    2016.1 (demo)
    1Date French format is not valid.

    When I create a task in French and choose a date by clicking on the calendar, the date format is not accepted.

    It says "Le format de date indiqué n’est pas valide."

    2French translation

    "Votre affichage" is not a good translation for "you view". I would say "Page personnalisée", "Votre page".

    Not every texts are translated.

    3Share image collectionWhen you share an image collection and either add it to an RTE doc using the link button or just paste it from clipboard, the resulting link goes to Activity. With the link button URL it has the collection ID in the URL but URL is malformed.Feb 06, 2016John Schwiller

    JDNS 06 Feb: Case #405379 raised.

    JDNS 07 Feb: Attached to my JIVE-66829 Scheduled for 2016.1.2.

    4Title changes when attachment changed

    When you change an attachment, say to add a new version of a file, the doc title resets to the new file name even if the title was manually changed when the doc was created.


    Update: I think I've worked out what happened, reported it on two cases, and mea culpa as they were trying to fix a prob I reported.


    Namely that when you change the file the dropzone didn't replay the new filename. When I now read the JIRA title for that one it looks like it was asking for the title to be changed. Hopefully both regressions can be fixed fairly quickly.

    7A page with 4 Superlist tiles setup at 2015.3 no longer displays the content or the title

    Strangely the defaut landing page in the same group with a single superlist does display. Editing the non-displaying tile shows the title and URL has not been lost.

    Update: Worked it out myself. 2016.1 has given-up on being able to cope with filtering on fieldnames with one or more spaces when you grab a URL for use in a Superlist tile. They worked ok on 2015.3 but now even when you reconstruct the Superlist URL, say from Browse People filtered on my field name, then the pasted URL is incomplete hence the tile doesnt work. I needed to edit out the spaces in my custom field to myfieldname

    8Content Evolution - unable to add rows to a table

    When trying to add rows to a table using the option below the table, anytime I click the arrow to change the number of rows, I see the option change (flash) to 2, but then it disappears, and I can not ever choose "Go".  Maybe this is my browser, but I have tried it on multiple content types and have the same issue.

    16Category URL structure has changed and now uses more character encoding changing hard coded links

    If like us, you use carousels to jump to filtered views of content (with a hard url link) this change of url character encoding for category names breaks your links

    GS 09 Feb: Case #405640 raised

    JDNS 10 Feb: Ouch! - well at least the data is still there when you turn content evolution off, so it's 'just' a template problem.

    22Calendar tab doesn't show content

    The Calendar tab is empty and shows a bugged header 'February YYYY'. The Events tab in the same space shows lots of events scheduled.

    This is the same #18 issue already raised by Ashish Trivedi. I registered it again to show that we have the same issue and to create a support case.

    It seems to be related to the S1 issue JIVE-67691.

    Update: February 10th, 1p.m. - the Calendar tab now is working properly.

    Explanation from Jive: 'This is actually the result of a Jive Defect and I've associated the bug with this case. The bug has already been resolved and the fix will be pushed out automatically in early March.  In the mean time, I've executed a work around so the calendar should now display properly.'

    Jive Rewards no longer enabled post 2016.1 upgrade

    In our Jive-x instance, Jive Rewards is no longer enabled post-upgrade to 2016.1. Waiting instructions from Support before doing anything. I hope that the data is all still there. Is this normal behavior? The Add-On Installed list shows that it is installed.

    Keeley  see  for similar. Curtis' response to our case in Nov -  "Tracked down the root cause, your site was still configured to 'own' advanced gamification.  I turned that off, which should stop your site from trying to install advanced gamification every release"

    30Featured Content tile not working with blog posts

    In Jive-n, the Featured Content tile is not updating properly. When you feature/unfeature blog posts nothing changes in the tile. Tried deleting and reselecting - same behavior. It looks like it might be limited to blog posts that can't be featured/unfeatured. I haven't done full testing but I was able to unfeature a document and that was properly removed from the tile.


    John Schwiller: OK it looks like it's a Content Evolution issue. Turn CE off and add/remove works fine. Turn CE ON and it is broken

    31Categories widget offers wrong links

    The Categories widget is offering wrong links to content categories. When I compared the links with the ones shown on the contents tab it was easy to see the reason: the widget is assembling the URL with categories starting with capital letters.


    at the widget - .../content?filterID=contentstatus%5Bpublished%5D~category%5BEvents%5D

    at the contents tab - .../content?filterID=contentstatus%5Bpublished%5D~category%5Bevents%5D

    I provided a workaround using a Formatted Text widget where I typed the correct URLs.

    37Jive Rewards with Content Evolution Turned on

    When selecting discussions as a content type for a quest to create content, you are are not awarded points when creating a question. There is no option to select Question in the quests. This is a high priority bug filed under PBOX-1488.


    JDNS: well a quest to create a discussion is fulfilled by creating a question. Can see some merit in it being more granular but don't think I'd make it a very high priority. Guess it depends on the use case. Would you want major differences in points for creating/replying to a discussion | question?

    40Jive Rewards > Strategies: no points awards for creating questions or discussions

    In Jive Rewards, Questions and Discussions are not awarding points as part of an enabled strategy, which is the way that points are awarded continuously in the system. Jive Support says this is happening when Content Evolution is turned on AND when it is turned off.  They are however awarding points as part of an custom quest, where upon completion will award the point value of the quest one time only. We are putting our production load of questions from a previous system on hold because the users won't get points for asking questions when we load them in (or at least that is the current working theory). Go-live for our new community is getting pushed.

    48aA user who is deactivated in the Rewards Console is reactivated incorrectly

    I've found two ways to trigger this:

    1. An admin resets their p/w in the Admin Console. Doesn't seem to be triggered if the user changes their p/w in the UI. Only seems to happen once in the admin console and is not repeatable for a particular user - although has been observed with at least 5 accounts.

    Edit: split see 48b

    2. When the user logs in to the UI that is enough to remove their deactivated status according to the Rewards Console.
