WorkPoint 365 version

This release is live 14 December 2017.

This release includes some significant new features that will be of high benefit to administrators of WorkPoint solutions.

Also there has been focused on product improvements and bug fixes.

For the WorkPoint365 user this release will come through as a improvement in stability and performance.

Event logging

The event logging provides insight into the health of WorkPoint's background jobs and processes. Hence system administrators can get insight into many technical core WorkPoint processes and will have highly increased understanding of how the solution is running. Likewise they will be able to detect the possible causes to any issues or irregularities that might occur.

The event logging feature is described in a guide here

Improved master site synchronisation

Our master site synchronisation is currently undergoing an overhaul, first bits are released now, more will follow in later releases. Today we introduces a set of information fields that will contain information about the status of master sites synchronisation. These can be used to provide information to administrators on synchronisation jobs. More information on the functionality found here.

Dynamic site creation

Until now elements in WorkPoint modules have been designed either with or without sites. In some cases you could manually create a site. Now, with the dynamic site creation, it is possible to manage when a site should be created. For example you can now have sites created based on the entity stage, and if the stage changes, the entity will get a site.

Also you can import data first and then create sites later on, making data import much faster.

Information on how to use dynamic site creation is here

Note: this feature failed our final quality control and is therefore excluded from the planned release. It will be released soon, when test results are satisfactory.

Security replication

Security replication has been optimised with the use of event receivers. Even solutions using many security rules and with a lot of module entities will perform security replication significantly faster. This also means instant deployment of security rules.

The old "scheduled job" engine is still in use and relevant when not using security ruled. This engine has too been optimised for speed and now performs significantly faster.

The site creation "job administration interface" has been improved.

Three new information fields have been added, to assist in monitoring security rules deployment. Among other things it provides administrators the ability to create worksflows in order to get notifications if security replication is not deployed correctly. More information on this here
