WinMAGI Security Settings

Many users will already be aware of the ability to optionally display different menu items to different groups of users. However, did you also know that as well as being able to control what menus users can see, you can also control what companies the users can log into, what reports they can run, what buttons are visible on the screens and also what individual fields they can see within the screen grids.

Security SettingsFor example, if you don’t want your sales order entry staff to see the costs of the item on the sales order line, then we can easily hide the cost field from the sales order group of users while the costs can be still be left visible to your supervisor staff. Using the various security settings, you can tailor your system so that only those staff that need to see certain sets of data can see it.

All of these updating options are held within the System Security for Standard Menu option. If you would like to learn more about the Security settings, either give us a call or look at the on line WinMAGI Procedural help.

PS. To look at the WinMAGI on line ‘Procedural Help’, right mouse click on the “?” help button in any of the screens. The online ‘Procedural Help’ gives step by step instructions to help you use your system more efficiently and can also be used as a training guide. Note also that the Procedural Help can be printed.

Unit selling prices inclusive of Sales Tax

Have your staff ever been asked by a customer on the other end of the phone what the unit selling price of an item is INCLUDING tax?

When entering either a sales order line or a sales invoice line, the standard WinMAGI processing will automatically default a Unit Selling Price. This Unit Selling Price is obtained following the standard WinMAGI selling price processing and is exclusive of tax.  Using the Selling Prices inclusive of Tax module, we can now calculate a new ‘Unit Selling Price Inc Tax’ field. The inclusive of tax value is calculated to be the Unit Selling Price multiplied by the prevailing sales tax rate applicable to the sales order or sales invoice line. The main feature of this simple module is the ability for the user to directly enter in the unit selling price value inclusive of tax and have the system automatically calculate the tax amount of the entered value and the tax exclusive unit selling price. This makes for quicker and easier entry of sales order lines if you are quoting tax inclusive selling prices.
