New Features Arriving with Sage 100 ERP 2015 – Vol. 2: G/L Enhancements

Sage 100 ERP 2015 was released in March, 2015, and early reviews are positive. In our last article, we reviewed new global and system features in the 2015 release. Today, we’ll give you a look at enhancements to the General Ledger module.

It’s been quite a while since Sage introduced the ability to keep a report window open after printing or previewing the report. Many users, however, lamented that the same functionality was not available in Financial Report printing. Finally, in Sage 100 ERP 2015, we have that ability, with the addition of a “Keep Window Open” box on the Financial Reports window:

Sage spent much time consulting with partners and users about which enhancements they wanted to see. Many indicated that they always want to print full comments on journals and registers, yet they always had to first select the option to print the comments. In version 2015, Sage 100 ERP will now remember the selection made and default to that selection until it is again changed.

We’ve saved the best for last: have you ever had to perform a reversal on a payroll entry using General Journal Entry, or any other transaction with what seemed like a jillion lines? The “easy” way used to be to copy the original entry, and then reverse the amounts manually, which was great until you got to the end and didn’t balance due to dyslexic fingers or misplaced decimals. Now, in Sage 100 ERP 2015, we finally have what users have been clamoring for: One-Click Journal Reversals!

This feature will be available via General Ledger Account Maintenance. All you have to do is go to one of the accounts included in the transaction to be reversed, select the transaction on the Transactions Tab, and click the Reversal button.

Of course, you still want to review the entry prior to updating, so when you open General Journal Entry, the reversal will be waiting for you, including a comment that the entry is a reversal.

All that is left to do now is to confirm the numbers, print and post the General Journal.

These are your Sage 100 ERP 2015 enhancements to the General Ledger module. Next up: Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable.

Happy Memorial Day!
