This Web UI release features a universal date format throughout the UI and updates to Tasks.
Universal Date Format in Web UI
The new date format in the UI accommodates international users as it is now a spelled out month (e.g. Oct. 9, 2017) instead of the original MM/DD/YYYY. This change is implemented in features across the UI including the Activity Stream, Versions Dialog, and Trash.
For example, the version history of a file now has the below “Date modified” format.
Self-Notifications for Tasks
Need a reminder to complete your task? Assign a task to yourself and you will receive both an in-app and email notification.
New Messaging for Invalid Permissions
When a user tries to assign a task to a folder where the assignee does not have permission, a descriptive error message will appear in the task dialog.
- For trial accounts, a file link will be invalidated and no longer accessible if the file type is not allowed for trial domains, including exe and zip.
- Administrators can now utilize up to 20,000 characters each in the Terms of Service and Login Disclaimer messages under Settings → Branding.
- Customers using GCS as an object storage provider now have a dedicated onboarding flow to connect their Egnyte Account with their Google Cloud Storage. For more information, please refer to this article on the Helpdesk.
