Changes in Interlink Circulation Version 2.6.1:

Features
  • [7033] We added an option to pre-calculate full pilferage for racks when you close issue. To enable this option, use Tools > Properties Editor, search for “prec” to find the property “Precalculate full pilferage at rack draw time”, click Edit, check the box and click OK, then Close to return to the main screen.
  • [8288] We added a feature to eDoc submissions that prints a bar code for each submitted postage statement on your Job ID Report, with each postage statement on a separate page for the Post Office to scan when you drop off your mailing. This makes it easier for your Post Office to locate your eDoc in the PostalOne! system.
  • [9958] We changed the way the “Minimum papers per pallet” value is calculated on the summary page of the Periodical Mailroom Report to prevent accidental truncation during division that could result in the value being one less than it should be.
  • [10202] We added the ability to designate mail entry points at a finer- grained level than just 5-digit ZIP, using sublists.
  • [10220] We added a Smart Sampling option to decline the return of undeliverable sample copies mailed using approved types of simplified addressing, which are automatically applied to the all Smart Sampled mailing labels along with a service type ID declining the return of the mail piece.
  • [10540] We increased the width of the payment Check/Receipt Number field from 10 characters to 30. There’s not enough space to display all 30 at once, so on the Receive Payment screen the field auto-scrolls as you type and the Payments Report only prints the last 18 characters when the field holds more than 18 characters.
  • [10687] We added the ability to disable small bundles for periodical mailings by adding a new property named Min Papers Per Overflow Bundle that you can set using Tools > Properties Editor. The default value is 1 and the intended value range is from 1 through 6. Using values outside of this range may cause unpredictable results.
Improvements
  • [9370] We added more fields to the main screen’s field selection list.
  • [9734] We added Active Newspaper with Print and Digital Delivery to the Show drop-down list.
  • [10118] We separated Alternate Mail Entry from a single button on the General Tab under File > Configure List into separate buttons on the Periodical Mail and Marketing Mail tabs. We changed the name of the Mail Entry Type field to Entry Discount to more accurately reflect its purpose. We converted the Use Default Edition checkbox to a Use Custom Edition checkbox for Periodical Mail only (it is converted automatically the first time you open your list). We added checkboxes for which USPS forms to create (postage statement and/or PVDS form, depending on mailing type and their values are automatically inferred the first time you open your list). Instead of having a single choice for Post Office of Entry, we now have separate choices for Verification Location and Entry Location and we renamed the Postal Sort Values section to Postal Sort Options. Rather than make the Additional Mail Entry Details dialog taller, we placed these three sections in a tabbed subsection.
  • [10450] We updated Dealer Bills to print the number of decimal places you’ve configured on new dealer bills for all values other than the Balance Forward and Balance Due, both of which are still rounded to two decimal places.
  • [10657] We updated Sack and Tray tags to show when a combined mailing sack or tray has mixed content.
  • [10658] We added new sections to the Mailroom Report. One of the new sections shows which sacks or trays have mixed content. The other new section shows which sacks or trays, if any, go on which APC or pallet.
  • [10660] We added support for sacks or trays on APCs or pallets.
  • [10675] Because the P indicator on a mailing label key line can refer to either a package or a pallet, we changed the indicator for a package to B for bundle.
  • [10676] We added a variety of pallet-related information to the Mailroom Report for those of you that use pallets.
  • [10757] We updated the Kansas Sales Task Update task for 1Q2021.
  • [10864] We removed the non-IMb versions of the Citizen CLP-621 and CL-S621 advanced drivers after contacting all Circulation users of those drivers and having them switch to the IMb versions.
  • [10926] We removed the automatic backup that used to be done when you open your list in a new version of Circulation for the first time.
  • [10932] We now send your publication name as your customer description when submitting periodical mail eDoc and your publication title when submitting marketing mail eDoc. In the case were the name or title is blank, we substitute your list name, which was previously used for all eDoc submissions.
Fixes
  • [10222] We corrected an error that result in CSV renewals being sorted incorrectly.
  • [10257] We corrected an error that could cause periodical mail pieces with a PO Box address in a ZIP code in the B001 exception table to be charged at a higher rate than needed if the mailing doesn’t meet deflection standards.
  • [10296] We corrected our postal sort to add non-sequenced pieces to the end of basic carrier routes, in order to avoid creating 3- or 5-digit bundles, like it already does for high-density and saturation carrier routes.
  • [10357] We corrected display errors in the Locked List Encountered dialog that cut off some of the message text.
  • [10358] We added a confirmation dialog that pops up when you cancel sending your list to Interlink.
  • [10371] We corrected an error that prevented a low volume left-over special MADC pallet from being converted into a sack or tub.
  • [10718] We added an option to print your publication name instead of your list name on your Bundle Tops Newspapers and/or your Bundle Tops Shoppers reports. To activate this option, choose the appropriate report under Tools > Default Report Values and check the new Print Publication Name option.
  • [10752] We Improved the layout of the Notification and Expiration Schedule dialog.
  • [10759] We corrected an error that could cause your eDoc submission to fail if you are using pallets.
  • [10807] We corrected an error that could cause the last piece of a large firm bundle to be split out into a different bundle.
  • [10813] We corrected an earned income calculation error that resulted in a restarted expired subscription to earn for the full month instead of a partial month if it was restarted later than the first of the month.
  • [10934] We corrected a postal sort error that failed to price non-automation 5-digit scheme bundles.
  • [10947] We corrected an error in Circulation 2.6 with carrying the base weight forward for Periodical Mailings with preset insert weights.
