Introducing Qrimp Solution Accelerator Modules

Posted: 12/24/2007 7:41:00 PM
Modules are Solution Accelerators that allow you to add functionality to your Qrimp App or share functionality you have developed with others.
Modules are installable packages containing a data model (i.e. the Tables and Relationships) for your information, combined with the menus, views, templates and other objects needed to present the information and enable interaction with it.

We currently have modules for Messaging, Contact Management, Task and Project Management, Countries and more. We will be adding modules to the list. If you have an idea for a module you'd like, let us know in the Qrimp Developer Network.

Modules are Plug-n-Play. They integrate with your existing solutions and enhance the functionality of them. Modules allow you to piece together a custom solution for your particular business needs without bogging down your system with features and components you don't need. If you'd like to remove a module, simply delete the menu tab and the tables in it.

Installing Modules

To install additional modules into your Qrimp Application, you must be an administrator. You'll find the Add Module menu under the Admin tab. Click the Add Module menu and you'll be presented with a list of the currently available modules. Click the Add Module button by the module you want and it's added instantly! Begin using it right away. Modules are just like any other component of your Qrimp Application and you are free to customize them to suit your organization's needs. Change field names, redesign forms, create reports and modify security settings as you see fit.

Build Your Own Modules and Share them with the Community

Not only can you add modules to your system, but you can also create your own modules and share them with other Qrimp users. One of the available modules you'll see in the Modules list is the Module Builder. Add this module and you'll see the Build Module menu under the Admin tab. Select it and you'll be presented with a list of your tables and you can choose the ones you'd like to add to the module. When you build the module, you can save the resulting file and then upload it to the Qrimp Developer Network where we can add it to the list for others to install into their own systems.
