Updates to inFlow Cloud

We’re constantly improving the inFlow Cloud experience and we generally update the system on Tuesday evenings (EST). If we expect any downtime, we’ll update our status page to let you know.

The good news is your subscription includes all of the updates and fixes we release. Here’s how to make sure you’re in the latest and greatest version of inFlow Cloud:

 Stock Transfer Report

There’s a new report in town. It’s called the Stock Transfer Report and it helps you evaluate the total value (based on cost) of the items in each stock transfer. You’ll find it in the Inventory Reports section of our Windows app. Or in the saloon.

Stuff we’ve fixed:

  •  We’ve removed Unit Cost columns from the work order reports (it didn’t make sense to show a total, that was a mistake).
  •  We fixed a timezone issue for WooCommerce sync that could cause delays in syncing.
  •  Orders will no longer be disabled if inFlow Cloud’s server displays a save error.

February 19, 2019

Stuff we’ve fixed:

  •  The drop-down menu for Carrier now displays properly on purchase orders.

February 13, 2019

General improvements:

  •  You can now import CSV files that use a semicolon instead of a comma (shout out to our customers in Europe!).
  •  You can now change Item Names in bulk via Product Details import.
  •  We’ve added Location as a filter on the Work Order list.
  •  We’ve reorganized the menu in the Web app to mimic the menu in our Windows app for better consistency.
  •   We’ve made multiple improvements to the mobile scanning experience to make it easier to pick up and use. If you use mobile scanning, we’d love to hear what you think!
  •   Scanning an unknown product will now show an option to create a new product

Stuff we’ve fixed:

  •  We’ve optimized our servers to deliver inFlow Cloud updates even faster during releases
  •  Vendor price now properly rounds to five digits (instead of four).
  •  The drop-down menus for Purchasing UoM, Carrier and Taxing Scheme now appear properly in the Web app.

February 5, 2019

General improvements:

  •  We’ve increased the page size in the Online Showroom to show 24 items at once (previously 12).
  •  We’ve added measures to ensure that your customers’ replies to your Showroom emails end up at at your email address. This won’t affect inFlow customers using legacy email settings.

Stuff we’ve fixed:

  •  The drop down menu for Showroom wasn’t activating properly, but it will now.
  •  Amazon orders with more than one taxing scheme now properly sync to inFlow Cloud.
  •  Low stock email notifications now deliver properly, even if you have a large number of items to reorder.
  •  The Pick and Fulfill tabs no longer autofill the quantity when scanning or selecting items.
  •  We fixed a niche error that could occur if you changed quantities in the Return tab of a sales order and then moved to the Restock tab.

January 29, 2019

General improvements:

  •  Before larger updates to the program, inFlow Cloud will not prompt you to save the currently open record so that you don’t lose any changes before major updates. You won’t see this prompt this week, but we’ve put the system in place to be prepared for our next major release.

Stuff we’ve fixed:

  •   We’ve fixed an issue where certain databases had difficulty after unarchiving (i.e., reactivating the account after a period of not using inFlow Cloud).

January 22, 2019

Stuff we’ve fixed:

  •  When saving a report as CSV, Category values will now save as regular text.
  •  We fixed an issue where the wrong tab could be highlighted when viewing a sales order from the Order History screen.
  •  inFlow now respects SpecialTaxRates when importing orders.
  •  We fixed an issue where Showroom orders wouldn’t send if there were too many unique items placed on an order.
  •  Showroom will no longer display negative quantities (zero is the lowest you’ll see).
  •  The UoM drop-down on sales orders now properly responds to mouse clicks.

  Recommended Reorder Point report

It’s important to set reorder points for your product so that you don’t run out of stock too early, and this new report can help you establish a baseline.

We recommend having a few weeks of sales data before you first run it, since it recommends reorder points based on the demand and Lead Time. If you’d like to learn more, check out our brand new support article on the Reorder Point Report.

  Retail mode

Many inFlow customers like to record retail sales within inFlow Cloud for Windows (as if it were a point of sale system). Our sales order interface wasn’t designed with that in mind, but our new Retail mode is.

Retail mode sets a default customer for new sales, combines the pay and fulfill process into one button and helps you automatically print a receipt for your customer.

General improvements:

  •  Sales and purchase orders have a new Email field.
  •  Reports can now be exported straight to CSV format (this preserves the headers and makes it easier to generate pivot tables from the data in Excel)
  •  We’ve added Credit and Balance as columns in the Customer List report

Stuff we’ve fixed:

  • Copying a product will no longer duplicate its barcode (it didn’t make sense to have multiple products with the same barcode).  
  •  Freight now syncs properly from QuickBooks Online back to inFlow Cloud.
  •  The Manage my account page in our web app now shows more than 20 automated invoices.
  • The Save button wasn’t appearing properly while adjusting custom fields or settings. 
  • We’ve fixed a niche issue where an error message would not appear if your credit card payment for inFlow Cloud was declined  
  •   Fixed a layout issue with the Quantity field in Online Showroom
  • Our web app can now toggle Shipping for orders that were created in our Windows app.

  Fulfill and payment options come to the web

We introduced sales orders on the web earlier this year, and we’re excited to announce that you can now fulfill and pay those orders straight from inFlow Cloud for Web.

The Pick, Ship, Return and Restock tabs are all present, so you can now handle sales from start to finish, right from your browser.

We think this update should help to open inFlow Cloud up to sales and warehouse teams that rely heavily on Macs or tablets.

Stuff we’ve fixed:

  • Unsubscribed or locked out accounts should no longer receive any low stock emails from inFlow Cloud
