Hey Tipster. Unusual that on prem would get a feature release before online, but do we know when this might be available for online?
the update is an on premise update. If you find your quick find for online slow, open a support ticket. Also, keep in mind that update 1 (not .01) will be online only, so you will get a lot of goodies for online very shortly.
