This is it: the final Cin7 feature update of 2017. We have many new things in store for the new year and we can’t wait to share them with you. In 2018, expect to see more automation built into Cin7, refined user-experience, new dashboards and more.

Recent Upgrades, Fixes and Other Developments

In this upgrade and feature update, you’ll notice we’ve made significant improvements to our eCommerce and marketplace integrations. Generally speaking, these upgrades make it easier for you to manage stock and ordering when selling online.

CRM Module

  • Auto Dispatch Batch Items as FIFO Items. Products stored as batch items can now be dispatched in FIFO for eCommerce orders. In other words, Cin7 will auto dispatch products with batch numbers, oldest first. This can be switched on at the branch level in the CRM module. (November 23, 2017)
  • Secondary Contact Bug. Fixed a bug that prevented users from saving secondary contact delivery details. (November 9, 2017)

eCommerce/Marketplace Integrations

  • Auto Order Status (All Cin7 V2 Integrations). Cin7 has removed yet one more manual process in our eCommerce and Marketplace integrations. You can now use the Scheduler for V2 integrations to check and update the order status every seven minutes. Formally, you had to manually use the Sales Order Review Screen to trigger an Order Status update. (November 29, 2017)
  • Link Cin7 Branch to Warehouse (Joor). Link stock updates for Cin7 branches to a specific Warehouse listed in Joor. Enter the Warehouse Name from Joor in the box next to the corresponding Branch in Cin7. You can map multiple branches to the same warehouse and the stock will be summed. Learn more.

  • eBay: Maximum Calls-Per-Day. Cin7 completed eBay’s Compatibility Application Check, thus raising your maximum API calls-per-day limit from 5,000 to 1.5 million calls-per-day. With the compatibility check, you will no longer encounter errors due to API call max-outs. (November 23, 2017)
