Planned End of support for Internet Explorer 11
On March 11, 2019, Prophix announced it will remove support for Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) effective December 31, 2019.
If you are currently using IE 11, we recommend switching to Edge or another modern browser such as Google Chrome. Microsoft Edge is the best choice if a Microsoft browser must be used at your organization.
After the End of Support date, functionality in Prophix may not work in IE11, and no minor bugs or cosmetic issues will be fixed for IE11.
Why is Prophix removing support for IE11?
Prophix strives to deliver products that meet our customers’ needs. The increasing gap between IE11 and all other browsers has meant that we must expend considerable effort to avoid and fix defects that only appear in IE11. It limits our technology choices and ability to deliver the reliability and functionality our customers expect.
The newest features in Prophix are as follows.
Ad Hoc Analysis
You can now "drill through" to a detailed planning cube from a data view or template.
- Create and manage the Announcements that appear to users in their dashboard.
- Using the Object History feature, administrators can now track the changes made to users, roles, and groups in Security Manager.
- In chart tiles, the series limit has been increased from 12 to 26 for column, bar, line, and combo charts (for pie and funnel charts the limit remains at seven).
- Dashboard charts animation has been removed.
- The color palettes for charts have been revised and the number of colors in a palette has been increased from 9 to 12.
- Previously, all administrators and advanced users could see source data in certain previews. An additional layer of data security has been added to the Preview option to restrict access to source data.
Detailed Planning Manager
- You can now duplicate an existing scenario in order to re-use its resources and some or all of its features, including actions and attribute values.
Detailed Planning Schedules
- Schedules now support the Windows Clipboard. When you Copy data inside an external application such as Excel, you can Paste the data into a schedule.
- Your preferred settings, such as list view/tile view, sort direction, and column selection, are now automatically saved between sessions.
Drill Across Designer
- Drill Across Designer has a new, improved user interface.
- The Export Dimension process can be used to extract a dimension and save it to a file or database.
Prophix for Office 365
- Prophix for Office 365 Excel is now available. To learn more, contact your Prophix Customer Account Manager.
- You can now add multiples files at once to a report binder.
- You can now add charts to your templates.
- Designers can set the default for Auto Refresh for a data-entry template.
