Improvement of B/L-Instrucion

With Scope 8.4 the BL-Instruction form is improved. Text elements will be shown as PDF-text, this results in:

  • better readability of the form
  • reduced file size and consequent lower memory requirements

Unnecessary elements were deleted with the effect:

  • better readability is guaranteed
  • more space for content (six lines)

Additionally the preview is optimized, using less memory for faster data loading.

eAWB messaging

Previously, eAWBs (FWB) were sent without any document available in Scope confirming this event. With the latest version of Scope, the FWB to the airline "CargoIMP" is stored in the documents tab of the shipment.

Currently this option is not implemented on all servers and is not available to all users. With the rollout process, we will make sure, that all users will have access to this feature.

In the Shipment Overview two optional columns have been added: Shipment Number (Agent) and Shipment Number (Gateway). The column Shipment Number is also available, but cannot be used for sorting.



Note function with shipment transfer to other user / Advanced notification function in case of absence

Previously, shipments sent to a users inbox arrived without any comments. Now it is possible to add some comments when sending a shipment to another users inbox. This ensures important information can be included when transferring shipments to a new user.

Additionally credit limit notes, US-Customs notes and NL-Customs notes will be shown as a growl message and will be available in the users inbox.  This ensures they are still available to the user even after a long absence by user.

By ticking the  the selected shipment can be sent to a user.
By ticking Send to a new window appears.

In the new window, the user can add a note. By ticking send, the note is available in the recipients inbox.

If the user logs in, he receives the Growl-message and his inbox is marked with a exclamation mark.

By ticking the inbox, a window with all incoming messages will appear. Unread messages are marked in bold. Read messages will be deleted automatically after two weeks. The latest message is shown first.

By ticking the message, it will open and the user can read the note. By ticking the blue action link, the user can jump directly into the shipment.

Show net amounts by multiple selection

Under Finance > Accounts Receivable or Accounts Payable the user can open the vouchers overview.

Previously, the Detailview displayed only the information for a single selected invoice. If the user marked more than one invoice, the detailview would be empty.
