SESAR 7.1.0 Released

Jan 2018. SESAR version 7.1.0 is released, which includes many new features and improvements. Some highlights:
  

  • Users may now set release dates when registering samples. Release dates determine when sample metadata is publicly accessible and searchable. If no release dates are specified, sample metadata will be publicly accessible immediately (recommended).
  • Users may now update release dates for sample metadata by editing individual sample profiles in MySESAR, using the MySESAR batch update functionality, or using the update web service.
  • A new batch registration template can now be downloaded from MySESAR. This new template allows users to specify different release dates for each sample in the template, rather than setting a single release date for all samples in the template. If no release dates are specified, sample metadata will be publicly accessible immediately (recommended).
  • An email notification will now be sent to sample owners one month before their sample metadata release dates. This email will notify users of the upcoming release dates and recommend steps for editing release dates if desired.
  • Formatting for dates (e.g., collection date) in batch registration templates has been relaxed. Acceptable date formats now include YYYY-MM-DD and MM/DD/YYYY. Date cells no longer have to be formatted as text.
