Updates to inFlow Cloud

We’re constantly improving the inFlow Cloud experience and we generally update the system on Tuesday evenings (EST). If we expect any downtime, we’ll update our status page to let you know.

The good news is your subscription includes all of the updates and fixes we release. Here’s how to make sure you’re in the latest and greatest version of inFlow Cloud:

Updated customer and vendor designs   

We’ve given customers and vendors a fresh coat of paint and updated features in the web app.

Lists now have higher contrast and a cleaner layout, which makes it easier to read them at a glance. We’ve also split up customer and vendor records with a tabbed interface.

The brand-new order history tabs show you the latest orders from that customer or vendor, and you can even click on the order numbers to load them up in a new tab. Vendor products have also moved to their own tab and are even easier to use than before.

This is another small step to make the inFlow experience even better on the web, and we hope you like the changes!

You’ll now see three lists when viewing sales or purchase orders: Open, Unpaid, and All.

  Print labels from your smartphone

You can now print labels from your smartphone in a few ways:

  • While viewing a purchase order, tap the Actions button to print labels
  • While viewing a product, tap the Actions button to print labels
  • While receiving you can choose to print labels as you receive or print labels after you’ve received everything

This process should feel very similar to printing labels from the web app. You can still choose from virtually any printer you’ve connected to inFlow and print labels that you’ve designed in inFlow Label Designer. For more info, check out our latest blog post on mobile label printing.

 Big improvements to Shopify and WooCommerce sync

We’ve improved our sync with Shopify and WooCommerce.

For both platforms you can push images, barcodes, weight, prices, and sale prices (or “Compare at” prices for Shopify).

You can now pull in products from Shopify or WooCommerce to automatically create them in inFlow. This is great for starting fresh with a new store, or for updating inFlow with new products you’ve added on your ecommerce site.

And inFlow will pull in any pending orders from within the last year.

Last but not least, we’ve streamlined the integration settings. You can now create new inFlow locations from right within the settings window, and settings are now split into tabs for easier navigation.

General improvements:

  •  We’ve updated references to Extensiv Integration Manager (previously CartRover)

Stuff we’ve fixed:

  •  We fixed an issue that prevented new accounts from connecting to Extensiv Integration Manager.

  •  We fixed a bug that prevented you from replacing an existing product image in the web app.
  •  Exported reports will no longer show the order URL in the Order # column.
