Product overview

Help and User Guide maintained for WAP version 18.638.0.20 and upwards


This WAP System Settings Help and User Guide will take you through the system settings which require configuration when implementing the WAP software.

By clicking on the System Settings cogs at the top of the screen you are taken directly to the System Setup home page as shown below.  Only users with Administrator Permissions will have access to these system settings cogs.  The filter at the top of the screen can be used to search for particular settings.

NB: options available within WAP System Settings will change depending on release version and WAP modules enabled.


1. Analysis Labels

WAP Analysis labels will site within WAP and if linked to a document type, will not post through to Sage 200.  WAP analysis labels provide additional reporting fields and can be set per document type and if applicable, at either a parent or item level.  These analysis labels can be set to show on reports if required.  Text labels will allow the user to enter free text into the box and check box labels will allow the user to tick a check box.  N.B. some document types may only allow either text or check box labels.

The above example will appear on the Justification tab when entering a requisition.

Sicon WAP System Settings Help and User Guide - additional analysis fields

If a requisition has an additional analysis field applied, an icon will appear in the Flags column on the summary grid tables and approval grid pages.

Another use of analysis labels is to for labels against a User profile; these can be used to keep a record of users’ leave date, whether a user is a first aider or an internal team the user belongs to.

Sicon WAP System Settings Help and User Guide - Analysis Labels

These analysis codes will be visible under the Person Details tab on the user profile; only free text fields can be configured against the User.

If a user has an analysis code configured, these will show on the user grid which can then be exported if required.

NB: although 10 analysis codes can be configured against a User profile, only the first two will show on the user grid.


2. Countries & Cities

These are used by the Expenses module if Subsistence grades and rates are to be enabled.

Please refer to the Expenses Help and User Guide for further information.

WAP Help and User Guide Expenses Module


3. Credit Cards

This is where credit cards would be configured used by the Expenses module.

Please refer to the Expenses Help and User Guide for further information.

WAP Help and User Guide Expenses Module


4. Delivery Addresses

Delivery and invoice addresses need to be setup for users raising requisitions within WAP.  Configure default addresses before linking a Sage Company through to a user to ensure the default delivery and invoice address is associated.  Users will not be able to enter a requisition until a delivery and invoice address is selected.

Addresses which are ‘Not Sage Database Related’ will be available to use against all requisitions that are raised in the system, across all Sage Companies.  Addresses can be linked to a particular Sage Company if they should not be available across all Sage Companies.

Enter a new Address:  click to add a new address.

Import addresses from Sage warehouses:  addresses or locations can be imported for each Sage 200 Company.  N.B. free text delivery addresses are an option for users if configured within System Settings – Requisitions.

When adding a new address:

Sage Database:  choose to link the address either to a specific Sage Company or set that the address is not related to a company.

Warehouse:  if the address should only be linked to a particular warehouse, select from the drop down list.  Leave blank if the address is available regardless of the warehouse on the requisition.  N.B. a warehouse can only be picked if linked to a particular Sage Company.

Supplier Account:  if the address should only be linked to a particular supplier, select from the drop down list.  Leave blank if the address is available regardless of the supplier on the requisition.  N.B. a supplier can only be picked if linked to a particular Sage Company.

Name:  enter the name of this address; this would usually be the Company name.  This is a mandatory field.

Description:  enter a description of this address; this will be visible when entering a requisition so ensure the description will allow the user to pick the correct delivery address.  This is a mandatory field.

Postal Name:  enter the Postal Name; this will be configured to appear on the PO to the supplier so ensure the correct Company name is entered.

Contact Name:  if applicable, enter a contact name that should appear on the PO to the supplier.  This can be left blank if not required.

Address:  use the four free text boxes to enter the correct address.  At least one line must be entered per address.

Post Code:  enter the post code; this is a mandatory field.

Telephone No:  if applicable, enter a telephone number.  This can be configured to show on the PO to the supplier but is not a mandatory field.

Fax No:  if applicable, enter a fax number.  This can be configured to show on the PO to the supplier but is not a mandatory field.

Email Address:  if applicable, enter an email address.  This can be configured to show on the PO to the supplier but is not a mandatory field.

Web Address:  if applicable, enter a web address.  This can be configured to show on the PO to the supplier but is not a mandatory field.

Default Delivery Address:  tick if this should be the default delivery address either for the Sage Company selected or across all Companies.  There should be one default invoice address per Company or across all Companies.

Default Invoice Address:  tick if this should be the default invoice address either for the Sage Company selected or across all Companies.  There should be one default invoice address per Company or across all Companies.


5. Document Type Reminders

Reminders can be set to be sent to users linked to a particular document type.

To add a new reminder, choose configuration and click to Add.

Document Type:  select from the drop down list the correct document type; e.g. invoice, expense, timesheet etc.

Priority:  select the priority level that should show on the WAP homepage; either Low, Normal, High or Urgent.  High or Urgent priorities will be shown in red on the user’s homepage.

Interval:  select the correct interval, either weekly or monthly.  Depending on interval selected, either the day of the week or day of the month will then need to be selected.  N.B. if the interval is set as monthly, the day cannot be set as further than the 28th day of the month.

