Improvements for Sage 50cloud

A) A single, secure digital identity for Sage services and apps

A single email address and password is all you need to connect your Sage 50 company to the Sage apps and services for customer payments, bank feeds, and more. Turn on multi-factor authentication for enhanced security of your data.

Improved user experience

A) Quick access to your companies

We’ve been listening! You can now see a list of the last 10 companies you’ve worked on in the Select Company window or under Recently

Opened Companies in the File menu. Also, for ease of use, the

Select Company window cannot be hidden.[1]

B) Enhancements for payments

Other Payments journal now remembers your column widths so you don’t need to reset them every time you open the journal

C) Updated default payment controls for customers and vendors

You can now manage the default payment method for individual customers and vendors in their respective records.

D) New messaging during bank reconciliation

If you enter the same date for the start and end date, you are prompted to confirm your date selection.
