WorkPoint 365 Version 3.5.0.0

Article last updated on the 24th of September 2019.

WorkPoint 365 version 3.5.0.0 is being released on the 24th of September 2019.

New Features

Job scheduler

As Microsoft will deprecate the Azure Scheduler as per September 30th 2019, WorkPoint has developed a new scheduler to control the execution of scheduled jobs. The new scheduler will function similarly as the Azure Scheduler and will not affect any business operations.

Documentation for this feature will be released on a later date. Until then, please email WorkPoint support at support@workpoint.dk for help regarding this feature.

Inheritance from Parent to Child entities

The extension of the Data Inheritance feature will allow users to inherit metadata from a parent entity to a child entity in WorkPoint 365. This is currently possible in WorkPoint Server through a special custom field type. In WorkPoint 365 it is currently possible to inherit additional fields to a child entity through Additional Lookup Fields, but this causes performance issues and is limited to only certain data types. This makes possible better inheritance of important metadata across entities.

Categorized webjobs

WorkPoint is continuously working on improving the performance of our existing products. One of the ways that we have done this is by assigning a priority to all jobs which are initiated within the system by users. The prioritization scheme also distinguishes between long and short running jobs meaning that from now on, high-priority short-running jobs will be executed before any long-running low-priority jobs. At the same time, customers with a dedicated app will now be able to indicate whether their solutions are part of a production environment or a test environment and thus how resources should be split between all environments on their app. This allows for appropriate allocation of resources for all production environments, securing that heavy jobs in test environments does not affect business critical production.

Documentation for this feature will be released on a later date. Until then, please email WorkPoint support at support@workpoint.dk for help regarding this feature.

Extension of Data Aggregation

The Data Aggregation feature has been available in WorkPoint 365 for a long time, and now users will be able to aggregate data from multiple values into one column which will of the same type as the aggregated columns. The extension of the Data Aggregation feature includes adding a new aggregation type called “Union”, which provides users with more aggregation options.  

This brings new data aggregation possibilities.

History view of Stages

Organizations may have multiple stages for entities such as customers and projects, and while all stages may be relevant for the entities in the beginning, some of these may become irrelevant as the projects or the relationship between the organization and the customer develops. The current Stage view displays all the stages that the entity may go through. This can create confusion and, in some cases, misleading information about the entities, as the system displays the entities as having been through all stages while this may not be the case.

The History mode shows only the current stage, as well as stages that the work item has gone through. In case of a work item transitioning to a previous stage, this will also be visible in the History view. This grants a more actual display of the stage history of the project/item and also reduces the information load on the project/item site.
