queXS 2.3.0 Released

Get queXS 2.3.0

queXS 2.3.0 removes a limitation where you could not specify a token in a sample file that was the same as an existing token in the queXS database. Now you can upload a sample that contains a token that has been "used" by queXS before. This allows for you to create new sample lists for following up existing participants where you want to manage the sample externally to queXS.

An additional feature is a new tab being available for interviewers (can enable by setting TAB_SEARCHSAMPLE to "true" in config.inc.local.php) to be able to search through all fields that are set to "visible" in samples assigned to them, to be able to assign themselves to an existing case. This can be used where inbound calls may occur.
