This release notes list contains information on all essential updates included in the released version 1.5 of Litify Inbox powered by SmartCloud Connect. The list summarizes major and minor improvements, changes, and notable fixes.
This release will be pushed to all Litify Inbox users automatically.
Improved sidebar user interface
Several improvements to the display of record cards within the Litify Inbox sidebar:
• The card header now includes all four key fields, as defined in the sidebar customization for the object
• Additional fields can be viewed from the main sidebar interface by clicking a button at the bottom of the record card
• The list of fields shown on a card can be expanded by clicking the "Show all important important fields" button; the "Show only important fields" button has been removed
• Sidebar fonts are lighter and there is more space between UI elements
• Removed feedback collection widget
• “Important” status for fields corresponds fully to Sidebar customization settings
• Minor changes to text for controls and notifications
Improved user experience when switching between emails
When switching between emails with the Litify Inbox sidebar open, Inbox now always refreshes the initial suggested records based on the new email. Previously, this behavior was not universal.
If a record with unsaved changes is opened in the Sidebar, Litify Inbox will now prompt the user to save their changes with a confirmation dialog when the user selects another Outlook email or event.
Auto-sync recurring events from Outlook to Litify
Recurring events will auto-sync from Outlook to Litify if the recurring events autosharing option is enabled. Recurring events already auto-synced from Litify to Outlook.
For more information about syncing recurring events, including details about sync exceptions, please see https://success.litify.com/s/article/Exceptions-to-1-1-Event-Sync
Save .eml files to SpringCM or Salesforce
Email messages can now be saved as .eml files to Salesforce. Firms integrated with SpringCM can save .eml files to SpringCM instead. This allows users to view correspondence and documents in the same place. Users can open .eml files in Outlook to view and respond to emails saved in this way.
Improvements to Scheduling Assistant (Share my availability, Send meeting time slots)
Several improvements to behavior when sending suggested times for an event via the Inbox Sidebar:
• When sending a list of suggested time slots, adjacent time slots are now treated as separate suggestions with separate time slot links. Previously, adjacent time slots would merge into a single longer time slot.
• When using the “Send meeting time slots” feature, meeting duration is now known based on the selected time slots. Previously, users were prompted to enter the duration separately.
• Changed Scheduling Assistant (Share my availability, Send meeting time slots) time format from 24h to 12h.
• Minor interface improvements: meeting duration is now displayed next to meeting location, and the Next button is more visible.
Sync fails: Could not find a part of the path
Fixed a specific issue that was causing synchronization errors after first message autosaving.
Changed .eml filename doesn't change in SpringCM after uploading
Now, when a message is saved in SpringCM as an .eml file and the file's name is changed by the end-user, the change is properly conveyed to SpringCM.
'Event' object identifier cannot be empty
Fixed a specific Event "sync_error: the 'Event' object identifier cannot be empty" error which caused synchronization stops.
Cannot save .eml files to SpringCM
Fixed an issue with .eml files being unsavable in SpringCM (the error notification "Something wrong happened. Attachments were not saved." being displayed)
User can't create Party from + Sidebar icon
Fixed an issue when it was impossible to create a custom Party object using the new + (Create) Sidebar icon.

Fixed a specific issue with objects not being loaded/displayed in their categories on the first Add-In opening in Adaptive view.

Scheduling Assistant: now time slots reserved in tentative (optional) attendees' calendars are not handled as non-selectable and are displayed as transparent on Scheduling Assistant's slots selection page.

Fixed a specific issue with event attendee involved only in a single occurrence of a recurring event not being shared in Salesforce.

Fixed an issue with Open Salesforce Chatter button being inaccessible in the Sidebar.

Fixed an issue with removed meeting attendees being added back on clicking Back and Next in Scheduling Assistant.

Fixed an issue with incorrect timezone being indicated in availability time slots notification email sent out to attendees (the "This meeting has been adjusted to reflect your current time zone. It was initially created in the following time zone:" field).
Do not give the ability to edit saved Enhanced email message Description (HTML Body)
Now it is impossible to edit HTML bodies of messages saved as Enhanced emails in Salesforce, as that had caused issues with the Add-In. Both inbound and outbound messages' bodies are now read-only.

Fixed an issue with recurring calendar events syncing: daily recurring meetings in Salesforce were erroneously converted to weekly recurring events in MS Exchange/Outlook.
