- We added a new function to view a list of "recent files" which where received from other members. The listview of "recent files" can be selected via a main menu just below "active" and "inactive" spaces.
Furthermore in the Settings (advanced) of the TeamDrive Client software you can define if "recent files" shall present a flat view or a grouped view (grouped in spaces)

- We added a selection option in Settigs (Space) to define what will be displayed at spaces "overview". The space overview (indicated with a yellow ring on a Space, in active apaces) always shows the latest activities of things happened in a space and it can bow show either the activities or the lasted received files.

Files which are not fully uploaded will not get lost when a Space is restored.

Deactivated Spaces will be removed from the VFS

Android and iOS Apps:

TeamDrive Client Release 4.7.2 Build 3014, is a stable release for all platforms which fixes one bug. It is important to update, to avoid sync problems.

In some cases users could not join/activate or enter a Space. In these cases the Space activation stopped and never finished.
In rare cases the synchronisation just stopped in existing Spaces.

Resolution recommendation:
Users who discover such problem should perform a full restore of that Space after they updated to the latest release. Such rejoin from scratch may take a few hours and will correct previous errors.
Space Information (i) -> Restore -> Advanced -> rejoin from scratch

German translation (Deutsche Erläuterung)
In einigen Fällen wird ein Space Beitritt nicht fertig und bleibt einfach stehen.
In seltenen Fällen hört ein Space auf zu synchronisieren.

Nach Update auf die neuste TeamDrive Version sollte für jeden Space der diese Symptome zeigt, eine vollständige Wiederherstellung dieses Spaces durchgeführt werden.
Space Information (i) -> Wiederherstellen -> Erweitert -> vollständige Wiederherstellung

New Build for Window available: Version 4.7.2 Build 3031

New in 4.7.1.

- Local Encryption for TeamDrive Clients, configurable for Account Admins (Managers)
(This feature requires an additional security layer for each user named "SuperPin")

- SuperPin, an additional long password for each user which is needed for the local encryption. If that feature is used, a password reset requires the SuperPin! TeamDrive employee can no longer issue a password reset (no more temporary passwords possible)
