April 2016

Pegasus Opera 3 (2.31.00) Readme

What’s new

Microsoft Office 2016 and Office 365 (Desktop edition)

These are now supported (32-bit only).

To use these versions of Microsoft Office with Pegasus Opera 3 your Pegasus partner must run a utility to remove the existing Amyuni PDF software on each computer (PC or server) running Opera before the new version is installed.

Pegasus Web Xchange (1.17.02)

This new version is available that allows retention of employees data on the Pegasus Web Xchange website after the tax year that they left. This can be set differently for each employee if required.

These changes in Opera 3 support this improvement.

Payroll - Utilities - Set Options form

A new option ‘Web Ee Details (after Yr. End)’ has been added. This sets the default number of periods used on the Leavers form to keep details online after the tax year that they left in.

Payroll - Processing - Leavers form

The new option ‘Web Ee Details’ has been added, with these choices:

0 - Delete at year end

1 - Retain for nn periods (after Y/E)

2 - Retain indefinitely.

Payroll - Utilities - Update form

This command removes the historical leavers (leavers in an earlier tax year) from Payroll Self Service after the chosen time.

Bill of Materials

When returning BOM components to stock, the component work in progress value instead of the standard cost can now be used to return goods to stock.  This assists with reconciling Stock Control to the Nominal Ledger.

Maintenance

Your Pegasus partner has a list of maintenance fixes in this release.
