Because good research needs good data

New DMPonline v3.0.3 release update notes

Magdalena Drafiova & Patricia Herterich | 12 August 2021

It has been some time since our latest release and we have  some improvements ready  with release v3.0.3. You can read the release notes from the software developers here (, and below I am providing you with a very brief summary about the latest changes.


We have improved several features for researchers. For instance, it has been reported that the project start and end date and grant information did not appear on the coversheet for the pdf export - which is now working #2972 ( We have also added an additional role to contributors page: ‘other’ #2961 (


A few bugs were fixed, too, such as making sure that the user does not appear on the collaborators list after they have been removed #2954 or that the researchers can export also plans with the quote in the title now #2883.


After the Rails5 upgrade we ended up with several bugs around the API v0, which are now fixed (#2892#2965#2966). It is also possible to download monthly usage which was previously throwing an error #2866. The last fix has been around sorting, searching and pagination options on the public plans and funder requirements pages where you can now copy, past and share search results #2959.

Other improvements covered less visible areas, such as infrastructure work on our servers,  adding Turkish language translation, allowing super admins to merge organisations or fixing issues around the workflows for inviting new users.
