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.

User Interface Refresh
The User Interface has been redesigned with a focus on making daily tasks more efficient. Navigation is cleaner, the color palette is quieter and more modern.

Favorites
As part of the UI Refresh, My Menu has become Favorites. The functionality has been greatly enhanced allowing a central place to perform your daily activities. Almost any area of the application can be specified as a Favorite by selecting the new star on the top-right of the desktop. This can include reports, alerts and higher-level nodes (to include all of the lower level functions).

Whereas My Menu brought you to the destination location within the application (requiring you to navigate back to My Menu), Favorites brings the information to the right pane directly, allowing you to quickly jump from different steps in your workflow.

Customize Columns of Grid Views
Continuing the UI improvements, you can now customize the columns on almost all of our grid views! This includes displaying additional columns as well as hiding existing columns (certain key fields are required to display).

Easier Row Selection
We couldn’t improve the UI without making it easier to do what you likely do the most often: Select Rows! You can now click or double-click anywhere on the row to select or open it.

Multi-monitor Support
Open a new window in MISys and slide it to a second monitor. Close it. The next time you open it MISys will remember where you left it and open it in that same location. It's a subtle change, but will help reduce precious time spent re-positioning the work space.

Company-specific Background Colors
If you happen to use multiple companies, you can now specify different background colors to distinguish them from each other.

User-specific PO Emails
You can now define user-specific email addresses for overriding what email address POs will use.

Excel Enhancements
While v6.3 did allow for .XLXS import/exports, we’ve enhanced this further by extending it to our “All Company” import/export as well as improving our handling of large datasets.

Gantt Enhancements
We’ve exposed multiple color options for each of our Gantt charts.

Item Cost History Report (MIITEM014) Costing Changes
This report was focused on your costing buckets and if they didn’t exist they wouldn’t display. This has been changed to allow the Item Cost to be used if no cost buckets exist for the items. This may not be good for everyone, so the option of “Only Items with Cost History” will behave similarly to before.

Easier Conversions
MISys Manufacturing can now convert all versions as early as v4.2 to the current version. This is now an automated process as part of the install as well as the Convert/Migrate/Restore functions from MISys Server Administration.
