InVision 2.5.0 Released

In addition to a number of new features and enhancements, the most important change in 2.5 is a change we’ve made to the core component of the system which handles the identity of the data rows in the database. When upgrading an existing instance, the installer will automatically do all the necessary steps, but it is very important that you back up the Solution database before upgrading in case an error occurs (network, disk, etc).

Custom report menu links

As of build 2762 of InFront 3.2 we support creating custom links behind the gear icon on every report. The functionality is configured by entering an anchor tag <a ….. />,  or a plugin name  e.g. <mycustomlink>, on the report property called “Menu custom HTML or plugins”.

Example : The following value :

<a href=”http://www.profitbase.com”>Profitbase link</a>

Will result in a report menu looking like the following:

In the bottom of the report menu we now have a new link that on click will open a new tab in your web browser leading to the www.profitbase.com web site.

If more advanced functionality is needed including dynamic content and translation, a plugin must be defined configured into the given property

InVision 2.4.0 Released

With version 2.4, we’re introducting version 0.1 of the new InVision Desktop Designer that lets you develop Web Functions and customize the Home Page Layout without editing the deployed .cshtml-file. We will gradually port (and improve) every feature from the SL designer to the new desktop designer, but for the time being, you’ll have to use both tools to develop InVision solutions.  All significant new platform features will be added to the desktop designer, while the SL designer will only be getting minor enhancements and bug fixes.

NOTE! If you are upgrading to 2.4 from a previous version, you need to update Profitbase Installation Manager to the latest version (1.3.1.0) first.
