App deprecations

Part of being adaptive to change is the ability to say goodbye to Apps which just don't cut it anymore. This page will give you an overview of our App deprecation process and the Apps currently in those flows.

We are currently in the process of phasing out Admin 1.0 (replaced by Admin Suite) and Companion App (replaced by App Suite).

These deprecation flows will go through four different phases:

  1. Maintenance mode: during this period we're no longer actively adding new functionality to the app, unless we're explicitly asked to do so.
  2. Deprecation mode: no development is performed aside from keeping up with deprecations - support is still available.
  3. Phase out mode: although the Apps are still live, there's no development, no deprecations and no support.
  4. Switch off mode: all necessary functionality has been moved over to Admin Suite and/or the App Suite, making its predecessor redundant and safely switched off.

The following dates show the duration of these modes. Mind that these are not set in stone but give a good estimation:

  • Companion

    • Maintenance mode: Done
    • Deprecation mode: Since April, 2024
    • Phase out mode: December, 2024
  • Admin 1.0

    • Maintenance mode: Done
    • Deprecation mode: Done
    • Phase out mode: Since January, 2024
    • Switch off mode:
      • Redirects removed from Admin Suite Beyond environments with Drop 72, on May 27, 2024
      • Redirects removed from Admin Suite Main environments with Drop 73, on June 24, 2024
Monitor Our Update Communications

Once all (remaining) chapters have been migrated to Admin Suite, we will update you through our drop notes/communications on how Admin 1.0 can still be accessed, if necessary.

Admin Suite currently has several chapters which are in effect redirects to their corresponding functionality Admin 1.0. While some of this functionality is being replaced (or scheduled to) with a new chapter in Admin Suite, all redirects to Admin 1.0 will eventually disappear by clicking any of the migrated chapters.

This means that:

  • the last remaining chapters, Recount for example, will no longer be available on environments running Beyond with R72 (April 29);
  • four weeks, or 1 release cycle later, this will pass over into environments running Main with R73 (June 24).

If you want to know which links are currently still available, which are being replaced and when this will happen, please expand the following section.
