  • Internet address of NET Genium – a semicolon-separated list of these addresses will be used in e-mail messages sent by the script and will ensure that the user can be redirected to NET Genium for specific records.

2.1.4. Time zone

  • The NET Genium time zone is automatically set to the time zone of the server on which NET Genium is hosted.
  • By selecting a specific time zone from the drop-down list, this setting can be changed to the desired value.

  • The date format affects the display of date data across the entire application.
  • The drop-down list contains the following options:
    • dd/mm/yyyy – day month Year
    • mm/dd/yyyy – month, day, year

2.1.6. Default map

  • The default map defines the default geographical center of all map data that does not contain any points on the map in the currently displayed data visualization. In other cases, the geographic center is calculated automatically from all points displayed on the map.
  • The default map controls the search for addresses stored in “TextBox” controls called “Find on map”, “Find on map” or “Find on map”.
  • The drop-down list contains the following options:
    • Czech Republic – address search offers map portals “maps.google.cz” and “www.mapy.cz”.
    • Slovakia – address search is offered by the map portal “maps.google.sk”.

2.1.7. Full-text catalog

  • Catalog for the full-text file attachment search function.
  • The drop-down list contains the following options:
    • None – File attachments are never searched while searching for values in lookup tables.

    • Indexing Service – while searching for values in look-up tables, file attachments are searched using the “Indexing Service” in the catalog, the name of which is entered in the text field below the drop-down list of the full-text catalog. The “Indexing Service” was last available in the “Windows Server 2008” operating system, so we recommend replacing its use with the full-text catalog “Windows Search”. A detailed description of the configuration of the “Windows Search” full-text catalog is given in the separate “NET Genium Installation” manual.

    • Backup SMTP Server – all e-mail messages that fail to be sent the first time using SMTP Server 1 are forwarded for sending using SMTP Server 2. If SMTP Server 2 is not defined, or fails when sending a message using SMTP Server 2, the e-mail message is saved in the “Logs” directory as an “eml” file, and “ResendEmlFiles.exe” tries to resend it, Which is typically run every 30 minutes using a scheduled task.
    • Script – SENDMAILMESSAGE2()
  • If neither SMTP Server 1 nor SMTP Server 2 is defined, all e-mail messages are stored in the “Logs” directory in the form of “eml” files. The “ResendEmlFiles.exe” program, which typically runs every 30 minutes with a scheduled task, attempts to resubmit them. Messages successfully sent by “ResendEmlFiles.exe” are deleted from the “Logs” directory, unsuccessful messages sent by “ResendEmlFiles.exe” will be sent a total of 48 times (which corresponds to attempts to send a message during a full day at 30 minute intervals), and then ignores these files in the “Logs” directory. The list of unsuccessfully sent or already ignored messages is stored in the configuration file “Logs/ResendEmlFiles.errors”.
