New Release – 16th January 2022

FEATURES: Min/Max order size settings for Production BOMs, Accounting dimensions for classifying transactions, camera scanning mode for WMS and MES apps, and more!

Feature 1: Production BOM Min/Max order size settings

Impact area:

Production module

Introduction:

Previously to this release, new production orders could be created automatically from sale orders without considering if this results in adequate production efficiency. For example, it is not efficient to produce less than 100kg of cheese at a time. When a sale order for 30kg is converted into a production order and executed, production is not efficient. 

With this release, it is now possible to set a minimum and maximum production order sizes for production orders automatically created from sale orders. Sale quantities will be accumulated until the minimum order threshold is reached. Production orders can be created manually disregarding these limits if the user confirms their intention. 

Pre-conditions:

Functionality:

NOTE: Nested orders will be created as per the quantity specified in the parent order, regardless of the nested production BOM min/max settings.

Feature 2: Accounting Dimensions

Introduction:

Accounting dimensions are used to tag transactions with relevant information, allowing for more efficient filtering of financial reports. For example, sales could have accounting dimensions: customer groups, type of sale (wholesale/retail etc), branch and more. With this release, DEAR now allows accounting dimensions to be specified and added to transactions. Please see documentation for full instructions.

Feature 4: Hubspot API V3 full support

Impact area:

Hubspot integration

Introduction:

DEAR’s development team was made aware that the current API integration with HubSpot did not provide an acceptable level of speed and reliability for import/export of sales. With this release, DEAR has now made changes to integrate with version 3 of the HubSpot API which allows making bulk requests for creating/updating/removing entities. This will ensure adequate syncing speed for our customers.
