  1. Add the Ability to roll all budget entries at one time by level and add a revenue over expenditure net total to the worksheet.

    Ability to roll all entries in a budget level such as requested to the next level, recommended. Then we only have to touch the accounts that have changed instead of having to touch every account.
    Also..PLEASE add a total line to the budget worksheet that will calculate the difference between revenues and expenditures.

  2. Extend the bill message field for more characters

    With the new State requirement regarding posting the tax relief website on the tax bills, it would be helpful if the full website would be printed on one line - with the current set up, the number of characters is not enough

    In the future, this message will be pre-printed on bills. The changes made for this year are temporary and will eventually be unnecessary.

  3. PRINT BILL FROM THE BALANCE/WATER TAB

    ABILITY TO PRINT A BILL FROM THE UTILITY ACCOUNT MAINTENANCE SAME AS THE TAX ACCOUNT MAINTENANCE. AT THE MOMENT WE HAVE TO GO TO THE GENERAL TAB TO DO SO.

  4. Add lot number and lot size to the Custom Permit Report Maintenance Fields

    On Page 2 of the Custom Permit Report, please add Lot Number and Lot Size to the list of Maintenance Fields. I need to do an annual report on new construction that includes total of acres under construction.

  5. Expenditure account status report with drill down

    Add drill down function to expenditure account status report similar to Revenue Account Status report functionality. Further, ONLY include within the drill down transactions that are added to make the total YTD expenditure total for the account. Various transactions that do not effect the final YTD total that is reported in financial reports should NOT be included in the drill down for the expenditure.

  6. Create a User Security System that Is user friendly

    The admin should be able to allow or limit access to any user. Currently you have to use numbers but no one can tell you what they do or what limitations they have.

    You should be able to click each modules and then allow the admin to select what access that user has in each module.

  7. Enha Security Settings for Transaction Approvals - To provide a workflow similar to A/P to other types of transactions

    I believe there should be more workflow settings for approvals to enhance the security and internal controls system-wide. Whether it is a General Ledger Batch, Cash Receipt Batch or Payment Window Batch, [etc.] one user [at a lower security setting] should be responsible for inputting the data and another user for approving the transactions. We use this process now via Adobe files, but it would be nice if different versions of a transaction were documented at that status level by the user who inputted it versus the user that approved it.

  8. Flag payments for Muncipal/Outside Liens in Utility Billing

    There needs to be a way to flag payments on accounts that have municipal and outside liens. I know this works in the Tax Module, why can't it work in the Utility Billing module as well? It should alert the clerk taking the payment asking if they are sure they want to take this payment since it's in Lien. There is nothing that prevents us from accidentally taking a payment for a Municipal Lien which is prohibited since all payments must be made at the Tax office. At the very least the payment batch should have a warning before updating…

    Thank you for your suggestion. You can flag the Utility Account with Municipal Lien or Outside Lien and that flag will be viewed in red in the payment window. Please contact Support if you have any questions.

  9. Option to void multiple A/P checks at one time.

    Be able to void multiple A/P checks at one time. My A/P clerk realized she cut 50+ checks that she did not have to write. She then had to void each one individually.

  10. Change the GLOBAL EDIT functionality to be more user friendly

    Change the GLOBAL EDIT functionality in Deduction Code & Benefit Maintenance. Currently, if the user does a regular edit, the system will not update employees for changes made. Also, if a global edit is attempted after making a regular change, it will not update to employee's because there is no actual change in the field. Rather than having two separate functions, ask the User if they would like their Changes to update existing employees when Saving a normal edit and completely remove the Global Edit button.

  11. Ability to print an account's mailing address directly to an envelope & include the mailing address on Tax Account Detail History printout

    It would be nice to be able to print the mailing information for an account directly to an envelope for returning erroneous checks, mailing out payment history information for income tax purposes etc.
    Why not include the mailing address on the Tax Account Detail History printout so it could be folded and inserted directly into a window envelope?

    Thank you for your request. Batch IDs for postings can be found using the Payment Cash Receipts Report. If you have any questions, please contact Support.

  13. Have a print duplicate bill (owner/bill to) option check box in utility account maintenance.

    Would like to keep all accounts on the same cycle that prints both owner and bill to bills, however I would like a checkbox on the utility account maintenance to check off that will allow me to print both or just the tenant a bill so I don't have to put them on a separate cycle.

  14. Personnel report that includes YTD Earnings

    We need a report that includes typical personnel data that can be obtained in the Employee Listing, but it also needs to include an option for YTD earnings (either Fiscal or Calendar). It would be preferable to be in Excel. Cities in Florida receive annual requests for this information. I've attached a sample request that shows all the information needed.

    To be able to print a custom report with just a specific account field. i.e. to print a report of the only accounts that are "interest exempt" or to print all accounts that are in "bankruptcy". So I do not have to have a report with all accounts
