Well... okay then! Please read below for some more information on what we've pumped into this latest release. If any questions please don't hestitate to contact the Help Desk, otherwise, feel free to update today and ENJOY!

 

Features and Fixes - Soil Health

  • Added ability to create a sample order without having to input a Purchase Order Number.
    Can anyone say "left my PO on the desk again"? This new feature allows a user to be able to complete sample order details while collecting a sample and then adding Purchase Order Number when able. A Sample Order will be prevented from being synced until a PO number has been entered – A new icon has been added to the Organisation screen to list all orders that do not have a Purchase Order number
    .
  • Change to prevent Sub Soil samples from being displayed in the Sample list.
    Sub Soil samples will be displayed only when selecting Parent Barcode.
  • Fixed Sample depth from and depth to from being optional.
    Updated to match  SoilMate desktop where sample depths are mandatory , this will prevent sample orders from being sync’d from CornerPost and losing critical sample depth data that is required to determine Parent Barcode and associate sub soil samples.
  • Change to auto-populate the From depth of a profile sample based on the previous samples To depth
    You've entered it once, we see no need to make you type it again. Your next sample in a paddock will automatically assume the 'from' depth of the previous 'to'. So if you've entered a 0-30, your next sample will pre-populate a starting depth of 30
  • Fixed Paddock ID from being lost when adding sample orders from Organization screen
    This was a bug that was identified when the 'new ordering system' was created for the Mobile App, that allowed users to add a barcode first (from the Organisation screen), then choose paddock later. The bug has now been fixed, taking us back to two great options for sample ordering
  • Fixed Null Description in Sample Order being displayed as (null) after sync.
    Description if left blank will now appear blank and not have the value Null displayed.
  • Changed Description in Sample Order to be optional.
    A Description can still be added but will no longer be required when creating Sample Orders.
  • Fixed Sync: update is not pulled to mobile device consistently
    On some devices the CornerPost retrieve showed inconsistencies, and not all information was being processed due to date/time stamp differences between the two platforms. This has been fixed
  • Group names in picker list are now ordered by names
  • Fixed barcode numbers from being used more than once.
    A check has been added to prevent a barcode from being used more than once. This will prevent sample orders from being sync’d with duplicates.
  • Fixed in iOS7: Transparent Slide-up picker
    This one is really an aesthetics thing, but with the new iOS update came some new colours. Our Laboratory picker in particular was transparent, which made it very difficult to read. We have adapted our App to complement the new iOS version
  • Added barcode reader functionality to soil health (iPhone only)
    Super amazing! You can now use the camera on your iPhone to scan in the sample bag barcode, rather than typing. Simply touch the new icon to the right of the sample order detail screen, point your camera at the barcode and let it do the 'typing' for you

  • Link Pin on the Map to a Diary entry
    It is now possible to drop a pin on the map, and link this to an observation. Great for sampling locations, bug infestations or water-logging events.

    Added "Volume (L)" beside "Water Rate (L/ha):xx" in the Spray Rec report. The calculation is "volume" = "total area" x "water rate"