Time of Day:  enter the time of day the email should be sent.

Description:  enter a description; this will be the email subject.

Use Out of Office Alternates:  if configured and a user has their Out of Office switched on in WAP, the document reminder will be sent to their out of office alternate user.

Text:  enter text as required; this will be the email text.

Send Now:  tick to send the notification email straight away.  If not ticked, the email reminder will be sent based on the interval and time configured.

Depending on document type selected, users will receive an email when specified and also see a reminder on their WAP homepage.

Examples of document reminders being set up:

  • Weekly reminder to submit timesheets; one could be configured to be sent on Friday afternoon and also another configured on Monday morning.
  • Weekly or monthly reminder to ensure expense claims are completed and submitted prior to the expense cut off.
  • Weekly or monthly reminder if credit card statements have been imported.
  • Monthly reminders to ensure invoices are approved prior to month end.

6. Email Threads

System email threads dictate how often notifications are emailed to users.  Please ensure that the Sicon WAP Service is restarted following any changes being made to the threads.  By default, there will be three threads created on initial WAP install; Daily, Hourly and URGENT.  The Daily thread is intended as a daily reminder to users containing all notifications while the Hourly thread is intended to show the user any new documents that are either awaiting approval or have been approved.  The Urgent thread is a system thread used when a user marks a document as urgent and cannot be deleted.  To make changes to a thread, click Edit or click to add a new email thread.

NB: ensure there are no threads configured that have no notification options ticked as this can prevent notification emails being sent out.


6.1. Interval Tab

The interval is determined by the ‘Interval’ and the ‘Next Email Send Time’.  In the example below the service will try and send emails 24 hours’ after 08:14, as that time falls within the Email Window Start Time (08:00) and the Email Window End Time (09:00), the email will be sent.  If the service was restarted, the Next Email Send Time could adjust and the interval may not fall within the ‘Send’ window.

If the interval was set at 30 minutes (rather than 24 hours), the service would try and send the email every 30 minutes after the Next Email Send Time.  If that time falls within the Email Window Start and End Time, emails will be sent.  N.B. if the setting for ‘Send Previously Sent Items’ is on (as configured under the Notifications tab), the user could potentially receive the email twice in a window of one hour.  If the service was restarted, the Next Email Send Time could adjust but as the interval is set to 30 minutes, this would mean it would fall into the send window.

If the interval is configured to be either minutes or seconds, the system will keep trying to send the email at that interval but will only send emails when that time overlaps with the Window Start and End time; if ‘Send Previously Sent Items’ is on, users will get emails until the notification is dismissed in WAP.


6.2. Days Tab

Configure the days the emails should be sent on.


6.3. Notifications Tab

Configure what notifications are sent on the thread; different notification options would be chosen on different email threads.


7. Event Log

The Event Log will show messages recorded by the WAP Service or WAP site; these can be useful to Superusers who are investigating if a document has failed to post.  More information can be found in the main Event Viewer.


8. Expense Item Types

If the Expense module has been enabled, this is where the expense types are setup initially.

Please refer to the Expenses Help and User Guide for further information.

WAP Help and User Guide Expenses Module


9. Expense Meetings

If the Expense module has been configured, this is where expense meetings can be created if required.

Please refer to the Expenses Help and User Guide for further information.

WAP Help and User Guide Expenses Module


10. Fuel Rates

If the Expense module has been configured, set up or edit fuel rates as required.

Please refer to the Expenses Help and User Guide for further information.

WAP Help and User Guide Expenses Module


11. Holiday Default Projects

If using both the WAP Holiday and Timesheet modules it is necessary to define a default holiday project within WAP.  Timesheets will be populated with users’ approved holiday requests, bank holidays and mandatory holidays, as configured, and these lines will need to be associated to a Job/Project and Job Header/Project Item.  Either set one default holiday job or project for all users or it is also possible to define specific jobs or projects at an individual user level.

If this default job or project is changed, timesheets will need to be reprocessed; under System Settings – Holidays.


12. IP Lockouts

If a login attempt is tried incorrectly more than five times the IP address will be blocked; the number of failed attempts can be configured within WAP System Settings.  Within this screen any IP addresses with a failed login attempt will be shown with the number of failed attempts.  IP addresses with more than five attempts will be blocked; it is possible here to either clear a single IP address or clear all lockouts.

NB: it is a User Type permission to be able to access this screen.


13. Re-post Requisitions

This function is provided as an advanced recovery option should the Sage 200 system need restoring.  Select the Sage Database and follow the instructions on the screen for the system to recreate any missing purchase orders in Sage 200.

NB: auto generate order return numbers must be switched off in Sage POP before running this function and re-enabled after the process is run.


14. Sage Connections

The Sage Connections screen provides the settings required to link WAP to a Sage company and will list the Sage Companies linked through to WAP.  There is no limit to the number of Sage 200 companies that can be linked.

Is Valid:  this will be ticked if the connection to Sage passes validation; if a Sage Connection is not valid the System cannot be used and the menu options on the left of the screen will be hidden.

Edit:  click to open up and view connection details, update PO layouts, logos and terms and conditions.

