Material Facts Spacing Now when you type your Material Facts,
your web page should mirror the exact layout! Before PlantX
compiled all of the line breaks to one paragraph, now you can
have multiple paragraphs in your Material Facts
Report Criteria Order Reports now have a subbed/not subbed
filter that will allow you to remove substituted line items
from an Order Report
User Enhancements We enhanced the Web User window to get the
most out of your PlantX hosted website! You can now view Qty
Ordered and Order Value on the web users screen. Add this
column by clicking the Table Settings icon and choosing Select
Columns. You may also notice two new icons, these are
"Send Cart Reminder" and "Clear Cart". The Cart
Reminder is an email that you can send to Web Users after they
have abandoned their cart. It is shown that Reminder emails are
a huge conversion tool for prospective customers.
Finally, we have added new report fields for Web Users to build
accurate reports on possible sales. You can find a copy of the
report fields here.
Truck Notes Fix The Truck Notes field on the Trucks screen
will now line wrap rather than expand the width of the field.
Load Tab Column Choices We have added "Weight" as a
Column Choice on the Load tab of an Order.

efficiently manage your Nursery stock. We are in the process of
enhancing the way our software is laid out to visually
communicate the work flow.

made to the Inspect Log. These can be viewed under the History
tab of a Supply.
Rapid Location Entry You can now enter a sequence of
locations all at one from the Location screen. Simply highlight

numbering locations. For example, 001 - 200.
Change to Tag Designer The Order Item tag will now be called
the Retail Tag that includes two new fields: "Retail
SKU" and "Retail UPC". Both barcodes refer to the
customer supplied UPC or SKU.
Deprecated Field Notice We have added a new feature that will
notify you when your report uses a deprecated report field
name. Deprecated field names are report fields that are less
preferable to other field names that we created since then. The
report will have the correct field name suggested. You can then
choose to edit the field yourself or give us a call and we can
fix the field and get you back on track.
Permission Changes for Archived Documents Previously users
could change ledger documents even after they were archived. To
prevent accounting errors, we disabled the ability to edit
documents after they have been archived. You must first
"un-archive" the document by highlighting the document
in the Ledger Archive and clicking the blue box with a cross
through it titled "Restore Entry".
Improved Customer Import Import customers with a .CSV file
even easier! Simply upload the .CSV file to PlantX and map the
columns to the columns in your spreadsheet. If you need help
importing new contacts, feel free to give us a call!
Tag Labels We have added the Catalog Item UPC and renamed the
Order Item UPC to "Retail UPC". The barcode will
resemble a boxed gradient to give you better control over the
size of the barcode.
Column Sorting in Inventory Most of you are familiar with the
column sorting in PlantX. We have extended this to our
Inventory screen as well. If there are any additional columns
you would like to see, please call and let us know!
Multiple Orders from Inventory Screen Expedite your Order
process by toggling "Sub" to multiple Orders at once.
Note: this will not make any substitution changes to the Order,
it will simply post the line item as "Subbed".
Changes The team at PlantX have been making big changes to
the look and feel of your websites! Catalog, Comparison, and
some Availability pages have been redeveloped with Angular code
to speed up your page and increase user engagement. If there
are any additional changes you would like to make, feel free to
give us a call.

the Label Designer tabs when switching between screens. We have
fixed this bug so each screen will render their own design

bar of an Order, the Order Item information will now show the
full UPC code.

Downloadable Reports will sort from most recently created to
older reports. Remember to check "Disclose" when
printing a report so your Users can find them under their Order
Hidden Locations We have hidden locations from all views when
you hide a location from Action | Maintain | Locations. Before,
we showed all locations, hidden or not, for historical
reference. Now, you must first "un-hide" a location to
select hidden locations from a drop down.
Hidden Sales Reps We have hidden Sales Reps from all views
when you hide a rep from Action | Maintain | Sales Reps.

list is being used on an order, even after you may have created
it! To reset the pricing of your Order Items, go to the

drop down options. Next, click Edit | Reset Prices, then the
base prices of the Order Items will change. This is perfect to
use in conjunction with the Batch Pricing Change feature.

order from the Orders screen. Highlight the orders whose price
list you wish to change and right click or click the yellow
triangle on the right hand toolbar. This is perfect to use in
conjunction with our Reset Pricing feature.

feature will benefit you. You can now override the PO# of an
order from the Loads tab in the Order window. Double click the
Load that you would like to assign a PO# to and enter the new
PO#, click OK when you finish. You can reference this number on
reports by using [load.ponumber].
Cities as Column Choice You can now view your customers' city
as a column choice. Right click the columns to change the order
and appearance of the columns and drag "Cities" from Hidden to
Locations under Action menu Locations are seeing much more
attention now than when the software was built over 15 years
ago. We have decided to take Locations out from the Maintain
sub-menu and instead move it under the Action menu.
Merge Pricings and Setting Tab in Customers Window Our lonely
pricing tab on the Customer window has moved to the Settings
tab. This will free up some space on your window and improve
readability of the tabs.
Highlight Single Line item Our goal is to help you run your
business as efficiently as possible. We have improved the
search on our Orders screen so that when a search filters to a
single entry, the entry will highlight.
Search by UPC On the Inventory screen you can search for your
materials by Name, SKU, and now UPC. Now you can find your
plant no matter what!
Calculate Load Footage with Weight Previously our members used
a special Load Factor to calculate the estimated footage for
their material. You can now use Weight to help calculate the
same footage. Enter the weight on the Misc tab of the Catalog
Item and then enter the same weight as the Load Footage. Our
new formula will translate your weights into footage for you to
use when building trucks.

