Global Element Usage Indexing and Search (Technology Preview)
Teamwork Cloud coupled with Elasticsearch engine brings a powerful functionality allowing you to index resources for their element usages within the selected scope of Teamwork Cloud repository and later query these usages through the modeling tool. This enables you to evaluate what impact modifying or deleting certain model elements will have on other models that are using it.
Teamwork Cloud Admin Console is now enriched with a section dedicated to configuration, initiation, and management of resource indexes. You can choose what needs to be indexed, where, and how with just a few clicks!

The new version of Teamwork Cloud brings an ability to organize your resources in a flexible folder-like manner using nested categories. The hierarchical grouping of categories ensures that your huge repository will not turn into a mess and required resources will be found easier.

Managing User Permissions and Assignments
Now all external users created in Teamwork Cloud upon successful authentication can automatically be given a certain set of permissions and assignments. Once you enable the Default user permissions template option, all newly created external users are instantly added to the dedicated Default Template user group. This way you can manage new user permissions and assignments a lot quicker because they simply inherit them from the dedicated user group.

Commit of Multiple Changes
This version of Cameo Collaborator for Teamwork Cloud brings a major improvement allowing you to commit changes accumulated while editing a model in one go. This significantly reduces the number of commits and therefore decreases the database growth when editing models.
