OPplus 2023 R2, Service Pack 2, Hot fix 1

Release date: February 14, 2024
SaaS (Online) version: 23.2.1
On-premises version: 23.2.1

New or changed functionality

Functional AreaDescriptionID
Payment ExportThe Skip Customer Bank Account Validation field has been added to the OPP Payment Type. You can use this field to skip the validation process for the customer bank account when creating a customer payment proposal in OPplus. This function is particularly useful when creating customer payment proposals of type Check where the customer bank account is unknown.52957
Payment ImportIt is now possible to import CSV files from an Azure blob storage. However, there are some restrictions that need to be kept in mind. The file filter must be unique enough to identify the file if it is located in a folder. In case you want to keep files in separate folders, the storage location must be in the root of the blob storage. The process does not take subfolders into account.53270
Payment ImportNew field Posting Method Ext. App. is added to the extended general journal batch page. If this field is used, the extended application method from this field will have a higher priority than the Posting Method Ext. App. from the same field in the payment import setup.52827

Bug Fixes

Functional AreaDescriptionID
Payment ImportWhen using the alternative application method set to Extended on Entries and applying entries with a payment that includes a payment discount, in some cases, the open amount would double instead of being cleared. This issue has been resolved.53325

OPplus 2023 R2, Service Pack 2

Release date: February 9, 2024
SaaS (Online) version: 23.2.0
On-premises version: 23.2.0

New or changed functionality

Functional AreaDescriptionID
Payment ExportIf you want to create files for SEPA and SEPA direct debit, you can now use the category purpose code . To enable this functionality, you need to create a payment transaction scheme. To position the category purpose code, use the following: "CtgyPurp: Positioning of CtgyPurp". To use structured address formatting, set "Structured Addresses" to "Yes".52890
Payment ExportWhen generating payment proposals for vendors, the Remit-to Code in the vendor ledger entries will now be taken into account. If the Remit-to Code field is populated, the address on the payment proposal will be replaced with the address from the Remit-to Code. This means that payment proposals will be split based on the Remit-to Code to properly handle different addresses.52512
Payment ImportThere were performance issues when creating accounting rules in the extended cash receipt journals. To reduce calculation time, the fields Last Date Used and Quantity Used were moved to a separate page called Acc. Rules incl. Usage Information.52678

Bug fixes

Functional AreaDescriptionID
Ext. Fixed AssetsThe Report Capital Additions now includes the acquisition costs of a fixed asset that has been reclassified as a real fixed asset. However, it is important to note that the original fixed asset from which the real fixed asset was derived must be filled in the new field labeled Originate Fixed Asset.52546
OtherWhen creating reminders, a wrong entry check was implemented on vendor ledger entries. If there is no amount due, no vendor entry will be created. We have added a date filter to enhance this check. Additionally, we have fixed the issue of canceling issued reminders.52932
OtherWhen using the AWV Entry List, the Sum Payment of Amount field was not updating correctly when changing something. This issue has been resolved.52098
Payment ExportIn some cases, while creating an ISO or SEPA payment file, Business Central Country/Region Code was used instead of the ISO Code for the country. For example, DEU was used instead of DE for Germany. This issue has been resolved.52166
Payment ExportWhen creating the QR reference, remove all alpha characters from the document number before concatenating the reference string.51935
51943
Payment ExportThe transaction codes in the BACS files for the contra record have been corrected. For debit records, code 17 was mistakenly used instead of 99. The correction involves using code 17 for debit records and code 99 for credit records at the contra record level. Additionally, the calculation of the processing date and expiration date was not precise enough. The date calculation has been corrected based on the Posting Date of the Payment Proposal. Creation date (always the first bank working day after the Posting Date), Processing date (Creation date + 1 day), and Expiration date (Processing date + 1 day) have been recalculated, provided they are bank working dates.53264
Payment ImportThere was a bug in the calculation of Balance (LCY) field in some scenarios when using the report Pmt. Import to Gen. Jnl. Line. This bug has been fixed. There was a bug in the calculation of the Balance (LCY) field in some scenarios when using the report Pmt. Import to Gen. Jnl. Line. This bug has been fixed.49666

Payment ImportAn error occurred while trying to insert a document number into the Applies-to Doc. No. field in the extended cash receipt journal. This error only occurred when the fields Posting Date, Document Type, Document No., and Account Type were filled. However, no such error was encountered while using the general journals in Business Central. As a result, the behavior of the extended cash receipt journal was aligned with that of the general journals.51945
Payment ImportThere was an issue with the VAT Key Code field in the CSV port which caused incorrect updating of corresponding fields in the general journal. This issue has been resolved.51513
Payment ImportWhen using the Easy Match feature in OPplus, you can apply entries either from the header or from the lines. However, an inconsistency was identified where the header invoked the OPplus Extended Application while the line action opened the standard application. This issue has been resolved.52476
