Release Date

Wednesday 22nd February 2023
In this release:

Planning

Add Customer Reference Column to the Unplanned Orders List

We’ve added a ‘Customer Reference’ column to the ‘Unplanned Orders’ list on the Advanced Planning screen to improve the user experience, as this column was already present in the ‘Selected Run’ section.

Filter by Depot on the Resource Schedule

On the ‘Resource Schedule’ popup window from the Advanced Planning screen, we’ve added the ability to filter the schedule by ‘Depot’, for better visibility when planning for businesses using multiple depots.

Order Removal Warning on ‘In Progress’ Run

We’ve added a pop up warning message that will alert you when trying to remove an order from any run which is ‘in progress’.

Reports

‘Stock Location’ added to the ‘Run Items’ export

We’ve added the ‘Stock Location’ to be displayed as a column when exporting the ‘Run Items’ report.

Settings

Add Multiple Vehicles to a Run

We’ve added a new option which can be turned on from the ‘Planning’ tab on the Settings screen, which will allow you to add multiple vehicles to a single run. 

The ability to add multiple vehicles to a run allows for easier planning for businesses who may be using a standard vehicle with a trailer attached to it for additional capacity, for example. 
If you would like access to this feature and are unable to access the Settings screen in your Stream account, please contact [email protected].
