Description of the Enhancement

MKMS STARK

Millennium Series User Interface

A special MKGM.dup file is included in this upgrade to enable the use of Google Maps® without incurring the map views limitation. Google Map® may now initially display either in the "roadmap" (default) view, or in the "satellite" view, as your Company's Central Station and/or Operations Manager prefers.

For those who want to use this feature, this feature requires the installation of a new Company Setting which may be accomplished by using the dbisql utility to run this script:

INSERT INTO "DBA"."CompanySettings"("Section","SettingName","SettingValue") 

VALUES('Feature','DefaultMapType','roadmap')

To change the default map display to "satellite":

update dba.companysettings set settingvalue = 'satellite' 

where settingname = 'DefaultMapType'

Service Tracking System

Technician Performance (New Grid)

An Email (the data in the Grid) capability has been added to the Technician Performance (New Grid).  This option will appear on the Ribbon Menu at the top of that Report Form as an Icon.

Service Tracking System

Company Settings

Work Order

Suppress WO Warnings - A new SuppressWOWarning option in Company Settings has been created to allow your Company to suppress the Work Order Warning dialog:

By default, the SuppressWOWarnings option is set to False ("F").

Setting this SuppressWOWarnings option to True ("T") will suppress the Pop-Up Warning Dialog which displays a Warning Message when the Subscriber has a pending Work Order, a Balance that is Past Due, and/or is out of Warranty (or has a Service Contract which has expired) when a new Work Order is started.

Service Tracking System

Company Options

Default Warranty Terms - By default, the Value of the new DefaultWarrantyTerms option in Company Settings will be set to 12.

This Value represents the number of Months after the Sale Date entered in the Service Info section of the Edit View of the Subscribers Form when the installation's Warranty Ends.

The Value entered here will automatically populate that Warranty Ends field (i.e., Sales Date + Value in months = Warranty Date).

This Value may be changed, based on your individual Company's Warranty Policy.

 

Default Warranty WO Settings - By default, the new DefaultWarrantyWOSettings option in Company Settings is set to False ("F") .

Setting the DefaultWarrantyWOSettings option to True ("T") will set the Non Billable and Exclude Invoice Labor Check boxes on a new Work Order Form to match the settings in the Service Contract record associated with (assigned to) the current Subscriber - if that Subscriber is still under Warranty (i.e., Warranty Ends Date > Today).

 

Check Date Requested After Sub Sale Date - By default, the CheckDateRequestedAfterSubSaleDate option is set to True ("T")

When set to True ("T"), the program will confirm that the Requested On Date entered on a Work Order is on or after the Sale Date entered in the Service section of the Subscriber Edit View.

When set to False ("F"), the program will not make that comparison.

Service Tracking System

Service Contracts

The revised Service Contracts Form now has two additonal fields:

1.Exclude Invoice Labor - Check the box when Work Order Labor Charges should not be billed to a Subscriber with this type of Service Contract.

2.Non Billable - Check the box when Work Order Charges should never be billed to a Subscriber with this type of Service Contract.

Setting the DefaultWarrantyWOSettings option to True ("T") in the Company Settings Form will set the Non Billable and Exclude Invoice Labor Check boxes on a new Work Order Form to match the settings in the Service Contract record associated with (i.e., assigned to) the current Subscriber - if that Subscriber is still under Warranty (i.e., Warranty Ends Date is greater than Today).

Service Tracking System

Work Orders

Inventory/Materials

Completing a Work Order

 

The Work Orders Form has been substantially changed and new features have been added.

When a new Work Order is created, the "Non Billable" and "Exclude Invoice Labor" fields will be set based on the Service Contract assigned to that Subscriber only if the DefaultWarrantyWOSettings option is set to True ("T") in the Company Settings Form and Subscriber is still under warranty (i.e., Warranty End Date >= Today).

 

Department - Use the new Drop-Down Selection List provided to Choose the Department that should be charged for the Inventory/Materials expenses used to complete this Work Order.

oUse the Drop-Down Selection List provided to Choose the Department that should be charged for the Inventory/Materials expenses used to complete this Work Order.

oIf a Department has been assigned when the Work Order was created, it will become the default Department, and will be inserted automatically when the Inventory/Materials expense record is added.

oWhen a Work Order is Invoiced, the Department assigned on the Work Order will be Department assigned to each Detail Line Item on that Invoice.

 

The User may Select which Columns of data will be included in the List (Grid) by Clicking the Asterisk (*) at the top left of the List's Header to display a list of all available Columns (Header Names).  The User may Check the desired Header (column) Names (all will be Checked initially), or hide columns by removing the Check.

c)If the Quantity of any item in the Parts List tab becomes less than or equal to zero, the item will be deleted from the Parts List.

The Pending Work Orders List on the Technician Scheduling Form has been substantially revised, and so will now function as a true Grid.

The new Identifier column in the Pending Work Orders List (Grid) identifies each Work Order record as being either for a Subscriber or a Prospect

Therefore, Grouping the Pending Work Orders List by Identifier enables the User to quickly identify which Work Orders are for a Subscriber versus a Prospect.

See the Pending Work Orders List chapter and the "Grouping the Grid Data" discussion in the Grids & Lists chapter for more information about this Grouping capability.

 

The Pending Work Orders list also has a new Use Tool Tips? option which turns on/off the Work Order Detail pop-up.

b)When that pop-up feature is not wanted, removing the Check from the Use Tool Tips? option disables this feature.

3.The Transfer option is only available when Inventory Items have already been added to the Parts List tab.

Material/Inventory

1.You are now able to insert Negative Quantities for Inventory and/or Non-Inventory items in Job Costing on the Item List sub-tab within the Inventory tab  (You will not need to Reserve these Negative Inventory and/or Non-Inventory item entries).

2.Also, Negative Quantities for Inventory and/or Non-Inventory items may be inserted directly into a Job Costing record using the Item List sub-tab within the Inventory tab.  

 

3.The purpose of a Negative Non-Inventory item in the Item List is to be able to use that Negative Non-Inventory Quantity to signify a discount on the billable cost of the Work Order.

a.In this case, when you create an Invoice for the Work Order, it would match the Proposal (Discount).

 

4.When a Negative Quantity is used, that Negative Quantity on a Work Order to signify "returning" equipment to "Stock".

a.Therefore, the Inventory Item is recorded in the Default Warehouse.

b.The Negative Quantity (in the Material/Inventory Drop-Down Info Box on a Work Order) may not be changed to a Positive Quantity (an error will be presented if this is attempted).

c.If the Negative Quantity was entered in error in the Material/Inventory Drop-Down Info Box on a Work Order , that record must be deleted; and then if appropriate, a Positive Quantity enter may be made.
