  • Fixed the issue on the ticket report where extra space was added to the locations section when a database has multiple coordinate location types defined.
  • Fixed issue where a dispatched job or ticket would lose notes and or user defined fields.
  • Fixed the issue where coordinate locations would not show on Spira FT when dispatched from Spira Command.

Known Issues

  • Ticket detail customizations are supported but the ability to make the fields required or read only is not currently supported in Spira Command 4.9. Spira Support can assist you with modifying the configuration manually.
  • When registering a new device, if you enter an incorrect code you have to back out of the screen and try again.

  • Phases are not filtered based on job type.
  • The confirmation dialogues differ slightly between Spira FT on the iPhone and iPad. The iPad displays a single OK message where the iPhone displays OK and Cancel options.
  • It may be possible for a ticket with a picture attachment to stay in a queued state on Spira FT but still be received by Spira Corporate Web Services.
