BarTender 2022 Feature Enhancements
Secure Remote Label Printing
Your BarTender documents can be printed from your browser, from any device or operating system that’s connected to the internet — Windows, Android, iOS — anywhere in the world. It’s a great way to ensure labeling consistency and compliance among your first- and second-tier suppliers, vendors, clients and remote employees. And Print Portal keeps your system secure.
- • Your administrator assigns permissions to remote users, who sign on to print the labels you want them to, and only those labels.
- • Since Print Portal is browser-based, no local client or app needs to be installed on the user’s system. The user never accesses your network.
Intuitive, graphical workflow management
New in BarTender 2022 are configurable workflows — you can define document states and transitions to better manage labeling, from design to approvals to print. Increase the quality of your label production and enable end-to-end project tracking:
- • Design custom workflow models that are specific to your business needs using an intuitive, visual drag-and-drop interface
- • Create workflows for specific file types, or for files housed in specific folders in the Librarian document management system
- • Control who can access and advance files through the workflow at each state
- • Generate automatic email notifications to specific recipients, triggered when files move between workflow steps
- • Review and approve BarTender documents for production from any web browser, from any device or operating system that’s connected to the internet, anywhere in the world — Windows, Android, iOS
Improved business continuity and disaster recovery
New license server redundancy options in BarTender 2022 provide continuity — you can keep your print production environment running without interruption in the case of a license server failure.
Primary and failover backup servers are run in a resilient configuration. If the main or primary server cannot be reached by a BarTender client for any reason, it will automatically connect to the other servers in the relationship.
Expanded database integrations
Build tight, flexible integrations between your business systems and BarTender with expanded database options and support.
BarTender’s powerful integration capabilities now support over 20 different databases and data file types including these, new to BarTender 2022:
- • Excel Online
- • JSON
- • Google Sheets
- • QuickBooks Online
BarTender 2022’s .NET SDK now supports new Librarian and Print Portal REST APIs, providing powerful new workflow and web printing functionality.
Create commercial-quality designs
- • There’s a new interface for color selection in BarTender Designer. The Color Picker makes it easy to choose, identify and reuse a full spectrum of print and web colors throughout your BarTender documents. There’s support for PANTONE® colors, hex values and even data-sourced colors that populate your label dynamically.
- • BarTender’s Data Builder application now includes a Phrase Library, so you can build your own multi-lingual library of standard text phrases, and add and track the accompanying translations. This new Phrase Library is then accessed in Designer to populate your label designs.
- • Included is an Auto Translate feature which will translate a phrase that can be used as a starting point for a human translator to verify. You can also import and export the phrase library to CSV or TMX format files for even more accurate translations. (TMX files are typically used by translation services for professional translation.)
