Minor enhancements for the Next® admins and specialists, December 2020

It is no secret that the primary target of our enhancements are the business users, or end users, of Next®. Still, providing ease of use, and increased productivity to those who admin or configure Next® also make great sense.

For this release we have collected the following minor enhancements targeted the admins and specialists:

Enhancement Issue

The Update Item batch job now support booleans 


You are now able to set values for booleans - true and false. Or remove the field completely. 

Performance enhancement for high volume permission changes NEXT-3586

We have improved the memory handling in the situations where Next® performs massive amounts of permission changes. This will allow users to perform major restructuring of permissions in less time. 

The Next® Transformation Engine is now setup in Next® Admin NEXT-3581

The external Next® Transformation Engine you use to make OCR, Full text extraction, and PDF version can now be setup entirely within the Next® UI. 
Administration >Next® Transformation Engine, lets you setup the ports to use. 

The Next® Transformation Engine is more robust NEXT-3625
We have improved the error handling in the Next® Transformation Engine to make it more robust and stable

Next® Document Capture adds support foo 12-hour formats NEXT-3620
Now Next® Document  Capture also reads dates in the 12-hour format 3pm vs 15:00. 

Next® Notifications are now persisted NEXT-3319
Notifications, and the Next® Notification Center, are becoming increasingly important to users of Next®. As of now notifications are persisted, and will survive a server restart.

Item field definition made easier

In order to make it easier to work with the fields associated with an Item type, we have moved them to an own tap - Fields

In a future release, we will create a single unified repository of fields available in Next®. By then, you will only have to select what fields you want to associate with any specific Item type.


For the techies

This is pretty much technical in it's nature.
