TARGIT 2021, build 21222. Released June 14th June 2021.
This version includes a range new features and general improvements.
You can now add Web boxes to your TARGIT Dashboards.
The Web box object can display any kind of web based content - e.g. Instruction videos, Help pages, Browser based business systems, etc. that are otherwise administrated outside the TARGIT environment.
Basically you can integrate anything that can be reached with a URL. Furthermore, you are able pass on parameters - e.g., a Customer name from a Customer dimension - to the web based resource.

Page criteria in reports
Page Criteria means that you can apply criteria to a whole page in a report.
This will enable you to create a multi page report - possibly from various data sources - and easily apply the necessary criteria to each individual page.

TARGIT Notification agents can now use Webhook in addition to the traditional notification email.
A Webhook is a standard that offers pushing a notification to a service that supports incoming webhooks.
In the receiving application, an incoming webhook will result an action being taken.
The Webhook can be used to initiate an instant workflow process by use of Workflow Automation tools such as Zapier, Power Automate, IFTTT etc.
This means that TARGIT can support different workflows in your organization - the limit here is actually your own imagination.

Notification email with link to Anywhere client
When you set up a scheduled job to distribute information in the shape of a PDF, snapshot, Excel, CSV or XML you have so far been able to automatically add a link to the mail that went out. That link could only be used if you had a windows client installed.
With this release you can still choose this option - but we have also added the option to add a link that will open the related document in the Anywhere client.

TARGIT Information Collector (TIC)
The TARGIT Information Collector is a tool to ensure the best possible service when getting in touch with TARGIT Support.
When you create a new ticket with TARGIT Support, the TARGIT Information Collector will help providing all the trivial information about your system - such as TARGIT version number, Operating System info etc.

Separate TARGIT client upgrades
Until this release, when upgrading a TARGIT implementation to a newer version, the upgrade would involve upgrading the full TARGIT Decision Suite - i.e. the TARGIT Server and the TARGIT Client at the same time. The TARGIT Server and the TARGIT Client needed to be kept in sync.
From this release, it will become possible to upgrade the TARGIT Client independently of the TARGIT Server, which in general will lower the risks involved with a TARGIT upgrade.

Default Identity Provider for Anywhere login
When you work with setting up identity providers using the open id connect integration in TARGIT, your users will be met with several options to login to TARGIT.
They will see your Open-ID configured login as an option and also the built-in TARGIT login prompt will appear.
With the TARGIT 2021 Summer Release, you can set up a default identity provider, which will make sure that the users only see the relevant login prompt.

Disable logging to logins.xml
When running on a public solution each login is handled anonymously and a new user (guid) is created. This means that the logins.xml file get's very big (>10 MB), which causes reads and writes to become very slow. To handle this, we added a setting in Settings.xml such that you can disable writing to Logins.xml on these solutions.
