Scenario Manager 6.7 after 6.7.1 goes live
 
Two changes in Release 6.7.1 will not be available in Scenario Manager 6.7, because Scenario Manager data is updated only at major code releases.  As a result, the following symptoms might be noticed:
 
1)    The Spanish version of SOC-156 (entitled "Agency-Foster Parents Agreement-Spanish”) will not appear in the Create New Document - Placement list in Scenario Manager 6.7.
2)    The title of the JV-406 has changed from "Continuance-General (JV406)" to "Continuance-Dependency General (JV406)". In Scenario Manager 6.7, when the user clicks + on the Hearing ID page to create a new ICWA/JV document, the JV-406 will only be available under its old title “Continuance-General (JV406)”.
Both of these issues will be addressed in Scenario Manager 6.8.
CWS/CMS Users please note:

  • It is strongly recommended that the user log off the application each night to insure that they are working with the latest version of the application. The release will be delivered to the workstation when the user logs on and does not require any further action to be taken. The user is not required to restart their workstation.
  • It is recommended that the install of Interim Release 6.7.1 occur via the office network, as opposed to a remote connection.
  • The following step can be taken to check that the Interim Release has been delivered to the workstation.
  • From the Control Panel in CWS/CMS, click on Help > About. The version will be 6.7.1.
  • Users that are logged onto the system when the release arrives will not be using the new code at their workstation until the next time they log on.
  • Unlike major releases, Interim Release 6.7.1 will NOT be using a full installation package and there is no outage.

Down-Level Workstations:

To continue using CWS/CMS, all workstations must be brought up-to-date with Release 6.7.1 before Thursday, March 14, 2013.  On workstations that do not yet have Release 6.7.1, appropriate messages will appear after the user clicks OK on the CWS/CMS Control Panel Logon dialog.  The messages are shown below.
