New in FirstClass Server

  • The Server's handling of tasks for audits, batch admin and the mail queue is greatly improved in this version. There are multiple tasks for the mail queue, speeding up mail delivery on larger servers, and separate tasks for batch admin and audits, so that these do not interfere with the mail queue. While hardware performance still needs to be taken into account, the benefit to servers with high levels of email should be significant.
  • Server's notification table now grows dynamically. A specific upper limit is no longer required on the system profile. The table is now saved to disk and reloaded at startup.
  • Support for the new FirstClass Suite license has been added to define a site as a FirstClass site where Social Workplace can also be enabled.
FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 4 of 33).jpg
  • Administrators and subadministrators will be able to log in while logins are disabled.
  • New locales have been added to the time zone system (Bishkek, Almaty, and Nuuk).
  • The default number of sessions included with FirstClass has been increased from 250 to 500. For sites that require
  • concurrencies beyond 500 users, a Hi-Cap (500-2,500) or VLS (> 2,500) license is required.
  • The Session Monitor grows as sessions are created, rather than filling the entire list. Empty sessions at the time of opening the monitor are not shown.
  • There is new session billing for both network sessions and remote session licensing. For regular users in FirstClass 11 multiple logins from a variety of devices will be shown in the Session Monitor, however only one network session will be counted against that user. This means that the concurrent login capacity of a site has increased for version 11, particularly for standard sites where the concurrent network session capacity is now 500. By the same token multiple logins by users classed as remote users will only cost one remote session license for login. This will ensure that Social Workplace sites that invite external candidates to use the system, and FirstClass Sites that use session licensing actively are not using up their remote sessions too quickly if their users are permitted to log in via mobile devices.
  • Maximum indexing word length extended significantly The ability to retrieve passwords using batch admin can be turned off. This is a one time irreversible change to the system.
  • An enterprise profile for FirstClass and OTSW has been introduced. This is an organizational unit based hierarchy representing the organization as a whole. Based on the OUs a user is a member of, their organizational position can be represented in OTSW. NOTE: This process is irreversible.
Server Features for Open Text Social Workplace (OTSW)
  • A "Public container" checkbox has been added to the Container Template form. This should be checked for the standard group "Public Community".62911_115920_0.png
  • The server supports adding a number of new Pulse feed entries including the creation of new communities, new users logging in for the first time and users posting new blog entries. These will all feature in the OTSW 1.1 Pulse, which can be filtered to include only entries from people you are following, all users or your own entries.
  • Feed entries which have reached their expiry limit, but are part of a thread are retained until the entire thread has expired, rather than removing individual items from a feed.
Privilege Group (User Group) changes New checkbox: Mobile client
  • Mobile client is now an access checkbox split apart from the FirstClass client as a privilege on User Groups and the User Information Form. This applies to all devices that support the FirstClass Mobile client such as iOS devices, etc.
  • After an upgrade, when the server starts the first time, it will copy the state of the FirstClass client checkbox to the Mobile client field so that server behavior remains unchanged in the absence of administrator intervention.

Improved OU popup list
  • The OU popup list now shows a user's OU groups first (as opposed to non OU groups)
FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 8 of 33).jpg

Server Monitor changes
  • The server now tracks the peak usage for user sessions and remote user sessions, and includes these on the Users tab of the Server Monitor.
FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 9 of 33).jpg

Calendar alias changes
  • When subscribing someone to your calendar the alias will go directly into their calendar, as opposed to onto their desktop and will be renamed to the calendar alias owner’s name.
FirstClass Scripting
Added the ability to populate a Résumé for a group using the PUT command
PUT ABOUT <GroupName> <FieldID> <FieldType> <FieldValue>...
PUT ABOUT "Web Services" 1000 14 1978 1001 0 "Testing 1-2-3"

