Our December 2017 update includes a welcome new feature: Multilanguage item descriptions and extended item descriptions. Read more below about this and other new features.
It is now possible to specify item descriptions in any one of ten different “customer facing” languages. These will be used on customer reports such as order confirmations and invoices. In addition it is possible to enter a long description which is optionally showed on order confirmations. The long description is 4000 characters. The existing description is 200.
The descriptions are entered on the item card on a new “Description” tab. If you update the description in your system language (English) then this is what is shown on the screen.
Expected costs on sales orders
There are now 5 fields on a sales order line for “Expected costs”. These can be used if you wish to record the cost of making or suppling an item as you see it at the time of order entry. The five fields are for each of the different item types, materials, work time, machine time, subcontract and other. The use of these fields is optional but provide a clear way to record costs perhaps obtained from a third party tool such as a cad system.
There is a new end point for sales dispatches (shipments).
Other minor items
There are also a range of minor bug fixes included. If you have reported an issue in a ticket then you will get an update to this ticket over the next few days.
That’s it for this release!
