The Forefront TMG team is proud to announce the release of MRS (V1.1) including the following key features:
- Improved confirmation message – Any submission of feedback to MRS for new URLs that are not categorized will be followed by acceptance notification to the user submitting the information
- HIP audio
- Category definition page – In the MRS portal one can see current list of categories provided by MRS
Other than those visible enhancements, this new version of the online service includes
- Delivery Service performance improvements
- Data processing performance improvements – new/changed URL classifications made available to customers faster
Portal User Experience
We have improved the submission experience, making it clearer that your feedback has been received, and noting that the classifications displayed on the Feedback and Error Reporting site may not change for some time as we analyze submissions.
There are several changes in the MRS Feedback and Error Reporting web portal. The site now supports both visual and audio HIP (Human Interaction Proof) challenges.
MRS Service Improvements
To ensure a seamless and consistent user experience as more and more customers deploy Forefront TMG and leverage its URL filtering functionality, we have more than tripled MRS service capacity in the 1.1 release. We also improved our systems to ensure less downtime. Performance improvements in our data processing pipeline mean that changes in URL classifications will reach customers faster.
We have also added a category definition page to make it easier to both interpret the current MRS classification and to choose the classification you feel best fits the site being reported.
As always, we appreciate feedback about your experience with the web site and encourage you to use the MRS Portal Feedback link to let us know what you think!
