CP SQL 8.4 New Features – Kits/Bills of Material Option
Prompting for grid cells in kits.
CounterPoint can now prompt users to choose the cell (e.g., Red/XL) for each gridded kit component automatically at the time of the sale, which means that users no longer have to manually change the default cell for each gridded kit component. This feature streamlines the process of selling kits, saves time at the register, and requires fewer steps for the users to remember.
Prompting for serial numbers in tag-along kits.
Previously, when a user sold a tag-along kit that included a serialized component, the user was not prompted to specify the serial number for that component, requiring the user to specify the serial number manually. This later caused posting failures, until the issue was manually addressed. In this new version, CounterPoint prompts the user to specify the serial number for each serialized component automatically at the time of the sale, ensuring that serialized components are assigned the necessary serial numbers.
Serialized items in miscellaneous kits.
Previously, serialized items could not be components of miscellaneous kits. This restriction has been removed from this version, allowing you to include Sometimes Serialized and Always Serialized items in miscellaneous kit definitions. This feature makes miscellaneous kits more versatile, allowing merchants to more easily bundle multiple serialized items with other items.
When a user sells a miscellaneous kit that includes a serialized component, the user is prompted to specify the serial number for that component automatically, ensuring that serial numbers are assigned to all serialized components. If the item is Always Serialized, the user cannot by-pass this prompt without first specifying a valid serial number. Again, this ensures that the serial numbers are properly applied during the transaction, so there won’t be issue later at point of transaction posting.
