Release Notes v2.13.0-beta.1

  • New feature: Internal Part Number generator. Internal part numbers can now be automatically generated. The part number consists of a simple counter: every time a new part number is generated, the counter is incremented. You can also define multiple Series. Each Series keeps its own counter and add a prefix to the generated part number. If enabled, internal part numbers are generated whenever manually creating parts, bulk importing parts, or creating parts through the API.

  • New feature: Obsolete Inventory. You can now change the status of available inventory, from available to obsolete (and vice-versa). The status can be changed by simply editing selected inventory (right-click and Edit inventory...). Obsolete inventory is inventory that's no longer usable but which you still want to keep track of. Obsolete inventory is ignored for all purposes other than tracking it and for calculating a part's Worth.

  • Purchasing: a Rev column has been added which allows you to list revisioned inventory to be purchased (not necessarily for in-house parts)

  • When importing a BOM, a Unit of Measure column might be mapped. If mapped, it is used to determine the unit of measure in case it's not included in the value mapped in Qty. This should be useful when the software you use to generate a BOM doesn't include the unit of measure along with the quantity.

  • Defining depth when importing tree-structured data (e.g. Storage and Labels): a setting was added (Settings - General - Import) which allows to define a character that should be used to denote depth. This way you can have names that include a dash -, the character previously used (and still used by default) to denote depth in tree-structured data.

  • Barcodes: a setting was added (Settings - Barcodes) which allows the description on a detailed barcode label to wrap either at a character or word.

  • When adding parts and quantities into a purchase order from a purchase list, the unit of measure used in the purchase order will match the one from the selected quote. For example: if a purchase list indicates 150 screws to be purchased and you selected a quote with pricing for a "Box-of-100", you'd need to buy 2 "Box-of-100", being that quantity and unit of measure the ones to be listed in the purchase order.

  • Calendar: events can be drag-and-dropped in order to change its date
