AP Invoice: Quick allocation to multiple locations - Allocate invoice amounts to multiple locations quicker with the new dropdown menu that allows you to select multiple locations instead of adding locations one by one.

The amount entered will be automatically distributed evenly across the 5 locations. You can then make edits to the amounts for each location manually if necessary.

Documents to Process: Merge documents - Save time by merging separate documents into one document right from the documents to process list view.

Custom Financial Reports: “Number of Full Periods” row - You can now include a “number of full periods” variable in your custom financial reports which will return the number of full periods represented by the column. You can use this variable to get forecasting calculations such as estimated annual profit. For example, you can divide total net profit by the number of full periods to get profit per month. Then multiply that number by 12 to get estimated annual profit.
Custom Financial Reports: Open reports from the package runner - You can now open individual reports directly from the package runner without having to navigate to the package editor. Each report within your package will have an icon next to the report name. Clicking the icon will open the report in a new tab.
“App Access” column - It is now easier to see which employees have access to the R365 mobile app and which do not. The new “App Access” column in the “Employee” grid clearly indicates each employee’s access without having to go into each employee record. For example, if you are a store manager, you can do a quick audit of employees who need access to the mobile app by simply filtering the “App Access” column to show only “No” values. You can then grant access to each employee who needs it. See related support article
Employee Link Column - It is now easier to differentiate users of the R365 system and users that were created from an employee record. In the “Users” grid under “Administration,” there is now an “Employee Link” column that displays “Yes” if a user was created from an employee record and “No” otherwise. For example, if you are an R365 admin and want to see a clean list of users that have access to Restaurant365, you can filter the “Employee Link” column to only show “No” values. This makes your list less cluttered and easier to work with. See related support article
