GoldMine Premium Edition 8.5 will soon be released in a couple of weeks time.  The themes for this major release are empowering users with information, completing the customer view, boosting user productivity, and as with all GoldMine product releases, improving administrative capabilities and overall performance of the GoldMine application. 

 

GMPE 8.5 empowers users with information and improves user productivity with feature improvements and product additions that include:

 

  • Universal Search: provides an easy searching mechanism into GoldMine data. With Universal Search users may quickly search for information stored in activities, emails, linked documents, notes, knowledge management, as well as other GoldMine modules.
  • Preview Panes: enables a quick view into activities, emails, details and linked documents via these contact record tabs.
  • Case Management: this module has been improved with capabilities that allow additional column headers to be exposed in the case list view, and enabling single case to be linked to multiple contacts.  Also, history records are created for reassigned, escalated, abandoned and resolved cases, and email messages sent when viewing a case are automatically linked to that case.
  • Opportunity & Project Manager: these user interfaces have been redesigned for better usability by adopting the contact manager UI capabilities introduced in GMPE 8.0.
  • Email

  • Activity Management: new pending RSVP folder is available in the Activity List, individual activities can be printed or copied to other applications, and the Task folder exposes the opportunity or project name so users can navigate directly to the record.
  • Details Information: four additional fields have been added to the 'Details Tab'.

GMPE 8.5 is more easily administered with new product enhancements such as:

 

  • Silent installation / Unattended install: GoldMine administrators can enable an unattended installation of GoldMine so users don’t have to intervene, thus helping free up administration time.

  • Security and Permission Rights: additional end user security rights and system settings for additional permissions around notes, toolbar and search functions.
  • Linked Document Mover: enhances the ability to restrict locations from which documents can be moved during server migrations or Vista migrations.
  • Synchronisation: overall performance has been improved, the 2GB size limit is removed and current GoldSync connections are queued.
  • Compatibility Updates: GMPE 8.5 supports Microsoft SQL Server 2008, 32-bit & 64-bit versions of Windows Server 2008 and the 64-bit version of Windows Server 2003.
