Sales Channels are becoming Integrations

As of February 2024, Sales Channels are becoming Integrations. This change is in preparation for our future integration with Quickbooks and will house all E-commerce and Accounting integrations going forward.

For now, all functionality around sales channels will work the same as usual - the only change at this stage is naming. We'll be working on updating our tutorials, videos, and help articles to reflect this change over the coming weeks. If you have any questions about this change, please get in touch!

Assign manufactures to your shop floor team

Our newest enhancement allows you to assign any manufacture to a specific user in your account. This provides you with the ability to more closely track who is working on which batch, and in conjunction with our new production status feature give you a more complete picture of your production process.

You can also use our new Assignee filter on the Manufactures list view page to quickly filter manufactures by assignee to see exactly who is working on each manufacture and progress made.

Manufacture picklists now factor in your existing product stock levels

We've also enhanced our popular Order Manufacture Picklist Report to factor in your current product on hand stock levels into the required materials calculations.

This means that the report can be used to create a comprehensive list of materials required to fulfil your order(s) based on your current product stock levels.

This setting can also be toggled on or off, to provide you with the complete flexibility you need for your manufacturing workflows.

Better tools to keep track of your materials on order

We've created a bunch of powerful new tracking abilities on your material purchases: see at a glance what is due to arrive this week, which material deliveries are behind schedule, and more using our purchase filtering improvements.

Bulk import your material purchases via CSV

We've made an enhancement to our purchase CSV importer to allow you to automatically associate a purchase with a material: making it super simple to create your material purchases in bulk.

You'll now find three new fields available over on your Expense importer mapping page: SKU, name and lot number.

Configure auto manufacturing for specific variations

It's now possible to create situations where specific variations are configured to automanufacture. This is great for situations where you have different maker workflows for the same product.

Production statuses for your manufactures

Our new production status feature allows you to track the progress of your manufactures in a granular way, from Not Started, In Progress right through to Completed.

This allows you to use our Manufactures feature to create work orders for your team: material and product stock changes will only be made when a manufacture is marked as Completed.

Our new production status feature gives you the control to create manufactures before you make them.

For manufactures that have not been Completed, your manufacture screen will now display the available and required amounts for all materials - allowing you to see at a glance any stock deficiencies and take action where necessary.

Summaries of your material purchasing and usage

A summary of your usage and purchasing activity can now be found on your material page. This provides a view of the rate which you purchase and manufacture with this particular material.

This data can also be helpful when creating inventory forecasts (i.e. planning ahead for future purchases and manufacturing).

Your Order Manufacture Picklist Report now handles multiple orders

The Order Manufacture Picklist report now generates material fulfillment details for multiple orders at once. To select multiple orders to include in your Order Manufacture Picklist Report, pick the desired date range you'd like to include and click Run Report- it's that simple!

Keep track of your material purchases with Expected Delivery Dates (ETAs)

Expected delivery dates allow you to keep track of when you'll receive your POs of materials and allows you to identify late deliveries at a glance.

Check out a walk-through of this feature and more details below!

About Expected Delivery Dates (ETAs)

See your materials in transit using On Order counts

Marking a Material Expense as Not Received will add your purchased materials to the On Order count on your material summary page and your individual material pages. Once you receive your delivery, edit your PO, and that amount will move over to your On Hand material count.

Our new UI begins to roll out across your sign-in and settings pages

We have begun to roll out our new UI architecture and technology from May. Our first areas to tackle have been your sign-in and settings pages.

This new look will slowly roll out across the rest of CB as we complete and test each section. If you have any feedback on the new look, please let us know!

Our new look forms

Expenses are now Purchases

As of June 22nd, your Expenses tab became "Purchases." This change will enable us to continue building forward with further functionality around how purchases work in Craftybase and also allows us to simplify the UX around receiving your materials: the aim is to make receiving and tracking your POs faster and easier.

Expenses become Purchases.

For now, all functionality around expenses works precisely the same as usual - the only change at this stage is naming. We'll be working on updating our tutorials, videos, and help articles to reflect this change over the coming weeks. If you have any questions about this change, please do get in touch!
