|Release 5.9 includes the ability for community admins and buyers to close orders and blanket orders. We've also made some minor tweaks to the search screen in preparation for further search screen improvements to come. For our customers in Australasia, suppliers will now be required to attach their original invoice when they create a new invoice in the system.|
Release 5.9 is available for review in Demo this week and will be released to production on the 29th of May.
Closing Orders and Close Order Integration
In the past, customers who do not have receiving integration have not had the ability to close an order to communicate to their finance system that the order is complete and any remaining balance can be released. To assist with this, we have added an integration message for the header level status to close or reopen an order, and we've extended the ability to close an order to a community admin or buyer.
We have also added the ability to close blanket orders without the need to bring the end date forward. Closing the blanket order means no further orders or invoices can be processed against it.
- We have updated the requisition approval history tab to show escalations.
- We have removed the notification to suppliers noting their quote expiration as it was causing confusion.
- The search results screen has been tweaked to make the supplier name more prominent.
- In Australia and New Zealand we have made it mandatory for suppliers to attach their original invoice document when submitting invoices through the system.
We are finalizing our invoice extraction functionality and we continue to work on mobile responsive pages to make receiving and approving easier on a mobile device. We are also charting future development and product enhancements based on feedback from customers and from attendees at the Unimarket NOW Users Conference.
