Version 4.8.3 contains bug fixes and a number of significant enhancements.

Approvals

We’ve made a number of related usability and logical changes in Approvals based on customer feedback:

  • Fewer buttons to click 

    When a user of an approval profile clicks Commit Approvals, the system will prompt for the calculation and posting of modified lines if they haven’t already been calculated and posted.

  • You can now associate an approval status value with a status value – 

    Suppose that you have two statuses for project work – Charge, and Free. You may now associate a Rejected approval status with the Free status so that when you assign Rejected to a transaction in an Approval Profile the status of the transaction will automatically be set to Free.

  • Controlled re-evaluation of approverWhen a primary approver queries a transaction to another project manager and the other project manager changes the project (or any other value) you can now specify that the Returned status should lead to re-evaluation of who should be the primary approver for the transaction. Until now re-evaluation only occurred for Null approval status values, and this required that the primary project manager change the Returned status to a Null status to ensure that the transaction is then be presented to the appropriate primary approver. This is no longer necessary with the right configuration.
  • Invoice preventionUntil this release it was not possible to prevent the invoicing of a transaction if an approval status definition was linked to conditions in an inquiry profile. For example, if you were to set up two approval stages, the second dependant on the first being completed (and therefore requiring the definition of triggering conditions in an inquiry profile) it was not possible to prevent invoicing of a transaction based on the second approval status. Now it is.
  • You may now set a relative cut-off date(e.g. transaction dates 100 days before the current date) to improve performance during the determination of approvals by the Approvals process

 

Additional Enhancements

  • We have enhanced the Splitting tool in forms, so that a user can now split to more than two rows, and also by percentage.
  • We have made it possible for the selection tool to be used (as opposed to a combo) in forms, timesheets and profiles in the PSW even for analysis values that belong to a non-validated analysis category.
  • We have extended our work on Ledger Export so that names for exported fields specified by the user can be passed to XML and used in XSL. We will also shortly be publishing details of three programs we can provide to assist in the preparation of files for import into other systems.
