2.1 Functions

000.png How Fast is bxp? - The average page size of bxp is around 11KB but of course this can be affected by the amount of content that is contained within the page been accessed. All images and style sheets are cached where possible in order to reduce load time.

As bxp is a SaaS solution and is accessed entirely through a web browser, the capacity of the users own internal network can greatly affect the speed and load time of content within bxp. We've created an article which can help you diagnose any potential issues within your own internal network if you discover that bxp is running slow. http://www.bxpsoftware.com/wixi/index.php?title=How_fast_is_bxp%3F

000.png Interface Bars - The I Want To Bar is an interface bar within bxp. It's made up of four sections "Reminders" "Change" "Help" "eCourse". http://www.bxpsoftware.com/wixi/index.php?title=The_I_Want_To_bar

This bar is completely custom and can be tailored to include your own personal buttons and links. http://www.bxpsoftware.com/wixi/index.php?title=Interface_-_Building_your_own_asset_bar

002.png MetaData - MetaData is a data retrieval module within bxp that can pull data from numerous sources into bxp. It can then transform this data into reports and also has the ability of transferring data into other systems.

There are four stages associated with MetaData, "Retrieve", "Input", "Process" and "Output". MetaData can be a complicated process and may require expertise. http://www.bxpsoftware.com/wixi/index.php?title=MetaData_-_Overview

3 Fixes

3.1 Logic

038.png There have been a few modifications and improvements to the Excel form creation / load process.

  • Stack auto sets to run, so no need to show Set Working Outcome as part of a sales pitch. Form builds and is ready to go instantly.
  • Move Next Record bar also turns on instantly, which makes it easier for users to check that their data loaded.
  • Main Menu > Form Management > Form - Primary Management > Form - Create from Excel

038.png There has been a small modification to the Form Management console.

  • If you use Question Management, the top Item "All Settings" now shows all form settings.
  • Main Menu > Form Management > Form - Primary Management > Form - Edit

038.png Outcome editing got a little more interesting and a bit more usable.

  • Listing shows all outcomes, sorted by live, then by order, then by name alphabetically
  • Wixi links added to show features of outcomes more easily
  • Main Menu > Form Management > Form - Outcome Manager > Outcome - Edit

020.png When you create a new project through the Time Tracker Module, you are automatically brought to the security part of "Add users to project"

  • Main Menu > Time Tracker > Management > Add Project

061.png 030.png The interval for generating Trend Reports is now remembered for next use

  • Main Menu > Data Profiling > Instant - Visualisations > Visualisation - Quality - Trending Report

000.png Rich text editor has now been updated to facilitate tags for putting in FLV / SWF objects.

4 Security

016.png 000.png New users must change their password when they first log in, as must existing users who have had their password reset.

016.png The failed login report now has summary totals at the top of the page.

  • Main Menu > System Access Management > Security Reports > Security > Login Report - Failed Logins
  • Main Menu > System Access Management > Security Reports > Security > Login Report - Failed Logins - IP restricted

016.png You can now change the grouping / ordering of the modules in Add User / Edit user scenarios. Add the querystring parameter

  • Main Menu > System Access Management > User Administration > Add User - Security Details Only
  • /security/userUser_Add_Security-details.asp?strOrdering=ByArea
  • /security/userUser_Edit_Security-details.asp?ID=1&strOrdering=ByArea

016.png We have made it possible for clients to specify more than one CSS sheet, simply by separating the URLs with commas

  • Main Menu > System Access Management > User Administration > Add User - Security Details Only > Interface Options > CSS
  • Main Menu > System Access Management > System Management > System Settings > User Interface > CSS

036.png The KeyStat refresh rate is now configurable which causes resubmit of form. This is very useful for wallboard reporting when the report must be kept up to date constantly.

  • Main Menu > KeyStats > KeyStat - Workbook - Add > Refresh Rate

016.png Outcome Security can now add multiple outcomes to multiple users at the same time.

  • Main Menu > System Access Management > Security - Content Access > Form Outcome Security - Multiple Add Users to Outcomes
