You Spoke, Sage Listened
The goal is to gather product enhancement suggestions that customers submit via the Sage City Ideation page. The team then reviews suggestions and requests and then decides which enhancements to build based on need and popularity.
With that in mind, here are just some of the customer-requested updates that were delivered with the newest Sage 50 2019:
Expanded Sales Order Dropdown Menu & Totals in Quotes and Purchases List Views
The Sales Order dropdown menu has been expanded to match the current field width of the Invoice Number field. In addition, dollar totals are now featured in the Quotes and Purchases List views.
.NET Framework 4.7.1 Updates
Sage 50 now leverages .NET Framework 4.7.1, which is already installed on most operating systems through standard Windows updates. If the update does not exist during installation, .NET Framework 4.7.1 will be installed during the installation process. Several advantages of this update include:
- Performance and Reliability improvements
- Security improvements
- Compliance with latest native TLS security protocol standards
User Security Updates
Sage 50 provides several options to help maintain data security and deter unauthorized users from possible fraudulent activities. To provide the control needed with multiple users, Sage 50’s updated existing security settings in the installer were streamlined to minimize the occurrence of User Account Control (UAC) message prompts. A standard user will need Administrator-level credentials to perform some tasks that require Administrator-level permissions to execute.
