Lighthouse Maintenance

We are in the process of releasing a new version of Lighthouse, La Jolla 4.5.4. This release encompasses numerous software and hardware upgrades.

The release is scheduled for Thursday, June 26th from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM. Lighthouse online will not be available. Lighthouse Virtual users will be notified via the Admin panel.

We've got some new servers that we are rolling over, which means faster load time and better performance!

We've also added a number of new features and fixed some bugs. New features include:

1. Custom Reports- now you can report on the full history of every field
2. Email Notifications - We had to update our email notifications as a result of some recent Microsoft Exchange server settings
3. Major upgrades to our Lighthouse Virtual Appliance, significantly improving the download/update process and catching everyone up to the same version as our SaaS application.

How to Hide Tabs

With our latest release, La Jolla 4.5, we introduce the concept of hiding tabs.

This feature is useful because you can now control which Lighthouse modules your users see. Lighthouse is a robust product and you may not use every tool, so now you can display only the tabs your team uses. This can be done for your entire account or on a per-project or role basis.

You can hide Account and Project level tabs simply by modifying user roles.

To hide Account Tabs:

1. Go to Account > Security > Account Roles

2. Pick the role you want to hide tabs

3. Then either select or deselect the tabs your users can see.

To Hide Project Tabs:

1. Go to 'your project name' > Resources > Roles

2. Pick the role you want to hide tabs

3. Then either select or deselect the tabs your users can see.

That's really about it. Questions?
