    Product Update: Editing and Closing old and partial POs and ASN, Auto Order Packing, Better Auditing and Messaging, and a ton of bug fixes and small enhancements

    This week's release is packed full of two requested features, a bunch of product updates and a ton of quick fixes and bug patched.  Check out the entire set of release notes to get into the details and see how your Support Teams, Account Managers, and Product Engineers are working every day to get your feedback, improve your products and workflows, and focus on your success. 

    New Features

    Edit and Close old and partial Item Receipts, PO's and ASNs

    Now you can edit Item Receipt records directly within Infoplus, regardless of what status they are in. You can edit them individually, or in bulk; this gives you the ability to correct or adjust data that was entered at the time of receiving. For example, you can edit a receipt’s weight, units per case, or distribution date. Try it out today.

    Auto Order Packaging with Custom Cartonization and Scripts

    You can now use a script in Infoplus to customize the logic to decide what Carton Types are available for your orders, when using automatic Cartonization as part of your fulfillment processes.

    You can make decisions in your script based on any attributes of the order or the carton types. For example, if you have orders shipping with a certain carrier, and they must use the carrier's cartons, you can ensure that the order only has those carton types available. Or if you have specific carton types that you want to use only for orders shipping via air service, you can do that as well.

    To get started, create a new Script, and choose the Cartonization type. Then, in your Fulfillment Plans choose that script in the Cartonization Script field. Contact our support team for more information.

    Product Updates

    Additional Fields in Packing Slip Templates

    You can now add additional fields to the line item section of your Packing Slip Templates. You can choose to show the weight for each line item, the number of pallets shipping on the line, and/or the Production Lots that were shipped for the line. These fields are only available if your packing slip is not per-carton.

    Better Audits

    Before last night's release, some values in Audits (specifically on fields which reference values from other tables or predefined lists) would be represented only by their internal reference ids, instead of text that you can understand. For example, in an Order's audit, a detail would be given such as: “Changed Status from 1 to 2”.

    However, after this week's update, the above audit detail will be recorded as “Changed Status from On Order to Processed”. In addition, all of these details in the audit window will now be sorted, to make it easier to find a specific field. There are also updates to value formatting (specifically, adding commas in large numbers), and some false change notifications have been removed (such as “Changed Weight from 5.50 to 5.5”).

    Better Error Messaging

    Several cases have been identified in the Warehouse Ops Apps (specifically, Fulfillment Pick work and Receiving), where previously generic error messages were being shown to users, despite more specific details being available. These apps have been updated to provide these more specific details.

    For example, entering a non-numeric value on the screen prompting for a Put Away quantity in Receiving used to say "unknown error", but now says that the entered value is not a number.
