The updated Mitigation Utility package (Critical Security Update Log4j Remediation Tool_Update1.zip) now contains additional steps that must be performed on your Web server(s). Please download this updated package from the Synergis Software Customer Portal. The instructions are updated (beginning on page 6), and the new ZIP file includes version-specific DLLs you will use to apply the additional steps required on your web servers. Again, you must perform these further mitigation steps to remediate Log4J vulnerabilities on your network whether your Adept environment(s) have licensed Adept Web clients or not.

1. 95% of the time in Adept is spent in either the Work Area or Search Results windows. In 2014, we would launch Adept, open the Work Area and Search Results windows, then tile them. This is how the client would remain for nearly the entire time of use.
2. With the windows tiled, there was fewer mouse clicks and far less real estate to cover with the mouse. In 2014 you could toggle between Search Results and Work Area windows in addition to selecting specific files or Work Areas with one mouse click and while staying in roughly the center of the screen. Now toggling between windows, files, or Work Areas requires the user to navigate to the top or bottom of the screen in addition to more mouse clicks.
3. Our Workflow is relatively simple in that one Engineering user performs all Workflow actions (ie Sign In, Sign Out, Approve, etc...). In 2014, we would Check In files from a Work Area. The Search Results window (which would already be shown and tiled) would automatically switch to our Inbox and automatically populate with the checked in files. We could then quickly approve them. In 2017, we now have to navigate to our Inbox (by going to the top or bottom banner) after Checking In files, Click Inbox on the left tree, then approve.
I know there was mention of re-instituting this feature in coming releases and that is great news. Is there any hope of seeing this released in a 2017 service pack? or hotfix of some sort? If not, we will have to wait 2+ years (given our upgrade schedule) before we can utilize this great feature again.
Currently, If I have a document which is Out, and decide to "Undo" the checkout, I can "Undo checkout" and restore the document as if it were never checked out.
If I were to check the document in, but then discover there was an error where the document should never have been checked in, and I want to revert to a previous version and make the one just checked in go away, how would I "Roll back" the document? I don't currently see a way to accomplish this. I could copy out the actual correct version and then assume checkout and check in, but that then gives 2 copies of the good document sandwiching a bad file.
Could we have a feature which may allow us to delete the latest version and promote the previous version (or perhaps a selected earlier version) to the current In document?
Recently I was contacted by a power user with a problem. He has a project group which needs to see which documents are currently checked out to members of the project team, so that they can understand current work load and balance resources.
We solved the problem by searching for documents which were currently out, checked out by members of the team. We searched on the member's name, and sequentially used the Append results to previous Search results. We built a Complex Search to include all members. When the search was complete we saved the search.
But wait, There's More!
The user was happy with the result, but wanted to know in the future, if a member leaves the group, how could they edit that result to remove that member? Well, I couldn't find a method to exactly edit the search, but we did see that we could execute the search, then perform a search with a "^" Carat in front of the user to be removed, (meaning does not contain) and execute that search WITHIN the previous search results. This could then be saved and shared.
Obviously at some point, it may be necessary to create a new search as the complex search get's more unwieldy.
Creating complex searches, saving them, and sharing can be a time saver, and at least in this case, met the user's needs and improved productivity!
