2571136 - Filter Option for Columns not Available in HTML5

Symptom

Left click on a column header does not give the option to filter values.

Environment

ByD HTML5 layout

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log into ByD using the HTML5 layout.
  2. Go to a view containing values in a column e.g. Supplier Invoicing and then Invoices and Credit Memo.
  3. Left click on Document ID.

Cause

Object Work List - Enhanced Mode has been delivered and enabled with the 1711 release. In order to achieve feature parity between the HTML5 and Silverlight client Filter Bar was implemented. As this feature is not compatible with the classic column filter the latter has been disabled. See also video attached demonstrating the behaviour in 1708 and 1711 release.

Resolution

You can scope Object Work List - Classic Mode to go back to the old view. Note that it will disable all the additional functionalities listed in Object Work List - Enhanced Mode.
