WHAT'S NEW in Detail

DAT-MAIL Version 21.21.2.10 or later

Added a new CSVExport called Freight Plan Pallet Detail with Address.

Users like our Freight Plan Pallet Detail CSV and requested the addition of the USPS facility address. Instead of replacing the Freight Plan Pallet Detail Export CSV, a new file is available. From the Advanced Navigator screen, go to Reports > CSVExport > Freight Plan Pallet Detail with Address.

Streamlined the PMOD© Open & Distribute Production Report.

The Open & Distribute report is much easier to read, the headings have been moved to the top of each page.

PMOD Report

Added a Job Number column to the Postage Detail Report, plus added a filter to run the report by 'Job Number' or 'Job Name'.

From the DAT-MAIL main screen, go to Other Programs > Manage PMOD Shipments.

When the PMOD Labels/Shipment Browsescreen appears, click on Print Reports select either of the two Postage Detail...reports.

The Select Date Range...dialog box will appear, select the appropriate date range and click OK.

PMOD Labels Shipments

The PMOD Postage Detail Filter dialog box will appear to run the report by Job Number or Job Name enter a value and click Apply.

NOTE: if you want to run the report for all jobs in the date range specified above leave both of the fields, shown below, blank and click Apply.

PMOD Postage Detail Filter

The Postage Detail Report selected to run, in this example 'Postage Detail Report (voids not included)' will appear with the new Job Number column and the applicable filters (in this example, Start and End Date of '11/16/20' and the Job Number 'DEMO FILE'):

PMOD Postage Detail Filter

Added a Copy button to the Carrier browse that when pressed opens the carrier dialog with all the information copied except the carrier code and description.

From the DAT-MAIL main screen, go to File > Carrier List, when the Browse the Carrier File screen appears, select the Carrier to copy and click Copy. The Changing a Carrier Record screen will appear, enter a new Code and Name, if needed update the Folder Paths in the Data Exchange tab. When ready click OK.

Changing Carrier Record

In the Mail Schedule View, more control over what information is updated, when multiple entry points are tagged.

Previously, if a specific field should not be updated for all entry points, for example, the Origin mail needs the USPS Pickup field set to 'Yes', but the other entry points should be 'No'. Before, it required first updating the origin mail and then updating the other entry points. Now, from the Mail Schedule View screen, 1. select the entry points to update and highlight the Origin mail, in this case Boston MA, and then 2. click Change. The Mail Schedule View Update Records screen will appear to update whatever changes are required, then 3. click OK.

Mail Schedule View

Now, after you click OK, the Update Tagged Records... screen will appear and the updated fields will be tagged (checked). If a specific field is checked that should not be updated, in this example, the USPS Pick Up field - 1. uncheck it and then 2. click Update Tagged records. The dates will change, but the USPS Pick Up field will not change from its original value for the remaining entry points.

Report held.

A behind-the-scenes change has been made to hold the DAT-PreCheck Report for a job until missing information has been looked up in PostalOne!®. For new clients, this may mean a delay of up to 10 minutes, but it will eliminate the need to do a second upload to get missing information. No new software download is needed. If you have installed version 8.20.13.74 , you are up to date.
