Sage 300cloud Web Screen Updates
If you’ve been using Sage 300 for a while, you already know that each release continues to enhance the newer Sage 300cloud web screens and Sage 300 2021 is no exception. Here’s a look at what’s new:
Text Size Control – A new Text Size setting gives you better control over the size of text on web screens. As an example, sometimes using smaller text allows you to see more fields and controls without having to scroll down the page.
Specify Bill of Material (BOM) Numbers – For transactions created from scratch in the O/E Shipment Entry or O/E Credit/Debit Note Entry screens (that is, a shipment not created from an order, or a credit/debit note not created from an invoice), you can now specify a Bill of Material (BOM) number in the Kit/BOM field when entering details.
Customize Report Printing – In Sage 300cloud web screens, you can have a maximum of ten screens open at a time. By default, each printed report you have open counts toward this limit of ten screens – but with these new controls, you can now customize web screens so that printed reports do not count toward the limit.
As a refresher, web screens run in parallel with the classic Sage 300 desktop screens, so there’s no need to choose between desktop or web. Everyone in your organization can use the interface that best suits their needs, while working seamlessly with a single shared set of company data. For more information, refer to our Sage 300 Web Screens FAQs.
