Version 65.0 of Procountor was published on Saturday, June 18th.
In June’s version release, we released new useful tools for following the use of the new APIX invoicing addresses. In addition, we introduced new features to Procountor’s payroll: first stage of working hour reduction calculation and improvements to average hourly calculation.
We have implemented a new search criterion related to purchase invoice receiving in the receipt search view. With this new search criterion, you can easily search and track which suppliers and invoices use which e-invoice and scanning receiving channels.
The new search criterion can be found in the receipt search view under the Advanced search panel. The new criterion is a Receiving operator dropdown field.
Receiving operator dropdown lists all receiving operators that have been saved in the Procountor environment’s e-invoice and scan contracts. These operators may also include currently inactive operators. Once a receiving operator has been selected in the search criteria, only invoices that have been received to this operator’s addresses are shown in the search results.
We have continued developing the new supplier announcement tool by extending it with a Supplier announcement history. The new view is available in the E-Invoice and Scanning addresses view, behind a button: Supplier announcement history.
On the Supplier announcement history view, you can now see all the previously sent announcements and their sending information (send date, sender, delivery method). In addition, you can browse all recipients of the announcements with their address and delivery method information.
We have now introduced a new feature in Procountor’s payroll: Working hour reduction. The calculations are done automatically from slips according to the Working hour settings. Users can created multiple different settings according to the company’s collective agreements. As a default working hour reduction is off.
First, the working hour reduction feature must be activated for the company in Management > Company info > Usage settings, by selecting a setting: Working time calculations > Use working hour reduction.
After activating the working hour reduction calculation, it is possible to set up settings in Management > Salary info > Working hour reduction settings.
After the settings has been set (according to the collective agreement that is used by the company), the calculation needs to be activated for each employee in Employee register > Working time info > Working hour reduction. First entry to the view opens a pop-up where you can easily select wanted settings for the employee. Starting date is prefilled with current date and there is no need to change it unless the start date is in the future.
Automatic calculations are not done based on the past, however it is possible to put already earned working hour reduction days/hours manually to the Remaining working hour reduction field. Alternatively, you can add cumulative working time to Working hour/days field, after which earned working hour reduction is calculated according to the selected setting and the result is added to the Remaining working hour reduction hours/days field as well.
Paying of working hour reduction will be released in our next release. Furthermore, a working hour reduction report will be added later in the fall together with improvements to the current calculation features.
In the average hourly settings, it is now possible to specify that the salary type is used basic salary instead of the average hourly if the average hourly is lower than the basic salary.
The feature is defined by selecting the “Replace Average hourly when is lower than base salary” in the average hourly setting.
Once the feature is enabled, the salary slip and salary base checks if the average hourly is lower than the Hourly salary on the Salary info tab. If the average hourly is less than the hourly salary, the salary type uses hourly salary, even if the salary type is defined to use the average hourly.
In the average hourly calculation, the results of the calculation show the arrow icon whether the new calculated average hourly is lower or higher than the hourly salary. Even if the new calculated average hourly is lower than the hourly salary, the result of the calculation can still be updated for the employee because the software check again the values on the salary slip and salary base and uses the higher value.
The Working Time info tab also displays information if the current average hourly value is less than the hourly salary.
This version now prevents changes to the salary slips when calculating the average hourly.In the calculation, the salary slip may still be opened for review, but it is not possible to make changes to the salary slip and the processing of the salary slip cannot be continued in connection with the average hourly calculation. From the opened salary slip, it is only possible to return to the list of salary slips or open the salary slip in PDF format.
