Has anyone ever created a checklist to go through before upgrading versions? There were many bugs with 2.6, and I do not want to role out a new version to my 40 or so users if they are going to have issues.

Do you have your checklist to compare to?

I haven't created a checklist yet. You'd think there would be some basic functionality check list.. ArcPro 2.6 had many issues related to exporting a PDF. I had users that literally could not export.  Plus the release notes are for bugs that "were addressed." I am looking to do a quick quality control check before I upgrade my users. I like the feedback, but not exactly what I am looking for.

Sorry, the only options that I know of are

  • the "issues addressed" after a release or
  • if you file bug reports, you can "subscribe" to them and you will get notifications about their progress.

For ArcMap I tried to make a checklist for user workflows that hit all of the basics but for ArcGIS Pro I've been having my users hold of until the 2.x.1 release. The wait between 2.6.0 and 2.6.1 was only 35 days and this took care of most work-stopping bugs for us. 

Version 2.6.1
Build 2.6.1.24783 = ArcGIS Pro 2.6.1
Release Date: 9/1/2020

Version 2.6
Build 2.6.0.24783 = ArcGIS Pro 2.6.0
Release Date: 7/28/2020

This sounds like the most practical approach unless my users are still experiencing issues at 2.7.1. Thanks!
