The over-arching theme of the latest release of Aqilla is to help users get more done, more quickly. Enhancements include:
Two shortcut keys have been added for commonly used actions.
Timesheets are now able to use rates associated with specific Projects and Time Types. These rates are defined in the Projects function under the Reference tab. Once a project rate has been defined, this will also limit who can access the project in a timesheet. If a project has no rates defined, it is considered open to all users and the persons default rate is used as in previous versions of Aqilla.
A new setting in Company Information can prevent multiple timesheets being created for the same period.
It is now possible to specify that VAT is to be calculated when entering mileage as an expense. This setting is controlled in the Expense Types function under the Reference tab. In order to be able to specify mileage rates as a net of VAT figure, the mileage rates defined in the Person function and the Expense sheet may be specified to 5 decimal places.
For the more advanced Aqilla user, Workflow State Groups (found under the Configuration tab) provide a mechanism for specifying, in detail, who can access different document types at different States of the documents workflow. For example using Timesheets, an administrator user may only be given access to view timesheets for a group of people while the timesheets are at the state of being entered. An approver may be given access to the same group of users but only once the document is released. A copy function is also available to duplicate a Workflow State Group for another similar configuration.
