The main new things in this release are; transfer EDI for group stores, sales history exports for stores that want to do their own reports and a new data migration system that enables support team rather than developers to migrate data from old systems.

Feature additions

  • Group ‘Transfer’ EDI has been added for transfers between group stores. When stock is invoiced out from store A an inwards goods job is automatically created in store B.
  • Sales history export added to enable shops to do their own sales reporting. Backoffice > Reoprts > Monthly Sales
  • New data upload system that means that support staff rather than developers can now load data from old systems into Circle. This frees developers to concentrate on improving the system.
  • Vouchers can now be listed up in the backoffice. Backoffice > Accounts > Show all Vouchers
  • Faster voucher creation in the POS.
  • Extra fields from Tyro eftpos now show in the backoffice on payments
  • Weekly Sales : GST  has been removed from the Total Sales to give you accurate actual sales.
  • Create User Form : to retain general information from the customer. This will lessen repetitive typing for the user if they strike an error.
  • “Update from Bookdata” button changed to to “Update from data feeds” to reflect that there is now a circle feed in addition to the bookdata feed Backoffice > Load Stock. If you subscribe to Bookdata, it will be looked up first and then only go on to the Circle feed if it is not found in Bookdata.
