Release Date: April 18, 2016

This maintenance release is small and was primarily focused on bug fixes. Three bugs were fixed and the most notable new feature is the optimization made to the Remote Data Collection module to better function with 3G internet sources.

New Features

  • The RDC module has been optimized for use with 3G internet sources so that users will use less bandwidth during sync and will not be disconnected while syncing data when their IP address changes.

Resolved Bugs


  • Illume only users are now able to save the survey occurrence for a survey login event using a data transfer action to use the “Most Recent Instance” of the survey.


  • SDK users are now able to update participant study items through the REST API.

Remote Data Collection

  • The participant list selection dialog used to select a participant list for use with a survey in the RDC module no longer cuts off the last line of text in the window.

Known Issues

  • Partial submissions are not displayed properly in the audit log of Data Change when synced in RDC.
  • Parameters with a lower case name return an error when attempting to change the name or the value of the parameter.
  • Illume Installs with 500 or more surveys can’t see all of their surveys in the Data Change Module.
  • Illume installs with 500 or more sessions, participants on a single list, or participant lists can’t see off of their sessions, participants, or participant lists in the Data Change Module.
  • Data imports into surveys containing loops are succeeding and failing in an inconsistent manner.
  • The session refresh notification that warns users when they are about to be logged out due to inactivity in the system does not pop up while the user is working in a modal.
  • A null reference error is being thrown when a user logs into the system who doesn’t have privileged to go to the Enterprise Manager and needs to agree to a user agreement that has been configured on the system.
  • Users cannot view audit log data in Data Change without the sessionGet privilege at the system level even if they are trying to view a session for a survey that they do have the sessionGet privilege for.
  • Changing the control size setting in the survey style sheet for Radio/Checkbox input types does not actually change the size of those inputs in the survey.
  • The Survey Comments Summary feature in the desktop client does not display survey comments in the Review All Comments list.
  • Permissions on the application folder of Illume installs with the click once installer can prevent users from logging into the system.
  • “Last modified by name” column header uses the database column name instead of the end user label in Discovery.

  • Hidden tag is not supported for use with check all that apply questions.
