Midnight is now integrated with the enterprise accounting platform Acumatica. The Acumatica integration is a real time API based integration that handles costs, WIP and invoicing at the enterprise level. Release 7.1.2 has included additional functionality to this integration.
Order Version “Other Job Costs” added to Order
We have added the ability to account for additional or “other job costs” on an order. External costs, not currently being tracked in Midnight, can impact the overall profitability/loss for your business. Being able to add these costs will provide a better way to track expenses at the order level. This feature provides new flexibility to collect miscellaneous job related costs.
There are three (3) ways you can enter Other Job Costs:
- Manually add records to the Other Costs tab on the order screen
- Bulk upload using the data import tool
- Insert via the SOAP and REST API (OrderVersionOtherJobCostInsert) Please see the updated API documentation at https://api.vsmidnight.com
We have updated two (2) standard job costing reports (found on the order screen, red Reports button) to display the new Other Cost expense sections:
- Job Cost Report
- Job Detail Analysis Report
“On Order” Added to Inventory Item Quantities Tab
On the Quantities tab of any inventory item (Warehouse Module, Item screen), you will now find an On Order field. When you create a Purchase Order for an inventory item (ItemID), the quantity you have “on order” will display until you receive (create a Receipt and Assign/Putaway) the item into the Warehouse. The Receipt process will reduce the quantity “On Order” and increase the quantity On Hand. The On Hand will display the sum of the item on any open Purchase Order where the item has not been received.
We will be adding additional improvements to this feature over the next several releases.
Ability to Copy Drops When Copying an Order
We have added the ability to copy Drops from one Order to a new Order within the Order screen.
When the Global Setting of “Copy Drops on Order/Version Copy” is enabled, you will be prompted with a message asking if you would like to copy all Drops on this Order, after clicking the Copy button on the Order. This feature can be particularly useful for daily/weekly jobs that are manually recreated each month.
Shipments Added to Invoice Basic Report
We have added Shipping Tracking details to the Invoice Basic Report. Tracking numbers added in the Shipping Tracking Screen or captured through the ShipStation integration will now show on this standard report.
