Kernel (Core) Software

Improved Usability of Monitors

Available to axis diplomat 2018 Software Assurance customers

Release Date: 27/12/2019

A significant improvement to the usability of monitors has been released. The periodic refresh of the list of items is now done in the background, meaning that it is still possible to interact with the items shown during the process. The only indication that the monitor is refreshing is a change to the status shown below the tab title and, in general, the user will be unaware that this is happening.

The ability to continue using the monitor whilst it is refreshing will be particularly useful when using monitors that are listing a large amount of data or for those using monitors across a network, where reloading the data can take noticeably longer than when running in a 'thin client' environment.

When not refreshing, the status line indicates the time that the last refresh occurred, giving an indication of how fresh the data shown is.

Allow Deletion of Customer Contacts

Available to axis diplomat 2018 Software Assurance customers

Release Date: 02/01/2020

It is now possible to permanently delete unused Customer Account Contacts rather than mark them as left.

Purchase Order Due Dates

Available to axis diplomat 2018 Software Assurance customers with the Purchase Order Acknowledged Receipt Date module

Purchase Requirements and Back-to-Back Orders

Available to axis diplomat 2018 Software Assurance customers with the Back to Back Ordering module

Release Date: 02/12/2019

The function Create Requirements from Stock File has been extended to allow back-to-back orders to be ignored when calculating On Order quantities.

When this option is selected, back-to-back purchase orders, sales orders and any associated receipts are excluded. This helps to avoid situations where , for example, stock destined for a specific order is included in the calculated On Order quantity because the purchase order falls within the selected date range but the sales order does not.

Available to all axis diplomat 2016 customers with the Bill of Materials module

Warehouse Management

Improved performance when printing Delivery Notes

Available to axis diplomat 2018 Software Assurance customers with the Despatch & Delivery Management module

Release Date: 30/12/2019

Production of Delivery Notes as part of the Consignment process is now handled by a background process. By eliminating the need to reload the function and process the document templates each time a Delivery Note is generated, much of the overhead of document production is eliminated.

In tests, some users have reported that the time taken to generate a Delivery Note during Consignment is reduced to just 5% of the time previously taken. The actual time saving will vary from system to system but should, for all users, provide a significant improvement. Those with more complex templates, involving multiple document variants, will benefit even more.
