Resource Central - Limitations and known issues


Forms - Not storing updates in forms

Updating Forms will not have effect on the backend order form used by service providers

Result: Service Provider cannot change an order as the buttons "Update" and "Update and send email" will not respond.

Workaround: Do not do change in order forms until next release. If you already have an issue with your forms on Hotfix 1 please do contact Support for assistance. We will decommision Resource Central 4.1 Hotfix 1 to make sure that no customer will face this issue.

Status: Fix found and will be released with Service Release 3.


Mac Outlook Add-In - Not loading resources

When creating a new meeting with no attendees or rooms added, the resource list will not load when opening the Outlook Add-In.

This is due to a bug in the Microsoft Outlook Add-In API occuring in latest update for the Mac platform.

We have tested pre-release version of the API, where this is fixed.

Workaround: E.g. add your attendees before opening the Resource Finder Outlook Add-in for Mac to load the list of resources correctly

Status: Awaiting MS fix of bug with new release


Installation issue - Malformed Html in Forms

The issue can occur if Resource Central contain Forms with malformed Html as a result of manual changes directly in the source code of the form. This impacts the upgrade process to Hotfix 1. It is a problem with older forms created on Resource Central 3.8 or older. In the older HTML editor end tags was not automatically inserted if forgotten by the person changing the html. This can happen by using other editors not making sure, that the syntax is well-formed with end tags and the html is then saved from the source code view.

Workaround: When having Forms with malformed html a way to ensure consistancy is to go to each form in the 4.0 version before upgrading to 4.1 HF1 and press save on each form. If you are upgrading from e.g. 3.7 or 3.8, first install 4.0 and save the forms and then upgrade to Hotfix 1. 4.0 Hotfix 7 can be downloaded from the website or maintenance portal. 

Status: Hotfix 1 Package will be available through support only to ensure awareness of potential issue throught out July. Later versions of Resource Central will include a check of existing forms during installation process.

Workaround: The solution is to open Resource Central configuration tool, and configure the db connection for this service

Status: Solved in Service Release 2.
