What's Your Favorite Trigger Action in WebNative Venture

I just got back from a road trip to a new client site. Training is getting so much more
involved as the programs have more and more built in functionality. Xinet always 
seems to have multiple ways to accomplish whatever your task might be. The jump
to Suite 16 is big, and aside from the newer version of MySQL ( It's version 5 now )
and all that new power, we now have a combined web GUI for FullPress, 
WebNative and Venture.

We're expanding training classes to include several more exercises within each 
application for a more 'hands-on' experience during training. It's true of learning any
new skill, the more you can touch it, the easier it will be to remember later on in
real world situations. We're creating challenges that have more than one way to resolve
and the trainees can use any means available to them to complete the assignment.

I'm finding that there are favorites as far as Trigger Actions. Mine use to be the
'setdatafield' Action. As of last week my new favorite Action is the
'inherit-parent-metadata'
Xinet has a sample of it on their web site and it's proving to be very cool. So I'd like to
do a very unscientific mini survey. You can answer here with comments or email
me directly.
What is your most used Trigger Action in Venture. And...
is there something you "want" in an Action.
Please let me know.

Portal v3 - Markups and Annotations on your assets

Now that version 3 of Portal is out, the markup and annotations feature is available to those that upgrade.  Now, that doesn't mean go out and install it immediately people!  Always make sure to contact NAPC first before any upgrades and ya know what, we're here to install it for you any way!  So, back to my point.

Portal 3, annotations & markups, yeah that's right!.  It's a very cool feature that deserves it's own min-blog.

Let's make this easy . . . the notes below come directly from Xinet's release notes of Portal v3:

"WebNative Portal 3.0, in conjunction with WebNative 16.0, allows on-line annotations of all images, documents, and videos. A palette allows users to add text, boxes, stamps, or sketches, and all of the annotations can be done in black or a range of colors. When adding annotations, the preview can be magnified for closer inspection. Individual annotations may be saved (with or without comments), deleted, or temporarily hidden from view. The annotations are stored in the Venture database, so any other WebNative user may access saved annotations via mview in Portal but the annotations are not saved to the file on the file system."

If you'd like to see a demo of this, please contact your Account Manager so we can arrange a quick demo.  Just another reason to get Portal or upgrade to the latest version!
