Release testing recommendations

Version 5.4.1 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 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, as well as:
    • Trade Portal

FWKS-7678FrameworksCentral AllocationsSterland have made the following changes to the processing of Weighbridge Ticket Reversals:

1. The Consolidated Invoice will contain all tickets before the reversal and will not change as part of the reversal process. Whereas the Credit Notes will contain only the reversed tickets.

2. The tickets contained in the original RCTIs and the new reversal RCTIs are dependent on when the reversal is made:

- If the reversal is made before the transport company runs the Central Allocation scheduled task, there will only be one RCTI and it will contain all the tickets (original and reversed).

- If the reversal is made after the transport company runs the Central Allocation scheduled task, a new reversal RCTI will be produced containing only the reversed tickets. The original RCTI will remain unchanged since presumably it has already been sent to the supplier.
