Expense Management 2023 R2 Service Pack 2

Release date: March 7, 2024
App version: 12.2.0
FOB version: 12.02.00

New or changed functionality

Functional areaDescriptionId
Country and RegionalWith the introduction of Enforced Digital Vouchers in BC23.2, attaching documentation as incoming documents, prior to posting purchase document and journals, will in certain localizations become mandatory.

When using Expense Management in an environment where Enforced Digital Vouchers is configured to check for attached files prior to posting, Expense Management will transfer the underlying digital vouchers to the posted documents.
When posting an Expense, the digital voucher will be enforced and the expense cannot be posted without providing an attachment which becomes the digital voucher. When posting Mileage and Per Diem, a tax report extract will be generated. This serves as a digital voucher for these documents.

How to enable the feature:

  • All versions prior to BC23.2: The feature can be enabled in Expense Management Setup.
  • BC23.2 and newer: The feature will be automatically enabled if “Digital Voucher Setup” and “Digital Voucher Entry Setup” is configured to check for attachments prior to posting.
  • Specifically for Denmark: When using BC23.2 or newer, and the environment is a production environment in Cloud, the Digital Voucher functionality is forcedly enabled from July 1st 2024. Consequentially Expense Management will automatically create Digital Vouchers from that date and onwards.
General ApplicationPosting Date has been added to expenses and mileages. 
General ApplicationIn the Web Approval Portal, when when attempting to modify fields Job No. or Job Task No. on then Expense Allocation line, the following error would have stopped the user
  • "Field JobTaskNoDesc is readonly!"/"Field JobNoDesc is readonly!"

Bug fixes

Functional areaDescriptionId
Credit Card TransactionsWhen importing transactions with the Transaction Template it will no longer be possible to transfer data to the Transaction Import Journal unless a Bank Code is specified. The Bank Code is anyway necessary and will be reinforced later in the process, anyway.51874
Credit Card TransactionsWhen importing transactions via the Transaction Import Journal, and a field value was longer than 250 characters, it would fail with the error below.
  • The length of string is X, but it must be less or equal to 250 characters. Value: ...
ExpensesWhen documents were approved due to Company Policy or Purchase Contracts, the Secure Archive log for approval was not created.50434
ExpensesTo prevent mismatches between the currency of expenses and their associated allocations, changing the Currency Code on an expense is no longer possible once allocations exist. This update ensures financial accuracy by maintaining consistent currency across expense entries and their allocations.51136
ExpensesThere is a new enhancement with the Enable Amount Distribution feature set and the Distribute by tax amount property enabled in the Distribution Code of the Expense Type. The Amount Including Tax field on the expense and its allocations now automatically updates, calculating and reflecting the corresponding tax values. 51932
ExpensesWhen a Distribution Code is applied to an Expense Type, and subsequently, the Expense Type is cleared from the expense, a new dialogue feature has been implemented. This dialog will prompt users to confirm whether they want to remove the automatically allocated lines that were added based on the Distribution Code. This ensures greater control and accuracy in expense allocation processes.52037
ExpensesA negative expense would be created as a Purchase Invoice instead of a Credit Memo when a Preferable Purchase Invoice was set up.52434
ExpensesUsers with Can Edit Approved Documents enabled can now change the VAT Amount value on the Expense Card page when Expense has the status Pending Approval or Released.52514
ExpensesThe following Expense Comment now references the correct duplicate Expense Entry No.:
  • A similar expense was found with the same date and amount. Please double check the expense entry number [Entry No.].
ExpensesPosting a Purchase Credit Memo for the business Vendor number (Vendor No. on the expense) would not trigger the automatic payment that had to be applied to that document.52803
ExpensesWhen using the Vendor No. (business vendor) field on expenses, while having a Payment Type with a Vendor (bank account), the following error would have been raised, if the Continia User did not have a Vendor No. specified. The error has been replaced by a more meaningful one.

