SCHULZ SAYS WEEKLY
SAGE100CLOUD NEWS, TIPS, OBSERVATIONS

WEEK OF 08/06/20


Due to a tropical storm that impacted the entire State of Connecticut and brought down about 50% of the power grid, this email is substantially abbreviated. The state and Eversource power company have been unable or unwilling to provide an estimate on when power will return to Connecticut.

Eversource faces the wrath of Connecticut officials as more than 600,000 remain without electricity cut by Tropical Storm Isaias

Naturally, this means everyone within a 20-mile radius is working from home and also using their cell phone data which has generally brought the cellular network ( my backup data source )  to a near full stop in my area.

Until next week ...

 SAGE 100 COMMUNITIES WORTH JOINING



 

SAGE 100 USERS 


We just broke 140 registered members on this group, I'm posting the latest updates and technical tips regarding the North American version of Sage 100.

I'm exploring the use of this group for live events which would automatically stay within the group so you could watch them at your own leisure. 

Facebook groups are an easy place to join since by default most users already have an account so there's not the "create yet another login/password" that would be associated with a standalone group site. Join Sage 100 User Group on Facebook
 

SAGE PARTNERS


This group is only for currently active Sage partners, ISVS, and Sage employees. We just broke 72 members.  This is more of an industry news sharing group that allows us to share items that wouldn't be of interest to most end-users.



Stay Safe!

HOW TO UPGRADE (REALLY) OLD MAS90 VERSIONS


About once a year I encounter a customer who has a VERY old version of MAS 90. My last upgrade was from 3.60 to Sage 200cloud version 2020. There are a number of interim versions that are required before you can get to the latest Sage release. Here's a list of the steps I took. (Note: You may need to modify this list if you are upgrading a site with modifications ).
 

DID YOU PURCHASE AN ISV VERSION OF MICROSOFT SQL? READ THIS


Sage has emailed partners suggesting that they check their customer sites who may have purchased the Microsoft SQL product from Sage to ensure compliance with Microsoft licensing.

This request only applies to the SQL product itself when licensed through Sage. If you license Microsoft SQL through Microsoft then the regular licensing requirements apply.

What's the concern? I think this relates to licensing restrictions for the ISV VERSION OF MS SQL with respect to (a) hosting it and (b) using it for applications other than Sage 100 Premium.  Read more here.

 

SAGE 100 2020 PU1 DUE SEPTEMBER 17


Sage's first product update for their latest 2020 release should ship on or about September 17, 2020. Expect a product update for 2019 as well as a Payroll update on that day as well.  If you are planning an upgrade that includes multiple enhancements you may want to wait and install this update during your upgrade process. Via Sage City.

The Sage CRM User Conference was held earlier this week. According to a LinkedIn post it attracted 648 registrations which may make it the largest CRM conference ( online or onsite ) in Sage history.
