For many years now, Sage has provided a platform for customers to submit their ideas and make Sage 100 even better. Several of those ideas were incorporated into the Sage 100 2021 release and subsequent product updates that we’ll take a closer look at in this article.

New DBA Fields for 1099 Forms in Vendor Maintenance

Based on customer feedback, DBA (doing business as) name and address fields have been added to the Additional tab in Vendor Maintenance and the Vendor Maintenance On-the-Fly window.

  • If a DBA name is entered, it prints on the vendor’s 1099 form in addition to the vendor name.
  • If a DBA address is entered, it prints on the vendor’s 1099 form instead of the vendor address.

Security Option to Delete or Overwrite Companies

A new security option, “Allow Delete/Overwrite Live and Archive Companies,” has been added in Role Maintenance. When this check box is selected, users assigned to that role will be able to delete or overwrite companies with “Live” or “Archive” selected as the type. A message pops up to confirm the intention to delete or overwrite the company before completing the action.

Note: Similarly, several security-related enhancements, requested by customers, have been made to simplify the security setup process.

Expanded Check Number Field

The check number field has been expanded to hold 10 characters. Task windows, forms, and reports have been updated to reflect this change, which is carried through to Accounts Payable, Bank Reconciliation, General Ledger, Payroll (requires Payroll v2.21 or later), and Purchase Order.

Default Delivery Options in Paperless Office

A new “Default Delivery Options” task has been added to the Paperless Office Setup menu. Use this task to make default form selections that are automatically set in the Paperless Office Delivery Options window when creating a new customer or vendor record. You can change these defaults if needed. (Note: this feature is only available with a Sage 100 Subscription license).
