Case Study from Adobe!

imageWe are all proud to announce that Adobe decided to do a case study on Proactive Software (Us…)! We are heavy users of Photoshop, ColdFusion and other Adobe tools and have a huge respect for Adobe so this made our day!

Feel welcome to read the case study below:

Here are the pages they added us to:

http://www.adobe.com/products/coldfusion-enterprise.html and here http://www.adobe.com/products/coldfusion-family/showcase.html

On a personal note, I’ve been using Photoshop since version 1.0 so have had a longstanding relationship with Adobe products. They work!

So it’s a massive thanks from the team at ProWorkflow to the guys at Adobe! You guys are awesome, keep the solid tools coming!

Regards,

Julian Stone, CEO

New Email Notifications!

 

SNAGHTML20c44f6From this Monday – July 18th 2016, the look and information around notifications with ProWorkflow will change!

This update is based on customer feedback from those who wanted to be able to make their notifications simpler with options to keep different people up to date.

What is changing?

We are replacing the “Settings > Email Alerts Settings/Builder” pages with a simpler page called “Settings > Notifications“!

Notifications settings page

Improvements in group notifications!

Previously you could only notify “Assignee” or “Creator”, now you can keep Staff, Clients, Contractors and Managers updated automatically!

As the notifications will have the option to go to your clients, you can add your company signature to keep the professional yet personalized look.

The content and types of emails that are sent have now been simplified and standardized, with a key change being able to see when Project or Task details are modified

Note: This does not include “Description” or “Custom Forms”.

Taskupdates

Summary emails!

We also wanted to stop sending multiple emails, so now you will find that when changes or summaries are sent of projects and tasks, you’ll get just the one summary email!

image

What do I need to do?

This coming Monday, for you to get the most out of this update your administrator should look over your new Notification Settings page.

We will have changed the options which do the same things for you i.e. if you have all notifications set to off they will remain off.

If you have enabled or disabled alerts, it will set them as the same, but with different groups:

● Assignee will be selected for Staff, Clients and Contractors.

● Creator will be replaced by Manager.

There are some new options, which you might want to look at and see which groups you would like to notify.

If you get stuck or have questions, please contact us!

 

API V3 Update

API-447x300

In the blink of an eye, we have been in business for 14 years! From the first prototype of ProWorkflow to the full solution we provide today, we couldn’t be more proud :-)

As part of the regular updates we release every quarter on the core application, our API has also undergone tremendous changes and updates too.

The majority of clients who use our API today are using our latest version, ProWorkflow API V3. This is not only the currently supported version, but also the most feature rich and fastest version of our API.

The latest API V3 is miles ahead of its predecessors and have the following benefits:

  • Ongoing support and maintenance
  • Newer API methodology
  • Uses JSON for data transfer
  • Ability to add custom API fields for extra data storage
  • Updated documentation

As of the end of December we have decided to discontinue all usage of our API V1 and V2. For all existing customers who are using older versions of the API for custom developed add-ons to ProWorfklow, now is the time to start looking into making changes and aligning these add-ons to our API V3.

API V3‘s documentation can be found here and an index of calls can be found here.

Our friendly and experienced support staff will proactively contact you to help you look into the changes required to continue using your custom add-ons to ProWorkflow.

If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact the team: sales@proworkflow.com.
