Hey everyone, the latest release of Alert Central is now available for download!

 

Here's what we've been working on for this release:

 

  • Notification of Alert Central upgrades in your admin AC console and admin weekly report (and support for proxy servers, so your upgrade feed doesn't get interrupted)
  • A slew of improvements to user validation to help those of you with cell phones and improve your expected workflow, including:
    • The option to not automatically send the self-validation email on import
    • The ability for an admin to see whether a user's address is self-validated from the users grid, not just from alerts themselves
    • The ability for an admin to re-send the self-validation email
    • The ability for an admin to manually validate an email address directly
    • Issues with self-validating SMS from Android
  • Support for Exchange Web Services to receive email from Exchange directly, not just via IMAP/POP
  • A bunch of bug fixes for issues reported here on Thwack, including:
    • Buttons appearing wonky when viewing alerts in gmail
    • Notes being truncated to 60 characters and some general misbehavior with longer text
    • Increased session timeout from 10 to 60 minutes
    • Some issues with creating recurring calendar entries

 

Whew!
