Working as a Community

We want to encourage Circle users to work together.

Outside of programming we add little value, so don't be afraid to pick up the phone and talk to each other.

With the recent agency addition we have pushed this a bit further and added a Public Change Log. The idea behind this is to enable you to call the store making the change directly, if you think it is wrong. What the agency should be is not always clear, so working it out between yourselves helps a lot.

All up, we want you to formulate the policy that we will then try to enforce with programming and guidance. Using a peer-to-peer approach to do this should be more efficient than the current centralised approach, where you contact us for these sorts of issues.

New Features & What's Next

At this time of year our focus is on stability and speed rather than big feature roll outs, so there are no new features this month.

We are, however, some way down the track on: 

  • The Rails 4 system upgrade
  • The ability to pay invoices with Cr notes
  • The new billing system
  • The ability for suppliers to independently update stock numbers
