JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is at it again with new updates that will streamline your business process and simplify your day-to-day business transactions.

User Experience Updates

Mobile Time Entry gives employees the ability to submit their time while mobile. The biggest benefit is employees can submit their time wherever they are, whether they are in the office or working on site. Employers can also filter the options on their employee’s time card, so employees only see the options relevant to their job, creating a simpler, more efficient time entry system.

This is also the first release of MAF that supports the latest version of Apple XCode, XCode 9, and updates the embedded Cordova platform engines for iOS and Android.

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Release 184.108.40.206
JD Edwards Orchestrator function, notification framework, and JD Edwards Personalized framework have been improved to further streamline internal and external business processes.
The below advancements in Orchestrator have helped to simplify day-to-day business procedures and create a more user-friendly experience.
- Process Recorder gives developers the ability to create a form service by recording their step-by-step actions within the EnterpriseOne application. The recording process can be a single form or chain of forms and, once created, can be edited in Orchestrator Studio. Recording as opposed to manually creating the form service results in less error, less training, and allows more citizen developers to participate in the process of generating a form service.
- Report makes it possible for orchestrations to launch a report as an orchestration step, therefore taking the manual labor out of running the report and allowing it to run automatically. Automatically running the report enables the report output file to be manipulated using the File Transfer feature.
- File transfer admits an orchestration step to move a file to a given location using REST, FTP, or SFTP protocols. Dynamically transferring files allows users to perform at the same level of functionality without the development and maintenance of a custom solution.
- Confirmed compliance of organizations will offer a set of logged data and possible errors about specific events. This data will provide administrators the ability to analyze data and give them the power to form solutions or ideas based upon the data analysis.
- Orchestration Studio Version 6.1 focuses on increasing usability and enhancing for forms of service. Version 6.1 enables multiple equipment records to be created through a single orchestration and the ability to use the same form of service in different applications based on the version picked. Finally, version 6.1 automatically loads your forms of service input, saving you manual labor and time.
Tools 220.127.116.11 provides users the ability to subscribe to relevant alerts and messages that will be automatically delivered to them.
- Assigned subscriptions permits managers, team leaders, and authoritative figures to designate messages to their team. They have the ability subscribe their employees to certain messages and choose whether the messages are mandatory or not. This allows teams to be on the same page and subscribed to the same posts without team members having to subscribe individually.
- Performance characteristics demonstrates how the Notification features will function under various load scenarios.
JD Edwards Personalization Framework
The personalization framework updates will give citizen developers the power to enrich the extensibility frameworks, therefore helping customers personalize and extend their solutions art low costs.
- Personalization of menu exits will simplify the EnterpriseOne form. Personalized menu exits will enable individual industry roles and requirements to be met because users can show, hide, and rename their exits based on their needs.
- Personalization of grid labels through the Grid Format Manager will prove beneficial because you can be more specific and descriptive with your grid labels in both table and list view. In turn it will help new users easily understand the context and content of the application.
