March 2020 Release Notes

In addition to various performance improvements, user interface updates and error corrections, this release will also include:

Desktop Hosts

DocuSign File Size Limits

We have increased the cumulative size limit when sending multiple files for electronic signature via DocuSign from 25MB to 94MB.  Users will be warned when exceeding the maximum individual and cumulative file size for DocuSign.

Individual File Size Maximum per send:  23MB  (specifically, 24,200,000 bytes)

Cumulative File Size Maximum per send:  92MB 

File Manager Drag and Drop (Windows Only)

Kahua has added the ability to drag one or more files from your Desktop and Windows Explorer into File Manager.  When users drag file(s) into this list view, they will see their cursor show a grey box, indicating they are dragging a file into an area that allows ‘drop’.  If you attempt to drag on top of a folder name, which is not currently supported, aNo signicon will appear over your cursor.


Streaming Audio/Video Player (Windows Only)

Kahua introduces the ability to stream audio and video files with its new built-in Media Player.  This capability is now available throughout Kahua’s File Manager as well as in all Kahua apps (e.g. RFIs, Daily Reports, etc.) that have a Reference control where supporting files and documents can be attached.  The project team can now easily view jobsite videos without the need to download files.

Supported Audio formats include MP3, M4A and WAV, as well as several high-fidelity formats (FLAC, AAC, OGA, and OGG), and supported Video formats include MP4 and WEBM.

Additional Packaged Submittals Workflow

For users with the Kahua Best Practice extension for Packaged Submittals, a new workflow has been released:

Kahua Submittal Workflow - Owner Directed

This workflow is available to be set in Configuration for both Submittal Packages and Submittal Items and permits the Owner's Rep to set the final response for each Item.  In the event an Owner's Rep is not set, the final response will be set by the Official Reviewer.

SSL Certificate Pinning

Beginning March 30th 2020, Kahua will implement certificate pinning in all hosts in production. All non-production environments will implement certificate pinning on March 7th, 2020.  Kahua will be validating the SSL encryption chain in all hosts to ensure all certificates are trusted. If your organization has implemented SSL proxies or other such mechanisms that decrypt and re-encrypt SSL traffic, changes will need to be made to whitelist Kahua traffic to bypass that decryption/re-encryption process prior to March 30th. Additional information will be communicated by Kahua prior to March 13, 2020.

Mac Host

We have implemented our updated header, footer, and application bar design. The new design in consistent with previous changes to our Windows host.

  • Updates to My Settings > General that includes moving Show on Startup functionality into the context (right-click) menu for each application.
  • Fixed issue where My Settings would not reload after switching to another app then back to My Settings
  • Fixed issue where navigating a link to a file in File Manager would not open the destination file

  • Fixed issue in Milestones where current date was populating in empty date fields on Cancel
  • Fixed issue in Daily Reports where Total Labor Units were not displaying calculations properly
