Release Date:

Stream’s May release will be arriving in two parts.

Part 1: Saturday 20th May (Including 1 hour of downtime 18:00pm-19:00pm BST).
These items have been noted with a date below. 

Part 2: Wednesday 24th May


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.


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.


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.

Mobile App

Automatically Scroll to the Next Stop 3054


The mobile app will now automatically scroll the next stop on the run when returning to the list of stops

Drivers Can Now Add Internal Notes in the App 4061


We’ve added an option that can be turned on to allow drivers to add a note on the app, when completing a stop, that appears as an internal event on the order and will not be visible on the customer tracking screen. This setting can be turned on from the ‘Mobile App’ tab of the ‘Settings’ screen.

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
