QAD 2013 – Standard Edition
This maintenance release includes all ECOs closed between May 21, 2012, and May 20, 2013. This section highlights a few changes introduced with ECOs that modify product features.
.NET UI Version
This release of Standard Edition is supported by the 2013 SE (2.9.6) version of the QAD .NET UI.
For information, see Release Notes: QAD .NET User Interface.
Process Maps Installation
QAD Process Maps 3.1 is now available from the QAD Store ( http://store.qad.com ) for use with QAD Standard Edition 2013. The process maps have been updated and redesigned to include the following:
Easy On Boarding (EOB) maps — Many new maps for QAD Easy On Boarding are now included.
Integrated Customization Toolkit (ICT) maps — Many new maps for QAD Integrated Customization Toolkit are now included.
New Color Scheme — The new color scheme has designated colors for all the supply chain processes.
Enhanced Navigation — The navigation structure was flattened, and the process map footer makes navigation from map to map easier.
Updated Vertical Maps — The new version features eight updated vertical maps with more granularity than ever before.
New End-to-End Maps — The high-level end-to-end maps Quote to Cash, Procure-to-Pay, and Plan to Perform were added.
Improved Supply Chain Process View — The supply chain process view was enhanced with the new categories Design, Enable, and Engage.
Linkage to the Document Library — Each node allows you to search the QAD Document Library with a click of a button to find relevant user guides, installation guides, or training guides.
Note: The new, redesigned process maps are not included with the QAD .NET UI release media. Please visit the QAD Store to download the latest process map package.
Process Maps and Internet Explorer
Note the following when editing and viewing process maps in Internet Explorer:
With Internet Explorer 8 and 9, Print Preview is not supported for process maps and they do not print correctly.
By default, the Process Viewer uses Silverlight rather than SVG.
The Process Editor uses SVG.
Important: Internet Explorer 8 and 9 do not include the Adobe SVG plugin, which is required for using the QAD .NET UI’s Process Editor. If using Internet Explorer 8 or 9, you will need to install the SVG plugin. If you have not installed the SVG plugin on your local machine, the Process Editor will display an error message when you try to edit a process map.
QAD includes the SVG plugin with QAD .NET UI in the client directory on the home server (in HomeServerURL /client/SVGView.exe) and includes it with the QAD .NET UI client when the client is installed. For example, you can find it here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\QAD\QAD Enterprise Applications\SVGView.exe
After installing SVG, restart the QAD .NET UI and open the Process Editor. After a moment, it will ask you to verify the use of SVG, and then you can proceed to use the Process Editor.
