Release Notes 01/2021

Mobile stock tool

Backoffice has a new feature called Stock Tool. With this new tool users can find products on Stock, create Stock transactions – stock in as well as stock out – quickly, create an inventory, complete it, and make quick corrections to stock values. In the mobile version of Backoffice the device's camera can be used to scan barcodes. Also, for example a Bluetooth scanner can be used, if it is configured in Keyboard Wedge mode to enter <HOME>data<ENTER>.

Stock Tool can be accessed by choosing Stock Tool in the side menu in Backoffice. Products can be searched with the "FIND" tab by pressing the barcode button and typing SKU or barcode.

Stock transactions can be made by using the "IN" and "OUT" tabs. To make a stock in transaction first select the "IN" tab, then press the barcode button. After that, insert the SKU or barcode of the product you wish to find. The program completes the search automatically. If there is no product found with the given information, an error "Product not found" will appear.
After finding the wanted products via search you may enter the quantities you wish to add to the stock. To finish the transaction, press "SEND". If the transaction is succesfully completed, you will get a notification "All products have been sent".

The stock out feature works the same way, but via the "OUT" tab.

From the "INVENTORY" tab you can add products to open inventories. Select the open inventory you want to add products to, then insert the SKU or barcode of the products you wish to add. After that, insert the quantities for the products. Then press "SEND". If the operation is succesful, you will get a notification "All products have been sent".

The "CORRECT" tab can be used to correct a value of a product. First you need to type the SKU or barcode to the search. Then you can leave a comment, a reason for the correction. This is not mandatory. After that you may enter the quantity. When making a correction, the given quantity will be new value of the product in the stock.

Improved Mobile view on Backoffice

Viewing Backoffice with a mobile device is now more user friendly. The improvements have been deployed in product list, ingredient list, order list, stock handling and customers view.

Safari is still not supported. Please use Google Chrome on mobile devices. On iOS, you need to turn on setting "Allow Cross-Website Tracking" in Google Chrome settings:

MobilePay Invoice

It is now possible to pay using MobilePay. Invoices to customer's MobilePay account can be sent from POS. MobilePay Invoice can be used instead of any other payment method. After the invoice is sent from the POS, customer will receive it to their MobilePay account.
At first MobilePay Invoice must be enabled in Backoffice by turning on the switch "Enable MobilePay". Turning on the switch will redirect you to MobilePay's web site. Additional instructions to complete the MobilePay registeration will be released later or can be found from MobilePay's web site.

Before the MobilePay Invoice can be used on the POS, it must be configured as a payment method in the Backoffice. First select the workstation you wish to add the MobilePay invoice as a payment method to. Then open Payment Service and press "NEW".

After that, select "WebPayment" as the Type of the new payment method. Then give a name to the payment method and press "ADD PAYMENT METHOD".

Next, you need to set "MobilePay" as WebPaymentProvider. Set rounding to 0.01. Also check "Payment in use" is turned on. Then press "SAVE".

On the POS, login and press "MENU" > "REFRESH". Then you can select MobilePay as a payment method like any other payment method. MobilePay Invoice can be sent to customer by email, MobilePay or SMS. For now, only MobilePay is implemented. The other features will be available soon.

When sending the invoice by MobilePay, customer's phone number is needed. The number needs to be in international format. After accepting the payment on the POS, the system will send a notification for the customer to accept the payment. While waiting for the customer's acceptance or rejection, the order will be shown with "Pending" status in Backoffice.

On POS a notification of a pending MobilePay Invoice will appear.

If the customer accepts the payment, the payment's status in Backoffice will change to "Accepted" and if after that the order is fully paid, the order's status will change to "Ready". On POS the user will get a notification that the payment has been accepted.
If the order is rejected, the order will have a status of "Unfinished" in Backoffice and user will get notifications about the rejection on POS.

On POS, there is also a new button to check all MobilePay Invoice payments. There the you can check the status of all MobilePay Invoice payments: accepted, pending and rejected.
