Although the lookup control has always had internal support for multiple selections, the e-Quip client has never taken advantage of this. From version 3.7.8 this feature is now available within e-Quip.
While this is not appropriate for every lookup there are several situations where this can save some time. Adding spare parts to a job is a good example. Previously, to add each of the selected parts below to a job would have required 5 individual selections.
This can now be done with a single operation.
Naturally, the spare part location selection works exactly as it would if the parts were selected individually. Note also that the costs are updated as you would expect.
We will gradually roll-out this feature to all lookups where multiple selection is appropriate.
As always, any feedback would be much appreciated.
