Release notes

Invotra 4.36

Release date: 17th July 2019

We have released a total of 34 tasks including improvements, 12 fixes, incidents and internal tasks.

Release components

Portal project

We have enhanced the capabilities of our Portal functionality so that webmasters can now control:

  • What apps external users should have access to such as Groups, Message Wall, Ideas and Queries.

  • Whether or not external users can access the people, teams or locations directories.

  • What pages external users have access to.

In addition, we have updated the team members page so that adding team members is done through a modal instead of input and going directly into the table. We have also added a task which ensures that users who have had “edit” permission removed do not have access to the workflow.

The relevant tasks for this release are:
