This document outlines the new features, improvements, bug fixes and other tasks included in this admation release.
The focus of this release was to improve the overall system from the backend to help make the system even more reliable. We also worked to add a little more automation to a few places.
AD-1911 Improve Search Operators on Project, Ad Storage and Asset Library lists
We have improved the search operators for the Projects, Ad Storage and Asset Library lists. Now you will be able to;
search for multiple job IDs by separating them with a space (eg 12345 21543)
search for items that include many specific words (eg +apple +banana would find jobs that contain both the words apple and banana)
search for items that do not include a word (eg -apple would find jobs that do not contain the word apple)
- and combinations (eg +apple -banana would find jobs that contain the word apple but not banana
We also fixed an issue where keywords were not being searched efficiently.
AD-2152 Agency Job Number > Add an automated sequential number
We have now added the ability for organisations to specify a sequential Agency Job Number to their jobs automatically.
Job Numbers can be formatted with some text at the front (eg if your organisation was called Automaton, you might want to format your job numbers like this; AUT00001) and we can nominate a starting job number (eg you might start at 1500).
When a new project is created, it will automatically be allocated the next sequential number (eg AUT01501).
If you would like this to be configured for your organisation, please contact your Client Success Manager and they will be able to assist you.
AD-2009 Full Screen Approval View > Receiving Feedback on a Forwarded Request > Automatically open the Forwards tab when accessing the page
As a new user, if you have received an approval request and forwarded it out to other recipients, you’ll know that it is a little tricky to locate the feedback you receive from the people you forwarded the request to.
Now, if you have received feedback from at least one person you forwarded the request to, going to the Full Screen Approval view will automatically show you any feedback you have received.
AD-2010 Full Screen Approval View > When you collate feedback, automatically move back to the Approval Info tab
As described above, if you have received an approval request, forwarded it out to other recipients and have now received feedback, you will now be taken directly to the Forwards tab when you enter the Full Screen Approval view. If you then Collate feedback, you will automatically be taken back to the Approval Info tab in this screen.
Resource Management is a separate module of admation. If you would like to find out more about it, please contact your admation liaison and they will be able to assist.
AD-1528 Single Day View > Change to Gantt style
Previously, as a user who oversees a group of people (such as a studio manager), looking at the task timeline for a single day showed a list of “cards” that were assigned to each user.
We have now changed this so that the day view is displayed in the same way as the week, fortnight and month views, just with the tasks that are being worked on today.
We have also added a new checkbox which allows users to see how much time has been logged against each task.
AD-2142 Online Briefs > Create Revision > If there is a default value in a field, any entered content is replaced with the default value
Fixed a bug in text fields where, if there was some default text specified and you created a new revision, any text that had been manually entered previously was replaced by the default text.
AD-2203 Online Briefs > Hidden mandatory fields preventing briefs from being completed
Fixed a bug that prevented a brief from being submitted/completed if there were mandatory fields that were hidden until some selection was made in the form.
AD-2161 Online Briefs > Text Field Validation > Custom message not showing
Text fields within a form can have a custom validation message shown if the user doesn’t fill them in correctly/at all. This custom message was not being shown if we were validating the number of characters in the text.
