Today we're going to go over the changes Sage has made to make the Inventory Advisor menus easier to work with when using touch devices like iPads, tablets and smart phones.
How to access the drop-down menu
Most of the menus now have a secondary feature to the button. By clicking or tapping the button the user can access the drop-down menu. The drop-down menu can close by either choosing one of the options, or clicking or touching somewhere else on the screen.
Clicking or touching the main part of the menu will still take you back to the primary action of the menu. This has not changed.
More information on the drop-down menus
There is also new some graphical information added to the menus. This makes it quicker and easier to compare the different locations.
The new Balance column shows graphically
- The value of OK inventory
- The value of potential lost sales of Potential Stock-out inventory
- The value of lost sales because of Stocked Out inventory
- The value of Excess inventory
- The value of any Surplus Orders
In the Stock holding column you can now see the actual and model values all in one column, and it includes a bar chart to easily compare and contrast stock holdings of the various locations.
Similarly the Fill rate column now shows the achieved and target fill rate in one column, with a bar chart to easily compare achieved fill rates of the various locations.
