Product Release: Olympic Release

We are pleased to announce that version 1207 of Aqilla has been released on Tuesday 10th July. In keeping with our regular stream of updates made practical by our use of a modern Agile development methodology, this latest version includes the following additions:

Excel Add-in

The Miscellaneous Document has been enhanced so that the value columns are now no longer reset after the upload to remove the signs. The displayed Credit/Debit column has also been removed. In line with the other document types, only the new document reference will be returned if the document has been successfully uploaded. This change now makes it easier to re-use the document after uploading.

The treatment of the calculation of currency transactions has been rationalised when handling the various combinations of base value, currency value, and currency rate to provide even greater flexibility in terms of calculating values not supplied.

Monthly Time-sheets

A new document type is now available that allows time-sheets to be entered on a monthly basis. The format and use of the document is very similar to the existing weekly time-sheets with the added ability to page through the timesheet a week at a time.

Users who already have weekly timesheets enabled on their system you will now see an option to create monthly timesheets. If timesheets are not being shown and customers wish to start using timesheets or wish to change which timesheets are displayed, please contact so that we assist in getting it set up accordingly.

Standard Text

A new document type has been created to simplify the process of transferring values from one currency to another. Users may a Source Account, which determines the source currency, Source Amount, the Destination Account and Destination Amount in the currency of the destination account. The user may optionally adjust the Base Amount. One or more lines can be created for transactions being transferred from the same source account. The document also supports transferring from or to an account in base currency.

When the document is posted the transactions are posted through an intermediate currency control account, which must be configured before first using this document. The journal always uses the same base amount for the source and destination accounts thus ensuring that there is no currency exchange differences created.

Currency Transfers

The size of the standard text that may be displayed on sales invoices has been increased from 512 to 1200 characters. Any number of Standard Texts may be edited in the Standard Text function found under the Configuration tab.
