User Reviews of Infor VISUAL

Submitted on October 30th, 2019 by Anonymous

I really dislike what has been done to this software and the user screen windows. everything is STARK WHITE. No colors to help tone down the WHITE that is very hard on the eyes. Adjusting brightness on the monitor DOES NOT help. Hard to distinguish what is the FIELD and the BACKGROUND. It used to look like a very sophisticated software and easy to see and use. Now it looks like something that I could have created myself in Microsoft Excel. And at least I can color code Excel so I don’t have severe eye strain all day long. And all the new ICONS. you took all the color out of them also and they look like stick figures and hard to distinguish what they are. Unfortunately I am stuck with this upgrade. And I definitely don’t remember all this being on the demo that I viewed here a year ago.

The Good…

NOTHING on the new upgrade

The Bad…
