SoundNet Integration

We are pleased to announce that the new integration with SoundNet has arrived!

In OneOS version 2.0.51, you will be able to configure your SoundNet credentials to allow OneOS to automatically update SoundNet with the installation and removal of Jukebox PCs.

This will cut down on admin work for you, and improve billing with more accurate information delivered directly to SoundNet automatically.

The integration can be found in the System > Integrations menu, you will need a client ID and secret key provided by Soundnet.

The new version is coming soon,,,

OneOS NG2

OneOS NG2 is coming in the next few days and is packed with interface changes, you will notice a splash more colour, better contrast and softer rounded edges throughout.

As part of this major re-design we are introducing a new menu bar and icon set, you can see this below:

Looking at the icons shown here, from left to right:

  • Filters: Tap to toggle the filters on data views
  • Add: Options for adding new items, a list where multiple are available
  • View: Options to open other related views
  • Action Button: Options available for editing or running specific related functions on the page
  • Refresh: reload the current data view
  • Print: Print the current data selection, includes printing to PDF or print to PDF and email
  • Export: Export the current data selection to Excel or CSV
  • Search: Search the current data in view
  • Display Options: Select the columns to display in the data view

The new menu replaces the older vertical bar that used to run down the left edge of screens, this new bar sits across the top and gives you access to all the same features.

When clicking icons with multiple items such as the view, shown here, a drop down list will appear.

Select the option you wish to open the related selection. If you move the mouse from the list, it will automatically close.

The report header control has also been updated to the same style as shown here. The green ‘Play’ icon will run the selected report.

Once you receive the update make sure you take a few moments to get to know the new layout and where all your usual menus are now located.

OneOS Update 1.0.27.0

The latest update to OneOS brings some new functionality as well as some tweaks and adjustments, so lets dive in:

ADIPS Machine Inspection

We have added a field to the machine models to specify if the particular piece of equipment requires ADIPS inspections, in the workshop menu you will also find a dedicated menu showing machines due for inspection within the next 30 days or overdue. You can also register the inspection date and result against a machine.

Service Call Issue

We have added a function to allow for only authorized contacts to be able to place calls for a site, this is enabled at a site level. When set, any call being placed by a customer will be checked against the site contacts and only those authorized to do so will be able to place calls. If a non-allowed contact is placing a call, a message will be displayed to the user.

Request Planning System

There have been a couple of adjustments made to the planning system, mainly that when authorizing requests for installation or machine changes the specific machine can no-longer be selected, this is now only done via the planning console. The user can still select the model to be used.

The planning console can now only be opened against a selected costcentre, this prevents cross centre users having conflicting machines planned at the same time.

The route mapping has been re-enabled in the planning console and updated to use the latest (and faster) mapping service.

Site Gains Report

We have added a new report to find the first installation date on sites, using this between date ranges allows you to quickly find new sites in that period.

Data Export Logging

Every time a user exports, prints or emails data from OneOS it will be logged, there is a new report in the company section to allow directors to see this activity.

Everything Else

As well as the functionality changes above this update also includes:

  • Fleet – added list price field to vehicles
  • Fleet – added a report to show vehicle assignments between selected dates
  • Stores – added manual stock adjustment function
  • Movement Changes Report – added optional machine financial information (for admin users)
  • Service Calls Report – added option to show downtime
  • Financial – added sited machine depreciation report
  • Customer Terms – added batch update function (for company managers)
  • Cloud Hosted Version – fixed an issue with service claim signatures not showing
  • Meter Import – fixed an issue for legacy movements showing incorrect meter labels

OneOS – New Feature: Report Builder

So today with the release of OneOS version 1.0.3.0 we are introducing the power report builder!

Although OneOS contains a large selection of reports that cover everything from collections to financial performance, and most include selectable options and configurations, we often get asked for additional fields to be added here or there for individual customers.

The new report builder allows you to create bespoke reports from hundreds of available fields, and configure the parameters the report will run against, and built into a handy drag and drop interface.
Once you have created your report it will save to the ‘My Reports’ menu or you can share it with other users too.

The report builder can be found at the top of the ‘My Reports’ menu, click to launch. We have included a demo video here to show you the builder in action.

What Can I Build?

As an example, you could use the report builder to find collections between selected dates, that were carried out by a specific collector or for a specified customer and select the exact fields you want to see in the report. This allows you to create truly individual reports with the information that applies to your business.

Getting Better All The Time

The release today of report builder is the first in a planned development that will continue over future releases of OneOS where we will continue to add features and functions.
