Currently, two versions of the Cash Collection screen are available (original and current), which depend on your configuration settings.
We are both versions of the Cash Collection screens into one new version to improve the performance of the screen and to make product maintenance easier. Additionally, the new Cash Collection screen display will be simplified with no loss of functionality.
Master Terminal release 8.6.1.080 is scheduled for October 2019.
Preview of the new Cash Collection Screen
The controls on the new Cash Collection screen will be the same as the controls on the current Cash Collection screen; that is, controls have not been added or removed. The difference between the current screen and new screen is how the information is displayed after you click the Calculate button.
First, the original and current screens:
The following diagram shows an example of the original Cash Collection (or Cash Receipt) screen after calculating the charges for a cargo item.
The Cash Receipt screen has some differences from the current Cash Collection screen; for example, the Even Weight by BOL, Comments, and Print Proforma Invoice buttons are not available and the calculation details are displayed in a different way.
Current Cash Collection screen (after calculating the charges for the specified cargo)
New Cash Collection screen (after calculating the charges for the same cargo as in the previous diagram)
In the new Cash Collection screen:
- You can select and unselect items in the table to specify whether they are to be paid or not, which you cannot do in the original Cash Collection (Cash Receipt) screen (you can do this in the current Cash Collection screen, however).
- The table has no expanding or collapsing sections. Each cargo item has a:
- Line under which the required cash payments are listed. The Paid column indicates whether the cash payment has been received.
- Total line.
- The Extra Items button at the lower left of the screen will be replaced by the New Extra Item button and you will be able to specify multiple additional charges against a cargo item. Currently, you can specify one additional charge only.