Delete:  use to remove a Sage company from WAP; it might be that a test company has been added in temporarily.

Make Base Currency:  if multiple companies have been linked to WAP with multiple currencies, mark one as the base currency.  This will be used to calculate approval values; other currencies will be converted to the base currency.

Suspend Posting:  if required, posting can be suspended temporarily for a particular company which will prevent any approved documents posting through to Sage.


14.1. Connection Details Tab

Once editing a company, the connection details will be visible.  Some information required here can be found in Sage System Administration but it is recommended to speak with your Sage Business Partner and/or IT contact for further assistance.  The Sage Company Description must match in WAP how the Company is named in Sage System Administration.


14.2. Company Details Tab

Information on this tab will be used when sending out approved purchase orders from WAP to suppliers.  Enter Company registration details as applicable; these can be found in Sage under System Settings.  Upload a company logo per company; ensure the format is .gif.  Under the Purchase Order sub tab enter the email subject and body text using the fields underneath.  Choose a purchase order report from the drop down list; it is possible to preview the report before selection.  If required, two different reports can be configured.


14.3. Terms & Conditions Tab

Terms and conditions can be entered which will be attached to a purchase order when emailing to suppliers.  Use the tabs at the bottom of the screen to preview how the text will appear when sent out.


14.4. Signature Page Tab

This page is only applicable if using Sales Order module; use the fields to enter a signature as required.


14.5. Settings Tab

Standard Tax Rate:  configure the standard tax rate; this is used by the Expense module when users enter an expense claim and depending on configuration, also by the Requisition module.

Non Tax Rate:  configure the non-tax rate; this is used by the Expense module when users enter an expense claim and depending on configuration, also by the Requisition module.

Per passenger category component for Project Accounting Expense Claims:  if using Project Accounting, select the component for passenger mileage claims.

Purchase Order Number Prefix:  if required, enter a prefix per company, e.g. SICON.  This will show before the PO number on the PO sent to the supplier but will not post through to Sage.

Next Purchase Order Number (Internal Orders):  used for when raising Internal Orders or if Sage Commercials are not configured; enter the next PO number to be used.

Warehouse to use for direct delivery:  to be used with the Sales Order module.

Default stock item warehouse:  if entering stock lines on a requisition and a default warehouse is to be used, select here from the drop down box.  If the stock item in Sage is linked to this warehouse, when entered on a requisition in WAP this warehouse will default.

WebAPI Enabled:  this will be configured if the install requires use of the WebAPI.


15. Subsistence Grades

If within the Expense module configuration, subsistence has been enabled, this is where subsistence grades are setup.

Please refer to the Expenses Help and User Guide for further information.

WAP Help and User Guide Expenses Module


16. Subsistence Incidentals

If within the Expense module configuration, subsistence has been enabled, this is where subsistence incidentals are configured.

Please refer to the Expenses Help and User Guide for further information.

WAP Help and User Guide Expenses Module


17. Subsistence Rates

If within the Expense module configuration, subsistence has been enabled, this is where the subsistence rates are configured.

Please refer to the Expenses Help and User Guide for further information.

WAP Help and User Guide Expenses Module


18. System Messages

Messages can be configured to appear in a yellow pop up to all users when they log into WAP; each message can have a unique text with a date and time to display until.  If the date and time is set within two hours of the present time, the message can prevent users from logging into WAP; this can be useful if needing to stop users logging into WAP while system configuration is taking place.

The message configured within system messages will appear on the users’ homepage following login and can be dismissed by clicking anywhere on the yellow banner.


19. System Settings – Approval Tab

The Approval tab is used to turn on and off various parameters that are used to create approval routes within the system.


19.1. Display Banner

View PDF Attachments Inline:  this must be enabled if using a document management system within the Invoice module; this setting will allow the attached invoice to be viewed during the approval process.

Use Acrobat Viewer for inline PDFs:  if Adobe is installed on client machines it will use this to open the attachment; if not enabled, the WAP viewer will be used.

Hide Budgets tab on approval pages:  this setting will hide the budget tab on all approval pages.


19.2. Functionality Banner

Various parameters can be turned on and off to create the required approval route settings per document within the WAP system.  These settings are configured per WAP install rather than per Company.  Once routes have been created or there are documents awaiting approval these settings cannot be changed without deleting routes.  Combinations of approval options are possible (for example requisitions could be approved by both requesting user and nominal account) but it is recommended to keep the routes as simples as possible to allow for easier administration.

All applicable document types are listed, e.g. Requisitions, Sales Orders, Invoices, Project Requisitions etc. and approval route functionality is set per document type.  Some document types may not have all approval options available; e.g. Holiday Requests can only be approved by requesting user.

Document Requires Approval:  by default this will be on but if documents do not require approval, this can be unticked.

Approve as Single Document:  if this is ticked it would mean that only one nominal account can be set per document; usually more than one nominal code would be needed on a document so this wouldn’t need to be switched on.

Approval Type:  set at either document item value or document value; document value will use the total value of the document for approval while document item value will total the lines with the same nominal code for approval.

Nominal Account:  approval to be based on nominal account (combination of account number, cost centre and department); if a new nominal account is added in Sage, corresponding approval routes would need to be created in WAP.

