User Interface Improvements

For the 2021 R2 release, Sage performed a detailed review of default screens and lists aimed at simplifying and "decluttering" the user interface. On some screens, certain fields have been removed from display while in other areas, additional columns have been included. The goal is to make better use of screen space and display key information in a way that’s more logical and organized. Over the next several releases, Sage plans to continue to enhance the user interface.

Other Notable Enhancements

Other notable new features include:

  • New "spinner" indicates the system is working on a task
  • New template selection options available when using 'Send Quote' and 'Send Order' quick mail merge
  • Ability to configure multiple redirect URLs after a user submits a lead capture form
  • Even more options when customizing the look and feel of screens down to individual fronts and screen elements
