  1. Payroll Leave report - Make it look like Pro

    Why can't the leave report in Denali look like it did in Pro??? There is too much info on the report now. What used to be a two page report is now a 16 page report. It is very very hard to read now, you have to search for the remaining time.

    • Change default report Screen view to full page

      Whenever a report is sent to "screen" for viewing, the default view is "Page Width" which always requires me to scroll down to see the full report. Change the default view to "Full Page" so the whole first page is shown - I think everyone's monitor is large enough to see the detail - makes it more user friendly.

      • Make information available in an intuitive way

        The web site should have a support area setup for each application. Finding support for the products is difficult. An FAQ section should contain answers to support questions previously resolved by the Help Desk. The search engine fails to locate much information. Also, the file dates for downloads are in a non-standard format.

        • GL posting appearing in order by Transaction instead of account

          Fund accounting, GL posting from AP on paid invoices,would post in numeric order now posts by transaction. This makes it very difficult to calculate the total each fund used on that particular posting, when funds would be required to reimburse a clearing account.

          • Inventory Module

            Allow inventory items to be coded as Non-Inventory. These items would not be counted in any way. This would be an alternative to SA Non-Inventory Codes.

            • GL account inactivate

              We need to inactivate GL Accounts. The field is in the table but i was told by Tech support it is there only for importing from the old Cougar system but it does nothing. We need to make sure users do NOT use the incorrect account but we have not ability to inactivate AND if there was a previous balance we cannot delete. This is just opening us to problems.

              PLEASE allow inactivation to when entering it is not available but allow for printing of course if there was past balance it prints.

              • AR>Customer>Tran History--Zero Dollar Invoices

                The Customer Transaction History does not list invoices that were entered with Zero Dollars. Typically this happens when shipments go out for defective replacements at no cost. When researching a customer, you cannot easily determine if you already issued a replacement nor can you see how often you have issued no cost replacements for this customer.

                • Bank Reconciliation- Void Check for 0 amount inBR, like you could in Pro

                  We should be able to void a check in BR for a ) amount like we could in Pro, instead of now having to enter an amount in BR, post it, and then go back to void a posted entry. I like to run the check register at the end of the year and see all check numbers on the report, including voided ones.

                  • Allow Edit of Employee "Pay Rates" codes to utilize new longer character codes

                    Would like “function” or “Edit” option in Employee Maint Screen to update the employee numeric "Pay Rates" codes to utilize longer code with alpha-characters. Here’s why: since employees can now have DEFAULT hours, when changing/entering hours under different Pay Rate Codes in Denali FUND “Prepare Payroll” you can NOT see the Description to know which one you're entering hours/pay under. You can see the “Pay Rate Code” on Entry screen AND it also prints on Paycheck stubs . We were told can change it now in the SQL Management Studio though SQL table, but it doesn’t change on any historical…

                    • Allow reprints of posted payroll reports

                      Once payroll is posted, it would be nice to be able to reprint a report from that payroll, such as the edit report, deductions report, check register or EFTPS preposting report. If a report was missed/skipped and payroll is posted, there is no way to retrieve that information without a lot of research. There is a deductions/benefits report, but you cannot select a particular payroll, only as low as one month at a time.

                        Thanks for the idea!

                        We will be reviewing this for expanded capabilities in the future.

                        Currently, you should be able to obtain this information from an Employee History Report, based on a particular date or date range.

                        Denali also contains the Benefit/Deduction Report, and Reprint Pay Stubs Report to retrieve prior information.

                      • Employee PayRates - Should be a Table so you can create once

                        Payrate Codes should be a table so the codes and Descriptions are created once and then you can select from list when entering Payrate Code. Current method is open to data entry error and a lot of extra data entry having to retype the description again and again. And you want to make sure we are consistent with the code names

                          • Why can't changes be made in Employees while a payroll batch is entered but not processes.

                            Payroll -Please allow an Employee's file to be edited at any time. If a mistake is found after entering all employees' hours, and it is not something that can be edited in the payroll entry window, then the system will NOT let you edit the employee while they are in an active batch. It makes you clear the whole batch and fix your person, then re-enter the payroll. This takes up a lot of extra time. Employee changes were easy in the CM Pro version and they could be done at any time.

                              Make the AR Aged Analysis Report capable of matching the Financials for a specified date. The AR Aged Analysis report does not allow generation of a report as of a given date. For example, at the end of a year, it can take a few months to get everything cleaned up in AR before you are ready to close the books. So, when you are finally ready to print the year end reports, you cannot print an AR Aging report that proves that the Aging and the GL match. When the bank want to see your Aging as of the…

                                Thanks for the idea!

                                We have had several requests for this functionality, and are reviewing when it will be possible to add this feature. This will require significant changes in the programming code, so it could take a substantial amount of time to implement.

                                We will let you know when this becomes available.

                              • Allow duplicate Invoice numbers if NOT the same vendor record.

                                99% of our payouts do not have invoice numbers so up until we upgraded yesterday, we entered the date and as long as there were not multiple checks to one vendor, it worked just fine. It also allowed us to make sure that a bill wasn't paid twice because it needed a unique invoice number within the vendor record.

                                With the new upgrade 6.3 you must have a unique invoice number for EVERY SINGLE VOUCHER we write. Prior to this it was only within a vendor that the invoices numbers needed to be unique.

                                We are now having to put…

                                • Allow varied fiscal calendars, and allow the 13th period to be more than a day.

                                  Some companies might have a 4 week period and the 13th period would need to be more than a day's worth.

                                    • Denali Payroll Editing Hours Worked - advance to next 'zero' hours automatically

                                      When have "yellow" fields for zero-hours employees (because hours vary EVERY payroll), add option to leave the "Edit" window open and automatically advance to the next employee that has 'zero' hours. This would really speed this up for those users with lots of hourly employees. Love the rest of the "new" Payroll features!

                                      • AP Aged Analysis as of Specified Date

                                        Make the AP Aged Analysis Report capable of matching the Financials for a specified date. The AP Aged Analysis report does not allow generation of a report as of a given date. For example, at the end of a year, it can take a few months to get everything cleaned up in AP before you are ready to close the books. Also, companies continue to receive invoices for the previous year into the next year. Transactions for a given date are never completed on that date. So, when you are finally ready to print the year end reports, you cannot…

                                          Thanks for the idea!

                                          We have had several requests for this functionality, and are reviewing when it will be possible to add this feature. This will require significant changes in the programming code, so it could take a substantial amount of time to implement.

                                          We will let you know when this becomes available.

                                        • On Hold invoice number

                                          When you start a hold, their should be a separate number AND batch for holds (just like how quotes works) so that when you create an invoice, the numbering system doesn't skip. Also, so the date is correct when the hold is finally transferred to an invoice status.
