v1314.1.1304    09/06/2013
1. Added inventory and price upload for ebay
2. Changed ebay SKU match when importing orders to use both ItemID and SKU

v1315             09/20/2013
1. Added the ability to use multiple fields in the default setup*
2. Added the ability to customize subproducts
3. Added 10 additional customization fields, which can be edited as a separate set
4. Added checkbox option to the customization field setup (with new data type field)
5. Added fields to store the number of populated customization fields for each set, and a total
6. Added a panel to show the number of remaining characters when entering a customization
7. Fixed error when updating database

*This is setting up the field default on the customization setup screen.  It still drops down a list of fields like before, and just selecting a single field still works so it is compatible with existing customize setups you may have.  However, you can now combine fields and/or plain text by using brackets around the field names.  So “[Billing First Name] [Billing Last Name]” would show “John Doe”.  You can also use plain text, so “Name: [Billing First Name]” would be “Name: John”.  The field names aren’t required, so you can use it to default to a fixed value.  If it’s a checkbox, using a default value of “True” will check the box by default.

Also, not mentioned specifically in the change notes: the new customize fields were added to the manual standard import (Process Orders screen) so you can import orders from a csv file for example including up to 20 customize fields.

  1. Added various item customization fields, setup screens, and entry screens
  2. Added company to source key screen and sets company in order when selected
Setting up customizations:
  1. Go to the product screen, at the bottom of the first tab is the customize button and a dropdown with a setup button next to it.  Click on the setup button.
  2. Create a new customization by clicking the add button and entering in field names, length, and the default field if applicable.  (The default field will pull information from the customer and/or order when the customization is opened.)
  3. Save the customization and close the forms.  You can now select that customization on the product form.  Do that and save the product.
  4. Go to an order and add the product you just customized.  Then click on the customize button to bring up the customization screen.  (This should probably happen automatically when adding a new item, but get some input from the customer on when the best time to do this is.)  Enter customization data.  Field defaults should already be entered, if the field has a value in the customer/order.
Setting up source key companies:
  1. Open the source key setup screen, on the second tab there is a dropdown to assign the company and a setup button.  This works identically to the operator screen.
  2. Select the source key in the order.  If a company is assigned, the current company will be overwritten.  It does not blank out the company if no company is assigned to that source key, because it may have been set manually or automatically from the operator or another process.
