General Update – 10 November

An easier way to change a project’s client – Update

You can now reassign a project to another client (and change the ‘Primary Client’ in the project’s ‘People’ sub-tab) by changing the ‘Project Client’ in the Project Overview’s Project Details.

1. From the Projects Overview sub-tab, click on the Project Details ‘Edit’ button.
2. Go to the ‘Project Client’ drop-down, select the new client to reassign the project to, and click Save

Note: There are two instances in which the ‘Project Client’ dropdown will be ‘locked out’ for changing – the fix for these are detailed in this RAVE Help article.

Expected new lead close date customisation – Update

  • Previously, we set the default expected ‘WON’ closed date on a build to 6 months, but this can now be customised for the Clients who want to set up a custom expected close date for their business. A new setting has been added under Branch Settings / Client Settings / Expected close date.  Based on this setting, when new leads are added, the default expected close date is set to 1, 3, 6, 9 or 12 months.

Sub Opportunity column added to lost clients report – Update

  • We’ve added the Sub Opportunity column to the Lost Clients table to improve Lost Client reporting.

Sorting functionality added to project files – Update

  • Project files can now be sorted by name, owner, date, or latest version.
  • Everyone including contractors and clients can sort the files they have access to.
  • The files will be sorted by date/latest files by default.

Allow users to create Checklist Templates – Update

  • Users can now create Checklist Templates from the Site/Build/Templates sub tab.

Message Actions Recorded in the Audit Trail – Update

  • The primary assignee is now displayed on the schedule calendar task detail pop-up.

Accounts Notification Settings Tab – Update

  • When the Contract Price has been updated
  • When a Progress Payment has been requested
  • When a Progress Payment amount has been changed

Increase the field size for Purchase Order delivery phone number details – Rave Financial Fix

  • Previously, we had a limit of 32 characters for the Delivery Phone attribute on purchase orders – the delivery phone number was being cut off when printing the purchase order.
  • The limit has now been increased to 50 characters.

Enforce Signed Contract Validation – Rave Update

  • Signed Contract Price validation is now provided  when users change a client/build opportunity to “won”  i.e. in these instances RAVE will now only accept anything greater than $0. 

Unify information shown when creating an order based on another order – Rave Financial Update

  • When creating orders based on other orders (e.g. bills from quotes), the supplier name & category are now displayed.

A Bills ‘Due Date’ default is now set to Net 20 EOM – Rave Financial Update

  • When adding a bill, the default due date is now set as Net 20 EOM (the 20th of next month).

Allow users to select the Paid Date when marking Bills as paid – Rave Financial Update

  • Users can now select the amount and the paid date – when marking bills as paid from the ‘Bills In’ page.

Let users select Supplier Credit notes when creating Client Invoices – Rave Financial Update

  • Currently, we only let users select Bills when creating Client Invoices, this is now extended to select Credit Notes as well. When a Bill/Credit Note is selected, based on the total of the Credit Notes & Bills, RAVE generates a Client Invoice if it is a positive, otherwise we generate a Credit Note.
