What's New in Beyond Software 6.2

5/11/2018

With Beyond Software's 6.2 release right around the corner, we wanted to put together a list to highlight some of the new enhancements and feature additions that customers are most excited about.

Project enhancements & feature additions

Increased size of Description field to 250 characters

The Description field has been increased to a maximum of 250 characters in Project Invoices. Both the header and detail description fields are increased.

Added the ability to track when a time entry is initially created

Fields have been added to the timesheet records to capture the date, the user, and the screen/app associated with the initial entry of the timesheet. This serves as an audit trail when the History button is clicked on a timesheet in the windows client screens.

Added the ability to track who initially enters an expense report, and when it was entered

The process of auditing expense reports improves by maintaining the initial entry through its approval. The date and time is tracked along with the employee that entered the original expense report.

Added support for 9/80 time entry

A 9/80 work week structure is now supported.

980 work week

This allows resources to track their time based on the actual day the time was worked.

Project Manager field & sorting options

The Project Manager field has been added to the Project Time object in dashboards, allowing widgets to be sorted or filtered by Project Manager. Additionally, mobile time and mobile expense approvals can now be sorted by Project Manager.

Exclude all pending time filter

Mobile time approvals now has a standard filter for excluding all pending time. This allows the approver to choose if and when they want to include pending-status timesheets in the list.

Financials enhancements & feature additions

Increased size of Description field to 250 characters

The Description field has been increased to a maximum of 250 characters in Customer Invoice and Adjustment, as well as Journal Entry. Both the header and detail description fields are increased.
