Important Notes About Patching or Upgrading to 2016 Q2:

  • Version 2016 Q2 is the seventh update following our version naming convention change, and follows version 2016 Q1 (major release 6).
  • Patch versus Upgrade: If you are currently on version 4.7, please follow the Upgrade Guide to move to version 2016 Q2. If you are currently on any version of 5 or 6 (including versions 2014 Q4 - 2016 Q1), please follow the Patch Guide.
  • Test Your Upgrade/Patch: We strongly recommend that you test your patch or upgrade in a test environment before updating your production environment. As always, please backup your database before patching or upgrading.
  • Messaging Service: Customers that are using the Checkbox messaging service in any version prior to 6.3 will need to follow the UpgradeMessagingService.pdf guide located in the Documentation folder. Failure to update the messaging service will cause issues with the application and invitations. Earlier versions of the messaging service are no longer supported by Checkbox 2016 Q2. If you updated the messaging service with any patch after 6.2, you are all set.
