May 2023

What’s New

With this feature, users can conveniently store print files directly on the server when the order is moved to the state that automates the execution, simplifying their workflow and ensuring seamless storage of files associated with order requests. This enhancement reduces manual effort, improves efficiency, and streamlines the overall print process for handling order requests.


Notification for Download Background Item

We have introduced a new notification feature that enhances the user experience during background item downloads. With this enhancement, users will receive notifications in two ways: through the notifications section in the application and via email.

These notifications will be prominently displayed in the notifications panel, ensuring users can easily track the status of their downloads.

These email notifications will be sent to the email address associated with their account, ensuring users can stay updated even when they are not actively using the application.


By implementing notifications in both the application and emails, we aim to provide users with multiple channels to receive updates on their background item downloads. This ensures that users are always informed about the progress of their downloads, regardless of whether they are actively using the application or not.
