OASIS Version 2.7 adds new features when printing orders. This document describes the new features and suggests when these features should be used.
Commissioned (agency) Orders
“Output to” controls where the print output will be produced. The following options are standard:
- Local Printer – the system printer dialog is used to select a printer.
- Print Preview – print is shown on screen with the “Office Copy” water mark.
- PDF File – a file selection dialog is used to select the name and location where a PDF copy of the print will be produced.
- Microsoft Excel – a file selection dialog is used to select the name and location where an Excel copy of the print will be produced.
- Send Message – the OASIS send message feature is activated for sending FAX or emailing.
A customer form is created showing the items being ordered and the sell price. The form is addressed to the customer in Send Message.
Customer Shipping Status
The OASIS order status form is created showing estimated, scheduled and ship dates. The form is addressed to the customer in Send Message.
Transmit Action – the following actions are supported for commissioned orders:
- Sending Order – the order is produced without the “Office Copy” watermark. When printed, the transmit flag is set on the vendor order, requiring a change order for any further changes.
- Office Copy – regardless of the “Output to:” selection, the order will be produced with the “Office Copy” watermark and the transmit flag will not be set if the order is printed.
- Internal Change – “Output to:” is ignored. The selected manufacturer order(s) will be set as “transmitted” and a PDF copy of the order will be saved to the order attachments. A change order will be required for any further changes to the order.
- Send Direct! – for manufacturers that accept orders electronically from OASIS, the order is directly sent to the manufacturer. The “Output to:” selection is ignored.
Suppress “Reprint of Existing Order” message
This feature is often used to reprint the order “as is” to ensure the manufacturer is up-to-date with the current order state.