We have fixed the following error when posting a Bank Purchase Invoice (a payment type posting on a Vendor). 
  • Document No. must have a value in Purchase Line: Document Type=Quote, Document No.=, Line No.=<LineNo>. It cannot be zero or empty.
ExpensesWhen an expense was marked as non-refundable (personal) and it involved the Vendor No. (business vendor) field, along with a Payment Type linked to a Vendor (bank account), a credit memo was issued to the business vendor.  It was not correct to decide the document type based on the No Refund field on the expense, the document type should have always been Invoice for a positive expense and Cr. Memo for negative expenses.  Furthermore, the creation of a business vendor document is skipped if the expense is non-refundable and the Payment Type posting Method is Post on the Expense User Account.52859
ExpensesWhen navigating to Find Entries from a Purch. Cr. Memo generated by Expense Management, the expense was not shown in the Related Entries.52878
ExpensesWhen a negative allocated Expense with Vendor Invoice No. was posted, multiple Purchase Credit Memos were created for each of the allocation lines instead of adding multiple allocation lines to the existing Purchase Credit Memo.52887
ExpensesThe field Payment Type is now visible on the Posted Expense Card page.52921
ExpensesWhen downloading expense allocations with Billable set to True, the Job Line Type was not marked as Billable. 52938
General ApplicationOn a Payment Type  when Matched to Expense was set to Never Required, the fields related to the matching (variance, etc.) were not cleared of their values, this resulted in an error later in the process.50326
General ApplicationOn matched expenses, when the bank account currency code would have been different from the local currency (and the exchange rate was not available from the bank), currency differences would accumulate in the Intermediate Account because the posting date on the transaction would be different than the one on the expense. Posting Date was added on the expense. The posting date will be inherited from the bank transaction but available for editing for a user with the setting Can edit approved documents.51752
General ApplicationWhen paying a cash expense the expense user was not receiving a push notification on his mobile app about the status change.51823
General ApplicationWhen running the Tax Report the user name was incorrectly shown.51871
General ApplicationSince version 12.1 it was not possible to export users having the same email address in the E-mail and O365 Authentication Email field. The functionality has now been reverted so that the email address can be overwritten both for authentication and email communication.52159
General ApplicationWhen running the Tax Report, the date filters were not respected.52234
General ApplicationWe have added the missing Lessor Integration objects (.fob) for Business Central April 2019 (BCv14) on the release package.52298
General ApplicationWhen changing the Document Date on a cash expense, the following error message was showing.
  • Status must be Open or Pending Expense User in...
General ApplicationThe value of Attendees Inbox table field Name is now being trimmed to 50 characters during Continia Online Synchronization to prevent the error:
  • The length of string is [length], but it must be less than or equal to 50 characters. Value: [Value].
General ApplicationWhen using the Vendor No. (business vendor) field on expenses, while having a Payment Type with a Vendor (bank account), an automatic payment was intended to happen when the invoice was posted. Instead, the error below would occur, while the invoice would have succeeded to post.
  • There is no Vendor Ledger Entry within the filter. Filters: Vendor No.: <VendorNo>, Document Type: ' ', Document No.: <DocumentNo>, Open: Yes
MileagesWhen enabling 60-day-Rule, addresses without geo-coordinates (but with the same address text) would have not been taken into the consideration.53195
Per DiemWhen using the 3-months-rule and Multiple Destination was enabled on Per Diem, the system would prevent posting if the Address Code was not consistently specified. 51933

ExpensesOn an allocated expense, when the Amount LCY decimal places were to be rounded because the total wouldn't fit 100%, in special conditions, this expense could not be posted because of CONSISTENT error:
  • The transaction cannot be completed because it will cause inconsistencies in the G/L Entry table. Check where and how the CONSISTENT function used in the transaction to find the reason for the error.
General ApplicationWhen enabling the digital signing of documents, the functionality was too restrictive with attachment types that could not be signed anyway. For example, .eml attachments would have prevented the posting of that expense. The functionality is changed for checks only on relevant document types. (.png, .jpg, .pdf).52304

This is to ease the payment processing and is especially helpful for the EB Payment Journal. The functionality can be enabled in Expense Management Setup on the Expense Report tab: Post on multiple document numbers.46157
ExpensesExpense Management now supports distribution codes, giving the possibility to automatically allocate expenses based on predefined rules on the expense types. The distribution codes can be added on the expense types and automatic allocations will be triggered when the document is sent for approval.  In the Australian localization, the distribution codes can also allocate based on the GST percentage, once the AMOUNT INCLIDING TAX field is used. The allocation will also happen if the user changes expense types on the documents.50042

Release date: October 2, 2023
App version: 12.0.0
FOB version: 12.00

New or changed functionality

Functional areaDescriptionID

The expense user has the ability to edit the VAT Amount. This VAT Amount is utilized during the posting process and is incorporated into VAT differences when the General Ledger Setup includes this feature.

In the Expense Portal and Mobile App, this functionality is enhanced by the inclusion of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology for reading the VAT Amount. Additionally, whenever feasible, the Expense Portal and Mobile App functions automatically allocate expenses based on various VAT percentages. You must configure the "VAT AMOUNT" field to take advantage of this functionality.