increasing the SKU field on the Catalog Item from 10 characters

the first material picture for a report. The new field is
[parms.firstpicture] and will only return the first picture

now included the original size and the new size in the
Adjustment Notes. Now you can visually inspect a catalog item
and see the growth of that plant.

filter and improved our Documents search page under Action |
Documents. We also fixed a Windows bug that was truncating the
Account name on the Info tab of their Order.
Currency Field on Customer We have added a Currency field that
can be filled with any currency abbreviation. This field can be
referenced for reports to international customers that need the
currency defined so they can pay appropriately.
'Mix-in' Supplies You can now view Supply information
on a Shipping report by toggling the Mix-in Supplies check box
on the Report Criteria. This will be helpful when you want to
compare current allocations to supply numbers or reference any
part of the supply on your report.
Inventory from Allocation Tab Currently members can view the

highlighting the material and clicking the 'View

Allocation tab so you can quickly view the Inventory

inside the Load Manager with our new running Footage

allocations. Now you can eliminate the guess work when building
loads or trucks, just highlight your materials and start
Automate Post Load/Order Invoiced Every member now has the
option to automate posting their load or order invoiced.
Currently, there is an extra step between creating an Invoice
and marking the load or order as invoiced. Now, in your Member
Settings under the Accounting tab is a toggle to automate this
process. Once you toggle the setting on, any time you create an
Invoice the load or order will post itself as Invoiced.

come, first serve basis? This new feature is geared for you.
You will now have the ability to Auto Allocate multiple orders
from the Order list by pushing the gear icon on the right hand
Detailed Report Descriptions Communicate easier with better
report descriptions inside of the Reports window. Now, you can
see the account that the report was printed for in the
Description field of your report list!

have changed the Report Names to better describe the report you
are looking at. From the Reports window, you can tell at a
glance who printed what report for which customer.

switching, we have added the customer ledger balance to the Info
tab inside of an Order.

split from the original order and push the split truck button.
Now, enter the quantity of each Order Item and assign them to a

Cart Page We decided to redesign your Cart page to ensure the
most online orders. User experience is the next big thing when
it comes to E-commerce, if your customers are happy ordering
online, they tend to order more.
Partial Percentages Previously PlantX would round a
percentage up to the next whole number, we want to be more
accurate than that. Now, PlantX will calculate and also accept
partial percentages in the Surcharge and Discount field.
Time Stamp to Web Carts Your customers have been shopping at
all hours of the night and now we implemented a time stamp to
prove it! You can now see the last log-in time on a Web Cart
from the Web Users window and inside of the Web Users reports.
Try running this report every week to get a detailed view of
any abandoned carts.

Order Status history inside of the History tab of an Order. Now

the order audits on the History tab.

your Sales Representatives now by using the Sales Rep Edition

Description length inside of the Ledger tab of a Customer to
250 characters. You can enter document numbers, notes or
anything else that will help you describe the ledger document.

of assigning an internal Account Manager. This option is
perfect if your nursery has a large administrative staff and
you want to establish who the liason would be between your
nursery and your customer.

our Material Facts report! You can find the Cultivar of a plant
in the tree table view of the Report Criteria.

of your Report Criteria there is a radio button that will toggle
which option you would like to choose for Supplies. We have

to better understand PlantX vocabulary we are changing the

"Disclose". Internal Report documents will be can be
made available by toggling "Disclose", while Public
items like Material Facts and Pictures can be shown on the web

feature! Members will now have the ability to merge allocations
within the same load on the Load Manager Tab of an Order.

count inventory. Luckily for PlantX users we have the roll-over
function inside of Crops. We have improved upon this to allow
the Patent information to roll over with your Catalog Items into
a new Crop.
Squashed Bugs We fixed an overflow issue from the Web Settings
window inside of the Pictures tab. Previously if, by accident, a
large picture was uploaded it would fill the entire window
blocking out the buttons to revert your settings and try again.
We included a scroll box just in case situations like these
arise. Now if you upload a large picture, it will be contained
within a scroll box giving you the ability to revert your

our Credit Memos. Now you can type as much information as you
want without being cut off.

of the load without effecting any catalog items! This feature
will come in handy for anyone who may dig bigger root balls in
different seasons and don't want the hassle of changing the
catalog item weight twice a year.

that's why we decided to add Order Alerts. Now, when the
Requested Ship Date is chronologically earlier than the Order
Date a pop-up box will alert you of the mistake.
Sales Reps from View Tired of seeing the same Sales Rep you
worked with long ago? Now you will be able to Hide Sales Reps
from view. Similar to how you can already hide Materials and
Catalog Items, simply toggle the "View" box next to the Rep's
name to Hide a rep. If you need to ever view them, you can go to
