Can you look into adding additional attributes tab for the sale and purchases modules, for customization of those two modules. This would allow me to customize my Word templates to display and print out the additional attributes for each of the sale or the purchases modules.
There is no current way to identify a Job number for Sales orders. If not for the additional attributes available for the inventory module, I would find Dear unusable.
This would allow for a great deal of customization for your multitude of customers without having to specifically tailor a solution for each.
I was poking around with the API and noticed that sales have additional attributes but I couldn't figure out how to assign them and there was nothing in the documentation so I filed a ticket. Looks like Sale (and purchase) additional attribute sets are functional, and with the new attribute options of lists and checkboxes there is some great functionality here.
One nice thing about these sale attributes is that you can change them at any time during the sale process so they could be used for things as simple as keeping notes.
DEAR is getting better and better!
This is what I got from the support ticket:
"If you have created Additional Attributes, you can go to your Settings > General Settings > Sale Process Customization > Default Attribute Set section, and select which attribute to map. You will then be able to see this in the Log and Attributes tab of your sale transaction."
it would be nice to add like bundle qty for a single sku like 2pk 4pk 10 pk
It'd be very useful if we can have the attribute fields as date, combo, multi-combo, etc.
Having a custom field on Purchase Orders to use as a "Reference" (similar to the "Reference" field that already exists for Sales Orders) is crucial.
One thing that would be absolutely incredible would be to have additional attribute field types that would be of type: "URL" so that whatever was in this box would be an active URL.
This would open the door to some awesome 3rd party integrations where (for example) you could link from your DEAR sales order to your CRM's quote, etc. etc.
I would like for locations to have additional attributes too: clients which have remote locations sometimes like to make documentation for transfers between warehouses, but we can't store address details per location ... a stock transfer form could be more useful with location additional attributes.
I do agree
It would also be nice to have a free form custom field that could show up in the columns of DEAR purchase orders. When creating a purchase order the field could assign a tag or category within the vendor. For example I have a vendor that provides both testing and engineering services and also manufacturers product. I have many purchase orders and the only way to tell the difference between them is to look at either the total dollar amount or open each one to see the contents. A custom field could be used to help sort this out.
I also require this functionality. I'd also like to see the additional attributes on the sales order tobe included in integrations so that custom data can be moved (in my case) from Woocommerce through to DEAR and finally through to Quickbooks.
For example, I have an affiliate program and I would like to be able to:
1. Store the Affiliate data in custom post metadata in Woocommerce
2. Have the Affiliate data mapped to a custom field on my DEAR sales order
3. Have the Affiliate data mapped from DEAR to a custom field in Quickbooks.
I would also like the option of mapping a custom DEAR field to the Quickbooks Location field.
Very interested in this and would love to speak with someone from your team about our requirements. Please send me an email - firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would encourage DEAR to add functionality of a dropdown menu to access attributes while building a sales quote or order. My application specifically revolves around changing freight/logistics carriers:
The issue is that we can't tell the warehouse to ship via specific carrier because there is not a drop down list when building a sale to choose the carrier. I know that during invoicing we enter what we call "shipping feedback", entering the carrier and the tracking number, but this is after the fact. The product has already been assigned a carrier and thus generated a tracking number.
A customer attribute could be used to populate the different carriers but we need a way to choose the attribute during the creation of the sales order or quote. To that end you would need to be able to edit the name of the attribute so that when you enter the order you know that you are choosing "carrier". It should work just like the credit "terms" pull down only with attributes.
Hope this helps!!
Would love to - email@example.com
As always thank you for all of your suggestions. We are now in the scoping stages of this development and would like to seek feedback from interested users. Please either respond to this message or schedule an individual session with one of our reps to discuss your requirements. All feedback welcome.
Yes! This would be awesome for many uses:
