Release Notes August 2022

Notifications System

A new notification system is available.  This will send email reminders to user when percent complete of production units reporting is overdue.  There are two report styles available:  Summary or Detailed.

You can control what jobs are reported by setting a cost center filter, and also setting a reporting threshold for the number of hours overdue and the total estimated hours on the job.  This allows you to filter out small changes and small jobs.

The setting is done by ROLE so one setup can be done for foremen or project managers.

The column HOURS THIS PERIOD has been removed and replace with HOURS SINCE UPDATE.  This field will accumulate hours until the user makes a new entry.  On a new entry this field is set to zero.

Help System Improved

A HELP icon has been added to every screen providing context sensitive help.  So clicking this icon will provide help for the screen you are on.

Percent Scheduled Column

This new column is available on the Summary screen.  
Percent Scheduled = Number of tasks scheduled / Total number of tasks.

Import Filters

There is a new filter on the Company Setup/Data Filters Setup that allows you to include or exclude INACTIVE jobs.
