Upgrade Considerations

Woohaa! Data Caching Upon Login Using the Included DemoUS Database

    • Upon signing-in to the installed DemoUS database the first time, a cache database is automatically created to store standard data from the Woohaa! Server (since the DemoUS database is pre-enrolled to Woohaa!). You may encounter a caching error when logging-in the first time from a client machine since the system does not allow the creation of cache database remotely

      Workaround: You need to create the cache database manually using the included DBMC. After creating the cache database, you should be able to login to the DemoUS Company.

Woohaa! User Validation

    • For cloud customers, you will notice that it takes a while to sign-in using the installed DemoUS database. This is due to the Woohaa! Connection service that validates the user upon logging-in. You may contact our Support Team to disable the system from connecting to the internet to validate users. Note: FOR INSTALLED DEMOUS ONLY.

Known Issues and Limitations

Connected Sale

    • Preference for computing tax after deducting discount is not yet supported.
      Tax is still being applied in receipt for Service and Nonstock items when Tax by Location is turned on. It only occurs if the selected customer has tax setup.
