We have increased the available Popular Category spots for your Home Page from 4x Categories to 8x Categories giving you more choice on the Categories you would like to encourage your customers to review.

Screen_Shot_2022-08-22_at_4.44.15_PM.png

Information Pop-ups will appear when you hover your mouse over the tile ensuring your customer will always be able to read the full name of your category

 

Reports - Stock Movement Enquiry - New version.

A new version of the Stock Movement Enquiry report has been released. This new version utilises the Business Intelligence data to improve response times for generating this report.

With this new version, we also added a new Product Group filter.

Monday 1 August

Send PO Cost Date - Xero

The cost date entered in Unleashed will now be sent to Xero.
As a result of this, if that date differs from the supplier invoice date in the PO, a separate bill will now be created and exported to Xero for the purchase costs. 

Previously, regardless of what the cost date was set, when the order was completed or receipted in Unleashed, the date sent to Xero for the costs reflected the supplier invoice date and would therefore be included in the same bill.

To ensure only one bill gets passed through to Xero for a PO, you will need to ensure that the cost date is the same as the supplier invoice date.

 

Monday 25 July

Business Intelligence - BI Vision | Inventory

Some of the KPIs on the BI Vision inventory page now also include the number of units these values represents. This is very useful to see the number of units when you select a specific product or product group.

Select a Product from the Product dimension at the bottom of the page, now you can see the SOH value of this product and the number of units you have for this product.

Quantities are also available on the following KPIs: Allocated stock value; Available stock value; Open Purchase Order value and Backorders value.

With the new 'sticky' KPIs you can scroll down to the bottom of the page and select any other product or Product Group to see the value and number of units in these KPIs, adding so much more Insights to the page.

Business Intelligence - BI Vision | Sales - "FreeCredits"

On the BI Vision Sale page, you will find a dimension showing your Sales Revenue measures per Transaction Type. In the past, all credits were grouped under one label. With the latest improvement, we now have split this group into FreeCredits and normal Credits linked to Sales Invoices. Now it is easy to see which customers received free products, just select your timeframe and click on the FreeCredits label in the Chart.

Wednesday 11 May

Business Intelligence - BI Vision | UX improvement - "Sticky" KPIs

We are super excited to announce this great improvement to our BI Vision Pages. Previously when viewing the bottom dimensions of a BI Vision page, the KPI values and filters on the page were invisible to you, you had to scroll to the top of the page to view them or select a different measure.

Now with the latest BI UI we made the KPIs and cross-filters "sticky" so that when you scroll down to the bottom of the page you can still see a smaller version of the KPIs and the filters you applied to the page.

Collapse or expand this panel, just click on the small arrow, always visible when you are at the bottom of the page. Go into Unleashed and try it out, just click here.

Product Unit of Measure changes:

In preparation for multiple units of measure for purchasing, unit of measure has been added to the Products | Purchases tabs.  These are display only and default to the unit of measure recorded against the Product.
There is also a small change to the Product Unit of Measure validation - the Product's unit of measure can remain blank, however, once you assign a unit of measure to a product, you cannot clear the unit back to null.  As a workaround, you can create a unit of measure called "None" or "N/A" and assign that unit to the Product instead.

 

Business Intelligence - Inventory.

A new BI UI page for Inventory has been released and now also offers the ability to make and share a screenshot of the page.

Business Intelligence (BI Vision) - Inventory: New Dimension.

A great new dimension for Product Type has been added to the BI Vision Inventory page. This visualisation will be super handy to filter on specific product types such as components or assembled products. Note: that most products have more than 1 product type so a product could be Assembled, Serialized, and Sellable as in the example below.
mceclip0.png

Business Intelligence (BI) - New BI UI for Sales and Customers 

We are introducing a new and improved BI UI to the Sales and Customers BI pages. Over the next few months, we will also replace the BI pages for Inventory, Purchases, and Production.

What has changed?

Context 

Feature 

Additional Notes 

General

Load faster 

87 database requests vs 629 

 

More responsive on smaller screens.

 

 

Screenshot feature 

Easily “print” the full page to .PDF or .PNG files using the Task menu available on Sales, Customers, and Inventory pages. On the PDF document, the heading section includes a URL to take the user directly to the page with cross filters applied. 

 

Preparing the new BI UI pages to allow page customisation.  

After all BI pages have been replaced with the new UI we will enable this feature which will give users the ability to move, hide, show, and resize some tiles/components on BI Vision pages. 

BI Vision only 

Reset Page button

Reset the page instead of refreshing the page, remove all page filters, and show top "number" of record selections. In the old UI some setting was not cleared when you clicked on the clear filters button. 

 

All charts now show x- and y- axis labels. 

This is especially useful when exporting these charts to PNG, SVG or PDF files. 

 

All charts now have dynamic titles to indicate which measure/KPI has been selected at the top of the page. 

This is especially useful when scrolling down to the bottom of the page where the KPIs currently are not visible and when you export these charts to PNG, SVG or PDF files. 

 

Updated default charts for Customers and Products 

The Products and Customers charts on the BI Vision Sales page have been updated to display your top 25 customers or products for the period selected by default – rather than the segmented pentile charts you used to see.  

Using the Task menu you can still view your data per segment although the number of records on these charts are limited to the top 25 records.

If need to view a full list of Products or Customers for these segmented views you can select the segment and use the export to CSV (all) feature which will export all records for the segment selected. 

BI Foundation 

The Foundation timeline charts now have a "more options" Task menu, allowing users to Export to PNG, SVG, PDF, and CSV 

This will be available on all Foundation timeline charts to allow users to use these visualisations in presentations and export the data points into a CSV file. 

BI Vision Sales 

The Sales Channel pie chart has been replaced with a horizontal bar chart. 

Pie charts did not handle negative values at all and with the new Transaction Type dimension added, credits are visible as negative values. 

 

NEW dimensions added for Sales Groups, Warehouses, and Transaction Types 

Transaction Type dimension will allow users to filter out any Charges or Credits so that they can have a true invoiced Sales Revenue view. 

BI Vision Customers

Improved Customer Grid view. 

  • The Customer Grid now, where applicable, includes Sales Revenue and the number of Orders for the selected period per Customer. 
  • The grid now displays a counter at the top, indicating the number of customers listed. 
  • Pagination was removed and replaced by a continuous vertical scroll bar.  

 

Improved Export Grid data 

The old grid was limited to only show/export 100,000 records. The new improved grid is unlimited, select "Show All" from the Task menu, this will load all records which can now be exported.
