Manager SE v 6.6.8

Postby Johnny5 » Tue Jul 21, 2015 4:00 pm

The day has come, QA released version 6.6.8 update you can install. Close Manager on all all workstations. The patch must be run at the HOST machine first. Then go to each workstation, and run the same patch. You may download it from http://www.m1faqs.com/fix/SE/6.6.8.exe READ the WHAT'S NEW doc. Amoung other things, this version allows:

Revision tabs for the customer vehicle can now named by double clicking the revision tab text
Can now Pay/Post Counter sale from WIP screen
Part Item Edit dialog now has editable Margin field, setting a value there will update the user entered sale price to create the desired margin
Invoice and Counter Sale screen now include 'Balance-at-a-glance'

Added new setting for checking only for matching part numbers when transferring from a catalog (not enabled by default)
    Find setting at Shop Data -> Default Settings -> 'Check for Substitute part(s) when transferring from catalogs'
    When enabled, transferring parts from a catalog looks for a part# match against inventory, and when multiples are found, the substitute parts dialog is displayed to resolve against inventory.
    When selecting an alternate part that does not have enough on hand qty, two lines items will be created to allow for ordering the remaining qty
    When not enabled, behavior remains as before
Report Changes
    Invoice reports show Hazmat on left or right side depending on Tax as labor/part setting
    Committed parts reports fixed to no longer cause divide by zero error
    Accounting reports standardized with '*** No Cust Name***' for counter sales with no customer
    Accounting reports now handle maximum length of first, last, and/or company name
    Florida Invoice from history will correctly show 'Invoice from history'
    Florida invoice correctly displays balance due when using tire fees
    INV Stock Paper report: Taxes will not be broken out unless there are more than one
    Sales Summary Monthly report fixed to handle large totals
    Low Inventory Report updated to include 'Location' field
    Tech Hours report now calculates average effective hours correctly
    Service Writer Posted Order Report:
      Show Service Writer's effective labor rate
      Sublet no longer included in labor total (has its own column, and shown in total column)
      Report is in landscape
    Wisconsin Invoice Reports:
      New "INV w/o Hrs/Part # (WI)"
      Revision disclaimers included
    Tech Hours Report - fixed issue with formula calculating average effective hours

If the stations seem to be "stuck" downloading for a long period of time, close them down and then right-click the desktop icon for Manager and chose Run As Administrator.

It's the host that is saying that JD.

I actually cancelled out & it installed.

I'm really liking the new update!!!

I did this update first thing this morning. It took me about 30-45 minutes to do 5 computers. The host machine took the longest. probably 15 minutes. the rest were fast. I have to say I love this update. So many very cool features. I love the labeling of revision tabs and the parts margin box that can be edited and it updates the sell price. I'm still finding things to. Great job John and crew. :D

What's really cool is when you sell those labeled revisions, the labels carry to the sell window.

Sadly since we don't transfer the revisions anymore because they automatically now go to an RO, won't get to enjoy that feature.....

But so far LOVE, LOVE most of the other ones. Especially being able to see when the vehicle was last in on the vehicle screen.

Sorry, NOT sorry Rich.....stay late & update :mrgreen:

You would probably like the 'Balance-at-a-glance' feature, on the order screen you now see what payments the customer may have made and the balance due on the order :) Did we also mention you might also like the new F4 History Screen ;)

What i would also like is for us to not be one week behind. I love the business, but its getting old...."i dropped my car off there last thursday (with no appointment) and you still havent gotten to it?" :shock: Our next appointment is August 3rd.

I will be sure to love the new update. If i ever get the time to do it.....

I hear you on this one....I dread most Mondays, because we will have 3 - 4 cars in the lot that got dumped off over the weekend without an appointment and then they want it worked in right away...even though the rest of the week is booked solid. However better to be this way then not have enough work!!

My boss is wondering if this update will install on it's own or will we need to use the link above.... just wondering how the process is going to work...

I personally love that we can manually do the update ourselves... he is hesitate to pull the trigger....

Thanks. ARS