Supplier:  approval to be based on Purchase Ledger supplier account; if a new supplier is added in Sage, corresponding approval routes would need to be created in WAP.

Value Band:  value bands would be created to allow for documents to skip approvers; for example, if documents over a certain value should go straight to a Director for approval rather than going through line managers before reaching the Director.  Value bands are usually used in conjunction with another functionality option, e.g. nominal account or requesting user.

Requesting User:  approval to be based on the user who submitted the document; if new users are added in WAP, corresponding approval routes would need to be created.

Job:  approval to be based on the job or project selected; if new jobs or projects are created in Sage, corresponding approval routes in WAP would need to be created.

Job Header:  approval to be based on the job header or project item selected; if new job headers or project items are created in Sage, corresponding approval routes in WAP would need to be created.

Job Manager:  this can only be used in conjunction with Job Costing; approval would be based on the job manager linked to the job selected.  If new job managers are created in Sage, corresponding approval routes in WAP would need to be created.  If jobs are being created in Sage regularly, it can be advisable to have approval in WAP based on job manager as this would mean less maintenance in WAP; approval routes only need configuration if new job managers created rather than every time a new job is entered.

Requisitions:  if no costing module is configured, approval would usually either be based on nominal account or requesting user; if a costing module is configured, approval may be based on job or job manager.

Sales Orders:  usually approval would be based on requesting user.

Invoices:  if invoice approval is used in conjunction with the requisition module, invoice approval routes would usually mirror requisition approval routes.  Requesting user can only be selected if invoices are entered directly into WAP – i.e. when posting to Sage Commercials is disabled.

Project Requisitions:  usually approval would be based on requesting user.  Usually a default approval route would be configured as approval would only be required from one user or a user list (i.e. a Procurement Team).

Expenses:  usually approval would be based on requesting user.

Timesheets:  usually approval would either be based on requesting user or job/project.

Holidays:  these can only be approved based on requesting user.

Construction Application:  usually approval would either be based on supplier or job.

Customers:  these can only be based on requesting user.  Usually a default approval route would be configured as approval would only be required from one user or a user list (i.e. a Finance Team).

Supplier:  these can only be based on requesting user.  Usually a default approval route would be configured as approval would only be required from one user or a user list (i.e. a Purchase Ledger Team).

Stock Item:  these can only be based on requesting user.  Usually a default approval route would be configured as approval would only be required from one user or a user list (i.e. a Stores Team).

Expense Supplier:  these can only be based on requesting user.  Usually a default approval route would be configured as approval would only be required from one user or a user list (i.e. a Purchase Ledger Team).

Proposed Payments:  these can either be approved based on supplier or value.  Usually a default approval route would be configured as approval would only be required from one user or a user list (i.e. a CFO or MD).

If approval route functionality is to be changed, current non default approval routes would need to be deleted before the change is made and new routes created.  To deleted, click the ‘Approval Route Deletion Options’ banner and then select a Sage Database and a document type to delete routes for.  If required, all routes can be deleted but this should only be done at implementation stage as while there are no routes in the system, the menu options on the left hand side will be hidden.

NB: please use this functionality with caution; if approval routes are deleted they cannot be recovered; new routes need to be created.

The below settings can be changed if approval routes exist.

Approval routes for a document are restarted on changes made to a document by any user (not just the requestor):  as a system default, if a requester makes changes to a document, the document will restart the approval route.  If this setting is configured, if anyone other than the requester makes a change, the document will restart the approval route.

All Document Approval Routes are restarted when an approval route is changed:  if changes are made to an approval route, any document waiting approval will restart the approval route.  By default, this is not configured so documents currently awaiting approval will continue their current route.

Prompt for confirmation before approval when using ‘Approve All’ option:  if enabled, users will see an additional popup when using the ‘Approve All’ option.

Prompt for confirmation for individual item lines before completing approval (only when single document approval is disabled):  if enabled, users will see an additional popup when approving a line item.

When single document approval is enabled, compare the actual approval routes for the items rather than the approval options (e.g. the routes are the same instead of the nominal accounts being the same):  configure if single document approval is required but nominal codes may differ.

Approval history display type for report grids:  the options are combined, discrete, all or none; these will affect how approval progress is displayed with approval details.


19.3. Invoice Approval Banner

WAP has been developed with three settings regarding approving invoices that are linked to purchase orders.  Only one of the below settings can be chosen.  If these settings are changed, please restart the WAP service once saved to ensure the service uses new configuration.

Please refer to the Invoice Help and User Guide for further information.

WAP Help and User Guide Invoices Module


19.4. Mandatory Approval - Custom Fields

This feature allows up to three additional mandatory approval labels to be included in approval routes and can have customised labels.  If enabled, the label is displayed when entering a requisition for a user to tick and when creating an approval route, the custom fields will appear as additional mandatory options.

An example of this being used may be for strategic purchases or capex spends; a user may submit a requisition that is a capex spend so would require additional approval.  Either the user submitting the requisition or another user could tick the option on requisition entry screen for the custom mandatory flag to be picked up.


