Product Hub 


The Product Hub is a brand new module allowing users to access and view Sunrise activity in the context of an overall sold product. Product records can be created in Sunrise, or generated through integration to a 3rd party ERP or PLM solution. 

Once created, product records can be directly linked to Sunrise activity workflows, providing the following benefits:

  • Sunrise activity can be automatically populated with information from the product, such as the Product Code or Barcode. Reducing the need for manual data entry.
  • Assets added under the Sunrise activity are made available directly under the product. 
  • A complete history of activity and artwork development throughout a product's entire lifecycle is available from a single location.

From the Product Hub, users are able to search for products using their name, description, barcode or finished goods/product code. Using the handy views, it is also possible to quickly view products which have been created this month, or for the entire year. 

Visual Bill Of Materials - Phase 1


When a Product record is accessed from the new hub, the user is presented will a Bill Of Materials (BOM) view which shows interrelated sub-products, activities and associated assets. The current status of each asset and activity is clearly displayed. 

Over the next few releases this functionality will be further expanded to allow improved navigation, related approvals and activity management all within the context of a product. 

SAP (MDG-M) Updates & Automatic Asset Expiry

The Sunrise PublicAPI has been updated to allow SAP to automatically set asset expiry dates. When configured, SAP can now instruct Sunrise to mark previously created assets as 'expired' when the material is obsoleted in MDG. 

The Sunrise workflow can also be updated selectively from MDG-M after commencement of an activity, removing the need to cancel activity and recreate if data is retrospectively updated or corrected. 

Users with Activity Scheduler privileges or above, will be able to set an MDG-M update flag which will temporarily allow any masterdata changes to be updated in the Sunrise workflow. Once the update is complete, the flag is automatically removed to prevent unwanted changes to be actioned. 

Pin Asset Libraries to Dashboard


It is now possible to add an asset library to your homepage directly. Hover over the asset library and a new 'pin' option will be displayed. 


Once selected, the user will be able to see the pinned library on their homepage.

View User's Role(s) In Contact Card


When a contact card is displayed, the user's current public role(s) will be displayed. 

Approved With Comments Events

We have renamed the status "Approved (subject to refinements)" to "Approved With Comments" to make the action easier to understand. 

In the workflow designer, it is now possible to create Email, SOAP or REST events when a user provides an Approved With Comments verdict. 

Improved Email Formatting


Email notifications have been updated to provide a more consistent look and feel. We will continue to enhance email notifications over the next few months so that they provide as much useful information as possible. 

Improved Revised Asset Upload Screen


We've updated the Revised Asset upload screen so that the upload revision button is pre-selected. Additionally, the option the add extra assets will only be shown if the activity rules allow more multiple assets to be uploaded against the work item and the maximum number of allowed assets has not been reached.
