New Features

This quarter we have reworked the Receiving module in Enterprise. These changes aim to reduce receiving errors while streamlining the process.

To prevent accidental receiving, the system no longer assumes you received all items in full. New buttons have been added to the action bar and line items to allow you to Receive or Delete all items. The action bar buttons can be enabled in the Receiving Security settings.

Section Selection

Last quarter we introduced the Automatic Section Breakout tool in projects. This tool creates new sections system-wide causing Section dropdown lists to bloat. To reduce the bloating of these lists, the system will now filter out sections that are not part of the project.

These filters were also added to the section lists in Enterprise. Sales Order and Quote section lists will only show the standard sections.

Project Pricing Performance

With this update, we have worked to improve the processing time in project pricing. We optimized the database interactions and removed redundant processes. These improvements should be most noticeable on large and complex projects.

Catalog Sequence Numbers

Until now our catalogs had a limit of approximately one million products in a product category. This limit has presented many issues for our team when adding new brands to our catalogs. With this update, we have significantly increased this limit. Our catalog maintenance team has already started to take advantage of this space.
