Plugins can be used to provide data from any Intrexx application, such as important sales data from various applications, or bundled appointments from various calendars.
Plugins are defined via the Properties dialog box of the application node or the Properties dialog box of a data group.
To define multiple plugins for different data groups, select the Plugins tab of the application’s Properties dialog box. There you will see an overview of all plugins defined in the application.
If you want to define a plugin for a single data group, go to the Plugins tab of the Properties dialog box for the corresponding data group. An overview of plugins defined for that data group is shown there.
Creating a plugin works the same in both dialog boxes. The only difference between the two is that when creating a plugin via the application in the first dialog box,
the desired data group needs to be selected. When creating a plugin through the data group, the data group is already selected and cannot be changed.
One of the most important characteristics of Intrexx Share is the seamless integration
of any application. Intrexx Share plugins can be defined in the Intrexx applications
via the properties of the data groups. Users with sufficient permissions can subscribe
to the defined plugins in Intrexx Share in the form of apps. A plugin can be defined in every Intrexx application, and every Intrexx Share user
with the appropriate access rights to the application can subscribe to the plugin. A plugin consists essentially of two parts:
Post display page (Desktop or mobile)
This page displays the post in Intrexx Share. Here you have the option to display all of the required information.
Edit page (Desktop or mobile)
If a plugin has been subscribed to, or made available as a predefined plugin, in the Apps tab of the
input area of Intrexx Share you can find the input page (configured in the plugin) of the corresponding
applications. Frequently used functionality, e.g. holiday requests, callbacks, activities, can thus be
used very conveniently, directly in Intrexx Share.
On the Plugins tab in the properties of data groups, the plugins required for Intrexx Share can be defined.
All entries and records in data groups, for which plugins have been configured, will be displayed in Intrexx Share.
Click on Create new plugin, to configure a new plugin.
The calendar plugin allows all kinds of appointments from any Intrexx application, such as from reservations, events, or absences, to be displayed together in a calendar control.
Existing calendar plugins can be deleted with Delete selected calendar plugin, as
long as they do not stem from other applications. Click Edit selected calendar plugin
to open the configuration dialog box for the plugin. Duplicate selected calendar plugin creates a copy of the selected plugin.
Click Create new calendar plugin to define a new calendar plugin.
The Pinboard plugin gives you the ability to show the newest changes to records in an application on a portal page in the Pinboard portlet.
For example, you can enable the Pinboard to quickly see changes by portal users to reservations on your company vehicles or to customer data.
All changes to correspondingly configured data groups flow togeter in the Pinboard plugin. The entries may come from various applications.
Click Create new pinboard configuration to define a new plugin.
Only one pinboard configuration can be created per data group.
