Have you created web customizations? Breaking changes ahead!

We would like to know if our roadmap includes changes that will impact you!

Current development plans involve merging common SuperOffice Sales and Service pages, including Selection, Company (Contact) and Contact (Person).

The plan includes replacing the existing XML Configuration files that define the Selection, Company, and Contact pages with a newer UI technology that will break all existing customizaions on the Selection, Company and Contact pages. That means all existing SOML alterations, including configuration changes using merge files, will stop working on those pages. 

Does this affect you? If so, we would like to know more about your existing customizations. As it relates to those pages, what other types of customizations are included to support those customizations, i.e. Datahandlers, AjaxMethods, inline javascript, etc? 

Please either reply to this post, or email sdk@superoffice.com with your feedback, using WebCustomizations in the subject line.

 

RE: Have you created web customizations? Breaking changes ahead!

This sounds like a reasonable move. We haven't got too many customizations using the web-approach. The .config / .merge file functionality has been difficult to use, and hasn't gained a lot of adoption on our end.

The things I can think of that we've used it for are:

- Adding webpanels with "Custom Archive" type of functionality.

- Adding menu options to the sale Task-button.

- Hide the birthday field in Person dialog

- Hide Service button in Navigator

I'm sure we've done some more stuff as well that I can't remember right now.

The main customization we do using .merge files to SuperOffice Web is adding extra tab's for a filtered view of document/activitiy's (on company/person level)

Other changes we have made using .merge files is making SAINT indicator images visible on the more tab of a company/project
