You may find FWKS-5084 of particular interest regarding the behavioural changes to the Customer and Product finders
Sterland has added a new Customer Orders tab in the Supplier Transaction View (Lines section) that can be accessed via the Supplier Dashboard or Supplier Transaction Enquiry functions. The Customer Orders tab displays any product lines linked to a customer sales order and provides a hyperlink for ease of access.
Sterland is pleased to announced that a new flag has been introduced to optionally make the customer Mobile Number field mandatory when creating a new customer in Point Of Sale and Sales Order Processing.
Sterland has added new fields in the Customer Dashboard. Upon drilling into an invoice, for Invoiced and Credit Note transactions, the "Charge Details" tab now displays the Invoiced value (via the "Invoiced Value" field and the settlement discount via the "Settlement Disc" fields.
Sterland has added to the existing spooler purge program sys810k.p to include the purging of POS docket files from the spool directory. For instructions on how to do this, please refer to the relevant documentation.
Sterland is pleased to announce that the Product Finder now includes four new columns: RRP GST Ex, RRP GST Inc, Qty On C/O (product quantity currently on a customer order), and Qty On P/O (product quantity currently on a purchase order).
A scheduled task has also been introduced that calculates the On C/O and On P/O figures and loads them in a table so they can be readily referenced when the Product Finder is used, reducing loading time.
Additionally, there is a system numeric flag "QtyOrdDays" which dictates the number of days into the future the scheduled task will search to find Products on an order.
Sterland have resolved an issue with Credits & Refunds where in certain cases, the transaction total was lagging behind when adding up each transaction line and incorrectly passing a lower amount to the tendering activity.
Sterland has made modifications to the POS tendering process so that a connection to Nuvu is not required for the transaction to complete. This will stop issues with the system timing out and not allowing a sale to be processed when the Nuvu server cannot be reached.
Sterland has rectified an issue seen where if a POS transaction had registered a customer account before being suspended and resumed and if the customer then paid via cash (or any other non-account tender type), the transaction would incorrectly show as an invoice and would also adjust the customer balance.
Sterland has rectified an issue within Point of Sales and Sales Orders where a volume discount applied by the system was wrongly requesting an override reason code to be entered. This issue was only occurring if the quantity threshold was met when editing a product already added to the grid.
Sterland has rectified an issue with Purchase Order transactions. The 'Type' field in Purchase Orders can now be modified to either Stock Return or Value Claim after saving, but only if the transaction has not been receipted.
Sterland has made changes so that when a print format is not found it defaults to the standard format 20 rather than producing an error for the following print types: Delivery Docket, Invoice, Picking Slip, Purchase Order, Quote, Order Confirmation and Invoice Selection.
Sterland has modified the picking function so that any product lines that have not been either selected for picking or back-ordering are now automatically back-ordered upon clicking the "Complete Picking" button.
Sterland has rectified an issue when a blank error message was appearing when creating a special product with a duplicate product number. The system now recognises if a product number has already been used and will move to the next available number in the sequence.
Sterland has made changes so that when a new customer is created on the Sales Order screen, the mobile number field in the header tab is always populated with the mobile number entered when creating the customer account.
Sterland have made changes to standardise the rounding within Point of Sales and Sales Order processing. The Discounted Unit price is rounded to the number of decimal places defined by the Unit Of Measure before multiplying by the quantity on the line and rounding to the same number of decimal places.
Sterland has added an additional "Order Date" column in the Sales Order Dashboard to display the date the transactions are created (referencing the "Date Ordered" field within the Header tab of Sales Order Maintenance).
Sterland has rectified an issue with linked Purchase Orders where comments for special buy-in products were not being transferred to the Purchase Order. Comments from the Sales Order are now displaying in both the Sales Order Fulfillment screen and the Purchase Order screen for special buy-in products.
Sterland has rectified an issue seen when adding a tally product (after the initial save) to an order (that already contained a tally product) was removing the first tally length on the first tally line.
Sterland is pleased to announce the availability of two new reports: Creditors Control Account Notifications & Debtors Control Account Notifications. Both reports read through the nightly notifications generated and condenses them into a single report that can show if any imbalances have occurred.
Sterland has added two new columns to the Credit & Refunds grid: original discounted unit price and original total line price, with the hope that the new columns will allow easier comparison and understanding of the original transaction when processing a refund. Additionally, for a type overcharge, the discount column will now default to 0 and will be locked, since a simple return of funds should not include a discount deduction.
Sterland has amended the stock on hand calculation to include the products on orders within the interim invoice queue. The stock on hand figure used throughout Frameworks now better represents the actual stock on hand in store.
Sterland has modified Frameworks so that non-purchase Supervisors are able to print/save Purchase Orders that contain CDF products, however Purchase supervisors are still required to add CDF products to the Purchase Order. A validation error will occur if the user attempts to add a CDF product without the proper access.
Sterland has made several behavioural changes to the Customer and Product finders. These changes apply to all activities that use the Product and Customer finders and are summarised as follows:
The Customer and Product finders now force the user to enter a search string before returning a result list.
The finders do not auto find unless criteria is passed to the finder from the parent activity.
In Point of Sales, Sales Orders and Purchase Orders, the Customer and Product finders remember the search criteria entered by the user and re-display the criteria and results when the finder is reused from within the activity. (Note: it does not remember the criteria across the application - if you exit the activity and start again, then the finder criteria is cleared)
If the user enters a value into the Product field first then that will be used as the search criteria. If nothing is entered, then the last entered search criteria will be used.
In the Product Finder, the Qty columns are hidden unless a branch is selected.
Sterland has rectified an issue seen with linked Purchase Orders where multiple product lines with the same product were being receipted against the first instance of the product rather than split between the appropriate product lines.
