Fulcrum

  • Beacon will not sync with Fulcrum after initial launch. Post launch changes must be done via Fulcrum's website.
  • Multiple sample sources are now supported in Fulcrum
  • Fulcrum quota logic is no longer limited to quick quotas only, but allows logic that references the same question (e.g. you can group ethnicities from specific to general types) [KB: 1469]
  • Qualification and Quota objects are now more descriptive in Fulcrums website (however currently limited in length)
  • Quotas are now created in the same order in Fulcrum as they are in Beacon to enhance readability on Fulcrum's site
  • A new Fulcrum Quota type is available to Fulcrum Automatic surveys that apply only to Fulcrum respondents [KB: 1690]
  • Hispanic ethnicity quotas will be evaluated first to allow nesting with ethnicity groups
  • RISN is now passed by default in redirects

  • Fulcrum Automatic projects will be given the state awarded when set live in Beacon
  • Overlapping sync's of the same project are prevented. If you start a sync and then close the window, and then try and sync while the old sync is still running on the server, you'll see a warning. That warning will attempt to wait out the initial sync for 2 minutes (120 seconds). If the initial sync finishes in that time, it will start a new sync, else it will tell you when the initial sync started and to try again later

Image Manager

  • [18650] Watermark protection can be added to images. [KB: 280, 637]

Programming & Tools

  • The Automated DataBase allows easy integration of list and other data within your survey. No more manual invited.txt management: [KB: 1689]
    • set lists=”mail” to include dat from all your lists
    • set adb=”1” on the sample source you want to manage
    • For full documentation, see the manual.
    • When using a dataSource attribute you can now use dataVirtual=”1” to make the question virtual
    • rather than a real question that is merged when taking the survey
  • When matching data, rather than matching by the value= attribute you can use dataValue to match non-numeric to specific rows; e.g. dataValue=”us,usa,america” will match either of those 3 values to this specific value row
  • The Brightcove view count script has been updated. By running the command here maint/brightcove-collect-views [client] date_start(MM/DD/YYYY) date_end(MM/DD/YYYY) it will display the views for the videos that received views, and also display the length of the video. Video lengths are updated at 1AM. [staff only]
