Rate Shop. Improved Carrier Results Display

The RateShop Results popup will now first display the carriers with the same day delivery option. If none is available, then the current behavior is used.

Blackbox. Expanded Support for EndOfDay for Closed Transactions

Added ability to request and store consolidated rates for certain ConnectShip carriers, if the account supports it. This feature has been added mainly for Canada-based carriers where this facility is common. Rate storing is triggered by the RateReconcile flag during the End of Day process (EndofDay Action Request). The flag returns the following information: Total Accessorial Charges, Total Shipping Charges and the Grand Total, and stores these against each package:

  • in the Packages and Shipments table (AccessorialCost, FreightCost and TotalCost columns)

The reconciled rate data is also included in the EndOfDay Get Response, if the IncludePackageData flag is set in the request.

Also, refer to the XML Schema Changes section of these release notes.

Bulk List. Users Can Now Manage Global, Department and Location Lists

You can now give users without administrative privileges permission to manage the bulk lists and their content (add, import and edit contacts). Several new settings give greater control over this feature:

  • The Users can Administer Contacts server setting. If set to True, allows user to manage bulk lists.
  • The Bulk Lists-All Users Can Administer project setting. If set to True, allows all users to manage bulk lists.
  • The Bulk Lists-Privileged Users List project setting. Comma-separated list of specific users allowed to manage bulk lists.

All settings default to False, if applicable.

Also, refer to the Project Template Changes section of these release notes.

SendSuite Tracking. Filtering for All Packages Now Allowed

Users with no administrative privileges can now select the "All Packages" option in the Unified View package filter. This option is controlled by the All Packages-Visible to All Users project setting.

Also, refer to the Project Template Changes section of these release notes.

 

OTHER CHANGES

This section contains information about minor changes and corrections. It can include issues raised in previous releases that have been corrected.

Output Rules. Country and Address Now Translate Prior to Running

Corrected an issue with address aliases not being applied prior to processing the output rules that were only looking for standardized codes, such as US, rather than all possible combinations (e.g., USA)

FedEx IPD. Invoice Number Now Passed to Carrier during Consolidated Open

Corrected FedEx IPD behavior; the Invoice number within the Ship Request will now be translated to the Consolidated Open Request, and thus, printed on the FedEx IPD Consolidated Commercial Invoice.

Generation 1 Project Templates. Fixed Issue with Freight Fields not Clearing after Rate Shopping

Added new logic to Generation 1 project templates to ensure that RateShop results are cleared when switching between freight carriers and standard carriers.

Also, refer to the Project Template Changes section of these release notes.
