New Features - 11-2 Build 13

Welcome to Collect! Version 11.2 Build 13. This latest version has important new features and functionality and several enhancements to existing features.

Recent Debtor List

The new Browse menu option, Recent Debtor List, enables you to quickly return to any one of the last ten debtors you were viewing. Go back to the account you were on a while ago with just one click! Collect! updates this list continually, always displaying the ten most recent accounts that you were working. It's fast and easy to increase your productivity with this simple solution.

Please refer to Help Topic, Recent Debtor List for details.

Numerics Only Phone Fields

A new option in Options, Sounds and Colors enables you to strip non-numerics from Phone numbers as they are entered into Collect!. This makes it very easy to set up your accounts for compatibility with auto dialing systems. Phone numbers are automatically configured to the numerics only format required for these systems, as soon as you leave any phone field. This will also strip non-numerics from Phone fields filled during an import routine.

Please refer to Help Topic, Screen and Messages for details.

Set Timezone

A new report, Set Timezone, ships with the Collect! demodb and enables you to set the timezone for each of your debtors based on the area code in the Debtor Home phone field. Once you have run this report, the timezone control file, setzone.ctf, attached to the Debtor Home field in the Demodb, acts to update any new debtors as they are entered into your system. Changes to the area code will also update the debtor's Timezone field. This report and control file can easily be imported into your working database.

tip.gif Once you have set your timezones, you can manage your WIP Lists by Timezone. Simply select the Timezone column heading to sort the WIP List by Timezone. Or, use the Reload Work In Progress List dialog to set a Time range to view when the WIP List is reloaded.

Please refer to Help topic, Reload Work In Progress List for more information.
