Blackout 4.2 Update 1 introduces workflow improvements for placing manual redactions, a priority queue for executing time-sensitive projects ahead of other work, and performance improvements for cancellation and manual redactions.

3MIN BLACKOUT 4.2 UPDATE 1

WITH ACCOUNT MANAGER JEFFREY LEVINSON



Features


Priority Queue

Provide a mechanism for system admins to move projects into a priority queue from the "Project Status" page. Only one project at a time can execute in the priority queue. If another project is currently running in the priority queue, any other project flagged for it will not be able to start until the currently running project is finished.

Agent Processing Notes

  • Blackout Agent resources requirement remains the same

  • Priority Project tasks are enqueued behind manual markup tasks on the Blackout Agent task queue


Repeat Last Action

Update the right-click menu to have a top level menu item that lets reviewers quickly access the last type of manual right-click menu redaction placed. Also available via a new keyboard shortcut.


Control + B is the repeat last action shortcut. This is not configurable.



Cancelling Projects Failures

With the introduction of a priority queue, it is important to be able to quickly promote or stop projects that are running in order to actually manage the execution of multiple concurrent projects. Today, it may take many minutes for a long running project to cancel. Any project will now cancel within 5 minutes or less.
