Migration Manager Update – Version 8.2.5

 In Uncategorized, Update


A minor update (version 8.2.5) for Migration Manager will soon be released for Beta testers and those who have had Migration Manager recently installed. This minor update will form part of the large update that we currently plan to release to all users in the next week or two.

For existing users who are eager to get hold of the major update and all of the new features such as Auto Mail Capture, Portal, Batch VEVO etc, we are working to get this update released as soon as we can. We have delayed the release in the hope that we will also be able to release the new Students eVisas to everyone as well at the same time. If you haven’t already seen the earlier article on what will be included in the major update, please read it here.

Version 8.2.5 of Migration Manager will see a number of minor fixes:
