We are proud to announce that, as of October 25, 2018, thinkstep released a new version of our SoFi software with improved dashboard appearance and user session management.
We have put some efforts into improving the appearance of Dashboards. Instead of displaying a white portlet with a spinner if reports need to be recalculated, existing results will be displayed until recalculation is finished.
An adjusted header message via portlet will inform users about ongoing recalculations. If no existing result can be displayed, a white portlet will be displayed.
Scheduled cache rebuilds
You can now intentionally schedule the automatic unit factor cache rebuild in order to avoid conflicts between data collection and data import processes with required unit factor cache rebuilds. You can reduce the frequency so rebuilds are only scheduled during the night or during less busy weekdays. If you have experienced these kinds of conflicts in the past, please contact our support team.
User session management
In the SoFi 6.13 release, we made changes to user session management in order to further increase the security levels of SoFi. As a consequence, parallel logins with the same account are no longer allowed. Attempting to run a parallel session will result in an automatic logout of the first logged-in user. Additionally, sessions will be automatically terminated after 60 minutes of inactivity and the user logged out. You can adjust the maximum allowed time of inactivity. Please get in touch with our support team in case you want to make any adjustments.
