New Features Inspired by Customers and Consultants
Through the Sage 100 Ideas Website, the development team at Sage encourages customers and consultants to submit ideas for new features, many of which are incorporated into the product. Here’s a look at just a few of the top ideas that have been rolled out so far in 2022.
Exclude Inactive Items from Lookups
A “Display Inactive Items” check box has been added to the ALE Lookups section in Company Maintenance. You can now select/deselect this check box to include/exclude inactive items from Lookups. Refer to this tutorial for more detail on this feature.
Option to Save Date Selections for Reports
When creating or modifying a report setting, you can now specify whether you want to save the dates entered in the Selections grid. To save the dates, select the “Save Date Selections” check box that has been added to the “Save As Report Setting” window. Clear the check box to omit the dates from the report setting. The check box is selected by default.
Search for Quotes
A Quotes check box has been added to the “Search for Open Orders” window accessed from the Sales Orders tab in Customer Maintenance. You can now select this check box to search for quotes for the current customer.
More Options When Uploading Images
When you’re uploading images in Item Maintenance, you can now use the following additional image types: JPEG, PNG, and TIFF. These are in addition to image file types that were previously available for upload which include JPG, GIF and BMP.
“Order Type” Options in Sales Order Search
When searching for orders using the “Search for Sales Orders” window, you can select check boxes corresponding to the order types to include in your search results. All sales order types are now available, including quotes, master orders, and repeating orders. Also, a “Quoted” field has been added to the bottom of the tab which displays the item’s quantity used in Sales Order quotes.
View Order Type, Ship Date, and Expire Date in History
Based on popular request, the following fields have been added to the Sales Order and Quote History Inquiry window: Order Type, Ship Date (for standard orders and back orders) and Expire Date (for quotes).
