Introduction

RecordPoint for SharePoint version 4.01 brings new enhancements aimed at improving system, administrative and management processes with specific focus on performance, security, deployment, and records administrative tasks.

Changes in this version affect Active Site users, Record Management teams and System Administrators. To make the most of these updates you may wish to communicate these changes to users within your organisation and in particular any features or settings requiring action by an administrator before users can benefit from the new functionality.

These release notes are aimed at describing at a high level, the new and modified features available in this release. For more detailed information, please refer to the 4.01 release section on our Customer Support Portal.

  Before deploying this release, we recommend following a best practice deployment process, which includes thorough testing in a non-production environment.
