Getting the (Licensing) Kinks Out...

Here's where we are today. It's a combination of good, bad, and everything in between.

  • Good: We sent out a large number of 2009.1 upgrade emails yesterday.
  • Bad: Some of those contracts were missing capability assignments. So users would encounter “You have 0 keys” messages.
  • Good: Fixed missing capability assignments. Customers can activate these changes by clicking the “Update” button in the license dialog.
  • Bad: Still have a number of contracts to create/review by hand.
  • Good: Whole team is engaged, especially our sales group.
  • Bad: Some folks are wondering where their 2009.1 update info is at?
  • Good: We're sending out an email blast to let people know “what's up”.
  • Bad: We've got a few 2008.2 users who need key updates. Please contact us if you haven't heard from us by now.
  • Good: We will finish this thing on Friday.

Come on Friday!
