We're enhancing your IC Online experience with updated terminology and names for a few things.  Thank you to all our customers who have given feedback on our terminology.  Because we serve such a wide range and depth of customers, we're doing this to make it easier for everyone to understand the IC Online terminology, and to bring it in line with common e-forms terminology.  Here is a list of upcoming changes:


"Items" being renamed "Assets"

     An Asset specifically refers to an individual piece of equipment stored in your database.  We think it's more clear what an Asset is than what an Item is.

"Operations" being renamed "Forms"

     Forms is more common terminology for filling in and recording data about an inspection, certification, or preventative maintenance on an asset.  If someone is doing an inspection, usually they are filling in Fields in an inspection form.  Many customers will find that "Completing a Form" is more familiar and appealing terminology than "Completing an Operation".


"Tasks" being renamed "Form Fields" (or just "Fields")

     Form Fields (or more simply Fields) are the empty spaces where you can record data in a Form.  Some people call them "Controls" when talking about electronic forms.  We used to call them Tasks.  Form Field Types include TextBoxes, CheckBoxes, DropDowns, DateTimePickers, etc..  When you are building your forms you can choose what Field Type is used for any specific Field so that you ensure the user is entering the correct type of data in the correct Field.

"Completed Operations" being renamed "Completed Work"

     "Completed Work" seems like a better, more easily understandable place to go to see your recorded work history.  The "Completed Work" section of IC Online will have a listing of all the "Completed Forms" that have been filled. 

"Operation Results" being renamed "Completed Forms"

     This one is easy.  If an Operation is now called a Form, then it follows that a Completed Operation is now called a "Completed Form".

"Perform an Operation" being renamed to "Complete a Form"

     Another easy one.  It seems to make more sense to "Complete a Form" than it does to "Perform an Operation".  We hope you agree!

We hope you like these changes.  Please feel free to tell us what you think, as we always welcome and value your feedback.  In fact, customer feedback from valued customers is exactly why we are making these changes!

IC Online Change Log for Build 5.1.43

posted Mar 16, 2012, 12:46 PM by Christian Loew

Version 5.1.43 Published Feb 09/2012

·         New: CompletedOps page - Added a button in that allows you to merge all the PDF certificates of the operations displayed in the gridview into a one PDF file

·         Enhancement: ItemSearchPage – When you open the dialog "Update Selected Items", fixed the problem of the location dropdown that de-selected itself. Replaced that dropdown with a dropdown tree view and improved the dialog behavior.

·         Change: Error page - Modified the ("Our apologies...") to be more human readable and added buttons to copy the error message and send it to InfoChip.

·         Enhancement : Periodic Insp/Cert Scheduling Page - (Edit/Create scheduled email), fixed the Owner dropdown list to avoid showing duplicates. Also improved Owner dropdown and location and category dropdown treeviews.

·         Enhancement : Item Search Page & Completed Ops Page - Modified the gridviews to have an "Item Desc" column with a min-width of 150px to avoid displaying very tall rows because of long item descriptions

·         Enhancement : Item Modify Page - When you add a new item it will assign a unique ChipID to the item if you don't add one manually.

·         Enhancement : Item Modify Page - When you edit an item, now you can remove all the ChipIDs (no more message box saying that you have to have at least one), and add a unique ChipID automatically when you save.

·         Enhancement : Employees Maintenance Page - Added a more accurate validation for UserName. If you enter characters that are not allowed you will be notified by an error message and the row won't be saved.

·         Enhancement : Periodic Insp/Cert Scheduling Page: A blank report page will now say “No Certification” or “No Inspections” instead of being blank.

posted Mar 16, 2012, 12:44 PM by Christian Loew

·         Change: Dashboard - Modified the style of the Dashboard to match the new jQuery IC_Online style

IC Online Change Log for Build 5.1.41

posted Mar 16, 2012, 12:43 PM by Christian Loew   [ updated Mar 16, 2012, 12:50 PM ]

  • Enhancement :Download Page - Added a page called "Downloads" under "Help" menu that shows the list of all the files for AD and IC Mobile that can be downloaded (including HH instructions). The page is visible only for FullBlown clients and ICFREE. IC_FREE clients are not allowed to download AD files.
  • Enhancement :Item Modify Page - Fixed dropdown width in Item edit/add page, and in all the filters for IE8. The dropdown should expand and allow you to see the full text when it's clicked on.
  • Enhancement :Dashboard/CompOps Page - Added a new filter filed to the "QuickSearch" section of the dashboard called "Cert Ref Num". Searching for a CertRefNum will open the OpResultsPage filtered by that field and value. Clients with the module CERT_REFNUM_SEARCH will see this field. Clients that also have the DCLINTEGRATION module will enter the value in their cutom format (Example: C1-12345-2-1) but the filter will search ignoring the last part after the last dash.
  • Enhancement :Dashboard/CompOps/UTI Summary page - Load the refNums and custRefNums on a separate async task executed after the page is loaded. For users with a big list of ref nums you can see that the dropdowns are initially empty, with just a "Loading..." text.
  • Change :New Item Page - Added functionality for LEAFNODECATSONLY module. When creating an item this module forces you to choose a leaf-node category (a Category that has no sub-categories).
  • Enhancement :OpResults Entry Page - Setting item status to SCRAPPED when InspectionInstruction is set to SCRAP in the OpResultsEntryPage. Reset the cache so that the gridview will reload and hide the scrapped item.
  • Enhancement :File Upload Control - Fixed the file upload in Chrome and Firefox, before it was always giving an "HTTP Error" when you tried to upload a file in any of the pages that have the file upload control.
