Include several orders on the same invoice (sales and purchases)

Uniconta can now include several orders in one invoice. Users can now select other orders that they wish to include in an invoice right from the ‘Create invoice’ box. Only orders from the same Customer/Vendor will be selectable. The lines that are included from the selected orders will follow the same invoicing criteria as if the order were invoiced on its own. The posted inventory transactions will list the order number that the invoice line comes from.

Select a batch number from the warehouse

When creating an order line and selecting a batch number, users will now be able to see all warehouse locations where the batch number is available and select any of these warehouses.

Photo on variants

Users have been able to link a photo to an inventory item since version 83. Photos can now also be linked to a variant under ’variant details’. Note that if the main inventory item does not include a photo then Uniconta will not check to see whether the variant also has a photo.

Drag & drop in purchase orders

Drag & drop can now be activated in the purchase orders local menu in the under ’Physical Vouchers’. Users will then be able to drag a physical voucher onto the purchase order which will then automatically be linked to the order and saved in the ‘Physical Voucher’ inbox.

Drag & drop elsewhere

This drag & drop function in purchase orders described above is now also available in the general journals, bank reconciliations as well as in the transactions report, where users can add a physical voucher to a transaction that has already been posted.

New attachment type: WWW

We have created a new type for documents and attachments: WWW. When a WWW is entered in the URL field, the ‘View’ button will open this website in a browser. A lot of vendors have a website which includes pictures and descriptions of products. Users can now simply use attachments to link to these websites.

WWW on inventory item cards

Users can now enter a WWW link on attachments similar to our photo functionality. This allows users to quickly open a WWW link for an inventory item.

VAT number on customers

We now use the following website to check whether European VAT numbers are correct: https://ec.europa.eu/.

Reports showing delivery note lines

We have created two new reports showing all customer and vendor delivery note lines.

Open transactions can be edited via F8

Users can now edit open transactions using the F8 shortcut from the general journals or the bank reconciliation screens just as they can in the customer and vendor open transactions reports.

Send e-mail from CRM

Users can now send e-mails from the CRM-module. E-mail lists could already be created in the module but they can now also be sent. Upon sending e-mails, Uniconta is also able to automatically create a follow up activity.

Voucher approval now has reminders

Uniconta now automatically sends an e-mail to employees who have not approved their vouchers. We only send one e-mail per employee, which will include a list of all vouchers that are not approved as well as a link to approve each voucher. Users need to set up which days of the week they wish reminders to be sent to employees on.

Auto save

If ’Auto save’ is selected on a user profile, Uniconta will now automatically save when the user navigates away from Uniconta.

New hotkey: <shift>+<Enter>

This hotkey is the same as <enter>, <arrow back > and <arrow down >. It jumps from field you are in, to the same field in the line underneath. The <arrow down> key could usually be used for this purpose, however, if the user is currently in a field with a dropdown list, such as “account number” then <arrow down > will move in the drop down list instead. This new hotkey is therefore useful, for example, in the bank reconciliation, where users are entering an account number on several lines. Users can now simply enter the account number, press <shift>+<enter> and Uniconta will jump to the same field in the next line.


Upon printing, Uniconta offers choices for font type and size. Users can now also select ’Row height’ and ’Show Lines’ to show grid lines. These settings are useful for users who wish to leave space to write notes on the print out, for example a stock counting list.

Settlement discounts in general journals

When an invoice is entered in a general journal and payment terms include a settlement discount exclusive of VAT, the settlement discount is now calculated correctly.

Multi-choice for enums in user defined fields

When creating a user defined field, users can now select ‘Multi-choice’. This allows the user to assign several values to the field from the list, just like in the interests and products fields in the CRM module.

Table type for user defined tables

The speed of a SQL search depends on whether a field is included in an index or not. We have now created a new underlying SQL-table for user defined tables which includes a predefined field “Date”, which is included in the index. When creating a user defined table users can select ”Base table type” which includes ”Standard” and ”Transaction”. ”Transaction” is new in the ”MasterRow, Date” index. If you already have a table with data which is ”Standard” and would like to switch to ”Transaction” you will need to export your data, delete all rows, switch the table type and then import it again.
