This product was developed with both business users and IT departments in mind. A wizard driven interface makes it easy for business users to become productive. IT departments like the fact that XLhub enables valuable enterprise data to be stored in a standards compliant SQL Server database and protected with Active Directory.
The newly released features include several reports, security functionality and the ability to work with protected worksheets.
The reporting features enable users to view data that originated in different files. Criteria can be applied in order to show specific snapshots of the data and to also show only the most recent snapshot from each file. Additionally an “audit trail” report is available that shows the change history of the data in each file.
For multi-user applications built with XLhub, new security features have been added to set permissions on subsets of the data. With this feature some users can be given permission to view all the data, while others can be restricted only to specific subsets of the data.
Password protected sheets are now supported with XLhub. This feature will allow users to lock certain cells so that data cannot be changed, while keeping other cells unlocked.
