The content in Barium Live! 2013.1.1 is focused on bringing smaller improvements, bug fixes and stability to the service.


Improvements

1. Share Task has received a minor update to its layout to make it clearer to use. The checkboxes that are used to choose the sharing permissions has been replaced with a drop-down list and moved to the top.


Read more about configuring the task view.




2. A new share option is available in the Share Task dialog that allows users to reassign the current task and all future tasks that belong to the current tasks participant to someone else. This feature must be enabled in the application configuration in order to be available to the process participants.


Reassigning tasks is useful in those cases that you want to let someone else take the role as performer for the current task and all future tasks in the instance if you no longer are best suited for performing tasks in that role.


Reassigning a task is possible to do to one or more groups, users or a combination of both.

3. Completed tasks can now be opened and all the content can be viewed without allowing the user to change any information in the forms or information in the task.



4. Two new columns have been made available to lists


A. Last Activity is a new standard column for Instance Lists which shows the date and time for the latest activity that occured in the instance.


B. Last Instance Activity is a new standard column for Task Lists that shows the date and time for the latest activity that occured in any task for the instance.


As soon as anyone makes any change to items in an instance the Last Activity date is updated as a time stamp of when something has changed.


These 2 columns allows you to create a list that is sorted on Last Activity or Last Instance Activity which will show the latest instance or task that has been updated in the top of the list.


What is an activity? Creating, updating or deleting forms, writing comments, completing tasks, performing actions or sharing the task. Basically anything that is logged in the Activity Log is an activity and will update the Last Activity value.

5. Improved performance in the application configuration view when clicking on “Upgrade” for applications with very many process versions.



6. Action comments have been added to the Activity Log Beta and now show up in the activity log stream if the action comments have been added when running the process application.

7. Improved performance when loading an application configuration view which that contains very many instances.



8. The mobile interface has been updated with improvements for those customers using the Ready-to-Run Service Request application.

Fixed issues

  • Fixed an issue where tasks that have deadlines set to the same day as today would show up as Overdue with a red colour instead of Due Today with an orange color.
  • Fixed an issue where changing the name of a space would not show the new name in the drop-down menu immediately. Now the new name is shown everywhere.
  • Fixed an issue where changing the name of a group in Space Administration would not show the new name of the group immediately. Now the new name is shown everywhere, immediately.
  • Fixed an issue where customers that use SSO do not automatically get logged on when clicking on a link for a task that a user has been invited to via the Share button. SSO now works properly.
