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:

 A quick reinstall is required:

 [Early access] Amazon integration:

Handle logistics through Amazon, and inventory through inFlow

Amazon is our second e-commerce integration for pulling sales into inFlow, and it’s also our first early access feature. We’ve been testing this one for a while and wanted to get it into users’ hands as soon as possible, but please note that you might experience a few hiccups along the way. We’ll make sure to update this page when Amazon hits final release.

In the meantime, you can check out our Amazon blog post for more details.

General improvements:

  • The drop-down lists for setting home currency and taxing method can no longer be changed by the scroll wheel (which makes it harder to change them by accident)

  • The spacing for credit card drop-downs (like country selection) is now fixed

Issues we’ve fixed:

Team Member Tracking: 


inFlow Cloud has always had Versions for checking on changes that different users have made to records. Versions show how many times a product or order has been saved, which team member made the changes, and when that happened. The new Team Member Tracking report builds on the concept of Versions and lets inFlow administrators see what the team has been up to.

You can generate reports for one or more team members to see which sales orders and products they’ve changed in a given time period — handy for internal audits or tracking team performance. If you’d like to try this feature out for yourself, please see our Team Member Tracking support article.

General improvements:

  • inFlow admins can now reset the inFlow Cloud database (this previously required assistance from our support team) 
  • inFlow admins can now reset and import from an inFlow On-Premise backup  (this previously required assistance from our support team)

Pull sales orders from Shopify: 

This is a feature we’ve been extra excited to release. If you run an e-commerce shop with Shopify, you can now pull new orders straight into inFlow Cloud, automatically. All it takes is a few quick setup steps from the Integrations page of our web app.

But wait, there’s more! In a first for any version of inFlow, you can now pull from multiple Shopify stores to a single inFlow Cloud account. So for the industrious among you with Shopify stores for multiple countries, you can now view all of those sales orders without ever leaving inFlow.

For more information, check out our Shopify sync blog post.

Edit customers in the web app: 

Product edit led the way for our first major feature for the inFlow Cloud web app, and now customer edit is here. If you visit app.inflowinventory.com today you’ll be treated to a new green icon along the left side. Select that and you’ll find a familiar interface for creating new customers or editing existing ones.

Want to see what else changed? Check out our customer edit blog post.

General improvements:
