YAPI Desktop - Version 1.8.1

The following notes pertain to a hotfix update that has been made available on May 21, 2021. Issues related to YService errors for Dentrix users and Recall Past Due lists will be accounted for in the YService Version 1.8.1 update.

YService Errors for Dentrix Users

Some Dentrix users reported errors that prevent them from checking in patients, requiring the YAPI Service to be restarted. Higher production offices have more data so they saw this error when YAPI attempted to pull in too much information at once. We've further optimized the way we're pulling data to make it more efficient; this issue has been fixed. The Dentrix users can now log in and check patients in without a YAPI Service restart.

Smart Fill Recall Error

Some Smart Fill users reported seeing the error below when using the Recall Past Due report. This issue has been addressed. Data now returns when you run the Recall Past Due report.
