Migration Manager Software Update for Beta Testers

An update for Beta testers of Migration Manager has just been released (v8.3.9)

A big shout out and thank you to all of our Beta Testers who have provided good, constructive feedback arising from their testing of our most recent update. The information these testers have provided has helped us refine features, fix issues, solve problems and ultimately push Migration Manager forward for the benefit of everyone who uses the program. And a particular big thank you to those Beta Testers who worked closely with our support and development teams to problem solve issues particular to their type of set-ups. As you would be aware, there are a multitude of variations to the way people set-up and run their computer systems, which makes it very difficult for the development and release teams to program and test for all possible permutations, and as such, their testing, feedback and patience as our teams work through the issues you have identified is greatly appreciated. This update should address a number of the issues raised during that testing.

For our non-Beta Testers, all going well, we aim to release this update to everyone in the near future, but as always, if the Beta Testing picks up a major issue, we may need to do another round of Beta testing to address those issues before the general release.

Further Beta Feedback

We encourage all of our Beta Testers to run this update as soon as possible and let us know your constructive feedback via our new BETA Tester Feedback function.

What is in the Update: Change Log – Version 8.3.79

  • Accounts
    • Fixed an issue in the training version where Accounts reports were not generating for some users.
  • Client Detail & Documents
    • Modified the behaviour of linking/nominating 407 matters in a business sponsor. It is now listed as a nomination and not a link.
    • Fixed an issue where changing the marital status of a spouse within the relations tab was not always saving.
  • Documents
    • Major speed improvements made to new documents tab to increase loading speed for mattes with thousands of documents.
      • Added a user preference to set the documents tab to default to either flat or tree view. For instructions on how to set this see: Documents Tab User Preferences
    • Significant speed increase made to the Email To window when opened from the Documents tab.
    • Added a keyboard shortcut for Search. Clicking Ctrl + F will now take you straight to the search window and set focus on the search field so that you can just start typing. This is the same user behaviour as you find in Word, Chrome etc.

    • Fixed a bug affecting the Clear Search button.
  • Emails
    • You can now type an email address directly in to the Email To window (just remember to have the ; symbol at the end for it to commit).
    • Modifed the Email To window to now close when you click ‘Create Email’.
    • Clicking Email To no longer refreshes the Documents tab (should increase speed significantly)
    • Fixed an issue where the business sponsor’s email address was not showing when opening the Email To window in a Sponsor file.
    • Fixed an issue which resulted in the new Email window opening slowly if the documents tab contained thousands of documents.
  • Preferences