New in Internet Services

Features and Enhancements
  • Each protocol now has an option to bind that protocol to one or more specific IP address. If a given protocol is bound to specific IPs then IS will only open listeners for that protocol on those IPs instead of on all IPs available on the machine. This increases the security level of IS.
  • Using the new PROXY tab on the Basic Internet Setup form it is now possible to enable FCP proxy for sites who do not want to open port 510 directly to the FirstClass Server. Internet services can then be used as a TCP proxy for the FC client (UDP not supported). When this is configured Internet Services listens on port 510 and passes data to the FCS acting as a proxy and keeping the FCServer on the "clean" side of the firewall.
  • Further security has been added on the Advanced Mail - SMTP - Authentication Tab, by no longer allowing plain text authentication for SMTP on non secure connections.
  • Additional support has been added for the new OTSW templates.
  • NNTP support has been removed. A pre-FC11 IS cluster can be run against the FC11 Server to continue supporting NNTP if desired.
  • A new feature known as the ContentSite has been added to protect your users against erroneous files being downloaded via the Web interface. Essentially this can be used to point at a second site, where the Read Only status has been set so that downloading a file with malicious content will have no effect.
  • New mail rules parameters have been added to further enhance protection against spam. These new parameters will better detect SMTP spam servers.
  • New debug measures have been implemented for SMTP to allow administrators to turn on and off SMTP debugging for shorter periods of time.
  • A number of changes were made to better support POP and IMAP clients, as well as smart mobile devices.
  • Improved Social Workplace templates have been added to support the new Pulse, enterprise profile and community information features.
  • Improved FC templates to reflect calendar changes made in the client interface.
  • The default idle timeout for users logged in over HTTP can now be set in the Headermatch, and will override group settings to decrease the idle timeout (it cannot be used to increase the timeout).
  • FCIS LDAP server can now return the UserID instead of the ClientID for the UID attribute.
  • On the Advanced Web and File form there is a new option which now allows the site to scan uploaded files when they are uploaded via HTTP using the configured Symantec scan engine in Advanced Mail - Anti-Virus tab. This scans HTTP uploads only for both FC and OTSW logins.
  • Support for a new User Headermatch document has been added, allowing administrators to customize a headermatch document for their site which will not be overwritten during an FC upgrade.
New in FirstClass Client

Features and Enhancements
  • Display of HTML messages is the major new feature to have been added to the FC11 Client. The FirstClass Client will now render HTML messages with a high level of fidelity. There are some configurable security measures still in place to prevent/allow malicious images being delivered.
  • A View In Browser button is added to the message form for external messages in cases where the client is still prevented from rendering the message correctly. The attach0.html attachment is now hidden as a result of this new feature and will not display in the message form or in the List View of a container.
  • A new clickable yellow bar in a received message form now indicates that some images have been blocked for safety, and can be viewed by clicking on the bar. This can be overwritten by the user using their Preferences to "Always show Embedded Images".FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 12 of 33).jpg
  • The attachment list has been reworked so that multiple attachments are displayed on one line.
  • New options have been added to the Reply menu - Reply "From Conference With Quote" and Reply "To Conference With Quote".
  • A new search capability has been added, allowing a user to select text in a FirstClass message body, right-click, and open a server search for the selected text. This will search for the selected text in the container (and its subcontainers) where the message resides.
  • To facilitate large mail outs, multiple e-mail addresses or plain- text names can be pasted into the To/Cc/Bcc fields, mailing lists, etc. The list should be semi-colon or tab-delimited.
  • There have been a number of improvements to the visual appearance of the calendar including new color and week organizer options, available through the Preferences.
  • Within calendar events, the form has been modified slightly to allow most of the required actions to take place on the primary Event tab.FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 13 of 33).jpg
  • When closing the event window (not clicking Save And Close) upon making a new event, there's now a prompt to save, save as tentative, don’t save or cancel.
  • An event can now be closed and "Saved as Tentative" to store it without it appearing as a booked time in a user's calendar.
  • Added new types of repeats for greater flexibility: you can choose every n days/weeks/months/years/hours/minutes.
New in Social Workplace
Several features and enhancements have been made in Open Text Social Workplace 1.1

