Custom fields and Data Tags have been a very popular feature for contacts in Javelin with good reason. By adding your own custom fields you can adapt Javelin to better suit your business. Now the same feature is available to Opportunities and Cases.
As a simple example to demonstrate the power of this feature, let’s say I’d like to use Javelin to keep track of my client projects. First I configure a new Data Tag called Web Project and add fields for start date, planned end date and planned budget.
Now when I apply the Web Project tag to a case, Javelin prompts me to enter the new information and when I’m looking at the case in Javelin I can see the Web Project information I’ve entered alongside other case information.
Finally, it’s easy to use the new fields to add conditions to lists that are created in Javelin. For example, I can create a lists of projects due in due by February adding the following condition:
Hopefully this demonstrates the power of the custom fields and Data Tag functionality and has given you some ideas for your own. If you’ve got an interesting use of this functionality that you’d like to share with the Javelin community then we’d love to hear about it.
We’ve been introducing rounded corners into the Javelin user interface recently. Rounded corners and curves are nice and they provide us with a simple way to keep Javelin looking fresh, or at least it should have been simple. As any web designer will tell you in words I can’t print here, Internet Explorer is a party pooper.
We’ve looked into using the many hacks for round corners in Internet Explorer and we tried a couple but they all have their issues which leads us to this position:
So instead of spending our days making Internet Explorer fit a round hole we’ve left it square. In Firefox, Safari and Chrome you’ll get some rounded corner love:
And in Internet Explorer you’ll see square:
And another example:
I’m not on a crusade to change your web browser. The beauty of web applications is you get to choose your operating system and browser, but if you are using Internet Explorer and want to consider an alternative then Mashable did a browser round up recently.
We'd love to hear from you firstname.lastname@example.org
