May 2013 Newsletter

Spring has finally arrived in South Dakota. After a very snowy April we can finally look out our office windows and see some green. Hopefully spring has found you as well. Dispite five school snow days in April we managed to get a new DataLog and ClickFORMS release ready for you to download.

Mapping in the DataLog is finally started! We still have more features to add but you can get started today. Sales can now be geocoded by dropping a pin onto the embedded Google Maps and a report can be generated showing the location of all the geocoded sales in a search. Check out the DataLog Version 3.2.2 Release Notes for more information.

For Enterprise users there were changes to the server so make sure to wait for the update from your IT departments.

DataLog 3.2.2

Version: AgWare DataLog 3.2.2  – Release Notes
Release Date: May 03, 2013

New/Updated

  • Mapping
    • AgWare is excited to release our initial mapping support.  When editing a sale you will see a new “Mapping” section.  This will allow you to set a Latitude and Longitude directly or click on the “Load Map” button to drop a marker onto a Google Map.
    • The Map can be copied to the Clipboard or printed from the edit window.  Under Reports there is also a new option to Map the sales currently visible in the Sales Grid.
    • There are more features on the way.  Our next few releases will keep adding more options to our mapping integration.
  • Permanent Plantings
    • AgWare now has support for Permanent Plantings in the DataLog.  A new table below the Land table is used to enter Permanent Planting data.  The allocation in this section is a Land/Planting combination.  The acres entered here should not be entered into the Land table or in the improvement table.  The combined value is put here and then allocated into the land and planting components.
    • This release includes support for the Permanent Planting Table solely in the DataLog.  Work is  underway to add approach-specific pages for Permanent Plantings in ClickFORMS.
  • Expanded Fields
    • The Grantor, Grantee, and Financing fields can now be expanded to track additional information.  This information is for tracking purposes only.  It will be available in the DataLog but will not be visible in ClickFORMS.
      • Grantor/Grantee: Now have room for a full name and address.
      • Financing: Contains fields to track lender and loan details.
  • Added DataLog Cache ODBC Driver
    • A new menu option Edit –> Manage Add-ins has been added.  This will allow the user to enable or disable the Microsoft Excel Add-in as well as create an ODBC entry for the DataLog cache database.  Users can access the Cache Database to link the DataLog to other databases such as Arc GIS or to use Mail Merge functions with Microsoft Word.
  • Added Land $/Acre to the Sales Grid
  • Improvement Depreciation changed to support decimal places
Fixes/Corrections
  • Increased startup speed.
  • The mouse scroll wheel no longer changes the selected sale view template.
  • Improvement values are not importing into CF when copying a lookup Date Range.
  • Fixed indentation on photo captions in printout.
  • Added Region/Area/Zone to Permanent Planting printout.
  • Changed total labels on Permanent Planting printout to better reflect what they represent.
