The suite allows the complete computerization of HR processes, starting from recruiting to off-boarding.
The intuitive interface, the dual mode of supply (on premises and in remote connection), the possibility of importing data contained in other files and databases, the complete historicization of personnel data and the speed of implementation are just some of the characteristics of this simple and complete management.
The main resources toolbar provides basic functionality:
creates a new resource.
deletes the resource selected with all the connected data.
duplicates the selected resource (only the master data elements).
opens the selected resource and displays all the inserted master data.
We find numerous fields and windows available for entering specific resource data; similar to other documents, some windows are shared with the customers’ master data and therefore the in-depth analysis are referred to in the relevant sections.
We find 3 buttons to manage the window:
Exit: closes the selected tab.

Designed for the need to manage existing documents on external files, created by using the various existing programs on the Microsoft Windows® platform, connected directly to the currently selected resource.
allows the creation of a new document, after selecting the type from the 3 proposed in the combo-box list aside: “Document” for Microsoft Word®, “Excel Sheet” for the Microsoft Excel®, “Drawing” for Autodesk Autocad®.
The type of document created is copied from an existing template (Model.doc, Model.xls, Model.dwg), which can be customized with your own company logos and formatting. The templates are all saved in the following server folder: \ArproW\Condivisa\Documents.
By selecting “Image” in the combo-box (instead of the document type), the program disables the button for creation.
By pressing the botton on the window toolbar, the program opens a window from where you select an external file in bitmap format (Bmp).
Once the file has been selected, as in the previous case of creating a document from an existing model, the program inserts a link in the grid above with all the necessary data.
Each record of the grid has a reference to the type of document (Doc. Type), a network drive (…), a complete path to the identification (Filename), an entry date (Date) and an automatically generated protocol number (Protocol). The remaining fields can be filled freely with data, even for identification: Notes (20 alphanumeric characters), Ref. 1 (numeric field), Ref. 2 (10 alphanumeric characters), etc.
Last operative choice but not least, is the possibility to select external files without format limits. Selecting the “Other …” mode in the combobox, as for the previous modes, the program activates the button with the open folder image .
This last choice is the most used to connect external files to the document management system (CRM), it represents the default.
deletes the link of the selected document, without removing the physical file on the disk.
The only condition that also allows the physical deletion of the external file, is if the latter was created by duplicating a model and it has been saved in the default folder mentioned above.
If active, by pressing the cancel or print button in the toolbar, the program operates on all the records visible in the grid (not only in the one currently selected).
sends the selected document to the printer, without opening it. It works only for Microsoft® Word® documents.
Models: opens a management window dedicated to saving standard models, which can then be used in various contexts.
works only for Microsoft® Word® documents, activates the auto-compilation of the saved “Bookmarks” inside the specific document. The name of these “Bookmarks” must correspond to the name of the @/Arpro database fields, from which it automatically retrieves the data.
Organizing the various documents in standard templates available to the authorized network users of your company, is extremely time-saving and simplified by using this “Bookmarks” technology.
For more details, refer to the relative manual of the Microsoft Word® program (www.microsoft.com), regarding the “Bookmarks” management. For specific advice to define the whole context, contact our sales departments.
by double-clicking on the selected record or by pressing this button, the linked document will be opened. The system solves the problem of where the file is stored, if there are privileges from the operating system, and the file is opened by directly calling the creation program.
Any file format recognized by the Microsoft® Window® platform is opened, if the CRM module is correctly configured.
is a search filter, where you can select the various typologies Add-On from the list, and consequently the program displays all the documents that have associated that type.
Only during the insertion phase of a new document, if a type has been previously selected, the program associates it in the document as a search criterion.
Please consult the basic manual @/Arpro, regarding the specific management (from the program @/Arpro, in the main menu select “Master Data” + “Other” + “Typologies Add-On”).
defines the network unit that will be used, if different from the default one, when creating/inserting a new document in the CRM.
In the grid, the network unit associated with the document is displayed in the “…” column.
opens a configuration file with a defined record layout, which configures the CRM system to be able to open the various linked documents, in the different formats provided and recognized by the Microsoft Windows® platform.
The configuration file is saved on the local computer, in the \ArproW\ Altro\Arpro-crm.ini folder, considering that every PC on the network can have different configurations.
It is mandatory to respect the syntax of the file, which provides for each inserted record, then the recognized file format, a string with the file extension, a separation string consisting of the characters “–”, a complete path to open the corresponding program.
For any changes made, press the “Save” button on the toolbar at the bottom of the configuration window.
