019597: Delay Invoice Code on channels 2.0 order imports

The Channels 2.0 order import has been modified to respect the option to delay invoice code generation which allows Khaos Control to delay the invoice code generation for orders imported from channels 2.0. This modification means that when orders are imported into Khaos Control it will respect the system value option for delaying invoice code generation.

  • If the delay invoice code option is on and an order is imported then the invoice code will not be generated until it is manually generated from the [ Sales Invoice Manager ] invoicing stage.
  • If the delay invoice code option is off then the invoice code will be generated upon import into Khaos Control.

Note: This option is not enabled by default. Please email Development for more information.

018897: UK Vat EU sales figures Box 6 and Box 8

Optional modifications to ensure Country VAT recorded sales are included in the EU figures making up Box 6 and Box 8 on the UK VAT Return have been made. These figures do not affect the VAT payable figures (box 5), just the statistical figures reported to HMRC about EU Sales.

Note: This option is not enabled by default. Please email Development for more information.

019106: Channels 2.0 | Support Amazon.com

Channels 2.0 now supports Amazon.com allowing sales orders from Amazon.com to be processed in the system.

019598: Channels 2.0 - Implement Delivery Note from Shopify putting it into delivery note/picking note

Notes made against an order will be imported from the Shopify channel and will be displayed in the Delivery Notes of the [ Sales Order | Details | Address ] screen.

019602: Channels 2.0 - Add a new permission to control access to the channels screen

A new permission has been added to the system in [ System Data | User Permissions ] that controls the ability of users to access the [ Channels 2.0 ] area of the system.

019248: Channels 2.0 - Get Stock levels to be sent to channels if a user changes the stock available to a channel

For [ Channels 2.0 ] , stock levels will be sent to channels if a user changes the stock available to the channel. The changes mean that when uploading specified items and uploading all items, the system resends the stock levels for all items that are now associated with the channel.

X0001A92E System Data, Post Code Regions - How to configure for postcodes where the Outward Post Code only contains 1 number

Postcodes can now be filtered to search in area codes only or the full postcode

System Data, Post Code Regions - How to configure for postcodes where the Outward Post Code only contains 1 number. Postcode Regions to allow filtering for Outward Code

Postcode PE31 is included in Courier Banding for PE3

  • We only compare to the first (outer) section of the postcode, i.e. the NG31 part of NG31 7FZ.
  • The Postcodes field can use [A-Z] to represent an alpha character.
  • Limited ranges can be used, e.g. [B-G] will match B and F but not A or Q.
  • The Postcodes field can use [0-9] to represent a numeric digit.
  • Limited ranges can be used, e.g. [3-6] will match 3 and 5 but not 7.
  • You can put these after each other, e.g. [B-G][D-G][1-3] will match DF1. Note that this does not match DF14 (and similar).
  • You can use a % symbol as a wildcard, e.g. NG3% will match NG31, NG3C and NG3.

For Example:

  1. Using the range [1-9] does not include 0, which can be valid in postcodes. Customers should use [0-9] instead, where appropriate.
  2. True regex is not accepted; this instead appears to use T-SQL's character matching, i.e. [0-9][a-z][A-Z].
  3. Please note that this IS case-sensitive, and [a-z] will not match 'A'. Because postcodes appear to be forced to uppercase when saving, it is recommended to use [A-Z] for character matching.

In System Data, Post Code regions, the customer needs to specify a region where the Outward postcode only has one number e.g. NG1 but this will return NG13 as well. How can it be configured for just NG1.

019490: EPOS: Changes to EPOS Customer email address

The EPOS screen will now show the customer's primary Invoice contact email address below the customer's name, the user can also update the Invoice Contact email address.

019753 - BO/PO Dropship change

BO/PO functionality has been changed so that when a BO/PO is raised from a sales order import or manually through a sales order being generated on the system, the BO/PO dropship orders which are generated will track back to the original sales order and check if there is an organisation set against the delivery address. The system will use that address as the company field on the dropship purchase order.

019613: Enforce Sales Order Multiple

The functionality of 'enforce sales order multiple' in [ System Data | Company Classes ] has been changed so that the default qty of the item added to the sales order is the sales multiple defined against the stock item when that item is added to a sales order for that company class. However, this can be overwritten and sales operatives can go under or over this amount and do not need to abide by the sales order multiple. In a sales order, the sales multiple column will be blue if the QTY does not match the sales multiple and is not a factor of the sales multiple.

Note: This option is not enabled by default. Please email Development for more information.

019551 - Add quotes to the branding required options

The Branding Required drop-down in [ System Values | Sales | Order Display | Required Fields ] now has the following options:

  • Do Not Require Branding
  • Sales Orders Only
  • Sales Orders and Quotations
  • Sales Orders, Quotations and Proformas
  • Sales Orders, Quotations, Proformas and Credit Notes

019614: Supplier Qty Breaks dialog from purchase order context menu

Khaos Control has been modified so that users will be able to view the supplier qty breaks from a new context menu option in the purchase order screen, available from the right-click of the purchase order items. This gives the user viability of all the quantity price breaks

019899: Modify the packer tracker to include/exclude Future and Hold stages

The Packer Tracker dialog is used to audit the movement of Sales Orders within the Sales Invoice Manager. It is accessed from the Other Actions Menu and has been improved so the user can include or exclude any Future and Hold stages and include or exclude stock controlled items from being displayed.

Coming Soon
