Service Centre Advice – govdex Release



As part of our ongoing commitment to maintaining and improving govdex there will be an upgrade released on Thursday, 1 December 2016.  The release will be performed outside of business hours.

What are the new features?

Additional Permission – Delete Own
Delete Own has been added to Community Permissions. Users given the permission to delete their own content will be able to remove pages, posts or attachments they have added to a govdex community, whilst still restricting their ability to remove any content that has been added by others.

For further information on setting permissions within your govdex community, please refer to the govdex support documentation.

Managing Space Watchers
Community Administrators can now add and remove watchers for the community as a whole as well as individual pages. Users that are watching a space will receive email notification when changes are made within the community.

Table Adjustments
You now have more options when working with tables. Change column width by simply dragging and dropping borders or allow tables to adjust according to a user’s browser by setting it to responsive.

For further information on adding a table within your govdex community, please refer to the govdex support documentation.

Will there be an outage?

The govdex service will be unavailable from 7.00pm (AEDT) Thursday, 1 December 2016 until approximately 11.00pm (AEDT) Thursday, 1 December 2016.

Do I need to do anything?

Please log out of govdex by 7.00pm (AEDT) Thursday, 1 December 2016.

The vendor that supports the underlying software (Confluence and JIRA) has provided advanced notice that future releases will not support Internet Explorer 10 (IE10). It is recommended that wherever possible, you upgrade to the latest supported version of Internet Explorer or use an alternative browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome in order to avoid display and functionality issues, as well as possible vulnerabilities as a result of outdated browser software.
