Live Entry

  • Observation Code can now be set globally as an EID shortcut. Previously it could only be set for a weight.
  • Made the Live Entry startup screen smaller so that it could fit on the TSi's screen with the task bar showing.
  • The background colour of the ID box in Live Entry will display the highlight colour of the animal (the colour it is in the Stockbook animals list).
  • Live Entry session files are now stored within the database, so can be synced and viewed. To view the session select Activity | Sessions | View from within Live Entry. Note that sessions from previous versions appear in the list, but they will not have the session files attached.
  • Added a species selection box on the Live Entry startup screen in case the user wants to change which species they are currently using in Live Entry.
  • You can now draft animals in Live Entry based on the sire they were last preg tested to.
  • The messages window in Live Entry can now be hidden if you user does not wish to view any messages. Note that the window will still be displayed if an animal has been flagged.

  • Mobs in Stockhand are now sorted by mob code (instead of description) to match how they are displayed in Stockbook.


Miscellaneous Minor Changes

  • Removed the ability to select animals from within reports as the functionality was limited compared to the filtering available in the animal list.
  • Removed the ability to sell animals at foot when in a society. This is because each animal must have it's own disposal code, including registered animals at foot.

  • The size of the left and right carcase grade fields has been extended to 10 characters to allow the use of longer grade definitions.

  • Fixed issue in the Pedigree Match Maker area where in certain circumstances, the wrong PMM files were used.
  • Fixed issue with the NAIT implementation where NAIT was supplying a "broken" WSDL document which was causing issues with our implementation.
  • Fixed issue with Expected Birth Dates report where the date was getting displayed as 1900 when it should have been blank.
  • Date Due not getting set against animal record when just preg week number used to set preg status has been fixed.
