GIS 2.0

  • Request for WMS/WMTS Support (33033)
    • Added support for WMS (web map service) and WMTS (web map tile service) layers.

Example services:

WMS Sample:

https://tnris.org/maps-and-data/online-mapping-services/

WMTS Sample:

https://services.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/rest/services/Demographics/USA_Population_Density/MapServer/WMTS/

  • The UI was unchanged, only the logic to handle these new layer types was added.
  • They are added by opening the Add Data tool and choosing ‘Service Layers’. Enter the URL to the WMS or WMTS service and click connect. Select the layer to add to the map.

R37-8a R37-8b

R37-8c

  • The WMS/WMTS layers behave much like the basemap layers. They are view only without labels and NO relationship to parcels.
    • Hover over the layer name for the service URL, including the spatial reference:

R37-9a

  • The context menu options appropriate are enabled by right clicking the layer.

R37-9b

  • These service layers ‘lock down’ the spatial reference of the map just like the basemaps do. Another layer with a separate spatial reference cannot be added to the map; i.e. direct access shapefiles.

R37-9c

NOTE: If using the new WMS or WMTS service layer option, the local service shapefile can be used to include a parcel layer.

R37-9d

INSTALLMENT AGREEMENTS

  • Add Option to Not Accrue Attorney fee (26905)

R37-10a

  • Option is added in addition to the existing ‘HS Exempt’ option for flexibility in setting up an installment agreement
  • Checkboxes are independent and do not have to be used together. The client office will be responsible for setting up the agreement as appropriate.
  • If both boxes are selected, the rules for HS Exempt will apply in addition to not accruing attorney fees
  • Any fees, penalty and interest already accrued before the agreement is created will not be affected by the checkbox options.

R37-10b R37-10c

With Attorney Fees:

R37-11a R37-11b

  • The item described below is NOT a defect.
    • The sum of the installment payments will not equal the total amount due, as the total installment amount is based on a calculation and assumes the payments are made as of the schedule created.
    • As such, additional penalty and interest is assumed in each payment amount which may not yet be accrued in the Total Due field.
    • To help reduce confusion, new text has been added to the installment agreement set-up wizard and details dialog.

R37-11c R37-11d

MH LIENS

  • Mobile Home Record/Release form CTC (39041)

This project is intended to incorporate the SQL updates Support was manually handling for each client using the CTC. NO CHANGES have been made to the lien process or lien display in PACS.

Changes ONLY affect the export processes.

  • Property
    • Taxing Unit ID will display for each entity, regardless of CTC applied through export
    • NO CHANGES have been made from the property level
    • No UI changes have been made
  • Clients will now be able to export liens and release liens by CTC number without support intervention

NOTE: Following R37 deployment Clients will need to notify Support of their intent to use CTC and provide the valid CTC number BEFORE exporting liens, even if this has been previously done by support.

  • Activities> MH Liens> Export> Generate New Export…

R37-12a

  • Changes have been made to the export process. When the CTC database field is populated, the script from support will be used to consolidate the property entities and file by CTC.

R37-12b R37-12c

  • CTC number is reported with only a single line for the property, per year.

  • MH Lien> Print Listing… is updated for column to display CTC/TU

R37-13b

  • Activities> Mobile Home Liens> Release Mobile Home Liens> Generate New Release…

R37-13c

  • Changes have been made to the export process. When the CTC database field is populated, the script from support will be used to consolidate the property entities and release by CTC. If the lien existed prior to 2009, it should be released by taxing unit ID (entity ID) not CTC. Otherwise, if the CTC number is populated in the database and the lien existed 2009 forward use the CTC number to release.

R37-13d R37-13e

  • When the Export completes successfully a file will be created in the expected folder.
  • CTC number is reported with only a single line for the property, per year.

R37-14a

R37-14b

  • See below that PACS has the CTC number assigned to some but others, before 2009, are using the taxing unit ID. A single property can release by both CTC and TU, depending on whether the lien existed prior to 2009.

R37-14c

  • Form updated to print the same form from:
    • Property
      • Taxing Unit ID will print on a form for each entity, regardless of CTC applied through export

TeamSupport

Ticket ID

Description of Update

115673

Installment agreement ID 3564 has amounts due after all paid timely.

Add the following text on Installment Schedule page and Installment General Page:

*as of current posting date

Total Installment amount due may differ based on penalties and interest due over the lifetime of the agreement.

133060

Quick Post needs Credit Card option; resolved, added Credit Card fields to Quick Post.

137633

Credit cards for escrow/SIT escrow payments; resolved.

146096

Problem with Installment Agreement amount due calculations.

Add the following text on Installment Schedule page and Installment General Page:

*as of current posting date

Total Installment amount due may differ based on penalties and interest due over the lifetime of the agreement.

158982

The Defaulted Installment agreement report lists no items when it is printed after the create bills process for a supplement. No items print even though the create bills process did default some installment agreements. Working as designed and not a bug after all. The installment remained active even after supplemental bills were created, the value on the property didn’t change. When the value of changed, the installment defaulted and report listed an entry.

