Scheduled Maintenance

[Skip over main page content.]

Saturday, April 13, 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 performed scheduled maintenance on:

  • Date: Saturday, April 13, 2013
  • Start Time: 08:00 CDT (GMT-05:00)
  • Duration: 6 hours

Purpose

  • One Step File Sharing
      Sharing files using WAM!NET is now easier than ever before. A “New eFolio” function on the Share Files tab in the WAM!NET Portal allows permissioned users to upload and share files via eFolio in one step from one page. Administrators have control over which libraries can be accessed via the “New eFolio” function. more »
  • Easier Onboarding of New Users
      Administrators are now able to invite new users to self-register with WAM!NET instead of having to create each user account individually. A new “Invite” function on the Administration tab in the WAM!NET Portal provides a simple wizard process to paste a list of email addresses to be invited, define a single set of permissions for the set of users, and send each of them an invitation email. The invitation email includes a link for the invited user to activate their user account.

  • Faster File Upload Experience
      Selecting and uploading a set of files using the WAM!NET Portal is now faster and will not require any browser plug-ins. First, you simply invoke a browse button once to navigate through your file system folders and select multiple files at once instead of browsing for each file independently. Secondly, we have further accelerated the upload of your chosen set of files. Drag-and-drop file selection is also supported on some browsers.

  • Additional Enhancements:
    • New Transmission Director X version 3.9 is available on Software Downloads in the WAM!NET Portal. This new version includes the ability to filter the Address Book on Resource Name and is supported on Windows 8.
    • The WAM!NET Portal supports extended email address formats, like Outlook, when creating eFolios and inviting users to self-register. A semicolon must be used as the delimiter between individual addresses when pasting them in extended format.
    • It is now easier to set eFolio expiration dates by selecting an actual date/time with the aid of a calendar tool.

  • Retirement Notices:
    • The expiration warning now appears when launching TDX version 3.7 following this release. The retirement date will be June 12, 2013.

Availability of Services during Maintenance

  • Within the 6 hour maintenance period, all Direct! and Direct!IP file transfer appliances were offline for up to thirty (30) minutes for software maintenance updates. Any packages currently shipping restarted after the upgrade.
  • All WAM!NET Central Services were unavailable during this window.
  • File transfer appliances were able to send files to other file transfer appliances, however package tracking and notifications were unavailable during this time.
