Manufacturer Field Update
When creating products, we have always allowed you to add a Manufacturer to the product information. It was simply a text field where you could type in the brand name of the product. It didn't really do anything important; it was for reference only. We have made some improvements that make it more useful moving forward:
1. Search and Drop List - The Manufacturer field now behaves as a search field and provides a drop list in order to let you pick from previously-added manufacturer names. If we cannot find the name you are searching for, you have the ability to add one. When you click the drop-list for Manufacturer, you're provided with a search field and a list of names of previously entered companies. If you enter one that's not on the list, you will see the option to save it to the drop list.
2. Product Filter for Manufacturer - We have also added the ability to filter products on the Products list page based on Manufacturer. If you go to Products > Products and click the Filters button in the upper right, you can see that field.
ImprovedRent to Own List Load Speed
Made it so the RTO List page (POS > Rent to Own) loads much faster. This will be noticed especially by those who have a lot of contracts.
Updated the Edit Product page (the page you see when you click to open a product and work with its full details) so that when an existing non-serialized product is changed to a serialized product, a side panel will pop up and require that the product be saved to make that change. Not saving the product at that point and continuing to work with it was causing problems.
Fixed an issue where in rare cases, past serial numbers sold were being overwritten with TBD.
Customer Gender Setting
Fixed an issue so that gender on the customer profile now properly saves. Previously, it was not functioning, so gender could not be set.
Fixed an issue where dates exported to QB were not being properly marked with an * to show they had been exported.
Customer Balances Report
Fixed an issue with the Customer Balances report where if the customer didn't have a name, you had no way of knowing who owed the balance. Now we will populate the email and other information from the customer record, so that you may click on and view their full profile.
Can't Edit Draft Page
Fixed an issue where you could not edit a page that was in a 'draft' state.
