The OperationsCommander web application has an upcoming maintenance release. Please take some time to review this information to assess the impact on your production environment and workflow.
The updates will be available on preview sites November 5, 2018 and released to production environments November 12, 2018.
New - Bulk User Type Change Tool
This tool allows Admins to change User Types in bulk. This is useful for clients that have different parking options based on User Type. For example, if Freshmen parkers only have access to certain lots you will need to change them to the Sophomore User Type next year, so that the new options will become available to you. The Bulk User Type Change tool is new to OPS-COM. For more information about this feature, refer to this wiki article.
New - Template & Design Area
OperationsCommander is improving the system to give clients more control over the look and feel of pages on the User Portal. These pages must be configured by an Admin with HTML knowledge. We will be releasing more information as it becomes available.

This report allows you to view all processed payments for permits in a given time frame. Results are broken down by lot and have HST is separated. This report is exportable to excel.

There are now three dates associated with invoices in OPS-COM. They are:
