Minor enhancements for the Next® admins and specialists, December 2022

It is no secret that the primary target of our enhancements are the business users, or end users, of Next®. Still, providing ease of use, and increased productivity to those who administrate or configure Next® also makes great sense.

For this release we have collected the following minor enhancements targeted the admins and specialists:


Enhancement
Issue
New functions let you define smarter defaults
NEXT-3764
When you setup Next® you can set defaults and auto-complete on metadata fields to make it easier for the end user to archive their documents with the relevant metadata. With this release we introduce a new source for defaults - Functions. The three built-in functions coming with this release are: Add 12, 24, and 36 months to Contract effective date. This allows you to make smarter default expiry dates for the people adding new contracts. A Function is an easy to use wrapper for more generic "Extractors". You can define your own functions, and many more built-in functions will come.  




Secure that Next® has sufficient memory allocated  
NEXT-4909

Next® is an amazingly fast solution to use. However, If you run your Next® with insufficient memory you will experience Next® as unresponsive and providing you with sub par performance. Eventually, you may even risk your Next® to crash. That is why, when you install a new Next®, the default memory size allocated is now 12 GB. This is a more appropriate size for mid-sized implementations. More demanding implementations will require even more memory. If you run your Next® with less than 12 GB allocated, Next® will notify the Next® System Operations group.






Standard Available contracts table services enhanced with multi value capability
NEXT-4915

The standard table service used to link a contract to other documents (or contracts) now accepts multiple values. 






Next® Document capture preserves the ordering of attachments  
NEXT-4907

When you import documents into Next® using a Document capture and and XML index file, Next® will now preserve the order of the attachments.

    






Data capture in Next® Invoices for NAV DXC edition adds support for Kofax AP Essentials 
NEXT-4900
Using XML translation, we have added the ability to switch from Kofax KTM on prem to Kofax AP Essentials in the cloud for the customers running Next® Invoices for NAV DXC edition - also known as the Industry solution.    

For the techies
