  How to Tell Who is Using Lanpaks We’ve always had a screen accessible from the Desktop’s Help menu where you can get a list of the Lanpaks in use, and who is using them. However there was a fundamental flaw in this screen, namely that you needed to log on to the Desktop to access it and this required using a Lanpak. So if you were out of Lanpaks, you couldn’t log in and see who was doing what. Now if you run the Desktop, you can cancel the signon dialog and select Help – Current Users… This then will give you a signon dialog where you can signon specifically to see who is on the system without using a Lanpak. To demonstrate I did this on my laptop and the screenshot is below. lanpak   GL Transaction Listing spans multiple fiscal periods When printing the G/L Transactions Listing, you can now print a report that spans multiple fiscal years and periods. This has been a top enhancement request for many years. gl   Visual Process flows So the new Visual Process Flows in 2012 was great but you did not have a lot of flexibility. Now With Sage 300 ERP 2014, you can now add and run Crystal Reports, VBA Macros and arbitrary EXE programs just like you can directly from the bare Desktop.  Making these great tools for new users to speed up training and also to streamline processes.
