Smart Office 10.2.1 Hot Fix 6 is released

Last week we released update 6 for Smart Office Build 10.2.1.0.54. It has some nice new features that you should know about, especially for Lawson customers but also general performance improvements. You will notice performance improvements if you are running large Mashups but also in both Lawson and M3 Forms.

I’ve also added a new link to a new blog from iStone that you might find interesting, M3 Usability Blog.

Special thanks to Vince for the Lawson update below. For more Smart Office and Lawson related information be sure to follow the Infor Lawson Technology blog.

For additional information regarding Infor Smart Office Hot Fix 6 (Build 10.2.1.0.54) and a list of bug fixes and enhancements see KB article 1626878 on Infor Xtreme.

Lawson Import / Export tool

There are a few different tools for exporting and importing. There is a stand alone tool called Mango Admin that we have written about before – but it has it’s limitation as for example M3 and Lawson has other user related data as well and the Mango Admin only exports data on the Smart Office server. There is the export / import manager in Smart Office for settings and predefined widgets (with meta-data for Lawson widgets). But there are also other types of user data such as scripts and personlization files and for M3 and Lawson those files are located on the MUA / Lawson application server. M3 has the Personalizations tool and a Files tool that can export scripts and personlization files separately.  As of 10.2.1.0.54 Lawson has a new great  tool that allows administrators or anyone granted access via their Role to export to a zip file of the various personalization files stored on the Lawson application server. Once exported, this file can then be used to import the files to another server.

Because many personalization files are associated with a Data Area and often the Data Area on the target server will be named differently than the Data Area on the source server, a dialog for ‘mapping’ the names and specifying which Data Areas to process is also provided.

Language Translation

For Languages other than English, a Translation Maintenance screen with several tabs is available to translate various phrases and messages defined in the system.  A page size can be selected to set the number of records returned. And columns with a filter field can be filtered much like filters work elsewhere within Lawson screens.

To edit a phrase or message simply click on the Edit icon or the text under Translation:

When done editing on a particular tab, click the Save toolbar button to save changes for that tab. No reminder to save changes will be presented, but the Save button is only enabled if there are pending changes and each line with a pending change will be highlighted with a yellow icon on the left edge.
