Release Notes

April 2023

New features and improvements coming your way for Planning, Orders, the Mobile App and the Public API.

Release Date

Wednesday 26th April 2023
In this release:

Planning

Additional Actions Available on Orders

Added the ability for more actions to be taken against multiple orders in the unplanned and selected run sections of the ‘Advanced Planning’ screen, including the ability to ‘Consolidate’ all orders at a location into a single ‘unload time’.

Filter by ‘Service’

We’ve added an option to allow you to filter orders based on ‘Service’ in the Unplanned Orders search on the Advanced Planning Screen.

Orders

Planned Date Column Option Added

Add an option to show the earliest planned date for items on an order as a ‘Planned Date’ column on the ‘Order Search’ screen

Mobile App

Better Validation When Submitting a Check

Previously in the app, when completing a vehicle check the ‘Submit’ button would remain disabled until all mandatory fields had been entered. 

This change means that now the ‘Submit’ button will remain enabled at all times, but when pressed, if any mandatory fields have not been entered, they will be highlighted with a red error message and the screen will automatically scroll to the position of the first incomplete mandatory field in the list.

This will make it much simpler to identify exactly which of the individual checks is preventing the checks from being submitted, as shown in the screenshots below. 

Public API

New Data Retrieval Service