Features and Enhancements
  • The home screen has been enhanced with the introduction of the Pulse. The Pulse enables users to effortlessly build connections with each other and clearly illustrates the high activity level of the system. As users microblog, post blogs, and create public communities, the Pulse is automatically updated. A user also has the ability to filter the view of the Pulse to just the My People List or personal contributions.
  • A system can support multiple Pulse containers to build relevant community connections within a very large system.
FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 14 of 33).jpg
  • Instant Messaging has been added. An IM can be initiated from the My People list or from the mini profile and will not disappear if one participant loses their connection or logs out.
  • New community setup includes more icons to choose from and there will be a range available for customization.
FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 15 of 33).jpg
  • The Community Information section reveals the community type, the name of the creator, names of moderators and the number of internal and external users. The community indicates the names of the most recent visitors or the names of the recently invited.
¥FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 15 of 33)-1.jpg
  • The Community Setup action offers users choices for keeping up with activity within a community.FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 16 of 33).jpg
  • While the appearance of the Document tab is largely unchanged,the file uploader has been improved; progress bars have been added; multiple uploads are now supported; improved interface for comments and history.FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 16 of 33)-1.jpg
  • In the Wiki tab, the list of wikis is now a full page view.FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 17 of 33).jpg
  • A History of incremental changes is now maintained for each wiki. Users have the ability to scan through the versions or compare any version to the most current version.FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 17 of 33)-1.jpg
  • There are new and easy ways to share content with people, other communities, or by a permalink address as well as connecting existing content from within a community, to other communities and user profiles.FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 18 of 33).jpgFirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 18 of 33)-1.jpg
Editor enhancements
  • A new HTML editor includes many new features including HTML tables, full screen editing, bulleted and numbered lists.
FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 19 of 33).jpg

  • There is now a choice of implementing two different Profiles:
  • The default Profile uses the content provided by the user
  • The Enterprise Profile can be enabled for all users or only for selected groups.FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 19 of 33)-1.jpg
  • The Enterprise Profile shows an organizational hierarchy, and by clicking on a group name, the user is presented with information about the group on the left hand side and a list of people in the group on the right hand.
Custodian (optional)
The custodian is a FirstClass Application Services app developed to
manage OTSW users and communities.FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 20 of 33).jpg

Custodian Features
  • The custodian application can show items on user desktop including communities, people, owned communities, pulsed items, flagged items and if necessary modify or delete any of the items for the user.
  • Sending invitations, sending new passwords, suspending accounts can all be managed by the Custodian.
  • From a community perspective the Custodian can search for all of the different communities which have been created (regardless of their type), and change owners of community, add moderators and subscribers, rename the community, change the icon, invite people from a directory or change community type if required. New configuration capability for outgoing invites.FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 21 of 33).jpg

FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 23 of 33).jpg

FirstClass Mobile for iOS
With FirstClass Mobile for iOS, iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad users can take FirstClass with them on the road and have all of the power of FirstClass in the palm of their hands - delivering a true "anytime, anywhere" mobile collaboration and social workplace experience.

Features and Enhancements - FirstClass Mobile for iOS

  • Integrated support for FirstClass calendars and contacts – separate ActiveSync links are no longer required.
  • One tap access to the Social Workplace Pulse, Communities, and People.
  • The new FCX Instant Messaging supports Social Workplace Chat and the XMPP protocols.
  • FirstClass Mobile now defaults to displaying signatures at the end of posts. This can be turned off by removing the signature text.
  • The choice to use CAST encryption for the communications link is now user settable on a per server basis.
  • A Save Password? dialog is now presented when an account password is newly entered, to save it or not.

New in FirstClass Synchronization Services
Sync Services allows bi-directional syncing of contact, calendar event, and task data. We have enhanced our “Sync” support for mobile devices with the following new features and enhancements.

Features and Enhancements
  • FCSS is now supported on 64-bit platforms and now supports SSL.
  • Provided support for Open Text Social Workplace servers to supply contacts from My People into a separate folder on a device.
  • Support for a number of features such as WIPE DEVICE, contact picture, multiple email addresses, Group Support, depending on the protocol being used (SyncML or AstraSync).
  • Added calendar event filtering from device settings as specified in ActiveSync. Filtering is done on events:
  • 2 weeks ago
  • 1 month ago
  • 3 months ago
  • 6 months ago
  • Added support for enumeration of containers that have subfolders with same name.
  • All entries synced from the device are now stamped with a "last sync time" so that they do not get picked up on the next sync.
  • Sync Services now provides Mailbox notifications to the user on sync errors and on new device registration.
  • All sessions and connections are now flushed at midnight logrollover.
  • FCSS has extended maximum event note length to 20K and contact note to 4K.
  • Added iPod as device that supports subcontainers.
  • Provisioned for iPad to support sub-containers and correct contact picture aspect ratio.
  • Reminders are not synced on punch-through calendar events. This avoids alerts on the phone for events that are not owned by the phone user.
  • Fix for newly registered device to send contact pictures on initial sync.
  • Implemented device capabilities table. The table can be populated with new entries via file and is added during slow sync.
New in Archive Services
There are two new fields for FirstClass Archive Services controlling the retention period of archived content:

Never Remove any Content is a new User Group setting which tells Archive services never to remove any content for members of that particular group. This setting will override all other retention periods set.

