Release Notes: UNIFI Core Version 3.2.1 & UNIFI Web Portal Version 2.9.0

Hey UNIFI Customers,

We’re pleased to announce our latest software update was released on March 18, 2019. CORE 3.2.1 updates include content upload email notifications, improved materials and fill patterns support, and several bug fixes.  Portal 2.9.0 includes the frequently requested API access! Please read below for further details.

CORE 3.2.1 Highlights

1. Content Upload Email Notifications:

Overview:

– Library Admins will now receive email notifications when a content upload request is created

– Users who submit upload requests will receive email notifications when the requests are approved or rejected

– Email notification templates for new content requests have been updated

Details:

One of the top requested features on our customer idea portal is content upload email notifications. You asked, and we delivered; library Admins will now receive email notifications when users upload files that require approval. The user who uploaded will also receive email notifications when the upload request has been either approved or rejected. The days of manually notifying admins for upload requests are behind us. 

2. Materials and Fill Patterns Support

Overview:

– Material assets are now extracted locally to enable rendering by users who don’t have access to the file path referenced by the material

– Materials and Fill Patterns can now be transferred using Harvest Project Elements

Details

It’s no longer necessary for users to have access to the file path stored in the material in order to render materials inserted from UNIFI Core. Material assets are now extracted locally if the user does not have access to the file paths referenced by the material.

  1. I love the Project Analytics aspect of Unifi. I am just curious about 2 things within it.
    1. Ho does a project get above an 8.9/10 score? I use this to push teams to always be mindful while modeling, but everyone is trying for a perfect score. Is this even possible?

    2. What is the point of the Event Stream section? I have had the Project Analytics for quite a few months, but have never seen anything in that section. Am I seeing this correctly or is this just a section that is being phased out?
