Issues addressed in 2020 web refreshes:

 

Expected on beta servers: 

20 Nov 2020

 

Expected GA Release:
03 Dec 2020

 

20.24.0 Web Release

Issues Addressed

  • Link to Users: Fixed an issue where deleting an attribute in your repository would reset the Link to User option on any other attribute in the repository where it was previously enabled.
  • Single-character matter/workspace key: Fixed an issue where a single-character matter key (workspace key) could cause a Determined By field driven by that matter key to be completed incorrectly.
  • ndOffice login page: Fixed an issue with the login page in ndOffice (and other API-based apps) where after logging in, the user's Home Page would be shown instead of the OAuth Allow/Deny buttons.
  • Download Lookup Table: Fixed an issue where if a parent lookup table value has a hyphen in it and you have other similarly-named entries in that table, the Download option (to download the entire table) could hang in certain circumstances. 

New API Functionality and fixes

  • Additional ACLs: API users can now add additional ACL entities to the body of the POST /v1/Document call which tells the system to append the provided ACL entities after other ACL processing (inheritance, pbs, etc) so these provided ACL entities do not get overwritten by one of these other processing steps during import. This new parameter name is appendAcl and should be URL-encoded or multi-part form data like the other parameters. 

Released to GA:
19 November 2020

 

20.23.0 Web Release

New Functionality

  • Require ndClick for Internal Users: During initial startup after login, while the web UI is scanning ports to verify if ndClick is running, we now display a notification to the user which says "Looking for ndClick. Please wait..." in the bottom right corner of the screen. If ndClick is ultimately not found, then we display a message that says "ndClick not found" and we don't allow the user to perform ndClick-related functions.  

Issues Addressed

  • Drag and drop to a folder: Fixed an issue where if the user drags an item from their desktop to a folder in ND they see the item get imported properly but the import process would hang on the final page which says "Imported 1 document..." Note: This was added into 20.23.3.1111 on November 11th. 
  • Require ndClick for Internal Users: Fixed an issue in cabinets where the "Require ndClick for Internal Users" checkbox is enabled which caused users to not be notified that ndClick wasn't running if the user logged into the web without ndClick started first. We now display the message to the user telling them ndClick isn't running. 
  • Print List: Fixed an issue where the Print List function would fail to download the list in Excel format. 
  • Grant access to a workspace: Fixed an issue where users who don't have access to a workspace don't see the link that says "Submit a request to be granted access." Users now have this link available to them again.
  • Moving an item from a Sharespace: Fixed an issue where the Move/Copy dialog would hang when users tried to use the Move function on a document from a search results list where that document was stored in a Sharespace. 
  • Duplicate folder names in a workspace: Fixed an issue where if a user attempted to create a workspace folder with the same name as an existing folder in that workspace, it would give them an alert but no error message text would be displayed. We now tell the user "The parent workspace already contains a folder with this name."
  • Multi-value Profile Attributes: Fixed an issue where if a multi-value profile attribute (MVP) was set on a folder with multiple values, a document filed into that folder did not inherit those multiple values as they should. Documents filed into folders now inherit all values from an MVP correctly. 
  • Single-character matter/workspace key: Fixed an issue where a single-character matter key (workspace key) could cause a Determined By field driven by that matter key to be completed incorrectly. NOTE: This was added into the 20.23.5.1117 web build on November 17th. 

New API Functionality and fixes

  • Version Sizes: API users can now retrieve version sizes and the total size of all combined version using
    GET /v2/document/{id}/info?select=Versions 
  • User Groups: API users can now retrieve up to 100,000 user/security groups per call using
    GET /v1/Repository/{id}/groups?maxPaging=true
  • Long Names: Fixed an issue with GET /v1/Search/{cabGUID} where it would not return the full name of documents if those document names were longer than 500 characters.

Known Issue

  • Require ndClick for Internal Users: Related to the similar issue addressed above, we know of one remaining issue in cabinets which have the "Require ndClick for Internal Users" checkbox enabled. That is, if a user logs into the web without ndClick running, the web UI will scan ports in an attempt to find ndClick. During this scanning period (usually less than a minute) AND if ndClick is not actually running at all, users can perform functions that would otherwise be controlled by ndClick (download a document, print, use the Desktop Email Integration, etc.). After the port scan is finished, then it all works as expected. We'll be addressing this in an upcoming web refresh. Most users will never experience this issue. 

 

5 November 2020

 

R22 Web Release

 

Issues Addressed  

  • ndClick: With ndClick 1.4 (in beta), if a user goes to the web application without having ndClick running and their administrator has set the cabinet setting to "Require ndClick for Internal Users" then the user will now be warned that ndClick is not running at the time they log into the web.
  • Workspace name in Home Page hovertip: Fixed an issue where if you had a subfolder on your Home Page and that subfolder was in a workspace, the hovertip on the item would not display the workspace title in the path for that subfolder. 
  • Moving a checked out document: Fixed an issue in certain cases where a user could move a document to another location in ND when it was checked out to another user. Note that even prior to this fix, the item remains checked out properly to the user who checked it out.
  • Navigation pane: Fixed an issue in certain cases where the active cabinet would not automatically be expanded for the user in the navigation pane when navigating around NetDocuments. 
  • ndClick: Fixed an issue where in some cases with high port numbers (60501 and above), users are told that ndClick is not running when it actually is. 
  • Drag and drop to a folder: Fixed an issue where if the user drags an item from their desktop to a folder in ND they see the item get imported properly but the import process would hang on the final page which says "Imported 1 document..." Note: This was added into production code (R22) on 11 November 2020. 

 

22 October 2020

R21 Web Release

 

New Functionality

  • Folder Packs: Folder Packs are now available for administrators to create and apply to workspace templates. Workspaces created from templates which have Folder Packs on them automatically get build out with the folder structure designated by the Folder Packs. See Folder Packs.
  • Keyboard navigation: The nav pane now accepts standard keyboard controls for navigation. This includes: Tab or Shift+Tab to navigate to the next or previous element, respectively; Enter to execute the selected item (e.g. open a folder); and Right or Left arrow keys to expand or collapse a folder, respectively. 

Issues Addressed

  • Closed profile value inheritance: Resolved an issue where a closed profile value was inherited by a document filed into a folder if the folder had a closed profile value on it. Closed profile values are no longer inherited in this case. 
  • Auto-filing with a folder tree: Resolved an issue where if you dragged and dropped a folder into an organizing folder (e.g. one auto-created by Doc Type), the items that were in the folder being dragged were also filed separately into the organizing folder. The documents now stay in the original folder only as it is moved to be a subfolder of the destination folder. 
  • Keyboard navigation: Resolved an issue on the Advanced Search page when navigating using the keyboard between Dynamic Profile Attributes. Previously, the cursor would lose focus inadvertently and now the focus is maintained properly. 
  • Favorites now showing on Home Page: Resolved an issue where certain items would not display on the Home Page even though they had been favorited. These items now display properly on the Home Page. 
  • Workspace List View: Resolved an issue where a user would select the List View on a workspace page and then navigate to the Home Page and back to the workspace and it would revert to the Summary View of the workspace. NetDocuments now maintains your last selected workspace view. 
  • Move items between Collabspaces: Resolved an issue where in certain cases users were not able to move an item from one Collabspace to the other. Users can now move items between Collabspaces properly, provided they have sufficient rights. 
  • Drag and drop to a folder: Fixed an issue where if the user drags an item from their desktop to a folder in ND will see the item get imported properly but the import process would hang on the final page which says "Imported 1 document..." Note: this was a patch made to the R21 refresh on 30 October 2020.