Use Previous Retention Period for existing content. This setting comes into play when modifying the retention period for a Group of people who's content is archived. When a User Group has this turned on, each existing archived container in the Archive Server is stamped with the previous retention period and newly archived content will be stamped with the modified retention period. This allows administrators to change expiry periods for groups without affecting the expiry of already archived content.
FirstClass 11 What New.pdf (page 28 of 33).jpg

New in FirstClass Voice Services
FirstClass Voice Services is a powerful suite of voice and fax capabilities that is designed to replace expensive, proprietary voicemail systems and stand-alone fax machines with one centrally- managed multimedia messaging system.

Recent versions of Voice Services provide direct support for VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), facilitating direct connections to IP PBXs and VoIP endpoints using SIP (Session Initiation Protocol). Integration with legacy circuit switched PBXs will only be supported using Dialogic Media Gateways (DMG). Going forward there will only be SIP based versions.

In FirstClass 11, Voice Services has the following improvements:
  • The latest code is now built upon the same source stream as the more recent services. This provided an opportunity to permit longer userIDs and the added benefit of optimization of channel handling code.
  • Now runs on Windows 2008 and 2003 32-bit.30 | What’s New in FirstClass 11
New in FirstClass Application Services
This is the second release of FirstClass Application Services 4.0 for Windows. The operating system and hardware requirements specified for FirstClass 10.0/11.0 server apply for FCAS 4.

Features and Enhancements
  • A number of new objects have been added to FCAS (HTTP, XML and Binary) allowing further integration with external products.
  • An additional Server Directory object has been added, allowing FCAS full access to the FC Directory, retiring the requirement to use FC Scripting to access the FC Directory.
  • The option to "act as user logged in" has been added, to allow or limit the applications access to the Directory and FC content if necessary (based on Directory restrictions or permissions assigned to the user).
  • The statistics file will now identify actions performed by the user via FCAS so help distinguish application actions from normal actions.
  • Further details on the full list of additions and changes to FCAS are available in the product release notes.
New in FirstClass Directory Services
The major changes are related to integration with Open Text Social Workplace, solid support for OpenLDAP, and executables for 64 bit only platforms including Linux, Mac and Windows.
  • FCDS now has field proven OpenLDAP (OS X) integration which introduced posixGroup membership and extended filtering capability at the time of account replication.
  • FCDS has two new methods to replicate a remote tree which has proven very useful at sites that do not have a single root OU for replication.
  • The requirement to have a fully formed OU tree on FirstClass has been relaxed. If a user OU tree is missing one or more OUs to the root DN at time of creation, FCDS will create OUs on FirstClass if necessary.
  • FCDS is now Social Workplace aware. A checkbox on the admin form now directs FCDS to replicate LDAP info to the correct FirstClass field and hidden user profile form.
General New Features
  • New setup option to update all user fields when modifying DN in Replication/Advanced tab.
  • OUs are now added to the path during replication if they exist in the FCNS directory.
  • All groups/OUs including those not under any Directory Services leveling scheme are retrieved at startup and are treated as FC groups.
  • Unlisted/Deleted users now have the alias field cleared to allow the creation of a new user with same alias.
  • FC Control Panel (FCSCTL64.EXE) is now used to install FCDS as a service, eliminating the need for server registration.
  • The DS Monitor has been enhanced to contain extra menu commands needed to fully control Directory Services from the Monitor.
  • User email address is now considered a multi-valued attribute.
  • The telephone number can be replicated into Voice DN when the command line parameter /USEVOICEDN is found.
  • Authentication connection re-use timeout is now configurable. This is a new entry in the Authentication tab which controls the authentication connection pool usage. This feature provides fine tuning of connection pool re-usage with external LDAP servers that have a time limit on any given connection.
  • There are a number of new configurations on the DS config form to fine tune DS's interaction with external databases. See product release notes and Admin Help for further details.
  • All User Groups that the user is a member of are now preserved even after replication. Groups which are not replicated OUs are no longer removed from the User Information Form.
  • A new Custom Attribute field is available which can be mapped to any field in the LDAP server.
  • When users are replicated from LDAP and created on the OTSW server FCDS creates an OTSW profile for each user in its Shared Documents folder.
  • The OTSW profile is populated with users Name, Phone number, Email, Cell number, Company, Department, Title, Manager and Address.
  • User's email address is not placed in the UIF to prevent interference with OTSW configuration.

