Release notes for update 2018.18-2

Internationalization of the platform:

This release includes another milestone in making international distributors available to all users of ITscope and offering country-specific versions.

  • For all users of the ITscope platform, there are now another 40 international (or previously only internally available) suppliers visible that can be set up with their own price lists.
  • Distributors can specify which countries they deliver to, and which visibility settings should apply to the price lists.

Sources of supply:

  • For the source view, the new options menu can be used to distinguish between all distributors and distributors delivering to you. Distributors delivering to you are those who deliver to your country or who you have partnered with.
  • Suppliers often have to be set up to display prices. There is now a clear “set up” note on the supply source list.
  • Sources of supply can be filtered by company tags (supplier has a tag or does not have a tag).
  • Source filter can be specified per department by the admin and applied to all employees. This allows individual suppliers to be shown or hidden for specific employee groups.
  • The grouping of the sources of supply can now be undone completely (grouping: none).

  • Selected tags, sorting and grouping remain saved and can be completely reset via the new options menu.

Companies:

  • The company search now allows you to filter by delivery region. Only distributors who deliver to a respective country are displayed.
