Hi,

Its been a while since I have been on the forum. I wanted to ask see whom you might suggest  for two needs of ours:

1) we would like to see the Recent Sales Tab in the Customer Form be added to the ShipTo Form as we have some customers with many shiptos and it would be nice to easily look at past history for those specifically.

2) Have a webmethod created where I can easily duplicate a sales order without having to go through the checkout process for a customer.

Currently using VS19.1.  

Many thanks ,

I have a running store and I have transactions related to sales, customers, etc. So I need to know that Is there any way using which I can map that store's data with ConnectedBusiness?
Regarding Plugins integration, what kind of plugin is required? and Is there any documentation available to develop such plugins?

Dear Team CB ,

Under Normal Operations When an Invoice is printed it automatically prints the Accompanying DN for that Invoice which we use as proof of delivery to Customer.

Now, this is fine as long as the customer's Accounts Department Does not have an Issue with Multiple invoices for a Single Purchase Order. ( The Work Flow Would be as follows )

Sales Order ==========> Convereted to Partial invoice(1st Invoice ) =========> System Creates Corresponding BO ======> Customer Invoiced for Full materials(2nd Invoice )  ====> Order Closed .

 But Some of our customers Do not Accept Partial Invoices Against An Order. They Want to Have a Full INvoice and a Full DN  for the Single Purchase Order Issued by them. 

Is there a Memo Or a Document or a work Around in CB where we can have a document signed by the customer for partial Deliveries without Generating Multiple Invoices . and Once all deliveries are complete just Issue them a Single Invoice & DN multiple Deliveries with Proof of Receipt.

Any Thoughts and ideas Much Appreciated.

Is there a way to issue items to a customer on a trial Basis (Client  Approval / Client Check on Site ), let us say that the customer wants to check the item Specs at the installation site or wants to make sure that it is a 100% fit in terms of installation at his/her Property and wants to take the items out of our store. Is there a way to issue a document to acknowledge this.

We usually create a Hand Written Note for this purpose, is there a way to do that in CB .   in Certain software this function is called ( Material Supply for  Approval ) 


My suggestion would be to follow this procedure:

(1) Invoice the customer with future payment due terms (name could be "Material Approval") or the Source field could be set to "Material Approval" or a custom field could be added.  In case they don't bring the material back, they need to pay for it.

(2) Issue an RMA which you can use for tracking if they bring it back or not.  If they bring it back, you can process the RMA and credit.  If they don't bring it back, you can void the RMA.

Najeeb Siddiqui wrote: When editing / adding the Payment terms, the system issues a start date ( Current Date ) can this be changed to a previous date if not why so?


The date you are looking it is the create date of the payment term.  It does not let you change that date.  (My guess is there is/was a future plan to make that date the "effective date" but the plan has not been implemented yet)

Najeeb Siddiqui wrote: What do we need to do to upgrade the payment terms of existing customers from let's say 45Days to 30 days? I have added a couple of different payment terms but they are not shown in the individual customer information ... only the ones which were there when the customer was created are shown in the drop-down menu .. 


Under Banking / Setup / Payment, there is "term" and "group".  The "Term" is all possible payment terms.  The "group" are groups of payment terms which you can assign to customers.

It seems you added a payment term, but you did not add that payment term to the payment group connected to the customer you are looking it.

Be aware the payment term group setting is under the customer Ship-To setup tab, as each different Ship-To could have a different payment terms group.

POINT 1:
You can have multiple suppliers per item.  In the item, there is a Costing tab.  In that tab, you can list all of the possible suppliers for an item.

POINT 2:
In Supplier preferences, there is an option "Filter items according to suppler".  If you turn this off, on a Purchase Order, the list of items will not be limited to the current supplier.

 What Format would be the best choice, Usually we receive these PO's in PDF format Ranging From 250Kb to 350 KB depending on different factors. My concerns are as follows 
 


I would suggest attaching the file in whatever format you receive it in.  It will take time to convert the format.

Najeeb Siddiqui wrote: Dear CB Community,
1) Can We limit the file sizes to a certain Size so users don't accidentally attach large files?
 


I am not aware of a limit you can set in the CB software.  It would be possible to add a customization to set a limit.

Najeeb Siddiqui wrote: Dear CB Community,
2) Is there a place within CB where I can check my Attached File details and DB Size to check for any irregularities?


You can easiy query SQL server for this information.

Najeeb Siddiqui wrote: Dear CB Community,
4) is there any automated or efficient way of doing this?


Yes.  We can schedule a SQL query to email you when (a) there is an attachment over a certain size (b) your attachments grow in total over a certain size (c) your database grows to a certain size.  We can also purge attachments after a certain period of time to keep the size of your database down.

Najeeb Siddiqui wrote: Dear CB Community,
3) Are there any considerations i need to keep in mind while my users attach files ?


The primary consideration is size.  But if the attachments are important to your business, then I would not worry about the size much.  Disk space is not expensive.  However, (a) if you go over 10GB with the size of your database you can no longer use the free SQL Server Express Edition as it has 10GB limit (b) if you are doing backup to the cloud, it takes longer to backup a larger database.

Is there a community version that has that capability?

Read More...

Hi,

The system will indeed log you out after finishing the wizard. The licensing wizard will prompt to proceed with the registration of your database and some information. Enter your details accordingly as shown. It should continue successfully and there will be no need to register it through DBMC. Also, we are not experiencing some errors in our end. Can you try to log out, close the application, sign in back, and confirm if the error still prompts? If it is, can you send us a screenshot?

We’re eager to receive your prompt feedback on this.

Hi, 

Hope you're off to a great day. 

We understand the modifying your User Roles will be useful in your end. Though, Customizing User Role is not included in The Connected Business Community or Express Edition

Also, it only works with the free Microsoft SQL Express database engine.

Let me know if this has answered your question. Otherwise, please feel free to reach out so we can assist you further. Thank you.

I have just installed Community Edition Version 19.2.7252, created a new company and logged in as admin user. Under the system menu the Customize tab is missing. Has that functionality been removed from this version?  When I use the Demo Company it shows up but not in new company. I have looked for info about editing user roles in this version but can not find anything in knowledgebase, etc. Any info or links to the info would be appreciated.

Thanks for the links and the info, works great now.
