Global Enhancements

Here are some of the new features focused on automation and time-saving efficiency:

Auto-Complete for G/L Account Numbers – This new feature for general ledger account numbers allows you to enter any portion of the account number, main account, account description, or account group as it auto-populates a list of matching options to choose from.

Copy Feature for Custom Lookup Views – A new copy button added to the User Lookup Wizard means that a custom lookup for one user or company can be easily applied to others without having to re-generate the query from scratch every time.

Message Enhancements – To ensure you have quick and easy access to the information you need, some message windows throughout the product now have a “More Info” link with added details and related help topics.

Paperless Office Enhancements

In the Paperless Office module, a new message editor has been added to Electronic Delivery Message Maintenance allowing you to change text formatting (i.e. color, font, size, bold), create bulleted and numbered lists, and even insert links and images. The size of the message field has expanded from 4,096 characters before to 7,168 in Sage 100 2019. In addition, three new merge fields have been added including CustomerPoNO, InvoiceDueDate, and ShipDate. Lastly, a wide variety of options have been added for emailing forms.

Inventory Management

An Item Quantity Inquiry button has been added to the Lines tab in Physical Count Entry that displays quantity information for the selected item. You can click the arrow next to this button and select “Item Inquiry” to open the Item Inquiry window, or select “Item Memo” to view, create, or maintain memos for the selected item. In addition, new options allow you to “Include Inactive Items in Physical Count” which includes inactive items in the worksheet as well as an option to “Print Variances Only” that omits items with no variance from printing on the register.
