We are excited to announce the Evolve Contact Suite (ECS) v5.3.0 release that includes new capabilities for our customers that will be available on July 26, 2020.

What do you need to know?

  1. Any changes made to your environment must be fully deployed via Setup before the upgrade and previously deployed versions will no longer be available after the upgrade. 
  2. If your organization is staffed during the maintenance, they will experience a short period of downtime (less than 10 minutes). 
  3. Users will get a notification on their first login after the upgrade to accept and download the newest update. Please instruct your users to accept the application update. 
  4. The first time your users launch an application, they may receive a message from Microsoft Defender SmartScreen about an “unrecognized app”. This message is related to the use of a new certificate during the software development process. Please encourage your users to select Run anyway if they receive this message. 
  5. All users will need to install Microsoft .NET 4.8 in the next few weeksECS applications rely upon Microsoft’s .NET framework and the next release (ECS v5.3.1) requires version 4.8 of the .NET software. Please ensure that all client workstations are upgraded to this version using the link at the top of the ECS Application portal. Microsoft .NET v4.8 is compatible with both ECS v5.3.0 and ECS v5.3.1, therefore this upgrade should be performed after ECS v5.3.0 is released. Note: ECS v5.3.1 applications will not operate without v4.8 of Microsoft .NET software.
