This release is an Employee Web Apps service pack that includes functional enhancements and defect corrections for existing features. It includes all fixes and improvements that were previously releases in October as part of service pack 09.02 SP1. Installation of either service pack 09.02 SP1 or this service pack is strongly recommended for all users of release 09.02.00. This service pack is required for customers who take the NAV Entitlements Calculation hotfix (09971).
The focus of this release has been:
- Expense Claims: Added an Approver Print View for use when paper-based Approvals are required
- Purchase Requisitions: Added the ability to choose the vendor address when order addresses are present
- Tasks: Adding attachments on complete has been implemented
- Reports: Improvements to address quirks of different browsers
- Correcting defects reported by customers
Employee Web Apps
A number of new features became available with this service pack.
Prompting for an attachment on task completion and saving the attachment to the task has been implemented.
Expenses & Claims
Claim Date has been added to the standard Expense Claim Print View.
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.
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.
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.
- Correct handling of multi-page reports.
This service pack release includes the following additional enhancements, functional changes, and defect corrections—each listed with reference to the Task ID:
