V2.3 Release Notes – Revit 2018 Support & More!

The UNIFI Team has been hard at work to release a new version of our content management solution that’s compatible with Revit 2018 and over 60 new features and bug fixes! We call it v2.3, but we know you are most interested in what’s included – here are a few highlights:

New Features/Enhancements:

  • Support for Revit 2018 as well as previous Revit versions.
  • Batch Insert from Search – You can now insert multiple items into a family by multi-selecting (via shift-click or control-click) from the search results page, right clicking and selecting Batch Insert from the context menu.
  • Insert into Families, not just Projects – we now allow you to insert a family from UNIFI into another RFA.
  • Open Families into the Family Editor – we’re hoping to cut down some steps when editing a family by allowing users to click an Edit button in the file details that will open a family directly in the Family Editor of Revit.
  • Pending Batch Upload Details – We’ve added a little bit more detail to the pending batch upload screen. Thank to Kristina for the suggestion!
  • Inserting Type Catalogs – Added more horsepower behind inserting type catalogs. You should notice a difference when inserting type catalogs of significant size.

Bug Fixes:

  • Bubble burst – In some cases, there was a little bubble shown when hovering over a preview image. Thanks Kenny for pointing that out!
  • Details – We’ve had issues where type catalogs with thousands of types created a poor user experience. As a short term solution, we’ve decided to show a max of 40 types in the file details page.
  • Warning messages – There have been some cases where type catalogs have been dropped from a RFA when uploading a new revision of the RFA and the txt file is not included. We now warn you before uploading to make sure this change is intended.
  • Catalog viewer – Previously when there are existing types in the project that weren’t inserted from UNIFI, we weren’t showing that in our type catalog viewer. We’ve fixed our type catalog viewer to now show those types.
  • Overwriting preview images – Previously when a custom preview image was set for a file and a revision was made, the custom preview image would be overwritten by the revision’s preview image. We’ve fixed it so the custom preview image remains even after a new revision is made.
  • Inserting type catalogs – Added more horsepower behind inserting type catalogs. You should notice a difference when inserting type catalogs of significant size.

Known Issues:

  • Revit 2018 steals focus when using UNIFI 2.0.4 – so be sure to upgrade!

Remember, when you upgrade – you gain access to all of these features above plus high quality manufacturing content via UNIFI Connect which is available in the Subscriptions area of the app.unifilabs.com.  We created a short video to walk you through how easy it is to get this content into your libraries.

Release Notes

V2.2 Release Notes

The UNIFI Team is more than ecstatic to release 2.2! This was a jam-packed version filled with over 120 new features and bug fixes. Here are some of the big ticket items:

New Features/Enhancements:

  • UNIFI Connect – We are very excited to introduce a brand new product, UNIFI Connect, which is included as part of the UNIFI platform at no charge. UNIFI Connect provides access to high quality manufacturer content leveraging the proven workflow of the UNIFI platform. Manufacturers host their content in UNIFI as channels and UNIFI users subscribe to them making the content available to the entire organization for search and insert into models. Click here to listen to the webinar and read more about Connect on our website.
  • Office Locations – Company admins can now create Office Locations in our UNIFI Portal and set users to those locations.
  • Schedules in Batch Tag Manager – Schedules are now visible in the Batch Tag Manager in the UNIFI Portal.
  • Structural Icons in Saved Search – We’ve added a set of structural icons in our Saved Search in the UNIFI Client.

  • Batch User Import – Company admins now have the ability to specify security groups when batch importing users from excel/csv in the UNIFI Client.

Bug Fixes:

Our team continues to squish those pesky bugs. Here are some notable mentions:

  • Library Admin Filter [UP-181] – The library admin filter is now correctly filtering the users list in the UNIFI Portal. Thanks Tammy for pointing this out to us!
  • User Details Delete Button [UP-404] – We made the delete button on the user’s detail page of the UNIFI Portal actually delete the specified user.
  • Accents on letters mess w/SSO [ULA-215] – Fixed an interesting issue where having accents in your username caused issues when logging into SSO.
  • Double clicking when inserting [UC-517] – For all the fast clickers out there, we found an issue where if double clicking to insert a file from the file details page would can an error. We’re happy to have resolved that issue!
  • Downloading type catalogs from Browse/Search [UC-500] – We are now including the txt file when downloading a type catalog from browse or search.

As always, if you have questions – please don’t hesitate to contact us.  We look forward to delivering many new exciting features in upcoming releases, including….drumroll please….Multi-format Support in Q2!

Release Notes

V2.1 Release Notes

A post-script – at the front of this release note…2.1 is now generally available as of 1/6/2017.

We are excited to announce the availability of new features in UNIFI through our 2.1 release!  The new release is being rolled out in phases, with customers who deploy manually receiving it first.  Within the next week or two, we’ll then deploy 2.1 to all users who have used the ‘Per User’ installer.

New Features/Enhancements:

  • Schedules – UNIFI now supports Quantity and Key schedules.  This capability compliments an existing support for system family types, drafting views, and of course families.  All of these are stored as individual elements – allowing rapid retrieval of specific things you need without having to open and wade through old Revit projects.  UNIFI also offers a preview of the schedule itself without having to use Revit!  Go here for more info
  • New Sort Types – Date Created and Date Modified have been added to the UNIFI Filter Menu and in the online Batch Tag Manager
  • Cloud Parsing Status – The details page for any element will now display a variety of ‘cloud parsing status’ messages – Instead of a generic ‘Pending’ label, you will now see where the file is at in the process, particularly if the file has stalled due to an issue with the file itself.
  • Fulfill Content Requests with Project Content – You can now fulfill content requests with Revit project elements (schedules, groups, etc.). This is done by having the request open in UNIFI, then using the Export option from the Revit Add-in.

*We fixed 11 minor bugs.  Other underlining improvements were made to improve performance and accuracy of your searches.

Known Issues:

  • US-780, US-794, US-767, US-599 – Several other add-ins have known issues when installed together with UNIFI.   These add ins include: Dyno, Enscape, Archicad Add-In.  We are attempting to work with the developers of these tools to correct areas of add-in conflict.
  • US-662 – One user has reported that a type catalog is appearing empty, despite it working properly without UNIFI
  • US-962 – We are investigating an issue where a user was unable to insert Curtain Wall Types whose panels utilize nested families.
  • US-566 – A user has reported that when returning to a search result, some of the entered search terms are not present any longer, particularly when using explicit tags and other terms.

We continue to work hard on yet more features that will add further value to your company!  Take a peek at our announcement of upcoming availability of Manufacturer content – directly within UNIFI.  Whether these libraries appear to your users, will of course depend on how you configure user permissions! Click here for more info!

  • [UD-268] Users were unable to set an element as favorite if the element was part of a shared library.
  • [UD-350] Minimizing the Batch Export dialog caused it to disappear, locking users out of the Revit session. Removed topmost behavior to all applications, it now appears in the taskbar and minimize and maximize buttons have been removed.

Release Notes

V1.7 RELEASE NOTES

Updated: 1.7.0.2 released 10/7/15 (bug fixes below)

We are very happy to announce the release of Unifi v1.7. Highlighted in this release is the rollout of new cloud infrastructure across the Amazon AWS backbone including a completely new search engine! This new search engine project (codenamed Dewey) is all about enhancing the user experience with faster browse and searching speeds on a global scale. The Unifi team has invested heavily into a new search engine technology which is extremely scalable and reliable, two major factors we take very seriously for the Unifi product. Our ultimate goal is to provide you with an enjoyable experience when finding content for use in Revit projects!

Library Browsing v1.7

Library Browsing v1.7 now shows total amount of categories available

What does this mean for your designers?

  • Our internal metrics show that current Unifi search times average 2 – 8 seconds globally depending on the size and complexity of the search. The new search engine testing metrics show global search times that average .5 seconds regardless of the size or complexity of the search.
  • A new “Search information bar” has been added to the top of the search and browse screens which displays how many results are being returned. This bar will also tell the user if any content is being hidden due to a incompatible Revit year among several other informative notes. You will notice the information bar also appears while browsing letting you know how many libraries or family categories are being displayed in the UI.
  • The new enhanced search engine now shows reduced results the more words you add to the search bar making it easier than ever to quickly refine your search to exactly the type of content you are searching for.
    This is something the majority of our users have been asking for so you got it! Your searching will be even more intuitive then ever with the intent on getting you to the right piece of content faster than ever.
Screw Chillers search example v1.7

Screw Chillers search example v1.7

New Features:

  • New Amazon cloud servers added to global cluster making international search times quicker (More improvements in this area are coming soon!)
  • New Elastic search engine added (More improvements in this area are coming soon!…can you say integrated parameter searching!)
  • Hidden results will now be displayed in the Search Information bar, users can click a link to see all incompatible Revit families
  • URLs in Family parameters will now be hyperlinks within the Unifi File Details page. (thanks Ji-Yong)
  • Library Admins can no longer delete libraries (thanks Fergus)
  • Changed the way the Favorite icon works. The favorite (heart) icon will now toggle your favorites filter to quickly see only the items you have favorited in the current results screen.
  • Any incompatible (future Revit version) families are now displayed greyed out and are unable to be inserted by the user.
  • Added several stability enhancements

