ExCM Extranet On-Prem New Release

We’ve been working on some significant enhancements to Extranet Collaboration Manager (ExCM) Extranet On-Premises and have just issued a new release that is available today!

Here is list of enhancements and fixes in the new release (Release 4.0.3223.1 for ExCM 2016, Release 3.0.8023.1 for ExCM 2013 R2):
  • New “responsive” forms-based authentication (FBA) sign in page and extranet user registration page
  • Added ability to provide a SQL server name or alias in the Extranet Setup Wizard to support non-default SQL Server for the Extranet Directory database.
  • Enhanced the Extranet Directory Web Part to return up to 50 results of extranet sites that a logged-in user has permissions to access
  • Invitation emails now have the option to be sent from a Trusted Identity Provider (TIP) user account, such as ADFS or Azure AD, as well as from a Windows Active Directory user account
  • Fixed a problem where extranet user invitations initiated by ChangeBot could not be successfully registered

Here are a few screenshots that give a glimpse at some of the new features:
