Track Donated Items in R365 with the new Smart Ops feature, Donation Logs!
Similar to Waste Logs, tracking Donations helps Restaurants to document food and product donations so that Purchased Items and Recipes can be more accurately tracked across all Restaurant Locations. The Donations will be debited to a GL Account specified for Donations.
Donations is now available for mobile! Users can create, edit, complete and approve Donation Logs from the R365 Red App!
Users can now quick-create a Unit of Measure from the Unit of Measure fields on the Purchase Item Record. When a UofM does not already exist, Users will have the option to create a new UofM, which will allow Users to create a new UofM without leaving the Purchase Item Record.
Save and Create
The 'Save and Create' option was added to several R365 forms! When selected, the 'Save and Create' option will immediately open a new form upon saving the current entry.
The 'Save and Create' was added to the following forms in R365:
Inventory Count: 'Item Details' Table Views
Users can now create and save Table Views on the Item Details grid when reviewing an Inventory Count.
Add Item to Purchase Orders by Item Number
Users can now add Items to Purchase Orders using the assigned Item Number.
Restricted Access GL Accounts - Hide Transactions
If the activity related to a Restricted Access GL Account should not be visible for all Users, Transactions related to that GL Account can be hidden by checking the 'Restricted Access - Hide Transactions' setting on the associated GL Account Record.
When 'Restricted Access - Hide Transactions' is enabled, all Transactions that contain a one or more line with a restricted GL Account will be hidden from Users without the 'Access Restricted GL Accounts' Permission. Review the full list of pages and records that hide restricted access transactions here.
Payment Runs: Payment Link
The Payment Run form now displays a hyperlinked Payment Number when Payments have been created. Clicking the Payment number will open the AP Payment form. Voided Payments will display a 'Voided' status.
New Match Rule: ACH Payments Based on Date
A new Matching Rule matches bulk bank withdrawals to multiple ACH Payments based on their Payment Date.
The system searches for multiple ACH Payments with the 'ACH' Payment Method or R365 Payments whose R365 Payment Method is 'ACH' that have the same Payment Date.
Effective Start and End Dates for Salary Jobs
Changes to an Employee's Salary Job can now be managed through effective start and end dates. Learn more about Salary Job Effective Dates here.
August 10th, 2023
Start of Business Day
Start of Day configurations determine what time of day that a Location's Business Day starts within R365. By default Business Days in R365 start at 12:00 am. Aligning a Location’s Start of Day time with the POS End of Day time can improve reporting accuracy and reduce Cross-Day Shifts.
Contact your CSM or R365 Support to learn how 'Start of Business Day' can enhance your R365 experience!
R365 now supports Barcode Scanning! When Barcode Scanning is enabled, Users can quickly enter Inventory Counts by scanning Item Barcodes with their mobile device camera.
From the web version of R365, Users can also do the following:
Generate an Inventory Count Using Theo on Hand

Usage per 1000 and Theoretical on Hand QTY have now been added to the Purchase Item Record’s Item Cost Tab.
Shift Differential Rules by Day of the Week
