    Tracking code: UPD-7631
  • eCounsel only supported two decimal places for the LINE_ITEM_TAX_TOTAL field when importing tax amounts for line items using the LEDES 98BI file format. eCounsel now supports up to four decimal places. 
    Tracking code: UPD-7774
  • In a Corridor integration, when an eCounsel user created a new vendor and clicked Activate Vendor, the Wizard to Corridor Website did not display the vendor name correctly.
    Tracking code: UPD-7897
  • When a client rejected a Collaborati vendor approval request in the eCounsel Lobby and then the vendor requested approval again, the Collaborati task in eCounsel would not sync the new request so it would not appear in the Lobby.
    Tracking code: UPD-8166
  • eCounsel matters without a valid player were being synced with Collaborati, causing excessive sync times.
    Tracking code: UPD-8372, UPD-8362


  • In Secretariat, Partnership Int. Distribution Payment Date and Partnership Int. Distribution Declaration Date were stored as character strings, causing searches to fail and return the following error: Conversion failed when converting date and/or time from character string. 
    Tracking code: UPD-7566
  • In Secretariat, in the options for the Entity List page, if a user moved the Internal Number field to the Selected column and then selected a sort order for the field, the system would return an error.

    Tracking code: UPD-7628
  • In Secretariat, committee names that included spaces or special characters did not display correctly on the Base Info tab and the Entities grid. The spaces were replaced with "%20" and other special characters were replaced with symbols.

  • Spaces and special characters were not displaying correctly on the Entity Name column on the Corporate Meeting Wizard.

    Tracking code: UPD-7655

    Tracking code: UPD-7789
  • When using Mitratech Office Link, appointments created in Microsoft Outlook did not appear in eCounsel. 
    Tracking code: UPD-8004
  • If an IMAP user created an appointment in Microsoft Outlook and added himself as an attendee, the appointment would appear more than once on the organizer’s Microsoft Outlook calendar. To solve this issue, the Mitratech Office Link Outlook add-in now creates a separate Outlook calendar named Mitratech – Calendar which contains the Suite appointments. 
    Tracking code: UPD-8004

    Important: Suite appointments now appear on the new Mitratech - Calendar and no longer appear on the default Outlook calendar. Users must open the Mitratech - Calendar in order to view Suite appointments. The exception is when an organizer has added himself as an attendee on an appointment, the appointment also appears on his default Outlook calendar.

    Note: If you are using Microsoft Outlook 2016 with an IMAP account and not the default Outlook data file, Outlook does not automatically display the new calendar and the user needs to force Outlook to recognize the new calendar and task folders. In Outlook, right-click the Calendar area on the Calendar pane and click New Calendar. In the Create New Folder dialog box, navigate to and expand the Calendar node so that Mitratech - Calendar is displayed in the tree, and then click Cancel. Repeat this step in the Task pane to force Outlook to recognize the task folder.
  • Microsoft Outlook would occasionally crash when a user copied emails to a folder in the Mitratech Office Link pane. 
    Tracking code: UPD-8056 
  • Creating an appointment in Microsoft Outlook and syncing to eCounsel would return a Null Reference Exception in Outlook.
    Tracking code: UPD-7634
