[/mk_title_box][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”false”]The design and function of Trak360 can be significantly tailored with our Control Panel. This allows configuration and customization data structure, entry screen layouts, menus, user profiles, dashboards, and more. No coding is needed, just with setting changes or drag and drop tools. With this, your administrator will have significant power to shape and adjust your Trak360 system as your needs grow and change.[/vc_column_text][mk_padding_divider size=”30″][/vc_column][/mk_page_section][vc_row fullwidth=”true”][vc_column][vc_separator color=”black” border_width=”2″][/vc_column][/vc_row][mk_page_section bg_stretch=”true” video_loop=”false” padding_top=”50″ padding_bottom=”70″ top_shape_color=”#ffffff” bottom_shape_color=”#ffffff” sidebar=”sidebar-1″][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1559654783698{margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-left: -100px !important;}”][mk_fancy_title color=”#000000″ size=”30″ font_family=”Montserrat” font_type=”google”]Control Panel Details[/mk_fancy_title][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”false”]Control Panel is an application with a number of functions, each of which focused on the administration or customization of a specific aspect of your Trak360 system. Below is a survey of the main functions. These functions are listed in the order that one might use them to add a completely new database entry page to their system.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text title=”Database Designer” disable_pattern=”false”]The database designer allows an administrator to add or modify certain database table and related DDL as well as run SQL queries. This powerful option, combined with the Menu and TIF managers, allows for the addition of entirely new database objects and data entry pages. This is just another key to the flexibility and scalability of Trak360. Without coding, an administrator can expand the data structure and operations of the system.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/mk_page_section][vc_row fullwidth=”true”][vc_column][vc_separator color=”black” border_width=”2″][/vc_column][/vc_row][mk_page_section attachment=”fixed” bg_position=”center top” speed_factor=”1.3″ video_loop=”false” video_opacity=”0.1″ padding_top=”40″ padding_bottom=”40″ top_shape_color=”#ffffff” bottom_shape_color=”#ffffff” sidebar=”sidebar-1″][vc_column][vc_column_text title=”TIF Designer” disable_pattern=”false”]The TIF (Table Information File) Designer is the original core design tool of our products and has evolved for over 20 years. Formerly a standalone product, TIF Studio, TIF Designer is now one of the many integrated components of Control Panel.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”false”]The TIF Designer allows you to generate and modify a display page for any database table. This tool gives you the power to not only modify the structure, look, and operation of any existing data entry table in Trak360, it also allows you to generate a page for any new table you may choose to add to your Trak360 system.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”false”]For example, a new database table could be added to your system using the Database Designer. Then, using TIF Designer, you could simply name your new page and click on Create TIF. The system automatically generates a default data entry page for your table.[/vc_column_text][mk_padding_divider][mk_image src=”” image_size=”full” align=”center”][mk_padding_divider][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”false”]The Arrange function of the TIF designer allows you to open any existing page in Trak360, or a page you just created, and arrange the layout of the data elements. If the table is more complex, you can have multiple tabs (or sub pages) and drag elements between the pages. All changes are made in real time and you can instantly see the results. Placement is simple with the built in snap to grid.[/vc_column_text][mk_padding_divider size=”25″][mk_image src=”” image_size=”full”][mk_padding_divider size=”30″][vc_column_text title=”Field Properties” disable_pattern=”false”]The Field Properties function of the TIF designer allows you to make detailed changes and data property, type, and action adjustments to any object on the page. For a typical data entry field, there are close to 100 different properties available to apply or adjust. Example properties are display length, entry required, drop down available, lookup, lower case allowed, color, HTML coding, and much more.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”false”]Other functionality of the TIF designer include adding tabs to a page to divide large tables into multiple, smaller, grouped entry pages. There is a feature to add custom action buttons a page to call custom functions, like print a report, call a stored procedure, or a host of other operations.