Aleyant tFLOW Version 8.5 Has Arrived

tFLOW version 8.5 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 and also view here for an overview video on these new features.

Be sure to update tBOT to the latest version, so that it integrates seamlessly with this updated version of tFLOW. You can do this by clicking on the ‘Update’ button in the upper right corner of the tBOT window.


Automation Asset Manager.001

Automation Asset Manager – Now you can manage your own cut paths, overlays, profiles, fold lines, automation scripts and more. Easily drop and drag assets as well as organize, import and export files within tFLOW.


Order Status Report.001

Order Status Report – New and comprehensive email report that keeps you up-to-date on the entire order with just one email. Now you can quickly and easily view a job’s order summary, order activity and job activity and status all in one place. Best of all, you can now schedule to have this report sent to other team members and customers.


Alert eMail.001

eMail Alert – New mobile-friendly layout for status reports and email alerts. These alerts now have a configurable job summary area and list preflight errors (if present).


Pressero Support.001

Pressero Integration Enhancement – tFLOW now pulls data from Pressero pricing engines to allow you to configure your tFLOW automation. So for example, if a customer chooses a certain size, or needs white, or a cut path, or to add certain finishing like hem or grommets, etc., all of those choices can be passed from Pressero and configured automatically within tFLOW to auto process the files according to those choices.


Optional Ship Date – Set default ship date for new orders, or leave undefined.

Captcha Enabled on Forms by Default

Previously when you created a new Form on a Page in a B2C Site, you had to specifically enable the Captcha on the form. With this change, new forms will have the Captcha option selected by default.

captcha2

It is highly recommended to use Captchas on your forms to make sure a human is completing them instead of a computer robot which could send hundreds if not thousands of spam responses.

captcha

To enable or disable a Captcha for forms displaying on your pages in a B2C site, go to: Admin > Sites [select site] > Pages [select edit page] > Forms Tab.


Updates to Asset Area in Storefront

The following changes have been made to the Asset area on the Customer Storefronts:

Asset3

  • To make it easier to manage a large number of assets and have the assets load faster, we have added paging.

  • By default, the images associated with an Asset will be smaller in size. We’ve also added a quick toggle to show the image previews larger for when it is needed.

  • Allow end users that have permission to manage assets, the option to edit assets (see image below).

  • Allow end users that have permission to manage assets, the ability to edit and create new Categories of Assets (see image below).

Latest Aleyant PrintJobManager™ Release Now Available

PrintJobManager V
The PrintJobManager team has been working hard at improving its functionality and ease of use. We have made a number of enhancements recently that are included in this release.

The most significant enhancement involved the suppression feature. Previously when utilizing suppressions, the user was able to select a component from a drop down menu, then type in the trigger by memory.  Now there is a dropdown for the trigger as well which will show all items from a particular component, as featured in the image below.

#1 1127

The user can then make a selection and move to the next line. The user will still have to enter a line item for each item to suppress off of, but this will be quicker and more accurate.

Other updates in this release include:

  1. We added CIC Payment Method in PrintJobManager
  2. We added some icons to the estimate and job gear navigation panel
  3. In the job/estimate list views, all CSR, Sales Rep and Customer names will appear First name then Last name.
  4. We have removed price and status details from the Pick List
  5. Tooltips and currency symbols have been added to the Price Adjustment section of both create estimate and create job screens.
  6. Cultural issues involving display of dates have been corrected in multiple areas. The dates are now showing as Month/Day/Year or Day/Month/Year depending on the culture selected.
