ICOTS Code Release 29.4 - Enhancements & Bug Fixes

ICOTS 29.4 code release went into production on March 25, 2015 and implemented the development items described below:

Nested Activity History

How the compact activities under each compact case are displayed has been completely re-designed. All responses and activity-associated CARs are now nested directly under the activity to which it belongs. For example, transfer replies are now nested under the transfer request to which they're associated and violation responses/addendums are nested under the original violation report activity.

When a user clicks on a compact case radio button, the nested table of activities will display below the compact cases table. The activities are listed in chronological order of original activity submission dates.

Color-code icons are displayed next to the activity so users can easily identify their current status:

  • ActivityHistory_green_icon.png Green icons identify transmitted activities
  • ActivityHistory_blue_icon.png Blue icons identify created but not yet submitted activities
  • ActivityHistory_yellow_icon.png Yellow icons identify submitted but not yet transmitted activities
  • ActivityHistory_black_icon.png Black icons identify withdrawn activities 


Clicking on a compact activity will display its activity history and full preview window directly below the nested table. Other than their location on the page, there are no changes to the functionality of activity history link or full preview window.


If a user links a compact action request to a particular activity (like a transfer reply), the CAR will be nested below the activity to which it's linked. 



Users can easily revert to the previous "Classic View" of the activity history by clicking the corresponding check box above the compact cases table. The classic view behaves exactly as the activity history did before the enhancement.


Users can change the default view for compact cases in their user profile under the "Preferences" tab. 'Nested View' and 'Classic View are the two options.


Progress reports created by a specialized CAR now list "created by specialized CAR" in the activity history instead of "created by sending state PO".


Outstanding Bugs

Several issues were also addressed in this release:

  1. Unable to move compact case when Source Offender's PO has been deactivated
  2. Fix the RFRI-Reply due date calculation
  3. Compact office fax number cannot be edited

    Honestly, at first, I strongly disliked!  The colors were blaring and bold, where what we're used to are soft, muted, easy on the eyes color - everything was jumbled [so I thought].  I was thankful and relieved for the 'classic' button [who likes change anyway].  Then I read the 'how to' above and I LOVE it - I was ready to use it right after reading - this already great program is improving in leaps and bounds - can't wait for upcoming additions and updates.  It's great that a program was created and is being improved constantly by people who 'know what we do' and can make our duties easier by knowing what changes are beneficial.  Thank you!!
