Improvements in the Day-to Day Experience


Bridgman, Michigan, April 9, 2019 – B&L Information Systems has issued Odyssey 6.1 Maintenance Release 3 for general availability. Primarily a stability and performance update, Odyssey 6.1MR3 includes several small enhancements to improve the day-to-day experience of Odyssey users. 

  • When running Odyssey on an iPad, the ability to sort on column headers has been added.
  • The length of passwords within System Configuration has been increased to support systems that auto-generate very long passwords. 
  • Hovering the mouse over the grid cell will display a tooltip of the entire text for data grids that have multiple lines of information that do not show the entire text.
  • Within the Heat Planner, multiple shop orders can be highlighted at one time for removal from the plan.

“Maintenance releases for Odyssey are being released approximately every two months. The focus of the programming content of each MR is continual stability and performance improvements, but this new, standardized release cycle also allows us to deliver user enhancements in a timely manner. Odyssey 6.1 MR3 is the third of four scheduled Odyssey 6.1 maintenance releases,” states Brad Clark, Manager – Research & Development. “Odyssey 6.2 is going to be a major release featuring business application enhancements centered around scheduling, plus new and exciting User Interface features. That will be coming out in late summer or early fall of 2019.”

All Odyssey 6.1 release information is available through Rapid Support within Odyssey Web UI or via the B&L customer portal (Customer Login) for customers on Windows UI. Any assistance needed in the update process is free for any customers on maintenance with B&L. Odyssey customers on the B&L Cloud will be contacted by B&L's Technology Department with the update schedule.
