General ledger Optimize year-end close This feature accelerates the year-end close run by executing the year-end close processing on microservice, illustrates year-end close results, and manages financial dimensions transfer of balance sheet accounts. Feature management
General ledger Financial Dimension Service This feature improves performance when you use the Data management framework to import a journal that has a large number of lines. It uses a new micro-service that runs in parallel to the data import. It runs only on the main account and financial dimension data in the journal, and it generates the dimension combinations that are specified in the ledger account string field on the journal lines. The processing converts this string into the structured data storage that the Financial dimension framework uses throughout the rest of the product for validation, summary reporting, and inquiries.

Feature enhancements included in this release

The following table lists the feature enhancements that are included in this release. Each of these enhancements provides an incremental improvement to an existing feature. Because they are only enhancements, they aren't listed in the release plan.

Feature area Feature name More information
Subscription billing Quotation report This feature enables a quotation document to be generated from a billing schedule.
Subscription billing Trade agreement integration Billing schedules can now take advantage of more functionality that is available for trade agreements. Billing schedule lines can be updated with new amounts when the trade agreement is posted or at renewal. Trade agreements that become effective in the middle of a billing period can be weighted with the effective price for the number of days in the billing period. Date consideration is added for tier pricing. When automatic renewal is used, the trade agreement's effective price and billing period dates are compared to retrieve the correct pricing.
Subscription billing Renew automatically for Unbilled revenue billing schedule lines Billing schedules where lines are marked for unbilled revenue can now be marked for automatic renewal.
Subscription billing Renew automatically for Milestone billing schedule lines Billing schedules where lines have an item type of Milestone can now be marked for automatic renewal.
General ledger Ledger settlement inquiry A new ledger settlement inquiry lets you view settled, unsettled, or settled and unsettled ledger transactions for a date range and individual main account. The inquiry resembles the trial balance inquiry and requires a date range within a single fiscal year. The inquiry will show the age of unsettled transactions or the settlement ID of settled transactions.
General ledger Account structure activation performance enhancement This feature allows you to update multiple transaction groups faster by running them simultaneously during account structure changes. You can track your activation status by selecting View activation status for detailed results.
General ledger Enhanced performance for source document accounting framework This feature provides performance improvements to batch postings of source documents so they run more efficiently. This feature initially only affects free text invoice batch posting with more source documents to be supported in future releases. When this feature is enabled, batch posting is split into smaller units of work which prevents system degradation and lessens the chance of issues due to database disconnections.
Tax Calculation Wildcard support in the tax group and item tax group configuration to the Tax Calculation service The asterisk (*) wildcard character is now supported by the tax group and item tax group configuration table in Tax Calculation service. Users can enter * to represent all tax codes and SP* to represent tax codes that start with "SP."

  • Vendor group
  • Vendor invoice group
  • Customer group
