Sage has recently made some updates and found some bugs in Sage 100. Be on the lookout for the following:
Sage is discontinuing TLS 1.0 and 1.1 in October. TLS is a security feature that provides secure online communication by encrypting data transmitted between a client and a server. In the case of Sage 100, TLS connects your Sage installation with the Sage licensing server. TLS is an essential feature of Sage, and if your Sage installation still relies on TLS 1.0 or 1.1, it will stop working entirely the next time your license is set to expire.
The Sage 100 versions below use TLS 1.2. If your version is BELOW the following, you need to upgrade before October:
- 2018 PU10
- All 2021 and 2022 versions
Until late last year, Sage 100 used iShip to track shipments through the Tracking icon in Invoice History Inquiry. However, the company that ran iShip discontinued the product. Now, depending on the tracking number, the Tracking link will take you to the appropriate shipping site: USPS, UPS, Fed-Ex, or DHL (or to Google’s shipment tracking for any other carriers).
Windows 11 Bug
There is a known bug in Sage 100 that causes issues when attempting to print the Daily Transaction Register (and possibly other registers) from a Windows 11 workstation. If you have turned on the Auto Update feature of the Daily Transaction Register, you will likely want to turn off that feature until this bug can be addressed. For now, the only workaround is running the register from the General Ledger module: you can find it in the Security Options in Role Maintenance (and you will need to do it for every role).
