It is important to share the Program Notes below with those responsible for each module listed so they can anticipate important changes in their area.
The payroll files will be converted the first time a company is accessed. As part of that conversion a recalculation of employee balances will be performed. Please plan accordingly.
Some key payroll files changed that will impact custom checks and custom reports. These reports will need to be updated to use the new file names. Instructions for updating forms/reports can be found at www.cyma.com/support/updatecenter/.
A new sub module has been added to Payroll. This new module provides a different method to track Workers Compensation amounts. A new registration code is needed to unlock this functionality. The existing Workers Compensation method will continue to function without a code.
Some payroll reports were changed to use a new database connection method. To ensure this connection method is established go to System Manager – Maintain Company, select the company and make sure the Create SQL Connection box is checked. If possible, this process should be completed from the server/host computer. Reports with the new method are: Employee Balance Report, Quarterly Earnings Report, Payroll Journal, Payroll Journal (Landscape), Tax Summary and Employee Feature Summary Totals (Current). If you receive errors when running these reports contact CYMA, your CYMA reseller or go to www.cyma.com/support/updatecenter/ for troubleshooting information.
Many reports throughout the system have had the selection criteria changed. If these reports were included in the Batch Report process, the selection criteria will need to be refreshed. To refresh the report go to System – Print Batch Reports. Click on Create/Edit Batch Reports. Select each batch, click edit and double click on each report in the left window. Verify the criteria selected is still valid. Click OK.
