Brightidea Product Release Notes – August 21st 2013

In the past several weeks we have made a number of enhancements and bug fixes. These changes will take effect on Wednesday, August 21st, 2013, 8:30PM EST.

Please note that some of these features are beta options that must be turned on by your Brightidea representative. We have thoroughly tested these new enhancements and fixes to ensure high quality before allowing them into production. 

If you have received these release notes via email, this post may be truncated. To read complete documentation, please visit the Product Release Notes forum in the Brightidea Support Portal.


Release Focus

Resend Newsletter

A new BETA feature has been added that allows System Administrators to resend newsletters!



  • The recipients of the newsletter will be based on which users have been invited but not registered for a specific WebStorm. For example, if you have sent a WebStorm Registration Invite to a group of users and wish to resent an invite newsletter, the newsletter will only be sent to users who have not completed registration for that WebStorm. To resend a newsletter:
    • Navigate to Enterprise -> Setup -> Newsletters
    • Select a newsletter to resend and click "Resend"
    • In the popup, select which WebStorm the newsletter should check for registration
    • The popup will display the number of users it will resend the newsletter to, as well as a downloadable Excel list for a detailed view of the unregistered users
