Lead developer Tyler Olmstead released v144 on Tuesday evening, July 2nd. Changes include:  

 

  1. Vendors can be deleted
  2. Notes appear in realtime for staff
  3. Balance Due flag includes total amount due

 






#1 - Vendors can be deleted


Version 144 unlocks the ability to delete parts vendors.  This action will not affect historic records: vendors on parts purchase records on the Purchases page or on repair orders.  


Currently this function does not allow you the means to select a surrogate vendor, to transfer parts in inventory to a different vendor en masse.  This will follow shortly.


For now, feel free to clean out all the miscellaneous vendors that have been lingering without a means to remove otherwise.  For duplicate vendors, stay tuned and you'll have a means to map your parts simultaneously.


To delete a vendor, you'll now see a trash can icon upon hover or vendor row expansion:



 



Upon delete, the vendor will no longer appear on the list.  Hooray!




 






#2 - Notes appear in realtime for staff


Version 140 included an alert when a customer visited a page.  This release expands customer realtime insights to include live posts of notes to the notes feed.


When a customer posts a note, that note will now appear immediately to any staff member viewing the RO.  


When another staff member posts a note, that note will now appear immediately to any other staff member viewing the RO.





Please note: at this time yours and your staff notes will not appear in realtime to customers.  


Customers will need to reload the page to see your new notes.


Stay tuned for more realtime enhancements to the repair order page!



 







#3 - Balance Due flag includes total amount due


Another user request, delivered!  


When you generate a PDF of an invoice with a balance due, the balance due remaining (whether remaining or total) will present in the "Balance Due" flag for easy reference:










This concludes Release Notes for Version 144.  Enjoy!
