ScrumDesk for Windows is a desktop application that keeps data stored in SQL Server database. Some updated require upgrading not just client application, but database as well.

Following steps guide you during the process of upgrade.

Minor updates

If a minor update is deployed, only ScrumDesk needs to be updated. Typically we deploy it as an automatic update.

You are informed about that with the special message about update availability. To update the installation you need just to agree with the update process.

Major update

Adding a new functionality requires changing database schema as well. Either ScrumDesk desktop client and database must be upgraded.
