Lead developer Tyler Olmstead will release v153 on Wednesday evening, September 4.  Changes include:  

 

  1. Sound Notifications available on RO Transfers 
  2. Vehicle Service History linked from Customer Profile
  3. Vehicle Service History includes links to ROs and Customer Profiles
  4. Invoice Number required on Return Orders

 





#1 - Sound Notifications available on RO Transfers


When a work order is transferred, Shop-Ware clocks how long it takes for the other staff member to accept it, to help you identify if they haven't seen it or there is another competing issue (test drive, lunch break, etc.).  

However the transfer may also sit there unnoticed if employees are simply away from their device and not aware that they should check for notifications. 

This new profile setting allows your staff to add an audible cue to the transfer notification they receive.  

There are four sounds to customize according to the work setting (shop or office) or multiple workstations in close proximity.  

The sound will play once for each transfer notification.  

It only plays for the person receiving the transfer, it does not play for the person who sent it, when the transfer is accepted.  

The sound does not play for other events at this time.  

The sound does not play on mobile devices at this time.


Customer view notifications coming soon!

 









#2 - Vehicle History linked from Customer Profile


Continued improvements to Vehicle History!  

You will now find a link to Vehicle History from the customer profile page.  

This way you can access the Vehicle History page from either a RO or a Customer's profile. 







 








#3 - Vehicle Service History includes links to ROs and Customer Profiles


You will also find links directly to Invoices and Customer Profiles directly from the Service History Report.  

All links open in the same tab so you can navigate back and forth between Invoices and the report without having to close tabs.  

If you wish to open a page in a new tab, hold the COMMAND/CONTROL key when you click the link and it will launch in a new tab for you.

 


 








#4 - Invoice Number required on Return Orders


Return Orders track what you've returned to a vendor for credit. 

When that credit is received, you receive the corresponding Return Order and fill out the details. 

The Invoice Number is now a required field that must be entered to continue.  (This is consistent with Purchase Orders.)  

This information will likewise sync to Accounting Link, for those using it.

 














This concludes Release Notes for Version 153.  Enjoy!
