ePlans -- ProjectDox upgrade

The department is upgrading ProjectDox, the software behind ePlans. The upgrade will occur in two phases. Phase I goes live Monday, Feb. 5, 2018, and includes minor look and feel changes, updated branding and support for Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari browsers. See below for steps required to begin using the upgraded version of ePlans.

Phase II will occur in March 2018 and includes a new workflow engine. Communications about this upgrade will be sent to users in early March. The Phase II upgrade will not require additional configuration steps for users.

Phase I upgrade: Required steps for users

Please perform the following steps before using ProjectDox-ePlans after Feb. 5, 2018:

Internet Explorer users

  • If you are new to ePlans or have not used Internet Explorer to access ePlans before, you will need to follow the setup instructions found in section 2 of the ProjectDox System User Requirements document. The ProjectDox components are accessible from the ePlans login page. Some configuration steps require you to enter the following ProjectDox URL: https://mn-us.avolvecloud.com/projectdox/

  • If you already use Internet Explorer to access ePlans then you need to do two things: install the new ProjectDox components and remove the setting for Compatibility View.
    • To install the new ProjectDox components please follow the instructions in section 2.3 of the ProjectDox System User Requirements document. The ProjectDox components are accessible from the ePlans login page.
    • Use the Tools icon (looks like a gear) in Internet Explorer and select Compatibility View settings. ┬áSelect the website name in the middle of the pop-up window that includes "avolvecloud.com" and click the "Remove" button.
    • It may be a good idea to verify the other configuration steps in section 2 of the document to make sure that all configuration steps are complete. Some configuration steps require the following ProjectDox URL: https://mn-us.avolvecloud.com/projectdox/

Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari users

  • Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari browsers are now fully supported. Setup for these browser requires only that any pop-up blocker is configured to allow pop-ups for the ProjectDox site. Please refer to the appropriate sections of the ProjectDox System User Requirements document for step-by-step instructions. The ProjectDox URL that is needed for this configuration is: https://mn-us.avolvecloud.com/projectdox/

Phase II upgrade: Coming March, 2018

The Phase II upgrade will include a change to the ProjectDox workflow. No configuration changes will be required. Communication will be made and an updated User Guide will be available in early March.
