Quality of Life Improvements

  • Added the ability to select the Source Currency for Pos on the PO tab of Master Files > Items.

  • Send POs now cleans up any .PDF files that are created when sending the mail.

  • Added an “over receive” prompt from Supplier Transfers.
  • Added the Build Item’s Description to the Production Schedule tooltip.
  • Added Ctrl-Scroll Wheel support for our grids so that you can scroll horizontally without having to click on the controls.

  • Added a button to the WO Detail toolbar to allow adding a new row duplicating from the currently selected row.
  • Companies with only a Single Location defined will have that Locations pre-fill when performing Move transactions (while using Bin Tracking).
  • Added Order Quantity to the Invoice PO Field Chooser.

API Additions

  • We have exposed the MO detail population from BOMs process.
  • We have exposed the PO Numbering settings/increment procedure (allowing you to generate the next PO number programmatically).

Dashboard Alert/Visualization Improvements

  • Streamlined creating new chart layout.
  • Added the ability to select a multi-chart view page as the Info Center.
  • Added the ability to have chart data refresh each time you open the Dashboard.
  • Added the ability to reference MISys calculated fields within clauses.
  • Added more options to group by for the MO Header (Customer, SO Number, Created By), PO Header (Buyer), Work Centers (WC Class), WO Header (Created By & Released By), and WO Details (Customer & SO Number).
  • Added DB Alert actions to charts.

Beginning Work on Cloud Deployment Options

  • As we continue work on optimizing MISys for cloud deployment, we updated our password hashing algorithm to better protect against current password cracking methods.
  • Other changes, while not yet exposed as “cloud features,” did offer some significant improvements to on-premise performance (in certain areas) and are listed elsewhere, with more yet to come!
