ISPadmin 5.20 beta1
RELEASE DATE: October 20, 2021
!IMPORTANT! This upgrade might take longer than usual. In some cases, even 60 minutes. Schedule it accordingly.
Nette Framework 3
- The system has been reworked to use Nette Framework 3.
Information tab in the Client card
- The Information tab has been completely reworked.
- The page has been divided into individual widgets that you can move around freely and that you can also hide using the page settings.
- The overview newly contains information about active services, latest tasks, latest contracts, latest documents, latest invoices and latest tickets. Also available are links to the relevant parts of the system.
- In the Client data widget, you can see the Edit, Send email and Send SMS buttons. When you click on the kebab menu button, further features are offered. Labels can be added to the client directly from the widget. Email addresses serve as active links. When you click on an address, you are taken to a form that allows you to send an email to the specified email address.
- In the Notes widget, display of notes has been modified. If a note is too long, only part of it is displayed. When you click on the Eye icon, the entire note text appears.
- A new tab has been added to the menu: Settings / Other / Maps. If you do not see it, check your user account settings in Settings / Administrators / Administrators and check the corresponding box.
- After upgrade, default values are preset for the basic settings. You can change the values using the Change settings button. You can revert to the default values using the Reset to default values button.
- In the map settings, you can specify maximum zoom and maximum native zoom. The maximum native zoom value specifies the maximum zoom value for which unique tiles are available. For higher zoom values, the tiles of the highest native zoom value will be used, which will then be enlarged by the software.
- The next two items have to do with the base (standard) map that is displayed across the system. In the Base map item, you can specify a link for displaying the base map. In the Base map copyright item, you can inlude information about the copyright related to the given map.
- The same can be set up for the satellite map (Satellite map and Satellite map copyright). If nothing is filled in, the satellite map will not be displayed in the system.
- You can also specify an overlay for the satellite map (Satellite map overlay). This overlay may contain, for example, street names that are missing from the satellite map in question.
- The last two items (Go to the map feature (coordinates) and Go to the map feature (search term)) have to do with links from the system to an external map. The first one contains a link that is used when coordinates are involved. The other one contains a link that is used when an address is involved.
- Hardware / POPs / Overview and Other/ Map
- The map rendering technology has been changed from Canvas to WebGL, which speeds up the map loading process.
- It is easier to click on a link because the click area has been enlarged.
- In case of outage, links have the attributes (line color, type and thickness) specified in the two new system link types: Offline link and Unreachable link (Hardware / Settings / Link types).
- Available shortcuts:
- Alt + click on a place in the map: Link from a place in the map to an external map
- Shift + click on a link: Link edit mode. You can change the location of link vertices. The map edit mode must be enabled.
- Ctrl + click on a vertex (or Command + click on a vertex for Macs): Link vertex deletion. The link edit mode must be enabled.
Selection of clients for bulk actions in the list of clients
- You can use various filters to select a particular group of clients for the purposes of bulk actions.
- Now it is possible to choose clients directly from the list in Clients / Contacts.
- The Clients / Contacts page has been completely rewritten.
- Checkboxes have been added to the page. You can use them to select the clients you want.
- Then, you need to find the Bulk action option at the top of the page. Choose Go to Bulk actions. Finally, select one of the three options offered (Bulk SMS, Bulk email or Bulk change).
- After confirming your choice, you are redirected to the bulk action form. On the form, you cannot edit any filters. You can only specify what exactly you want to do.
RouterOS 7 bug
- !WARNING! During the application of /queue/tree/add to RouterOS 7 routers, an issue might occur that causes the OS to crash and the router to restart.
- It is a RouterOS bug, not an ISPadmin bug.
- We recommend that you do not use RouterOS 7 until the issue is fixed by MikroTik.

POP contact persons
