  1. GL Trial Balance with Advanced Filter and Advanced Report Groups

    It would be helpful to have Advance Filter and Advanced Report Groups option available for GL Trial Balance.

    Just the Account Filter option is very limited for account selection.

    • GL Journal Entry -- Display Account Description

      GL Journal Entry to Display Account Description
      During reviewing process of the entering the JE, would click on the Account Number, to see if the right account has been select or not. But the Account Description is no where to be found, unless double click on the account to view it. Can the Description to be display somewhere on the input screen. So that during the reviewing process, can quickly to see if the right Account number has been selected or not.
      Thank you.

      • Payroll - Allow user to specify default direct deposit filename

        In Payroll - Allow user to specify default direct deposit filename (with the default file location setting) because bank requires a specific name. Might also be beneficial to also add date/time to it, so not over-written and easily recognized.

          Our Development Team is reviewing this capability for implementation.

          In the meantime, it has been suggested that you use the Direct Deposit File location as a temporary saving location, then rename the file and save it to an archive location with the appropriate file name.

          We realize this may add a step, but it could work as a current solution until further development is done.

        • Expand third party integration

          So far I have not found any commonly used third party products that integrate with Denali. CM's preferred PDF creator doesn't even work if you are using Windows 8. It would be nice to be able to integrate Denali with QuickBooks, Time and Attendance Portals or our online banking site for bill payments. Integration with standard products would cut out a lot of double entry.

            We have partnered with TSheets for Time and attendance integration, and 3D Cart for E-Commerce integration. We have also integrated Automated tax calculation with Avalara Avatax.

            We continue to evaluate our partners based upon the prospects for mutually beneficial relationships.

            QuickBooks is our direct competitor, so we will not be developing any functions to work with their products.

          • AP & BR - GL Account Name/Description Column

            We would like there to be a column in the AP and BR entry screen that sits next to the GL#. It should pull the name/description of the GL # used once it's been typed. That way we can check to see if we used the correct GL number at a glance to quickly catch data entry errors.
            Additionally, we would also like the GL Name/Description to print on the Edit Reports.

            • undo option

              It would be useful to have the ability to undo something that may have been accidentally typed into a highlighted cell.

              For example: I tabbed into a populated cell that had the number "10.81" and I bumped a button which made the cell say ".0" I don't remember what was there to change it back. This is not good when editing payment information. In Excel and many other programs, if I were to press the "Esc" button before exiting the cell, the cell is repopulated to what used to be there, kind of like an "undo" option. Or just the…

              • Alternate Tender Report

                More specifically within the reporting options I need a detailed alternate tender report. I'm not sure why the system would have created the ability to create reports on all other tenders while leaving this one out.

                • REPORTING

                  Because the audit trail reports are so slow in Denali, you should be able to cancel a report while it's communicating with the server if you realize you have put in the wrong parameters for the report.

                  • AR Invoice Digital signature capture

                    For AR Customers that have to sign an invoice, it would be awesome if Denali integrated with digital signature capture devices (such as Topaz devices) so I wouldn't have to keep a pdf library of all signed invoices.

                      This capability will require major programming changes, and we are currently evaluating new features for future development. Electronic Signature capture can be a security issue, so we want to ensure this is developed in the best way possible for our customers.

                      The Genius merchant processing platform has this capability built-in for electronic purchase records, and is completely PCI-compliant. contact your Account Representative for more details.

                    • Have a general ledger report that shows the starting balance for a fund, all activity and ending fund balance.

                      There is no report that will give me the fund balance of a fund as well as show the activity. I have different people managing their funds and they need a complete report, not just activity. Right now I have to go back to the balance sheet and hand write in the fund balance on the audit trail report.

                      • Inventory Purchases Enter Total Due, not Unit Price

                        Not all items have a easy to calculate or constant conversion value. So I can't do Accounts Payable without a calculator handy. Cougar's focus on unit prices of an inventory item looses track of the important part. PAYING MY VENDOR TO THE PENNY. So a 1,000 piece order which cost $6,282.43 can't be entered without an additional line to handle the round off errors.
                        Cougar enters this as a $6,282.00 order as Cougar has a 4 place accuracy for unit prices in inventory.

                        • Accounts Receivable Collection Report

                          I would love to see in the Collection Report the "Customer Open Date" or "Creation Date". This is such a huge piece of information when making collection calls. If you opened them 6 months ago and are 90 days you have problems. If you have had the account for 20 years it's probably a missing invoice or PO number. This is a must in any Collection Report. I feel it was just overlooked.

                          • Make Garnishments & Child Support payments adjustable in Denali Payroll

                            If there are 3 child support orders and they have different %'s (ie 55%, 60%, and 65%) Denali calculates incorrectly based upon the state requirements for calculating. Make Child Support & Garnishments adjustable figures so that they can be changed.

                              When entering an invoice in accounts payable with a zero amount, it presently allows you to save this without a notice. Once the invoice is posted, you are not allowed to use the same invoice number again. The system should notify you that you are about to save and invoice with a zero amount.

                              • CMS Order Entry

                                To eliminate errors in order entry, if there are items that a customer has returned or no longer wants, there should be a way to flag or block these items. In the event the customer does want an item, the system should allow for an override. The main reason for this is, if a customer bought an item and returned it at a later date, the item is now in the customer history. If an employee uses this history to find an item, they have no way of knowing it was returned or the customer doesn’t want that particular brand…

                                    CMS Denali omitted the skip zero balance print parameter for the A/R Collection Report. This needs to be fixed. A goal for Denali is to insure that a user can never say CMS Professional was better because it had a feature that Denali does not have.

                                    • Add a leave pre-posting report showing leave accrued and used within the current payroll

                                      Need a leave report added to the pre-posting reports that would show how much leave was accrued and used by leave code for each employee in the active batch. It would also be nice to show beginning balance, summary of activity, and ending balance if possible, but if not at least the accrued and used.

                                      • Provide more detail as to what Software Updates are fixing and what's new (Release notes).

                                        Here are two great examples of how a software company provides details as to what is included in their software upgrades. They label what is new with the Release and what was Fixed in the release.
                                        http://wiki.spiinc.com/wiki/ReleaseNotes:Orange_Windows/7.0.67 and https://www.fishbowlinventory.com/wiki/Release_Notes

                                        Also, If the posted upgrade was added too, you should list the date. For example. Denail 6.2 was released 3/31/16 but since then it has been updated to release to 6.2.0.180. That date of the new release should also be listed on the website and WHAT was added/fixed.
