The past couple months we have made a ton of powerful improvements to Stitch including our reporting tooland inventory accounting information. While we've been making these updates, we've been listening to your requests and are happy to announce we were able to accomodate almost all of them in our latest release! This will be a 2 part blog post about some of the features we've launched this weekend. In the next month or so, we will add even more. As always, if there is something you're interested in, please don't hesitate to call or email us anytime.
New Settings and Customization Options for Orders, Invoices, and Packing Slips
When you visit the admin area for order, invoice, and packing slip settings there are many more options.This post will cover most of the customization and the follow on post will go over some of the new features added, as well as product description customization.
Products sort order
The first one is for products sort order in orders, invoices, and packing slips. The original software only allows for one method where all products are automatically sorted alphabetically by line and then by your defined method within each line. That option still exists but now there is a second option that allows you to sort the products in the order you added them.
One of the biggest requests we've gotten is the ability to customize which product IDs are displayed in orders and the pdf exports of invoices and packing slips. It is now fully customizable! Simply check the IDs you want to be displayed and uncheck the ones you don't. This is perfect for businesses that have many IDs for each product based on how you buy and sell it.
Invoices and Packing Slips not only contain important order information, but also serve as representations of your businesses. We now allow you to not only choose where your logo is displayed but also give four different font options. We've started with Arial, Helvetica, Courier, and Times New Roman and will add more in the future.
The titles on the additional sections that show up on every invoice and packing slip export are now fully customizable.
Many of our customers that sell through wholesale and distribution channels expressed that ship and cancel dates are an important part of their businesses. Often stores will set a requirement when goods have to arrive or they can cancel their order and get a full refund. This is very important for businesses to keep track of so they always make sure they deliver their orders on time and maximize their profits from each production run.
In the settings area there is a place to activate Ship and Cancel Dates. Once they are activated new tabs will show up in the dashboard as well as additional filters on the orders page so you always know what you need to take action on. In addition to activating these settings you have the ability to customize how much lead time you want to be alerted for orders that have not shipped. For instance, if you set this to 2 weeks for your ship date alert, Stitch will start showing alerts within 2 weeks of the approaching ship date you promised your customer. You can also customize this setting independently for the cancel date as well.
Once activated, the ship and cancel dates will appear in the order builder on the top left where you enter the order date and PO numbers.
This sums up some of the new customization additions we've made. Look to the follow on post about the additional featues we just added. We hope you're just as excited about them as we are!
