Currently, every time an assessment is networked to another AudaEnterpriseGold user, the assessment is re-calculated en-route. This is designed to ensure that both parties, sender and receiver, have the very latest figures on which to base negotiations and authorisations.
• Labour times for new and updated models are updated monthly
• Parts price updates are updated as and when by the manufacturer
However, there may be situations where a re-calculation may not always be desirable. For example, if the assessment has been in progress for some time and costs are assumed to be historical for whatever reason, or simply a copy assessment has been requested. The user should be aware that in these cases, there is a risk that the costs may change when networking as a result of recalculation, and could potentially even trigger other services and changes e.g. AudaSource substitutions.
The ability to be able to send an assessment without re-calculation has been identified as a change request by the Technical Committee and will be considered when the current infrastructure allows it.
If the reason for sending an old assessment is simply to provide another copy, you may want to consider emailing the assessment report as a pdf, or if the other user has AudaExpress they should be able to view a current version within the database.
