There is a bunch of updates in workflows:
- One can change the Counterparty field in a new workflow. Go to Settings → Workflows → add a new one → Add action → Update Counterparty fields. For instance, add a customer whose purchases exceed a certain threshold to the Regulars group. Then one can work with such buyers in bulk — send mailings with special offers or transfer them to personal managers.
- One can create a workflow for a sales return. Go to Settings → Workflows → add a new one → Object → Sales Return. It’s possible to automatically change the status of documents, set a reserve or pending, create tasks for employees, and send notifications.
Changes in the production module:
- While creating a bill of materials, you can set up the labour cost rate for each operation. Go to Production → Bills of Materials → add a new one → Operations Costs → Labour Cost. Thus the labour cost is calculated for the exact employee who completed the production stage.
- Now it’s possible to open a product card either of a finished good or of a raw material in a production order. Go to Production → Production Orders → add a new one with all necessary products & click on the cards. So you can make changes straightaway.
- We’ve added the Variance column in the production orders so that you could see the difference between the goods you planned to produce and actually produced goods.

Long-expected API is now available in Kladana. API enables customized integrations with your own or third-party app. Thus you can extend core functionality. Read more about API documentation.
New opportunities in the Production module:
- Work in Progress (WIP) has been added. You can monitor WIP volume for each production order or a set of them. Also, it is possible to keep track of WIP for products in stock report, and to take it into account while creating sales orders — WIP is counted in the column In Transit.
- Also, you can indicate particular employees who completed a specific production operation (section Process Tracking).
- Unit cost column can be found in Operations Reports.

Some new possibilities for our users in the Production module:
- Operation Reports are available as a separate list of transactions. Now you can monitor all stages for all Production Orders, filter them by BOM or type of operation.
- Custom Fields are available for Operation Reports. Custom Fields can be used to assign an employee to the specific stage or add ‘quality check’ mark for each stage + responsible for quality check person. Custom Fields are supported in Filter, too.
- We add the possibility to print barcode stickers directly from the Production Order. After completion of production just print them according to the quantity of finished goods.
- New default print form ‘Product costs estimation’ is available for the BOM.
Also we have released a new Tutorial. Now you can not only pass through the main steps to create a Product, Receiving and Shipment, but also read about other features for each module.

- Address Storage is available in Kladana. Now you can assign all current good stock to the bins in your Warehouse, define storage location and bins for received goods and choose manually or automatically bins in Receiving transactions. Also print form Pick List is available, it could help to speed up the order collecting process.
- Batches and expiry dates are available in beta, this option can be switched on for your Kladana account after request to our support. Kladana helps you to account separately for the stock of goods with the same SKU but received from different Suppliers or with different expiry dates, monitor in reports products by batches, choose for the Sales order products from specific batches.

A long-awaited update in the Production module: now you can change the quantity and list of Raw Materials in the Production Order before starting the production process, if any stage is completed or after all stages are completed. Also you can change the list and quantity of Finished Goods after the completion of any of the stages.
It can be useful if:
- you produce very customized product and need to change raw materials before starting of production for a specific Production Order;
- you produced more or less after any of the stages and want to change quantity of the finished goods exactly after this stage;
- you want to replace raw material in the Production Order to a similar one without changing a BOM.
More information on How to change actually produced goods and used raw materials in PO in our Help center.

We updated the linking mechanism for transactions. Now for most transactions it is possible to create different types of ‘related transactions’, manually link already created transactions to another one and easily find all related transactions and see their statuses and states.
For example, you created an independent Purchase Order and Receiving. You can link these transactions with warehouse Transfer or Sales Order, in case if any of the transactions changes status or will be modified, it will be easy to track all involved transactions.

- Few conditions are available for Workflows. For example, «receive notifications on different status for Sales Order: Shipped, Paid, Canceled». It allows you to reduce the number of similar Workflows.
