    New Banner

    The Sage One site banner has been restyled to allow for more on-screen space.

    • Search bar has moved into the banner section.
    • The logout button along with the My Profile link are now included under the subscription users initials.
    • The Help, Contact Support and Company Settings links have been replaced with icons.
    • The company name that you are logged into has been moved into the banner section.
    • [NEW] A drop down alongside the company name displays a list of your 5 most recent companies logged into.

    View Invoice GP

    You will now be able to view the profitability of your sales as you are raising a Tax Invoice or a Quote.

    • This feature has its own user access under Customers > Tax Invoices and will initially be disabled for both existing and new users. This option will need to be turned on under user permissions.
    • The View Invoice GP option can be found under the Options drop down button on the document screen.
    • The GP is calculated based on the exclusive selling price on the invoice in relation to either the Average Cost or the Last Cost of the Items selected.

    Detailed Add-on-the-fly

    The Customer and Supplier add-on-the-fly popups have been updated throughout the application to allow you to capture all the Masterfile information at the time of adding the Customer or Supplier.

    Tabs have been used to keep the popup minimalistic and user friendly for those users who only wish to capture the bare minimum.

    Release: September 2016

    Some users prefer to post their Payroll Journals into Sage One themselves and you can now choose to prevent Sage One Payroll posting directly.

    Updates in this Release

    • Trial Balance: Additional date options and custom dates have been added.
    • Report Filters: Years will now be displayed as the financial year-end date. For example: Financial Year 1 March 2016 to 28 February 2017 will no longer be referred to as the 2016 year, but 2017.
    • Transaction User Defined Fields: Transaction user defined fields have been implemented on Banking and Journals. To add additional information to your transactions, access the user defined fields from the Detail section in Banking and Journals.

    Banking Changes – Duplicate Transactions

    Based on feedback we have received from many of our customers, we have made the following changes for duplicates:

    • Duplicates Found: This will no longer open up the Detail section and require you to select View Duplicates – it will automatically open the Possible Duplicate Transactions pop-up.
    • Keep Duplicates: A new bulk action button has been added to select to keep duplicate transactions.

    Support Notifications

    Remember to regularly check our Support Notifications page for updates and bank feed delays or issues.

    After a successful beta for Multi-Currency and Time Tracking, these features will remain free until 30 September 2016. From 1 October, there will be a charge of R79 per month, per company.
