The context menu option in the Debt Management screen Generate Statements > Update Comm Log "statement sent"' functionality has been modified to exclude customers where Exclude Statement run is ticked against their company record.

019131: Implement an option to change the default POSTCODE matching behaviour

Under development 018367: Modify Sales Invoice Manager Rules Postcode matching to match whole Postcode the postcode matching was modified to be an exact match, which results in part postcode matches for courier bandings and delivery rates being applied erroneously. To help solve this the new development [ Terms Enforcement ] dialog another column has been added for "Allow Partial Postcodes" so that the specified postcodes don't have to be fully matched. This defaults to off.

019128: Improve error messages within Khaos Control

When using warehouse control all sales orders must have a picking ticket generated for them. If a sales order is issued and a picking ticket hasn't been generated then the following error message will be displayed "You haven't picked this item/order from a location, please pick the order and try again" and the user will have to create a pick ticket using the the 'Order Stage Reports' button is found towards the top left of the Sales Invoice manager screen.

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 <code\>[ Sales invoice Manager ]</code> 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.

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

X0001AA1C: #7959 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.

Coming Soon

The following improvements to the system will be coming soon; the version is yet to be determined.
