Release Notes

Release Date: 10/05/18


Bill of Materials
  • Added "Audit" to Actions menu.

NEW Calendar
  • The calendar icon can be found on the main tab bar between the Settings and Mail icons. This lists all scheduled items in LOCATE (picks/packs/cycle counts/etc). You also have the ability to create additional scheduled events.

  • Carrier Fulfillment workflow - added two new fields - "Requires Packing" and "Requires Shipping" - these control whether or not those operational steps need to be performed when that carrier is used. If no carrier is provided on an order, a new setting will determine if the shipping operation is used. This currently affects 'sale' lines on SOs, 'checkout'/'consumption' on UOs, and 'send' lines on TOs.

  • Added Use Orders to the Orders sub-tab in the customer screen.
  • Added Invoice Due Date to the Orders sub-tab in the customer screen.

  • Added "Audit" to Actions menu.
  • Added support for Custom Fields.

Email Notifications
  • Added an email event for when a Sales Order is ready to pick - pick/created - that can be sent to alert users of a new pick.

  • Added "Audit" to Actions menu.
  • Added support for Custom Fields.

  • NEW Added Pick Order field - this specifies the order in which locations should be checked for available inventory. This Pick Order is utilized by the Pick Plan (method, e.g. FIFO/FIFO) that was added entitled "Pick Location Order" which uses the Pick Order field to determine the first, second, third, etc, locations to check for inventory for each pick line (Note, this order operates independent of sort order).
  • Added ability to flag Stock type locations at a use_pickfaces site as pickable - this allows you to make your backstock locations pickable without needing to make them "pickfaces" since you will never re-supply your backstock.

NEW Manufacture Orders
  • Manufacture orders allow you to create and manage multiple work orders from a single place. Lines on a manufacture order will create and link to work orders to build the part or bill of material listed on the line.

  • Added pop up alert message when payments fail or get declined. The message is also logged into the payment section of the sales order.
  • NEW Shippo Support for Estimated Shipping Costs - this is a new service view for estimating shipping costs on "unissued" sales orders, located under the Actions sub-tab. You can then add a shipping line with your default shipping part through this new view right onto the sales order.
  • LOCATE can now update the workflow during a part substitution on a Sales Order, allowing a user to swap a service part for an inventory part, or an inventory part for a non-inventory part, etc. Please note, this does not extend to configurable parts.
