[Optional] Stop all MiaRec services and backup full directory C:\Program Files\MiaRec Business
Uninstall version 3.x
Install MiaRec version 5.x (download from here)
Supported data migration during upgrade
During upgrade the following data will be migrated from old version to new one:
Folders (they will be migrated to "categories").
Non-supported data migration during upgrade
Data, which is not migrated from old version to new one:
Users configuration. Due to significant changes in users access right system, the user accounts are not migrated from old version. It is necessary to re-create users manually in new version.
Auto-sort into folders rules. We are working on similar functionality for auto categorizing calls. But, probably, you do not need such auto-sorting anymore. In old version the folders were used primarily for grouping calls by users. Our customers created a dedicated folder for each user. In new version this is not necessary anymore because MiaRec automatically sorts calls by users and provides search "by user" capability out-of-box.
Incompatibilities between v.5 and v.3
New version of MiaRec includes a lot of new features and improvements in usability and user experience. Below we will list only significant incompatibilities between new and old versions:
New role-based permission system (more intuitive and flexible)
"Folders" were replaced with more flexible "Categories" (one call may be marked with multiple categories simultaneously).
"Recording rules" are configured on per-user basis. Previously the recording rules were configured separately from user's configuration.
