"What's New" Webinar -  date: 2020-10-21

Watch the recording of our App Manager Version 5 webinar where we discuss the new features in the product.


Version: - date: 2020-10-15

1.This new version includes several significant changes to reduce IrisBG software compatibility issues and improve workflow.

2.App Manager 5 includes multi-version compatibility with IrisBG Desktop starting from IrisBG Desktop version 3.6.4 up to version 4.2.4.

3.There is no longer any binary dependency with IrisBG Desktop and App Manager and we expect there to be far fewer issues with App Manager being incompatible with future upgrades of IrisBG Desktop. This means that users have more flexibility to decide when they install upgrades of either products. Product compatibility relies on the IrisBG data import schema which historically has been very stable. We expect IrisBG to announce breaking changes to the schema if they occur.

4.A license to the IrisBG Data Import feature is now required.

5.To facilitate an independent software installation, the software will now require a seperate database connection to the IrisBG Desktop database. When you configure App Manager 5, you can either use the existing irisBG database connection details or add a seperate database user for the App Manager. If you add a separate database user, read only access is sufficient. More details can be found in the installation guide.

6.Login authentication to App Manager is using the same pincode authentication as Floria Handheld.

7.The new version now includes its own reconciliation screen. In addition to only partially uploading changes, the new version also allows you to revert changed field values to the old value before submitting the changes.

8.If "submit changes" fails, the process will stop. You can identify and exclude the failing entry and retry. The failing entry can be exported to a csv file which can be amended and imported manually. The processing will now allow for partially processed uploads. E.g. entries that are successfully submitted prior to a failed entry will be marked as processed and already be sent to the system.

9.The upload process via IrisBG Data Import is slightly slower than version 4, but all processing can now be done within the App Manager which simplifies the workflow.

10.Improved ability to resolve import issues. If you have any technical issues with an upload, each individual upload can be exported to a CSV file which is formatted for the IrisBG data import. This can be useful to manually resolve import issues related to dropdown incompatibility, etc.

11.App Manager version 5 is compatible with the upcoming Floria Handheld Version 5 which is expected to be made available later in October 2020.

12.This version can be installed and used alongside version 4.x of the App Manager if desired.
