Release Notes

Mercury Network 3. 0 - November 28, 2012 Update

This update contains improvements throughout Mercury Network and VMP XSites.

New Feature: Action Required Folder

The Action Required folder is a new, completely customizable folder you can use to see only the orders you want to see, based on your criteria. You can choose from several different events such as orders that haven’t had a status update in a certain timeframe, or status updates that include comments from the vendor. This allows you to see all your orders that require attention in one, easy to manage folder. Click here to read more.

New Feature: Manually sync statuses

VMP XSite users now have the ability to manually sync statuses from the XSite to Mercury, and vice versa. If you want to review the comments or document before it gets synced, you can now use the Sync to VMP button to push the status after it has occurred. When manually syncing a status to either the VMP XSite order or the Mercury Network order you now have the option to edit the original comments, add to the original comments, or enter new comments altogether.

New Feature: Additional Automatic Status Mapping Options

We’ve improved status mapping by adding more statuses that can be configured to automatically sync in the direction you choose. In addition, you can now configure whether you want the sync to include client or vendor comments for individual statuses, exclude comments altogether, or be replaced with your own custom comments. The new status mapping features also let you choose which document types you want to sync automatically.
