K2 have decided to discontinue K2 Blackpoint from the release of Blackpearl 4.6.5. Most people noticed this when the latest release (4.6.5) for Blackpearl, and tried to get the latest for Blackpoint but found no release.
If you are a Blackpoint client then not all is lost as K2 are offering a free upgrade to Blackpearl. To get this free upgrade, go to http://portal.k2.com, download the latest version of Blackpearl, upgrade your current instance of point and follow the prompts to request a K2 pearl licence as per usual.
Once upgraded to pearl, users will also be able to purchase and use k2 SmartForms as well as all the other features that pearl has that are not present in point.
So it’s been a while since I have posted anything, and I have lots of excuses but in the end, I was a bit lazy. So to make it up, I have decided to build a case management solution using K2 Blackpearl and Smartforms and embed them in an ASP.Net website. I want to show how easy it is to build something like this with these products, so I will try to document the process here.
Here is a quick break down of how I plan to use each product:
- New user request
- Case routing
- SmartBox for data storage
- Request access form
- New case form
- case interaction form
- hosting Website (using forms auth integrated with the New user request)
I can’t promise the most prettiest looking of solutions, I am a developer not a designer after but the functionality will be there and will show case these three products.
