Release Notes: March ’21- Performance Improvements and Bug Fixes

This is our monthly app update article that highlights recent feature releases and product improvements. Last month was mostly about improving the performance of the app, so a lot happened inside the app. You should be able to notice the difference in the app speed and responsiveness.


New Release – Features!

Supplier approval is now active on the Mobile App

On the web-app, in “Company Settings” -> “Suppliers”, you can activate a setting to let team members request a new supplier before they can request a purchase from that Supplier. We have now expanded that functionality to the mobile app.

With this setting active, if a team member creates a new supplier they will have to wait for approval before they can use that supplier.

Improvements

Performance Enhancements

  • We’ve cleaned up the code in the app. So much so that the CSS now loads 25% faster. You should notice that with faster page loads. 

Behavioral fixes

  • All edits done by Finance members are now recorded in the History Section of the PO. Previously some of the edits went unrecorded, now we’re keeping a full record of edits.
  • For companies with the QuickBooks Online integration active, the “QuickBooks Customer (Readonly)” field was listed on the PDF. That has been removed. 
  • PO not appearing under the pending requests after it was edited and resent for approval. This happened when the setting is active for “Require approval after Purchase Order edit” and is now fixed.
  • Budget changing when editing a PO – fixed.
  • Monthly budget statistics were be renamed and corrected for accurate figures.

  • 11 Additional bugs that happened in the back-end of the app have also been fixed.