19.5. Self-Approval Banner

Each WAP user can be set up with a self-approval value per document type; this is configured on their user profile.  There are three options available for configuring self-approval when a requester is also in the approval route.  One of these must be selected; by default, the first option is checked.

NB: self-approval will override mandatory approval routes, except if the nominal or job is over budget.

Use the requestors self-approval value instead of the document approval value:  as a general rule, self-approval value is usually less than the user’s document approval value and this will accommodate the scenario where a user can approver other users’ documents at one value but they can only approve documents submitted by themselves at a lower value or at 0.00, forcing the document through the approval routes.

Use the approvers alternate user account where available, or remove the requester from the approval route for that document when there is no alternate user available:  the alternate user is set on the user’s WAP profile; if there is no user configured here, the document will go to the next step of the approval route.

Use the normal approval value that would be used if approving a document requested by another user:  the user’s document approval value or specific nominal approval value will be used rather than their self-approval value.  Use this option if nominal codes have different approval values.


20. System Settings – Budgets Tab

The Budgets tab is used for configuring settings as appropriate to check budgets when submitting or approving documents within WAP.  Budgets are always set in Sage, either against the nominal, the job or project.


20.1. Display Banner

Supress ‘Over Budget’ warnings:  this setting determines whether or not users are shown a warning when they enter a request that exceeds the budget for the nominal or job selected.

Budget Reporting Mode:  by default this is set to Detailed but can be changed to Simple if required.


20.2. Functionality Banner

Budget Calculation Mode:  by default this is set to ‘Standard’ but can be changed to ‘Actual plus approved invoiced lines’ if required.

Check Nominal Monthly Budgets:  tick to check nominal monthly budget, as configured in Sage.

Check Nominal YTD Budgets:  tick to check nominal year to date budget, as configured in Sage.

Check Nominal Group Budgets:  tick to check nominal group budgets, as configured in Sage.

Check Reporting Category Budgets:  tick to check reporting group category budgets, as configured in Sage.

Check Nominal Budgets during submission:  tick to check budgets when a document is submitted.  Some organisations may only require budgets to be checked during approval.

Check Project Budgets during submission:  tick to check budgets when a document is submitted.  Some organisations may only require budgets to be checked during approval.

Check Nominal Budgets during approval:  tick to check budgets when a document is approved.

Check Project Budgets during approval:  tick to check budgets when a document is approved.

Nominals Over Budget if Budget is Zero:  if enabled, nominal codes with no budgets set in Sage will be treated as over budget.

Enable ‘SiExtraBudget’ table:  a custom table that can provide additional years of nominal budget in addition to the standard Sage 200 ‘Next Year’ budget.


21. System Settings – Misc Tab

The Misc tab provides global system settings that affect information displayed to users, WAP licences, email configuration and security requirements.  The majority of these settings will be configured during initial implementation and should not require amendment.


21.1. Display Banner

System Culture:  this allows each system to have headings, tabs and labels amended for specific installs.  At present there is not yet a user facility to manage this but where specific organisation terminology is required, this can be provided at additional cost.

Sort order of supplier lists:  set whether supplier account listings are sorted by account number or account name.  By default, account number is selected.

Sort order of Nominal Account lists:  set whether nominal account listings are sorted by account number, account name, cost centre, department and account number.  By default, account number is selected.

Show Cost Centre and Department Names in Nominal Selection:  tick if users should be able to see cost centre and department names when selecting a nominal code.

Number of Items to show on each grid page:  defaulted to 15 but can be set to a higher value so the user does not need to click through so many pages to find information.

Decimal Format:  by default this is set to 0.00 but can be changed if required.

Show deleted lines by default:  if ticked, any deleted lines on a document will be shown.  By default, this is not ticked so a user must select that they want to view any deleted lines when viewing a document.


21.2. Functionality Banner

Sage configuration database string:  a full or partial connection string to the Sage Configuration database can be entered here to use the connection string from the web config file to fill in missing details; e.g. username and password.  This can be used to speed up adding new Sage companies into WAP.  This is not a mandatory field.

CRM Connection string:  a string will only need to be entered here if WAP is being connected with a CRM system.

Web API address:  this only needs to be configured if Sales Orders and Contracts are being used; contracts will be posted directly through to Sage prior to approval.

View Loaded Add-ons:  any loaded add-ons will be shown if applicable.

Close browser on Log Off:  if selected, when a user logs out of WAP the browser will close automatically.  Some companies require this as an additional security feature, particularly when single sign on is enabled.

Enable User Warehouses allocation:  this enables the functionality to allocate users to specific warehouses.

Use Non VAT rate only (uses configured non VAT rate per Sage database):  some Not-for-Profit or Charitable Organisations may require this setting to be checked if they cannot reclaim VAT or want to use a VAT inclusive or exclusive pricing module for requisition entry processing.

VAT Inclusive/Exclusive:  this setting is used in conjunction with the above setting; by default, this is set to be exclusive.

Enable Save Only Buttons on Document Entry:  if required, this setting can be enabled so users are only allowed to submit documents rather than save only.

Enable Sicon contract maintenance in WAP:  this only needs to be configured if Sales Orders and Contracts are being used.

