TMS 8 8.27.8.0 Release Report

TMS 8 8.27.8.0 Release Report

We are pleased to announce the latest release of TMS 8: version 8.27.8.0!

This version of TMS 8 introduces the following new features:

  1. Multiple Submits are now disabled

    Once you click primary actions on a form (such as Submit), the button is now disabled until the form is closed or the changes are validated. You will now no longer be able to submit multiple copies of the same request! 
  1. New Knowledgebase for TMS 8

    We have made further changes to our help system within TMS 8. Previously, we had helpfiles stored on your system that opened whenever you clicked the ‘?’ symbol on your TMS 8 webpage. We have now migrated these help pages to our support portal – clicking the ‘?’ symbol will now direct you to these webpages. The knowledgebase is fully searchable and is context-sensitive, so TMS 8 will automatically direct you to the appropriate article.

  2. A new way of delivering release documentation

    We will now be publishing release documentation to our support portal, as well. 

You can view a full history of changes to TMS 8 functionality by downloading this PDF.
