SouthWare has added some built-in tools to help you resolve common conflicts caused by locked records.
To ensure data integrity in SouthWare files, when a data record is being changed by a user it is locked so that only one user at a time may change the same record. When you run a process such as End of Day it updates numerous records. If another user has accessed one of those records in the maintenance or entry program and locked it for changing, the process will be paused on the record it can’t update. The update process cannot continue until the record is unlocked by the other user. In some instances a user leaves their workstation with a record locked. Resolving this can take time if you don’t know who has the record locked.
New tools are now available to help with this issue:
SouthWare Accounts Payable now provides you with the option to pay vendors and employees through ACH Direct Deposits. ACH (Automated Clearing House) is an electronic network for financial transactions to process large volumes of credit and debit transactions in batches, including direct deposit, payroll, and vendor payments.
Below is an example of a setup for processing a vendor payment:

The benefits of ACH include convenience, better security, and reduction in costs for you. Contact your SouthWare Solutions Partner for more information on ACH Direct Deposit processing.
Your SouthWare solution has to be current on CMSS through 6/30/19 to access the new ACH functionality.
NOTE: if grids are turned off, or in a character-based environment, the manager functions as it did before the changes. The one exception is on a Windows workstation, the display feature uses Print Preview as the default.

Previous to this change, when a comma delimited file contained two double quotes within a field, both double quotes would be imported into the field.
Example: A field that contains 3 1/2 “” will now import as 3 1/2 “.
Sometimes the import file could have created a new field if a comma existed within a field. That problem has been addressed as well.
NOTE: Make sure your import format header indicates that the fields are delimited by quotes for this feature to work correctly.
Portals that call out to Google will now use https if SSL is turned on in the NetLink Control record.
NOTE: This will prevent messages concerning unsecured sites from popping up in the browser if using SSL
