exMon DM 2.6 - Release Notes

Release notes for exMon DM Release 2.6

Created by: Kristinn Magnusson

Our March 2020 DM 2.6 update includes a lot of improvements and features. If you would like to upgrade to the newest release contact us here

PowerBI View

Visualize changes to a table live inside the exMon DM Web interface by embedding your PowerBI online dashboard inside the DM interface. Filtering on the dashboard will filter your Table so you don't have to find the row that you need to update.


For more information visit Create PowerBI Embedded View

Set a default value for columns

Assign a default value to new rows by defining a default value for a column. The value can be modified by the user or be read-only.

Access Filter

The user access filter is now more powerful and allows you to define row-level access with SQL statements. The statement could, for example, select security from a SQL table or with a SQL function.

For more detailed information visit User Setting Permissions and User Access Filter

Disable User Access and Reset Password

You will now be able to better control access to your exMon service by disabling access and resetting the user's password.

  • When a user is disabled they will not able to log into exMon DM, but the user's records and audit history remain unaffected.
  • Resetting a user's password will then require them to request a new password next time they log in. You can utilise these features when you think the password has been compromised or when an employee leaves your organisation.

Search Display Value in Web [Beta]

Now the search on the web will also search the display value of lookup Columns.

Compact view on the Web [Beta]

Enjoy a more compact Web view with a small row height and width.
