PixSell release 2.14.001 contains the following update:

  • Improved stock level detection for Sales Promotions The Promotions module will now make use of your existing “Out of Stock” warning configuration to provide the same functionality as in the catalogue. This will allow any product with a stock level that was already 0 in your latest export to be highlighted in red if this is configured to do so in the catalogue. Likewise, if you try to add more qualifying promotion products that are in stock, it will warn you and stop you adding this product if this is also configured to do so in the catalogue.

Version release 2.12.004, (Feb 2, 2019)

PixSell release 2.12.004 contains bug fixes to the following:

  • The street view photo of the customer location showed a grey square with an error instead. This was due to the Google Street View API no longer being available. This has therefore been removed.

Note to PixSell administrators – Whilst we make every effort to thoroughly test each new release, there is always scope that upgrading without testing may have an adverse impact on your business processes.

Our advice is that you review this version before instructing users to upgrade. This will ensure minimal interruption to your PixSell services.

Testing advice & best practice – Please disable the automatic update of Apps from the App Store on all iPads using the PixSell application in a live environment. We would recommend that any new release is thoroughly tested before rolling out all iPads by processing examples transactions that confirm to your most common workflows – for example

Upgrade a single iPad and process a transaction that applies:

  • Line discounts
  • Order discounts
  • Suggested orders
  • Duplicate orders
  • Promotions
  • Multi-language/Multi-currency variants
  • Planned re-orders and In-store counts

If you have any queries or require any further information, please contact Aspin support.

  • Changing companies using PixSell Agent didn’t always clear the Workflow configuration.
  • In Plan Re-Orders, updating the pocket quantity to 0 using the calculator (rather than deleting it) didn’t update the pocket display.
  • In portrait mode slides of images would display in such a way that the back button and page indicators were partially obscured.
  • If a presentation screen tile linking to a collection was not configured against an existing collection, the catalogue would display with a missing collection name. In such cases, when the tile is pressed PixSell will now show a “Configuration Alert” advising the tile action is not correctly configured.
  • The sort option in the Catalogue search wasn’t appearing until tapping out of the search filed and going back in.
  • Other screens could sometimes appear in the background of the Catalogue when quickly trying to open the Catalogue after opening an order or repeatedly pressing the Catalogue whilst a transaction is still loading.

  • When on the Customer List, the iPad didn’t go to sleep, even with a 2 minute Auto-Lock set in Settings / Display & Brightness.
  • In-store Counts were not adding quantities correctly when scanning barcodes.
  • Having selected a prospect account, attempting to start an In-store Count displayed the message “In-store Counts not allowed for prospects” and tapping OK would cause PixSell to crash.
