OL Connect 1.8 is the first version that contains features aimed at improving the way specific solutions can be implemented – in this case: Proof of Delivery.
But that’s not all of course, many bug fixes and improvements requested by customers, partners and YOU are also included.
Here is an overview of some of the new features:
Dynamically set Media background images: It is now possible to dynamically set the path for media backgrounds (aka Virtual Stationery).
Native support for Excel (XLS, XLSX) files: The DataMapper is now able to handle XLS and XLSX files natively.
Job Creation and Output
PrintShop Mail Connect: For PrintShop Mail Connect, the speed limit in the license will be applied differently, resulting in faster printing. Instead of applying the licensed speed only to the last step of the print process (output creation), the speed limit is now applied to the whole print process; the time needed for data mapping, content creation and job creation is now considered as well. Output creation can now run as fast as is needed to have the entire process complete at the licensed speed.
Generating all contents using JSON instead of data records: With Connect 1.8, all Connect Create Content tasks now have the option of using a JSON string. The new feature makes it much easier to create Web or Email status pages that are delivered to the end user almost instantly, which is a must in today’s digital age.
