New Features in Version 7.5.3

This week we’ve a number of small changes and additional features included as part of our release program:


Complex number scheme: This functionality enables you to have company specific PO number schemes for each company. With many companies in the system we’ve been told by a good few clients that auditors would prefer that each company has a different PO designation and numbers.

To help with this the scheme can now be set to:

[company code] – [department code] – [requisition or order prefix] – [po number]

This does make the number a little bit longer, but does help to pick out which department and company the PO originated from just from looking at it.

Received date added to the purchase orders CSV report: To help calculate accrual figures it can be useful to know when the order was closed. To avoid breaking any excel macros that you have, we’ve positioned it at the end of the report.

Added rejection notes to the notification email: Just to save a bit of time, the rejection notes are now displayed in the rejection email. They’re still displayed within the audit trail as well.


Bug fixes:

We fixed a small issue with data coming across from Twinfield for clients on any cluster apart from C2. Data should now come across much quicker.

On older versions of Internet Explorer if you deleted a line item when editing a item that had been received, the system would not allow the line to be changed. This has been fixed.

GL codes were displaying slowly when there were over 1000 in the system. The stored procedure was changed and is now much quicker.


Things you might not know:


  1. Did you know that GL codes can now be company specific? If you have multiple companies but the nominal structure isn’t the same across them all, create specific codes for each individual company.
  2. Did you also know that each supplier can have multiple supplier codes? Again, each company in your accounts package may have the same supplier with different codes depending on what company you’re working with. To make that easier you can specify that for company A its code X, but for company B it is code Y.
  3. We’ve now got a module for importing invoices to Sage 200.


As always, let us know if you’ve any questions about how to use the new features or why they might be useful. Training is free so make the most of it!
