Datasets for Warehouses

Adds support for using Datasets with Warehouses. Datasets for Warehouses is part of the Product Inventory Advanced Tools Bundle. This feature allows the warehouse display to be segregated so different users can see only specific warehouses. A warehouse can be assigned to a data set (Data Right) and that Data Right applied to specific Customer Sites, Accounts, or Customers/Contacts. if a warehouse is not assigned to a specific Data Set(Data Right) it will show to all users. If a warehouse is assigned to a data set only users with the corresponding Data Right assigned will see the specific warehouse.

This feature has an Application/Customer Feature to turn on this segregation on the sitefront and separate Workspace/Worker Features to allow users to create/assign these datasets/Data Rights in the worker portal.

Products Invoiced/Ordered Require Filter

Adds worker and Application filters to require entering a filter value on Products Invoices and Products Ordered pages. The workspace/Worker feature applies to the worker portal and the application feature applies to users on the customer site(s). When this feature is enabled this requires a user to enter filter information before information will load on the page. This is needed for sites with a large amount of customer data that causes these pages to time out. This applies to the following pages:

Products Ordered (Detail)

Products Ordered (Sum of Qty)

Products Invoiced (Detail)

Products Invoiced (Sum of Qty)

Workspace/Worker Feature

Product Releases Release 2021.R1.5 Proudcts Ordered Invoiced Filter

Application/Customer Feature

Notifications (Currently CIMcloud Employees Only)

The Notification System is used to communicate with CimCloud Employees or Workers that login to the Worker Portal. It uses Data Exceptions (DERP) for it’s data structure and in some cases to create the “Notification” records. These notifications will only show in the worker portal in a “right rail”. In this phase, the notifications will only show for CimCloud employees with an option, GLOBAL_SHOW_EXCEPTIONS, to enable for all Workers.

Potential Compatibility Issue

The notifications window occupies the same location as the CRM Inbox so using both may cause issues. For now, the notifications will take precedence and display if both are enabled.
