Version: Storman v10.0.87
Released: 6 June 2018
Storman Unit Check
- For users syncing to a Storman Hub or hosted Storman Central, you will now be able to take advantage of our Storman Unit Check app! This is an extension of Storman (online) Reporting and has been built to be used on iPads or larger tables.
Lock List (daily processing)
- The lock list report, that is printed at the end of daily processing has been reworked and is now identical to the Unit Status Report (when running the Unit Status Report with the option: "Show Units that have changed status"). This means the 'new' Lock List is a point in time report, and will always show the most up to date data from Storman at the time of running. Any last minute payments (unlocking overdue storers), or late notices (locking storers out) will be taken into account at the time of printing.
- The 'door size' has been removed from the report.
- In system setup the option 'hide units from the lock list where no user intervention is required' has been reworded to 'hide units from lock list report with no action required'
- If you have a credit sales account for unallocated payment (e.g. a holding account), this is now accessible from the Customers menu. If you do not yet have an unallocated payment account setup yes, please read this article.
- We have fixed an issue where previous transactions would not show under the unallocated payment account
BPAY (AU only)
- BPay transactions can now be assigned to reservations.
- BPay transactions will can now be added to agreements or reservations regardless of whether they are active or inactive.
- For users with BPAY, we have made an improvement for payments where the storer has not entered their CRN (customer reference number) correctly. If you have an unallocated payment account (in the form of an other credit sale) setup and configured in Maintenance > System Setup. Storman will now assign any BPAY payments, where the entered reference number could not be found to this account. Allowing you to hold them until they can be identified.
