Bug fixes

  • In Project Controlling, postings were flagged as a conflict if a reversal or reposting was made in a later period, as this caused the reporting period to differ from the original posting. Different reporting periods are now only classified as a conflict if the change to the original posting was made manually.

Bug fixes

  • In certain constellations, an unassigned funding could be saved to a donor. This is now no longer possible.

Bug fixes

  • Conflicts in Project controlling that arise during a subsequent posting can now be resolved.
  • A reversed posting in a subsequent posting was not marked as reversed. This has been rectified.
  • The properties of a reporting currency scheme can now be saved again.
  • If a new currency is added to a reporting currency scheme, it appears correctly in WINPACCS cost control.
  • When migrating project backups from WINPACCS cost control, errors no longer occur if a project has no budget structures.
  • If the list of project fundings is printed out, the total sum is now only displayed with two decimal places.

New features

  • The BU key for 16% and 5% VAT has been integrated for the DATEV interface.

Bug fixes

  • New fundings were no longer automatically assigned to the Company accounting journal or overall budgets, this has been corrected.

New features

  • In the new superordinate Fundings functional area, all the project fundings are now available across all the projects in a user-friendly table with the option of displaying different columns.

  • Under Projects and the desired project, the functional groups Project funding, Budget structures and Budgets have been combined into a new functional group Fundings; a new functional group has also been added here: Donors. The donors of a project are listed in the new Donors functional group.
  • Donor-specific templates for budget structures can be created for the donors. These can then be copied into the projects when a new budget structure is created.
  • In the Postings functional group (only for WINPACCS Accounting 4) individual postings can be printed. This is also the case under Financial administration / Postings (WINPACCS Accounting 4).
  • If inconsistencies arise in the analyses due to changes to postings in Project controlling and the reversal or reposting of such changed postings, this is now flagged as conflicts in Project Controlling. The reversed or reposted postings can then be adjusted.
  • The Comment on asset field can now also be shown as a column in the table.
  • On the overview pages for Bank details and Postings there is now also a button for displaying the selected bank details or posting. The bank details or postings can thus be opened by double-clicking or via the Display button.
  • In the Project controlling analyses, the traffic light system for showing how much budget remains can now be configured on a scale between -100% and +100% (previously 0-100%).

Bug fixes

  • When loading views in Project management, columns containing calculations such as costs or budgets were not completed correctly. This has now been corrected.

  • If an asset has been posted in a confidential journal, a user without authorisation for using confidential data can still read and edit the asset, but can no longer open the confidential posting from within the asset.
  • When transferring data from Company accounting, an undefined error message occurred during the preview if the file contained errors. This is now correctly displayed with a clearer message.
  • Uploading a document to a funding in the In planning status now also works correctly.
  • In budget structures, it was possible to select the multiple selection and Monitoring of quantities characteristics at the same time. This is no longer allowed.

  • Performance has been optimised when retrieving the status of digital vouchers from the suite modules.
  • The editing and thus also the performance of uploaded closings in the Cloud has been improved.

Bug fixes

  • When editing reporting positions (split posting items) in Project controlling, the respective amount in reporting currency changed and was shown correctly when editing the split amounts in voucher or company currency. However, the changed amount in reporting currency was not saved. This has been rectified.
  • When resetting reporting positions in Project controlling, various problems occurred if reporting currency schemes were assigned, or the posting items had been created using subsequent postings in Accounting. This has been corrected and reporting positions can now be reset.

New features

  • In Financial administration, it is now possible to see all the journals of all the projects in a tabular overview. The respective information on the most recent data packets of closings is also visible for each journal.
  • Current information from our WINPACCS website is now available on the login page of WINPACCS Cloud.

  • When publishing a project, all the other projects that are allowed to post to this project are now also automatically published.
  • In the Project planning, it is now easier to enter several elements one after the other. After each new element, you are automatically redirected back to an empty entry page.
  • In the Project planning, the values of the project start and end can now be automatically adopted for indicators for the start and target date fields. In addition, if the values are entered manually, the system checks whether they lie within the project duration.
  • In the Project planning, only persons who are also authorised to record indicator values can be selected in the Responsible and Deputy fields.

  • Archived methods can be reactivated in the Project planning settings.
  • Archived scales can be reactivated in the Project planning settings.
  • For postings from Company accounting, there is now a separate field in Project controlling for the voucher number from Company accounting, which is also filled out accordingly by the interface. The “Internal invoice number” field is no longer used.
  • Up to now, the postings for the validity area of a budget were based on the accounting period in Project controlling. There is now a new option “Base period”. This option allows you to distinguish between voucher date and accounting period. By selecting
    “Accounting period” the previous setting still applies. If you select “Voucher date” the postings are assigned to the validity area using the voucher date as a basis.
  • Unconverted closings can be rejected in the file-based interface if the “Wait for response from Company accounting” setting is used.
  • When uploading closings, additional checks have been added as a precaution. The system checks whether the balances of the sub-accounts in CC and VC are identical at the end of the previous closing and at the beginning of the closing to be uploaded.
  • If a user is assigned the Project financial auditor role or an individual role derived from it, access to confidential data is automatically activated and cannot be deselected manually.

Bug fixes

  • The User administrator is now also mentioned by their first name in the email with the activation link.
  • When forwarding month-end closings from WINPACCS Accounting 4 to DATEV, the accounting period is now forwarded in the “KOST date” field.

  • In the Project planning, the “Add actual value” button is now always available on the detail page of an indicator, not only when the “Measured values” tab is activated.
