Deltek Vantagepoint 4.0.7 (Build Release Notes
Release Date: September 22, 2021

Last Updated: September 22, 2021

Welcome to the Deltek Vantagepoint 4.0.7 Release Notes, which describe the new features and enhancements introduced in this release.

These release notes address all of the modules associated with Deltek Vantagepoint 3.0, some of which your firm may not use. Skip the sections that do not apply to your implementation of Deltek Vantagepoint.


Connect Administration

Allow Customers to Deprovision Connect

Vantagepoint Connect Administration (Utilities » Integrations » Connect Administration) now includes a Delete All Connect Configuration action that allows you to delete all Connect configuration, including the settings for all Connect users. This is useful when you need to delete Connect configuration and start over; for example, when the initial Connect configuration failed or you tested Connect in a sandbox environment and now need to configure it in a production environment.

When you use the Delete All Connect Configuration action, you receive a warning message that prompts you to confirm the deletion.


Update to Named User Indicators for Resource Planning and CRM Modules

Previously, users to whom you gave access to one or more of the following applications were counted against your number of available named user licenses for the Resource Planning module, even if they had no other Resource Planning access:

In addition, access to the Estimates form in the Projects hub counted against your number of available named user licenses for the CRM module. 

Now these items no longer contain named user indicators. You can now give a user access to one or more of them without consuming one of your named user licenses for Resource Planning or CRM, as long as that user does not also have access to any other named user indicators for those modules.


Upgrade Touch Server to PHP 7.4.23

The Touch Server for this version of the Vantagepoint mobile application has been upgraded to support PHP 7.4.23.
