  1. Default date to current year when entering mm/dd

    Microsoft applications assume the current year when entering the mm/dd in their programs. It would be nice if Edmunds reports and batches could do the same so that someone doesn't have the enter the full mm/dd/yy every time when the current year is being entered.

    Thank you for your suggestion. A comment was posted responding to your request that may suggest the system has this current functionality, Sincerely, Edmunds Support

  2. When NJ Tax Sale File is created, do not force out permitting users

    Everytime the tax sale file is generated or updated, users in all billing modules must log out. In larger towns this causes quite a problem with scheduling when these files can be updated. If a client has permitting/code enforcement, but they do not bill anything from these modules, users in these modules should not be forced out when tax sale files are generated.

    This idea comes from Toms River

    This is done to enforce data integrity.

  3. Allow a comments field on a check batch.

    sometimes you would like to send a message to ALL your vendors - would be nice to have a field to do that in. ie) change of address.

  4. PO Status Report - Add a new PO Type option

    When printing a P.O. Status Report add a new P.O. Type Option that would result in all P.O.'s that are not a blanket or P card or contract. In other words "Blank" or "Regular". This would allow a review to identify old "regular" P.O.'s that are open and need to be to be completed or revisited. We find alot of P.O.'s in process that either goods have not been received or documentation has not been obtained. This would not include any blanket, p card or contract P.O.'s that are open as these items are ongoing P.O.'s.

  6. Print a payment code on receipts

    It would be nice to have the payment code from transactions print directly onto the receipt so the user can see which codes were used based on the printed receipt.

  7. Allow the transdelq file to exclude a minimum balance.

    Taxpayers complain when they get notices from their banks that pay off small balances. Many towns don't send out delinquent notices until balances are over a certain amount. This file should have the same minimum balance function so that banks are not contacting taxpayers about delinquencies before the tax office.

    repost if this is still a needed feature in the system.

  8. Don't default a Year into Meter Reading, Billing or Balance batches.

    Our fiscal year begins in July so half way through the year the default year in Meter Reading, Billing and Balance batches is for the next calendar year. We would prefer the year not to default and for the user to have to enter the correct year and period for each batch entry.

  9. Ability to run a report filtering the location address, city & state

    The ability to run a report of all businesses located within a particular city. Ie: The corporate office of a business may be located in "New Jersey" but they have a location in "Oak Grove, Kentucky". Currently, you are unable to run a report labeling which businesses are located in "Oak Grove, Kentucky" specifically.

    MCSJ has an excel option for reporting or print to screen option that can be useful for sorting or searching.

  10. Show amount being posted through the Lien Holder Payment Batch

    When a Lien Holder ID is chosen in the Create Lien Holder Payment Batch, there should be a display of the amount to be collected prior to selecting "Next" and creating the batch. This would allow the user to verify the total before the batch is created.

    After the tax sale is held and information is entered, you can print the Tax Sale Listing in Lien Holder order, which will display the totals for each Lien Holder. Those totals will always be the same as what is pulled into the Lien Holder Payment Batch

  11. Ability to link one payment code to multiple seperate charges.

    We like having the ability of viewing charges broken out separately on the utility bill, and on account maintenance, however we do not need to track the cash receipts separately for some of the separate charge codes.

    Example: The town charges for bulk trash pickup (the bags of yard waste), but depending on how many bags of trash, a different separate charge bill code is used. The way they get broken out on the bill the description prints how many bags were picked up, which is good. Revenues for each bill/rate code are recorded to the same revenue account, so…

  13. Add a tab to Vendor Maintenance for Insurance Info, Expiration, etc.- similar to Customer Maintenance

    Many towns track this information to make sure Vendors on municipal property have the correct coverages. It would be useful to be able to track this information for liability purposes and to ensure the town is protected and using eligible vendors.

  18. Have a separate type of revenue transaction in the GL batch effect the Cash Receipts totals

    Currently all "Revenue" transactions entered through the GL Batch only effect YTD Revenue totals. It would be nice if their was a Cash Receipt option in the GL Batch or an identifier on the Cash GL account that tells the system Cash is being affected.

  19. Have checkbox in account maintenance so accounts cannot get an estimated read.

    When properties get demolished we still charge the minimum fee for being able to serve, however because the account is no longer reading it gets picked up in the auto estimate routine, and will pick up usage from prior periods. There should be a way to flag accounts to not estimate, instead of having to create a flat bill code and attach to the account to charge the minimum fee.

  20. Have "Delinquent Balnces" default instead of Net 30 in Calculate AR Penalty Routine.

    Very few clients use the Net 30 option, the Delinquent Balances Penalty Calulcation is more frequently used - I think it should default in the box.
