Release Notes - October 2020 - BidJS & AssetFlow

It’s not quite Halloween yet but we do have some shockingly good news for you... A double-release! 

This month we’ll be rolling out updates to both BidJS and AssetFlow customers. Far from a witches’ brew, we bring you some bug fixes and improvements that we hope will bring a smile from ear to ear, just like the grin of a pumpkin carving (although hopefully less creepy). 

Without further ado, here’s what’s coming soon!

BidJS 

As usual we have made many security updates along with a couple of fairly significant improvements. 

Firstly, though, a question for you…
 

Who wants 8 times faster image uploads?!

 

For BidJS this month, the long wait is over... And by that I mean the long wait when uploading images! We are very proud to say that we have improved the speed that images upload into the system by up to 8 times. (Please note that the improvement you see will depend on various factors specific to your location, computer capabilities, connection speed, etc.) 

Alongside this, we also received feedback from a few people that it would be an improvement to see a call to action for registered bidders from the auctions home page (e.g. https://bidjs.com/demo/#!/) once they are approved to bid on the auction. We listened, and now we have delivered! Users will now see the button on the auction home page view change from “Register to Bid”, to “Awaiting Approval” and finally to “View Auction” once approved. Users can now click the View Auction button, once approved, and get straight through to the auction. The text on these buttons can be changed so if you would prefer it to say something else, just let us know on support@bidlogix.net.

AssetFlow

This release is a real scream for AssetFlow users! We have made some big visual improvements while also introducing some new functionality - all this alongside our usual security updates and bug fixes. Let’s kick off with the new look. 

As part of the upcoming release, we have introduced the ability to add vendors to assets before sending over to bidlogix. This should reduce admin time and keep your sales process smooth and efficient. Vendors can also be reviewed and applied in bulk either when creating or updating assets in bulk via a spreadsheet or using the various bulk editing methods within the software. We have also made sure that any historical data for vendors is pulled across too if an asset has already been in a sale. (Please note that if you don’t specify a vendor it will default to the same vendor that you usually see assigned i.e. the first in your vendor list on Bidlogix). 

Up next, we have overhauled the look and feel of the Deals section primarily so that more deals can be seen in one go, making for easier management and an improved experience. We hope you will enjoy the new look and please feel free to provide feedback to us by clicking here. Finally, we have improved the ability to manage approval assignments for admins in AssetFlow by making it possible to filter Approval Privileges by location. This means that assigning and managing locations has never been easier.

That’s it for this release - we look forward to putting it in your hands. Stay safe and well until next time and enjoy the spooky season!
