This section describes the major new features or enhancements that are included in this release.
System. Field Size Changes
MAILS.RCVREFER has been increased to 150 characters. Across the system, all RECVRDEPT and DEPTNAME fields have been increased to 170 characters in length. See the end of this article for the complete list tables and fields impacted.
System. MSDTC now Optional.
With the release of SendSuite Tracking 12.4, Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC) is optional. SendSuite Admin General Settings now provides a setting (Use Transactions) to toggle MSDTC on and off.
This section contains information about minor changes and corrections. It can include issues raised in previous releases that have been corrected.
System. .NET Framework Support.
SendSuite Tracking now supports .NET Framework 4.6.1. Included in this change is the removal of the .NET Framework from the /clientsetup page. The product installer will now detect and install the required .NET Framework package.
SendSuite Link. Security.
SendSuite Link now references the NewHash field rather than the former MD5-based SmartPass field for authentication.
SmartClient. Help Information.
In the SmartClient, Help>About now returns the installed .NET version.
This section includes items that have been raised via Support and escalated to Development for resolution within this release.
SendSuite Link. .WAR File Deployment.
Resolved an issue whereby the installer failed to properly deploy the .war file.
Smart Client. Weight Value Multiplied.
Resolved an issue that caused a value in the weight field to be multiplied each time the record was saved.
SendSuite Mobile. Routelog.
Corrected a problem that prevented the routelog from being updated while using a Manifest Layout requiring users to duplicate efforts for accurate route tracking.
SendSuite Mobile. Timestamp.
Timestamps for events performed in SendSuite Mobile will now reflect the time in the Tracking Assistant as opposed to the SendSuite Tracking Server time.
Smart Client. Visual Obstruction.
The issue that caused a white box to cover parts of the menu and upper portions of the screen has been resolved.
TAPlus Configuration Utility. Session Termination.
Closing the TAPlus Configuration Utility will now properly terminate the session.
SendSuite Mobile. Auto Generate ID in Routelog.
When Auto Generate ID is enabled in a Manifest Layout, users are unable to generate an ID value in the Routelog Layout. This has been resolved.
Smart Client. RTIME Field in Search.
Corrected a problem that prevented the RTIME field value from being visible in search results, when configured.
Smart Client. Recipient Information.
In the Smart Client view screen, the visible recipient information associated with a record is now retrieved from the MAILS table instead of from the linked RECVRS table.
SendSuite Admin. Mobile Layout Assignment.
The system previously permitted the creation of new User records without requiring a user name (only the ID was required). This created an issue when attempting to assign mobile layouts. User names are now required when creating new User records.
Smart Client. Query Timeout.
Corrected an issue that led to SQL Query timeouts when searching certain fields.
Installer. SQL Script Execution Timeout Extended.
The installer SQL Script Execution Timeout has been extended from 30 to 6000 seconds.
System. Email Condition.
Removed an issue which prevented the email condition from being applied properly.
