Enhancements

Barcode Search for Parts

The parts screen now supports searching via a part’s barcode. This means that parts can be found in VGM by scanning their associated barcode, rather than searching by stock code or description.

"Send Automatically" setting on new Slot Types now set to branch default

New message templates created for slot types now have automated messages turned on by default, if your branch has Automated Messaging turned on (visible by the tick or cross at the bottom of the VGM window).

Vehicle Bookings replaced with Vehicle History

We have replaced the "Vehicle Bookings" window (displaying all bookings for a specific vehicle) with a new "Vehicle History" window, which displays all Bookings, Jobsheets, Sales Invoices, Quotations and Sales Credits against that vehicle.

Customers can now be removed as a vehicle owner without setting a new owner

You can now remove the current owner of a vehicle without setting another customer as the new owner.

Default nominal codes for slot types

You can now specify a default nominal code for Slot Types, which will be populated automatically when a new slot type is created.

Future Printer Reminders can now be processed

VGM previously only allowed the processing of current or historic Printer Reminders from the reminders screen. You can now process future Printer Reminders, processed Printer reminders will now display in the outbound message queue.

Adding notes to a customer record

You can now add notes to customers from the "Add / Edit Customer" window.

Email Customer Statements to customers

You can now email customer statements to customers through the Reports screen.

Select alternative document templates when printing

In Jobsheets, Quotations, Sales Invoices and Sales Credits, you can now print with alternative document templates (templates other than the one currently selected in the financial settings).

Save Technician filters in Jobsheets Grid

VGM will now save your selected technician filters in the Jobsheets grid.
