New Features

Tuesday October 04 2016

This branch has the following features implemented: 
New
3676138 - Write Off Transaction Codes and GL Codes
This enhancement allows inventory write-off; you do not need to manually enter the GL accounts, can set certain GL accounts for the particular purpose of transactions and can avoid requiring a human to manually enter the account numbers.
New
5582517 - Implement CyberSource Payment Gateway
As of this build, the CyberSource Gateway is fully implemented. If running Macola Progression, Currency Manager must be turned on as this gateway requires a currency code; Macola ES requires currency codes in default so nothing special needs to be done with it to use CyberSource.
New
5920147 - Integration of Global Payments ICT250 Pin Pad with BirdDog Cash
As of this build, our point-of-sale software works with this device and allows it to handle credit card transactions using the newer chip technology now being required by modern cards. This particular device handles both the magnetic strip and chipped cards.
New
7086840 - Add Fields to Locations
The Location page(s) have been converted to MVC (model-view-controller) and field support has been implemented.
New
7451135 - Order Rule: Set Order Line Location Result
With this new order rule result, you can have the system automatically change an order line location according to the criteria you set up. This is useful for clearly out backstock - for example, if you wish certain product categories to only pull items from a specific location or warehouse, that is easily set up. Alternately, if you wish certain customer types such as those who are Members or Vendors to pull from a different location than normal Retail customers, that too is easily handled by this new result.
New
7581185 - Create System to Receive Form Post and Write to Entity
We have integrated support for this feature which allows a completely custom html form to write data to our entity system, which we can later extract that information from via various means, including emails to the appropriate parties.
New
7641662 - Update Field Conversion to Log Even When Site is in Logging Level 1
While running the field conversion process (originally appearing in 9.8.0.14) while having the website set to logging level 1, no results were appearing once the conversion was complete so you could not identify any potential errors.
Better
7663444 - Add Due Date to Invoice View
We rearranged a few minor pieces on the invoice form, as well as adding the due date to the page.
New
7866317 - Order Rule: Create Set Customer Type Result
With this new order rule result, you can have the system automatically change a customer's type according to the criteria setup. For example, if you have the option for customers to purchase memberships that provide better pricing, this rule allows the system to change them to that customer type upon purchase.

7894412 - Add Documentation Ecommerce Tab of Site Settings
On-page documentation added.

7953963 - Licensing Errors Are Confusing
We revised the results for licensing errors to make them easier to comprehend and much easier to troubleshoot.
Better
7997986 - Add Ability to Add Columns from Query
Previous versions of the software showed a list of columns from the query, but they were only used to choose the unique column; now, you can add available columns via a convenient button.
Better
8231776 - Author By / Date Should Display If Set
In older versions of the software, you were required to use specific category layouts if you wanted the Authored By and Authored Date options to show up. Now, all category layout pages will show this if it is set on the page.
Better
8276031 - Want Better Display of Credit Card / On Account Option on Checkout Page
The options of Credit Card or On Account were difficult for customers to decipher on the Checkout page. We revised to make it more immediately apparent which option was selected.
New
8276169 - Log Original Visitor IP from CloudFlare
Added support for writing the client's IP address into Page Hits when using the Cloud Fare CDN by reading the CF-Connecting-IP http header.
Better
8449930 - Order Edit Changes
We altered how the order dates default within the system. Unless specifically changed, the Promise and Required Ship Dates both default to Requested Ship Date. We also significantly expanded the size of the order line window in Order Edit to facilitate larger orders with multiple items.
Better
8477115 - Add Due Date to Account Detail
When visiting Account Detail in Customer Service, all orders now show when payment is due.
Better
8490065 - Add More Columns to Merge Purge Display
We added email address, phone number and customer number to the merge/purge display to better identify which contacts were valid and which needs to be purged.
Better
8507830 - Add Documentation Current IP Address on Security Tab in Site Settings
On-page documentation added.
Better
8552967 - Allow Customer Service to Edit Orders on Credit Hold
Previously, on the order form in customer service, users with the customer service role could only edit the order if it had a status of booked. This was originally put in place to protect Picked, Selected, and Invoiced orders from being edited (you have to have the billiing role to edit an order in these statuses). However, this logic also prevented CSRs from editing orders on credit hold, which kept them from fixing orders that customers have placed that are over their credit limit by removing items or changing quantities. We have altered the way the system things to allow such a scenario.