159644

GIS 2.0 – enhancement request for WMS/WMTS support. Fixed issue with enumeration and map serialization; adding support for WMS/WMTS layers.

169404

Installment Agreement – payment not showing when PAID by entered for payment. Corrected.

173638

Certified Letter did not print for PID 709339 Case 118047. Resolved. The case did not have a letter printed on it.

180213

Entity MD2 will not return any properties in the Search Results Screen. Corrected; adjusted Property Search to account for blanks embedded within the Entity Code.

178893

Mass Maintenance Negative Adjustment Error-PACS Mass Maintenance will not accept negative numbers in any of the improvement factors. When a number is negative, PACS displays a warning screen: “A number is required for this field”. The negative number is turned into a positive number. This has been corrected.

182541

Online Protest not updating in PACS. Resolved; replication from onlineappeals to pacs_oltp was down. Now that replication is up, protests are being created on PACS end.

183924

Online Scheduling still available after it was disabled in the Configuration. The online_appeals_website.config.allow_online_scheduling configuration was not being checked when determining whether or not to display the schedule column on the Protest Summary view. The schedule column is no longer present when this global configuration is off. It should also be removed from the selectable column list when the configuration is off.

184190

Agent unable to export protest list in Portal. A max message received; configuration on website was preventing response from the service when trying to export protest information for this large agent account. The max message configuration was increased for TAProtestSoap and now able to export protest for FiveStone when logged in as the admin. Resolved at the client by update the web.config

184035

Missing some Images on FIDs filed through Agent Portal on 5-31-18. Files failed to copy out likely due to network issues. Additional cases have been checked that may have not been reported and only 4 listed in this TFS item were found. These were corrected manually by copying the files out and clearing the recorded error message associated with these images. Each one was opened in PACS to verify that they are now corrected.

180992

Incorrect Options for Improvement Details in Mass Update. Database checked; all fields are populated from table [imprv_detail] or [imprv_det_adj] when Improvement Detail is selected which are correct.

184814

When mass creating protests using the Owner_Id to select the properties, deleted properties, udi children properties and collections only properties are being returned. This creates an issue because with collections only properties, Support has to go behind the scenes and delete the protests. Corrected.

184839

Comp Grid Not Pulling in Class information for subject Property. For 2018, Comanche has turned on the configuration setting to Use the Class Code from the High Value Improvement which is why PID 4035 is not loading RSF02 in the Comp Grid Search criteria.

184900

ARB Online Protest – Taxpayer received confirmation that the protest had been filed online, but PACS does not have a protest for the property. Issue traced down to incorrect setup on TAPortalService end. Found that onlinappeals database was upgraded to 1.36.5 but the TAPortalService.dll was still on 1.36.1.

TAPortalService was stopped and replaced the files for TAPortal setup with the 1.36.5 versions of the files. Issue was corrected.

184960

Mineral Import – Process for Run 112 should have completed, running over 22 hours; not sure if the process is still running. Issue resolved; appears the merge step completed, but the Calculate Taxable X Cleanup was stalled. Advised client to stop PACS and we stopped the SPID in SQL Server that was stuck. The Preliminary Totals were run to force Calculate Taxable to be executed. Process completed.

185106

Unable to undo import, receiving an error. Several tables, implemented as part of the Pritchard & Abbott “Enhanced” layout were missing. The tables were recreated so that the “Undo” would work; issue corrected.

185618

WCAD Supp-Agent File Not Compatible-import has errors. Resolved; operator error. The import files with 2018-07-26_000356 prefix were all empty and hence the issue.

185894

PTD Reports Are Missing from Drop Down. Possible conversion error. A number of entries for PTD reports for the year 2018 were missing from the report table. Added entries and issue resolved.

186059

PTD Reports are Missing from Drop Down. Corrected; missing PTD report entries based on the spreadsheet provided. (by Starr CAD)

186073

Water District Notice of Hearing getting an error when inputting data. Issue corrected.

186110

New Year Layer Process still running after 13 plus hours (at Denton). Performance issue related to some large personal property records that take a long time for recalculation.

185700

Certified Appraisal Import error. Foreign key constraint removed; continue to observe if issue occurs again; restore restraints of necessary.

186168

Missing PTD Reports. Missing entries were added for the PTD reports to the report table.

186427

TNT print version of Effective worksheet is not using line 2b. Corrected. The stored procedure was changed to calculate the prior year value correctly.

186425

Income Module test fields do not allow text – some fields in the Income Module only accept numbers when they should accept text data. Coding error; issue resolved.

186575

Lost Account – PID 640649 has disappeared form the 2018 year. This has been corrected.

186683

Error when trying to Merge properties into a property that has an existing freeze. Fixed; removed the foreign key constraint CFK_property_freeze_entity_prop_assoc from the property_freeze table.

186761

Error accepting Supplement – The failure was on account of a bulk insertion failure in calculation taxable on account of column introduced during conversion(prop_owner_entity_val.cnv_legacy_id). Issue corrected and supplement was successfully accepted.

186936

Arbitration – Agent Authorization Date is disappearing and when a change is made, it is being overridden to a blank field.
