Weekly Sage 100cloud News and Tips

07/09/20


Hello and welcome to another Thursday full of news and information about Sage 100.
 

WFH DISTRACTION OF THE WEEK: HOW MANY SQUARES CAN YOU COVER?


Here in Connecticut, I can cover 2-3 of Ineffective Face Mask Bingo while at the supermarket - probably 5-6 while at outdoor restaurants. How about you?


 

TRIVIA WINNER - TWINKIES KEURIG COFFEE  CUPS




Congratulations to Kathryn Scofield who was the winner drawn from 15 correct answers to last week's trivia question.

The answer to the trivia question asking about the significance of '09sam' --  

A user who lost their Sage Administrator password logs into Sage with the account Administrator // password 09sam and they see this screen.



From my notes: 

I am not sure if you've ever had an issue with a lost Admin password in MAS90, but if you have a client who loses their password the procedure is to call Sage, then Sage faxes you authorization to backdoor the password, you log in as Administrator with password 09sam which brings up a screen to read off to their tech who provides a temporary admin password. This gets you in to be able to change the password.

I tried to pick something that wasn't easily Google'd. If you have suggestions for another trivia question email me directly wayne.schulz@schulzsays.com.

Two New Sage 100 Communities from SchulzSays



 

Looking to stay current on a daily basis with Sage 100? - Sage 100 User Group 


We just broke 110 registered members on this group, I'm posting the latest updates and technical tips regarding the North American version of Sage 100.

I'm not the world's most active Facebook user but FB groups are an easy place to join since by default many users already have an account so there's not the "create yet another login/password" that would be associated with a standalone group site.


 

Are You A Partner Wanting To Stay Up-To-Date With Sage? - Partnerland User Group


This group is only for currently active Sage partners, ISVS, and Sage employees. We just broke 50 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! Let me know if I can help.

SAGE 100 NEWS AND INFORMATION
 

 

CAUTION: POSSIBLE AVALARA BUG


I've heard from multiple consultants that there might be an issue with 2019.x release of the Avatax connector. The issue appears to be that certain sales order totals aren't computing properly which sporadically persists for some after a recalc.

If you're upgrading and have Avalara be sure to test this before go-live.

Peter emailed me this update: 

My consultants are working double-time to get this put together and we’ve added quite a few partners in the last week.  The event will be 7.5 hours long – there are a ton of sessions – the general sessions are geared towards non-technical / business users.
