Qweri 3.7.20 – User Interfaces Tweaks

Lexum recently released Qweri 3.7.20. We generally do not issue release notes for minor releases (or hot fixes), but this one includes a few improvements to the website and the administrative interface that we thought worth mentioning.

Here’s what’s new:

“Expand/Collapse All” Links

Since version 3.7.15, Qweri displays an “Expand All” link at the top of the table of content that allows users to expand all the titles listed in one click. This is the best way to get a quick overview of the entire table of contents without having to individually expand every title and sub-title. Once the table of contents has been expanded, a reverse link labelled “Collapse All” allows users to reset the table of contents to its original state.

Qweri 3.7.20 refines this new feature further by hiding the “Expand All” link when the table of contents only includes one level of titles. This tweak lightens the interface for simpler documents for which the “Expand All” feature is not required in the first place.

Search Filters for Administrative Tabs

Filters have been added to the search boxes in the Documents, Groups and Users tabs of the administrative interface. These filters make it easier to quickly locate specific entries for clients handling large volumes of documents, groups, or users.

Criteria to filter Documents are:

  • Access Permissions
    • Hold
    • Do not publish
    • Publish
  • Documents associated with at least one user
  • Documents associated with at least one group

Criteria to filter Groups are:

  • Groups allowing the sharing of annotations

Criteria to filter Users are:

  • Users with account disabled
  • Users with access to the administrative interface

New Label for the Administrative User Password Reset

Under the Users tab of the administrative interface, the password reset link has been relabelled to “Send password reset email to user” and a tooltip added. This new format should provide more clarity on what is happening when resetting a user password. When hit, an email including a link for the creation of a new password is sent to the corresponding user. This link is valid for 7 days.

For Accounts Integrated with a Third-Party Identity Provider: Listing of Permission to Non-Existent Documents

This tweak applies only for Qweri accounts implementing single-sign-on (SSO) with an identity provider not operated by Lexum and permissions defined at the document level (by implementing specific Rights API). In this situation, the external identity provider may grant some users the permission to access documents that cannot be found in the Qweri account. This situation may be adequate, for instance if the documents are hosted elsewhere. But sometimes it may be indicative of a problem, for instance if the documents ID were changed in one database, but not in the other.

To facilitate troubleshooting, Qweri now lists access permissions of users to non-existent product numbers. This list is located to the immediate right of the main list of External Document Access Permissions under the Users tab.
