  • Fixed a few bulk edit bugs from build 1.85.
  • Fixed a bug that removed sharing from all file attachments when only one attachment was removed.



  • Rebuild of cost roll-up feature.  Costs are now calculated on the Assembly (BOM), so the same procured part can have different costs depending on which BOM it is being used in.
  • Improvements to change workflow: system is now configurable to define which phase a change will move to after rejection and to allow only certain transitions to be controlled by a change analyst.
  • Proof-of-concept Steelbrick (Salesforce CPQ) integration.

  • Fixed an issue where Partner Portal users could not view certain Propel objects
