November has been a busy month at AroFlo, with our Developers continuing work on several important enhancements that will roll in the coming months (see the Pipeline section, below). For those with crews in their business, you’ll be pleased to know that crew schedules now display on the calendar for individual resources.
We also released a blog post to share what AroFlo staff have been doing to stay mentally healthy during Melbourne’s extended lock-down, and we rolled some smaller enhancements:
- Office: Inventory Stock Activity Credit Column
- Office: Calendar Schedules for Crews
- Projects: Export your Gantt Charts
- Field: Compliance Alerts
- AroFlo Wellbeing: Tactics for promoting good workplace mental health throughout COVID
- Field Tip: 10-second setup to a faster login
- What’s in the Pipeline?
Inventory: Stock Activity Credit Column
You’ll be pleased to know that there have been some background improvements to how AroFlo controls stock levels.
As part of these improvements, we’ve added a ‘Credits’ column in the Stock Activity view. This column displays adjustments for credit note stock activity, such as items returned from your client or items sent back to your supplier.
Calendar Schedules: Crews
Good news for those working with crews within their business! When you schedule a task to a crew, it will now also display in the calendar for users or assets which form that crew.
Note: this feature is only available with the new calendar.
Projects: Export your Gantt Charts
Many customers using Gantt Charts to manage their projects will be thrilled to now export all or part of their Gantt Chart’s.
Simply click the Export button, choose your format – either PDF or PNG – and the date range. It’s that easy.
If you’re new to Gantt Charts, you can learn more about their functionality and how they can benefit your business in our recent blog post.
Field: Compliance Alerts
Have you noticed the clean new look for Compliance Alerts in AroFlo Field?
You can access Compliance Alerts via the main menu > Compliance > Alerts.
Tactics for promoting good workplace mental health throughout COVID
2020 has certainly been a difficult year for everyone! While we manage being apart, we believe it is as important as ever to prioritise good mental health and staying connected to friends, family, and peers, as this helps us feel inspired, motivated, and supported.
If your workplace is anything like ours, you no doubt enjoyed spending time with each other during working hours and outside of work before lockdown. It makes sense then, that continuing this interconnectivity while working apart has been of extra importance for any workplace, as a long-standing culture of togetherness has so many benefits to both physical and mental health in the long term.
Take a look at some of the creative methods our AroFlo team developed to stay connected while remaining apart.