Fixes and Changes (from last version build)

  • Inreased disk definition version to 11.  Warning: Once you run Server 11.0 B946 and above you can no longer roll back to any previous build. You must have a 11.0 license in order to login to this server as anything but an administrator account. Subsequent builds can be rolled back only as far as B946 and above.
  • Change to not update the header version when updating new fields. (Caused existing attachment names to be incorrectly translated).
  • Expanded group names (from 32 to 63) in the SysIDTable.
  • Improved behavior as a Windows service, particularly with respect to providing progress signals to the OS after being asked to terminate.
  • Changes to report the number of OTSW accounts to the Update Server.
  • In previous servers, at login time, the server would auto-open the mailbox for any logins by an SMTP platform, or by everything except the IS account, or other logins using IS platforms.  This has been changed to also exclude auto-opening the mailbox for Content Services platform logins.
  • Fix for MTA requeue & hold problem where entries may be lost from the list.
  • Fix flagging issue when the Trash Can is used to search for deleted items.
  • Subject details in the stats log when Message Delivery is on looks broken when the subject is in Japanese (Mojibake) characters.
  • Fixed problems with extended characters at the truncation point. Specifically, this fixes Japanese mojibake char sets in the window title when pressing Permissions button on conf groups.
  • Fixed window titles and subjects for some objects that could support longer than 31-byte names getting truncated and/or Japanese mojibake sets at 31-characters.
  • Fixed problems pressing buttons on group forms that prevented the button implementation from finding the correct group data when the name was longer than 31 bytes. Fixes 1048s opening group models, and similar problems (also likely problems opening rules and resources for such groups, etc).
  • Fixes for gateways that need WarnLogoff notifications.  Mailbox deletions are now tracked even when the mailbox is not held open.  Mini-audits should be triggered correctly when a mailbox-based gateway logs off, or when the number of deleted items exceeds the threshold.  Only the mailbox-based session should trigger this.
  • New intertask notification system that allows user sessions to be notified when subobjects change.  For performance reasons, this is currently disabled on the desktop (may be enabled in a future release but for now the desktop still has a 2 minute "tinkle")
  • Search crash fixed
  • Performance improvement for startup
  • Fixed a problem that could have resulted in a requeued messages getting archived again, or even possibly having a portion or all of the recipients processed again.
  • The server now enforces the appropriate sharing-related privileges when trying to add a subscriber.  Currently only called when trying to insert a new subscriber.
  • Fixed crash when attempting to assign a value to a NULL parameter.
  • Fixed crash for error case when attempting to send a message.
  • URIs generated for use in email notifications as part of OTSW are now properly encoded.
  • Change to properly recognize the SingleMatch case when the potential of more records in subsequent pages is verified.
  • [Linux] Fixed problems calculating the memory statistics that could lead to inflated values, resulting in inappropriate memory engineering at startup time.  May resolve some cases where applications were able to exhaust all available memory (seen in IS).
  • [Linux and OSX] Simplified the obtaining of memory statistics, removing most error cases and making the results more as expected.
  • Fix to avoid expiring messages from the IS mailbox during a single container audit.
  • Audit (and other similar) issues relating from changes to how sessions are allocated.
  • Better reporting when adjusting a user's unread tracking.
  • Suppress Service audits at shut down time.
  • Audit: Remove mailbox from SysIDTable diagnostic message now includes FID of record being removed.
  • Fixed recycle check to correctly identify an account's mailbox.
  • Fixed crash during audit as the server iterates through files in a folder looking for subdirectories.
FirstClass® Scripting (Batch Admin)
  • Added Services notification when a directory changed has been made using the PGADD and PGDEL commands.
  • Fix to import attachments with names longer than 31 characters.
Indexed Search
  • Indexed search disabled for Library (archive), VLS and personal servers.
  • Added the ability to Index a group resume and retrieve a hit during the search phase.
  • Search drops back to old-style search if the index cannot handle the query type or terms.
  • Search more aggressive about removing items from the index that were not encountered during the audit.

