Changes and Updates

⏳ Effective for demo sites on 2022-04-07, then on live sites on 2022-04-15 ⏳

LS-82216: Using the Discovery block, but don't want your kids emailing notes as part of that process? You are sure to enjoy unchecking the block's new "Allow Sending Discovery Note as Email" option.

LS-85102: Offline aficionados will be pleased to see their custom fields of type "time" now work in their intakes when in offline mode.

LS-85436: Accessibility Initiative: Field names in groups of checkboxes or radios are no longer ignored by screen readers.

⭐ LS-84751: The system Emergency field is now included in etransfers, is an available column in the Case/Matter - Electronic Case Transfers, Received list view, and appears on pending case transfer profiles. (Funded by Brooklyn Legal Services Corporation A, and viewers like you).

LS-86266: Are you an API Maven? Interested in an External UUID/ID field in User APIs? Be sure to check out the nice API Changelog.

LS-86495: Using Activity Presets? Want your preset to offer, but not require, an Event? Disheartened when unchecking the "Mandatory" checkbox didn't do what you hoped? Take heart.

LS-87313: "Restrict Search Results to User's Office" (on the Search tab of the Admin > Top Level Navigation Bar/Search page) wasn't doing everything it should. Now it will.

LS-87351: Excited about the Activity Preset note above? You may also be excited to learn that you can set a default Office and Program in your activity preset Events. Take advantage, because events really like having an office and program set.

LS-87354: Transferring custom fields from one site to another could result in an error under specific conditions. Rare, but painful nonetheless. This ticket changes "rare" to "never".

LS-87363: The Electronic Case Transfer Settings admin page sees a return of the Incoming and Outgoing Summary Fields section. You will welcome its return if you've got unwanted "Hidden by settings" things on the pending case transfer profile page.

LS-87452: When deciding which profile view to use to display a case, ignore a user default if it is now inactive.

LS-87473: The "Previous Month" date preset in reports got confused about which month was previous. Fix pushed out to all sites on 2022-03-31 at 17:26 UTC.

LS-87493, et al.: Multilingual sites can now translate values in the following lookups: Assignment Types, Case Status, Case Type, Intake Type, and Service Type. That should keep you busy for a while.

LS-87600: The Current Assignments list view that powers most home pages (colloquially: the My Assignments tab) now has Date Opened available as a column to display. Configure it as such if your folks desire to see that datum for each case.

LS-87636: Callback list views not exporting to Excel or CSV, but throwing an error, deemed unhelpful. Fix applied to all sites on 2022-04-01 at 14:03 UTC.

LS-87639: Panic buttons were hit last Friday as lists were breaking names and other words mid-name/word onto another line. Emergency measures taken. Calm restored.

These nice folks have been making a difference for nearly 100 years (yes, Virginia, one hundred). We're happy to have been part of that for ~15% of that time (April 2007 if you want to be precise-ish).
