User Security Updates
User security has been significantly improved to greater protect the information in your CoPOS system. Both users and menu options throughout CoPOS can be set to specific security levels to restrict some users from using specified options. All User Security Options can be found in 10.11 from the main menu. User Security must be turned on in Field #5 of Option 9.1 (Enter/Edit Store Setting) before User Security Options will be applied. An overview of User Security can be found on the User Guide page in the Resources menu with the file name “User Security Overview.”
ATTENTION: The newest release of CoPOS, Version 3.6.5, is now available! There were many fixes and improvements in this release. With such a substantial release it is of utmost importance that the time is taken to read the release notes that are available on the CoPOS website at: www.copos.com/category/copos-update
One of these new features is the ability to print a select range of the pages you want from a report! Tired of printing off 10 pages of items when you only need the information on pages 3 and 4? Well, no more! CoPOS has made it possible to print a specified page or range of pages from within a list or report. This will save both paper and time. Look for this new option the next time you go to print a report or list. Please note that most reports have been given this new functionality; however, if you have a favorite report that did not get updated, let us know.
CoPOS is working on a new data exchange project with the food wholesaler Upper Lakes Foods (ULF) based out of Cloquet, MN. When this project is completed, a CoPOS user will be able to download the ULF invoice directly from the ULF website to their CoPOS server. Currently this project is in the testing phase. The invoice integration between ULF and CoPOS will work in a similar fashion to the invoice integration that currently exists with UNFI. Not a customer of Upper Lakes Foods? Do you want your wholesaler to integrate with CoPOS? Contact your wholesaler and ask them to get in touch with Jeremy (Jeremy@CoPOS.com) to start the process. Are you tired of copying your SPINS data to USB, changing the file name and emailing it to SPINS? Do you sometimes forget to do this during your busy work week? If so this new update to CoPOS will make you happy. As long as your CoPOS server is connected to the internet, CoPOS can now automatically send your SPINS data at the end of your SPINS week. CoPOS and SPINS think this will be of great convenience and offer more accurate data. CoPOS has been working closely with SPINS and can help you get set up by adding your store’s SPINS information into CoPOS. Please contact CoPOS for assistance in configuring this new feature. The automatic SPINS upload feature will be available in CoPOS Release 3.6.5A due out at the end of November.
