SharePoint - Office Web Apps

21/04/2017

We are aware of an ongoing issue preventing some users from opening documents in SharePoint Office Web Apps. We are working with our SharePoint team to isolate and resolve this issue.

Please continue to raise any issues you are experiancing with SharePoint on the Bader Helpdesk.

SMS 3.40 - Release

12/04/2017

Update! The SMS update is now live. If there are any issues or feedback please raise a service request via the Bader Helpdesk.

Please note that SMS will be updated on Tue 18 Apr 17 between 1300hrs and 1600hrs and will therefore be offline.

The release notes can be found here.

This release contains large changes to the way SMS looks and feels. The website is now responsive so will display accordingly on different screen sizes and devices.

Due to the very large volume of changes that have been necessary it is not possible for us as a small team to 100% test the system, especially across a variety of devices and platforms. It is therefore possible that some bugs will exist in the system. We would be very grateful if users could highlight these to us by raising a service request so that we can address any issues.

These updates to our technologies and changes are necessary so that we are able to deliver future developments to SMS. Our next milestones are:

All RAFAC Volunteers to have access to BADER Systems via a personal account.

The ability to record unit address and unit postal address.

The ability to record users address history and auto calculation of mileage to unit.

These will provide the groundwork for delivering home to duty claims via SMS.

DII users are reminded that they must access BADER applications via Google Chrome in order to get the best experience of the system.

If there are any issues or feedback please raise a service request via the Bader Helpdesk.

Next SMS Release

04/04/2017

The next release of SMS will contain large changes to the way the system looks and feels. The website is now responsive so will display accordingly on different screen sizes and devices. Currently the functionality remains the same but the design work will form the basis of future developments and allow us to introduce more modern user interfaces.

A Newsletter has been produced capturing these changes and I would encourage you to allow visibility to all users in your AOR. The newsletter can be found here.

Further communications will follow when a release date is known.

If there are any issues or feedback please raise a service request via the Bader Helpdesk.
