We’re pleased to announce the availability of NH360 Portfolio Insights v6.8 – Product Update 8 (PU8). Product Updates include all previously released public updates and private hotfixes.

UPCOMING CHANGES: Starting with NH360 Portfolio Insights v6.9 – Product Update 9 (PU9), ‘SharePoint Connected Entity Types’ will no longer be supported in NH360 Portfolio Insights, and will be superseded by ‘Entity Types’.
