Release: WorkPoint 365 software, version 2.0.0.0

 

WorkPoint A/S is proud to announce a new release of WorkPoint 365 software, version 2.0.0.0 (Release April 29). In this release there is a strong feature binding between WorkPoint 365 and WorkPoint Express so we highly recommend that you update both products in the same process. This release includes again a lot of “under the bonnet” work – a number of smart features, some known from WorkPoint Server, which makes it possible for our WorkPoint partners to deliver even more intelligent and scalable solutions to WorkPoint users. But also the user interface has been fine-tuned and improved. We have an updated entity tab web part, an updated breadcrumb, and enhancements to the My tools menu, among other things.

Favorites tab 

New this time is the Favorites tab within the Express panel, for easy access and navigation to items used frequently.

Relation model  

A major new “feature” to WorkPoint 365 is the Relation Model – the ability to dynamically connect business entities in different relationships provide customers with more flexible solutions. E.g. a contact can be an employee in a company, can be a board member on a particular board, or a stakeholder on a specific project at the same time. The Relation model provides easy configuration in the administration interface and easy overview and access from the user interface.   

Multi-site collection 

For customers with high end requirements in size of data structure and storage capacity, a new multi-site collection feature has been introduced. With automatic scaling it intelligently expands the underlying data structure to overcome limits in the SharePoint Online platform. 

Integration with and from ERP 

We have updated and enhanced our WorkPoint web service interface so we now support deep integration with and from ERP. E.g. get data structure from Dynamics AX directly infused in WorkPoint 365.  

Video training portal

A new online video training portal is now available for quick and easy support of organizational roll out. Read more here.

So keep it coming, we are listening.