Number of Security levels:  this relates to reporting abilities within the HR module.

Check for unsaved changes on leaving edit pages:  if enabled, a pop up will appear to users if they have made changes to a page and are moving away without clicking Save.  This is most noticeable when editing a user’s WAP profile.

Google Maps API key:  to use Google Maps functionality within the Expense module, enter an API key here.  For more information on Google API key requirements, please see the Expenses Help and User Guide.  *Include link to Expense HUG*

Google Maps Autocomplete minimum length:  enter how many characters are required before Google will start searching for a postcode or place; e.g. 3 or 4 – IP3 or IP33.  It can be useful to enter a value here to reduce the number of searches Google undertakes when users are entering a postcode.

Allow dismissal of Awaiting Approval notifications:  by default users won’t be able to dismiss notifications that are awaiting an action but if this is required, enable this setting.


21.3. Licencing Banner

Each year the WAP system will require a new enable string to continue working.  When the new string has been issued, select Apply New Licence and then Browse and Upload the licence string.  The module expiry date is shown along with the modules that have been enabled and the maximum number of users.  For more information on WAP licencing, please see the Applying WAP Licences Help and User Guide.


21.4. Default Company Details Banner

Logon page logo:  this is the logo that will show on the homepage to the user when they log into WAP.  This must be a .gif format, should be max 100dpi, and no more than 7-10cm wide and 5-7cm high.  N.B. only one logo can appear on the login page.

Default print page logo (will be resized):  this is the default logo that will appear on PO layouts and should be a .gif format and max 100dpi.  Individual logos can be uploaded against each company in Sage Connections if different logos should appear for each company.

System Email Address:  enter the email address that has been created for WAP to use; this is usually wap@companyname.co.uk.  This is a mandatory field if email integration is to be used.

All emails are sent from the System Email Address:  configure if all notification and supplier emails should be sent from the system email address.  By default, this is not ticked to allow POs to be emailed to suppliers from the user email account.  All notification emails will be sent from the system email address.

Service Error Notification Email Address:  enter an email address here if error notifications are required to be emailed to a particular user.  Any notification recorded in the Event Log will be sent to this email address.  It is advised an email address is entered here only when investigating if there is an issue with documents posting between WAP and Sage.

Bypass username and password validation (e.g. for Office 365):  only tick if the email account to be used is Office 365.

SMTP Username/Email/Password/Server/Port Number/Enable SSL:  an account must be entered for WAP to use to send emails out.  An IT contact who configured the email account will be able to provide the information required here.

Enable SMTP Email:  check this box to enable emails to be sent out from WAP.  It can be useful during initial implementation to uncheck this setting so when creating new users and testing the system emails are not sent out which could cause confusion.

Send a Test Email:  enter an email account and click send to ensure the email account settings have been configured correctly; any errors received should be reported back to the IT contact who initially configured the email account.  When testing it is advised to try sending an email to both an internal and external email address.


21.6. Notifications Banner

Notification Options:  set how the company requires notifications to be sent and whether reminders should be generated.  By default, the notification option is set for each module to be Document Item.  Document Type example notification – “A requisition is awaiting your approval”.  Document example notification – “Requisition for Supplier ‘ABC’ with ID Z for value £X needs your approval”.  Document Item example notification – “Item ‘X’ on Requisition Z with Delivery Date DD/MM/YYYY needs your approval”.

Use requisition line date to generate goods received reminder:  this is used in conjunction with the ‘Generate Reminders’ option against Document Type ‘Requisition’.  If this is ticked the requester will be sent a reminder each day past the delivery date if no goods have been received.

Automatically dismiss notifications after X days:  by default this is set to 14 days but can be amended if needed.

Generate Notifications for Out of Office users:  if this setting is on then notifications will be sent to any users marked as out of office and also their alternate users.  If this setting is not on, only the alternate users will get the notification, not the user who is marked as out of the office.

Include Company name in notifications:  this can be useful to switch on if users will receive notification emails across multiple companies to assist with identification of notifications.


21.7. Passwords / Security Banner

Require Complex User Account Passwords:  by default this is enabled with certain complexity requirements but these can be changed as needed to match company policy.

Remember me remembers password as well as username for automatic login:  if unchecked, this will only remember the user’s username, if the remember me option is ticked on the login page.

Hide ‘Remember Me’ option on Login page:  tick here if users should not be able to configure the WAP login screen to remember their username or password.

Allow users to change passwords on login:  if ticked this will allow users to change their password when they login.  If unchecked, the only way to change a user’s password is for an administrator to change on the user’s WAP profile.

Force Password change after number of days (0 for never):  if company policy is for users to change their password regularly, set the specified number of days here.

Allow users to request a ‘Forgotten password’ code:  tick to allow users the option on the login screen to enter their username and request a reset code be sent via email allowing them to access WAP and enter a new password.

Allow password reuse after how many passwords (0 for no checks):  if passwords should not be reused within a certain number of new passwords, enter a value here.

