Date: 8 May 2004, version: 2.0004, rating: 50, platforms: All

F0254 - Option window to seek out file duplicates in a directory

Date: 21 May 2004, version: 2.0005, rating: 1, platforms: All

Help page is available at http://www.caliach.com/caliach/vision/help/general/woptdupfileanalysis.html

Get around: None

Caliach response: wOptDupFileAnalysis

F0255 - Option window for firm allocation cleanup

Date: 21 May 2004, version: 2.0005, rating: 10, platforms: All

Description: An option window, wOptDupFileAnalysis, is available which will operate along with the use of the optStockFirmAlloc option for firm allocation of multi-location stock on receipt. The allocation option only operates at the time of inward stock movement. This window can be used to identify free stock that is unallocated because it existed when the demand was created and also allocated stock for which there is now no longer any demand. It operates interactively with the Stock Control window. Help page is available at http://www.caliach.com/caliach/vision/help/general/woptfirmallocclean.html

F0256 - Refresh ledger transaction lists through context menu

Date: 23 Apr 2004, version: 2.0006, rating: 10, platforms: All

Description: When reconciling a bank account, after inverting the clear column, the only way to refresh the screen to show cleared only is to pick 'this year' and then reselect 'uncleared only'. Although this is a minor annoyance, it does take some time on a slow wireless network to rebuild the lists. It would be less clunky if there was a simple refresh button that updated the existing view. Caliach: All transaction headed lists use a common sub-window. A Refresh List has been added to the list context menu which, when operated, will cause the list to be re-built from the datafile.

Get around: Switch up and down accounts

Caliach response: mList, string=mAcTraListRefresh, wAcTraListSub

Date: 29 May 2004, version: 2.0006, rating: 30, platforms: All

Description: Remittance Advice Notes and Cheque reports have been re-structured. All reports printed from the G/L Bank Cheques window and other places that a remittance or cheque is printed have been redesigned such that they all are superclassed to a new rAcRemitSuper class containing all methods. This is both more efficient and enables more reliable and maintainable custom version designs. In addition to the line limit introduced in V2.0005 in some reports, a new transaction consolidation routine brings the detail in line with statement standards to make the document friendly. NOTE: All previously designed custom report versions need to be re-designed using the new classes.

Get around: None

F0262 - Ability to copy cell data from headed lists

Date: 6 Jul 2004, version: 2.0009, rating: 20, platforms: All

Description: Three new context menu commands for headed lists have been added. 'Set List to Copy Cell Data' sets a normal (un-editable) headed list into an edit mode so that the user can click-hover on a cell and then copy the contents to the clipboard. 'Copy All Lines to the Clipboard' copies the displayed list line data to the clipboard in tab-delimited form. 'Copy Selected Lines to the Clipboard' does the same thing but includes only the selected lines. This feature will be applied to all headed lists in future releases. Initially though it has only been applied to the four ScratchPads.

Date: 17 Sep 2004, version: 2.0011, rating: 20, platforms: All

Description: New RFQ design rPurchRFQmulti has been added. With the multiple-supplier RFQ report design, a single RFQ is selected but multiple RFQs are printed, one for each supplier that has purchase part records for any of the part items in the created RFQ. This is useful if you want to get quotations from all suppliers of a part or group of parts. All RFQs printed will contain any non-part or outwork line items and the RFQ for the supplier you chose for the original document will contain all items regardless of whether there are purchase part records. This should not be used to Email or HTML report destinations.

Get around: None

Caliach response: rPurchRFQmulti

F0268 - BoM Trial Kit new option to include backflush kit load

Date: 17 Sep 2004, version: 2.0011, rating: 20, platforms: All

Description: The Bom Trial Kit now has an option to 'Include kits of Backflush WOs in projected'. This option affects only the Projected Shortage quantity. If set, any current Backflushed WO kits will be included in the allocated quantity when the calculation is made of projected shortage. As demand for backflushed WO kit parts are not included in the Allocated part process quantity, running a trial kit for speculative sales, for example, would tend to understate projected shortages when backflushed WOs are in the system. This option has the effect of additionally loading the allocated quantity with current backflushed WO kit demand to a single BoM level so that this understating on projected shortages is minimised. WARNING: As backflushed WOs can be backflushed multi-level, be aware that this control only adjusts demand for the single level of the immediate kit.

Get around: None

Caliach response: wBomTrialist

F0269 - Drag and drop from Customer Parts and Purchased Parts maintenance

Date: 26 Nov 2004, version: 2.0013, rating: 10, platforms: All
