2. RMA Claim (Product Return Management)

This module aims to improve the claims by adding a way to manage the product returns. It allows you to create and manage picking from a claim. It also introduces a new object: the claim lines to better handle the problematic one. One Claim can have several lines that concern the return of different products. It’s for every one of them that you’ll be able to check the warranty (still running or not).

It mainly contains the following features: 

  • Product returns (one by one, mass return by invoice)
  • Warranty control & return address (based on invoice date and product form)
  • Product picking in / out
  • Product refund
  • Access to related customer data (orders, invoices, refunds, picking in/out) from a claim

3. Calendar Resources

This module adds new features to facilitate resource management with meetings:

  • To attach resources to a meeting, go to Calendar => Click on a meeting => Edit => Edit => add any related resources.
  • To edit or add a resource, go to Calendar => Resources => Resources.
  • This module can also prevent resources from being double-booked. Go to a resource and disable or enable Allow Double Booking (this is disabled by default). As a note, the same resource in a meeting that ends at 5pm and in a meeting that starts at 5pm on the same day would not not be considered double-booked.
  • You can restrict resources to certain calendar types. In the Resources form view, edit the Event Types field. The resource can then be added to events only of those types.
  • Resources cannot be added to events when they’re not available, either because they’re on leave or because the event time is outside their working time.
  • If you have an event selected as allday, only if there are no working times available on 1 or more of the days in that event will an error be raised. For example, if you set an event to all day on a Saturday and there are no working times at all that Saturday for a particular resource, then an error will be raised. However, if there is at least 1 working time interval for that resource on the Saturday, regardless of how long or short that working time is, the day will be considered covered by that working time. If the event is not allday, any time the resource is not available during the event, regardless of the time of day, will cause an error to be raised.
  • To stop leaves and working time validations on a resource when adding to an event, set the resource’s Working Time field to blank in the resource form view.
