New Features and Enhancements
In the Work Orders window, users now have the ability to select a Cost Specific field related to the Cost Type and enter a Amount Used when creating a Cost Day Card. These fields are also available in Work Manager.
A Cost Specific window has also been added that allows users to set a Cost Type for each cost detail record.
Users will now be prevented from adding a new Time Entry Day Card for the same date, employee, and code combination(s) for which a Labor Day Card has already been approved. To edit or delete the Time Entry card, the linked Labor Day Card must first be unapproved.
When the TimeEntryforLaborDayCards and the SyncHoursFromTimeEntry feature toggles are both On, the following features are now enabled:
When either the TimeEntryForLaborDaycards or the SyncHoursFromTimeEntry feature toggles are On, the following features are now enabled in the Create Work Orders window:
- Make Day Cards menu item or button now excludes creation of Labor Day Cards
- Completely Remake Day Cards menu item or button now excludes the deletion of existing Labor Day Cards and the follow-up Make Day Cards action
- Insert Like menu item is hidden on the Labor Day Cards pane
- subActivityId has been added to the workOrderDto
- subActivityId has been added to the ActivityLookupDto
- costSpecificId, comments, and amount fields have been added to the WorkOrdersCostsDaycardDto
- The V2 Material REST API (/rest/v2/mwm/material) now retrieves information about both the Available Quantity (availableQuantity) and Current Quantity (quantity) of each material stock bin
The new Risk Assessment feature allows users to assess and track the risk probability (%) and monetized risk value at the level of the individual structure and the network.
Out of the box, the system has 6 risk categories and 18 events with the probabilities for each already defined. Your System Admin can add more agency-specific risk categories and events as needed.
Life-Cycle Cost Analysis
The new Life-Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) feature allows the user to conduct LCCA from different treatment plans on any given structure. For any selected structure, users can define multiple treatment plans and then calculate both the Uniform Cost and the resulting performance. The results are also plotted on the graph so users can easily compare the cost and condition changes between the treatment plans.
Work Requests are now also available on phones.
Users now have the option of adding the location information from the original Work Order when duplicating Work Orders.
The Admin unit a user is logged into can easily be viewed on the menu pane.
Work Order dates can now be extended even after a Work Order has been synced. This is expected to ease tasks for field crew by allowing them to extend Work Order dates for extended work, without having to return to the office to sync their devices.
The activity and sub-activity functionality of Work Requests are now also available on Work Orders as well.
User can now select sub-activities during work order creation based on the selected Activity.
Cost Day Cards now have 3 new fields: Amount, Cost Specific, and Comments. The cost specific field allows for more granularity in classifying the cost type. The amount reflects the quantity incurred for that specific cost. These are configurable fields and can be hidden easily as needed.
Cost Day Cards can also accept a cost value of $0 now. This is also configurable. Without this configuration option, the cost would need to be non-zero.
A new asset location edit feature was introduced whereby, point assets can be selected and their location edited on the map with ease. This is expected to make it easy for personnel in New York State to add new signal assets via the map.
Jaspersoft 4.x reports will be deprecated by 7.6.1. In preparation for that, a migration tool has been provided within the System module of the Web application. This migration tool allows for reports to be migrated from Jaspersoft 4.x to 6.x. A new role called Reports Admin has been introduced. Users assigned this role will be able to perform the report migration.

Known Issues, Limitations, and Restrictions
- In Work Manager, when adding a new Work Request an error appears if the name is more than 20 characters long. (KYTC)
- In Signals, when selecting multiple assets with the multi-select tool on the bound map, it will sometimes not select all the assets within the selected area. After selecting assets and moving them on the map, users may have to click in the general map area to complete the action. Users will also need to click on the new Edit button on the map to complete the edit process. To select another single asset afterwards, users need to switch from the multi-select mode back to the Arrow tool. (NYSDOT)

- Work Manager validation checks for Work Logs aren't currently working.
- Users cannot view all warranties attached to a Repair Order if one of them has an empty Name or Warranty Rule field in the Fleet Maintenance Manager App.
- In the Work Manager app, two location cards created for the same asset and the same date currently share Work Logs. Work logs created, edited or deleted on one will be reflected on the other card. The Web Application does not allow duplicate Location cards for the same Date and Asset, so if a duplicate is created on Work Manager by mistake, it can be easily deleted on the Web application or on Work Manager.

- In Fleet & Equipment Manager, it is currently possible to delete all the equipment from an equipment purchase and then have that purchase approved.
- The Work Manager mobile app can crash if the device screen is rotated during sync.
- The Work Manager mobile app, after a Work Request is created it must be synced before the app will allow users to create Work Orders for it.

The supplied CORS filter for Tomcat will not work on Tomcat version 8.5.32 and above. Customers need to review the use of the CORS filter and update web.xml as needed. Additional information can be found at https://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-8.5-doc/config/filter.html
As of Chrome 71, browser pop-ups may be blocked which will negatively affect system operations. To address this in Chrome go to Settings > Advanced > Content Settings > Pop ups and redirects and then add the URL for the application.
The new GIS Explorer like all web mapping applications requires datasets in the geographic coordinate system (EPSG:4326), so customer schemas with data stored in a different coordinate system would need to be transformed in order for map layers to be created from the dataset. See the section on re-projecting geometries in the Implementation Guide
