- Product: 360 Core Client Center
Where can I find release notes and status updates for 360 Core, the E-Journal Portal, and Client Center?
December 6, 2017
We released the following enhancements to 360 Core, E-Journal Portal, and Client Center:
KnowledgeBase notifications will now open in a new tab, rather than navigating the user out of 360 Core.
Title lists can be downloaded from databases even if the status of the database is “Not Tracked.”
The e-catalog search string will be retained even if the search type filter is subsequently changed.
Clients may now configure the use of HTTPS at all times for EJP 2.0 and 360 Link 2.0.
Clients may now configure the base URL of Google Scholar to use HTTPS.
Custom Text added in the 'EJP 2.0' section of Administration Console > E-Journal Portal > Custom Text is now accurately reflected in the E-Journal Portal 2.0 after the cache refresh.
E-Journal Portal 2.0 will now load correctly in Firefox and Chrome when accessed from a proxied link.
Amended the Syndetics URL for retrieving images in order to support HTTPS.
We released the following enhancements to the E-Journal Portal/AtoZ list:
User Toggle to Remove Alternate Titles – For libraries that enable alternate titles in search results, some users can be confused by results returned and/or by the alphabetization of results. Users now have the option to toggle on/off the display of alternate titles. (Previously, the display of alternate titles could be set only at the admin level.)
Performance Improvements for Common Search Types – We have done some refactoring to improve response times for some of the most popular (and often slower) search types for the EJP. We expect certain types of searches to return results faster but note that this is part of a series of ongoing performance-related improvements for the EJP which will continue throughout the rest of the year. (Results may vary and might be difficult to quantify – more details to be provided post-release.
