Bulk export up to 100 packages at a time

Attaching mail when transmitting a package

If you've ever wanted to attach mail to a package transmittal, you'll be pleased to know that this is now possible using the Attach Package Mail feature. This attaches the mail, which recipients can access from the transmittal's Mail Attachments section, in read-only mode.

Finding out where a payment item source originated

If you need to know where a payment item source came from, you can see this in the new Source column on Payment Applications/Payment Applications Items tab. This shows either a link to the Original Contract or Contract Change.

Fixes and improvements
  • The Description field on Contract Change (Variation) PDFs no longer cuts text off on the right side.
  • Cost Report exports that were not displaying the project's name now do so.
  • Sorting the sequence column of the Payment Application report now properly sorts by the correct number order. I.e.: 1, 2, 3, 4 and not: 1, 12, 13, 2, 3, 4 etc.
  • The OBS (Organizational Breakdown Structure) permission has been added to Org Admins for Cost Workspace Collaborator Licenses. This means new users can be activated within that organization.
  • It is no longer possible to delete Cost Worksheet elements if they are linked to Change Event items. This means they will now show as zero for a client’s budget transfer on the worksheet.
