Tabbed Views

Flexible Console Layout

The user can fully customize the layout of the main PROLIN Smart Client console. Elements can be relocated or hidden.

Increased flexibility at log-on

A user can choose between: “Sign in using the default account” and “Let me choose which account to use”. The second option presents users with a list of their available accounts so they can choose which to use for that session.

Dockable Action Windows

The window containing the data from a certain action (i.e., Open calls for this caller) can be docked in the data form. When users navigate to another record the data in the Action Window is updated as well.

Multiple conditions for format rules

In PROLIN Smart Client it is possible to define multiple conditions per Format Rule for views. This enables users to make more complex queries.

Attachments for history lines for all functions

In PROLIN Smart Client it is possible to link attachments to history lines with all entities. The attachment functionality for history lines works in the same way as attachments for entities.

Single Sign On (SSO)

PROLIN Smart Suite supports Single Sign On, using authentication with your Windows credentials to access the PROLIN Power Server.

Direct editing of authorization settings in roles

In the new role editor it is now possible to directly edit the authorizations for that role using the graphical overview. If you click on an icon in the Read, Write, Create and Delete columns it alternates. If it is a green check mark and you click on it, it changes to the red icon. If an icon has a padlock in it, it means that the setting is controlled from a higher level setting.

It also supports the one-window editing dialog which was introduced with PROLIN Smart Client.

Strongly improved rules designer

The designer for UI rules (now called “Client-side Rules”) and the DB rules (now called “Server-side Rules) has been dramatically improved. Instead of having to go through an unclear set of wizard pages to add or to modify a rule, you are now presented a single window which gives an immediate overview of all attributes of a rule.
