Bug Fixes and Enhancements in this version:
Sterland is pleased to announce a complete re-work of the Point of Sale functionality to improve a user's performance and ease of use, moving users away from requiring multiple clicks of the mouse. Refer to FWKS-4282 below
Sterland has rectified Despatch Details in Sales Order, Point of Sale, Customer Order and Credit & Refunds to validate the Map Reference and Delivery Area.
Sterland has rectified an issue in Point of Sale regarding the invoice total amount deducting GST when an order was released in a GST Inclusive environment. The invoice total amount ("Total Inc GST" field) is now GST inclusive after releasing an order.
Not Applicable. Refer to existing processes.
Sterland has rectified an issue where a large amount of records were causing a delay in the loading of diary notes in the Customer Dashboard.
Sterland has rectified an issue where on Purchase Requisitions the save was initiating validations for tally product details for lines that were not yet completed. This validation has been removed and placed on the Orders Selected options and will only occur when attempting to post the incomplete lines. This change will allow the user to save incomplete information to be later edited before posting the batch.
Sterland has rectified an issue with an error message appearing when printing an order for the first time on a branch transfer purchase order, which was not allowing users to proceed to the Receipting screen (via the Receipting button).
Sterland have rectified an issue where in tier pricing, a section that had been created with a section number that was not equal to the line number of the record in the miscellaneous table was not behaving as expected. Additionally, upon import, the "On contract" flag was not being set per the defined value in the file. Both issues have been resolved.
Sterland has rectified an issue; you are now able to successfully paste data into the grid of system user maintenance.
Please refer to: FWKS-4674 below. This issue is an addition to FWKS-4674.
Not Applicable. Refer to existing Sales Order processes here: Sales Orders
Sterland has rectified an issue where deposits taken for orders created in Point of Sale were not creating the corresponding GL movements. The correct GL movements are now occurring and can be tracked in the GL dashboard.
Sterland have rectified an issue regarding the Unit of Measure finder not popping up in the Point of Sale transaction when the scanner input is setup.
Sterland has made a change to automatic delivery charges so that they are allocated line number 99999. This change is to address an issue where a product was being given the same line number as the charge and preventing the save of an order.
Not Applicable. Refer to existing Sales Order processes here: Sales Orders
Sterland have rectified an issue where in a specific case, multi-tender sales were dropping into a suspended state instead of being processed.
Sterland have resolved an issue where a system error was being displayed on the screen when a Company finder was clicked on, preventing the user from continuing.
Frameworks is now able to create a report that splits sales by cost centre depending on the person who performs the sale. For this, a new field has been added to user maintenance to allocate a cost centre to a user. The query report will be used by the Sterland implementation team.
Sterland is pleased to announce that failed imports into the Customer Order Processing module will now send an email to the defined user with the failed import file and the error file as attachments - this will allow for quick amendments to the import file.
Sterland has rectified an issue where if the quantities and products sent by a transfer branch in a branch transfer were different to the initial quantities and products requested by the destination branch, the receipting process would not update to cater for these amendments. The receipting figures now always reflect what was released by the transfer Sales Order.
Frameworks now has the functionality to set the default of tender types to blank. When activated (flag controlled), cash Point of Sale transactions and tendering Customer Payments will have the default payment type set to blank. Currently if the flag is not activated, the default of payment type is Cash.
Sterland have rectified an issue where a Mighty Rewards customer could not refund a cash sale, as it was falsely producing a "deleted by another user" error message.
Sterland have rectified an issue whereby multiple users are no longer able to update the same Sales Orders and Purchase Orders simultaneously.
Sterland is pleased to announce it has added a branch transfer option to the Purchase Requisition process. If the appropriate flags are set, a user is able to see when a product has excess stock at another branch and then allocate that product to be transferred when the batch is processed. Additionally, a new grid has been added in the product information section which displays branch stock information (the details of which are further explained in the documentation). Lastly, the restriction on internal account Suppliers has been removed and can now be selected without error in the product entry and grid.
Frameworks now has the functionality to allow users to change the invoice date for Sales Orders. When activated (flag controlled), the Sales Order invoice date can be modified as part of the Order release process.
Sterland has rectified issues with the generic rewards system not being able to create a new entry without first entering a customer number & falsely triggering validation when tabbing off the email field. A new flag ('Not Provided' checkbox) has also been introduced to allow a user to bypass the mobile phone field mandatory validation.
Sterland have rectified an issue regarding the re-costing of product/s in Branch Transfers. The product cost is now re-costed correctly to its current applicable cost upon release of the Branch Transfer - Sales Order. The new product cost is then written back to the receipting screen of the branch transfer which overrides the original cost assigned in the Purchase Order - branch transfer upon receipting. The end result is that if a difference in branch cost exists, the final product cost will be the value of the cost as assigned on the transfer branch.
Sterland have rectified an issue with the use of the product barcode in the Point of Sales, Sales Order Processing, Purchase Requisitions and Purchase Orders screens. Frameworks can now immediately recognise the product in the aforementioned screens when entering the product barcode.
Not applicable. Refer to existing processes.
Frameworks now has the functionality to display sales and stock information of products in the Sales Order Fulfilment screen and Purchase Requisitions screen. The product number found in the Sales Order Fulfilment screen and Purchase Requisitions screen was changed into a hyperlink, wherein when clicked, the Purchase Sales Information screen is displayed which contains sales and stock information of the product for a specific branch. In addition, the column 'Avail' in the Sales Order Fulfilment screen has been removed.
Sterland is pleased to announce that there are two new system codes that can be set up to automatically populate the delivery area and despatch method of branch transfers when created from purchase order maintenance. This functionality will soon (next version) be extended to include branch transfers created from linked purchase orders and purchase requisitions.
Sterland is pleased to announce that an attachments option has been added to Stock Invoice Approval, Expense Invoice Entry and Creditors Invoice Registration to allow users to upload copies of physical invoice/s when entering the details into the system. The attachments are stored in a directory path defined by the new system code and can be later accessed and edited via the new attachments button found on the Supplier invoice record (opened from within the Supplier Dashboard).
Sterland is pleased to announce that users can now import both Customer and Supplier contact details in Frameworks via a utility program in Prostix. The imported main and secondary contacts are maintained in the Contact Maintenance module in Frameworks.
Sterland have rectified issues within Sales Orders where if a transaction was back ordered, some of the details from the original transaction were not correctly being passed to the back ordered transaction.
Sterland have rectified an issue where an order created against a customer that is on credit hold could still be approved for release via the Order Credit Approval function. This has now been resolved.
Sterland is pleased to announce a new query report is now available that lists supplier products for purchasing, specific supplier product information and product branch information like stock on hand, yearly sales and minimum order quantity. The products can be filtered by a flag â€œonly below minimumâ€ which only display products whose current SOH is equal to or below the defined amount.
