  1. Directory structure on Workgroup Data Server

    We are working with more and more people, projects and countries on the same Workgroup Data Server, as the cost of a new server for each country are quite high. Unfortunately, there is no way to somehow make a directory structure on the Workgroup Data Server so we can arrange things by country for example. For now, a country prefix in front of a project works, but with hundreds of projects on the server this is not optimal.

  2. rectangular flap valve

    To avoid endless work around discusions on how to model a rectengular flap valve when only circular flap valves can be implemented in a model, having the option to model with rectangular flap valves would be verry usefull.

  3. Route subcatchment outflow directly to a point on the 2D mesh

    At times I want to route subcatchment flow to a certain point on the 2D mesh. This could be for directing building runoff to the street/curb or simply making sure the runoff gets to the inlet structure without forcing it into the underground network ignoring inlet capacity.
    It would be ideal to simply route subcatchment flow to 2D outfalls or 2D inflow points.

  4. Extend cross section lines

    When there is a cross section line present, it would be good if these could automatically be extended by a given distance to the left/right to ensure sufficient coverage, especially when sampling from a ground model.

  5. Individual vertex point visibility in GeoPlan

    When an individual point is selected in river section data, this is not dynamically shown on the GeoPlan like a cross section might be. It would be good if vertex points were also visible.

  6. Bulk river reach build process

    If the river reach build all is reinstated, it would be great if it could be conducted on a selection of river reaches rather than on a case by case basis.

  7. Floating licence manager improvements

    Updating the floating licence manager (which has to happen occasionally) is very difficult to organise because all licences (clients, engines, …) need to be checked in prior to the update to avoid corruption of the system. In a large company with many users (if not the majority of them) working remotely, this is almost impossible to achieve. So either there should be more flexibility in the update system, or there should be a functionality for a system administrator to force check-in licences if users don't react at the request.

    With updating licensing coming in 2021, the need to “update” licenses becomes a purely back office issue that removes the need to manually update the license manager.

    We’ve avoided this issue by removing the need to force upgrade the licenses. This improvement will retire the floating license manager process by the 2nd half of the 2021 year.

    Expect to hear more soon…

  8. Initialize reservoir levels from measured data in ICM / ICMLive

    Currently I can force my live simulations to initialize with measured level using dummy outfalls and sluice gates that close after the simulation starts with RTC, but that's very cumbersome to maintain.

  13. Straighten section tool

    At the moment it is possible to have non straight survey sections brought in, which may result in incorrect cross section lengths, straightening these was possible in RS, it would be good to have the same in ICM.

  14. Allow simple time delay between subcatchment and manhole

    After pruning my network, I want ICM to apply a simple time delay to flow from distant subcatchments to represent the travel time through smaller pipes before reaching the main transmission system.

    With the introduction of InfoWorks ICM 10.5 there is now an “Output lag (minutes)” field which should allow for exactly this, a fixed time offset on the outputs from a subcatchment.

  15. Automatic Left and Right Bank Selection

    Allow the graphical pick of a bank (by location) in software determine if the bank is left or right rather than have the prompt

  17. Change the location where a queued up run is to be run

    I've got a list of runs queued up on a my machine as our production servers were all spoken for. However they have now become free. Rather than cancelling the existing runs, it'd be easier for me to have a button where I can run immediately on machine 'x'. (I can run immediately but only on my machine).

    As commented earlier in an earlier response, it is possible to use the reschedule button for selected runs in the job control window in order to send them to a different machine within the workgroup. Please do let me know if this doesn’t fulfil the requirement in its entirety and we can investigate further.
