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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
