My name is Shan Molu and I'm the current product manager for Infor Homepages. I'd like to get some insight on how you all are using Homepages and what your Homepages look like. For anyone interested in sharing, do you mind showing a screenshot of your Homepages set up? I'm also interested in learning which widgets you are commonly using, and which Homepages features are being used (mandatory pages, default pages, featured content, etc.).
This information will help prioritize items on our roadmap, as well as potentially add new functionality to the application.
I think this could be beneficial for other users in the forum, but if you want to send this to me directly feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I've written a few widgets for our team to hit APIs and simplify processes for the team. For example a widget to pull a customer list, allow the user to select it, then with one click -- Run an AR open items report and reprint all invoices that are past due into a PDF for the customer to review. Another widget uses an API call to get a list of all open cartons in the warehouse to be sure our TWL processes have met their deadlines and ship the orders. We also use homepages for BI graphs and dashboards of KPI data. One challenge is adding pages to users logins as an administrator, I'd like to be able to impersonate a user vs logging in as that person to setup their specific options and page layouts.
Hopefully after you learn a little bit about the Infor OS products, you'll feel a bit more fulfilled about your investment. We do offer many resources on Infor Campus to teach customers about our products. We've also created shorter walkthroughs of our products that are available on our Vimeo page. This album has videos for a majority of our Infor OS products, so if there was something else you were interested in like Infor Document Management, Chat, or Coleman you can find them there.
The Homepages specific video is here: https://vimeo.com/album/3620345/video/276522210
I hope you find these resources useful, if you have any questions let me know.
Hi Stevemac, your comment seems very interesting as you have created very useful widgets . We are also using homepages to show the standard widgets like Task, Alerts, Insider Posts but never customize or created a new One. I have also opened a incident with infor to ask if we can create our own widgets and customize them according to our requirement but they replied its not possible to create/customize a widget and you can only use the standard widgets available. I am more interested to know how you have created these widgets and what skill set require to do this? We are also using Infor BI but not using any BI widget as I can not see any widget related to Infor BI. if you help me that would be very much appreciable. Thanks
I tried following your link to Infor's Vimeo page, but there are no videos there that I can see (see attachement). Do you need a certain membership to be able to see the videos?
