The release is tentatively scheduled for either Friday, December 18 or Monday, December 21.
Web Accessibility Compliance (Section 508): Ability to tab through catalogs on Shop page
If the keyboard Tab key is used to navigate on the Shop page, the catalog images will be selected and highlighted appropriately as the user moves through the text and images on the page.
When the Tab selection is focused on a catalog image or link, pressing the Enter key will trigger the corresponding catalog or non-catalog product detail input for the selected supplier.
Special Character Handling for General Ledger Integrations
Entities who are integrated with a third party ERP system occasionally encounter issues with special characters in item names or descriptions. These characters would prevent transactions from budget checking or releasing to the supplier.
We have added handling to process characters behind the scenes to reduce these occurrences. If you have any questions, please contact Customer Support.
Support for UNSPSC in PunchOut Catalogs
If a supplier’s PunchOut catalog item contains a UNSPSC (United Nations Standard Products and Services) code, the value will populate the reporting database. Users who create their own custom reports with theReporter can include an item’s UNSPSC code in transaction and purchase order reports.
Workbench Page Configuration – Ability to hide Shipping & Handling
A recent release introduced the ability to add Shipping and Handling for each non-catalog item. For entities who do not wish to use this feature, the Shipping and Handling field can be hidden using the Workbench Page Configuration screen. Hiding the field will prevent Shipping and Handling from displaying in the Non-Catalog Item Product Detail popup, as well as the Checkout, Approve, Manage and Receive tabs.
Faceted Search of Hosted and Level 2 PunchOut catalogs
We’ve completed enhancements to our Faceted Search functionality. The Faceted Search provides a searching experience similar to popular personal commerce sites, where search results can be filtered by various headings.
After a search is performed and results are returned, the results can be filtered by:
- Preferred Supplier
- MFG/Provider (Manufacturer)
- On/Off Contract
Selecting one or more filters will refine the search results accordingly, allowing for more efficient searching and shopping.
If you would like to enable Faceted Search, please contact Customer Support.
Support for Multiple Versions of User Template
The User upload validation process has been modified to accept multiple template versions. This change allows an entity to continue using a particular template version after new features are rolled out. Previously, a file would fail validation if an outdated template version was uploaded.
When downloading a User Template, a pop-up window will display with links to all acceptable template versions. These changes will be implemented for other templates, such as Workflow/Notification and Non-Catalog Supplier, in the near future.
