    • With the introduction of the "Count" button in the version 8.23 of Inova, some users were confused about the conditions under which they could use the "Go to first/last page" and "Go to x page" features in a lister. We've made a few changes to clarify this.
      Now, these features are displayed only when they are usable, ie when the "Count" button is activated.

The new add-in will be available within the next few weeks. Your Customer Success Manager will reach out to you or your team directly with more information when it’s available.

    We look forward to the upcoming release. Stay tuned!

  • Legacy Outlook Add-in v2.4 (February 2021)
    • Legacy Outlook Add-in
    • Version
    • 2.4
    • Release date
    • February 8, 2021

     

    This new version of the add-in has been released in order to update our code signing certificate.

    Standard installation

    • For users who had already installed the previous version (2.3), the add-in will automatically update itself to the 2.4 version after restarting Outlook.
    • All new installations (for new users, new computers) of the add-in must be carried out with 2.4 version available here.

    Centralized installation

    The update will not be done automatically and it is incumbent upon the customer internal Support/IT department to ensure that users are updated to the latest version.
    The new offline package is available here.

    • Users who already had 2.3 version installed on their computer can continue to use it without any issue if they prefer.
      However, if at some point the add-in is deactivated by Outlook, it will be then impossible for them to reactivate it due to the expiration of the previous certificate. In this case, it will be necessary to deploy the 2.4 version on their machine.
    • All new installations (for new users, new computers) of the add-in must be carried out with 2.4 version.
