Release Notes

Release updates for June 17th, 2022

Fixed: General System Improvements / Bug Fixes

  • Various bugs have been squashed with our newest release, improving our system in ways that are hard to describe… (aka no UI changes to your day-to-day experience)


Release updates for June 6th, 2022

Fixed: Generation Upload Permissions Error

  • We resolved an issue where some users got the message, “you do not have permission to upload generation” when they did have permission.

Introducing: Reserve Transactions

  • On the RTC side we renamed the system function of ‘withdrawing’ RTCs to ‘reserving’ RTCs. We changed this because ‘withdraw’ is a term that is used for another action in the system (status type for exported certificates) and ‘reserve’ is a unique naming convention

  • We also introduced this ‘Reserve’ functionality to the REC side (it is not a retirement or claim, but removing from circulation)

Introducing: DGGs

  • If your organization is interested in registering small aggregate solar projects, we now have the ability to have Distributed Generation Groups (DGGs). To learn more about this new feature, message our system admin! ([email protected])


Release updates for May 13th, 2022

  • Recurring transfers were struggling with large uploads- we fixed that!

  • Last week we experienced a delay in adding new organizations to the Sandbox- that’s fixed!

  • Had a few typos we addressed. If you didn’t notice them… well we didn’t either. 

  • We added a Non-Renewable Fuel Type and Fuel Source to track in Alberta. This allows some users in Alberta to earn credits for MWhs that were not used for Emission Performance Credits. This solution could work for other programs if you are interested in adding a program to this fuel source reach out to our System Admin. 

  • We added the ability for users to reject a pending generation entry

  • We added a confirmation screen to the Organization registration flow explaining that we contact you when your registration is complete

  • Under Generators there is a Validation Curve section that will display Generation Validation Curves if they have been added by an Admin. When these curves are added, the Generator’s Engineering tab will show the validation curve instead of the capacity factor.

  • Improved our issuance process to look at the generation validation curve when those are present instead of the capacity factor


Release updates for April 15th, 2022

Fixed: Improved performance of table downloads and general bug fixes


Release updates for April 7th, 2022

Fixed: Improvements to our UI and bugs squashed

  • As you select REC/RTC in the Certificates tab, you get a total REC count that displays how many you’ve selected at the top of the page.

  • We’ve added the REC & RTC Edit Program views so organizations that own a Program or Program Admins can edit their Program details. 

  • Have you ever seen an error message pop-up behind our Zendesk widget? Don’t worry, we moved our message pop-up to top-middle of the screen so now you can read it!

  • Zero RECs in an account now displays as “0” instead of an “N/A”. 

  • If you go to the Inactive Generators tab, you will see any Inactive, Rejected, Suspended, or Terminated generators (not just ‘Inactive’ labeled ones). 

  • We also updated the transfer screen to correctly read “Select the accounts that you would like to transfer to” instead of “Select the accounts you would like to retire to” to clear up that confusion. 

  • Under Programs close date, you can only select future dates and can no longer select dates in the past. 

  • All users with Manage Transaction permissions can reject an import. 

  • Now users cannot submit a generator if it will put them over their subscription cap. A helpful error message will inform you that the generator cannot be submitted. 

Fixed: Introducing New and Improved Market Displays

  • When you are inviting a Market Participant, now you will see a drop-down that lists the active organizations in our system. 

  • Invitations to join a Market are now visible from the dashboard.

  • Markets now have their own section on the site and are not longer under the Programs tab. If you have a Market account, it will now appear as a separate tab in the left-side menu. 

Updated Documentation

  • On the API Documentation side, we cleaned up some of the Swagger files and updated the Postman files. If you enjoy the Postman format, we included documentation with the Postman files if you check out the in-app documentation button. 

Many of these updates are from user requests or comments. We are always open to your feedback on improving your experience with M-RETS.

Feel free to email [email protected] with your comments, compliments, or concerns.
