Sage Construction Anywhere: Go Where the Work Takes You

CEO of CPA Technology Reaches Industry’s Audience on Cloud Technology

In this industry, a successful business does not run solely behind a desk.

Tip: Sage Timberline Office 9.8

Are you tired of wasting paper when entering journal entries or invoices? Sage Timberline Office 9.8 has a new feature that allows you to ‘print to file’ without having to name the file: > On the Desktop>Common Tasks>Tools>Options > Check the box to ‘Automatically print journal to file’ > Pick a folder and pick a naming convention for the file. Check the Help Screens for more information.

Get Out of the Weeds with Sage Timberline Office MyAssistant We’ve all felt like we’ve needed a weed whacker to get us “out of the weeds” when disarray prevents us from keeping a close eye on business operations. Some are even overwhelmed by the sheer volume of sticky notes strewn about the desk or stashed in random drawers intended for reminders or notes of importance. This is where Sage Timberline Office MyAssistant comes into play. Now part of the Sage Timberline Office, MyAssistant proactively identifies what needs to be done, just like having your own personal assistant. MyAssistant uses Microsoft Outlook to deliver timely automatic notifications where the user can select from over 330 prebuilt rules or customize their own according to their business needs. With automatic document distribution, report, spreadsheet, and email alert generation, communications are improved keeping you in the loop so you can act quickly to take advantage of opportunities and avoid costly issues. With MyAssistant:

•Identify vendors with insurance expiring in 30 days and send them a letter. •Send past due customers a list of their delinquent invoices. •Generate and distribute personalized reports on a regular schedule. •Notify executives when jobs drop below a profit threshold. •Send each project manager a list of costs codes that are over budget for their jobs. •Audit processes such as job, contract, or employee setup to ensure they are completed correctly. •And do much more!

Sage 100 Contractor Desktop Completely Refreshed, Completely Redesigned

Tip: Sage MAS 90/200 T Not sure of the order in which you need to close your Sage MAS 90/200 modules*?

Sage Master Builder is now Sage 100 Contractor. This change reflects Sage’s commitment to building an even stronger presence on the construction industry. Although the new name The order in which modules in Sage MAS 90/200 are closed during month and year-end is very important. Some modules maintain buckets of data by year (year-to-date, prior-year, etc.). These data receptacles are re-initialized during year-end processing. The period-end and year-end processes performed in one module often write data to another module, so closing the modules out of order may cause damage to your data. The first step to take is to make a backup of your company data. Year-End in Sage MAS 90 can only be “reversed” by restoring from a backup. Modules should be processed or closed in the following order — (after you back up your data!):

Order Closed

Module

Order

Closed

Module

1

System Wide Backup

9

T/C -Timecard

2

B/M - Bill of Materials

10

M/R - Magnetic Media

3

W/O - Work Order Processing

11

P/R - Payroll

4

B/C - Bar Code

12

A/R - Accounts Receivable

5

P/O - Purchase Order Processing

13

A/P - Accounts Payable

6

S/O - Sales Order Processing

14

J/C - Job Cost

7

I/M - Inventory Management

15

G/L - General Ledger

8

M/P - Material Requirements Planning

will take some getting used to, many of the new enhancements won’t. Smarter and easier to use, Sage 100 Contractor’s 2013 (version 18.1) release comes with a completely revised user desktop. You have more options for navigating around in the program, thanks to new Activity Centers that group similar work functions. The Activity Center tabs are an easy graphical way to view areas of Sage 100 Contractor by job function. The tabs are grouped in a workflow order. You can hide the menu tree and use the Activity Center tabs to navigate through the program. The tabs divide up the program into several main sections. Each tab has a drop-down menu associated with it. When you place your cursor on an Activity Center tab, the drop-down menu displays along with a process map in the main desktop. The system’s original (default) process maps are arranged in workflow order and allow you to easily see the entire task sequence. You can use the process maps as shortcuts to get to specific tasks and can be customized by each user as well. To edit, click the link on the bottom of the activity center, then select the task icon you want to change. Task icons provide an easy way to correlate the graphical icon to the menu item and are user-editable. The System Menu that is displayed when rightclicking is not changed, but the text visible to the user can be customized. Customizing the task icon allows you easily make the text fit your needs. The generic report title may not tell you that this is the report you need, so create a unique name that is specific and at-a-glance tells you what you need to know. You have two menu tabs available when logging into a Sage 100 Contractor company: 1) a default System Menu tab and 2) a customizable My Menu tab. The System Menu has stayed the same as previous versions, except for a couple of visual changes. The plus/minus signs have been replaced with arrows to better navigate the menu tree. The main header area, such as, 1-General Ledger has been bolded for easier viewing. A new menu, My Menu, only shows you the system modules you have security access to in Sage 100 Contractor. My Menu can be tailored to your workflow. You can customize the My Menu tab to remove items that you have no interest in or do not use on a regular basis. Click [Customize My Menu] at the bottom of the My Menu tab.

The order logic assures an application that writes to another application is processed first. For example - Sales Order Processing, which can post to Inventory Management, Accounts Receivable and General Ledger should be fully processed and closed before Inventory Management, Accounts Receivable or General Ledger . Some applications can send information, in addition to receiving information from another application. For example -Job Cost can post invoices to Accounts Receivable and Accounts Receivable can post invoices to Job Cost. Therefore, both Job Cost and Accounts Receivable should be processed prior to closing either application. General Ledger is the only module that can be re-opened for a prior month or a prior year. No other module other than General Ledger should be left open for more than two months. If you are running modules not on this list, for example e-Business Manager, one or more Sage MAS 90 ERP Extended Solutions, or a third-party product, there may be special considerations involved in year-end closing. For more help, call CPA Technology to speak to one of our Certified Sage MAS 90/200 consultants.

* Sage MAS 90/200 is becoming Sage 100 ERP (Fall 2012)

Desktop configurations are specific to each computer. They are attached to the user name and are consistent throughout all companies accessed from the computer where they are set up. You can create shortcuts on your program desktop from items on the System Menu. Click the link in the lower left corner of the desktop area to change to the edit mode, then drag items from the System Menu to the desktop area and place it where ever you want. You can create shortcuts on your desktop to a specific report from any report printing menu. Highlight the report under the Report Criteria tab and click [Create Shortcut] on the toolbar.
