Invotra 3.14 Release Notes

Release Date: 24 May 2017

Official Invotra release documentation for Invotra 3.14, which was released on the 24th May 2017. This release is primarily based around the second phase  of using personas to improve our user experience and addressing some bugs.

3.14 highlights:

  1. Search has had a face lift to make it easier to digest for the end user, also lifted the search results so that more results appear above the fold by removing unnecessary padding / space.

  2. Ability to jump between People, Teams, Content and Location searches directly from the search results page without the need to run a fresh search. This was introduced based on user feedback.

  3. Multiple improvements to Groups including the user journey for adding people to the Group.

  4. Standardisation was a focus for this release and two of the major things we standardised were date formats and the profile teasers across the product.
