Dynamic Job Board (DJB):
– When you click the Order Number link you will be presented with a print preview of the work order. Now you can print it from the DJB.
– CSR column was added so one can sort the list and see what is assigned to themselves.
– The amount of text allowed in the notes field has been increased. You can also mouse over the field and see the full note.
– Rather than just show the creation date of the note, we now display the date and time of the note being added.
Job Costing: There is a new tab labeled, Search Time Records. This new feature allows you to enter employee clock-in and clock-out times for the day. A new report (see new Employee Detailed Time Clock report below) allows you to view employee time logged for a given time period. This feature is fully integrated with our Shop Floor Data Collection Module that allows employees to clock-in and clock-out as well. This new feature requires each employee to be associated with a Shift. Shifts are defined in the admin module as is the employee record where you can define the shift for a given employee. Reach out to our support team with any questions.
– New Report (Job Costing): Employee Detailed Time Clock. This report displays all the clock-in, clock-out times associated with employees for a given date range. You can report on a single employee or all.
– New Report (Job Costing): Service Detailed Time Clock – details all service and production time for employees.
– Summary Profitability Report (Job Costing): This report was renamed to ‘Summary Profitability by Customer’. It now sums all values for all customers in the footer of the report.

– One was able to define the default Postage Account for the customer via a dropdown on the main page. This has been removed and replaced with a new tab labeled, ‘Postage Accounts’ where you can define multiple accounts for a customer rather than just one.
– New Dashboard Widget: When setting up an employee, you can define what widgets display on her/her dashboard. A new widget named ‘Employees Clocked In’ has been created. This provides a real time view of employees currently clocked in to the Shop Floor Data Collection Module.
– Estimate and Order Search Screens: these search screens now retain the search parameters you enter until you clear them. This was a largely requested item.
