  • Many new icons installed throughout that support the higher detailed graphics used by the Office 2007 and Vista interfaces.

  • Made use of Office 2007 Ribbon wherever possible. This ribbon is much more graphical than the former toolbars and menus.

  • These codes can be used to help classify tasks, or can be used to track repair issues. When used for issue tracking, can also be used for predictive maintenance.

  • New Completion/Status E-mail feature. As repair types of work orders are completed, the work requester is sent a copy of the work order with updated information.

  • As new repair types of work orders or work requests are added to the system a designated email recipient is sent a notice that these new documents were added to the system.

  • Added the ability to print every work order in the Scheduler’s list when the list contains 30 or less records.

  • This should be especially useful when used in conjunction with the Custom Sort Wizard.

  • Added the ability to print purchasing documents in both portrait and landscape formats in the Purchasing and Receiving module.

  • Added “Tool Tip” messages throughout the system to give the user feedback to what a control or feature does. This addition along with the new Ribbon Bar makes the application even more users friendly.

  • Added a new “Document Preview” in the Personal Manager’s Personal Journal. This makes locating a specific document much easier.

  • New HR Calendar added. View, print and edit your Training, Vacations, Renewals, and Leave schedules.

  • Added Links to external documents within the Procedures and Solutions module. These work just like the links found elsewhere in the application.

  • Added a new cell type of Checkbox to the Forms and Permits module, plus two new forms. Bloodborn Pathogen Exposure and Lockout-Tagout form.
