    Returns Shipments Table is LIVE

    We are stoked to introduce the all-new Returns Shipment table in Infoplus. This table mirrors the same data that is available on the Shipments table, except for any return labels that are generated.

    You can keep track of all your return shipments, run reports and analyses on the data in this table, and see all your data (including tracking) in one place. 

    For more information on how this table works and how to utilize it, please reference this Knowledge Base article.

    API Rate Limiting for System Stability

    To deliver the best possible experience for all Infoplus users, we recently implemented Rate Limiting into all live sites. Rate Limiting protects against slow performance, allows for scalability, and improves system stability. To ensure the safety of our API consumers and the API itself, we have determined the Rate Limit needs to be updated from 20 calls per user per second to 3 calls per person per second. 

    We understand it may take time for you to develop around these parameters. Therefore, we will be moving first to 20 calls per user per second and then down to 10 calls per second by November 1st. After the holidays, we will slowly decrease the calls to our ideal goal of 3 calls per user per second. 

    This new rate limit of 20 calls per user per second is currently active in all live client sites. If you exceed the new limit, you will receive a 429 error. 

    If you need help with optimizing your API calls in light of the Rate Limits, the Infoplus Professional Services team is available for hourly consulting and development. To request a consult with Pro Services, please submit a new ticket.

    Bug Fix: Audit Table Unable to Filter for Details

    Due to a bug discovered in the application, users were unable to filter the Audit Table by audit detail description in Infoplus. This bug caused an error when a query was run on the Audit Table requesting this data, which also caused automated reports to fail to send. 

    This bug has been fixed and reports run on the Audit Table related to audit detail description will continue to run and send as expected.

    Bug Fix: Load Stays Attached to Order After Order is Unfulfilled

    If an Infoplus user unfulfilled an order, this bug caused the load to stay attached to that order which caused the load to get marked as pending shipping, typing up the associated inventory.

    Now users can expect Loads to automatically un-attach to orders if they are unfulfilled so that inventory is properly allocated and the orders do not get in a bad state.
