Employee Web Apps

Enhancements

A number of new features became available with this service pack.

Tasks (Employee)

Prompting for an attachment on task completion and saving the attachment to the task has been implemented.

Expenses & Claims

Employee Report

Claim Date has been added to the standard Expense Claim Print View.

 Approver Report

Once an expense claim has been submitted, an Approver View and Report becomes selectable in addition to the previously provided Employee View. The Approver View is provided for use when paper-based Approvals are required, and includes additional information relevant to the approver(s).

Purchase Location is hidden when ‘Hide All Tax Fields’ is selected

On expenses, the Purchase Location is no longer required, and is not displayed, when ‘Hide All Tax Fields’ is checked on the EWA Setup card in NAV.

Purchase Requisitions

Vendor Address

It is now possible to choose the vendor address even when order addresses are present for a vendor. Note that once a vendor has been selected, in order to change between vendor address and an order address the vendor should be removed from the purchase requisition and then added again, otherwise the line items may have the incorrect address.

Report enhancements

A number of changes and improvements have been made to the reports. This will make their output correct and consistent across the set of supported browsers.

  • Improved handling of different image sizes.
  • Improved handling of long text strings and/or embedded URLs.
