Example of System Password entry

 
Renaming of Payable Windows to "Payments" instead of "Checks"

New feature:

  • The Payables Management Check Windows have now been renamed to "Payments" to give a broad definition to windows for different types of vendor payments: EFT, credit cards payments and so on.

 

Example of name change in Edit Payment Batch Window

 
Autocomplete - Web Client

New feature:

  • Ability to have fields autocomplete in the Web Client as they do in the Desktop Client. 

Example of fields autocomplete in Customer Maintenance Window

 
Add Password on SmartList Favourites

New feature:

  • Users have the options to put in a unique password on SmartList favourites. This will allow tight control as each password can be different instead of a system set password. 

Example of adding password on SmartList Favourites

 

Shortcut to SmartList within the Web Client

New feature:

  • The shortcut has been added to the banner for SmartList to allow for quicker navigation. Users who have access to the SmartList window will see it, and those who do not have the security authorisation will not see the shortcut. 

Example of shortcut to SmartList within the Web Client

 

Maximise Window in Bank Reconciliation - Web Client

New feature:

  • Within the Web Client, the user can now maximise the Bank Reconciliation window. This means that the user carrying out a reconcile can see more transactions within the window, reducing the amount of scrolling needed to find transactions.

Bank Reconciliation Additional Sorting Options

New feature:

  • Within the Bank Reconciliation Window, the user will have more customisation options to sort the window so it is easier to find transactions during the reconciliation process.
