Major Changes

Code3 Strategist 2.9.1 is a maintenance release to address problems and inconveniences identified by customers within the first few months after the 2.9 release, which contained significant new functionality, including Windows™-based dashboard capabilities, improved data import facilities and unlimited custom field definitions.

Known Limitations

The following items are known issues and limitations that affect the 2.9.1 release. These are generally
existing issues that we have not had time to address in this version. Impact of these issues is generally
minor:

  1. Conditional behavior based on the cancel flag has been corrected. However, the initial response and return to quarters operations CANNOT be conditionalized. If they are, the simulator will report
    “Invalid attempt to set time backwards” errors and any affected calls will not be included in simulator output. It is possible to conditionalize intermediate behavior (e.g. remaining on scene, transporting a patient, etc) based upon cancellation flags.

Specific Changes

The following is a list of changes included in the 2.9.1 release.

  1. Added import-thresholding on unit time intervals to importer. I.e., it is now possible to reject “outlier” data on unit responses, such as turnout times over 5 minutes. (Issue #3776)
  2. Corrected cancel-flag handling in the simulator (Issue #3818). See limitation above.
  3. Transport/cancellation flags now support values of “0/1”, “Yes/No” and “True/False”. (Issue #3746)
  4. Custom filtering supports unlimited custom fields. (Issue #3737).
  5. Aggregate analysis feature now sorts output alphabetically. (Issue #3724).
  6. Shapefile import handles multipart polygons and better accommodates creation of compound regions. (Issues #3814, #3644).
  7. Eliminated exceptions in import process, improved error handling and messages.
  8. Corrected unit auto-generation during import (Issue #3811)
  9. Corrected missing-data handling for total response time calculations (Issue #3808)
  10. Fixed erroneous ‘unable to find nature code _ in model _’ message in ERF dashboards. (Issue #3807).
  11. Improved diagnostics and audit data for NFPA1710 calculations.
  12. Eliminated exception in Incident Builder (Issue #3796)
  13. Improved audit information in simulator when unable to staff a unit (Issue #3795)
  14. Legacy field CustomContent1 is available in new custom filter feature (Issue #3737)
  15. Eliminated hang when discrete coloring by custom categories (Issue #3782)
  16. Custom field definition now prevents duplicate/invalid custom field names (Issue #3754)
  17. Added error messages for time series displays without any breakdowns (Issue #3762)
  18. Code3Strat – #3746 (Resolved): All standard fields are now visible in import field mappings. (Issue #3746)
  19. Improved process of renaming polygons (Issue #3715)
  20. Improved creation/editing of multi-polygons (Issue #3644)
  21. Import Nature Codes from CSV now handles parent causes and descriptions when selected.
  22. Better error handling when dashboard user forgets to choose a metric for analysis (Issue #3680).
  23. Importer now cleans up temp files in CallFiles folder, default name for
  24. Call Files is a bit more readable. (Issue #3713)
  25. It is now possible to filter datasets datasets by dispatch or call received date. (Issue #3766).
  26. Speed, accuracy and comprehensiveness enhancements to street speed tuner (Issue #3771, #3772).
  27. Corrected problem that prevented response urgency from importing correctly in some cases. (Issue #3635).
  28. Corrected exception in editor’s available times (Issue #3743).
  29. Field mapping form prompts user to save/cancel/continue if he/she chooses to exit prior to saving.
  30. Corrected inconsistent details in importer’s ‘View Results’. (Issue #3681)
  31. Added option to view release notes online when choosing whether to install upgrades. (Issue #3741)
  32. Implemented user-definable time of day bins for dashboards. (Issue #3763)
  33. Implemented user-selected naming of call files generated by importer. (Issue #3758, #3759)
  34. Corrected exception in time series dashboard. Enabled menu items in unit workload display. (Issue #3762).
  35. Alphabetized unassigned resources in model editor (Issue #3753).
  36. Improved route management in OSM speed calculation.
  37. Corrected exception that occurs when importing a CSV file with missing columns.
  38. Eliminated exception in UHU grid copy (Issue #3725).
  39. Implemented reliability percentage calculation for UxU comparison dashboards. Also implemented UxU summaries for single-dataset dashboards. (Issue #3736).
  40. Improved/simplified simulation progress and error messages. (Issue #3732).
  41. Added several metrics for “first qualified unit” to dashboards and reports. (Issue #3730).
