Quality of Life Improvements and Optimized Stability with eggheads Suite 11.2

The on-going corona pandemic has posed a great many challenges in our development of eggheads Suite 11.2. Our entire development team is currently doing home office, from Germany to Brazil, so that the whole version has been developed remotely. Despite these challenges, more than 25 functions have found their way into the version and up to 70 bugs have been fixed. For this reason, we’re all the more pleased to present to you the highlights of the new eggheads Suite 11.2.

Newer, better, and more stable than ever: eggheads Suite 11.2 comes with many features

As per usual, the first release of the year is a “Long-Term Stable” version (LTS). What makes this version special is the prolonged support period – that’s what we stand for with our name. This is also why the focus of this version is stabilization and optimization of existing functions. In the upcoming quarter, we’ll commit ourselves to further improvements of existing functions so that we can continue to be your reliable partner for digital collaboration and Product Information processes.

Here are some highlights we want to present to you in more detail:
• Comprehensive improvements of our Web Client
• New features for the integrative translation process
• New import states for updating structure nodes

An exhaustive overview of all features and bugfixes can, as always, be found in the English Release Notes.

Innovations in Web Client

More usability and efficiency: Open the curtains for a newly optimized Web Client and features which make managing product data even more convenient. For example, you can now create and link structure nodes in Web Client. This allows end users to set up export trees or assortments for catalogs with linked products or articles.

Linking Structure Nodes in Web Client (eggheads Suite Version 11.2)

The new References view tells you at first glance if and where a structure node is linked or referenced by other objects for various use cases. You can now directly generate datasheets or product pages at the click of a few buttons in Web Client and also add them to a media attribute of the product as necessary.

Also, the new number range attributes can now also be edited and validated in Web Client.

Expanding Translation Options

Media assets are an integral part of products. Which is why we’ve further improved the process of technical writing of formatted text and segment-based translation. Now, you can also automatically add all relevant media and their attribute content to translation tasks. In turn, this translates into higher efficiency in your data management.

More Highlight Functions

For imports which update structure nodes, you can now identify “skipped” objects in the import protocol. Another goodie for template designers: Our Expression Language now provides you with more expressions for making use of hierarchical enumeration attributes. When testing out complex expressions, make sure to also use the new quality-of-life feature for only evaluating selected parts of the expression.
