Sites that originally purchased MISys Manufacturing before June 2013 (before v6.1) may need to upgrade their instance of SQL/SQL Express to a newer version. For instructions on how to do this, please review How to: Upgrading Earlier Versions of SQL Express to SQL Express 2014.

New Features

  • Purchase Orders now support auto-populating Custom Fields from Item Custom Fields - Similar to how BOMs and MOs currently behave, PO details now have the ability to populate Custom Fields from Items. This requires that both the Item and PO Custom Fields are configured similarly.
  • Added ability to close multiple Orders (POs, WOs & MOs) - This is a long requested feature, and it’s been implemented for each of our order types. While it cannot have the granularity of a single order close, you can now multi-select from the order grid and then close each selected row at once. The help will fully describe this addition, just search for “close multiple” or something similar!
  • Option to Hide Closed Orders (POs, WOs & MOs) - Added a new “Hide Closed” button to the navigation toolbar for the main grids for POs, WOs & MOs. This allows for an immediate hide/display of all closed orders.
  • Production/Supply Schedule settings are now persisted - Zoom, date and other selections for both areas are now persisted through login sessions.
  • Replace/Add/Remove BOM Component function enhanced to allow the resulting Revision to be marked as current - Similar to being able to select “Force New Revision”, you can now select “Make New Revision Current” which will automatically make the created Revision the Current Revision (saving you a lot of time!)
  • Dashboard Alerts enhanced to consider data from related tables - Dashboard Alerts can now consider related tables when applying criteria for filtering.
  • Dashboard Alerts/Advanced Find enhanced to allow math statements using multiple fields - This is a long requested feature. You can now perform math from multiple fields. Say you want to create a Dashboard Alert that would display any Item Location details where the Stock Quantity + the On Order quantity is greater than the Minimum Stocking threshold. Now you can!
  • Dashboard Alerts/Advanced Find now has Does Not Contain/Does Not Exist Clauses - Added the ability to use these clauses in both Dashboard Alerts and Advanced Find.
  • Added option to Ignore Inactive Items from the Physical Inventory Worksheet - Inactive Items can now be filtered from the Physical Inventory Worksheet (and as such for any feed into the Physical Inventory batch).
  • Added option to Ignore Inactive Items, Closed Orders & Posted Batches to the Data Integrity Check - Added options to individually skip Inactive Items, Closed Orders and/or Posted Batches from consideration in the Data Integrity check. Larger databases should see significant improvements while running the check.
  • Keyboard Bindings are now persisted - Over the last few updates/versions we’ve been adding more settings/selections be persisted between sessions. This update adds keyboard shortcuts to the settings that are persisted.

But wait! There's more!
