NewViews 2.32 service pack 3, which was release on June 18, 2018 included personal income tax rates, brackets and surtax changes for July 1, as proposed by the Ontario Liberal government on March 28.

Did you know that you can add attachments anywhere in a NewViews set of books? Attachments can include images, PDFs, MS Office documents, etc. There are two key reasons for storing attachments in your books: 1) Files that support and supplement your NewViews data will be conveniently accessible and in context; 2) critical business files will be safeguarded whenever you back up your books.

Make sure you are running an up-to-date version of NewViews to take advantage of this important feature.

The video below demonstrates how to add and manage attachments. We’ll also be hosting a live online “Ask a NewViews Expert about Attachments” session on June 26 at 1 pm EST. To register for the online event and have your questions answered live, click here.

Throughout April, we’ll be showcasing NewViews and EFT (electronic funds transfer) to pay suppliers and accept deposits from customers. EFT is a time-saving and convenient option that helps you manage your cash flow and reduces costs associated with producing and processing paper cheques. Best of all, EFT functionality is built right into NewViews – the only additional charges are any fees your bank may impose.  Make sure you are running an up-to-date version of NewViews to take advantage of this great feature.

The video below demonstrates how to pay suppliers using EFT; later this month, we’ll upload a video on how to accept deposits from customers.

We’ll also be posting FAQs for NewViews and EFT, and hosting a live online “Ask the NewViews Expert’ session on April 25 at 1 pm EST. To register for the online event and have your EFT questions answered live, click here.

This service pack fixes the following bugs in the NewViews for Non-Profit Housing edition:

  • If household income for a unit exceeds market rent, negative subsidy amounts were generated. This release fixes the bug and will automatically recalculate any RGI items that have a negative subsidy.This bug was introduced in version 2.32.0 (released February 9, 2018) and will likely only affect changes to RGI information made since February 9.
  • For federally funded housing providers with final adjustments there are two bug fixes.
    • The first bug, introduced in version 2.32.0 (released February 9, 2018), did not include final adjustments (if any) in the total rent calculation.
    • The second bug, introduced in version 2.29.0 (released July 27, 2016), caused final adjustments (if any) to be added after the minimum/market rent calculation was made instead of before.

    If you encountered the first bug you will have to manually trigger a recalculation. Note that editing an RGI item’s information will trigger an automatic recalculation. To trigger a manual recalculation without editing any data, position in the Description column of the affected RGI item and press [Esc] followed by [F5].

    If you encountered the second bug you may choose to recalculate, or not. This is not a common bug and the amount of the error is less than or equal to the amount of the final adjustments.

    You could recalculate now and communicate any change to the member/tenant, or you could let the RGI item stand as is and have the correction happen automatically next time a change to the member/tenant RGI information occurs.
