Report Prompt With Variable String

When a report is run, you can now use a variable or a field value when presenting a prompt to the end user This is very useful if you need to ask the end user for different input the same report, depending on other criteria. For example, you may want to tell the end user to enter a Date, perhaps Listed Date if one set of criteria is met, or Delinquency Date if another set is met. Previously you could only use a literal string when displaying the prompt, such as, "Please enter the Date." Now when the report is run, it can evaluate and display "Please enter the Delinquency Date" in one case, and "Please enter the Listed Date" in another case. This is just one small example. The possibilities are endless!

Export External Libraries

When exporting the full database, the user will now be asked if they want to export the external reports and impexes.

When upgrading, new devices will be created to accommodate them. The prefix on the alternate library names, x00 or r00 may change if there are already alternate libraries on the server containing the destination database.

After upgrading, normal maintenance will be performed on them as well. This includes rebuilding optional keys, printable information lists and import field definitions.

Web Dialer Send File Number

A new command line argument /w2file has been implemented for passing the Debtor File Number in Web Predictive Dialer, instead of the Phone Number.

Users will be able to pop Collect! by File Number. If phone numbers appear multiple times in the database, often for different debtors, this new setting enables you to know exactly which account the dialer has called. Enabling the dialer to send a file number results in the correct Debtor screen displayed to the collector.

Please refer to Help Topic, Web Predictive Dialer for details.

Web Host File Upload

The Web Host is now able to process uploaded files. The Web Host is able to receive a file and place it in the appropriate Debtor attachment folder, using the supplied record type name and the File Number. The user must have a valid session cookie which is obtained by logging in.
