    Budget Updates

    • Changes to Budget entries that have corresponding work assignments (Resource Board entries) are not synchronized and this results in double entries in the Resource Board. Each budget entry contains a budget entry number:
      • The user can choose how changes to budget entries affect existing work assignments. The new field called Work Assignment Action is added to the Budget Matrix (and Budget Matrix with Capacity).
        • Work Assignment Action: Specifies how a work assignment is affected when a change is made to a budget entry. Changes made to budget entries that are paired with work assignments may be viewed in the Budget Work Assignment Journal.

    Project Updates

    • Customers would like to increase the character length of the Project Posting Group Code field on the Project Card to avoid an error in Calculate WIP “The length of the string is xx, but it must be less than or equal to 10 characters. VALUE: DIRECT COST”:
      • The Project Posting Group Code field set to a length of 20 characters.
    • Customers request the ability to associate contracts to their projects based on both bill-to customer and sell-to customer:
      • The lookup list of contracts on the Project Card has been expanded to consider bill-to and sell-to customer.

    Time Updates

    • Customer requested the ability to create Project Ledger usage entries when the warehouse shipment is posted. The attempted post resulted in a message “You cannot post usage for job ‘xxxxx’ because a quantity remains to be picked”:
      • Resolution: Enhanced functionality that allows the warehouse shipment to be posted and corresponding usage entry is created.

    Additional Enhancements and Bug Fixes

    This release also includes bug fixes to Contracts, Costing & Pricing, Setup, Vacation/Flex and WIP.
