What would be really useful is if the Help | About screen also displayed (to Administrators ONLY and not on Remote Subscriber databases) if there was an update (Service Pack or Hotfix) later than the one installed.

 

If one exists, it should also have a link to the KB with the changes and download link, but provide a warning that ALL systems sharing a database (LAN or Sync) need to be at the same build.

 

The "Check for Updates" and "Toaster" popup no-longer do this ... and for good reason. It had serious consequences if a user applied an update before Admin/IT were ready to apply to all users.

 

But now, we have the issue that users are using builds with issues that they don't realise have been resolved unless they regularly trawl the KB or forums.

 

I hope there will be more patches rolled out for issues like:

If so, it will need an easier way for users to know when a patch is available.
