- Date Released:
- April 30 2021
There are some big changes and lots of smaller, though notable, refinements in this release.
Ellucian Ethos integration
Ellucian Ethos provides a cloud-based unified data model for Ellucian’s higher education solutions. This provides institutions with a single source of truth for all stakeholders and prevents information silos. Now you can use the External Content Syncer to integrate with Ethos data like student, course, and faculty information. In fact, if Ethos has it, you can now sync the data with Terminalfour. We've created an article on how to use this powerful feature.
Inherited Page Layout labeled in Section
If you've ever found yourself guessing the inherited Page Layout used for a Section, guess no more – the inherited Page Layout is now labeled in the drop-down.
Create forms in languages other than English
Now you can create forms in languages other than English. If you have another Language set up in Terminalfour you can switch Language and create a form in that Language.
Programmable Layout linting
Do you use Programmable Layouts? We do too. To save you time chasing bugs, we've added a linting feature so you can now get a heads up on potential issues before you even preview.
Fixes Of Note
Choose a timezone for your date element
Now when you're using the time and date picker, your local timezone is displayed next to it so you can be confident that the time you're setting is the right one.
Content Items in the delete modal are ordered correctly
Previously when you deleted a Content Item via Content > Delete Content, the order of Content Items in the modal didn't match the order in the Section. The ordering is now consistent.
The user's initials are used to identify the content owner
Previously, the same default image of a 1970's footballer was used for all content owners. We've updated this now, so the user's initials are shown instead.
Media Items in Categories display consistently in Chrome
Occasionally when Chrome users navigated away from a Media Category and returned to it, it appeared empty even when it wasn't. That's fixed now.
Bulk move Media Items now functions consistently
Some users were getting an error when they bulk moved Media Items from one Category to another. This now works as intended.
