Sales Orders

If it is being set to NO, this will result in $0 tax. You can then manually set the tax to whatever you like. If it is being set to YES, the whole order will be re-estimated and result in whatever Taxify provides.
  • Added 'Buildable Quantity' display to the SO Quick Add. LOCATE will now calculate the quantity buildable for LM items as the are being added to a SO, as well as 'Quantity Available' (based on the availability of components) for Non-LM Bundles.

  • Added memo field.

  • Added additional warnings to all service delete requests.
  • LOCATE can now import custom fields for sales order and sales order line through the database direct shopping cart integration. The fields must be aliased as "custom_" and the api_field_name of the custom field. The API field name is generated when a custom field is first created and remains constant through field name changes to ensure the integration won't break during updates to fields.
  • NEW - Refunds! Users can now issue refunds on payments made in LOCATE via the Authorize/net service, provided none of the order has been fulfilled.
  • Quickbooks Desktop - the LOCATE Customer Number now syncs over as the Customer Account Number.
  • Quickbooks - added a setting to control whether invoices are flagged for printing or not.
  • SellBrite - added handling for bundled items.
  • ShipStation - added ability to use a field map to override how fields are mapped in ShipStation, including changing which values are placed in which custom field positions. This is something that must be performed by LOCATE staff.
  • Shopify - updated Customer Number field mapping to prevent confusion with duplicate fields that appear on customers, orders, etc. This allows users to use the customer note field to contain your customer number in Shopify. Example: If you wanted to use the customer note field to contain your customer number in Shopify you would enter "customer.note" as the field mapping setting value.
  • Zoho - general updates.

  • NEW GRIDS! LOCATE has begun adding dynamic columns on list pages - this feature is now available on the Customers, Parts, Vendors, and Use Order modules with more updates to come!
  • NEW Users can now filter by Service in the Custom Fields sub-tab within modules.
  • Added clarity to the Advanced Search Custom Fields to help differentiate names with similar descriptions. (Tags: Shopify, Tags: Other Shopify, Tags: The OTHER Other Shopify)
  • Added Audit action across all modals.
  • Added prompt to Report delete - users must now manually type in DELETE to remove reports.
  • Added ability to multi-select "default" parameters. This allows a user to run a report for "part type is inventory" or "part type is inventory or service".
  • Added "Status Page" to the drop down Help Menu. This page shows a list of all LOCATE systems and their operational statuses, along with response times and a list of incidents reported. From this page, users can sign up to receive email notifications whenever LOCATE creates, updates, or resolves a system incident.
  • Added Salesperson filters on reports.
  • NEW Added validation rule to indicate when Customer/Order Tax Exemption are out of sync. This applies to quotes, sales orders, and return orders when a customer's current tax exemption status and the taxable status of one or more lines on the order do not align.
  • LOCATE will no longer clone the tax exempt flag on a quote or sales order. This is to ensure that cloned orders automatically begin calculating tax as the order is updated/changed. Previously the flag from the original order was maintained which caused issues with eCommerce orders being cloned which have estimate_tax set to off by default to prevent conflicts between eCommerce tax calculations and LOCATE tax calculations.
