From Monday the 29th July 2019 BMC will be making a configuration change which will disable the 'What's New' popup window in the Configuration Manager Dashboard User Interface.


Why are we making this change?

We have had a number of reports from customers that the pop-up window in the Configuration Manager Dashboard UI is causing blocking behaviours in certain circumstances, in order to enable the maxiumum value to be realized by as many customers as possible we are going to disable this blocking behavior.


What does this mean?

When users log in to the BMC CMDB Configuration Manager Dashboard UI, they will NOT receive a 'What's New' popup window highlighting what has changed in the release, please use the 'Walkthroughs' slide out to access in context documentation highlighting 'What's New' for the CMDB.


Will this functionality be reinstated?

We will be working to add a configuration parameter in an upcoming release that will allow organizations to enable or disable this popup for their organization, once this is available we will enable the popup again for those organizations that have the configuration set appropriately.
