Subcontract Ledger Features
Vista 2023 R2 delivers on user-requested Subcontract Ledger enhancements, fixes, and other improvements.
Update to Max Retention Calculations on Subcontract Claims
When entering claims in SL Subcontract Claims, the system now correctly calculates 0.00 retention for subcontract items when the WC Maximum Retention is set to 0.00% or 0.00 amount for a subcontract (in SL Subcontract Entry).
Additional changes made in SL Subcontract Claims include the following:
A new Distribute Item Retainage button was added to the Subcontract Details section of the form. The button label differs by country as follows:
Distribute Item Retainage (U.S.)
Distribute Item Retention (AU)
Distribute Item HoldBack (CA)
When you select this button, the system calculates and distributes the retention on the claim based on the work complete retention percentage entered for each subcontract item included on the claim. If item retention exceeds the maximum (which causes a 'Max Retention Limit has been exceeded' message to display), selecting the Distribute Item Retainage button causes the retention to be recalculated and the message to be cleared.
If the WC Maximum Retention is set to 0.00% or 0.00 amount for a subcontract and item retention amounts are greater than 0.00, selecting the Distribute Item Retainage button sets the item retention amounts to 0.00.
Additionally, once you select this button, if you have selected the Show Retention button, the screen automatically refreshes with the calculated amounts. Previously, you would need to select the Refresh button to show the new calculations.Note: If user security prohibits update permission for the SL Subcontract Claim form, the new Distribute Item Retainage button is disabled.
Removed the Calculate and Distribute Claim Retention to Claim Items option from the File menu, as it is no longer needed.
