What's new in WBI 7
WBI 7 now includes the following new features and changes:
Location of installation folder is C:\Program Files (x86)\Ground Zero Tech-Works Inc\AyaNovaWBI - no longer includes the version number in the folder name so no need to change your URL when upgrade to future versions.
Name of WBI web site created is AyaNovaWBI - - no longer includes the version number in the folder name.
Make a note of this for yourself and your customers for the URL used when logging in may affect your URL.
Object.Workorder right no longer relevant. If have clients that log into WBI, make sure their security group has Object.WorkorderService set to minimum Read Only
Signature capture via remote access options MBI and WBI
Capture a signature online via WBI from your client without additional software nor with special hardware - just a mouse is needed! And have your client's signature show on the report preview / printout too!
Framework .NET 4 compatibility:
Using the latest Microsoft.NET Framework not only provides you with the latest performance improvements of Framework.NET 4, but also simplifies the WBI installation as no need to also make sure IIS 6 Mgmt capability and its files are properly installed.
Set fields of the workorder, quote and preventive maintenance header to not display:
If you customize via the full AyaNova Windows user interface the workorder, quote or PM header fields to not display to minimize what fields your staff works with, those same disabled fields also will not display when logged in via WBI.
Set subsections of workorder entry screen to not show (i.e. Expenses, Loans, etc):
If you set via the full AyaNova Windows user interface whether users of a security group can even see a subsection or not of the service workorder (and quote and PM), the same will apply when viewing via WBI.
This is useful for those that would like to "clean up" the order entry screen to not show sections not used such as for example if don't provide Outside service or Loans) or useful for those that don't want certain users to see certain subsections of a workorder (i.e. may not want a user to see Outside service details)
Custom Fields grid only shows if enabled:
As with the full AyaNova, the Custom Fields grid now only shows in the Service navigation pane if you have enabled custom fields for workorder items. If you have enabled Custom Fields for workorder items and not showing in WBI, just exit out and log back in.
Combo boxes now multi-character autocomplete:
Instead of having to only use your mouse to scroll down lists, the multi-character autocomplete feature means you can just start typing in the characters of the item's name and WBI will "jump" to it for you to save you time!
Header and Footer html for Client's WBI:
Keep your customer assured that they are logged in to your approved site - include either or both a footer and header to display on each Client WBI web page with your own logo and contact information, or any other information you would like to include for your client to see.
Header and Footer html for WBI login page:
You can also have this header/footer display on the login page itself in addition to the your company logo on the login page
Wikipage associated with service workorder now accessible by Client through WBI if given rights to do so:
Set the security group object rights for Object.WikiPage for your WBI client, and when they are logged in, they can view the associated Wiki page with each service workorder
Unit serviced now displays in Client's WBI workorders grid:
The unit selected in the workorder now displays in the service workorder grid column Unit: for the client when logged in via WBI.
If multiple workorder items each with a unit selected in one workorder, each unit will display one after the other in the column. The client can easily change the size of the column by adjusting the column header with their mouse if needed.
And the client can easily use the filter feature to filter to view only workorders where a specific unit is selected.
Easier menu option to quickly select to view only non-Closed workorders or all:
In addition to the existing filter feature, the Service Workorders grid now includes a menu option for your client to easily click and select Refresh to see all open and Closed workorders, or just open workorders.
Combo boxes now multi-character autocomplete:
Instead of having to only use your mouse to scroll down the client selection list if logged in as a head office, the multi-character autocomplete feature means you can just start typing in the characters of the client's name and WBI will "jump" to it for you to save you time!