Number of failed logins before an IP Address is blocked:  the IP address will be blocked if a certain number of incorrect login attempts are made from the same IP address.  The IP address blocked will be that of the machine on the internal network, unless accessing WAP externally where the external IP address will be blocked.  Depending on which is blocked, it will either stop just the user trying to login or multiple users.  These IP blocks can be cleared using the ‘Delete all IP Address Lockouts’ button.


21.8. WAP Service Banner

Settings and functionality relating to the WAP service running are found here; please contact your Sage Business Partner if you have any queries relating to this service.


21.9. Cache / Memory Banner

Occasionally the cache (temporarily stored information from webpages) can prevent updated content being displayed or cause functionality problems; e.g. changes made in Sage not pulling through to WAP or a new logo not showing on the logon page.  These can be resolved by clearing the cache.


21.10. Logging Banner

Verbose Logging Enabled:  switch on to allow page access and memory to be recorded; by default, this is not enabled.  Verbose logging should only be enabled for a short period of time if diagnosing a particular WAP service issue.  If enabled, more detailed information will be recorded but this can result in large log files which can slow performance.


21.11. Sage 50 Payroll Banner

Add in ODBC details for Sage 50 Payroll to allow for importing of employees and HR data into WAP.


21.12. Mobile Access Banner

Enable Mobile Service:  this will enable the WAP system to allow access from mobile devices connected via the WAP app.

22. System Settings – Costing Tab

The Costing tab is used to link WAP through to a particular costing module or to stop posting into Sage Commercials.

Enable posting to Sage Commercials (SOP & POP):  only untick if the Sage install does not use Commercials so approved requisitions are not posted to Sage and invoices are entered directly into WAP.  N.B. if this is disabled, a costing module cannot be selected.

None:  check this if no costing module is to be enabled; this option is the default.

Job Costing:  select if linking WAP to Sicon Job Costing.  If this is selected, additional Job Costing settings will appear.

JC – Job Costing Percentage Complete Filter:  any jobs with a percentage complete figure greater than the figure entered here will not be pulled through to WAP.

JC – The number of transactions to display per page on summary:  this will determine on the Job Costing enquiry screen in WAP, how many transactions to display on the summary page.

JC – The number of transactions to display per page on main tabs when displayed in CRM:  if using CRM integration, this will determine on the Job Costing enquiry screen, how many transactions to display on the main tabs.

JC – The number of transactions to display per page on main tabs when displayed in WAP:  this will determine on the Job Costing enquiry screen in WAP, how many transactions to display on the main tabs.

JC – Job Costing Rates are allocated in Sage 200:  set against each employee in Job Costing which cost rates should be available in WAP to choose from when entering timesheets.

JC – Show the Cost to Complete tab in Job Costing list:  tick to show the cost to complete tab; if this shouldn’t be shown in WAP, untick.

WAP Projects:  select if linking to WAP Projects.

WP – Auto Generate WAP Project Numbers:  tick if project numbers should be auto generated or untick if project numbers should be entered manually.

Allow list selection of Project Items (if this is disabled users must use the tree):  by default, this is selected and will allow users to select a job and job header from the drop down list rather than using the tree structure.

Show tree selection box:  select this to allow the user to select a job header or project item using the tree structure; this can make it easier for users if projects have many layers of project items.  N.B. some screens (Rapid Timesheet Entry screen) do not allow for tree selection, users can only pick a project item from the drop down list.

Force Project Selection:  set to either Yes, No or Prompt to specify whether users should enter a job or project against each item line within WAP.  If Job Costing is configured, this should be set as Yes.  Yes, will force across all modules all lines to be entered against a Job and Job Header; Prompt will allow the user to not select a job but they will see a pop up asking if they should select a Job, and No will allow the line to be saved with no Job selected.


23. System Settings - Document Manager Tab

The Document Management tab is used to link WAP through to a document management system with some common settings regarding image location and size.


23.1. Common Settings Banner

25. System Settings - Expenses Tab

If the Expenses module is configured, this tab will be available to configure expense, mileage and subsistence system settings.


25.1. Functionality Banner

Post Expenses to Sage:  untick if all expense claims should not post through to Sage.

Nominal Account Source for Expense Items:  the expense item nominal can be set to default from either the user’s default nominal code (set on their WAP profile), to the Expense Item Type nominal or to the Project Item nominal code.  Users can only change the nominal if they have the User Type permission to do so.

Override expense type nominal with Project Item Nominal:  for example if the nominal code is being driven from the user’s expense item type but the Cost Centre or Department should be overridden from the job selected, tick this box.  Once ticked, options to override the account number, cost centre or department will be available.  N.B. this option is only applicable if using Job Costing.

Nominal Selection Filter Source:  if the user has permission to change the nominal code on expense entry, whether to allow the user to choose from all nominal accounts they have access to, or just nominal codes that have been assigned to that expense type.

Expense Claim Posting Method:  expenses can either be posted as a claim through to Sage Project Accounting or an invoice through to the user’s Purchase Ledger account.

Maximum Gratuity Percentage:  set as required to restrict the gratuity amount a user can claim.  A user will not be able to enter an expense claim with a gratuity amount higher than the percentage entered here.

Enable ‘Extra’ details tab for expenses:  this will enable the Extra tab on an expense claim where additional information (such as gratuity amounts, 1st class travel etc.) can be recorded if required.