Exterminated Bugs:

  • Resolved a bug where certain files could not be uploaded do to inaccurate file header data within the RFA file
  • Fixed some wonky text that would display in some system family names
  • Fixed a bug in the content request screen where when the ‘Specific Standards’ option is selected, but no text is entered into the textbox Unifi would get angry (thanks Fergus)
  • Resolved a bug where in some cases opening a PDF from a content request would crash Unifi
  • Resolved a bug where certain formatted type catalogs would not insert correctly (thanks Blake)
  • Fixed some labels in the Content request screen that were confusing
  • Fixed a bug where some file details would appear blank if not parsed yet in the Unifi cloud. If a family is still being parsed on the cloud you will now see a “In Progress” message indicating that the cloud is still busy herding the kittens (thanks Jason)
  • Fixed a bug with rolling back a file to a previous revision
  • Fixed a bug where when a pending file was deleted, it would still show in the Batch Upload Review screen
  • Resolved a timeout issue when if a User does not use Unifi for 30 minutes Unifi would release the licenses and the app would not log the user out. (thanks Blake)
  • Resolved a bug where certain fill pattern parameters values where not being displayed correctly in the file details page

Known Bugs: We will be working quickly to resolve these known issues in v1.7. 

  • Queuing large batches of files for upload (2500+) is taking several minutes as the files are checked on the servers to see if they already exist first. We fully intend to make this wicked fast, but right now its not.
  • Sorting by Star Rating is not working properly in the filter dialog. Fixed v1.7.0.1
  • The “TC” icon shown overtop of the preview image, when in the file details page, is not aligned properly. Fixed v8
  • The “TC” icon is not shown in the search results view, both in Grid mode or Row mode Fixed v1.7.0.1
  • New user activation emails may take up to 24 hours for the recipient to receive it. We are working with our 3rd party mail system to get this back to instantly send upon user creation. Fixed v8
  • If an Admin rolls back to a previous revision of a file, the parameter values do not update in the File Details page to show the current versions parameter data values.
  • On very large searches, while results are still loading and the user opens up a file details page, the information can take up to 10-15 seconds to populate. This is not acceptable to the instant gratification generation and will be fixed. Fixed v1.7.0.1 instant gratification achieved!
  • The “delete” button on a new saved search has been changed to “Cancel”, you can’t delete something that doesn’t exist. Fixed v1.7.0.2
  • Newly uploaded content may be shown as a revision to previously deleted content with the same name. This is a case of content identity theft, and has been resolved. Fixed v1.7.0.2
  • Automatically adding users to user groups was not working in some cases. Fixed v1.7.0.2
  • File underscores are not being removed from the content display name causing problems with finding the content while searching. (Thanks Ryan!) Fixed v1.7.0.2
  • Uploaded and approved content was sometimes not available in the search engine. Fixed v1.7.0.2

We truly hope you enjoy this release. Thank you to all our great customers who share our vision of organizing, analyzing, and distributing the worlds BIM data!!

The Unifi team is already working on the next 1.8 release which will include new highly requested workflow features! Stay tuned for more update news soon!

Cheers

V1.6.1 RELEASE NOTES

Hot on the tails of our V1.6 release comes this smaller release.  If you haven’t noticed, we like releasing smaller features and fixes on the tails of larger releases.  Sometimes we just can’t help but sneak in some features in that have been highly requested. Some of these shouldn’t be held up by the rigamarole of larger releases. Here’s what’s new:

New Added Features/Enhancements:

  • Search Results in ‘Row’ mode now show more results due to a more condensed layout.
  • Tags can now be applied to multiple selected items in a single operation. Right click on your selection, choose ‘Add a tag’.

Exterminated Bugs:

  • Attaching a folder to a content request no longer crashes the Unifi client.
  • Inconsistent behavior with the tag auto-complete menu has been resolved.
  • ‘Capture Image’ from the details page of an element wasn’t showing the updated capture until the page was refreshed.  This has been fixed.
  • Batch Export Dialogue (Revit Add-In):  Inconsistent behavior with the quick filter form was reported. This now works as expected.

We thank you for your continued support and feedback.  More exciting things coming up!
