What’s new in Zetadocs Delivery and Zetadocs Capture July 2023 update

Improved document queue load times

Greg Cole

This article describes the new features and other improvements in the July 2023 update of the Zetadocs Delivery and Zetadocs Capture Extension for Business Central.

Release date, version and availability 

August 7, 2023 (version 3.0.23209) available for download for on-premises Business Central systems and on Microsoft AppSource for Business Central Online systems from the release date.

Changes in this update 

Feature enhancements

More responsive document queues

Zetadocs Capture Document Queues will now load documents much faster by using a background processing enhancement.

Customers with thousands of documents to process will notice that these documents now appear in a matter of seconds, without blocking access to the document list screen whilst the queue is built.

Should the performance improvement not be marked enough, then there is a further refinement described here, to limit the number of documents initially loaded.

Block receipting setting

Zetadocs Capture’s AP Automation solution has been updated this release to give greater control over invoice receipting.

A new Block Receipting option can be set on a per document queue basis or on a per supplier basis to accommodate vendors like utility and telecoms suppliers, where the AP team would typically receipt these types of invoices directly.

When set, Zetadocs will filter out unreceived order lines on the Order Matching screen. Additionally, Zetadocs will block posting of unreceived invoices when the Post Document setting is also set for the document queue or the supplier.

Quality and performance improvements 

This update includes a number of quality and performance improvements, including the following:

Failed to post purchase receipt on partially invoiced orders

Resolved an AP automation issue, where Zetadocs would fail to post the purchase receipt in some cases and report that the vendor invoice number already exists for this vendor. This error would occur on partially invoiced purchase orders when the Zetadocs Order Matching screen would be used to match to the remaining uninvoiced receipts.

If the purchase order was subsequently updated with the new vendor invoice number, and the matching process repeated, then Zetadocs would automatically receipt and invoice the purchase order. This would cause Zetadocs to bypass the purchase invoice creation stage and create a posted purchase invoice instead. Zetadocs would then report that it failed to find a posted purchase receipt for the order lines it had just receipted, even though the posted purchase receipts had been successfully created for these lines.

Allow zero value quantity lines

Resolved an AP automation issue, where the Preview screen did not allow processing of invoices with blank or zero quantity document lines. Quantity is a required field, however Business Central does allow posting of invoices with blank line quantities after showing a warning. Zetadocs now does the same.
