Application Changes
Home Page Menu Item
The home page (set in Tools | Options) displays when you log in to the QAD .NET UI. You can now also access the home page from the menu. In the Applications pane, go to Home Page to open the home page.
Dashboards
Dashboards bring together browses, web pages, business intelligence, and metrics within panels. Each panel offers a quick summary; to find out more, you click on the panel. As a user, you can create, edit, and delete dashboards directly in the QAD .NET UI. To create a new dashboard, in the Applications pane, open Dashboards | Create Dashboard and add panels. You can double or triple the width of panel. You can also copy and edit an existing dashboard. As an administrator, you can share the dashboard with others and assign it to one or more roles. For more information on using dashboards, see the Introduction to QAD Enterprise Applications User Guide. System administrators can change the maximum number of panels allowed in a dashboard, copy dashboards between systems, modify access and display settings. For additional information on configuring dashboards, see the QAD .NET UI Administration Guide.
QAD Sample Dashboards
You can start creating dashboards right away, but you can also get sample dashboards that can be associated with roles in your system. The sample dashboards are available for download from the QAD Store (http://store.qad.com ). To install the sample dashboards, use the package installation tool included with the download. After installing the dashboards, edit the role assignments for dashboards.
Browse Initial Database Query Suppression
Previously, all browses ran with an initial database query, which could cause performance issues with some browses. Now you can configure whether browses run with an initial database query. You can suppress the initial query for all browses or just specified browses. If you suppress all browses, you can then allow only specified browses to run with an initial database query. To configure the system to suppress the initial query in browses, use the following settings in the client session configuration file (client-session.xml):
<Browse>
<!-- Browse specific override -->
<override>
<suppressinitialload>
<!-- To suppress browse launch for specific browses
enter the browseid in the suppressinitialload section.
Use "*" to suppress all
-->
<!--
<id>pp100</id>
<id>gp340</id>
-->
</suppressinitialload>
<doinitialload>
<!-- If "*" used above, allow specific browses to load -->
<!--
<id>mg003</id>
-->
</doinitialload>
</override>
</Browse>
In <suppressinitialload>, you list the IDs of browses whose initial database query you want to suppress or use an asterisk (*) to suppress the initial database query of all browses. If you suppress all, you can then specify exceptions in <doinitialload>, where you list the IDs of browses that you want to run with an initial database query.
Examples
To suppress all browses:
<suppressinitialload>
<all id="*"/>
</suppressinitialload>
To suppress Item Browse (pp100) and Sales Order Browse (so009):
<suppressinitialload>
<id>pp100</id>
<id>so009</id>
</suppressinitialload>
To suppress all browses except Item Browse (pp100), Sales Order Browse (so009), and Supplier View (BCreditor.View):
<suppressinitialload>
<all id="*"/>
</suppressinitialload>
<doinitialload>
<do id="pp100"/>
<do id="so009"/>
<do id="BCreditor.View"/>
</doinitialload>
