Sage 300cloud Product Updates

Sage 300cloud version 2021

Product Update 3
2020 Product Update 6

Sage announced a new release of Sage 300cloud version 2021 Product Update 3 and 2020 Product Update 6. These updates provide improvements to ensure Sage customers continue to derive the maximum benefit from their investment in Sage.

What’s new in Sage 300cloud 2021.3?

This product update includes the following new features and improvements in both Sage 300cloud web screens and Sage 300 classic desktop screens:

Improvements to bank feeds. On the Reconcile E-Statements screen:
When automatically reconciling transactions from a bank feed, the system now tries to match transactions in more ways than it did previously. Transactions will now match if certain information in Sage 300 is in the Comment 2field in the e-statement, even if the Comment 2 field includes additional information (for example, if the payment description in Sage 300 is Check 900 and the Comment 2 field in the e-statement is Invoice 2286 Goods – Check 900).

Transactions downloaded using a bank feed have a Bank Cleared Date based on your local time.

Note: In web screens, the “local” time comes from the system where Sage 300 is running, which may be different from the time on your system.

Microsoft 365 integration with Sage 300
The Sage Contact app (for viewing and managing Sage 300 customer information within Microsoft Outlook) is no longer supported.

Sage 300cloud web screens improvements
Improved process for printing reports. When printing a report from a report screen or a home page widget, a preview of the report is no longer displayed in the SAP Crystal Reports® viewer. Instead, the Export Report screen appears in a new browser tab, and provides options for saving the report to a file. To print a physical copy of the report, save to a PDF and then print to your printer from the PDF.
This change does not affect the process for printing customized SAP Crystal Reports® opened from the Reports list.

Microsoft 365 integration with Sage 300
The Sage Contact app (for viewing and managing Sage 300 customer information within Microsoft Outlook) is no longer supported.
