What’s New In RealBRIDGE 3.0More Features, More Functions, More Value
By: Scott Keith - 1/22/2001
The following are the major release additions and improvements in RealBRIDGE 3.0:
Automated Screen Process Manager
The RealBRIDGE Process Manager allows the user to set up a series of related screens that can then be run automatically. This feature provides for automation of model workflow. Any RealBRIDGE screen can be placed into a Process and Processes can be run at any time. Processes can also be run from Task Scheduling software. (see Schedule Batch Execution below)
Scheduled Batch Execution
RealBRIDGE and SyncUP for RealBRIDGE can now accept command line parameters at execution. This will allow these programs to be set up in Task Scheduler software for batch processing. RealBRIDGE can be setup to run either a single Process or a Backup for a specific model and version. SyncUp can be setup to run all sources assigned to a SyncSource group code. A new field has been added to SyncSources to allow specific sources to be tagged with a user-defined group code.
Advanced Web Download Compression
RB-WEB,which allows any RealBRIDGE model to be deployed over the Internet at the touch of a button, has been enhanced to support advanced template compression routines. Preliminary timing estimates have shown an increase in the speed of the workbook download of over 40%.
Template Range Manager
The Template Report Manager has been replaced with an upgraded Range Manager. The Range Manager allows the analyst to set up various types of template ranges (PRINT, GOTO, HIDE/SHOW) that the user can select from when viewing any screen that is linked to the template. The “Reports” Tab on Template Maintenance has been renamed “Ranges” and has been cleaned up to support the new range types and to display required range setup information in a more organized layout.
Enhanced Mapping Features
RealBRIDGE 3.0 has many new features aimed at improving the speed, functionality and ease-of-use on the mapping screen. These enhancements include consolidation maps support selection of various consolidation functions, (e.g. max, min, average, count), Template Mode mapping has been enhanced to include MapItem AutoFill, LinkFiles MI#’s and SubTotal Redirect locations display as “SR#”, single row multi-imbedded maps copy the row formats to the total line if the multi-imbed flag is checked, improved save routines decrease time required for map compilation, provide improved error checking and messages on compilation warnings and map name changes resets the map name displayed in the window title
New Administration Reports
We have added several new reports to help with the administration of models. 1) Automated Screen Documentation: Two new reports (list and form style) print the schema organization (template, ranges and maps ) related to screens and are run from the Main Menu and the Screens:Edit menu. 2) Template Result Overrides: This report displays all fields that have result overrides on the active screen for a selected entity. From this report, the user can print the list of overrides and clear any selected overrides. 3)Data Audit List: This Report shows which user changed what data and when they changed it. This report is run from the Version screen for a selected set of entities.
In addition to the changes above, the following other changes have been included in Version 3.0
