  • Added Sync Option for Upload Only – a new option called “Upload Only” is available from the Synchronization Options. When the option is turned on, resources and tasks get uploaded from the desktop software to the selected organization on the web. However, new resources on the web do not get downloaded.

  • Added Support for Fore/Aft offset on ISOXML – the Advanced Settings of Read Job Data for ISOXML data now includes a “Fore/Aft” option where you can select whether or not you want to use the settings from the display. In the past the software did not utilize these delays.

  • Fixed Tank Mixes for Multiple Fields – updated the software so that when you manually record the use of a tank mix to multiple fields, the tank mixes all show on the same line of the Job Properties/Farming box. This makes it possible to enter the total used and have it allocate across the fields.

  • Renumber of Section Lines – WM-Subsurface software can renumber section lines when a line is removed from sequence. A Renumber button is available so that all lines are numbered in sequence.
  • Added Buffer Distance for Extending Lines to Boundary – WM-Subsurface software can now extend one or more lines to the boundary unless a buffer distance is entered.  If a buffer distance is used, the line will stop when it gets within distance of the boundary.
  • Minimum Auto-Pipe Sizing – WM-Subsurface software offers more flexibility within the auto-pipe sizing feature. You can now enter a minimum pipe size for each type of pipe (main, sub-main and lateral).  In previous versions you could only enter one minimum pipe size.
