  • Article Report: the article report has been improved adding for each shape a picture, the Article and Shape Size, the material code, the Divisor; longer shape names can fit better in the row. The new field Standard Cutting Duration has been added in the article summary.
  • New Database Connection Wizard: The New Database Connection Wizard has been modified to allow the creation of a new connection for an SQL Database in any enterprise local network environment. Now it is possible to create the new connection in an existing network folder, not creating a new one. The complete path may be typed in the text box and not only selected from the browse for folder window: this allows choosing reachable paths using the IP format.
  • Cutting Time Estimator: The Cutting Time Estimator feature has been improved by adding:
    • An internal estimator
    • The possibility to replace the internal estimator with an external estimator.
  • The external estimator may be updated at any time, providing compatibility with Job Manager interface.
  • Export Database (for end-user support): It is possible to export an SQL DB and all the associated files and folders as a .zip file. The feature is provided for support purposes only, i.e. the end-user can export the data base but cannot import it again. This feature is not a substitute of a regular backup of data and databases.
  • Import Database (for end-user support): It is possible to import an SQL Database and all associated files and folders using the Import Database command. The Import Database may only be issued by String or Reseller support people using Reseller or Internal license types. This command is provided for support purposes only and it is not an alternative to regular backups of data.
  • Localization: The Portuguese (Brazil) localization has been added.
  • Material Management (sheets and roll): Now it is possible to add sheets and rolls as materials in stock. Batches can be created, containing rolls, sheets or file defined materials. For regular materials (i.e. sheets and rolls) it is possible to specify a quantity. Various improvements have been made to user experience creating material codes: the main properties may be inherited by child material codes without retyping them. A child material code may be of a different type from its parent, but controls have been added to avoid inconsistency. Now it is possible to export a batch with regular materials.

What's new:

  • Creation a new connection: Creation of Job Manager SQL DB Connections has been improved, to cope with the requirements of a first-installation or a factory upgrade, single computer as well as complex and managed IT infrastructures. Now it is possible:
    • Creating a brand-new JM SQL DB connection if a SQL server is properly installed and available; the software will create the empty JM SQL DB, the empty folder and the connection.
    • Creating a new JM SQL DB connection starting form a previously created empty SQL database and folder.
    • Connecting an existing Job Manager SQL DB, useful when a new JM Client is installed upgrading an existing JM installation.
  • Tools > Database Migration: An assisted procedure has been developed, to ease and speed-up the migration of an existing JM MDB into a new JM SQL DB. The procedure will copy all the data, including the files. At the end of a successful migration the end-user will have a new JM SQL DB connection containing the same information of the MDB one. Please note that the source database shall pass the Check Database Integrity Procedure: only error-free, self-consistent JM DBs can be migrated.
  • Tools > Check Database: Graphic and functional changes have been made to the "Check Database" tool. Improved error fix. The user will have the opportunity to decide which errors to correct. All the Database integrity operations are logged individually, including successful checks; the logs can be found in "[databaseconnectionfolder]/CheckDb-Logs/[sub-folders]".
