So SaaS clients got upgraded to the new version over the weekend… and I played around a little this morning.
When AutoUpdate ran, it took about the same amount of time any other full version upgrade ever has (about 8 minutes). The login splash screen looks pretty much the same, but has the new branding. Checkboxes for “Classic” (which brings up the V8/E9 baby blue menu) and “Home Page” (the Kinetic Home Page) are there, if you leave both unchecked the Modern Shell menu comes up.
Embedded Education (Demo environment) and System Help (both environments) are not yet fully functional (and sometimes this takes a bit anyway), and in EXTREMELY LIMITED TESTING the Modern Shell interface looks the same and acts the same as it does in 10.2.700. There is still the ribbon bar at the top saying that Kinetic screens are available, just click here! Some items open directly in the Kinetic screen, some in the Modern Shell screen. Launching Epicor in either of the three modes only appears to affect the main menu… if you launch in Classic mode and open the Order Tracker it comes up in Kinetic.
There is a customization on the Order Entry screen, and it appears to work properly (it’s just UD fields) in that I can put data in the box and it gets saved.
HOWEVER… when I open this environment in a browser, and open Order Entry, the customization is NOT run. No error message, no nothing… but no UD fields on the page… and that makes perfect sense TECHNICALLY but it would be nice if there were a message of some type.
That’s really all I’ve played with for now. Please jump in with your own experiences!
