Update to allow downloading of entire personal library

As of Saturday 26th August 2017, a new feature has been added to the NHS ePortfolios platform that allows users to download the entire contents of their personal library in a single ZIP archive file.  To utilise this feature, firstly browse to your Personal Library as normal, then click the new “Download your library” button:

Initially, the “Download ZIP archive” button will be disabled (greyed-out) as no ZIP archive will have been created. To schedule the creation of a new downloadable archive of your personal library, please click on the “Create ZIP archive” button:

If  the creation of the ZIP archive is pending (or your personal library contains no files), the “Create ZIP archive” button will be disabled (greyed-out).

Please allow up to 24 hours for the ZIP archive to be created. Once the archive has been created – and is available for you to download – an email message will be sent to the email address registered on your account notifying you of this.

To download a ZIP archive that has been created, browse to your Personal Library as normal, click the “Download your library” button, then click the “Download ZIP archive” button as shown below:

 

Please note: The ZIP archive will contain any and all files that you have uploaded into your Personal Library, irrespective of which role you were using when the file was uploaded.  The ZIP archive will not, however, contain any other files you may have uploaded elsewhere, e.g. your profile picture, signature image or any Certificates and Exams.

Update to indicate “undeliverable” ticket request email messages

Due to the volume of email messages that are sent as a result of Ticket Requests, the “deliverability” of these email messages is of great importance.  Often, ticket requests are not received by the intended recipient, not because of any technical issue, but simply because the email message to which the ticket was sent was invalid.

 

To help address this, we have recently introduced a new status flag that is shown beside ticket requests when we have received notification from the destination that the associated email message was not accepted. The new status flag looks like this:UNDELIVERABLE

Should you see this indicator on your ticket overview page, this indicates that the email message was not delivered.  In this situation, first obtain confirmation from the intended recipient of the email address to which the ticket is to be sent.

If the message was undeliverable because the recipients email mailbox was full, you may wish to use the “Send Reminder” option in the Actions menu to send another email message to the same address once they have cleared space in their mailbox.

If the recipient confirms their email address is different from that to which you sent the original message, use the “Copy” option in the Actions menu to send a copy of the undeliverable ticket to a new email address before deleting the original request.
