Here is a list of the optional fields that can be displayed or turned off under the System Settings tab.

First, you have Special System wide settings:

Second are Other System wide settings:
Disable BOL Delete Function - Check this box if you do not want the user to delete Bill of Ladings

Disable the Printed BOL Lock - Check this box if reprinting of Bill of Ladings is allowed 

Use Product ID on Search instead of Description - This option will allow you to search by Product ID instead of Description during the search function while entering the detail line items of the BOL. This should only be checked if you are using the Product ID field in the Description/Items file.

Use Product ID's in Bill Entry and Printing - This feature will allow you to key in the Product ID's on the bills and it will also print on the Bills.

Use Consignee ID on Search instead of Cons Name.  This option will allow you to search by Consignee ID instead of the Consignee's Name during the search function while entering a BOL. This should only be checked if you are using the Consignee ID in the Consignee file.

Reverse the standard printing of Consignee and Deliver to addresses on BOL form. - This option will reverse the printing locations for the Consignee and Deliver to address on the form. This had caused an issue with a few Carriers as they were sending bills to the wrong recipient.

Use MAPI email instead of BOL sytem default. - selecting this option will call your default email system to send the BOL's. This is used on systems that cannot use our default email system because of restrictions placed by the ISP.  This way you can send the BOL's via your email system such as Outlook Express and use your email address book.

Use Outlook Mail - Selecting this option will tell the system to insert a prefix of "smtp:" in front of the email address when calling the email program.  This is used in the case that Outlook 2010 or other versions need this to resolve the email names.  Only used if you are running Outlook Mail program and the emails are not actually being sent.  This is an issue only with Outlook 2010 that we know of.

Use SSL Auth to send emails - Selecting this option will cause the program to use SSL Authentication with your ISP/Email provider like Office365 and Gmail.  This is only used when using the internal email system and not calling out to your own email client.

Loop twice on Email Command - On some systems, it may be required to process the Loop twice Email Command to allow the program to correctly send out the email.  Some systems do not process the MAPI commands that are sent from the program on the first loop.  This is the reason for this option.  If the system does not send the email correctly with the default, then select this option and it should work correctly.

Allow Sales Order file import and selection/load. - selecting this option will allow you to import a sales file into the system that contains sales information such as the Customer info, etc. This will be accessable using either the F6 key or the menu option - Edit, Load Sales Order. This option is currently under development, but is active if you want to use it to access and load Customer information when creating a BOL. For more information about this option, you can contact our Web Support Help Desk.

Unlock Link between Deliver To's and Consignees - If checked, this will allow you to use the drop down function in the Deliver to, if different field to select any Delivery Address you have stored in your database. Instead of linking the Consignees with their own Deliver to entries which only allows you to select the Deliver to's entries associated with the given Consignee. 

Display Deliver To, if Different fields - If checked, this will display the Deliver to, if different fields allowing you to enter a different deliver to address

Add Quoted Amt and Handling Charges to program - This option will display on the main BOL screen two fields for Quoted Amounts and Handling Charges.  These fields do not print on the BOL, they are there for internal usage only.

Do NOT include "PLT" UM in Total Pcs column.  This option if checked will not include any items that have a UM of PLT in the total pieces column on the bill.  If unchecked, it will.  This is used for the purpose of not including Pallets in the total pieces calculations.

Canadian Dangerous Goods Usage - selecting this option will change the defaults from Hazardous Materials to Dangerous Goods.

Use Password Security for Users - selecting this option will all you to setup a Users file to define 3 levels of security to access the program.  This will cause the program to display a log in when the program is run.  The three levels of security are Administrator, User, and View only.  More information can be found in the Maintain Users file.

Turn On/Off Bubble Hints - This is used to turn on/off the Bubble Hints when you move your mouse over selected areas that will display hints to their usage.

Use System Inactivity Shutdown - This option will shut down the software application after 3 hours of inactivity.

All changes will take effect after exiting the program and restarting.
