    Thanks for taking the time out to produce and share the Technology in Action videos!! I’m looking forward to seeing additional ones as they come out. Two questions, please:
    1. I’d LOVE if you could move some focus back to functionality that *doesn’t* require Mingle/SharePoint Enterprise. I’ve never met anyone that’s even begun going there (I’m in healthcare). We have some users who are interested in beginning to play with the contextual apps that we own so would love help and videos on that. (Sorry for the selfishness! Frankly though, sorry for the selfishness! And what I’ve found out there for videos around this topic are pretty lame, at this point. I posted to the Community to see if anyone is using contextual apps yet and haven’t gotten one response yet.
    2. Do I need Enterprise to be able to do the JSON functionality?? Seems very powerful!

      @Lenny – the following answers are provided by Delmar Dehn – Senior Product Manager

      1. The Infor Lawson Contextual Applications purpose-built for the Infor Lawson 10 applications are available at no charge to customers and will operate with either Infor Ming.le Foundation or Infor Ming.le Enterprise. The Infor Contextual Applications’ architecture and configuration are the same regardless if the Infor Contextual Application(s) is running in Infor Ming.le Foundation or Infor Ming.le Enterprise. So any Technology in Action video demonstrating an Infor Contextual Application operating in Infor Ming.le Enterprise is applicable to Infor Ming.le Foundation, too.

      2. No. The Infor Contextual Applications’ architecture and configuration are the same regardless if the Infor Contextual Application(s) is running in Infor Ming.le Foundation or Infor Ming.le Enterprise. So any Technology in Action video demonstrating an Infor Contextual Application operating in Infor Ming.le Enterprise is applicable to Infor Ming.le Foundation, too. So the JSON functionality is available in Infor Ming.le Foundation and Infor Ming.le Enterprise.

  2. Are there contextual applications that are delivered? If so, how do we activate and utilize them?

      Shawn,
      There are multiple contextual applications that are delivered with Infor Ming.le and there are contextual applications that are delivered with various Infor products such as Lawson for Infor Ming.le. The contextual applications that are delivered depend on the version of Infor Ming.le that you have installed. Some of the contextual applications like Paparzzi, Alerts, and Posts are only available with Infor Ming.le Enterprise. The contextual applications delivered by Infor Lawson are available with both Infor Ming.le Enterprise and Infor Ming.le Foundation.

      For instructions on configuring contextual applications check out the Infor Ming.le Administration Guide. The Infor Ming.le User Guide also contains instructions on using contextual applications.
