Express Software Manager® Version 10.2
We are currently shipping version 10.2 of Express Software Manager. Maintained customers may upgrade to version 10.2 at no cost.
Version 10.2 provides changes to Express Purchasing to allow organizations to segment purchasing data based on organizational structure. When enabled, users will only be able to view and edit Express Purchasing data that is part of their access profile. The following features have been added to support this functionality:
- Access Profiles. Using the Express Purchasing Console's new Administration panel, Express Purchasing administrators can create access profiles that limit access of purchasing data to specific users or groups.
- History. Express Purchasing now tracks the history of changes to each order. When editing and viewing existing orders, you may view a report that displays this history, including date, user, item description, and old and updated values.
- Changing an Order's Access Profile. There may be occasions when it is necessary to change who has access to some orders. Purchasing administrators can migrate orders from one access profile to another via the new Administration panel in the Express Purchasing Console.
- Required Custom Fields. Custom purchasing fields can now be specified as required. When a field is required, the user creating an order or line item cannot save it until a value is provided.
