7th ICOTS Enhancement of FY 2018 Launched

ICOTS Code Release Enhancements

ICOTS Code Release 33.6.0

On Wednesday, May 16, 2018, the 7th enhancement release of FY 2018 was launched in ICOTS. This enhancement prevents 2 people from simultaneously working on the same activity in the compact office. In more detail:

  • Currently, 2 compact office users are able to simultaneously access the same pending compact activity from the compact workload. If they both complete the activity and submit it into workflow, a duplicate is created. While this is a rarer occurrence than it was in the past, it still happens.
  • This enhancement will check to see if another compact office user has already submitted an activity into workflow when they press the “Submit” button. If not, the activity follows the normal workflow process. If so, the user is presented with an error message stating “This compact action has already been completed by another user” in a bright red box at the top of the screen. The options to take on the activity are then grayed-out.
