Version 21 (released 2015-12-11)

New functionality:

The user now selects “Print” and if the Consignment hasn’t been validated it gets validated and printed (based on setup in LogTrade). After validation the Consignment is no longer editable until it’s reopened. When a Consignment is reopened it is sent to LogTrade back to status “Saved” (formally called “New”). Printing a Consignment that is already validated will prompt the user for what to be printed. If “Print Method” is not “LogTrade Controlled” the user use “Send” to send the Consignment (and print if the send method corresponds to the print method setting). If no print command is specified in the setup the user is prompted what to print, otherwise what’s in the setup will print.

  • Weight and Volume was not calculated correctly on package spec lines if the setup was to calculate weight/volume from Source Document. This only caused a problem if the user opened the Package Specification Lines on such a consignment before sending it to LogTrade (not that likely to occur).

Bug fixes/changes:

  • When using the Drop Down on Consignment Line to select Package Type all Package Types was shown in the RTC. This has been corrected so that only Package Types marked as “default” in LogTrade are shown (as in the Classic Client). To show also the Package Types that are not marked as default the user must choose “Advanced” to open the list of Package Types and remove the filter on “Default”. Please observe that the filter on Default does not work in 2009 RTC due to a platform bug.

The consignment will have one “main document” and other source documents of the same type for the same recipient can be linked. Linking can be done manually, from a Warehouse Shipment or by using a function on the Consignment to find Source Documents for the same recipient to add as Linked Documents.

Version 9 (released 2013-09-11)

New functionality:

  • The 2013 version of LogTrade Connect now uses .Net for all web service communication, XML file handling etc. All COM variables and code has been replaced by .Net equivalents. This means that NAV Server can run the functionality in LogTrade Connect to use in situations with automation, handheld devices, web client etc.

  • Declared Value and Declared Currency Code has been added to consignment.
  • Default settings on logtradeconnect.se/public are now version aware in that sense that every new release of LTC will suggest a different filename. Version 09 will suggest importing defaultsettings_09.xml. The existing defaultsettings.xml is for version 08.

Version 6.01 (released 2013-02-19)

This is a hotfix to address some issues mainly in file open dialogs. The changes in this hotfix only apply to setup functions. No processing logic for consignments is changed.

Read more

Version 6 (released 2013-02-18)

This version is from a user perspective mainly about services. The setup of default services and dynamic calculations of service parameter values makes it possible to automatically link services to consignments and calculate parameters for the services. This version also supports agent offices received from LogTrade through web services based on recipient address.

For a partner the setup wizard has been more streamlined and easier to use with file open dialogs, easier import of shipping agent mapping data etc.

New functionality:

  • It is now possible to specify more parameters for default services. It is now possible to use also these fields when setting up the prerequisites for a default parameter to be applied:
    – Document Type
    – Source Type
    – Source No
    – Address Code
    The default services are also easier to work with since it now is Shipping Agent and Shipping Agent service that are used instead of Forwarder and product when setting up the default services.
  • Calculated Default Parameter Values are now supported. The following calculations are supported:
    – Outstanding Order Value
    – Qty. to Ship Value
    – Company Bank Giro No.
    – Company SWIFT Code
    – Language Code
    – Order Gross Weight
    – E-mail Address
    – Mobile Phone No.
    – Currency Code
    – Reference
  • It is now possible to setup generic service shortcuts for e.g. e-mail which is linked to all similar services in all products. It is also possible to setup default services on different combinations of Shipping Agent/-Service, Source Document Type, Source Document No., Source Type, Source No and Source Address Code. This way it is possible to setup that e.g. an e-mail advice service shall be used for a specific customer regardless of shipping agent/-service. It is also possible to use this default setup for specific documents so e.g. a salesperson gives instructions to be used by the yet not created consignment. On the shortcuts (inherited down to default services) it is possible to set if the service is mandatory or if the user can confirm a missing service. This way it is possible to setup mandatory services for e.g. a customer or that e.g. CashOnDelivery is mandatory.
  • It is now possible to look up a list of available Agent Offices in the field “Agent Office ID” on a consignment. The lookup triggers a web service request to LogTrade which returns the available agent offices based on the location of the recipient. It is also possible to display an agent office in Google Maps (or any other web-based map service accepting longitude and latitude as parameters).
  • It is now possible to setup default send action on individual forwarder products that will (if set) override the Default Send Action in LogTrade Setup.

Version 5 (released 2012-11-30)

This version introduces the Customs Invoice, a new setting for default Shipment Date on consignment and a new separate field for Sender Reference. Besides that, there are bug fixes and GUI enhancements.

New functionality:

  • Customs Invoice is now supported.
    It is now possible to create a customs invoice linked to a consignment automatically (if there is a source document) or manually given that the recipients country code is not blank and not an EU country. The Customs Invoice is printed together with the other LogTrade documents.
  • The default shipment date can now be based on the source document.
  • Sender Reference now has its own field on the consignment instead of using Source Document No. This makes it possible to create consignments without using a source document where the Shipping Agent Service requires a sender reference (such as DHL Express). By default, the Source Document No. is used to populate the Sender Reference field.

Version 4 (released 2012-11-14)

New functionality:

  • Bookings is now supported. Bookings can be LogTrade controlled, Automatic on validation, Automatic on release or Manual. Booking can be done both from the Consignment Worksheet and from a Consignment. Please note that not all Shipping Agents support bookings.

Read more

Version 3 (release 2012-11-08)

This version introduces a new export/import which will make setup easier since the shipping agent mapping now can be exported/imported in the Setup Wizard. Besides that this version is mostly about corrections/adjustments in pages for 2009 RTC and 2013.

New functionality:

  • It is now possible to export and import the mapping table for forwarders/products and shipping agents/-services. Export can be done at any time, but import is only possible when Setup wizard has been launched and mapping lines created and before settings has been implemented. Once the wizard has been run it is no longer possible to import mapping. The import will only update existing mapping lines so it’s possible to have a generic mapping supporting all forwarders even though the customer does not have all these in the LogTrade License.

Read more

Version 2 (released 2012-10-25)

New functionality:

  • Print Queues are no longer maintained manually. In the print queue list, there is now a function to get Print Queues from LogTrade. Print Queues are also imported automatically when running the Setup Wizard and if there is only one print queue that print queue will automatically be set as default print queue in the setup.

Version 1 (released 2012-10-19)

  • Demo Mode has been introduced. It is a setting in advanced settings. Once enabled these changes occur:
  • Consignment No. will be set as a timestamp instead of using a No. series
  • Consolidation ID will be set as ‘DEMO’+[timestamp]. This together with Consignment No. as a

    timestamp will make it possible for partners to use a generic demo account at LogTrade.

  • Package Tracking from released consignment will use hard coded dummy data to enable demo of

    package tracking without the need to create real consignments and have those transferred to

    Control Tower.

  • Icons and actions have been updated on pages for released and archived consignments
  • Swedish translation in Package Tracking corrected
  • Control Tower password removed from setup since Control Tower web link is stored on the

    consignment

  • “Control Tower Interface URL” in setup renamed to “Control Tower ERP Interface URL”
