New Enterprise Features
This is an experimental module we are slowly rolling out to the public. It has been successful for some of our enterprise customers so we will begin opening it up to the general public.
What is it?
It is a method for allowing a team to:
- Stay on the same page by compiling all relevant content into one place
- Create discussion points to resolve any issues
- Get approvals on decisions by the appropriate managers
- Handoff finalized decisions as tasks to the correct person to carry it out
- Sections can be created, renamed, reordered, copied, indented, or deleted. Sections may also be created, renamed, reordered, and deleted within the Page Manager.
- Rename a section by double clicking on its name.
- Discussion items may be created, and deleted.
- Check each one off as they are addressed.
- Clicking on the discussion item will open the room on the associated section header.
- They will be sorted if they are entered in the form <number>.<text>.
- The discussion item banner appears at the top right of Vyew while within the appropriate Section’s pages, making it simple to address the items where relevant.
- Approval items may be created, and deleted.
- Approval items created on a page’s comments pod will show up on the Procedural Framework too.
- Clicking on the approval item will open the room on the associated section header or page. There it can be assigned to a user and assigned a due date.
- Approval items will be sorted if they are entered in the form <number>.<text>.
Version 4.30 – released 21 June 2012
- File Sharing: Upload any file into a Vyew room. Vyew automatically converts many files types for display. Files that can’t be converted are made available as an icon for download to attendees you specify.
- Vyew Room UI Translations: The Vyew Room UI and tools are now available in Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, French, Spanish, Russian and Italian. Change your settings in Menu->Account Settings.
- Split Page View: You can now view 2 pages in the same Vyew room at once. Click the Split View button at the bottom right of the Page Manager.
- Login Email Aliasing: Assign other email addresses permission to log in to your account as Owner. Useful for delegating administrative duties. Access the alias manager through Menu->Account Settings.
- UI clarifications and performance optimizations.
Version 4.31 – released 20 July 2012
- Direct Page Linking: Instead of just sharing a room’s URL, you can now share the URL to a specific page in a room. Just copy the URL from your browser’s address bar– it will now include the page ID at the end.
- Because of Direct Page Linking, clicking the BACK button on your browser will take you to the previous page you were on.
- Procedural adjustments and login optimizations.
Flash 11.2 and Linux
Flash 11.2 is the last version for Linux from Adobe, and unfortunately, it has issues, especially on 64-bit Linux systems, all the more so with nVidia drivers. You may experience browsers crashing on websites that use Flash, including Vyew. The best workaround for this is to revert to Flash 11.1.
- Extract libflashplayer.so from here.
- Close any running browsers.
- Copy the extracted libflashplayer.so over the current libflashplayer.so (and/or rename the old one just in case) that is in /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/.
The google-chrome browser (not the chromium-browser open source app) is supposed to include it’s own built-in, Google developed, Flash plug-in, but that has been inconsistent or missing in some 64-bit systems.
Flash 11.3 and Firefox on Windows
Update: The most current versions of Adobe Flash (11.5+) and Mozilla Firefox (17+) appear to have this issue straightened out. Updating to those versions should fix things.
There is an issue with Adobe Flash 11.3 and Firefox on Windows Vista and Windows 7, where Firefox becomes unresponsive on websites that use Flash, including Vyew. There are a few workarounds listed on this softpedia.com article (or see Adobe’s suggested troubleshooting guide), but the simplest we’ve found is to revert back to Flash 11.2 for now:
- Download and save the Adobe Flash uninstaller.
- Close any browsers or apps that use Flash.
- Double click the uninstall_flash_player.exe file you just downloaded to run it.
- Reboot your system.
- Download and save the Adobe Flash 11.2 ZIP archive.
- Again, close all Flash-using apps and browsers.
- Double click on the ZIP file you just downloaded (fp_18.104.22.168_archive.zip) to unzip it and open an Explorer window.
- Double click on the fp_22.214.171.124_archive folder to open it.
- If you’re on 64-bit system, double click on the 11_2r202_235_64bit folder to open it.
- Double click on the flashplayer11_2r202_235_win_64bit.exe file to run it and install Flash.
- If you’re on 32-bit system, double click on the 11_2r202_235_32bit folder to open it.
- Double click on the flashplayer11_2r202_235_win_32bit.exe file to run it and install Flash.
- When the installation finishes, the installer will ask you to Choose your update method. Select Notify me when updates are available. Click Done.
- Close down all windows and reboot your system.
- Verify that you now have Flash 11.2 installed by checking on our browser test page.
You may delete the uninstaller file and installer ZIP file you downloaded in steps 1 and 5. Until Mozilla and/or Adobe resolve this issue, refrain from updating Flash. We will update this page as we find out more info.
