Revenue recognition

Revenue recognition allows you to define revenue prices and revenue schedules for multi-element sales of hardware, software, support, and subscriptions to fulfill US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) requirements.

  • Revenue prices - Revenue prices can be defined on released products and then used to determine the price at which to recognize revenue. The revenue price can differ from the sale price that is offered to the customer.

  • Revenue schedules- Revenue schedules determine the number of months for the revenue deferral. Options are available to create the schedule based on actual days of the month, splitting equally across the month, or based on a set number of occurrences.

  • Multiple sales order reallocation - Reallocation allows the revenue price to be recalculated after a new sales order line is added to an invoiced sales order or to a new sales order. The new line will be reallocated if the additional item should be have been included in the original contractual agreement.

  • Workspace - The new workspace is used to review the status of the revenues schedule records created for deferred revenue.

Cancel bank reconciliation

Users will be able to cancel bank reconciliations in chronological order of reconciliation starting with the most recent. History is tracked to show when and by whom the reconciliation was reversed. This will prevent users from having to manually adjust journals to correct any errors that occurred during the periodic process.

Create checks with a blank status on the Checks page

The Checks page is where you perform maintenance tasks on checks, such as creating new check numbers and deleting checks. When this feature is enabled, you cannot create checks with a blank status during the payment process, which results in wasted check stock.

Reset workflow status for vendor invoices

You can use the Workflow history page to reset the workflow status to Draft. This page can be opened from the Vendor invoice page or by going to Common > Inquires > Workflow. To reset the workflow status to Draft, select Recall. You can also reset the workflow status to Draft by selecting the Recall action on either the Vendor invoice or Pending vendor invoices page. After the workflow status is reset to Draft, it becomes available for editing on the Vendor invoice page.

Dual currency consolidation

This feature helps you control the currency (either the accounting or reporting currency) that is used as the transaction currency in the consolidation company. You can also automatically copy amounts from the source company to the consolidation company, if the currencies are the same.

  • Add the “Select consolidation amount from” control on the consolidate online form - When this feature is enabled, the user can choose whether the accounting currency or the reporting currency from the source company will be used as the transaction currency in the consolidation company.

  • Directly copy amounts from the source company to the consolidation company if the currencies are the same - When the feature is enabled, the accounting or reporting currency amounts from the source company will be copied directly to the accounting or reporting currency amounts in the consolidation company if either of the currencies are the same. The accounting and reporting currency amounts in the consolidation company are calculated using the exchange rate if neither of the currencies is the same.

Gender in currency declension for Eastern Europe

You can now define the currency gender. On Currencies page, select Declension. In the Gender field, select Masculine, Feminine, or Neuter. This parameter may have influence on declension of the amount written in text in local language on a Cash order. For example, if the amount of 1,01 EUR is written in English text as One euro 01 cent on a cash order, when you set up Gender for EUR currency as Neuter, this amount will be translated to Czech language and written on a cash order as Edno euro 01 cent.

For information about existing functionality, see Update how amounts are displayed on reports and documents.

Cash control (Public Sector)

Cash control lets you define a limit (threshold) to prevent transactions from being posted if no cash balance is available, or if the transaction will cause the balance to fall below the defined limit. Accounts payable vendor invoices and General ledger advanced ledger entries are validated when they are created, edited, and posted. If transaction posting will cause the related cash account's balance to be reduced below the limit that is defined for the account, the user receives an error message and must change the account to continue.

Forecast position distribution (Public Sector)

You can maintain financial dimension default templates for forecast positions by using the controls on the Financial dimensions FastTab on the Forecast position page. The grid in the upper part of the FastTab shows all the distribution lines together with their percentage. The lower part of the FastTab shows the forecast position's default dimensions.

You can validate whether the default dimensions for a forecast position are correct for your organization's chart of accounts. For any forecast position, on the Forecast position page, select Validate on the Action Pane to determine whether the setup of financial dimensions for that forecast position is valid. This validation is quick and can help you identify errors before you generate a budget plan from a forecast position. You can also validate multiple forecast positions at the same time on the Forecast positions page.

Deferred put

The deferred processing functionality lets warehouse workers continue to do other work while the put operation is processed in the background. Deferred processing is useful when many work lines must be processed and the worker can let that work be processed asynchronously. It's also useful when the server can have ad-hoc or unplanned increases in processing time, and the increased processing time might affect the user's productivity.

For more information, see Deferred processing of warehouse work

Journal unlock

A new button is available on the journal page to unlock a journal that has a status of Locked by system set to Yes. This unlock can be performed by an administrator of the system who has analyzed any executing batch jobs and confirmed this journal is no longer actively being processed by a batch job. This button is enabled by the feature named Journal Unlock button on the Feature management page.
