Sage 50 Accounts v29 – New features driven by the Sage City Ideas Board

2 minute read time.

With the release of Sage 50cloud  Accounts v29 just around the corner, we’ll  take a quick look at what’s new, focusing on the new features that are taken directly from your suggestions on the software Ideas Board here in Sage City.

Key features driven by your suggestions

Quick Search The Quick Search function has been extended into individual record fields. This makes it even easier to find existing records when entering data, for example, you can find a product record using its part number, or a customer record using a contact name. Quick Search has also been added to the Projects module.
Product record Product description increased from 60 to 120 characters to give more flexibility. Similarly, the part number field has been increased from 16 to 60 characters.
Record analysis fields 3 new analysis fields have been added doubling the available fields.
Email fields You can now associate up to 6 email addresses with a customer or supplier record.
Refresh ledgers A simple “Refresh” button has been added to the ledgers so you can be sure you’re viewing up to date information when working with other users. Function key F5 performs the same task.
Batch entry New “Gross” column added to batch entry windows to show total net + VAT value. This is a row by row read only value.
Delivery addresses You can now add an EORI number to Customer and Supplier delivery addresses.
Sales orders You can now dismiss the status message as not to be shown again.
Recurring items A “Calc net” button has been added to recurring items to aid quick net calculations.
Internet Explorer removed The software now honours your default browser.

Our software developers regularly monitor the Ideas Board to guarantee the development of the software is in line with customer requirements, so if you have an idea for a new feature, or an improvement that can be made to an existing feature, please don’t hesitate to post it on the Ideas Board >
