Release Notes

Release Date: 5/10/19


  • Deposit Invoice Accounting - this is for the Journal Entry (JE) for the "deposit on a SO" functionality. The invoice for the deposit goes over to QBD on the next sync, making the SO status as 'Awaiting Payment'. When the invoice is paid in QBD, the payment JE will come over to LOCATE on the next sync - the SO is now release for processing and the status changes to 'Ready for Pick'.
  • Added support for Custom Fields.
Email Templates
  • Improved the quality of auto-attached copies of emails.
  • Added deletion warning to groups when group appears in a rule (only "in group" and "not in group" comparison operators).

Manufacture Orders
  • Added memo field on order level and line level.
  • Added support for tracking on configurable type parts.
  • Created a flag for non-inventory parts that upon receipt will be passed through the non-inventory asset account to be immediately expensed to the Purchases COGS account. If not flagged, parts will retain cost in non-inventory asset to be expensed at time of sale.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that caused custom list sorting to not save on occasion.
  • You can now set required custom fields on Return Orders in more places.
  • Pricing Rule/Customer Pricing flags now transfers from Quote to SO on Quote Win
  • All dynamic fees/discounts applied by a user are now made static, meaning they will not be updated - they get applied and stick and so the user will now need to manually remove them.
  • Added handling to the CSV blank fields to prevent false positives when clearing fields.
  • Added validation for when a packline is not eligible for addition to a pack - an error message now pops up instead of resulting in the creation of an empty carton.
  • Fixed ability to save line sort order on PO by part number
  • Added additional handing for Drop Ship type PO's that are linked to a drop ship line on an SO.
  • The Part Alias now displays on Return Order reports and transfers to the output SO.
  • Added delete validation to prevent the orphaning of objects (to-do's) linked with schedules.
  • Adjusted the estimation and calculation processes for Taxify in LOCATE to encompass the required splitting of exempt/non-exempt tax calculations into two separate tax transactions as Taxify requires. This will correct the non-taxable sales values reported on Taxify reports.
  • Issuing a PO no longer clears out the vendor part numbers.
  • Corrected timing issue between Taxify and LOCATE regarding SO's that are Invoiced By Order
  • Added handling for single date searching in custom fields.
  • Corrected Address Book Permissions/ACLs regarding deleting.
  • Part Serialized Tracking Delete Confirmation now shows Label instead of the Field Name.
  • Added handling for packing serials for same part and multiple order lines.
  • Updated order merging to re-sort the lines - merging quotes and orders now appends the new lines at the end rather than sharing the sort order.
  • Alias deletion no longer makes the Customer unsearchable in the SO Customer search box.
  • Validation added to prevent users from creating duplicate serial numbers when correcting serial numbers in LOCATE.
  • Updated Sales Based statistics to operate off of invoices rather than sales orders.
  • Added void exclusions to all Purchasing statistics.
