The Alcion team is off to a great start in 2024, and I'm happy to introduce the following new capabilities.

Features

Manage Administrators

It's not uncommon that more than one user needs access and permissions to administer Alcion. It's now possible for an Alcion user to invite additional administrators or, if needed, revoke access that has been previously granted.

Additional Email Notifications

Alcion now offers additional notifications for events that may require your attention. The following new notifications are now available:

  • First successful backup
  • Export failures
  • Export successful completions
  • Backup deletion requests

Contacts and Events PST Export

Following the introduction of PST export for email last month, it's now also possible to export contacts and events as a PST file.

For more details, see the relevant documentation.

Improvements

  • Improved performance when loading a large number of actions.
  • Clarified error messages when attempting to start a backup and one is already in progress.
  • Daily activity emails now include the number of days remaining in trial.
  • Improved efficiency of ransomware detection by avoiding repeat analysis of items that haven't changed.
  • Ensured that the full backup following a preview backup isn't subject to scheduling restrictions.
  • Further optimized UI load times and responsiveness of actions.
  • Upgraded to the latest version of Corso which brings a number of functional, performance, and robustness improvements. For more information on Corso specific changes please see the Corso changelog.

Notable fixes

  • Fixed improper handling of unlicensed teams.
  • Fixed license discovery for users who have been removed in Microsoft 365.
  • Fixed automatic inactive session logout on inactive browser tabs.
  • Fixed an issue where excess licenses for annual subscriptions could be negative.
  • Fixed the backup calendar selector which incorrectly allowed range selection.
  • Fixed an issue where the full backup that follows preview backup might be subject to scheduling restrictions.
  • Fixed incorrect reporting of malware and ransomware incidents in historical stats.
