Finance Leads to Polaris Digital
For Dealers participating in the Polaris Digital Web Program, finance leads will now be submitted to Polaris and included in web scoring. The lead will be submitted as vehicle lead and will include the vehicle information and contact information but not any other finance application details shared by customers.
New Search Options
A new search option is available in showroom settings if you want to use dropdowns instead of our type ahead search. The dropdown options in the search helps users to quickly find what they are looking for. Contact your Account Manager if you want to switch to add this new setting that provides a more browse-like search experience for users.
MU Settings Page Restructured
We have re-grouped the checkboxes that affect website listings on the Dealership Settings under MU Settings page into their own section titled Website Listing Settings. We have also added Hover Tips for each setting to help you configure your website options appropriately.
IE11 or Lower Version Warning
While we will still allow you to log into and use DX1 with IE11 and older browsers we will now warn you that you need to use Microsoft Edge 14 or Chrome 58 or Safari 10 for complete functionality. The warning is displayed immediately after you log in.
Quick Void WEs / ROs from list
To help you reduce clutter and focus on work that matters, we have added the ability for you to quickly void no longer needed WEs / ROsdirectly from the "Work Estimates" & "Repair Orders" lists. You can simply click on the new ‘Quick Void icon’ on the left next to other icons in the WE/RO list. The icon is visible only to the users that have permission to void invoices. Only invoices that have no payments taken and that have no other limitations like a parent deal already completed can be quickly voided using this feature. For Invoices with a payment already taken you can still void them but you will need to open the invoice, go to the Menu and click Void.
Remember, you now also have the ability to recreate a voided service invoice if needed.
Tucker Parts Availability look up
The ability to immediately check the warehouse availability of a part you do not have in stock when standing at the counter with a customer has become a highly used feature in DX1. We are happy to announce that we have now added this ability for Tucker Rocky parts. From a Part invoice simply click the red Tucker icon to bring up the real time warehouse availability for that part:
In order to take advantage of this feature you will need a Tucker Rocky “API Access Key” to obtain a key you will need to contact your Tucker Sales rep and fill out a “Tucker API Terms Of Service” document. Once you obtain a key simply go to your Tucker Vendor page in DX1 and paste it into the “API Access Key” field and click Save.
Charge Account customers in DX1 for dealers that do not sync with QBs
If you are a dealership that has Charge Account (AR) customers but are not using the DX1 Quickbooks integration, keeping track of the balances for those customers has been very difficult until now! We now have a feature that allows dealers not using the DX1 Quickbooks integration to still set up, manage, track balances, take payments and even generate statements for Charge Account customers. You can turn this feature On by going to Dealership Settings / Accounting Settings and checking the checkbox for the “Allow user to set AR Customer Credit Limit in DX1”. You should ONLY turn this feature On if you are NOT managing AR customers in Quickbooks. Once the feature is turned On you will be able to set the Credit Limit for each of your AR Customers:
In conjunction with this feature we have added two new Accounting reports which were primarily designed for dealers using this new feature but may bell we of use to all dealers that have Charge Account Customers:
1) AR Customers - This report will give you a list of all of your active AR Customers and will show you their current balance and last payment amount / date (if payment was taken in DX1)
2) AR Statements - This report generates a one page statement for any or all AR customers with a current balance
Service Scheduler Time Display
Changes were made to display working hours in the Service Scheduler. We now display working hours as 6am-6pm. To see appointments made earlier than 6am or later than 6pm, please use the monthly view. You can still make an earlier or later appointment but they will only be visible in the monthly view.
Today will now be highlighted in yellow in all views (month, week, day).
The weekly view has changed and every technician now has their own dedicated column.
General UI / Workflow enhancements
Parts Ordering Update
To reduce clicks and save you time we now immediately run the search when the vendor is changed in Parts Ordering just like in the Parts Receiving page. The Search button was made obsolete with this change and so it was removed.
Parts Receiving Update
We have renamed the “Receiving without PO” button to “Receive Without PO” and moved it next to the Add Part button in Part Receiving page.
