General Enhancements

Case#5316 – If a po was saved in draft mode, you couldn't edit it if the permission is turned off preventing users from editing po's, due to demand we have decided that this should not be the case, technically a draft po is not finished therefore they should be allowed to edit it despite the permission so we have enhanced to allow.

Case#5335 – When you save a transaction you have 2 options to select from draft, or save the default was draft and now we have modified this option so now when you save a transaction the option highlighted by default is save, not the draft option.

Case#5336 – We have fixed a display issue in global settings where if you set the use markup percent option enabled under sales/settings/price calculation then closed the window and returned, the screen didn't show you had that option enabled even though it is.

Purchasing Enhancements

Case#5302 – We have enhanced Purchase order authorization by adding an option in the po authorization tab of user permissions called "user can only see po's created within his budget category" if this is enabled the Purchase order list and list of Purchase orders in PO authorization only displays PO's related to his/her categoriesassigned.

Case#5334 – We have enhanced Purchase order authorization so when you create a new PO and there isn't enough funds the system alerts the user about insufficient funds but still allows the user to save thePO. If a PO is authorized or approved and user edits it and changing the amounts over the budget limit, when saving but automatically authorization/approval is status'd as declined until funds become available.

Case#5346 – We have enhanced the po budgets so if you modify the PO the budget allocated is modified to match the value of the modified po also if you modify an already approved or authorized po to a value exceeding the budget limit, the po is status'd declined automatically per case 5334 and the budget funds reserved are put back into the budget remaining pool until po is modified andre-approved/authorized.

Reporting Enhancements

Case#5312 – The transaction report generator was hard to find so we added this report option under the sales, purchasing and transfers printing menus.

Case#5312 – Under the purchasing menu within the report manager we added the PO budget report

Case#4539– We have added two new Report Generators designed in the following way one for sales and one for purchase orders.

Choose by: Customer or Date or SO# or a combination of those options, when you Choose the customer

however, the SO select will only allow you to select SO for that customer and only show within the date range he chooses if he chooses one. This will not pertain to SO’s that are closed.

After selecting this info and generating his report, this is what info displayed:

Customer Name/SO #/Item Code/Description/ QTY Ordered/ QTY invoiced/QTY left to be invoiced

BO)/PO#(customer)( PO# info comes from the original SO )

Sales Enhancements

Case#5315 – We have fixed an issue where if there are items with expiration dates and you select the item from the quick stock window then insert, the mfg lot inserts but the expiration date.

VisualImport manager enhancements

Case#4983 – We have added the ability to import Pull based supply chain minimum qty reorder points, NOTE: you MUST have item, location and reorder point in the source data along with location (mandatory) plus pull base supply.
