Dear WorkPoint partners and customers
WorkPoint A/S is proud to announce a new release of WorkPoint 365 software, version 18.104.22.168 (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.
New this time is the Favorites tab within the Express panel, for easy access and navigation to items used frequently.
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.
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 (see photo).
Please follow the links below to see more of the new features in WorkPoint365.
As usual, I would like to thank all of the WorkPoint users and partners for continuing to provide us with good and useful feedback - this is crucial in order for us to continue developing software that adds business value and competitive advantages to your organizations. So keep it coming, we are listening.

Support for multi-site collection
Get intelligent scalability in WorkPoint 365 to support very large data requirements.
E.g. when you have a lot of information to store this feature will when first setup allow you to fit and grow perfectly in the WorkPoint 365 without a lot of involvement of technical staff.
Get overview of critical business information and data flexibility by linking business module items together. E.g. multiple stakeholders linked to a project for a given company. A neat way to model scenarios for a structire where business entities can be interrelated within the WorkPoint 365 which provides the customers with more flexible solutions.
Enhanced Performance and usability
We have done a lot of enhancements in the existing functionalities to make the use of WorkPoint 365 a more smooth experience. E.g.
- an enhanced version of the site buffering feature (i.e. much faster site provisioning than standard SharePoint Online) with better overview and administration - read more.
- an enhanced version of the Tab View Web Part (i.e. the tab web part showing entity content) with filtering options so that content can be filtered and contextualized. E.g. taking an overall approach to Task Management showing tasks from a central task list but only regarding this specific entity.
- an enhanced version of the MyTools menu to support easier menu administration through assisted configuration.
- an enhanced version of the Data aggregation feature to support easier administration through assisted configuration.
- an enhanced version of our breadcrumb to support more in-depth navigation and also support for navigation in behind-the-scenes SharePoint administrative pages.
- An enhanced document search to quickly find documents within a specific scope. E.g. finding a document on the entire solution or the present site.
Support for fast and easy navigation in WorkPoint 365 with favorites in our Express panel (the slide panel in the right-hand side of WorkPoint). E.g. when you have customers or projects that you work on all the time this will save time every time you need to find them in WorkPoint 365.
Improved document search
We have made it easier for you to search for documents and files in WorkPoint 365.
Support for data inheritance on more lists types and more options behind the inheritance. E.g. get metadata automatically tagged on your items from the entity where they are stored and increase findability.
Enhanced Numbering service
Now you get support for more control of the numbering in WorkPoint 365. E.g. you can now specify different number sequences on different lists within a business module.
Integration with ERP
Support to integrate directly to your ERP of choice (e.g. MS Dynamics AX and MS Dynamics NAV) through our WorkPoint web service API and customizable components. E.g. synchronize master data from Dynamics AX to WorkPoint 365 to avoid double registration and get access to WorkPoint 365 from inside your Dynamics AX.
Video Training Portal
You can get support for video training in our online WorkPoint 365 channel. E.g. reduce costs and time for training in the organization implementing WorkPoint 365.
