This update provides a summary of ARMATURE Fabric’s development in October and November. During these two months we completed four Sprints. Please see below for a summary of key bug fixes, software patches, and enhancements. 


To experience the full benefits of the ARMATURE Fabric platform, we recommend that our customers update their software at least quarterly. If you have specific requests or wish to see post-release updates, please contact your project/account manager for more details. 


In the month of October, our team focused on making continuous improvements to our Translation and Multilingual functionalities, and our newly added Events functionality. These improvements were released across three version updates including: 


Version 1.0.19282.4 – released on October 9th, 2019 


Version 1.0.19291.2 – released on October 19th, 2019 


Version 1.0.19302.4 – released on October 29th, 2019 


October updates include the following additions / modifications: 


Translation & Multilingual Functionalities 

  • Added functionality to allow translation of extensions and extension attributes (including selection values). This includes (but is not limited to) translation of selection values such as phone, email, address, and contact types, as well as custom extensions to existing objects (e.g. attributes on applications, certifications, etc.). 
  • Added developer support to enable easier implementation of translatable values within custom widgets/projects by providing a pattern and component library to support language conversion (on named values and selections).



  • Added support to allow external stakeholders to download resources (added through events or processes tied to events). 
  • Modified Schedule Items listing to view a subset of items (from a dashboard) with click through functionality to see all existing Instruments, Events, or Reviews. 
  • Changed dashboard-based event listing logic to remove items from the dashboard queue once the event end date has passed. 
  • Added initial support to track decision outcomes on Events (designed specifically for Standard Events which act as committee meetings). Allows customers to track all of the accreditation (and other) decisions that were captured in a meeting.


Instrument Responses 

  • Added the ability to flatten question and table question responses to a common format which may be exported to excel (csv).