 Within the Expense Management CA app, similar functionality is available, replacing the automatic allocation of expenses based on Tax Areas. As sales tax amounts are now present, there is no longer a need for automatic expense allocation. This eliminates the requirement for specific expense types such as GST/HST and streamlines the process of posting to GL Accounts using General Journal posting. It also eliminates synchronization delays and resolves the limitation associated with "Expense/Capitalize."
ExpensesWhen using the configuration file, new Expense Types, special Field Types with lookup functionality for airports and harbors based on Google Maps, as well as functionality for recording data related to carbon footprint calculations, have been added.
When you set up Expense Management in a new system, the configuration package will include multiple Expense Types that can be used for recording carbon footprints. Additionally, Configured Fields and Field Dependencies have been adapted to make it easy to get started recording carbon footprint-related data.
ExpensesField dependencies are imported and exported with the assisted setup wizard.49110

General ApplicationCapabilities for autofill on the field types is added. Field values can be suggested in the Expense Portal and Expense Mobile App based on the previously used values. The autofill functionality is controlled from the field types available only for Code and Option data types. The functionality is enabled by default but can be disabled for each individual Field Type.48617
General Application

The Secure Archive in Expense Management preserves original digital documents for bookkeeping, safeguarding them from tampering or deletion.

These documents remain traceable within legally defined secure periods. The built-in log function tracks document processes from receipt to bookkeeping. To use the log function independently, you can enable it without Secure Archive's restrictions.
General ApplicationThe document logging functionality is included to enable in Expense Management Setup. Enabling this feature will record the following changes: 
  • Receive: Logs the incoming documents (expenses, mileages, per diems, expense reports, creditcard transactions). The log entries are inserted as soon as records are downloaded from Continia Online or inserted.
  • Adding/removing attachments: Logs when document attachments are added or removed on the expenses and mileage.
  • Discard duplicated transactions at import: Adds a log entry if a transaction is discarded due to having a duplicated ID.
  • Deleted: Adds a log entry when a document is deleted.
  • Split: Adds a log entry when an expense allocation is creating a new expense.
  • Merge: Adds a log entry when one or more expenses are merged into one.
  • Matched/Unmatched: Adds logs when expenses and transactions are matched and unmatched
  • Add/Remove to Expense Report: Adds logs when documents are added or removed to an Expense Report.
  • Approved: Adds a log entry when a document is approved.
  • Posted: Adds a log when documents are posted. Expense Management can post directly on a Ledger Entry, case in which the "Document No." and the "Ledger Entry No." is specified. In other situations, Expense Management can generate purchase invoices and credit memos based on setup.
  • Posted Invoice or Credit Memo updates: When Expense Management generates a purchase invoice or a credit memo, important changes on these documents are logged.
General ApplicationFiles imported in Expense Management will get a Hash (SHA1). When Secure Archive is enabled the Hashing will help to determine if files related to a given historic posting are identical to the time of posting.
The Hash value is calculated when one of the following events occurs:
  • Attachment download by synchronization with Continia Online
  • Attachment added manually in Business Central
  • Attachment modified using Split and Merge.
General ApplicationFiles imported through Expense Management will be undergo conversion into a digitally signed PDF when Secure Archive is enabled. Additionally the original file will be retained. 
The file signature occur under the following circumstances: 
  • When the user uploads the file using the Expense Mobile App, provided that "Enable Document Signing" has been synchronized with Continia Online.
  • When the file is uploaded from within Business Central and "Enable Document Signing" is explicitly enabled. 
General Application By enabling the Secure Archive functionality, you can establish a timeframe during which the posted purchase invoices and posted purchase credit memos are protected from deletion.49229

Purchase ContractsA new field, Enable Purchase Contracts, has been added to the Expense Management Setup, and is used to disable or enable Purchase Contracts functionality.47339
Purchase ContractsWhen a new expense is linked to a purchase contract line that already has an association with a posted or open expense, a validation process is initiated to ensure that these expenses do not fall within the invoicing period specified by the related purchase contract.

The following comments are appended based on the circumstances:

If the purchase contract line is linked to an open expense within the current invoicing period of the purchase contract:
  • An open expense already exists within the current invoicing period of the purchase contract. (entry number <Expense Entry Number>)
If the purchase contract line is linked to a posted expense within the current invoicing period of the purchase contract:
  • A posted expense already exists within the current invoicing period of the purchase contract. (entry number <Expense Entry Number>)
If the purchase contract is associated with multiple such expenses within the current invoicing period:
  • Multiple expenses already exist within the current invoicing period of the purchase contract. (entry numbers: <Expense Entry Numbers>)

Purchase Contracts

In the past, when linking an expense to a purchase contract, no consideration was given to the Contract End Date and Start Date. However, there have been updates:

Now, if the Expense Document Date precedes the Purchase Contract's Start Date, the system will generate the following error message:

This expense is associated with a purchase contract, and therefore, the Document Date must occur after the purchase contract's start date.

Conversely, if the Expense Document Date falls after the Purchase Contract's End Date, the following error will be displayed:

This expense is linked to a purchase contract, and as such, the Document Date must precede the purchase contract's end date.

Moreover, if the Expense Document Date is earlier than the Purchase Contract Line's Start Date, the system will provide the following error:

This expense is associated with a purchase contract line, and consequently, the Document Date must precede the purchase contract line's start date.
