Bug Fixes

379

We fixed an issue when a user selects one or many items from the Stock Item related list on Warehouse and they click Generate Transfer Orders, it walks through a couple screens but the last screen is blank and no record(s) are created.

EAM

Bug Fixes

1713

We fixed an issue where when generating a Transfer In order, the generated transfer order line doesn’t have the reference to the correct stock item.

With this release, the stock is referenced in the warehouse and not the related warehouse. The inventory of the destination stock on hand quantity updates correctly once the full transfer cycle is complete.

1645

We fixed an issue where when syncing a labor task after assigning the user/contact information with labor rates, a null value causes a null exception trigger error and the task doesn’t sync to the Back Office.

Version 1.507 (6/13/23)

Bug Fixes

Issue # Summary

673

We fixed an issue in EAM where a new PM schedule only marked as Event Based PM Schedule where the status is Active can’t be saved. An error is returned stating the PM Schedule must be meter or calendar based.

The validation rule is updated to account for an Event Based PM Schedule and they can be successfully saved with an active status.

1405

We fixed an issue in Schedule & Dispatch where a Price Book Item can’t be added to a scheduled contact.

1567

We fixed an issue in EAM when a stock item on order quantity is negative after the PO Stock Receipt is generated.

Version 1.501 (3/9/23)

Enhancements

Issue # Summary

272

We made an enhancement to Job Schedule and Dispatch where the default label can be configured.

With this release, the Display_Text fieldset on the respective object can override the display value for the respective object (Job, Equipment, Contact, Price Book Item, etc.). If the user has used custom text, those values are shown.

For more information, see Key Schedule & Dispatch Features.

919

If there are multiple matches based on catalog item and they exist in the source warehouse, we have enhanced the user’s ability to select the correct stock item.

Bug Fixes

Issue # Summary

1201

We fixed an issue with the EquipmentHierarchyLEX Lightning Component not showing any data when the page initially loaded requiring additional refreshes for it to appear.

With this release, the equipment hierarchy loads without having to refresh the page.

Version 1.492 (1/26/23)

Enhancements

Issue # Summary

1133

Some of our customers experienced SOQL limits while writing their own custom code. To solve this, we have refactored our code base using fewer SOQL calls. More custom SOQL calls will be available for them to use.

1251

We added a custom metatype called JSD Display Text with fields for SObject, which is a picklist field, and Display Field, which is a text field.
