App Feature Release 4.0.0, aka 3.10.0 (June 24 2016) – “Volume Processing II”

This is a major release with over 170 individual tickets. The overall theme of the release is to enable multi-action events, provide ease of use, and improve performance both from a system and business process standpoint.

This release introduces new multi-selection drag-and-drop functionality to the Publish tab for all users. Users are able to create ‘Content’ and ‘Member’ tags to organize content for sharing and publishing. The ‘Create’ tab functionality has been merged into Publish for most users. This change enables users to create, manage, and publish content from a single location. Users can now tag content and perform mass actions using these tags – e.g. create a tag called ‘ABC Playlist’ and drag this to members tagged with ‘ABC’. The Share tab has been renamed as Community. The Community UI has been revamped to mirror the Publish UI. Community content and members are all viewable from a single location and can be searched on via advanced search functionality.

Many performance issues addressed, including faster query response times and application login time reduction of 30%. In addition, a request queuing system was introduced. The queuing system optimizes user queries and large batch jobs against available system resources to prevent resource conflicts and reduce user wait times.
