Changes in this update

Quality and performance improvements

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

Improve display time for user list screen

We have improved the Manage Users system settings page to reduce the time taken to display the list of users.  The improvements reduce the time taken to manage user accounts and will be most noticeable on systems with over five hundred users.

Improve export process startup

We have corrected an issue which caused the export process to fail silently, requiring the finance processor to retry the export.  We are working on a related issue with a similar symptom and expect to correct that in the next update.

Additional upgrade steps

Extension for Business Central

Customers using the extension with a Business Central public cloud system can update this from Microsoft AppSource.  Updates are typically available on AppSource within seven working days of release, and you can check whether it is available for your territory by comparing the AppSource version number with the version number listed above.

Customers using the extension with a Business Central on-premises system can download the extension from the Equisys software updates page.

To upgrade from an older version of the extension please contact your Business Central reseller, or contact Equisys for further assistance if required.

This release is compatible with previous versions of the Extension for Business Central.

Connector for NAV

Customers using the Connector for NAV with a Business Central or NAV on-premises system can download the connector from the Equisys software updates page.

To upgrade from an older version of the connector, follow the instructions in this technote.  Please contact Equisys for further assistance if required.

This release is compatible with previous versions of the connector (versions 3.3.18178 and later).

Reporting Template

There is no update to the PowerBI reporting template with this release.

Mobile apps

Installed mobile apps will be updated automatically on mobile devices where this is enabled.

Known issues with released features

Export failure

There is an intermittent issue where the export process fails to start, requiring the finance processor to retry the export.  In some cases, the report is left in a processing state and must be reset by Equisys before the operation can be retried.

Status screen

On larger systems the status screen can take a long time to display, and at busy times the request may timeout and fail.  The display time depends on the number of reports and expenses in the system, so the screen will typically take longer to display on larger systems.

The display time can be reduced by displaying the Settings page in the Zetadocs Expenses client app, then reducing the Status Screen Report Viewing Window setting to 30 days.
