September 2022 Release

Runs & Planning

 

Exclude Orders with No ‘Required Date’ in Unplanned list

 

Improvement

  

We’ve now added the ability for you to exclude orders which have no ‘Required Date’ in the unplanned list of the ‘Advanced Planning’ screen so that you can focus your attention on orders which do have required dates and may be considered more urgent.

Changing Resources on a Completed Run Warning

 

Improvement

  

We’ve added a warning which appears when trying to change the resource on a completed run.

 

Users & Drivers

 

Prevent Removal of Own ‘Users & Drivers’ Menu Item

 

Fix

  

We have made it so users who have access to the ‘Users & Drivers’ option in the main menu, can no longer accidentally remove their own access to this page in Custom Settings, as it prevents the user from being unable to reinstate their own access.

Admin users can still choose which other users are able to access the Users & Drivers screen in the main menu.

 

Reporting

 

Order Monitor Export

 

New

  

We’ve added an ‘Export’ button on the ‘Order Monitor’ screen based on the filters selected.

This can, for example, be used to show deliveries that have failed on a particular day. To see this information, select Search > choose a planned date then select Status – Delivery failed > Activate Search > Export.

We’ve made some improvements to the Driver Debrief Report.

August 2022 Release


Learn more about the August release here.


Order Management


Cancel multiple orders at the same time in Order Search

 

New

  

Cancel multiple orders at the same time from the Order Search screen to stop this having to be done on an order-by-order basis. You can now simply select multiple orders (using Shift + Click or Ctrl + Click combinations) and then click ‘Actions’ followed by ‘Cancel’ to cancel multiple orders at once.


Remove order date filter if no results found in Order Search

 

New

  

We’ve added a button to allow the quick removal of the order date filter, if no orders are found for the default selected date range (today to 3 months prior). This is to prevent you having to perform a manual adjustment to the filter to see your orders should there be no orders appearing for the default filter.


When uploading orders, the Confirm Orders screen is now skipped when ‘auto-confirm’ is enabled

 

Fix

  

Previously users would be shown the unconfirmed orders list in ‘Order Search’ after a successful upload, even when ‘auto confirm’ had been selected. We’ve fixed this function so that if ‘auto-confirm’ is selected, users will not see the unconfirmed orders screen following their upload.


Order Monitor tooltips now showing the original planned ETA

 

Improvement

  

We’ve updated the tooltip which appears when hovering over the ETA on the ‘Order Monitor’ screen to show the original planned ETA of the collection/delivery.


Integrations


Add option to default usual driver in Solutions API

 

Improvement

  

If you don’t send a driver through as part of the API call, this new update can allow you to default the driver based on the ‘usual’ driver of the vehicle in Stream. (Specific to the Solutions API)


Unleashed integration

 

Improvement

  

Added the ability to receive orders into a single Stream account from multiple Unleashed accounts


Runs & Route Planning


Extra validation to stop a departed run being opened

 

Improvement

  

We’ve added a validation check so that Stream will check if a run has departed and if it has, will not allow it to be opened in planning.


Notifications


Option to ‘Opt out’ of notifications enabled in Logistics variant of Stream

 

New

  

For companies using the Car Transport & Logistics variant of Stream, we have now added the ability to opt your customers out of receiving email and SMS notifications from Stream, based on their preferences. This functionality is already available to other Stream users and the option to opt out of notifications can be updated by clicking ‘Edit’ on the delivery location details on an order.


Settings


Add ‘Area of Operations’ to settings

 

New

  

If your operation spans multiple countries, you can now edit your ‘Area of Operations’ to add or remove additional countries. The ‘Area of Operations’ settings are visible by going to ‘Settings’ and then ‘General’, where you can then add/remove the relevant countries as needed, but these will only be visible to users that have requested access to the ‘Area of Operations’ settings.


General Updates and Fixes

 

Fix

  
  • Updates to the Order Details screen (v 1.0.7)

  • Removed unnecessary logging when a ‘trunk run’ is selected in Planning

  • Messages maintenance – initial release

  • Logging added for ‘Run Departed’ in the Stream mobile app

Run completion & driver debrief report

 

New

  

The eagle eyed amongst you will have seen that this particular feature release was mentioned very briefly last month. Here’s a more in-depth explanation of these new reports.

When a particular run has been completed, it is now possible to create a pdf report, which provides information on the events for each stop on that run and list any items that have been returned and showing any issues with that particular run. You’ll be able to access and run the report from Action/Print list in the Selected Run section of Advanced Planning. The report is intended for your internal use and is available for delivery/collection runs only.

The report will give details of a run with the following information:

  • Summary of the route/depot/ number of stops etc.
  • Planned and actual start and end times
  • Number of deliveries completed
  • Variance between planned and actual time
  • Details in stop order of planned slot /actual time, order number and customer
  • Details of breaks:
  • Whether the order was Delivered/ Delivered with Issues / Failed / Collected / Missed etc.
  • Details of the items to unload with the reason for return
  • If it was a collection, a list of the items collected will be provided
  • Late times will be shown in red and anything other than a status of Delivered/Collected in full will be shown in red.

Barcode scanning exceptions report

 

New

  

We’ve added a new report which details all non-scanned items following loading of a vehicle by delivery route/run.

Your warehouse supervisors and / or transport planners will find this new report particularly useful for quickly seeing any expected items which were not scanned on to a run so they can take appropriate action to investigate the reason, organise alternative goods, or informing the customer service team etc.

A new ‘export’ option has been added to the Advanced Planning screen. This will be available for a single run or a selection of runs by selecting the export option against either a ‘Selected Run’ or against the ‘Run List’ which can be filtered as required.

The export will be valid for selection against both trunk and delivery runs. We expect subscribers will predominantly use this new export against all runs (routes) for a depot after loading has finished.
