In this release:

Planning

Show Full Planned Stop Description 4082

Updated the tooltip to show the full planned stop description when hovering over the information icon next to the Order Number on an order in the ‘Selected Run’ section of the ‘Advanced Planning’ screen.

Orders

Clicking Order in Search Bar Goes to Order Details 3598

Added an option so that when clicking an order in the header ‘Search’ bar, it will direct you to the ‘Order Details’ screen, as opposed to the ‘Tracking’ screen. This setting can be found on the ‘Orders’ tab of the ‘Settings’ screen.

Vehicles

Capture More Vehicle Information (Saturday 20th May Release) 4125 4165 4167

We’ve added new tabs and fields to the ‘Vehicle Details’ popup, as shown in the screenshots below. These fields have also been added to the ‘Vehicles’ export and the ‘Vehicles Table’ in Stream Analytics.

Some of these new fields will only become available for use once the new tabs are added to the ‘Vehicle Details’ popup in the second part of the release on Wednesday 24th May.

Rename Vehicle Types Management Screen 4047

We’ve changed the name of the ‘Vehicle Types Management’ screen to a more simple ‘Vehicle Types’. This change has also been reflected in the main menu in Stream.

Public API

New API service for logging ‘Scanning Events’ (Saturday 20th May Release) 3685

Creates scanning events in Stream against items or runs based on the results of scanning that has been performed in another system, for example a Warehouse Management System (WMS). This gives visibility in Stream of what scans have been performed outside of Stream, as well as when and by who.

Business Partners

Add Business Partner Logos 3901
