It's my pleasure to announce the official release of Snow Automation Platform 3.1:
Released December 15
Release information


Product: Snow Automation Platform (AP)
New version: 3.1
Release date: December 15, 2016 
Distribution: Snow Update Service
Current status: Released


New features in Snow Automation Platform, version 3.1:

Mobile enabled GUI. Views FOR MY TASKS.


Business users can now manage the tasks assigned to them using the mobile interface. Users can:
- List all unmanaged assigned tasks, manage them through the mobile interface, and view all the 
relevant information to take an informed task decision.
- List all managed tasks, providing the capability to review previously managed tasks.
- View the details of the service(s) that are connected to the task.


- The time to complete PowerShell web services that gather and pre-populate information for, 
Checkout view and My tasks, for example, has been reduced. The PowerShell web service calls 
have been updated with mutex, which enables calls to be carried out in parallel instead of 
running them sequentially.


The security of Automation Platform has been tightened through the addition of:
- Protection against XSRF attacks, and
- Improved protection for SQL injections using PowerShell
