New Release – 1st MARCH 2020

New Features

Feature 1: Production Module Improvements (Split Production Orders, New Scheduler Views, Manufacturing Buffer View)

Impact area: DEAR Production Module

Introduction: The Production module is aimed at addressing the needs of the production process. New production features will provide our current customers with powerful, logical manufacturing solutions to add to their inventory solution. Following on from our most recent release, we are continuing to improve the Production module functionality and add features.

Pre-conditions: None.


For more information, see Scheduler and Managing Production Orders.


Feature 2: DEAR B2B Portal Improvements (Sorting Options, Home Page Guest Access, Drag-and-Drop Menu Items)

Impact area: DEAR B2B Integration, DEAR B2B Portal front-end

Introduction: Sorting options are now available for products listed on your DEAR B2B portals, allowing your customers to more easily look for products in your Catalogue. In addition, guests who browse through a DEAR B2B portal do not need to log on anymore before they can view the product catalogue. Menu items in custom menus that have been set up as a horizontal navigation bar can also be dragged and dropped into place, allowing easier rearrangement of menu items.

Pre-conditions: DEAR B2B Licence, new or existing DEAR B2B portal

Functionality: For sorting options, go to Integrations > B2B Portal, click the General tab on a DEAR B2B portal, then navigate to the Sorting Options section.

The Allow Guest Access setting under the General Settings section on the General tab lets anyone, even uninvited customers, to access a portal’s Home page directly without requiring them to log on. Previously, this setting would take guests to the portal’s Login page, where they needed to log on before they could access the Home page. 

To see how the drag-and-drop functionality for custom menu items works, go to the Navigation tab on a portal’s Integration page, set up a horizontal navigation bar using a custom menu, add at least a couple of menu items, then drag an item to another position on the custom menu.

For more information on these features, see Getting Started with DEAR B2B Portal.
