Gateway Update Log: 2.25.45.23

Update Log: 2.25.45.23

ENHANCEMENT New search filters have been posted to the Agent dashboard in the Search Tile (Gateway ID and Merchant ID).  You can search for these numbers from the full Merchant Listing Page as well.
ENHANCEMENTMerchant Name, Gateway ID, and User Account Number have been added to the subject line and message body of Support Requests completed by your merchants.  They will be auto-filled based on the credentials with which the merchant is logged into the system.
ENHANCEMENTThe HPP documentation has been modified to reflect the date format we use everywhere in the API docs (YYYY-MM-DD)
ENHANCEMENTChanged the default selection of the Top Merchants By QTY/Volume tiles on the Agent Dashboard to be the “Current Month”.
FIXOn the Merchant Listing Page, the “Log In As” was not sorting with the rest of the functions in its row.  This has been corrected so it sorts properly.
FIX We changed the "No Results Found" panel on the User list to correctly hide after you click the Add New User button.

Gateway Update Log: 2.25.44.23

Update Log: 2.25.44.23

NEW FEATURE A new FileMaker code sample was developed for FileMaker 12 – newer.   The newest version is usable on Windows, Mac, and FileMaker Go!  It eliminates use of the Troi URL Plug-in which makes the new solution independent and completely free (Troi had expensive licensing fees).
ENHANCEMENT HPP now has the ability to disable "Add to Safe" checkbox so that cardholders cannot choose to tokenize their own data (thereby incurring a SAFE fee) if the merchant does not want them to have that option.
ENHANCEMENT HPP now features a Start Date & Time and an End Date& Time which will automatically enable and disable an HPP as the merchant would like.  Perfect for setting up limited run sale prices, event registration periods, and more.
ENHANCEMENT HPP documentation updated to include Start Date & Time and an End Date& Time and how to use them.
ENHANCEMENT TRANSAX Desktop has been changed to use the Chromium browser tool instead of Internet Explorer.  Additionally, the Chromium browser components are included in the Desktop application installer to help make Desktop independent of the local computer environment.
ENHANCEMENT Specific to merchants whom TRANSAX is billing directly – A new page has been created for Merchants whose accounts are overdue and has been locked.  Upon logging into an overdue account, Merchants will be shown both of the billing accounts on file, have the ability to update those accounts, and choose which account should be billed in order to pay their balance and unlock the account.  Merchants cannot access their account without paying the balance first.
FIX Searches on the Merchant Listing page did not include merchants under Sub-Agents.  It does now.
FIX The Detail View of the Settlement Report was not including the correct number of transactions, as was shown in the Summary View.  The Detail View was corrected to match the Summary View.
FIX The Virtual Terminal of TRANSAX Desktop now has Order Description field in the same location as the browser based Virtual Terminal.
FIX Hosted Payment Pages (HPP) a “Donation” label was updated to reflect current language of “Cardholder Specified Amount”.
