  • Memsource Discontinues Support for Internet Explorer 11

    • Q2 2020

    • 1 June

    As of 1st July, 2020, Memsource will discontinue support for Internet Explorer 11. Although users may be able to access and work in Memsource after this date with Internet Explorer 11, they will not be able to receive technical support or take advantage of new features with this browser.

    Users are therefore encouraged to upgrade to one of the supported browsers listed here.

    We understand that this change might inconvenience some users in the short term. Unfortunately, since active development has stopped for Internet Explorer 11, we have found it increasingly difficult to build and maintain the best possible experience for the end-user. We hope that in the long run everyone will benefit from more focused development on modern browsers.

  • Project Template Performance and UX Optimization

    • Q1 2020

    • 24 March

    Opening project template pages now takes significantly less time and they’re easier to work with. Metadata drop-down fields (owner, client, domain, subdomain, cost center, business unit) in project templates now allow the user to narrow the results by typing in the input fields. Data in metadata and provider drop-downs are loaded lazily which means more data is loaded when the user reaches the bottom of the list by scrolling down.
