Release testing recommendations

Version 5.3.1 is a patch 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 5.3.1 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
  4. Based on the specifics of this release we also recommend test in the following areas if they are in use within your business:

    • Purchasing
    • Sales Order Processing
