  Web manufacturing is here

Like that heading says, we’ve introduced manufacturing to our web app, but it’s actually more than that. We’ve polished and refined the processes around manufacturing as well, giving you more control and precision for builds.

You can prioritize what to build first, add production routing for each assembly, disassemble products, view quantity buildable, and more. There’s so much to cover that we’ve written a Big Manufacturing Update blog post full of pictures and videos to show you around.

   More powerful list views

We’re also debuting great upgrades to list views for sales, purchases, and products. You can now reorganize and customize columns while viewing these lists, so you can get exactly the view that works for you.

You can also take actions, like setting product categories or marking orders as paid, on multiple records at once. Just select the checkbox for each record you want to change and then choose an action along the top of the list.

General improvements:

  •  We’ve simplified the homepage of the web app.
  •  inFlow now remembers which tab you were last using in the list view.
  •  We’ve moved blank picking and SKU/description controls into a legacy settings area (find it in Options > Inventory)
  •  Email fields have been re-arranged to better reflect the order you see in email clients (To, Cc, and then Bcc).

Stuff we’ve fixed:

  •  We’ve fixed duplicated headers on printed orders.
  •  We’ve fixed an issue that could prevent stock levels from being pushed to Shopify and WooCommerce after a stock transfer.
