The latest version (20.5.72) is adding new general ledger engine and I’d like some feedback on this.
Please enable new engine on
Summary screen by checking
Enable New Summary Screen
This is harmless option. You can revert anytime back.
When you enable the option, the figures could be different (hopefully not). If they are, please let me know.
If you can, please use new
Summary screen to test it out… here is what’s different (I hope better) in new
- Drilling-down now works properly into every control account. Previously when you’ve tried to drill-down into accounts such
Fixed assets - accumlated depreciation, you’d get general ledger transactions. Now transactions are grouped by their sub-account within every control account.
- If you are using multiple currencies, drilling-down into control accounts will group sub-accounts by their currency first, then by sub-account itself. This means foreign-currency sub-accounts will now show balances and transaction amounts in their foreign currency rather than the base currency. E.g. drilling down into EUR foreign currency bank account will show transactions in EUR, not in base currency like before.
- When viewing list of transactions while drilling-down, there are new columns based on the context. For example, drilling-down into expense accounts will show bank account or supplier name. Drilling-down into income accounts will show inventory item or customer etc. It depends on the account itself what columns will be visible.