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/mk_page_section][vc_row fullwidth=”true”][vc_column][vc_separator color=”black” border_width=”2″][/vc_column][/vc_row][mk_page_section video_loop=”false” padding_top=”0″ padding_bottom=”70″ top_shape_size=”small” top_shape_color=”#ffffff” bottom_shape_style=”speech-bottom” bottom_shape_size=”small” bottom_shape_color=”#e8e8e8″ sidebar=”sidebar-1″][vc_column width=”1/2″][mk_padding_divider size=”70″][mk_image src=”” image_size=”full”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text title=”Lookup Designer” disable_pattern=”false”]The Lookup Designer gives you the power to build relationships between tables and entry pages and pull data from one table to another. A simple example would be having a lookup on an order entry page to pull in customer and shipping address information by having a “lookup” to the customer table. Any text field in any table can have a lookup attached that will bring back one or many fields from any other table.[/vc_column_text][mk_padding_divider size=”20″][mk_image src=”” image_size=”full” lightbox=”true”][mk_padding_divider size=”15″][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”false”]New in Control Panel is the addition of dropdowns as a lookup type. This gives the ability to have short, quick drop down lists of static choices, instead of looking up to another table. For Example if you wanted to have predefined choices for Shift (First, Second, Third, Weekend) without having these choices come from another table, you could define this as a dropdown list.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/mk_page_section][vc_row fullwidth=”true”][vc_column][vc_separator color=”black” border_width=”2″][/vc_column][/vc_row][mk_page_section attachment=”fixed” bg_position=”center top” bg_repeat=”repeat-y” speed_factor=”1.3″ video_loop=”false” video_opacity=”0.1″ padding_top=”40″ padding_bottom=”40″ top_shape_style=”speech-top” top_shape_size=”small” top_shape_color=”#e8e8e8″ bottom_shape_color=”#ffffff” sidebar=”sidebar-1″][vc_column][vc_column_text title=”Language Designer” disable_pattern=”false”]All new for Control Panel is multi-language support, and the ability to generate profiles for over 50 different languages! With the Language Designer, you can create as many language and region profiles as you wish. Users can then be defaulted to a specific profile, so when they login to Trak360 they see that language. The Language Designer has three primary components: Language/Region profile, Language generation, and Language Editing.

The Language Profile is the base definition for the Language and region setting you want to add or modify. This profile is based on the CLDR (Unicode Common Locale Data Repository) standards for all countries. Trak360 ships with a standard profile for English, French, and Spanish. You may modify these profiles, or add any new profile you choose. The region setting effect how various data types (like currency, dates, times) display system wide for each specific user.[/vc_column_text][mk_padding_divider][mk_image src=”” image_size=”full” align=”center”][mk_padding_divider][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”false”]Language generation utilizes the Google Translation service to generate a profile for any new language you choose, and that Google supports. This generator will create new text for every data field, every button, every menu… virtually everything in the system.

The Language Editor allows you to override the translation for any word or phrase in a profile. This allows you to tweak a profile to use wording more appropriate to a sub-region, or to enter translations for any phrases that can not auto-generate.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/mk_page_section][vc_row fullwidth=”true”][vc_column][vc_separator color=”black” border_width=”2″][/vc_column][/vc_row][mk_page_section][vc_column][vc_column_text title=”Media Manager” disable_pattern=”false”]The Media Manager allows for the uploading and management of media items like images or videos. From this media repository, media can be embedded in pages or tied to specific data elements.[/vc_column_text][mk_padding_divider][vc_column_text title=”Menu Manager” disable_pattern=”false”]The Menu Manager allows the addition of new, or modification of existing menus in Trak360, or to any outward facing web portals you have created. The menus can point to system additions, custom coded pages, external sources, etc. All menus are tied to security profiles allowing user or group specific access or rights to each menu.[/vc_column_text][mk_padding_divider][vc_column_text title=”Security Manager” disable_pattern=”false”]Using the Security Manager, an administrator can add or modify user profiles, add or modify users, and control very detailed rights and access for each. Security manager can assign specific rights at a menu level for any user or group. This gives the ability for menus (in Trak360 or a web portal) to only appear for some users and groups, and not others or to be limited to read-only for some users while other may insert or edit data. Security manager can also allow an administrator to control which users have access to what products or sites.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/mk_page_section]
