New Video for TATEMS Version

The video below shows you the new features added to TATEMS version released Mar 22, 2019

This includes a huge time saver, that allows you to edit a work order from the Parts Inventory Screen instead of the old way of having to:

1. Note the Equipment Number Note
2. Note the Work Order Number
3. Close the Parts Inventory Screen
4. Go find the equipment
5. Find the work order
6. Then open the work order for editing.

Now… instead of doing all that, you can just double click on the Work Order in “Where This Part Installed List” on the Parts Inventory Screen

The current update is available here:

In the video below I show you the new Auto Resizing feature we are adding to TATEMS starting with version 4.6.24v (scheduled for release the first week of October 2018)

You may want to go to full screen on the above video to get a better feel for this cool new feature.

This feature is may cause instability of TATEMS on some systems causing unannounced shutdowns of TATEMS in which case you would need to keep the Auto Resizing feature turned off.

We will continue to make improvements to this feature in order to mitigate any instability issues people experience after version 4.6.24v is released.

The feature will be turned off by default.
