NEW New workflow option: Automatic creation of supplier invoices

When vendors are assigned or pick a job, the system automatically calculates the cost based on job specification, word count and vendor prices. The system will be further able to generate the invoice for the job. This makes it unnecessary for the project manager to create invoices at a later stage

Invoicing, Project Managers, Administrators - WM-129

NEW Project, jobs and orders pages: New option to filter multiple target languages

For the projects, jobs and orders lists you will find a new "Target languages" (plural) filter option next to the existing "Target language" (singular) filter. With this new filter you can set multiple languages and find all items that have at least one of those target languages. Please note that the selected languages must match exactly: Selecting "English" finds "English" but not "English (United States)".

NEW Each user can now configure his/her personal time zone for the display of dates

The timezone selector was available on company level only. This meant that all users in a company saw dates displayed in this time zone. With the present development each user can now set a personal timezone in the "My account" page. This is great for users, belonging to the same company, but who work in different time zones.

Core, Translators, Project Managers, Clients - WM-930

NEW Auto-assigned project references: New placeholders added

Wordbee permits to generate project references automatically based on a "template" and placeholders (incremental ids, date, etc.). We have added a new placeholder {pjday} for the number of projects on the day of reception and one {pjmonth} for the number of projects in the month of reception for the same client.
Example: {code}-{year2}{month}{day:2}-{pjday} : Where XX is a code marking the number of projects received from the particular client on the given day. For example: If a client by the code ABC submitted two projects today, we would get: ABC-180108-1 and ABC-180108-2.
You configure the reference format in "Settings" > "Reference numbers".

NEW Supplier portal: Enable suppliers to amend services and rates.

This new feature adds a price list amendment workflow. 2 new access rights were added: One to allow users (typically external suppliers) to amend prices and then submit a draft to the manager. Another one to allow internal users to review and accept amendments.
With this new feature you can for example involve suppliers with the creation and maintenance of price lists. Instead of receiving price change requests by email, suppliers can now be invited to amend prices by themselves. Since any amendment requires approval by an authorized internal manager, the workflow is fully controlled.

NEW Company/person notes: Notify subscribers by email when notes are added or changed

When adding or changing notes from the company or person pages, email notifications are sent to subscribers. Email subscriptions are enabled individually per user from the "My account" page.

IMPROVED Document library page: No more conflicts if several tabs open in browser showing documents of different projects

The code files default configuration will extract quoted strings by default. You can change/add filters at "Settings" > "Code files". For example to exclude certain content based on regular expressions.

NEW Flag jobs not assigned or accepted within defined time interval

If a job is not assigned to supplier(s) or does not get response by the assigned supplier(s) within the time interval that defined from work processes settings, the system automatically flags this job in the job overview page to alert the project manager that this job remains unassigned or the job openings remain unaccepted. A warning icon is shown.
This feature must be enabled in "Settings" > "Work Processes".

NEW CoDyt projects only -> Job openings workflow updates

The customer expects job openings to be inactive while the job is “Inactive”. The opening of the job becomes active once it is changed to “Not started” or

IMPROVED New workflow settings options: Disallow suppliers to accept multiple jobs in same workflow

You will find a new "Job opening" section in the workflow settings of a project. This option is available with Codyt projects.
Let us explain the purpose with an example: Suppose you are marking a document for translation and the workflow has a translation, a revision and a proofreading step. All steps are configured as job openings.
Let us further assume that some suppliers are qualified to do all three steps. However, you want to make sure that a supplier can only accept one job in each workflow (it would be bad if the very same supplier translates and proofreads a document). The newly added options enable you to prevent such scenarios. A supplier may well accept the translation job but will see an error message if he/she attempts to then also accept the revision job (for the same document and languages).
Manual assignments by a project manager are not subject to any restrictions.

FIX [Instant Translate] The "read translation out loud" function is now only available if your browser supports the language

In the Instant Translate app, the "read translation out loud" functionality was always available, even if the locale wasn't supported. In those cases, it defaulted to the first locale available, resulting in strange speech. This function has therefore been disabled if your browser can't speak the language of the translated text.
