This release is scheduled to go live beginning on the evening of November 12, 2021.

Note: The release notes and documentation are subject to change until that date.


Accounts Receivable

Create AR advances without first creating summaries

The new ARADVANCE object allows you to record advances from customers before creating invoices, such as if a customer pays a deposit or retainer. In addition, a company’s Accounts Receivable configuration can be set to post advances to automatically created payment summaries (daily, or monthly, or one per advance) or to existing summaries (which maintains pre-R4 workflows).

AR Advances can have multiple line items so that an advance can be applied to multiple locations, departments, or projects, etc., as needed.

Once an invoice is created, advances can be applied to the invoice with an ARPYMT request.

The new ARADVANCE object should be used to create advances instead of the legacy ARPAYMENT object.

For more information, see the AR Advances documentation:
