HEADLINE ENHANCEMENTS

The following headline enhancements have been implemented in SendPro Enterprise:

View App. Improvements to tax charge calculations and display.

Affects all SendPro Enterprise users.

Details of tax charges applied to shipments are now displayed in the View App’s Charges tab. In addition, the logic used for rate markup and markdown calculations has been altered to improve handling of decimals. Previously, values would be stored as they were originally calculated to more than two decimal places. Now, calculated values will automatically be rounded up to the nearest cent, ensuring that charges are displayed correctly in the View App to two decimal places.

Cartonization. Added new element to cartonize request.

Affects all SendPro Enterprise users.

A new boolean element has been added to the cartonize request, ItemInitialOrientationPreferred, allowing all possible orientation combinations to be attempted when cartonizing. The element can be mapped, where appropriate, to SendPro Enterprise Apps; in the event that no mapping is created the element is enabled by default.

Cartonization. Carton configuration IDs now passed in requests.

Affects all SendPro Enterprise users.

A refId element has been added to the boxTypes node of cartonization requests, allowing carton configuration IDs to be passed in requests.

HubCapp. Improved connectivity display.

Affects all SendPro Enterprise users.

The WEIGH button in product Apps now automatically enables and disables with HubCapp connectivity status changes.

Outputs. Added ECCN/EAR99 element to international documents.

Affects all SendPro Enterprise users.

To align with US governmental guidelines, shipments destined to China, Russia or Venezuela now include an ECCN or EAR99 for each line item on the Commercial Invoice or a Shipper’s Letter of Instruction. Note that:

  • ECCN: An Export Control Classification Number used to classify goods, technology and software to determine whether an export license is required.
  • EAR99: Indicates that a particular item is subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), but not listed with a specific ECCN on the Commercial Control List (CCL).

OTHER CHANGES

The following other changes have been implemented in SendPro Enterprise:

Reports. New Transaction Account Summary report.

Affects all SendPro Enterprise users.

A new report has been added to SendPro Enterprise, Transaction Account Summary - by Cost Center Code. The new report is based on the existing Transactions by Account Summary report, but instead groups shipments based on Cost Center Code rather than Cost Center Name. This additional report ensures that users with several cost centers assigned the same name can correctly distinguish the shipments processed with each.

Batch Tracking. Updated carrier processing.

Affects all SendPro Enterprise users.

The logic used to determine which packages require tracking requests has been updated to remove packages for carriers that do not support tracking. This fix corrects issues whereby the Batch Tracking task included shipments which were not trackable.

Banyan. Updated treatment of units of measure.

Affects all SendPro Enterprise users.

An issue has been resolved whereby units of measure entered in lowercase were not accepted when operating with Banyan. Now, lowercase values are converted to uppercase and passed as expected in requests.

Note that the checkbox is only shown if operating with the App setting Enable Consolidated Shipping set to True.

Shipment Notifier. Tracking Urls now presented as expected.

Affects all SendPro Enterprise users.

Tracking Urls are now generated correctly in the Shipment Notifier email template. This was caused by issues translating the ShipmentAccountNumber, ExternalCarrierIdentifier, ShippingKey, ShippingTrackingNumber, Identifier and Password variables.

Postal Meter snippet. Added missing carrier detail.

Affects all SendPro Enterprise users.

Resolved an issue whereby missing detail in the Postal Meter snippet caused batch shipments to fail when operating with the carrier Canada Post. Shipping with Canadian meters now functions as expected.

Shipping Apps. Corrected treatment of return contacts.

Affects all SendPro Enterprise users.

Affects all SendPro Enterprise users.

The Minimum Age password setting has been updated to allow a user to change a password, previously set by an Administrator, before the minimum age defined in the setting has expired. However, they may only do so once. Following this, the password cannot be changed until the age limit has expired or it is reset by an Administrator. In addition, all password changes made by Administrators are now stored in the user’s password records and form part of the password history and age checks associated with the user.
