Are you on the latest Oliver v5 update and taking advantage of all the newest functionality available to you?

Oliver v5 Build 8.032 is the latest release available to our supported users and just one of the ten updates planned annually by the Softlink Development Team. With so many updates planned, you can be sure that there are lots of exciting new features on the horizon.

Some of the recent new features include enhanced stocktake functionality, improved search functionality, new page layouts, new reports and much more.

Did you know that your school can have updates to Oliver v5 applied automatically, as soon as they are made available by the Softlink Development Team? This means that library staff can access all the newest functionality immediately, with no effort required from your IT staff.

All updates approved for automatic download have passed Softlink’s extensive testing process. The updates are applied automatically to your Oliver v5 system during weekends, so library staff don’t experience any down time.

If you would like to turn on the auto update function in your Oliver v5 system, you can find instructions by logging into the Oliver v5 Community Portal and searching for ‘Enabling automatic updates’.

If you are an Oliver v5 user and have yet to register for the portal, you can email to get your registration process started.

*If you take advantage of Softlink’s Hosting Service then Softlink will already be managing this process for you.

*If you are part of a group of schools being centrally managed by a Head Office then the upgrade process will be managed by your Head Office.
