Works and Editions

V136873 - Improved search functionality for Group Identifiers

A new table of Identifiers has been added to the Group/Current Group/Details Screen in place of the ISSN Field.


This will allow multiple identifiers to be linked to each group - as long as the Group Type has ‘Has Collection Identifiers?’ flag enabled.


Additionally the Group Advanced Search screen has also been modified - the existing ISSN field has been removed and the following filters have been added.

  • Group Identifier Type

  • Group Identifier

The ISSN field has also been removed from the Group Level reports and additional columns and filters have been added called ‘Group Identifier.’


This functionality is available to everybody but may require configuration in Maintenance. If you would like to find out more about having it enabled, please raise a Tracker call quoting V136873 or speak to your customer contact.


V139611 - Future-proofing of user date preferences

When user preferences are set to a date format that shows two digits to indicate the year (e.g 27-Aug-21), entering a year from 50 to 99 will now be interpreted as a year in the 21st century (e.g 2099 for 99).


If you have any questions regarding this standardization, please raise a Tracker call quoting V139611 or speak to your customer contact.


ONIX

V137764 - Enhanced communication of Children’s Levels and Complexity Schemes information

Previously, sending Group-level Children’s Level and Complexity Schemes information in ONIX required specific configuration. In Quasar, if this information exists, and the scheme is set up to be included in ONIX, it will be sent without requiring any further setup.


If you have any questions regarding this improvement please raise a Tracker call quoting V137764, or speak to your customer contact.


V139649 - Updated ‘Different Date Options’ field on ONIX Recipients

The ONIX Recipients screen has been updated so that the ‘Different Date Options’ field is now mandatory if the ‘Use Different Date to Populate On Sale Date?’ flag is enabled. This ensures that the ONIX Wizard shows the exact values that will feed when this Recipient is selected.


If you have any questions regarding this improvement please raise a Tracker call quoting V139649, or speak to your customer contact.


Production

V138292 - Update Checkbox by Default option available on Batch Update Screens

A new option has been added to the system which allows the Update checkboxes on Batch Impression Group \ Batch Update screens to be ticked by default the first time the "Analysis" button is pressed, to prevent this having to be ticked every time the process is run.


To find out more please log a Tracker call quoting V138292 or get in touch with your Customer contact.


V128155 - Simplified functionality when working with Cost Groups

To simplify the Cost Groups area of the system, the Cost Group - Batch Impression Group \ Details screen has been updated so that the Product Types lookup is no longer mandatory. Leaving the Product Types lookup blank is now synonymous with choosing all Product Types.


Additionally, when adding Impressions or Provisional Costings to a Batch Impression Group, the search results are no longer restricted by Product Type if the Product Type lookup is blank.


For the purpose of differentiation, the Main Menu screen's Cost Group Panel has been updated to use two individual icons so that Cost Groups and Batch Impression Groups can be easily identified.


For further details please log a Tracker Call quoting V128155 or contact your Client Services representative.


V138262 - KPI Addendums

Minor alterations have been made to the layout of the KPI Target functionality,


The ‘Target’ appended to KPI Target has been removed from the Cost Group/Calculations screen, the Summary Table, the P&L Report and the table at the top of the Impression/Specification Sensitivity screen.


If you have any questions regarding this functionality please raise a Tracker call quoting V138262 or speak to your customer contact.


Contracts and Rights

V138365 - Cosmetic update when moving Customer Accounts

Please note this is only applicable for Customers using the Rights Module.


When using the ‘Move’ functionality to update which Contact record a Customer Account is associated with, the following note has been added to let users know that this will update Subrights Sold that are linked to the Customer Account:


‘NOTE: Moving this Customer Account will automatically update the Licensee on Subright Sold linked to this Customer Account.’


Please note that the functionality itself has not changed.


If you have any questions regarding this improvement please raise a Tracker call quoting V138365 or speak to your customer contact.


Royalties

V127411 - Extended functionality around Offset Sales quantities

This new Production and Royalties development can benefit customers with or without escalating Royalties, and with or without Provisional Costings.


This new functionality has added the ability to have an additional Offset Sales Quantity for each Sales line. This can be used to set Offset Sales where sales from another Edition or Product need to be considered, or where data is being imported into Biblio, and an initial Offset quantity is required.


Various changes have been made to the Impressions module, reports and more.

  • Person

  • Project

  • Print Order

  • Subrights Sold

This column will return the number of Assets for the selected category linked to the Report Entity.

V133661 - DAM comparison in Asset Viewer Window
