WorkPoint 365

Dutch and Norwegian languages

Until today, WorkPoint products have been available in two languages, English and Danish. Now WorkPoint365 and WorkPoint Express can work in any language. As of this release, Norwegian and Dutch is added to the list of available languages. More language packs will follow in the future.
Do you have specific needs for a certain language, please contact WorkPoint A/S

New architecture of WorkPoint365!

One of several major initiatives in WorkPoint, is improving the way WorkPoint365 works with Office365. The aim is to provide the closest possible integration with the Office365 products such as Groups, Teams, Flow, etc. Over the coming months, the architecture of WorkPoint365 will therefore change. With this release, we have introduced that a WorkPoint365 solution can be configured to create a full site collection when a module site is created. As opposed to today, where only a single site is created. This, among other things improves security between module sites.
To ensure speedy creation of site / site collection, we have enhanced the buffer site feature so it now also features buffer site collections.
To manage these new features, we have changed the module settings page in the administration.

Module Information Fields – improved search

To improve search and meta data inheritance, we have added two fields to all business modules. These fields are:

  • Business module name
  • Current stage name

These fields can be used for search and hence make the search results better.

Stage gate constraints: query values from list items

So far it has not been possible to base stage gate constraints on values on the module item itself. This is now changed, with an expansion making it possible to use values in the module item fields in the stage constraints. This will allow for more advanced business process management using stages.

New scheduled jobs for data aggregation

It is now possible to schedule jobs for aggregating data. This is helpful for example when aggregating or filtering date fields, e.g. “count tasks with due date > today”.

Security trimming in tab control, footer menu and navigation menu

Hitherto security rules have not been affecting these items. While users might not have had access to module content, they have been able to know the existence of e.g. a HR module. This has now changed, so security rules will entirely remove these menu items subject to user rights.

Integration to WorkPoint Help Center

As part of our initiative to improve user experience, WorkPoint now features a direct link to our online help center.

WorkPoint National Archiving

– provide data and documents for government archives

The WorkPoint Archiving is a separate add-on to WorkPoint365 and WorkPoint on premises.
It is a standard software system for extracting data to national archives. It is specifically developed for those government agencies or other public sector organisations, who are obliged regularly to deliver documents and files to national archives. Getting the correct data retrieved as well as exported from the system and converted to the correct format is a serious undertaking. Now WorkPoint can ease this process considerably.

At this point the service can be used with National Archives in Denmark and Iceland, but it has the potential to be expanded to meet requirements in other countries.

The WorkPoint Archiving will be separately priced in the price list.

For more information on WorkPoint Archiving, please find a product brochure here.

Email Manager

Content search – Email Manager emails
Users can now use WorkPoint Express for free-text searches in the body of emails stored in Email Manager or Email Manager 365.

Improved product quality management

During the first 6 months of 2017, WorkPoint product development has been focusing on changing and improving our product test and quality. Processes have been improved, new systems put in place, and the result is significant.
Today we have eliminated over 100 bugs in WorkPoint products. Also we are detecting more than three times as many bugs in tests than previously – bugs that will then never reach the end users.
We hope you will feel this improved product quality when working with WorkPoint products – and by all means, if a flaw still has slipped through the net, please report it to support@workpoint.dk, giving as many details as possible, and we will get on to it.
