Enhancement

Dates as columns

Key dates such as Release date, Payment Due date, Delivery Order date, and Log date are now available as columns in the Shipment List page.  This will give you a quick look at these important dates so you don’t have to click your way to the Dates screen.

 

To add these dates to the Shipment List as columns use the Definition link, which takes you to the Query Definition page. 

 

As a reminder, in the Query Definition screen, field Shipment Dates is also available to have a quick look at other dates in the form of a dropdown box.

Implement the “Go back to Query” feature

in Import module. 

 

As in the Export module, there is now a button that allows you to go back to the last Shipment List screen without having to click the Back button in your Internet browser for several times, thus saving you time.  After a query is done through the Select Options screen, you can get a number of pages to browse through.  You can get a number of pages from 1 to 50.  If you go to page number 12, and from there select a shipment and browse through the detail pages of that shipment file, you can always return to page number 12 (last Shipment List on screen) directly by clicking on the ‘Shipment List’ icon instead of clicking your way back to it, which could take you several clicks on the Back button of your browser and, perhaps, several minutes.

New ‘Container Dates’ icon. 

A new container dates icon appears now in the Containers screen.  This icon takes you to the Container Dates screen. 

 

The Containers screen now has the standard buttons/icons that appear in the rest of the detail pages of a shipment file.  In previous versions of the software, you found yourself clicking your way back to other detail pages after accessing the Containers screen.  Now you can save that time by just clicking on the icon of the detail page you want to see.
