Report Writer

The Report Writer will now properly read the CBR tab if referenced in a report.

Added an @CBRDesc command that puts the metro codes into a variable matching the format of the Metro contact.

Warning Note WARNING: This is an advanced feature and should not be used without proper training.

Added the @PV command to the report writer which prints the picklist numerical value instead of the description value.

Added an @REPLACE command to the report writer that allows you to pass in a variable, the text to search for, and the text to replace with and Collect! will do a search and replace on the variable.

Added an @PROMPT command to the report writer that allows you to create a custom prompt with up to 10 buttons, where the selected button will be returned to a string variable.

Transactions are now recalculated after an @EDIT.

Added the ability to import files into the web host.

Added the ability to import line feeds into the notes under the new schema. Simply place @x0A (case sensitive) in the default value, fill value, or data file being imported at the location you want the line feed to appear.

When importing to a field with 'Log to notes' enabled, Collect! will now log the change to notes.

Added a condition to the import module where if you check 'must be filled' on a field where you are using scanf, Collect! will now skip the data if scanf return no data.

Credit Bureau Reporting

Added a switch to the CBR settings called 'Optional SSN and date of birth' to accommodate non-US customers who are not affected by the recent legislative changes. When enabled, Collect will not check SSN and date of birth values to see if they are valid.

Warning Note WARNING: This is for non-US countries and should not be used by US customers; otherwise, their files may be rejected.

Contact Management

Altered the behavior of 'Delete All Pending Contacts' on a contact plan with regard to promises. Old behavior was to not delete the promise at all. New behavior is to delete it or mark it as done depending on the repeat configuration.
