Release Date: June 1, 2018

This release targets two specific changes that are large issues for customers who experience them: 1) Allowing users to opt-out of the MX lookup process for email job processing and 2) Addressing a long time RDC issue that interferes with data syncing.


  • Users can now choose whether or not their emails should go through the MX lookup process when being processed and sent by Illume or Discovery in order to work around SMTP configurations that don’t work well with the default behavior.

Resolved Bugs


  • Fixed a bug that prevented users from successfully re-downloading surveys to the RDC client when participant lists were being synced due to a timing issue.

Data Change

  • Fixed a bug that caused data change to omit newly cleaned data from the review modal that didn’t previously have a value.

Known Issues

  • Bounced emails sent to the configured Bounced Email Message Forward Address will always be automatically deleted even when the “Force Deletion of Bounced Email Messages” setting is configured to No.
  • When participant are being deleted in bulk, users are unable to login to the system due to database locking that occurs during the delete process.
  • Scheduled tasks are hard coded to be scheduled at midnight when added to a participants workflow regardless of when the task is actually added to the participant.
  • Parameters that are copied into surveys from surveys with translation packages cannot be deleted until a translation package for each referenced language is made in the new survey, then the translation packages may also be deleted.

  • Users are unable to use the “Add as a Caseowner Until this Appointment is Closed” configuration option on appointments when the selected user is not already configured as an additional caseowner for the given participant.
  • Response options that are hidden by show-if logic, but had previously been the selected option for the question, will throw Invalid Response errors when the participant attempts to navigate to the next page of the survey even though the question is not required and the previously selected response is now dirty data.

  • Users without the Get User permission will receive an internal server error when changing the Study Task Type in the My Calendar view page of Discovery.
  • The maximum character length configuration option for text field questions in responsive surveys does not prevent participants from entering more characters that allows, but will simply throw an error when they try to navigate to the next page.
