Release 3 (R3)

What's important about Release R3?

User Management
  • Users can send a 'Request for Access' to the Admin of the Company File when opening the company file or by signing in to My Company on the Company Information screen.
  • When creating a new company file, the Admin must create or add an Intuit account to the file within 28 days and should no longer receive persistent messaging to do so.
  • Having an Intuit Account attached to the company file makes it easier to connect and maintain product features and services.
Improvements in Online Banking Users can now
  • Assign a customer:job to their expenses in their banking transaction tables.
  • Create rules that automatically assign customer jobs to expenses.
  • Refresh bank data for multiple accounts within a bank with a single click of a button.
  • Create rules for both money in and money out transactions.
  • Save customizations of columns.
Scheduled Statements Users will now be able to send statements to customers who are dynamically added to the group after the group has already been sent statements.
Receipt Management Users can register a custom email id for the company file and send receipts via email. The emailed receipts will be extracted and can be reviewed before adding to the register. Users can also batch edit and delete the transactions as needed.
Inventory Aging Reports

  • These reports provide information such as age, acquisition value, quantity and average days in stock of each inventory/assembly item.

  • Fixed an issue with Receipt Management where create new transactions used to fail if the bank account name included special characters.
  • Fixed an issue where date and amount columns were not getting sorted on the 'Match to Existing transactions' window.
