fbpx Update Released

Image Release

There are lots of big changes to report for this “minor” release, especially in KeyReporter. For example, lab schedules (Time Sets) can now be created and managed within the KeyReporter interface, and time sets can also be created and applied to reports in the report builder as well. An Options panel has been added to the report builder page, providing access on the web to various report options that were previously only accessible in KeyConfigure. Additionally, admins can now export chart-based widgets in either a PNG or SVG file format, and support for rearranging dashboard tabs, “locking” dashboard widget locations, and requiring confirmation before erasing or overwriting dashboards, have also been added.

Lab Time Sets

In KeyConfigure, the Manage Scripts dialog now includes a list of javascript “plugins” available for direct download, so you’ll no longer have to go to our website to find and install them. Sassafras also includes many additional bug fixes and enhancements. A complete list of changes can be found here. Highlights include:

We have also identified the potential for odd Windows behavior when running local installations of installers on some computers. Sometimes the following message appears upon launching the installer: Windows Defender SmartScreen prevented and unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk.

Windows dialog

This dialog is the result of the new certificate we obtained for signing our installers. More information about this can be found here. If you see the above warning, simply click the “More info” link and select “Run anyway.”
