New Aleyant tFLOW Release Now Available

tFLOW’s latest update is packed with some great new features that will supercharge your print shop’s efficiency, helping you get jobs completed and out the door quicker. See below for more details on these new features.

White Ink and Varnish Proofing

For customers in the labels, packaging, and specialty graphics segments, tFLOW’s latest white and varnish proofing feature is a major timesaver when preparing proofs. tFLOW will now automatically take the white or vanish layers and show them separately on the proof.  They are also clearly labeled and color can be assigned for visibility, as seen in the image below. This makes it very easy for customers to view the white and varnish layers alongside the color areas of the artwork to assure that the file has been prepared correctly for production.

Improved Mobile Experience

More and more users turn to their mobile phones for their daily business, and tFLOW has improved the mobile experience to keep pace. Mobile users will see cleaner job lists, updated navigation screens, a more focused approval screen, and faster proof loading, as seen in the image below. Stay tuned for further mobile enhancement in the near future.

Latest Aleyant PrintJobManager™ Release Now Available

The PrintJobManager team has made a number of changes and enhancements in the latest release. In addition to numerous tweaks and fixes, we have created several key new features:

Materials Naming Structure
We have enhanced our materials naming structure. Previously, a material only had one name that appeared. With this release, we now provide two fields for the naming structure. One is the Internal Name, and one is the External Name.

The “Internal Name” can be a full description of the material and will appear on all PrintJobManager internal documents such as the job ticket, order summary, and when building a product engine. This should be a unique name for this material.

The “External Name” is a naming structure that will appear in customer-facing views, for example when a user creates a job, within estimate documents, and when integrated with Pressero storefronts. This can be a duplicate naming structure.

Updated Material Categories
This feature enhancement will now allow users to place materials into multiple categories.

By placing a substrate or material into multiple categories, users can easily make universal changes to product engines by adding or removing material. A material can be placed into as many categories as the user has defined.

Estimate Expiration Date
We have added the Estimate Expiration Date as a column option when setting up the list view. Users will have the ability to view and sort by the estimate expiration date. If no date is selected, or after an estimate is converted to a job, the date will no longer appear.

image1Custom Fields Available for List Estimate/Jobs
In a similar fashion, we have added the ability to view any custom fields that have been created for Organization, Person, Job/Estimate and Order in the list view. Only those fields created will be able to be selected and shown.

Updated Email Templates
In the current release, we have updated the look of our email templates. The email templates for Order Acknowledged, Payment Request, Estimate, Estimate Rejected, and Acknowledge Payment have all been updated.

If you have modified your current email templates, then those were not affected. If you have questions regarding this matter, please contact your support team and we can work with you to update your templates.

In addition to resolving some issues, the PrintJobManager team has added enhancements regarding updating the tax rate calculations, status actions, and user interface updates.

New Aleyant Pressero and eDocBuilder™ Releases Now Available

eDocBuilder

Character Counter for Text Fields Added
A somewhat small, but helpful enhancement has been added to eDocBuilder text fields. You can now add a character counter to the text fields your customers customize to help them know how much text is available to them for a given field. It can be a bit of a mystery on how much text you can still enter when you set a limit on the characters allowed in a field… well no longer! To enable this option look for “Display Character Counter” in the Data Capture tab in the Field Designer or the Field Setup area.

Field Designer Update
As mentioned in our previous eDocBuilder Blog Posted on April 5, 2018, our all new Field Designer has been released for you to try out! We’ve been getting great feedback on this new feature and customers are already seeing it save them time while creating their templates. The items enabled since our last blog are:

  • You can now rotate fields on Center or Lower Left corner for Form Templates.
  • Set image fields to upload from Assets only, Desktop only, or Both.
  • You can now set a maximum length for text fields.
  • We added the option to include character counters to text fields.
  • We have now completed the Rules Panel for image and text fields.

More updates coming soon!

Hide Previously Viewed History in Storefronts
A common question asked of our support team is how can one hide the History (or Previously Viewed) area in the storefront. In the past, the answer was to add custom CSS to the Head Content area. With this last release, we now have an option for you to hide that area on a specific skin. To locate this option, go to Admin > Sites [select site] > Skins > Additional Skin Options section > Hide History Panel. If you are already hiding this area with custom CSS, we highly recommend removing that code from the head content area to avoid any future problems with you skin and use this solution instead.

Product Assets When Part of a Kit Are Now Provided in Order Detail Area of Admin
In the past, we’ve instructed you to assign any necessary product assets to the Kit itself (not the components) if you wanted them to be included in the Admin Orders > File tab. Understanding that not all kit components might be ordered in the kit, we made a change that will now pass the assets that are assigned to your kit components. This way we limit the files that were part of the kit items your customer ordered to what is being passed to you. Along with this, if you allow those assets (or selected assets) to be available to your customers on the product pages, all the assets for those components will be listed and available for download.

Help Provided in Site Navigation Setup
We recently updated the Admin Navigation area and in hindsight we thought it would have been helpful to you if we would have added some descriptive text beside each of the menus to explain where that menu would be located in your storefront. It might be a few weeks late, but you will now see this addition (see screenshot below). If you missed the new navigation changes, you can refer to our previous blog posted on March 28, 2018.
