Always the last to know?
Have you ever found yourself spending hours racking your brain trying to determine whether an issue you found in VISUAL is bug-related or simply a lack of knowledge of the module. Only to find out that INFOR has already acknowledged it as a “bug” and has already fixed it in a patch released months ago!
Finding this out is both relieving and frustrating. Relieved to know it’s not YOU, but frustrating to know that you wasted your time on an known issue which has been reported and fixed long ago.
So in order to keep on top of things, INFOR offers you to be notified by email when patches are released. And in these releases you’ll find not only the latest patches but a pdf detailing what was updated and fixed.
It’s easy to sign up:
- Log into InforXtreme Support site. You’ll need to be on maintenance, of course.
- Enter the Solution # of the patch release for the VISUAL application and version your interested in. Refer the Nuggets to refer to where I list the popular patches by solution #.
In this example I’m using Solution #955942 VISUAL 7 patch release.
- When the following window appears, click on the SIGN UP link located to the right of the solution (as shown).
- Now enter your email and click on the SIGN UP button.
And Bob’s your uncle (what does that mean anyway? and who’s Bob?)
