1. ALL ONIX APPS

Quickly identify tagged equipment with new icons and display fields

In Onix Work, Onix Worker, Onix Inspect, and Onix Tool Store, you can easily spot equipment which have been tagged through new icons and display fields - “Tagged equipment” and “Tag type”. The system will automatically classify the tagged equipment as you link tags, update Onix ID, run Open API, or generate QR code reports. Moreover, you can use filters to quickly identify the tagged equipment by their tag types.

Introduce global ID as the unified equipment identifier

Expanding beyond RFID to include QR codes and other technologies, global ID promotes versatility and consistency in equipment identification within Onix system. As a result, the adoption of global ID as the unified identifier will replace the term “EPC” across the user interface.

[ENHANCED] Equipment - Create equipment with suggested “Company” and “Location” values

After using advanced filters to find equipment owned by a specific company and location, creating equipment will automatically fill in the new item’s “Company” and “Location” fields. Similarly, if default filters for company and/or location are defined in the current list view, they will be suggested. This streamlined process simplifies equipment registration, saving time, and ensuring accuracy.

[ENHANCED] Equipment - New standard view: “My checked out equipment”

In the Equipment module, the “My checked out equipment” view displays a list of all items currently checked out by you. To access this view, simply click on the current view’s name next to the search box and choose it from the “Standard views” section.

  • Quickly remove connections to other member companies using the “Remove connection” button within every “View connection details” panel. With the ability to remove 1- or 2-sided connection at once, this improvement allows you to adjust outdated connections more quickly and easily.

[ENHANCED] Orders - Better select company in “Customer” and “Supplier” fields

[ENHANCED] Orders - Prevent processing order to a terminated member company

From this release, data accuracy and integrity will be ensured as orders to terminated member companies will be restrained from processing. Since these companies do not use Onix Work anymore, you cannot select them as an order’s customer or supplier. Even when a terminated member company has already been selected, during order validation, you will ultimately get a warning message and be forced to select another company.

[ENHANCED] Issues - Add “Comment” and “Solution” display fields to issue list

Enjoy enhanced convenience and data clarity by viewing “Comment” and “Solution” without opening every issue has become possible! To add or remove these display fields from the issue list, you should select fields to display in your own custom views.

Coupled with Onix Worker’s new “Check out and check in equipment” feature is an additional sub-privilege under the Equipment section, namely “Check out/in equipment (Onix Worker)”. This sub-privilege follows the main privilege’s access level and is OFF by default. To enable equipment checkout from Onix Worker, simply turn on this sub-privilege for relevant roles.
