Latest Aleyant PrintJobManager™ Release Now Available

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

Adding a Percentage Markup to a Sales Price
We have added the ability to add an additional mark up/mark down percentages to individual options within option components inside a product engine.

With this new enhancement, you can add an additional % markup or discounts to total sell price. In the screenshot above, when selected “3 Day Rush” as the option for turn time, the sell price will increase by 25% of the total sell price. This option is available for all product engine option components .

Force a Selection in an Option Component
Previously, a pricing engine would calculate a price even without selecting an option.

With this new feature for an option component, it will force a selection of an option when this checkbox is checked. This will help reduce any confusion of generating a price without all of the required information needed for a calculation.

New Ability to Generate Purchase Orders through PrintJobManager
PrintJobManager now has the ability to generate purchase orders for materials. PO’s can be generated automatically or manually based on your criteria.

Purchase orders can be viewed inside the Materials module and can be sorted by Date, Cost, Job Number, Material, and Quantity. PO’s can be checked as received once material is delivered.

Vendors are set up as organizations and then designed as a vendor by checking the “Vendor Box”. Materials can be selected to generate a PO upon ordering from a pricing engine. This will work for speciality materials under inventory control, customer specific materials or outsourced materials that require a PO prior to ordering.

Once generated, a purchase order will contain your business information, vendor information, a generated PO number, description of the material you are ordering, quantity, and price. Purchase Orders can be manually edited prior to sending to the vendor.

Enhanced Zapier Integration
Shipping weights are now available via Zapier. This will be helpful for integration with applications that require a shipping weight, such as ShipStation..

In addition to resolving some issues, the PrintJobManager team has added enhancements in User Permissions, Product Engine Calculations, and Variance Reporting.

Latest Aleyant eDocBuilder™ Release Now Available

Fill Fields with Color Now Available in eDocBuilder Interactive Designer

You can now set a text field in your template with a background color, and also allow your customer to create a new text field and fill it with a color. Text fields can be filled with eDocBuilder’s default color palette, a custom color palette, or RGB / CMYK color. It is not required that the text field has actual text entered into it, which allows a field of any size and color to be added to the template.

Here you see both the text field background filled with color specified in the field Format Tab, and also the new option for newly added text fields that allow you to fill a text field with a background color. No text is necessary in the text fields in order to take advantage of the fill color.


Setting Rules for New Fields Added to the Template During Customization

Go to admin > select template > template info > Text Styles and Text Field Default Value areas. Under Text Styles, you will need to check the option for “Can fill text field with color.” You can then select what the default color values should be, and what colors will be available choices under the Text Field Default Values area as seen below.

In the Interactive Designer, your customers can be given the option of adding new text fields to the template. If you would like them to be able to fill those text fields with a color, you will enable this in the Template Info area under Text Styles and then by enabling the option “Can fill text field with color.” You can also set what fill color you would like those new fields to display by default, and you can select what color options they can have when customizing (none=eDocBuilder default palette, a custom color palette you’ve created, or RGB or CMYK color pickers).


Setting Color Fill to the Background of Your Text Fields in the Template

Go to admin > select template > select the text field you would like to fill > Format Tab. Enter in the CMYK value you would like to use for your default background fill. If you’d also like your customer to be able to change the background color using a color palette, or CMYK/RGB Color Picker you may set that in the areas below along with setting the option to do so in the field Rules tab.

If you would like a text field in your template to have a background color, specify that in the Format Tab for the field.

If you would like your customer to be able to change the background color you added to a text field in your template, you will need to enable the option “Can fill text field with color” in the Rules Tab.
