. With this fix, the Owner and Author fields continue to list the revoked user until you explicitly change their values.
MFU - Revision status of new revision didn't auto-populate from previous revision 65555

When uploading a new revision using the Multi File Upload feature and the Maintain Metadata setting was enabled, the revision status incorrectly showed as blank rather than carrying over from the previous revision. Now, this issue no longer occurs.

MFU - Search for users to add as recipients didn't work when based on email address 66394 When the Multi File Upload feature was enabled and you searched for users to add as recipients to a document based on email address, no results were returned. With this fix, searching for users based on email address returns the expected results.
MFU - Performance issues when uploading items on poor internet connections n/a Users previously experienced performance issues when uploading items using the Multi File Upload feature on intermittent or poor internet connections. With this fix, uploads should be more reliable and complete more quickly on intermittent or poor internet connections
MFU - String reference error encountered when registering documents 65274 Users unexpectedly encountered a string reference error when registering documents. This error occurred when the Multi File Upload feature was enabled and the culture and date format for the container were not the same value. With this fix, this issue will no longer occur, and you can successfully register documents.
Bidders were able to retrieve bid items in tenders that did not allow bid retrieval 66908 After submitting a bid, bidders were able to retrieve bid items in tenders that did not allow bid retrieval. With this fix, this issue will no longer occur.
Item stuck in workflow if a user reverted vote while a compliance node was updating item 49347 An item would get stuck in a workflow if a user reverted their vote while a compliance node was updating the item. With this fix, this issue will no longer occur.
Error when saving custom view ordered by date created 65758 An error unexpectedly occurred when the user tried to save a custom view that was ordered by name, description, date created, revision date modified, or organisation. With this fix, the view can be saved as expected.
Unable to save contract form when user who implemented contract didn't have Manage Contracts permission for enterprise 49893 Users were unable to save a contract form when the user who implemented the contract did not have the Manage Contracts permission set at the enterprise level. With this fix, the form will save as expected.
Error received when federating models 66818 Users received a "failure streaming model data" error when attempting to federate models. With this fix, this issue no longer occurs.
Export to BCF didn't work on tasks generated in a federated model 67073 When a user selected a task in a federated model and clicked on the Export to BCF icon in the left pane, no action was performed by the system. With this fix, clicking the Export icon to export a task from a federated model produces a BCF file as expected.
