JobOrder’s Internet module is now shipping

JobOrder offers a comprehensive, cross-platform solution to integrate the
business operations of project-oriented service businesses such as software
developers, web design firms, advertising agencies, and consulting
companies. JobOrder facilitates planning, estimating, scheduling, billing,
accounting, analyzing and reporting.

Joborder’s Internet module combines dynamic HTML elements with a robust
internal programming language to enable JobOrder Server to publish itself
on the Internet. JobOrder Internet provides an interface that closely
resembles the normal JobOrder Client experience.

By using the JobOrder Internet API, users can customize their JobOrder
Internet web site. The JobOrder Internet API provides the language
necessary to communicate requests to the JobOrder Server, allowing users to
design their JobOrder Internet experience using any modern HTML editor,
such as Macromedia DreamWeaver, Adobe GoLive, or Microsoft FrontPage.

JobOrder Internet API commands become part of the hypertext links and form
actions of web pages. Like JobOrder’s Custom Forms feature, this API
provides the flexibility to customize JobOrder Internet – without having to
shut down the JobOrder Internet server.

and if not, falls back to its internal programming to provide the default
web page. This allows the greatest flexibility because it affords the user
the ability to customize all of their web site, some of their web site, or
none of their web site.

In addition, JobOrder Internet sets up a ‘realm’ folder for each of the
Security Access levels in the JobOrder data file being served. This enables
JobOrder Internet to further customize the web site for each Security
Access level in the data file, allowing the Database Administrator to
create a custom JobOrder Internet site for each Security Access level.

JobOrder Internet allows Clients and Vendors controlled access to JobOrder
databases, so that they can examine and update only specified areas and
fields. This access is controlled simply adding a Client or Vendor as a
Resource and assigning a strictly confined Security Access level for these
