Sage Intacct
R1 2024

Percipient Sage Intacct Lead Consultant, Grace Freeman, shares her highlights of what you can expect from Sage Intacct’s first software update for 2024 (R1 2024).

What’s new in the latest release?

Sage Intacct empowers users to help themselves

If you’re ever locked out of Sage Intacct, the newly streamlined self-service account recovery process helps you get back to business quickly.

The self-service recovery process allows you to:

  • Initiate recovery directly: No need to reach out for support. Navigate to the login page and select ‘Forgot Password?’. Sage Intacct will then walk you through resetting your password.
  • Secure notifications: Account alerts and recovery options are sent to your registered account email address. This email could be your primary email address or your account email address.

Sage Intact Accounts Payable
Simplify the list of contacts available in transaction dropdowns

You can now limit the contacts available in ‘pay to’ and ‘return to’ fields during transaction data entry.

Your options now include the following:

  • Show all contacts – all contacts in your company are available for selection.
  • Restrict to supplier contacts – restricts the list of available contacts to only those associated with supplier records. Select this option when you want to use parent or child supplier contacts that are not associated with the selected supplier record.
  • Restrict to contacts associated with selected supplier – Restricts the list of available contacts to only those associated with the selected supplier. The contact must be associated with the supplier you select before creating a transaction.

How it works

Sage Intact Accounts Payable
Submitters now receive approval notifications

Users who submit AP purchase invoices for approval now receive an email notification when the AP purchase invoice is approved or declined.

For example: Say that you uploaded an AP purchase invoice to AP Automation. The system creates the draft AP purchase invoice for you. You review the draft and submit the AP purchase invoice for approval. Previously, you did not receive any notification if the AP purchase invoice was approved or declined. Now, you can configure your settings to ensure that you do.

How it works

Other updates in Accounts Payable

Restricted users reversing portions of an AP purchase invoice: If you’re a user that’s restricted by location or department, you can no longer reverse an AP purchase invoice that has line items for locations and departments that you’re restricted from accessing.

Delete shared advanced filters: Administrative users can now delete advanced filters that another user created and shared on the Pay AP purchase invoices page. Previously, if a user created and deployed advanced filters but then had their account deactivated for any reason, there was no easy way to remove the shared advanced filters. Now, a user with admin privileges can remove shared filters by deleting them from the Advanced Filters page in Pay AP purchase invoices.

Bank transaction dating – now generally available

Bank transaction dating was launched under an Early Adopter programme in R2 2023 and is now generally available for all users. You can now control the dating of bank transactions based on the time zone of a bank account. This avoids time zone anomalies that can occur with bank transaction dates and transactions generated from creation rules.

How it works

Reconciliation match sequence report

In the last release, Sage Intacct introduced match sequences to bring visibility into your bank and credit card reconciliation matches. Now, you can generate a custom report to see which Sage Intacct transactions matched with which bank transactions.

Sage Intacct Reporting
Streamline your General Ledger revaluation reports

The General Ledger revaluation report now includes an option to show a concise summary of foreign currency transactions. The summary version of the report makes it easier to review the foreign currency accounts you need to revalue.

The summarised report lists foreign currency transactions by account number listed in numerical order, then location and transaction currency.

How it works

Sage Intacct Consolidation
Drill down to source domestic accrual data in the General Ledger report

You can use the new drill-down feature in any General Ledger report you run with a consolidation book as the selected reporting book. Select the detailed view of the report to drill down to transaction details from the transaction amount column.

The new drill-down feature provides the following benefits:

  • Enables drilling down to accrual data from the consolidation book to confirm transaction amounts.
  • Improves traceability and audit by including a new transaction amount column.
  • Can be exported in summary to CSV, PDF, and Excel formats.
  • Applies to companies with subscriptions to Domestic Consolidation or Advanced Ownership Consolidation.

How it works

Sage Intact Reporting & Insights
Version history for financial reports

If an existing financial report is generating unexpected results, it could be because the report’s settings have been changed. If so, the report’s history can help you get it working again. You can see if a previous version of the report still works, and compare it to the current version to see what’s different. Alternatively, you can restore that previous working version.

Each time you save a report in the Financial Report Writer, it is saved as a version in the report’s history. A report’s history keeps up to 100 versions. If a report has more than 100 versions, only the newest 100 versions appear in the report’s history.

How it works
