February 2018 Release Notes

For February of 2018, Cloud FastPath is excited to announce a number of exciting updates. With upgrades in our support of Google Drive, power additions to the user interface, and new ways to map accounts and permissions among other items, Cloud FastPath is more efficient and effective than ever in migrating your data to the cloud platform that best suits your business, and helping you make the most of your files and information. For a more thorough look at what’s new, read below!

Google Drive 

  • We now support migrating users and permissions in bulk to and from Google Drive.  The new Administrator / Service account system can be used to perform all of the usual Account & Permission Mapping functions.
  • We have added support for Team Folders on Google Drive.

View-Only Users

  • It is now possible to invite users to a Cloud FastPath account with view-only access.  This is useful for allowing stakeholders to review in-app reports and analytics.  Account administrators can enable and disable “edit” rights at will; edit rights are required to configure and run jobs and deploy POPs.

Guided Windows App Invitation

  • When inviting new users to a CFP account, you now have the option to provide the user with step by step instructions on installing our Windows App.  This simplified workflow enables partners who are performing file server migrations on behalf of an end customer to streamline their on-boarding process.

Account & Permission Mapping

  • Conflicts have been separated into their own spreadsheet tab, separate from Paths
  • There is a new option to exclude conflicts below a specified directory depth
  • A new Skip column for users and groups has been added
  • The legacy APM UI has been removed

User Interface

  • The account users, other accounts, and partner accounts tables are now sortable
  • There is a new “copy and paste” interface to the file and account choosers, where you can paste in sections of a CSV with live validation.  This can be used to select a subset from a large list of accounts or folders.
  • The new user invitation and partner account creation pages have been redesigned

Analytics

  • There is a new exportable Users report as well as additional in-app searching and filtering options for users.

Sources and Targets

  • The Citrix Sharefile adapter now supports file version migration
  • The “Modified By” field is set to the last modifying user when uploading to OneDrive and Sharepoint Online
  • Box Terms of Service warnings are reported in the APM spreadsheet
  • File ACLs are now suppressed for Box targets and not shown in the spreadsheet

Email Alerts

  • Job completion emails now include summary statistics on the number of files moved, number of errors, etc.
