It's the Little Things…

September 12, 2014 Inventory, Sales Luke

It’s been just over a week since we released Version 2.11 and the majority of you have already upgraded. If you haven’t yet, make plans to upgrade soon (it only takes a few minutes). When you do, you’ll be able to start enjoying these small changes that have a big impact in Ascend.

Save Sales Invoices to PDF
In Version 2.10, we introduced PDF attachments for emailed receipts. This was a welcome change, but you still had to email yourself if you wanted a PDF version of a sales receipt. In Version 2.11, you can save invoices directly to your computer. It’s simple. When you’re in a sale, click the “Preview” button on the on the toolbar to view the receipt. From there, click the “Save” button and choose the location where you want to save the file.

See Your Scanned Inventory Sections
Last year, we overhauled our inventory process. A lot of steps were removed and discrepancies can now all be resolved in one screen. In version 2.11, you’ll find a “Scan File” column to the Reconcile Inventory screen. Now, when you’re performing an inventory count, you’ll be able to view the section(s) in which an item was scanned. This will help you identify re-scans that need to take place if a particular section seems to be the source of several of your discrepancies.

But, Wait! There’s more…
We’ve added a few small touches to help you better communicate with your customers. In the customer record, there’s now a small label icon to print a label for the Billing or Shipping address.

And on the customer panel, you’ll see a birthday cake if your customer’s birthday is within one week of the date you’re ringing up their transaction.

    Congratulations on an excellent version of Ascend. The software is getting better and better by each release. I have a quick suggestion (or maybe I overlooked it): I love the idea of unique outdate (now sectioXX_countYY.txt) files. But wouldn’t it be great that AscendScan manages creating different files by itself, instead of having to return to the computer after every section? Maybe have it prompt which section you want to scan and then, if it already exists, prompt if you want to add or replace the section info. Thank you all for the great work! Cheers
