Import Purchase Orders.

There is now a new option available to import purchase orders (similar to sales orders). When you select the Purchase Order list, there is a new option available to import purchase orders.


Main Accounts Email Address field increased to 100 characters.

When entering contact information for customers and suppliers, you can now enter the Main Accounts Contact Email Address up to 100 characters.


Job Timesheets can now handle Extra Rates

The drop down list for the calculation of the rate selected has been extended to include Double Time + half, and also Quadruple Time.


Project Invoicing can now include Detail from Job Timesheets on Invoice Lines

When “Building the Invoice” in Project Invoicing there is now an option to select Show Labour Detail. This will add the details entered from the timesheet onto the Project Invoice.


Send to Bank Option Shows Amount to be Included in the File

When you select the option “Send to Bank” for both Payments and Direct Debits, the screen will now display on the left hand side the total amount to be paid, or receipted. The Send to Bank screen will show the total amount of all transactions as previously displayed, however, if you now mark a payment/receipt as on hold, then the reduced amount will be displayed on the left had side under the heading “Bank Transfer Total”. This is particularly useful if there is a limit to the value that can be included in the file.


QuickSalePOS – Default Location

There is now an option in the Operating Settings screen in QuickSalePos to set a default location for all sales. Previously this was defaulting to the last sales location selected. The bahaviour will remain as is unless the option is set


Warehouse Module now Supports Branch Module Selection Rules

If the site has both Branch’s Module and Warehousing Module, when setting up a Branch you can specify which product locations to see or not see. With the change in Warehousing users will only see the product locations and bins set up for their branch. All of the rest of the locations and bins will be hidden, therefore if a user is restricted from selling from a particular Branch, then that Branch will not appear.


Additional Field in Column Chooser to show Warehouse Bins.

If the site is using Warehousing Module, then the Bin Number field can be added to the product movement screen so that the bin movement can be seen.


Quick Add Activity Button for Opportunities

When you select either customer contact, or open an opportunity, there is a new button to allow the quick selection of an activity such as Add Appointment, Add Email Details, or Add a Note.


Search Structured Stock Sub Products

When you type in a product code in the Product List it will now search structured stock sub products (normally not visible unless expanded in the list) as well as non-structured stock products.
