Overview

From the things we said we would do last month we managed to get the following to beta.

  • New sales reports
  • Print customer name on the POS receipt
  • An integrated process for customer order deposits in the POS.

In addition we managed to get the following from the long term list to the short term list.

Adding mover functions to PO search however is proving harder so this has been moved from the short term list to the long term list.
