Saturday, June 15, 2013 08:00 to 14:00 CDT (GMT-05:00)

In our efforts to continually enhance the functionality and value of our WAM!NET® Services, we will be performing scheduled maintenance on:

  • Date: Saturday, June 15, 2013
  • Start Time: 08:00 CDT (GMT-05:00)
  • Duration: 6 hours

New Features and Updates:

  • Invite File Sharing with Send-to-Me URLs
      WAM!NET is making it very easy for others to share files with you using the new Send-to-Me feature. Simply create a Send-to-Me URL on the Share Files tab in the WAM!NET Portal and distribute it. You can paste the URL into emails or post on a site instructing readers to click the link to share files with you. They will simply select or drag & drop files to share and you will receive them in an eFolio. It’s that easy.
      This new Send-to-Me feature will automatically be available to users that are permissioned to create eFolios on the Share Files tab following the release. If you are not using eFolios to share files yet, please discuss with your administrator and have them contact us to turn on file sharing without requiring changes to your existing subscription.
  • Resuming Support for Mac OSX 10.6
      WAM!NET Portal, TDX, Submission Icons, TSC, and FTP/FTPS Hot Folders will once again be supported on Mac OSX 10.6 based on your feedback on its continuing popularity. See the updated WAM!NET browser and operating system support matrix for details following this release.

  • Improved Performance of TDX and Submission Icons
      Uploading a set of files to a remote resource will be faster and more reliable under certain network conditions with the enhanced version 3.9.2 of Transmission Director X (TDX) and Submission Icons. This new version of TDX will be available on Software Downloads in the WAM!NET Portal following the release. Submission Icons will automatically be updated upon their next use following the release.

  • Retirement Notices:
    • The expiration of Transmission Director X (TDX) versions 3.7.x is being extended from the current date of June 12, 2013 to the new date of July 15, 2013 allowing you to upgrade directly to the new version 3.9.2 of TDX.
