Lead developer Tyler Olmstead will release v141 on Tuesday evening, June 11th. Changes include:  

 

  1. Account Owner permissions are locked to the highest
  2. Staff member gets an email when their email is changed
  3. Return Records sync to Accounting Link
  4. Parts Tags included in Inventory Export



 


#1 - Account Owner permissions are locked to the highest


The last release (see version 140 notes) included the means to review and change your Shop-Ware Account Owner.  This release grants the account owner certain security and permissions controls.  


Now the account owner:


  • Has the highest permissions, and those permissions cannot be changed by anyone
  • Is the only staff member that can edit the RO number (on an estimate)


We will be layering more security control onto the Account Owner soon.  We've been in touch with every active user to confirm their ownership assignments.


Anyone with questions or concerns about security controls is welcome to contact Support@Shop-Ware.com

 





#2 - Staff member gets an email when their email is changed


In the continued effort of tightening security controls, users will now receive a notification when their emails are modified.  If you change a staff email, the original email account holder will receive a notification that their email was changed.


This protects against someone with access to settings changing an individual user's account to another email, resetting the password, accessing the application, and impersonating the user.  


We will be adding controls that limit editing the Account Owner's email to the account owner only (likely v142).  Stay tuned for more progress on Security features in upcoming releases.







#3 - Return Records sync to Accounting Link


This is the first in a series of Accounting Link improvements, by popular demand! 


With this release, Shop-Ware now passes "return records" (the credit equivalent of "purchase records") to Accounting Link: the ability to sync returns to Accounts Payable.  This is based on user feedback on how to improve our integration.  Stay tuned for more benefits over forthcoming releases: customer payment type customization, vendor payment type entry and customization, and additional vendor management sync.




 


#4 - Parts Tags included in Inventory Export


This release also includes the addition of parts tags to the inventory export.  







This concludes Release Notes for Version 141.  Enjoy!
