Changelog (beta)

The beta channel brings you the most recent features.
Looking for the most stable releases? Check out the main channel instead.

On the app you can opt for either release channel through Settings > General > Check updates

Make sure to backup your workspace before you start using releases from the beta channel. Things might be a bit unstable, especially early on on the beta phase. If in doubt, please get in touch.
On Team Workspaces it is recommended for all users to use the same version of the app so everyone has access to the same features.
  • This is the first release that brings support for the upcoming ENTERPRISE plan. Similar to the TEAM plan but it allows you to host everything yourself (users and Team Workspaces), keeping the app 100% offline if needed as it comes with an offline license so it doesn't need to touch our servers at all. The offline license can also include access to multiple Team Workspaces. If you'd like to try this out, please get in touch.

    Documentation on how to set up and use the ENTERPRISE plan is available here:

  • Releases for macOS are now universal (they run natively both on Intel and ARM processors)

Release Notes v2.10.0-beta.11

February 3, 2023
Download: Windows | macOS
  • Backport of v2.9.20, v2.9.21 and v2.9.22 releases (see changelog)
  • New feature: Production Plans (more below)
  • Projects have been renamed to Products
  • Inventory can now have an ID code, which should uniquely identify the inventory itself, and a Date code. The ID code shows up on Sources, when picking inventory for assembly.

  • Products and Inventory tables added to Contacts, so you can see, for a given contact, all the products or inventory the contact is a customer or owner of.
  • [fix] Wrong quantity when adding a part into a purchase list through Add to... > Purchase List

Production Plans

Production plans are essentially an additional step before creating project builds. Since projects builds only look at current availability, it was so far quite difficult to tell if you'd have enough stock to build multiple projects, either now or along time, unless inventory would be imediatlly reserved which in turn would have to be already available and in full. Production plans address that.

All you specify in a production plan is how many units you want to build, by which date they should be ready and, optionally, what's the reason for you to need that quantity. Once you want to actually move things into production, you pick the production plans you want to move into production which can then be merged into a single project build for each project.

Procurement of missing parts is also improved, as the app will automatically create a purchase list and/or other production plans for all the missing parts.Finally, when items are addedd into this purchase list or production plans are created, they keep a reference for what originated them making it easier to track if a given quantity that was purchased for a build has been ordered or not, for example.

Production plans are available on professional plans only. Production builds can still be created directly.

Partial Builds

Sometimes you have enough inventory partially finish a production build. The app will detect that and, from selected production plans, would create two different builds: a partial one which is ready to be built, and another one with the remaining quantity, which would have to wait for missing parts to be received or produced. As mentioned above, procurement is done automatically.

Cancelling And Adjusting Batch Sizes

On top of of completely removing a production build, you now have the option to cancel a production build. When cancelling a build, the build is marked as such (but not removed) and production plans that origated it are re-created. This means you can then remove, edit or add other production plans and create a new build for the new batch size.

Instead of editing the build's batch size directly, the quantity adjustment is done on the production plan itself.

When cancelling a build, all parts and quantities that have been automatically procured are removed, as long as they remain in an open purchase list or production plan.

  • Units of measure: you can now track inventory measured by its length, area, volume or weight. New units can be created under these categories.
    You can for example create different units for Unit (by default, Each is used) which would allow you to track quantities by Packs or 40-pin or pin which can then be converted to any other unit under the same category. Units of measure under the same category (i.e. unit, length, area, volume or weight) can be converted into each other.
  • With the introduction of units of measure, parts can also have different categories: electrical, mechanical and consumable. Only consumables can be tracked by its length, area, volume or weight.
  • When manually creating a BOM entry, a part can be picked to be immediately assigned
  • A color can now be defined for custom fields of type Option, which is displayed on tables
  • All fields named Quantity were renamed to Qty for brevity and consistency throughout the app
  • Number representation respects current locale

  • Production: links for project and project revision added to the top of the table
  • [fix] Project builds: chance for the `Pick alternate..." context-menu to be incorrectly disabled
  • [fix] Project builds: update allocated inventory when merging or splitting items
  • [fix] Generic parts: changed the way Stock Balance is calculated. Since generics don't keep their own stock (instead, they use stock from their alternate parts), Stock Balance for generic parts only takes into account their own planned and allocated inventory as open purchase lists and planned project builds are the only places where you can find generic parts listed. The Stock Balance of each of its alternates is then added into this value, but only if positive.

