Delayed Automation Based on Variable Date and Time Fields

The delayed email result option has been further extended and it can now be set off before or after a variable date-time field. For example, send follow up to the creators of import shipments specific days and hours prior to the ETA to remind them to file documents like Commercial Invoice.

Paid Date in AP Invoices Automation

The Paid Date field has been added to the AP Invoice conditions for defining an automation that checks the paid date of the AP invoice.

Currency Rate Updates – Quick Accessibility 

The Currencies Rates link has been added to the top right corner of the workspace to provide quick access to exchange rates. Via this link users can view, edit and track currency rates from any module and entity in the system, without having to navigate to this option via Settings or Maintenance.

Shipment Adjustments

Pre/On-Carriage Carrier 

Users can choose any carrier in the pre/on-carriage legs despite the chosen transport mode for that leg.

MAWB Repetition

From now on, if a MAWB is repeated, Logitude users can manage it in a new shipment without having to erase the number from the old shipment it was used in. Please note that this is allowed only if the previous shipment that used the number is older than one year. 

Connected Quote Column

A new query column – Connected Quote, has been added to the available fields in Shipment views. It shows the number of the quote that is connected to the shipment.

Pickup/Delivery Events Adjustment

The shipment status will not be changed in the case of multiple pickups/deliveries, until all the pickups/deliveries arrive.

  • Receivables and payables can better handle charges whose UOM is percentage of freight.

Quote Adjustments

Quote Multi-Currency

The Multi-Currency mode has been added to the Sale Currency options in a quote. In the same way that the sale currency is defined as “Same as Cost”, it can now be defined as “Multi-Currency” so that different currencies can be used for cost and sale on the same line, for charges.
