Tradecloud1, The fourth release (pictures needed)
Tradecloud1 release 4 is released in QX of XXXX, this document will inform you about the improvements that are made in the Tradecloud1 supply chain platform. One of the major changes is in the architecture of the platform, Tradecloud1 it is now an event-based platform. You, as a user, will properly not notice this, but it will make the platform more stable because it will be able to process much more data. You will experience the following improvements, which will be illustrated below:
- New homepage called Dashboard
- N: N Network
- Communication & workflow become one: Tasks
- Email notifications
- Renewed Orders page
- New User interface
New homepage called Dashboard
The dashboard page is the first page you will see after logging in into the platform. In this page, you see all the activities that happened on the platform in chronological order. Activities that will be shown are:
- Order events
- Order line events
- Incoming & outgoing communication
You will not be able to do an activity yourself in the dashboard page, but you can open the order (line) that is related to an activity, using a hyperlink. Furthermore, you will be able to check some basic metrics in the dashboard page as shown in the picture

Tradecloud1 is now an N:N network, which basically means that suppliers are able to serve multiple customers using only 1 account.
Communication & workflow become Tasks
Another improvement in the user experience will be the way commination and workflow are handled. This is done in Tradecloud1 with one ‘’workflow’’ called Tasks. All order actions you have to do & incoming communication where you have to respond on will be listed in this page. So, this will practically by your To-Do list, which needs to be emptied. All actions you have to do can be done directly in the Tasks page, but if you need more detailed information or just want to see the order itself, you can open the order page by simply using the hyperlink.
When there is an action for you to be done, you will receive a Tasks notification in your email inbox. This Tasks notification will contain a link to you’re the Tasks page of your Tradecloud account. Of course, you can still decide by yourself how often you like to receive a notification in your inbox.

Renewed Orders page
The Orders pages are improved as well. Users do have the ability to decide be themselves which information will be shown in the order table. So, you are able to focus only on the information you need.
Furthermore, Tradecloud1 now works with a process status, logistical status and order labels. In the past an order could only have one status, say overdue. This means an order cannot be shipped and overdue at the same time. In Tradecloud1 this is possible, so a more precise status indication can be displayed. Also, it is possible now to filter on multiple statuses, for instance, on ‘’confirmed’’ & “shipped”.

As well the order detail & order line detail pages are improved. A Timeline is added where the changes in the order status are displayed which the time of the event. Also, data is sorted in a more logical way. There are three different columns, one for order data, one for data related to the buyer, and one for data related to the supplier. On topic, communication is still possible in these pages of course.