  • Projects: a project build is now considered in-progress once inventory has been reserved for at least one item
  • Parts: the on/off setting for the auto-completer for outsourced parts in the Part dialog is now remembered
  • Lots: when manually increasing quantity of inventory on a Lot a (big) warning is displayed and leaving a comment, briefly explaining this adjustment, is mandatory
  • Barcodes: angle brackets can now be used to replace non-readable characters on vendor-barcodes (e.g. <GS>; before only curly brackets were supported as in {GS})

  • Inventory: inventory for in-house parts without a project associated to them can get a textual Rev (instead of having to pick a specific revision from a project)
  • Inventory: when adding inventory, a Rev can be defined
  • Lots: Lots can now be manually created through the Lots tab. These are named custom Lots as inventory can be added into them only manually (through the Inventory table or when importing parts)
  • Lots: Lot # can now be renamed
  • Lots: new field Alt. Lot #. While Lot # has to be unique, Alt. Lot # doesn't. It can be used to represent a vendor or customer-facing lot code, different than the one used internally.
  • Projects: Pricing & Availability table now includes an Availability column. This represents availability to purchase (if needed), according to the selected quotes (or lack of them). This should make it easier to spot the parts that might be harder to source for the desired quantity.

  • Date pickers now have a select box to quickly select the year and month
  • Settings: Enforce quotes no longer exists. On a purchase list, selecting quotes is mandatory so purchase orders for each supplier can be created.
  • Multiple labels can be removed at the same time
  • Inventory on a Lot can now be manually increased. This might result in traceability loss as this adjustment might not be related with the purchase order or project build the Lot was originally created at, so adding a comment explaining this adjustment is recommended.
  • [fix] Suppliers: not able to create a price break on a custom quote
  • [fix] API: part not being correctly assigned when creating a project build
  • [fix] External links not opening on the default browser

  • You can now set the Preferred Part Number a part should be identified with: Internal PN or Part Number. This is done through Settings > Workspace > Preferred PN. With this, fields like Alternates, that display a list of alternative parts, will use either part number to identify those parts. On barcode labels, when the preferred PN is set to Internal PN, the Internal PN is used on the barcode label's title (instead of the manufacturer's Part Number) as it's more relevant.
  • Custom fields of type App Element can now have multiple values. As an example, on a custom field of type App Element - Part you could set multiple parts under that field.
  • New shortcut: Ctrl + P (or Cmd+P on macOS). This sends selected items on the most recently used table to the printer, similar to manually exporting labels and selecting Send to printer as the output method. The most recently used table is the one that received a click or on each an item was most recently selected.
  • Contacts: references to Customer removed. Instead of a Customer #, a contact has now an ID which consists of an alternative way to identify the contact other than by its name
  • Contacts: references to VAT# field renamed to Tax ID

  • BOM: auto-assign parts only of selected items
  • When auto-assigning parts, consider generic parts as well
  • Stock On-hand renamed to Stock Available
  • Stock On-hand now represents the sum of stock available plus the stock reserved, as both stock available and reserved are technically on-hand.
  • New types of inventory: allocated and in-production. These allow to list and track inventory that has been allocated to purchase builds or sales orders. Allocated inventory doesn't necessarily exist or is associated to any specific stock unit, but it allows to represent a need for that inventory. Later, this will be used to better plan production and purchasing by taking into account current inventory levels and already allocated inventory, as well as its timeline. Lastly, in-production inventory allows to track units that are currently in production, similarly to the on-order inventory that was already being listed.
  • Stock Balance: this represents all the stock that is available and incoming (ordered or in-production) minus the stock that has been allocated. This should provide you with a useful insight on whether you are stocking more inventory than you need (overstocking) or the opposite (understocking).
  • Part details and inventory table display all stock types (on-hand, available, reserved, allocated, on-order and in-production)
