Sage 100 Weekly News Curated by Wayne Schulz - 09/17/2020
Welcome to this week's Sage 100 email newsletter.

It's been a long wait, but expect Sage 100 v2020 Product Update 1 tomorrow 9/18/20.

While we've been installing version 2020 for some months now many other partners wait for the first product update to feel comfortable recommending a new release.

Bye-Bye Regularly Scheduled Sage 100 Product Updates?

The first product update for Sage 100 2020 is due tomorrow.  This will include an assortment of fixes as well as new features.  Since it'll be delivered after the release of today's newsletter I'll add a link to the User Group once these documents become public.

While reading through the supported versions KB article, I noticed that product updates are apparently no longer a regularly scheduled event.

At one point Sage would deliver scheduled quarterly product updates. These now seem to be scheduled on an as-required basis.

Via the article: 
Sage reserves the right to determine if and when Product Updates and Hot Fixes will be issued.



  • TODAY ( 9/17 ) 1pm - ScanForce + Sage Intacct
  • Anytime - Various Sage endorsed ISV Webinars ( Mostly Recorded )
  • Anytime - Sage Basecamp  - the brainchild of several prominent Sage ISVs - is open for visits 24 x 7 and offers free videos and literature
  • September 22 - DataSelf Analytics KPIs and Natural Language for Distribution Companies
  • October 6 - Using Business Insights Explorer to Work More Efficiently
  • December 17 - Making the Most of Visual Process Flows




We just broke 209 registered members on this group, I'm posting the latest updates and technical tips regarding the North American version of Sage 100. Occasionally I'll host a Facebook Live on a topic that I think is of high interest to users.


This group is only for currently active Sage partners, ISVS, and Sage employees. We just broke 85 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!

Expect A Payroll Update in 2.20.3 To Allow Deferred Tax Obligation

Until this is released, Sage suggests

Creating a spreadsheet or some way to keep track of each employee’s deferred social security tax. Then after you have installed Sage 100 Payroll 2.20.3, you will be able to manually enter each employee’s year-to-date Social Security Tax-Deferred amount in Sage 100.

Sage Announces Premium License for Azure Active Directory for Sage 100cloud Subscribers

As an added benefit for Sage 100cloud customers and partners, a Premium license of Azure Active Directory (AAD) is being made available at no additional charge. Sage100cloud subscribers will be notified in stages by email over the next month with instructions on how to activate this license.
  • Activation is optional.
  • If the AAD Premium license is not redeemed now, Sage 100cloud will continue to work as it does today.
  • Customers and partners can return to the notification e-mail to initiate the installation process when needed.
The AAD license helps provide secure access to the Sage 100cloud Web API—customers that don’t currently have a need to enable Web API access or that already have AAD Premium licenses can skip this implementation for now. However, an AAD Premium license is required when using our Web API to communicate with our Microsoft for Office 365 Contacts functionality or Power Platform integration. Additionally, it will be increasingly used for secure mobile and browser-based application development by our partners. ( Source
