Update Aug. 31st, 2015: A new Export All feature for form responses is also available as a post patch hotfix. This allows you to export all form responses for the current filter (or all responses if no filter applied) as a .csv, instead of being restricted to just the current page.
To enable this new Export All feature, please install Patch 3 first, then download an apply Hotfix 6824.
Applying the Patch
After applying the patch, a restart of Railo is required. You can restart Railo in one of two ways:
A) If you have local web server access, search for the application "Railo-Tomcat Service Control". Open the application and click Stop, then Start.
B) If you do not have server access, goto
Enter your password (default is connections), and click the restart button.
Note that the intranet will not be available for 1 to 5 minutes as Railo restarts.
Patch 3 is all about improving the responsiveness of the Intranet. Performance has been improved, especially Online Forms (Formbuilder) performance for customers who have thousands of form responses. Part of these improvements include adding new indexes to the database. It make take up to 10 minutes after the patch is applied, before the indexes are finished building in the background. Once finished, you should see must faster response times when working with forms.
- Faster general page response times by caching application settings
- Faster general page response times by automatic cleanup of notification site alerts older than a month
- Faster loading of search page by loading additional Search Option dropdowns on demand
- Faster browsing of forms and form results through query optimization, and not displaying Items Pending Approval by default
New Generic Error Screen Security Option
Under Admin, Setup Tab, Global Config, Errors & Logging option, you can now hide detailed error messages.
With this option turned on, if an error occurs, the user will only see the message below.
Online Forms Now Shows Published Items First
The home page of Online Forms now shows the Published Items tab first. Users must now click the Items Pending Approval tab to see their items pending approval. This change was necessary to improve the responsiveness of the application, as checking for Items Pending Approval can take a long time for customers who have tens of thousands of form responses.
Mega Menus Can Vertically Expand
When the text of a top menu header exceeds the fixed menu section width set in the theme, the top menu will now expand vertically to accommodate up to 3 lines of text.
User Event Alerts Automated Cleanup
Subscription notifications are now automatically deleted after one month. This is necessary to improve page load times for users who have hundreds of unread user event alerts.
Employee Directory Search Export Restricted
The ability to export employee directory records after searching now restricted to Administrators and Employee Profile Managers.
Search Re-Index Now Continues on Error
When clicking "Re-index my site data" under Admin, Setup tab, Site Search, the full re-indexing of all items can now continue if an error related to a particular item occurs. The number of successfully items indexed items and the number of errors is now returned on completion. Details of any errors are written to the application log file. If any errors occurred, administrator can choose to email logs directly from this screen.