FirstClass Internet Services

Major features and fixes in this release

• Added support for user.headermatch files.
• New Windows application icon.
• Added a new auth field "appplatformtype", which can be used to specify the FCP sub-platform.
• SMTP: Properly implemented support for the rules.SMTPDebug document. Added configuration output for mail rules. Translate any non-UTF8 characters in the altbody.
• Fixed retrieval of unsent messages, used by the IMAP FETCH command.
• Fix for Mojibake in inbound SMTP message from Hotmail (up to an 8K line length).
• Added support for the IMAP UNSELECT extension.
• POP3 Server: The POP3 server now supports sending plain text & html output even for AltBody content.  At present, this is enabled by default for testing, but will be changed to disabled by default but configurable via the Advanced Mail form before release.
• IMAP: Changes similar to those made in POP3 to support text/plain where appropriate.
• HTTP: Added several new canned objtype/subtype filters for list views (filestorage, typedfolders, regularfolders, typedconferences, regularconferences), both to URL params & in the HeaderMatch DAV filter options
• HTTP: Changed the default DAV filter to files, subtypeless conferences & folders and file storage folders
• HTTP: Added two new HeaderMatch options: containerview and defaultsortgroup
• HTTP: Added a new formatting argument to <X-FC-RESOURCE>, "LOCATION" which will output the location where IS is pulling a given resource from in the form "<where the resource lives>:<name of resource file>".  This can be used to, among other things, determine what language file is in use for a given resource.
• HTTP: Added some new HeaderMatch options to set the default HTML body input format and to auto-set the "KeepNames" flag for template sets that use modern nameval.
• HTTP: Fixed several problems when using unique session URLs
• Updated session monitor/task monitor schema code.
• Added support for the new calendar repeat fields.
• Added the ability to 'see' bad RCPT TO addresses in mail rules. Also add the predefined $LastSMTPError variable which returns the last SMTP protocol error. Rejected relay recipients set this variable to 530, for example.
• Added the ability to override the default HTTP timeout on a per hit basis using HeaderMatch: timeout = <minutes>. <minutes> is limited to values of 1 to 60 inclusive. Default value is 1 minute.
• Added support in the LDAP server for returning the userid instead of the ClientID for the UID attribute. Returning the userid has a noticeable negative effect on performance. In advance of the necessary change to the Advanced Directory form, this feature can be turned on and off with the following Batch Admin commands:
        // Batch admin script to set LDAP UID handling to UserID
        PUT "Internet Services:Advanced Directory" 1316 6 1
        // Batch admin script to set LDAP UID handling to ClientID (default)
        PUT "Internet Services:Advanced Directory" 1316 6 0
• Force Filter documents to be reloaded when the gateway connection fails..
• Added some code to HTTPMail to convert documents with legacy charsets and empty bodies to Unicode on save.
• Added antivirus scanning to HTTP uploads. Uses the Scan Engine configuration from the Advanced Mail/Antivirus configuration, plus a new checkbox in the Advanced Web & File/HTTP/Access configuration.
• Logging: Ignore bogus return values from SADateString and SATimeString, which caused only the date part to be printed in log lines.
• Inbound SMTP: Fixed a problem with trailing 0xfa characters if the text/html part had unacceptable parse error(s).

Known Issues

  • The POP3 and IMAP servers do not support attached FC objects.
  • Documents created via the web clients will not be created in UTF-8 on servers with network stores that are older than 9.1.  An update to Object Templates will be required to fix this issue in the future.

Currently this website is being updated and will be pushed over to the new FirstClass 12 Web Services. For the next couple months our new websites will be under development as we run real world tests of the new FirstClass API. We do apologize for anything that does not line up.
