Business Layer Training - UI Relationship and debug options
This Business Layer training session explores the relationship between the finPOWER Connect User Interface and the Business Layer and demonstrates some helpful User Interface forms and options. We also look at the different ways in which we can debug Scripts and make use of the now context sensitive, Business Layer Help.

Business Layer Training - Business Layer Basics
This Business Layer training session looks at some of the fundamental principles and structure of Scripts and objects in the Business Layer. We look at the concept of Return Values and why it is so important to check them in our Scripts, as well as explaining Global Collections and how they can be used to optimise our code. We also take a look at Global Constants and how they can be used to hold values that can be accessed from multiple Scripts/Workflows/Documents etc..

Business Layer Training - Business Layer Utilities
This Business Layer training session looks at functions and utilities available in the finPOWER Connect Business Layer. Throughout the Business Layer there are a number of functions and methods that can be called from a Script to perform actions against various Business Layer objects. We will demonstrate where to find these functions and how to use them, as well as exploring the Business Layer Runtime library, which contains useful helper methods for handling dates, text, numbers, files etc..

Business Layer Training
The Intersoft Support Code Team will be creating weekly training content to help developers create Scripts using the finPOWER Connect Business Layer. Each week we will post a new blog article focused on an area of the Business Layer, along with a video demonstration and associated resources.
rPPSR Changes - Supporting the G2B
Amongst other challenges, finPOWER Connect needs to support the G2B interface until the new rPPSR goes live on the 2nd July 2018, and after this date to continue to support existing G2B Transactions stored in finPOWER Connect.
Some of our goals, therefore, included:
- It must be simple to switch to the new rPPSR on the go live date.
- Existing PPSR Transactions created via the existing G2B interface must still be supported.
rPPSR Changes - Introduction
The existing PPSR in New Zealand is being replaced with a new system, the rPPSR (Replacement PPSR), and is due to go live on 2nd July 2018.
This move is being driven by the Ministry of Business Innovation and Enterprise (MBIE) and is designed to replace the reliable but aging platform that, whilst world leading when it was released in 2002, has increased risks and costs associated with ageing technology.
Here, at Intersoft Systems, we have been working towards this change for the last 12 months, and are committed to developing a state of the art interface to the rPPSR.
In this first Blog article, we will introduce some of the changes made to the rPPSR.
Account and Client wizards in finPOWER Connect Cloud
Certain forms within finPOWER Connect Cloud are fixed, e.g., the Client Log form.
Others forms, however, are implemented as system-supplied HTML Widgets and can be substituted by custom HTML Widgets, thereby allowing an unprecedented level of customisation.
Three new forms are the Account Credit Limit Change, Account Monitor Category Change and Account Statement Change wizards.
Management Dashboard Reporting in finPOWER Connect Cloud
Management Reports are available to finPOWER Connect Cloud in the form of HTML Widgets and can be viewed in the form of interactive Dashboards.
Several of these reports are supplied with finPOWER Connect and these can be used as-is or as a starting point for creating your own, customised, reports.
Electronic and Digital Signature Technology
There is some confusion regarding the difference between electronic and digital signature technology with people thinking the two are the same thing. However, the two signature types are different and it is important to understand how, otherwise your business could be exposed to additional risks.
Here is a really good video that clearly explains the different between the two from one of key partners:
finPOWER Connect integrates with Secured Signing to provide a seamless process of getting important documents signed electronically.
For more information on the Electronic Signature Module for finPOWER Connect please see finPOWER Connect Electronic Signatures Add-On.
Movember - Lets do this!
It is that time of the year again. Brownie points have been cashed in, favours negotiated and permission granted! The Men of Intersoft are doing MOvember, much to the irritation of their partners and family members! This year it is even bigger than before with the Brisbane office laying down the challenge to the Napier office to see who can produce not only the best of follicle fashion, but also who can raise the most money for Men's health.
So far... and we are only a couple of days into the month … we have raised over $1,500 for this great cause.
We are sure that most of you will have been affected at some point by issues relating to Men’s physical and mental health. A donation will go on to help prevent these issues in the future. To make your donation, you can donate here to the MoPOWER Connect team or https://moteam.co/mopower-connect to see individual team members and their updates and progress.
Please support this great initiative, and thank you to those that have already donated.
