    Admin improvements from EPDM 2013 to 2015?

    Gary Williams

      We are considering upgrading to EPDM 2015, we are now running 2013.

       

      What Admin improvements have been made since 2013?

      There were many anoying things that wasted a lot of time, here are some examples...

      - Length of variable dropdown box was too short and cut off the full variable name if longer than a certain number of characters.

      - Double click on USER and admin software would lock up.

      - Parllalel transitions would only allow the last approver to  be assigned to variables.

      - Cannot send e-mail to a variable, only group, or user.

      - Copy a transition from one workflow to another workflow and the modified workflow will not save, losing all changes since last save!!

      - Windows7 Explorer is unstable on machines with an EPDM2013 vault view installed --> just stops working without warning, need to exit vault view and then log-in again.

          Hey Gary,

           

          Here's a couple right off:

           

          - Double click on USER and admin software would lock up.

          Never saw that before in 2013, but I'm fairly certain that doesn't happen in 2015

          - Parllalel transitions would only allow the last approver to  be assigned to variables.

          Added as a new feature in 2015

          - Cannot send e-mail to a variable, only group, or user.

          Custom add-ins can enable this feature, my company offers one: HawkWare - Professional | Get Prices and Download Today

          - Windows7 Explorer is unstable on machines with an EPDM2013 vault view installed --> just stops working without warning, need to exit vault view and then log-in again.

          I saw issues with this in 2012 but not 2013, I'd say it doesn't appear to be much of a problem anymore
