This release delivers several enhancements in the Urbanise FM platform to assist in streamlining your operations.
Location Role Based Approval Limits
This feature allows approval limits to be configured at the location level for specific operator roles.
Location based approval limits flow through to operator actions such as:
job purchase order amounts
job invoice approvals
The following changes to existing screens were implemented as part of this feature:
When viewing a location, a new tab is available for APPROVALS.
Operators with the required permission will have the option to add an approval limit amount for specific role categories by selecting the +ADD button. A list of all configured role categories and limits will display when loading this page.
Settings > Agents
A new option to 'Update Approval Limits' is now available in the Operational Data section of Agent permissions.
When enabled for a logged in agent, the agent can add and edit the Role Category approval limits under the Locations > Approvals tab as shown above.
The 'Update Approval Limits' option is not enabled for any users or role categories at the time of this update and must be individually assigned.
The 'Update Approval Limits' configuration is included in the Agent Export file.
Location Import / Export
The following new options are available under Locations > Export / Import:
Add Approval Limits This import file may be used to add Role Category Approval limits for a Location.
Remove Approval Limits This import file may be used to remove Role Category Approval limits from a location.
The import files contain the following fields:
Work Order Assignee - exclude suppliers

Labour rate increases can be added for specific dates as a percentage of the cost and/or sell rates. The following rules apply:
A rate increase date in the future must be specified
Cost or Sales increase must be specified
Percentages may include two decimal places
Multiple concurrent increases over the life of the job plan may be added
The system check for increases will occur on the date specified
