Considerations when Upgrading to Datafile 20nn

1.Hardware Considerations

Monitors - Datafile 2016 uses the default Windows font sizing on a workstation (i.e. Same font sizes as Outlook etc.). We recommend a display resolution of 1440 x 900 for optimum screen view. Minimum screen resolution supported is 1024 x 768 dpi

Operating Systems – XP / Vista based operating systems are no longer supported and should not be used with Datafile 2016

Printing – ‘DOS’ legacy style printing methods are not supported in Datafile 2016. Need to ensure printed reports/documents have their page size/font settings set within the report/document config.

2.Landing Page Content

These are a new feature in the software and the content is common for all users. Consideration should be given as to which data items appear on these and whether any business rule colour coding is required.

3.Landing Page Toolbars

This is a new feature in the software and the content is common for all users. Consideration should be given as to which functions are required.
