Checkbox Survey Version 5.3 Upgrade Now Available for Server Customers

We are excited to announce that Checkbox Server customers who are on version 4.7 now have access to upgrade to our latest release, Checkbox 5.3. The upgrade is available in the Products area of our customer support site for all customers with active support contracts. Customers who have questions about the term of their support contracts or who would like to renew their support should email or call 866-430-8274 (Int’l 1-617-715-9605).

All customers who plan on upgrading to Checkbox 5.3 should first review our New Features Guide, our updated server requirements and the version 5.3 upgrade instructions, which are bundled with the upgrade files on the customer support site. We also highly recommend testing the upgrade on a test server before upgrading any production environment(s).
