A new project I'm working on is requesting 'push notifications' to the users without using email. I'm unsure if the built-in Inbox feature will work as it's very close to email. I'm trying to avoid having a user keep a specific form open if possible. I also do not want to use "NET SEND" as a) it hasn't been totally reliable here and b) it isn't a "cloud ready" solution. Has anyone had any experience with this? What did you do?
I did a Form based Timer (.Net) in SL8 that worked really well. It monitored our Job Finish transactions by serial number in close to real time, by assembly line which is marked on the Job, and combines that finish data with production target data that supervisors would "build" each morning based on the schedule (manual, not Scheduling module).
Unfortunately something is broken and the Timer does not execute the same way in CS9.01. There are a lot of new dashboard type components / Forms now though, and I'd like to revisit this project. As a reacharound I've left those stations on SL8. I'll put some fire on this one.
How far did you get?
