When Was Your Copy of flowerSoft Last Updated?
A lot of times I will write a post about a new feature and when you try it in your system it does not work.
The reason for that might be because I have not gotten to update your flowerSoft copy yet.
To find out when your copy of flowerSoft was last updated, go to the New Orders menu…
and hit the grave accent/tilde key (left of the number 1)…
The Last FSS Update date is the last time all your flowerSoft programs were updated. The Last POS Update date is the date your copy of the POS program was compiled (revised).
These dates help you know why a new feature or bug fix has not made it to your copy of flowerSoft.
If I write a post on 11/25/2014 talking about a new feature or an improvement made and your Last FSS Update was on 11/15/2014, chances are you do not have that feature or improvement yet.
If it is something you feel you need to have ASAP, drop me a line and I’ll try to update your system as soon as possible.
If you do not have this feature, the one about finding your flowerSoft update dates, then your version of flowerSoft is pretty old.
Attaching Pictures to Delivery Confirmations
I thought I had written a post on this but I can’t find it.
Recently I made a change to the delivery confirmations program that would allow you to attach up to 5 different pictures to a delivery confirmation.
Part of this change involved creating a new folder to hold the pictures. This folder should be created in the \FSROOT\EMAILS folder and be called PICTURES.
For a picture or pictures to be sent out along with the email confirmation, the picture(s) must be placed in the \FSROOT\EMAILS\PICTURES folder.
The picture(s) should be named using the following format: invoice_number.jpg
So if 5 pictures were to be attached to a delivery confirmation for invoice number 64103, the pictures should be named as follows:
The delivery confirmation would then look something like this…
Again, the most important part here is that the pictures be placed in the \FSROOT\EMAILS\PICTURES folder and that they be named as shown above.
