Changes in this update

Feature enhancements

Support for latest Android release

We have completed validation of the Zetadocs Expenses mobile app with Android 10.

Preview features

The following enhancements are enabled on selected accounts only.  This allows channel partners and other users to understand the feature and to give feedback on its implementation before general release.  Please contact Equisys if you wish to use any of these preview features.

Reduce startup time for desktop app

We have improved startup time for the desktop client app for user accounts which have a large number of expense records.  The desktop client now behaves like the mobile app, saving a copy of the expense data after you close the browser so that on startup it just needs to download any changes since it was last used.  This reduces the startup time significantly, improving usability for finance teams and other heavy users who close their desktop browser between operations.

Quality and performance improvements

This update includes general quality and performance improvements, including the following:

Offline use for single sign on users

Previously after signing in on the mobile app using a Microsoft work or school account, some actions such as creating an expense failed when the device was offline.  This has now been corrected

Opening links from notification emails

We have corrected an issue on Apple iOS mobile devices where opening an approval task from a notification email caused the task to open in the browser.  These links now open in the Zetadocs Expenses mobile app on devices which have the app installed, giving a more unified user experience.

Additional upgrade steps

Extension for Business Central

There is no update to the Extension for Business Central with this release.

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

Connector for NAV

There is no update to the Connector for NAV with this release.

This release is compatible with previous versions of the Connector for NAV (versions 3.3.18178 and later).

Versions of the Connector for NAV before the June 2019 release (versions before 3.3.19148) will not work with Business Central on-premises systems using the April 2019 of Business Central (BC14), or with older Business Central systems with cumulative update 4 (BC13 CU4).

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

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

Map does not display correctly on Apple iOS devices

There is an issue with displaying maps when using the Zetadocs Expenses mobile app on some Apple iOS devices.  This affects how the route is displayed in the mileage expense view and edit screens, causing it to be displayed on a solid grey background instead of overlaying it onto a map. 

Moving or resizing the map corrects the issue, and the map will then be displayed correctly.  The issue does not occur when using the mobile app on Android devices or the desktop browser app.

Unable to attach expense to report

There is an infrequent issue where a draft expense which has been removed from a report may be left with a status of Submitted rather than Draft.  This prevents the expense from being attached to a new report and submitted for approval.

Please contact the Equisys support team if you have an expense which is affected by this issue so that they can reset it.
