Release Date: January 5, 2017

This release was focused improving the email processing functionality in both Illume and Discovery. A bug regarding the Excel download functionality from datagrids and submission data download was fixed.

New Features

  • Asynchronous email processing from Illume or Discovery will only make one connection to the SMTP server per email process and send all emails through that single connection instead of making one connection per email sent resulting in multiple connections to the SMTP server.

Resolved Bugs


  • Fixed a bug that caused commentary question responses that have commas in them to be separated into multiple columns in Excel downloads of submission data.
  • Fixed a bug that caused a duplicate survey to be created in RDC when the file explorer on the local machine was accessing the folder where the RDC surveys are stored.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented a database upgrade from running successfully which in turn prevented users from upgrading their systems.
  • Fixed a bug that caused all database views of every participant list on the system to be dropped and recreated whenever any participant list was edited.
  • Fixed a bug that caused queries for submission data to fail when using certain filter options because not all large queries were being handled by the same process.


  • Fixed a bug that caused the transaction log to count submissions for an survey and multiply that value by the number of Discovery study tasks that use that survey and show the resulting number as the amount of submissions against that survey.
