Circle Release Notes

Version 4.0.0.8100 (Apr 2, 2017)

  1. Added: Search capabilities in the File>Open page make it easy to find your project.

  2. Added: Delete data source is available from the Data Source page in the Library.

  3. Added: The Project parameter page in the Library allows you to view and customize project-specific parameters. You can see the date and time the project was set to Live. It is a central place for customizing parameters and setting values. Several parameters are relevant when they are used in parameterized scheduling (coming soon).

  4. Improved: The Project Time Zone value is setup once, in the project parameters page in the library, and is used in all touchpoint scheduling.

  5. Modified: Any project which included different time zones in its scheduling was adjusted and now works with a single time zone.

  6. Modified: The Master List page in the library was renamed. It was previously called Data Source.

  7. Improved: On sign in, your last-used project automatically opens. This provides direct access to your last project.

  8. Improved: Checking the Don’t ask me again checkbox in the ‘Save is required’ message suppresses the message and saves automatically.

  9. Fixed: Sometimes, the table area in Open/Organize or Sample Recipients scrolled very fast and it was difficult to select a row (134440).

  10. Fixed: A Power Builder (Builder with Power user rights) could not create a new project (133618).

  11. Limitation: If a XMPieRecipient key includes characters which have special meaning in a URL  (e.g., + & # / \ % ?) the personalized webpage fails to open (133043).

  12. Known Issue: When the project name includes an apostrophe (‘) adapting the data for web fails (132921).

  13. Known Issue: When the project name includes an ampersand (&) creating an instance fails (134442).

Legacy Technology (1G)

  1. Circle 1G is only available in IE on Windows. All other browsers are no longer supported since the browser support of Silverlight has stopped.

 

Version 3.0.2.6955 (Jan 22, 2017)

  1. Added: The agent now supports a fault-tolerant configuration in PersonalEffect Cross Media version 8.0 or above. An agent is installed on each uProduce server in the fault-tolerant configuration so that the load is distributed, and if one agent fails, the remaining agents are available instead of the failed agent.
  2. Improved: The Circle agent was enhanced to ensure agent configuration persistence even after uninstalling and reinstalling the agent. Each uProduce system now has a one-to-one connection with the Circle agent. This requires that a new agent be installed locally on the uProduce server.
  3. Improved: It is now possible to select up to 200 sample recipients.
  4. Fixed: When deleting a 2G website, the friendly URL is deleted and is available for use, however the website content remained but the preview did not work (132578).
  5. Fixed: Downloading CPKG from the Circle Library did not work on Microsoft Internet Explorer and Chrome browsers (133034).
  6. Known Issue: In the Circle Agent Setting window, if proxy settings are defined, then pressing Test & Save fails and the agent stops working.
    Workaround: For the workaround, please contact support (134302).
  7. Known Issue: If the project name includes a single quote or apostrophe (such as Tom’s campaign), the webpages are blank.
    Workaround: In the web configuration file, search for circleProjectName and change the single quotes to double quotes (“Tom’s campaign”) (134034).
  8. Known Issue: If the agent server was down during the agent upgrade, all projects continue to work, however the agent interface is corrupted.
    Workaround: Uninstall and then re-install the agent (134235).
  9. Known Issue: If more than one agent was connected to a single uProduce server, then after Circle deployment only one agent connection remains active. All projects continue to work without interruption, although the connection is through a different agent (they all refer to the same active agent in the uProduce System name field).
  10. Known Issue: After restarting the server, the agent icon does not appear in the task bar, even though the agent is running.
    Workaround:
    Open the application (e.g., from the Start menu) and the agent icon appears in the task bar (134255).
  11. Known Issue: PDF on Demand generation fails when using a Recipient List which was mapped to the Plan schema. 
    Workaround:
     Avoid using the mapping by renaming the columns in the Recipient List as per the schema in the Plan File (133933).
  12. Limitation: PersonalEffect Cross Media below version 7.0 is no longer supported in Circle.
