Recent update roundup

We have had a number of product updates released and automatically installed to the product so far this year and wanted to put out a quick note to make sure everyone knows about the new functionality.

  • Search capability in the Organizer

  • Support for using multiple criteria in AutoFile

  • MessageContext:
    • add ability to delete message and complete tasks
    • improvements to load performance
    • adjust UI layout for better space efficiency

  • Add Next Action to QuickTasks
  • MYN support and integration
  • Multi monitor improvements
  • Duplicate Followup detection
  • Manual product update check and option for beta/fast updates (as described in our last post)
  • Many other bug fixes and tweaks

If you don’t see every item here reflected in your installation, it is most likely en route to your computer and will show up shortly. You can also force an immediate update by going to the ClearContext About screen and clicking the Check for Update link. We have another update in the queue to be released soon, and beyond that we may lengthen the release interval slightly to work on some larger feature updates.

ClearContext Automatic Updates

One of the great improvements in the new ClearContext is the automatic product update process. Users don’t need to worry about checking what the current product version is, and tracking down, installing and possibly having to purchase a new version. This also helps us by streamlining the release process and making it possible to provide more updates more often.

For the most part, obtaining updates don’t require any attention. Once an update has been applied the product, a notification will usually be inserted into the Inbox noting the changes and improvements applied. The appearance of this notification is how one can know that the product has been updated.

For those who want updates as soon as possible and are willing to deal with some occasional rough edges, there is an option available for “Beta/Fast Product Updates” in the ClearContext Account screen in Outlook. When enabled, general updates will be delivered a week or two before everyone else. Also, when beta features are available, they will only be delivered to those who have selected this option.

Stay tuned, as we have a lot of great updates planned for the year!

New Help Portal

Just a quick note to let folks know about our new help portal: help.clearcontext.com. We have improved the knowledge base with updated information and easier search functionality. Support can also be contacted directly from the help portal as well. If you are having technical issues, we recommend using the link in the ClearContext->Help screen in the product, as that will include some diagnostic information that will aid in assisting you.
