Minor enhancements for the people using Next®, September 2022

We are happy to flag every new and enhanced feature in Next® with its own release note. Still, some of the enhancements are relevant to only a select few, and those we collect in this list for documentation.

For this release we have collected the following minor enhancements targeted the admins and end user:

Next® Invoices strict 4-eyes principle extended to project related invoices
When you use the 4-eyes approval principle for your supplier invoices you do so to secure that at least two individuals have processed the invoice before payment. If the second person is out of office or delegates manually to you, you may end up doing both 1st and 2nd approval. Provided of course, you have the required authority to do so. If this is not acceptable, you can enable Strict 4-eyes control. With this release, Strict 4-eyes control is also available for project related invoices. 

Created as a copy of Sales order template for DE 
If you create new documents in Next® based on templates - or simply as a copy of earlier documents - you will appreciate the new information we have added to the info panel. Created as a copy of Sales order template for DE, will allow you to see the origin of your document without having to consult the business log.  And as the blue color suggests - a click will bring up the original. 

Download and share individual attachments from digitally signed emails

When you view a digitally signed email stored in Next®, you can now click on the tab of any of it's attachments and download it separately to your computer. Or even share it it using the multiple sharing options in Next®. Everything is of course logged, and requires that you have the needed permissions. 

Improved handling of E-invoices with the Next® Invoices for NAV DXC edition
You can now set Next® to ignore the value specified for AllowanceCharge in the OIO XML file. The original behavior was to use the value as an Item ID in NAV. If you have conflicting Item ID set the new flag.  

Next® PDF automation now accepts Word documents with macros

The optional feature Next® PDF automation will now also generate PDF and PDF/A versions of Word documents with one or more macros. The macro is not run during the PDF generation, and for that reason we suggest that you verify that you get the result you expect. 

For the techies

Not so much here for the technically interested.
