  • Recurring reminders make sending reminder emails easier. New setting options allow reminders to be sent on a recurring basis. Intervals from yearly to daily are supported (e.g. every 3 months or at the end of the year). The extension can be used in all editions without further configuration.

  • Spider has fewer accessibility barriers: Various improvements make working with Spider easier and more accessible. Operation with the keyboard has been improved in some places, tabular views work with higher contrast rates and the application name is also stored in page titles. Screen readers are almost fully supported in the suite and many of the controls are linked to labels in the frontend. A special focus was on the Login, AccountRecovery and MainMenu pages and the recurring controls that are visible on all pages. The table views (grids) have also been revised and offer better contrast and a new design. Furthermore, the Excel export has been completely revised. The results are now returned as a formatted table, so that working with a screen reader and direct filtering is also possible here.


  • The Info page has been redesigned to show links to the Flexera Community.

  • The edit forms for objects that support reminders now provide a link to directly create a reminder.


  • Subscription licenses are handled like licenses with valid maintenance (e.g. Software Assurance). The license maintenance wizard also considered subscription licenses. When it comes to the question of whether a license may remain in the "+ Software Assurance" product versions, subscription licenses are also accepted in addition to licenses with valid maintenance.

  • Previously, searching for a date on a specific day was only possible indirectly (larger and smaller). Searching for a specific day is now supported.

  • Under certain circumstances, products from the product catalog could not be transferred after selecting a manufacturer. This has been corrected.

  • Manufacturers that were created without a name could not be classified in SAM priorities. This has now been fixed.

  • It is now possible to start multiple changes for search results where the number of hits could not be determined.

  • The report "Procurement cost per manufacturer (Software)" incorrectly showed inactive elements. This has now been fixed.

  • It was not possible to trigger the search using the Enter key on reports that are based on procedures. This has been added.

  • Furthermore, discarding search filters was not functional on reports based on procedures. This has been fixed.

  • On the Item Catalog page, the tab order was not as expected. This has been fixed.

  • Previously, when an asset's type differed from the inventoried device's type, a message was displayed in the asset's edit form. This message has now been removed.

  • Under certain circumstances, the Spider Admin Tool could not be updated during a setup. This has been corrected.
