ProwessIQ version 1.5

by Shiuli Mishra

An upgraded executable of ProwessIQ is released today, 22 December 2016. The build date of this ProwessIQ executable is 21 December 2016.

This upgraded exe of ProwessIQ is freely downloadable and is available at http://prowessiq.cmie.com. The new .exe incorporates new features, enhancements and bug fixes in the user-interface. To understand the changes incorporated in the new .exe, we recommend you read this note carefully.

The changes/bugs incorporated/rectified in the application which are .exe dependent are:

    We introduced the following new features in the ‘Commands History and Planner’, for the ease of viewing, editing and executing commands.

    • Reordering: In ‘Commands History and Planner’, a facility of reordering of commands in the planner list is introduced. When you select a single command from the ‘List of commands’, you can re-order the command as per your requirement using the arrows available in the bottom left of the screen. You just need to highlight command and re-order the same using the arrow buttons.

    • Insert: You can insert a new command in the planner list of ‘Commands History and Planner’ by using the key ‘INSERT’. You can either write new commands for execution, or tweak an existing command by double clicking on the command, as per your requirement. The query command limit is 20,000 characters. Alternatively, a new command can also be inserted in the planner list using ‘Insert’ button available in the menu bar.

    • Copy: Now you can copy the commands of the planner list in ‘Commands History & Planner’ using ‘CTRL+C’. Commands can also be copied using ‘Copy’ button available in the menu bar.

  • Network connection: Any network connection problem occurring during any upload or download of data content in ProwessIQ, the user will be notified via a pop-up message on the screen. The pop-up message will also describe the details of the error/issue.

  • Crash: There are query triggers where we can paste content such as names of companies, names of directors, major investor names and so on and so forth. Hitherto, ProwessIQ application used to crash when content copied in a query trigger would exceed the set buffer limit in those query trigger. The issue was occurring in eight query triggers in ProwessIQ mentioned below for your reference. This issue has now been resolved.

    1. Select Company by Name
    2. Name of Director/Manager
    3. Equity Holding of Promoter & Major Investor
    4. Committee Name & Designation
    5. Bankers, Auditors & Registrars
    6. Subsidiaries
    7. Schedule of Investment
    8. Products & Raw materials (Query on Name)

    The changes/bugs incorporated/rectified in the application which are .exe independant:

  • In the Related Party Transactions Query Trigger, following changes have been made:

    • New Party Types added: New party types have been added in this Query Trigger. Hitherto, there were eight party types - All party types, Holding company, Subsidiary, Parties where control exist, Key Personnel, Relatives of Key Personnel, Others, All excluding Key Personnel & Relatives. Now, we have other party types such as - Ultimate Holding company, Intermediate Holding company, Fellow Subsidiary Company, Associate, Joint venture, Enterprises over which KMP have control/SI, Individual having significant interest/influence over company, Promoters, Shareholders.

    • Placement in WS: In the Worksheet, earlier the party names per transactions used to appear alphabetically. However, we have changed the placement of the Party Names ‘All Others’, ‘All Subsidiaries’, ‘All Holding Companies’ to appear at the bottom of the list i.e after the ‘Individual Party Names’. This is because they show the total of transaction values under a Party Type.

  • Select all option: On right clicking, ‘Select All’ option has been enabled for making selections at once in the following Query Triggers.

    1. Committee Name & Designation : In the box ‘Select Director Designation in Committee’

    2. Board Meetings

    3. Energy Consumption

    4. Product-wise Energy Consumption

    5. Additions & Updations

  • In the ‘Additions & Updations’ Query Trigger, the outputs were appearing differently for Output sheet and Worksheet (with time in rows and companies & indicators in columns). For a same query criteria, the content in the Output sheet and Worksheet was inconsistent. The output has now been made consistent across all the Output destinations available in that Query Trigger.
