Dear Shop Management User,

We are pleased to announce we will begin distribution of our next major version update available soon.

From time to time, it is also necessary to perform an upgrade to our SQL database engine. That will be true of this particular shop management update. This means that this specific update process will take longer than your typical management software patch.

On average, you can expect the update on your host machine to take approximately 20 minutes longer than usual. Please note this and plan accordingly when confirming to install the update. NOTE: Any additional workstation updates should take no longer than you’ve been accustomed to.

This update is the culmination of several months of work and incorporates a number of changes and user-requested process improvements. Here are just a few:

Inventory Attached Item: When attached items to inventory records, an updated search allows finding those parts easily, user can edit existing attached part lines, and adjust quantity.
Change of Vehicle Ownership: Implemented a simplified process; software now includes toolbar icon and a wizard to walk the user through steps
FirstCall catalog: Updated version installed, catalog will now warn user when there are no parts to transfer
Check for Updates: Function now checks if you are on the latest version when requested by user, and if not will prompt to proceed with update
Purchase Order: Comment Line within Purchase Orders will now remember the choice of 'Internal Notes' or 'Note to be included with PO'
Kilometers: Manager can now be configured to treat odometer values as Kilometers. When launching Maintenance, Kilometers will also be used. Kilometer setting in Setup / Screen View
New Spell Checker
> Underlines incorrectly spelled words
> Right click on misspelled words to open a context menu that contains the correct spelling
> Dictionary includes common auto/repair terminology.
> Spell Check to Include Uppercase and add custom words

NAPA ProLink US Catalog: Catalog updated to enable message input after Price Check
Promo Package: Now display price with two decimal places, not four

> Schedule Window now includes a Help button on each screen

> Appointment editor to alert when 'seeing' recommendations
> The Source of the invoice is now maintained in schedule, WIP and order
> Scheduler will now remember what the user Resources/Technicians selected to Show/Hide while in the schedule screen

Good day everyone,

Starting today all users of v7.1.7+ will see our new Active home screen. The screen includes "Bulletins" from Mitchell 1 about Manager SE software. The latest bulletin includes important 7.2 update information. A link in the lower left corner of the screen opens a knowledge-base article containing more information. Once you have upgraded your software, the home screen reverts back to what you normally see, ready for a future bulletin.
