Put the release dates back in fileconnect
It is now impossible to tell when the various files were released - and which ones I need based on release date. It used to be that if I needed a later version of a product, I could simply look for the dates that matched to ensure I was getting all the files. It also helped in the case of SNAC and SEP since they are intertwined - the rely on each other, and interact internally - to make sure you had matching releases.
Also be consistant. You speak of RU and MP in one set of documents, but the console shows a version number. Either always use one, or always use the other, or better yet, always use BOTH. When going to file connect, I look for a date later than the last download. You've stripped that ability away, so I thought ok, I'll look for a version that is later than 12.1.2015.2015 - and NO, you have them listed by RU and such. So how does one know what that version number matches to?
You can't - there is no easy way.
So, my plea for improvment is to:
Put the FILE RELEASE DATES back into file connect
Get the version numbers straight - always refer to the actual release VERSION. That's how the console shows it, that's how a right-click and properties shows it, skip the RU/MP unless you make the console also show that, or have some sort of road map.
Put the date back. Use VERSION NUMBERS in fileconnect. I have no idea what RU2 MP whatever is when I look in our console. Do I need a later one? I will go check the file dates in connect - oops, they've stripped THAT out TOO! Fileconnect now not only does not have a release date, they don't show what version the file is! Are any of the files out there later than the version I have? Don't have a clue. Console states version 12.1.xxx.xxx, connect does not.
(PS - I could actually check ALL communities and all products below since they are all obtained via connect)
