Release 7.2.2 - 21 March 2017

This release has many enhancements to the Colligo Briefcase Offline Search including the option to search content and the ability to hide duplicates. This feature is documented in the knowledge base article How do I use Offline Search?.

New in this Release: Colligo Engage 7.2.2 (build 7.2.2.0)

Reference Description
CON-950 Colligo Briefcase Offline Search can now search on content as well as metadata. Content search is possible because offline content downloaded by Colligo Briefcase is now indexed by the Windows search indexer.
Content search is used by the features described in CON-951, 952, 953 and 954.
CON-952 The Colligo Briefcase Offline Search user interface now has an option to allow users to toggle content search on or off. When off, only metadata will be searched.
To specify default search behavior, use the configuration setting Enable Content Search.
CON-951
CON-953
When Colligo Briefcase Offline Search is used to search on both metadata and content, the default display order for search results is to list items that match metadata before items that match content. Users can change the sort order by clicking on the headers. Files that match both metadata and content are only listed once, with search results color coded as noted below:
  • Files that match on metadata: black
  • Files that match on metadata and content: dark brown
  • Files that match on content only: light brown
To configure this feature, use the configuration setting Enable Color Coding.
CON-954 Colligo Briefcase Offline Search can be configured to hide duplicates from the results list.
Note: Duplicates are hidden based on the filename only. The filename does not include the path leading to the file. If two files are both called contract.pdf in the offline content, only one file will be displayed in the results list. As such, this feature should only be used when offline content is guaranteed to be identical for identically named files.
To enable this feature, use the configuration setting Hide Duplicates Config. Once enabled, this feature will be displayed in the user interface.
To specify the default behavior of this feature, use the configuration setting Show Duplicates.
CON-964 Users will now see a progress indicator when version history is being retrieved.
CON-980 Improved handling of the List View Lookup Threshold (LVLT).
To allow Colligo Briefcase to remember (until the application restarts) that the LVLT has been reached in CFS, use the configuration setting Remember Lookup Threshold.
To adjust the starting point for breaking apart requests when the LVLT has been reached in CFS, use the configuration setting Maximum Lookup Threshold.

Resolved Issues: Colligo Engage 7.2.2 (build 7.2.2.0)

Reference Description
CON-940 Non-English installations would not display locations in the *.pst. This issue was caused by the resolution for CON-927. Additionally, the issue described in CON-927 now includes non-English installations.

CON-963 The Recreate Navigation Hierarchy configuration setting now has an MSI property. For details, refer to the knowledge base article Recreate Navigation Hierarchy.
