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.

4.Module Dashboard

Agree on Dashboard content

5.Business Alerts

Agree if any Email notifications / Notepad logging is required from system events.

6.Ledger Enquiries – Additional Tabs

Each Ledger Enquiry can show up to 4 pages of information and can be organised by Tabs.

7.General Functionality

a. Real Time Update to Nominal Ledger Required?

b. $TODAY in Reporting

c. Automatic Sign Off

d. Order Processing Document Scroll Bar for Line Processing

e. Improved Application Picklists – 20 Columns of Data with Rule Based Colour Coding
