2.8.0 - Sharing Dashboard Views

May 10, 2022

Keeping an Eye on KPIs

By popular request, sharing dashboard views is now possible in ItemPath. You can now create dashboards to share with your team! Users can switch between their private and public views.

Keep key data top of mind with multiple colours and graph styles. Customize multiple views with unique widgets and switch between them. Toggle the "shared" setting to make the view accessible across all users—or keep it to yourself.

Dashboard sharing

This example is keeping an eye on productivity and location space, but the possibilities are virtually endless. You can use any snapshot from your reports in dashboard widgets! Get started with some popular report templates.

New Features

  • Pop-up indicates when to refresh the browser because a new version of ItemPath is available.
  • API access and refresh tokens now return their expiry date in the response.
  • Endpoints for Kits and Kit Lines are added to the API.
  • Emails sent via ItemPath now say "Sent from [your company] through ItemPath" in the email footer.
  • Exported report files are sorted by most recent first. Reports can be exported to XLSX.
  • Time formatting in API logs show a more verbose time.

Bugfixes

  • Updating user type to application is fixed.
  • Testing a connection sometimes appeared to fail even though the connection was successful. The API logs now have clearer response messages.
  • If user time zone isn't set, defaults to the global setting rather than missing.
  • Switching between snapshots is more responsive.
  • Added the ability to create multiple orders within milliseconds, even with few user licenses, by saving sessions.
  • Order processing confirmation shows the current serial number being processed.

2.7.8 - Better Error Messages & Report Building Tools

April 14, 2022

Here's what's been updated in ItemPath in recent versions up to 2.7.8.

What's the Problem Here?

Diagnosing errors from API responses just got a whole lot easer. Now when an API call fails, you'll get a detailed error message in the response. The status code and message will give immediate feedback about your request, with a diagnosis (need to modify the data or formatting, missing a required field, a connection has been lost, etc.).

New Tools for Report Builders

Reports now support column variables. This means that in report filters, you can compare the values of two report columns by using "column: Column Name". Check out the example pictured below where we filter out materials that (after being allocated to pick orders) have a net quantity less than the reorder point for that material.

Cycle 5 2

Also, report columns can now be renamed after they're created, in case you want to add descriptions or change column names that were created by default, without deleting columns and re-adding them. And for easier report creation, you can now duplicate a report to start working from a copy instead of starting from scratch. (Don't forget, you can also import our handy pre-made report templates.)

Cycle 5 3

New Features

API:

  • New API endpoints are added, including create, update, and delete Material Codes
  • There is a new API type -> No Auth
  • Users can add a testing URL setting to an API connection

Data Push:

  • Headers can be added to Data Push at the connection level (as well as the integration level)

Explorer:

  • Storage rules and bin views are now available in the explorer

Settings & Logs:

  • Users can set their own time zone in the user panel
  • Headers are hidden from log messages for security

Bug fixes

  • New passwords set in the user panel are saving properly
  • The date comparator in the report filter is now working
  • Dashboard widgets pie charts are now showing correctly
  • In API logs, pagination is fixed, and sorting and filtering can be done per user
