For more information on this subject please refer to Getting feedback via User Sentiment Surveys, where you can find a complete end-to-end use case on creating, deploying, responding and processing responses to User Sentiment Surveys.
      • The 1E Experience score displayed on the Overview page includes user sentiment values, please refer to The Scores for more information.

      • The Sentiment page lets you view the User Sentiment score on its own and drill down to view users and monitor their feedback and pain points.

    • A Users page is provided that lets you get information on the end-users on the devices in your network. Please refer to the Users page for more details.
    • Customize the 1E Experience pages to view the interactive charts you want to focus on - including the display of the results from your User Sentiment surveys on the Sentiment page.

    • No features or feature changes added in this maintenance release.

    The main AppClarity 7.1 release contained the following features:

    • Works with Tachyon 5.1
    • Windows Server OS LDC
      • New license demand for core based licensing of Windows Server OS (calculated with-in Microsoft Core LDC)

      • Report refresh - ability to refresh reports on individual pages, and the ability to view the status of the last report refresh
      • UI Controls - ability to choose columns as either shown or hidden on individual screens

      • Reclaim

  • Application Migration 3.1

    Features in the Application Migration 3.1.105 maintenance release:

    • Works with Tachyon Platform 5.2
    • No new features in this maintenance release.

    Features in the main Application Migration 3.1 release:

    • Works with Tachyon 5.1
    • Improvements to upgrade rules to support scenarios where the currently installed software has a later version than the one listed in the upgrade rule - In versions prior to Application Migration 3.1, it was possible that upgrade rules had issues when the application they were trying to upgrade on the client devices were later versions than the ones they were trying to upgrade to.  To remedy these unpredictable and unwanted results, now if an upgrade rule tries to downgrade an application then it will be ignored. For more details please refer to Adding a rule to upgrade an application: What happens in upgrade scenarios where the currently installed version of the application is later than the target application?
    • Application and Package installation success has been improved  - this handles scenarios where the administrator has forgotten to check the Allow this application to be installed from the Install Application task sequence action without being deployed checkbox, which is a prerequisite for migrating an application. In practice, it was a common error for administrators to overlook this, which - in earlier versions - led to the Task Sequence failing. In Application Migration 3.1, if the administrator forgets to set the checkbox, a warning is now displayed that lets the administrator continue and Application Migration sets the option automatically. For more details please refer to Getting started with Application Migration: Auto Install for Configuration Manager Applications and Packages
    • Multiple exclusion of applications is now supported from the Installations page - please refer to Managing product exclusions.
  • Patch Success 1.2.104
    • No changes to this application for this release.
