Release Notes for November 2020

Enhancements (Cog_High_Green_Touchup.png) and fixes (Bug_High_Yellow_Touchup_Darker.png) released in November 2020

Logical flow from 'Choose Carrier' to 'Configure Carrier'.

When you add a new carrier or subscribe to any new services for that carrier in Setup > Choose Carriers & Services, and click Save changes, you are now automatically taken to the New 'Configure Carriers' screen. Here, the carrier is automatically pre-selected at the top of the screen.

This means that you do not have to keep going back and selecting Configure Carriers in Setup.

Delivery Manager

New 'Configure Carriers' screen.

The new Configure Carriers screen has been redesigned to help you work through the configuration of services more easily and logically. The 'Depots' button has been renamed 'Manage contracts' and moved to the far left so that it is more of a primary focus:


If you have just added a new carrier or services, then the carrier is pre-selected at the top of the screen, followed by any added carrier services under Services at the bottom of the screen.

Warning triangles are displayed to tell you exactly what information needs to be supplied for each carrier and service. You should start by linking your warehouses via the Manage contracts (formerly, Depots) button.

For more information, refer to ???.


The above two enhancements form part of a larger initiative intended to make the Delivery Manager UI more intuitive.
