Sage 100 2019 Release 2 (aka Version 2019.2) is now available. This latest version of the software features a handful of global enhancements along with updates for Accounts Payable and Job Cost. Here’s a closer look at what’s new in Sage 100.
Automatic Update of Daily Transaction Register
A security event has been added to Role Maintenance that allows you to automatically update the Daily Transaction Register. For any series of journal and register updates that conclude with the Daily Transaction Register, you will not receive a prompt to print and update the register if the security event check box is selected for your role—it will print automatically.
Warning Message for Document Date
A Use Document Date Warning check box was added to the Preferences tab in Company Maintenance. After selecting this check box, you can enter a value in one or both of the following fields:
Document Date – Prior Periods to Allow Outside of Current Period
Document Date – Future Periods to Allow Outside of Current Period
These values are compared to the current period entered in the module’s Options to determine when a date falls outside of the valid date range. If you start to create a document with a date that falls outside of the valid range, you’ll receive one of two messages:
- If using the default date for that session, a warning message appears. You can click “OK” to continue.
- If you manually enter the date, a warning message asks if you want to proceed. If you click “Yes” to continue with the date entered, a record is written to the Activity Log.
Ability to Set Default Expense Distribution Table (AP)
An Expense Distribution Table field has been added in Vendor Maintenance. You can select a distribution table in this field, and it is then used as the default selection (which can be changed if needed) in Invoice Data Entry, Repetitive Invoice Entry, and Manual Check and Payment Entry. In addition, you can enter a new code in Vendor Maintenance to create an expense distribution table on the fly.
Department Access for Time Track Selection (Job Cost)
When departments are set up in the Payroll module, you no longer need access to all departments to run Time Track Selection. Instead, you can select all records associated with the departments to which you have access.
