  • Corrected issue where Door Takeoff Entry window drop down list of Hardware Sets was not showing any entries.

  • A new Print Option has been provided to suppress 'Address info' on Packing Slip, Sales Order, Purchase Order and Quote.
  • Enterprise security has two new items:
    • 'Bypass Cost of Sales Account validation':
      • This was introduced to allow system administrators to control manual general ledger entries affecting costs charged to 'Orders'.  For those accountants wanting to reconcile the Profit & Loss Statement - Cost Of Sales values to other reports such as the Sales Journal or other data warehouse reporting, this provides the opportunity to control general ledger entries to ensure that any amounts charged to an account classified as 'Cost Of Sales' will require the user to enter the applicable 'Order #'. The opposite is also true, where a charge to a Non-Cost of Sales account will not allow an Order # to be recorded with that entry. Note - the following account classes are considered 'Cost of Sales':
        • Cost of Sales
        • Cost of Sales - Taxes
        • Cost of Sales - Adjustments
      • This new security item is being set automatically to 'Checked' as part of the initial implementation of this control (meaning validation is not performed and security checking will be performed as was normally performed before this change).  This security item is listed under 'General Ledger/Bank Deposit', 'Journal Entry' and 'Payables/Payable'.  
    • 'Release Payable with line item that has a zero cost'
      • We now provide the flexibility for system administrators to relax the Payable entry rule to deny the entry of a zero dollar 'Payable Unit Cost'. 
      • This new security item is being set automatically to 'Checked' as part of the initial implementation of this control (meaning validation of non-zero values will be performed as was normally performed before this change).  This security item is listed under  'Payables/Payable'.  
    • The  Advantage 'Complete window' tool bar item 'Advanced Opening Duplication' will now require the selected openings to have the opening hand populated before proceeding. 
    • The WIP Valuation window has a new column checkbox to indicate if product is in Pool.
    • The Font size has been Increased for the Opening Number string in the Packing Slip.
    • The Project Window, Section Tab 'Due Date' now provides for a 'Due Time'.
    • The Advantage 'Complete window' no longer defaults the 'EXT' column value to "N" when adding new openings.
    • The Quote and Sales Order entry window, Door/Frame configurator, now provides selection list of all Door and Frame manufacturer parts (not just the primary door or frame manufacturer).
