1. More than 32 Report Options in Report Group

In the Report Group window, you now can have more than 32 report options listed/available to you, where in prior versions only 32 reports were allowed in a group. This functionality was added for all the Report Group windows under all modules: System, Company, Financial, Sales, Purchasing, Inventory, Payroll, and Project.

2. Ability to Change Approvers for an Active Workflow Task

Functionality has been added to give the user the ability in Workflow to change approvers on an existing workflow task that is active and has current documents pending approval from that approver. This could be used if an Approver has left the company and they have active workflows. It’s also is useful for when someone is on vacation, or unexpectedly gone and Workflow items need approval.

3. Web Client Excel Copy and Paste General Ledger Journal

You can now import journal entry lines from an Excel file using the Paste button on the menu bar of the General Ledger Transaction Entry window. Just like the desktop client, the format of the data in your Excel file is the same with the exception that you must not have a header line on your file.
