Release Focus

Beta Features Now Available

A number of Beta Features have been enabled for all systems, which can be enabled by system admins. These features include:

Asynchronous Reports

A new beta feature has been introduced to improve the performance when downloading large reports!  This framework allows reports to be run asynchronously, so that the user may navigate to other pages while the report is created in the background.

  • This also allows the user to access older reports that have already been generated. The following reports have been updated:
    • Enterprise Exports: WebStorms, Ideas, Users, Login History
    • WebStorm Exports: Ideas, Users
  • When downloading an 'async' report:
    • Select the desired report, and any related options
    • The report will display as generating while it is being created
    • Once complete, the report will show that it is ready to be downloaded in the Generated Reports section
    • An email notification will be sent to the user who requested the report
      • NOTE: Only the user who requested the report can download the report
  • Please contact your Brightidea representative to enable 'async' reports.
  • All remaining reports are planned to be updated to run asynchronously in future releases.  Stay tuned! :)
