Updates

  • New Retailer Warehouse Mapping Tool: Retailers and supply partners often use different internal codes when referring to a supply partner’s various warehouse locations. This makes it difficult for retailers to communicate which warehouse they would like an order to ship from. Using Dsco’s new Warehouse Mapping Tool retailers can map their internal warehouse codes to the codes of their supply partners, allowing seamless communication of the desired warehouse location for orders. Retailers can see and edit the various internal warehouse codes within the Warehouse Management tool in the portal. If you are interested in turning on this warehouse mapping feature for your program, please reach out to us at support@dsco.io.
  • Schema Changes: As we continue to enhance the platform for all users, we’ve made several changes and updates to our schema. These include:
    • Multiple Line Item Retailer IDs
      • The Dsco platform can now support multiple retailer item IDs for a single item. Extra fields have been provided for retailers to specify additional IDs from within their systems.
    • Line Item Department and Merchandising Account Names and IDs
      • Fields have been added to allow internal department names/IDs and/or merchandising account names/IDs from the retailer to be included within orders, cancellations, status updates, shipping updates, returns, and invoices.
    • Original Order Create Date
      • The original order create date is now included within the invoice file.
    • Packing Slip Message
      • Order level and line item packing slip messages can now be included with orders.
    • SSCC Barcode IDs 
      • SSCC Barcode IDs can now be included with shipment, invoice, and shipment return files. They must adhere to the following guidelines:
        • Must be 20 digits
        • Must start with 00
        • The last number (the check digit) must be valid
        • All characters must be numbers only (no alpha, space, or special characters)
    • Warehouse Mapping Tool Schema Changes
      • Dsco Warehouse Code / Dsco Warehouse Dsco ID / Dsco Warehouse Retailer Code:
        • "Dsco Warehouse Code": This field is used to track the supplier's warehouse code for each item.
        • "Dsco Warehouse Dsco ID": This ID is generated by Dsco when a warehouse is submitted within the Inventory/Product/Catalog file for an item. 
        • "Dsco Warehouse Retailer Code": If the retailer chooses to map the supplier's warehouse code to their own, this field will be used to show the retailer's code.
      • Line Item Warehouse Dsco ID / Line Item Warehouse Retailer Code: At the item level, the retailer can submit the warehouse code (the supplier's, the Dsco ID, or their own retailer warehouse code) for the warehouse they wish each item to be shipped from.

      • Requested Warehouse Code / Requested Warehouse Dsco ID/ Requested Warehouse Retailer Code: At the order level, the retailer can submit the warehouse code (the requested supplier's, the requested Dsco ID, or their own requested retailer warehouse code) for the warehouse they wish the entire order to be shipped from.

      • Ship Warehouse Code / Ship Warehouse Dsco ID / Ship Warehouse Retailer Code: Based on the recommended supplier's warehouse code, these fields will be sent to the supplier to reflect where the item/order should be fulfilled from.

      • Package Warehouse Code / Package Warehouse Retailer Code / Package Warehouse Dsco ID: Depending on where the order is shipped from, the supplier will return these fields within their Shipment & Invoice files to show the actual warehouse location it shipped from. The "Requested", "Dsco", and "Ship" fields can also be returned within the Shipment file to compare where it shipped from versus what was requested, what was recommended, etc.

      • NOTE: All the above fields are included in the Invoice file EXCEPT the "package" fields.

    • For more information please take a look at our Dsco Data Schema page.

  • Lots of Bugs Squashed: For this release we flagged and squashed five bugs!
