Performance Improvements in Workflows

Changes have been made to improve system performance when adding individual users as panel members in a high-level workflow.

Bug Fixes

Item ClearView # Description
Voting on behalf of a panel member provides admin voting rights to the panel member 67193 Fixes an issue in workflows where, if an administrator voted on behalf of another panel member, admin voting rights would erroneously be provided to that panel member, allowing them to vote on behalf of other panel members. With this fix, this issue will no longer occur.
MFU - Files can be registered in bulk without selecting required keywords 67214 Fixes an issue in which users who uploaded multiple files using the Multi File Upload feature were able to register those items in bulk without selecting required keywords. With this fix, users are prompted to select required keywords before registration is finalized.
Users can't edit other users' HTML5 markups 67346 Fixes an issue where users were unable to edit other users’ HTML5 markups. With this fix, this issue no longer occurs.
MFU - Files can be registered in bulk without adding a description 67388 Fixes an issue in which users who uploaded multiple files using the Multi File Upload feature were able to register files in bulk without entering a description. With this fix, the registration will pause as expected until users enter a description for each file.
MFU - Users can't revise documents when Multi File Upload and Autonaming features are enabled 67593 Fixes an issue in which users were unable to revise any documents when both the Multi File Upload feature and the Autonaming feature were enabled.
Note: The Autonaming feature was released on September 1, and this scenario affected only a handful of customers.
With this fix, users can revise documents as expected.
Revisions of an item are not downloaded when using the Download icon 67596 Fixes an issue where using the Download icon to download multiple items would download only the first file associated with the item and not any revisions. With this fix, all files associated with the item are downloaded.
Email notification at workflow termination doesn't include comments if preceded by a compliance step 67595 Fixes an issue in which the email notification sent at termination of a workflow did not contain workflow comments if the node before the termination node was a compliance node. With this fix, the email notification sent at termination contains comments as expected.
"Current Panel Organisation" search doesn't work when workflow panel includes distribution groups 67380 Fixes an issue in which using the “Current Panel Organization” workflow criteria in an advanced search didn’t work when a workflow panel included distribution groups in instead of users. With this fix, the “Current Panel Organisation” search works as expected.
