General release information
Release 1.7.1 has been released on the 13th of June 2023 and contains several bug fixes. Below you can find more information related to the enhancements and bug fixes. We will update your Production account automatically and the Sandbox account can be updated from your (the customer's) end at any given time.
FFA-856 Customer invoices remain visible in bulk approvals after approval
The new Bulk Approvals overview showed to the user customer invoices that were already approved. In this release, the logic has been adjusted so that approved customer invoices are correctly removed from the overview after approval.
FFA-859 GL segmentation chip visible for none supported transaction types in the matrix
In version 1.7.0 a new feature was introduced that allows users to generate an approval routing based on a GL account. To create this routing the user can drag and drop the GL account segmentation chip into the matrix. This new segmentation chip was also visible when transaction types were selected that don’t support the GL account segmentation. In this release, the logic has been improved in such a way that the system guides the end user. This means that the GL account segmentation chip will interactively react to the selected transaction types and warn the user when there is a mismatch.
FFA-866 Next approver role was not cleared after the approval
In version 1.7.0 a new feature was introduced that allows to route approval based on user roles. When a user role approval routing is assigned to a transaction ZoneApprovals made this visible by populating a field named “Next Approver Role”. After a user with this role approved the transaction the application did not clear this field which could lead to incorrect reporting. This release resolves this and the field will be cleared as expected.
FFA-867 Actual approver not set when approval role is active
In version 1.7.0 a new feature was introduced that allows to route approval based on user roles. When a user role approver did approver the transaction the actual approver was not recorded on the approval log. This release improves the logging so that the actual employee that approved is recorded on the approval log resulting in a fully clear audit trail.
FFA-870 Approval/rejection reason not captured with approval by email
Since version 1.7.0 it is possible to provide an approval or rejection reason when using the approval by email functionality. In certain cases, it could happen that the provided reason wasn’t stored as expected on the approval log. This release fixes this issues so that under all circumstances the system correctly captures the approval or rejection reason and stores this on the related approval log.
FFA-875 Group members not updated as expected
ZoneApprovals allows the user to route approval to a predefined group. The system stores on the background the current members of the group so that the system can execute the approval logic. The group is potentially subjected to changes and this should update the members of the group automatically. This update didn’t always update the members as expected resulting in the fact the new members weren’t added as expected. In this release, the logic has been enhanced so that the update of the group members works as expected.
FFA-879 One day delegation no supported
The delegation feature allows redirecting of pending and newly created approval requests to a temporarily assigned employee. On the delegation, it is possible to set a start and end date. When this period was only for one day the system didn’t take the delegation into consideration leading to the fact that delegation didn’t happen. In this release, the logic is extended so that one-day delegation configurations are correctly supported and do reroute approvals requests as expected.
FFA-880 No tax amounts visible in the bulk approvals drill-down transaction data
Version 1.7.0 introduced the new feature Bulk Approvals which allows users to perform bulk approval operations. On the new bulk approval page the user can drill down to the actual transaction level data. When this data was shown the user did not see a column stating the actual tax amount. This release introduces the tax column so that all information is visible in this drill-down data overview.
FFA-881 Only one bulk approval submission can be handled at a time
The bulk approval feature allowed only one processing request at a time. This resulted in a situation that when multiple employees would try to bulk approve only one request was processed and the other employees would get an error notification that the request could not be processed. This release improves the processing so that the application can process up to 15 requests at the same moment.
FFA-882 Not able to redirect when a role base approval is assigned
Version 1.7.0 introduced the option to redirect the current approval routing to another employee or group. When the next approval was set to a user role the system didn’t allow to redirect the approval routing. This release improves the logic so that it is now possible to redirect the current approval routing when the next approver is set to a user role.
FFA-902 ZoneCapture purchase order-related vendor bills are not approved omitted
In ZoneApprovals, it is possible to configure the system in such a way that vendor bills created by ZoneCapture are automatically submitted for approval. When the user would also configure the system that PO-related vendor bills should be auto-approved the system did not take this action
FFA-904 Bulk approvals not showing entries
When a user hasn’t enabled the quantity on hand feature from Netsuite the bulk approval page wasn’t loading any entries. This release removes this dependency so that even without this Netsuite feature enable the bulk approval page loads all the expected transactions and allows the user to bulk approval as expected.
FFA-905 Renamed menu items
In this release all old naming conventions in the menu’s are renamed so they follow the new naming convention “ZoneApprovals”
