Release testing recommendations

Version 5.3 is a minor release and whilst Sterland would always recommend a full system test on each release we understand that is not always achievable. As a guide the following is recommended for this release:

  1. Review and test any "green highlighted calls" 
  2. Test all calls released in the version that were logged by your organisation. This can be seen and sorted by downloading the Release spreadsheet and searching for your company name and/or ticket reference
  3. A base transactional test of POS, SOP and purchasing

Based on the specifics of this release we also recommend test in the following areas if they are in use within your business:

  • Point of Sale
  • Sales Orders
  • Special Buyins & Linked PO
  • Purchase Order
  • Stock Receipting
  • Stock Invoice Approval
  • Projects and Jobs
  • Credits & Refunds
  • Customer Order Processing
  • Purchase Requisitions
  • NEW FUNCTIONALITY NOW AVAILABLE: Product Maintenance

Fixes and Enhancements in this version

The following tickets are highlighted as they are either a key fix or a key product release improvement:

FWKS-6816FrameworksSpecial PricingSterland has tidied up Contract Maintenance as follows:

   1. When assigning Customers to job contracts, the User is no longer able to set the "Default" & "Auto Select" fields. These are not applicable on a job contract so have now been hidden.

   2. When assigning Customers to a National contract, the User is no longer able to set the "Default" & "Auto Select" to true. Both can be set to "No" but both cannot be set to "Yes".

   3. If multiple Users in different sessions are adding lines to a contract, it resulted in duplicate line numbers. The line number is now set by the server and sent to the User's session after the line is added.

FWKS-6225Both Frameworks & ProstixVariousSterland has rectified an issue with how the customer message in Prostix displayed after the same message was edited in Frameworks. Where the customer message exceeded 25 characters, and after the edit was saved in Frameworks, the customer message would only show the first line of 25 characters in the Customer Enquiry, POS, SOP and JOB screens  in Prostix. This fix ensures that the customer message is correctly displayed across the 6 lines available in Prostix to a maximum of 150 characters (6 lines of 25 characters per line).

NOTE: Prostix has a known limitation of only being able to display a maximum of 15   characters for the customer message (6 lines of 25 characters per line). If the customer   message is edited in Frameworks, and then exceeds 150 characters, anything past the    150th character will not be displayed in Prostix. There is no plan to increase the Prostix    customer message display capability beyond 150 characters.
