We are pleased to announce the release of Cosmetri version 1.2. Important features and updates are described below.
New enhancements and features:
- Export formula as .xls
- New checkbox to set requirement for MSDS document
- CAS no. auto-complete for raw materials
- Product SKU code auto-complete
- Easier searching by CAS number
- Ingredients notes enhancements
Note: this feature is disabled in trial accounts.
In the formula composition tab you can now export your formula as .xls format. This outputted file includes a complete raw materials composition and separate ingredients breakdown, with all percentages, INCIs and CAS numbers. It's now easier than ever to create trial formulas and send these to your team or safety assessor.
You can now set any raw material so that an MSDS file is not required, thus preventing any auto-task being generated. For existing raw materials the new rule will not be triggered unless you open the raw material and then save it. Please check with your safety assessor and/or supplier if you are unsure what setting to use.
Saving a few seconds on repetitive tasks can make a significant difference in the longer term! You therefore no longer need to manually enter a CAS number for a raw material. CAS numbers for each ingredient in a multi-ingredient raw material are added automatically, separated by a comma. To enter a CAS number manually and override the auto-setting just check the new checkbox shown below, which makes the CAS No(s) field editable. Remember to click on 'Save' to save your changes.
Existing raw materials in your account have the checkbox checked, ensuring that any CAS numbers you have entered will remain unchanged.
Another time saver - in the Product / Info tab you can now enable a checkbox to automatically insert any SKUs that you have entered for your different unit sizes in the 'Unit Sizes' tab. However, if you have a master SKU code for the bulk product (before filled into containers) we recommend that you uncheck the checkbox and manually enter this code. Remember to click on 'Save' to save your changes.
Existing products in your account have the checkbox unchecked, ensuring that any SKUs you have entered will remain unchanged.
Those pesky hyphens in CAS numbers can be a real pain! But no longer, thanks to this new update. No matter whether you enter 2082-817, 2-082-817 or 2082817 you'll find the same ingredient. No more 'missing' ingredients because of a mis-placed hyphen!
It's now easier than ever to create, edit, manage and find ingredients notes. For any ingredient just click on the 'Notes' icon in the 'Actions' column to create a new note. Once a note exists for any ingredient you'll see an icon in the new 'Notes' column of the ingredients view. Click on the arrow next to the column header to sort your current list view to show all ingredients that have associated notes.
We've also made some improvements to the way ingredients notes are stored and edited:
Exciting new features and enhancements are in the pipeline - details to be announced soon!
