What's New in Sage 50cloud US: 2019. 1 Release!

Sage Drive Multi-User Functionality

If you recall, Sage Drive Multi-User allows your and your team to read or write new and existing transactions in Sage Drive company data files. Regardless of a Local Area Network (LAN) or working remotely, users can simultaneously work in and access a shared Sage Drive company.

We are now excited to deliver to you in 2019.1 significant performance improvements to Sage Drive Multi-User, previously launched 2019.0: 

Sage Drive Progress Dialog:

As updates are made and received by other users, a Sage Drive Progress dialog will appear with the status of Download/Upload data progress. The frequency of this message may have been increased when many changes by users in the company were being made. We are happy to report that these messages no longer pop in a rapid sequence and payloads are delivered more efficiently due to the introduction of Payload Compression in 2019.1.   

Account Reconciliation Update:

We’re pleased to inform you that the previous issue with Accounts Reconciliation is now resolved! If for some reason you & your team are still experiencing issues, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Accessing Sage Drive Multi-User:

Remember, for you DIYers (Do-It-Yourselfers) out there we have created a handy "Getting Started with Sage Drive Multi-User" Sage Knowledgebase article and guide that will aid you in setting up Multi-User.

But unfortunately, you will not be able to access the multi-user function unless it is listed on your customer profile with us. So, make sure you contact your Account Manager @ 877.495.9904 to ensure you have Sage Drive Multi-User added to your account; after all this will truly make your business life easier.


Multiple Companies’ Names Display in Windows Taskbar

We are pleased to inform you that with the release of 2019.1, the program now displays the names of companies in the Windows Taskbar when two or more company files are opened, making it easier for users to switch back and forth between multiple companies without having to manually review the title-bar of each company window to locate the company they desire to interact with.
