Bugs Squashed 🐛
1. Invoice attachment format errors
Some users reported an issue downloading attachments ending in .yml, .xml., and .doc. We have added these as approved file formats to Purchase Plus.
2. Unable to save a Customers Purchaser Number in Supplier accounts
This has now been resolved. Customer numbers can now be saved under Customers > My Customers.
3. When exporting Self Managed Pricing Catalogue, some products were not displaying the Category/Sub-Category even though it appears within Purchase Plus.
Catalogue exports that had a category/subcategory column were using an outdated method for retrieving the category information. This has been rectified.
4. Importing an Informal Supplier without a Country Code shows as successful, but actually fails.
This has been resolved. The list of acceptable two-letter codes can be found here.
Features Released 🚀
1. Improved menu navigation
The main menu within Purchase Plus has been streamlined to only expose the relevant menu options depending on your user type (Buyer or Supplier). 🎉
Old Menu View - Buyer
New Menu View - Buyer
2. Improved search functionality for consolidated Purchase Orders
Searching for a Purchase Order number that has been consolidated previously returned no results - now it does!
For example, the number 5 alongside the Purchase Orders tab in the screenshot below represents the count of all Purchase Orders related to this requisition in some way. PO169659 and PO169658 were originally on this requisition but were consolidated into PO169662 and PO169663 respectively. These Purchase Orders would not have been shown previously.
Secondly, if the user searches for either PO169659 or PO169658 from the Purchase Orders page it will return the consolidated purchase order instead.
And finally, when looking at the related documents for a Requisition, the user will see all Purchase Orders (even those that were consolidated).
3. Informal Supplier import ABN match
We will no longer use the business number field to try to find an existing Supplier when importing Informal Suppliers. Instead, Purchase Plus will only use the Supplier’s ID or name, and if no matching Supplier is found, a new one is created.
4. Ability to change departments
Previously, the organisation picker link as seen below was unavailable to a user who had chosen a department.
Now, if that user has the parent organisation of the current department in their list of organisations they belong to, the organisation picker will be active again. These users will be able to choose that parent organisation and will not need to log out and log back in again which is the current workaround.
