ImageNow Upgrade Scheduled for Summer
ImageNow, the University's comprehensive imaging and document management system, will be upgraded later this summer to take advantage of new features and bug fixes. The dates of the upgrade have not yet been confirmed, but we are planning for July 21-24. Users should be aware that ImageNow will be unavailable during the upgrade. We will confirm the dates of upgrade as soon as they are approved by the OIT Change Approval Board. In the meantime, please share this information with the ImageNow users and technical support staff in your areas.
New desktop ClientImageNow users who use the web application (WebNow) will not need to take any action as a result of this upgrade. However, desktop client users will need to use a new version of the client.
Deploying the new clientIf your department is using Active Directory (AD) to deploy software, ImageNow users will not need to take any action, but technical support staff will be responsible for deploying the new client to the users that they support. However, if your department does not use AD for software deployment, users will need to work with their IT support staff to install the new version of the desktop client.
The new desktop client will be available for download on the Document Imaging website. In addition, the new client will be distributed among the University Computer Management community so that AD administrators can deploy the new client if they so choose.
Because the new client is not compatible with the current version of ImageNow, we recommend that you do not install the new client until closer to the upgrade. The new client will be available for download at least one week before the upgrade is underway.
