We are back with another exciting release!

Kelvin Scanning Flow Update

The scanning flow in Kelvin has been updated to be faster and more accurate in selecting the right production tasks. Here is the list of improvements:

  • Clearer options with better information to make a decision between two samples or production tasks.

  • Can be operated without using the mouse!
    All options can be navigated using the arrow keys, "Enter" continues and "Backspace" takes you back one step. ⚡️ ⌨️

  • CMD + E can now reset the defined scope and allow for re-scanning or entering.
  • The confirmation dialogs for product or outfit can be disabled. This is great for studios where accurate barcoding is in place and never fails, and bad for studios where things are not streamlined 100%. So be careful with this one :-). It will, however, remove some precious seconds from the on-set scanning flow.

Edit Product in Kelvin

We've made it possible to edit a product in Kelvin, and it might not seem straight forward why this is smart, but there are some situations where it can be an advantage.

It will allow the user to override style guide requirements by switching off positions or production types. This can be handy in cases where the style guide has been created a bit too strict, and no shots are right for a mandatory position.

In cases where the style guide triggers are not correctly set up or just not covering 100% of your products, the default style guide will be assigned. Via the edit dialog, a user can override the assigned style guide and thereby fix the immediate issue without disruption of the production.

All changes are logged in the event log for later reference.

Conditional Production Types

As we have conditional positions on style guides, we now have the ability to conditionality activate/deactivate entire production types.

We hope you will find good use for this feature that has been requested by so many of our customers!
