The PowerBuilder application was created in order to place the technically challenging and sometimes tedious task of Power Views customization in the hands of those who may otherwise never attempt their hand at development. The idea is simple; provide an easy to use interface at a reasonable price.

The PowerBuilder utility allows the uninitiated to complete a fully operational Power View for *Time Matters (versions 8,9 and 10) within minutes without having to learn HTML or cascading style sheets. For those that are more technically savvy, it becomes a tool that saves you editing time (and we all know that time is money).

PowerBuilder is as dynamic as it is easy to use. We have utilized a What You See is What You Get (WYSIWYG) interface that allows you to see the end product while you are designing. Simply choose the record type and layout options from the left side of the interface and begin creating your Power View. You can even determine which options appear in the upper left of the design by activating the provided check boxes:

PowerBuilder uses default templates that can be customized to include the most used record types including user defined records. You simply select the data point that you would like to include and provide its placement on the page and you are on your way to a fully customized Power View:

PowerBuilder is as expandable as it is easy to use in that it can import upcoming templates and features through our FunctionPak (coming soon) solution. As your needs change you can purchase the FunctionPak that suits your particular needs. These are an affordable way to create the PowerBuilder that meets your particular needs while keeping the initial cost down.
The application allows for a custom graphic to be added. The top and bottom areas are reserved for this function and can be used to place your company information, logo or both. This is an example of a completed Power View:

Although the default Power Views that accompany Time Matters are a fantastic way to view your data quickly at a glance, they can be difficult to customize.  PowerBuilder includes the following feature rich functionality:
  • User defined logo areas at the top and bottom areas of the output Power Views
  • Ability to import FunctionPaks to increase the potential of the utility based on your needs
  • Allows for use of multiple list layouts on a single view
  • Collapsible list areas
  • Adjustable list layout returns for last 5, 10, 20 or all records

Your finished product is compiled and stored locally for your preview. The output can be delivered through email or file transfer and PowerBuilder projects can be stored for later editing.
