WARNING* The V3617 Upgrade will only work if you are already running a version 3600 or later.

You can check your current version by looking at the Help > About information from the top navigation bar inside AIMS. If you are not already running a 3600 or later version then please contact the AIMS team on 020 7377 2806.

This upgrade provides a number of fixes (detailed below) and makes a change to the locking protocol utilised by AIMS.

Locking Protocol:
Where a client machine using AIMS experiences a momentary drop in connection with the server, a user may find themselves "locked out" of the record they were working in by their own previous connection. From now on AIMS will bypass locks created by the same user login, and no lock out will occur.

N.B. In organisations where several users share a common log in, e.g. guest or admin, please note that this change of protocol will no longer prevent two users being in the same record.

Fixes and changes:
Default values can now be set for the How and Where contacted fields in the Work Done contacts screen.
The Convert function in Report layouts (only available in AIMS Extra) can now be applied to all field types. For instance, you are now able to map your Post Code field using the Convert tables' function which will enable you to report on clients by local authority wards or other geographical location. E.g. HR17 = Upper Town, HR19 = Upper Town, HR2 = Lower Town (see Conversion tables in the Full Help Guide).

The client notes field no longer prevents new client profile fields being moved to different places on the form.

The search screen sometimes duplicated search results under some specific search criteria, this no longer happens.

AIMS graphic "print" button reports can now be run using a work done date range condition without causing an on-screen duplication of graphic report records.
