Field Special Feature in Equipment

Former Member

Could someone let me know where the field Special Feature is displayed in Netpoint 5.9.

I have entered some information in this field, but haven't found this yet in a screen.

If this field is not used is it possible that a field like this can be changed from a text field to a Filepicker field or is this not recommanded?

Best regards,

Tim

As far as I know, there is no way to display this field to the customer without using the API, it is primarily for administrator use.

What would you like to achieve with the file picker? Have an image of the machine? I would probably create a separate plugin that grabs an image based on machine selected (from the drop downs) the codebehind (dll's) can make changing fields kind of tricky, especially when it comes to upgrades.

Thanks for the answer.

Yes, we want to add a picture to a machine. We were just looking for the best solution. The option you have mentioned has allready been tested and works ok, but it also good to know if someone has a better alternative.

Could you also have a look at my question on the forum: Discount on Itemgroups.

In our situation: in Netpoint there is a category for each itemgroup from Business One. In Netpoint you can add a discount to a category, but it is not synchronised with the itemgroup in Business One. Probably because in Business One you have a table for speciale prices, a table for pricelists and a table for discount on itemgroups. In Netpoint all this is in one table.

I have been reading (note 1015790) that discount on itemgroups is not supported (yet), so we have to work around this. What would be a good solution for this. Suggestions will be ok as well.

Best regards,

How often do you change prices?

I have seen many companies run the initial sync to get all the pricing, then turn price synching off and configuring discounts in NetPoint. Then resynchronizing whenever pricelists are updated.

Some have written SQL queries to pull discounts from SBO special pricing and insert them into the NetPoint DB. The main problem is that Special Pricing is not exposed via the DI-API in SBO, WebTools 2007 FP1 will support special pricing, hierarchies and expansions.

We are also taking a look at the machine selector, so that it may function similar to what you have described.

Special prices and discount on itemgroups do not change often. Sometimes they don't change a whole year. We only use one pricelist (there are actually 10) and sometimes we have to alter some prices in this pricelist. There are about 400 customers who have special prices and discounts. Our SAP consultant has made an add-on in Microsoft Access to import this data into Business One (works brilliant!). This means that special prices and discounts are imported at the same time in Business One. We are thinking to let this table (which is always connected to the database of Business One) synchronise with Netpoint, because this table always has the latest data (e.g. when you add a new customer with special prices and discounts in Business One it's straight there in the table).

In our situation I think the best way to keep the pricelist, special pricing and discount up-to-date is to make a SQL query based on the story above.

Because the other problem is when you sync pricelists all the pricelists will be synchronised and we only use one. In Netpoint 5.9 there is no way to select which pricelist you want to synchronise and which one not.

I have also read that in a future release of Webtools there will be a full support of pricing. Does this mean that you can also synchronise discounts on itemgroups as well. Or did I misunderstood you're line: 'WebTools 2007 FP1 will support special pricing, hierarchies and expansions', which means that it is already possible to synchronise discount on itemgroups is the recent Webtools 2007?

If so, the only problem is, I believe, that Webtools is not available for The Netherlands yet!

Please, could you give me a short reply.

Hello Tim,

Currently WebTools 2007 does not support special pricing, FP1 (Feature Pack 1) which is tentatively set to go into ramp up in November, will support all special pricing.
