1)Automatically Compute 'Mill by Date'

 

A feature was added in Millworx 8.3 to provide the option of automatically computing the 'Mill By Date' based upon the customer's 'Needs by Date', or 'Deliver by Date'. The computation is based upon the quantity of days set in the Millworx Default settings table. The 'Mill by Date' will automatically compute by subtracting a Millworx default value from the 'Customer Needs by Date'. The 'Mill by Date' falls on a Saturday or Sunday, then the 'Mill by Date' is set to the previous Friday.

(B) Mill by Date.

(C) If the Quote contains one or more Job Items that requires End-Matching, then the message "Contains End-Matching Items" appears in the 'Ship To' frame.

(D) The 'Customer Needs by Date' may be applied to all existing Job Items in the Quote.

(E) The 'Mill by Date' may be applied to all existing Job Items in the Quote.

(F) If the check-box 'Auto Adjust Mill by Date' is checked, then the 'Mill by Date' will automatically compute by subtracting a Millworx default value from the 'Customer Needs by Date'.
