Custom Reports & Extracts Menu Update

Also, if a custom extract is flagged as a favourite, you also get the option to preview the data in a table onscreen before downloading the CSV file.
You don't have to mark all custom reports and extracts as favourites, as all custom reports and extracts available to your company remain available via Reports & Analysis > Custom Reports & Extracts...
Supplier Orders: Force Entry Of Invoice Number On Delivery
Per supplier, you can now force entry of an Invoice Number when updating the state of a supplier order to the Delivered state.
To enable this, within the Ordering Details tab of the setup page for a Supplier, select the Invoice Number Required On Delivery checkbox.
If this is enabled for a supplier, an order cannot be delivered until the invoice number is entered.
Supplier Orders: Option To Bypass The Ordered State
In some cases, supplier orders may not need to be sent via Centegra Plus. For example, if the order was placed over the phone or via a suppliers online portal.
If these orders are entered on delivery, you can now bypass the Ordered state to speed up this process.
To enable this, within the Ordering Details tab of the setup page for a Supplier, select the Allow Direct Deliveries checkbox.
If this is enabled for a supplier, the [DELIVER] button becomes available for orders in Preparation state. (Note that the [ORDER] buttons remain available, should it be required.)
If [DELIVER] is selected whilst the order is in Preparation state, you'll be provided with the total cost of the order and will be prompted to enter the delivery date and invoice number.
Selecting [CONFIRM DELIVERY] then progresses the order straight from Preparation to Delivered state.
Option To Select Location When Creating Wastage
For sites with multiple locations, when Creating Wastage Via The Back Office you can now select which location the wastage is for.
Note that when Creating Wastage Via The Operations Dashboard, there is no need to select the location as it is automatically determined based on the till that the operations dashboard is associated with.
Added Option To Assign Alcohol Flag
For menus published to Just Eat and Uber Eats, products can now be flagged as containing alcohol, which in turn displays the necessary age restriction warnings on the menu platform.
To do so:
- Create a public Product Attribute called "Alcohol".
- Assign the attribute to the relevant products.
When the menus are published, products that are assigned the "Alcohol" attribute will be flagged as containing alcohol within the menu.
Digital Kitchen Management
Production Planner User Interface Improvements
The layout individual sections within Production Plans list has been improved.
Timeslots within each section of the plan are now split into subsections so it's easier to see what needs to be prepared at each stage of the day.
The timeslot name and times are shown in the subsection header.
For production plans that contain multiple sections, the option to print all sections in one go is now available by selecting [PRINT PLAN] at the top of the production plan. (The ability to print sections individually is still available.)

Email Alias For Centegra Plus Users

- Scheduled Report Emails
- Password Reset Emails
If this is the case, you can now define an Alias Email Address against an existing Centegra Plus user.
If an email alias is assigned, any outbound emails from Centegra Plus will be sent to the alias email address instead of the login email address.
Visibility of any alias email addresses defined is available within the users list like so:
Setup & Administration
Pricing Update For Tax Exclusive Pricing
Against a Centegra Plus price level, you can now specify if prices assigned to that price level within Centegra Plus should be exclusive of tax by default.
