New in 1C:Small Business 1.4

1C:Small Business 1.4 allows to limit user access to accounting sections, and synchronizes data with online stores automatically. New work places and reports are added. The initial setup assistants are implemented.

The service mechanism of the application is enhanced and streamlined, the interface is now more user-friendly.

The current user feedback was taken into account during the development of this version.

User access right restrictions by sections

It is possible to limit access to critical application sections via user settings. Those sections are: administration and application settings, cash and banking, and salary calculation. Thus it is possible to create a user who is allowed to perform sales and order supplies without any access to salary or financial data.

Section redesign

The current functionality was split into more sections to allow precise setup of user work places. It is now possible to disable accounting sections that are not used for a specific company. For example, production for service company, or salary calculation for the company, which uses outsource for this. This can be done during the initial setup process, but the set of accounting sections can be changed at any time.

Initial setup assistant added and settings form is changed

To facilitate new users, the initial setup assistant was implemented. This assistant can be used to fill initial accounting parameters, balances, and data.

The assistant includes filling company information and entering initial balances. During the filling of initial balances, the user can set up general application parameters. The initial setup progress is displayed on the desktop (this block can be removed from the desktop once the initial setup is finished).

The application settings form was changed. It now allows to disable unused accounting sections, and contains better settings descriptions and context help.

Data synchronization with online stores

Automatic data synchronization with online stores is now available. This includes exporting item data to online stores. Bidirectional data transfer is available for customer orders. The application can update the order state in the online store after processing the order inside the application.

New work place for operations with orders

The new Sales of Goods work place is added. It allows performing tasks related to execution of customer orders. The orders are displayed with their current statuses, which helps sales manages concentrate on orders that require attention.

This work place provides access to sales-related document journals and catalogs, as well as quick commands for registering new customers and fast order filling. New order journal forms for payment and shipment data are implemented.

A similar work place is implemented for operations with work orders.

Usability improvements

Context help tips are added to settings and document forms.

Customer orders, work orders, purchase orders, and production orders can have simplified status sets (i.e. a number of predefined statuses). This allows easier order management while preserving the option to add more statuses at any time.

The month closing document interface was redesigned. It allows to view month closing documents that contain errors and find the month where the first error occurred. In addition, the edit prohibition date can be set automatically once a month is closed.

Banking documents can be filled automatically from settlement documents, taking into account debts and payment amounts. The interface of forms being filled is redesigned to display important document attributes.

The inventory receipt and expense documents can be automatically filled from advances information.

Context reports are added to general catalogs and documents; they provide quick access to data stored in these catalogs and documents.

Inventory demand calculations can be filtered by replenishment source, This allows to analyze the demands by specific vendors or items.

Automatic cost calculation is performed when items are returned by customers. If the inventory receipt document has a "from customer" transaction type and the sales document is used as a basis, the cost of returned items is calculated automatically in the month closing document.

The command for automatic filling of reserves for all rows of a tabular section is implemented in order, shipment, and receipt documents.

Other changes

The filter by price kind is implemented in price lists. This allows comparing prices for a single item in different price lists.

Error messages are more user-friendly.
