CWS/CMS Bulletin - R7.3.3 Interim Release Reminder


Date: 12/15/2015
Title: R7.3.3 Interim Release Reminder
What is Impacted: CWS/CMS Application
Describe Impact:

DPU#10595827 was opened to address an issue discovered with implementation
of R7.3.B. The fix for this issue has been expedited and will be implemented on
Monday, December 21, 2015 along with seven (7) DPUs and eight (7) PTSs.

The Help Desk tickets and PTS issues are described in detail in the R7.3.3 Interim Release List located on the CWS/CMS website behind County Logon>Code Release Secure Site>Release 7.3.3>Interim Release 7.3.3.

Please note the Spring Forms release is scheduled for implementation on
February 17, 2016. A separate Bulletin will come later with more details.

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.
  • It is recommended that the install of Interim Release 7.3.3 occur via the office network, as opposed to a remote connection.
  • Contact your County Support Staff to confirm that the correct version has been delivered to the workstation.
  • Users that are logged onto the system when the release arrives will not be using the new code at their workstation.
  • Like major releases, Interim Release 7.3.3 will be using a full installation package.  There is no outage.
