Release Notes

August 2023 (Part 1)

New features and improvements for Settings, Orders and the Public API coming your way when this month’s Stream Release lands.

Release Date

Wednesday 9th August 2023
In this release:

Settings

Custom Item Reason Codes 3954

We’ve added an option to set up custom item-level reason codes, which can be customised on the ‘Mobile App’ tab on the Settings screen. These allow drivers to select predefined reasons / notes for each delivery status e.g. when an item has failed delivery the driver can select a specific reason code like ‘Incorrect item’’. This information is then visible on the Order in the event history.

Within Settings, simply click the toggle on the item-level delivery code you would like to customise, and then click the drop down arrow to enter your own custom text to override the delivery code.

Add your Custom Item Codes in the Stream Settings
Drivers can then select the Custom Item Codes in the Stream mobile app

Additional PDF Print Options added in Settings 3913

We’ve added additional PDF document print options on the ‘Documents & Reporting’ tab on the Settings screen, including:

  • Job List > Display Business Partner
  • Labels > Show item label count
  • Labels > Hide the Print Label button on unconfirmed orders

Archive Products 3310

We’ve added an ‘Archived’ checkbox option to allow you to archive a product, which can be seen at the bottom of the ‘Product Details’ section of a selected product on the ‘Products’ screen.