Display Allocated (Paid) Status:  this will show to users when a payment has been allocated to their expense claim in Sage; only new expenses put onto the system after this setting is configured will show payment status.

Automatically Load Existing Expenses on Page Load:  choose whether to automatically load expense claims when the Existing Expense page is loaded, or whether the user needs to click to show their expenses.  This can prevent speed issues when loading if there are large numbers of expense claims.  N.B. by default completed expenses will not show; the Include Completed box will need to be ticked.

Enable Linking Requisitions to Expenses:  configure here if users will need to link a PO approved through the Requisition module to an expense claim.  N.B. the requisition must be raised by the user against their Purchase Ledger account; this will keep the PO within WAP (it won’t post through to Sage) and can then be linked to an expense claim.

Allow Negative Amounts:  this feature may be required to cope with refunds through Company credit card expense claims or against a user’s personal expense claim; e.g. prepayment of a hotel room booking which was not used.

Lock Expense currency to User account currency:  configure this setting if the user is to be restricted to only enter expense claims in the currency of their Purchase Ledger supplier account.  If disabled, currencies set up in Sage will appear in a dropdown selection.

Set Expense Header Date based on latest line on the expense claim:  if disabled, the expense header will default to the date the expense was initially entered.

Consolidate Expense Line nominal when posting to Sage:  if enabled, lines with the same nominal code on a user’s expense claim will be consolidated to one line when posting to Sage.

Obtain Expense Project Item from Expense Type:  if using a Costing Module, choose if the costing header should be selected from the Expense Type, rather than the user choosing manually.

Enter Expense Type into Line Description on selection:  this will populate the expense type name into the Description field; this can speed up expense line entry for users.

Disable printing Expense Vouchers (Send Email only):  if this is enabled, the user will not be able to print the expense voucher but will be able to email directly from WAP.

Prompt user on potential duplicate Expense Line entry:  if this is checked and the user enters an expense claim with the same expense item type, date and value, they will need to enter a reason for why this is not a duplicate claim.  Potential duplicate expense claims are highlighted as such to the approver.

Enable meeting selection on expense entry:  tick here if meetings are to be configured in the system against expense claims.

Meeting selection is mandatory on expense and mileage entry:  if all expense claims (i.e. subsistence claims, incidental claims, mileage and general expense entry) should be allocated to a meeting, ensure this setting is ticked.

Maximum number of characters in meeting codes:  if applicable, enter a maximum value for the meeting code.

Transaction Analysis Code Mandatory (if enabled in Sage):  if using transaction codes in Sage, these can be populated against an expense claim in WAP.  If it is mandatory for these codes to be entered in WAP, configure here.

Force Minimum Attachments Criteria:  if setting against an expense type the number of attachments that must be uploaded, configure here to either force attachments to be uploaded, prompt a user if no attachments but allow for users to not upload a receipt, or allow for users to save without an attachment.


25.2. Mileage Banner

Enable Mileage Line Entry:  untick here if the organisation does not permit mileage claims to be entered.

Mileage Unit (can be overridden per country):  select either Miles or Kilometres.  If required, this can be overridden per country (System Setup – Countries & Cities).

Mileage Year Change (can be overridden per country):  this is the date that the mileage values will be reset; i.e. the calculation of business miles recorded on a private vehicle.  If required, this can be overridden per country (System Setup – Countries & Cities).

Nominal Account Source for Mileage Items:  the mileage item nominal can be set to default to either the user’s default nominal code (set on their WAP profile), to the Expense Item Type, the Category Component or the Project Item nominal.  Users can only change the nominal code if they have the User Type permission to do so.

Obtain Mileage Project Item from Expense Type:  if Job Costing is being used, the default costing header can be set per Sage Company to automatically populate the job header when a user is submitting a mileage claim, rather than the user choosing manually.  The nominal can be driven by the job header if required.

Default ‘Receipt Attached’ Value:  for mileage claims it is possible to default the receipt attached value; if the receipt value is Yes, VAT will be calculated on the fuel component on the rate selected; if the receipt value is No, no VAT will be calculated.

Warn user when future mileage line date is entered:  if a user selects a future date on a mileage line, a pop up warning will appear to the user.

Record Personal Mileage in Company Vehicles:  this enables the user to enter personal mileage as well as business mileage against a company car.  This may be required for some company car schemes.

Enable claiming for passengers:  if the organisation allows for users to claim an extra passenger rate, configure this setting.

Prevent users editing calculated business mileage (use mileage amendment):  if the user is not allowed to manually enter mileage figures or edit the figure provided by Google, the user must use an amendment field and provide an explanation for why they are making an amendment.

Prompt user on potential duplicate Mileage Line entry:  if this is checked and the user enters a mileage claim with the same date and mileage figures, they will need to enter a reason for why this is not a duplicate claim.  Potential duplicate mileage claims are highlighted as such to the approver.

Mileage Line Declaration Required:  by default this setting is on with the below text.  When a user goes to enter a mileage claim, they must accept the below.  If they do not accept, they will not be able to submit a mileage claim.  This text can be edited to match the organisation’s required declaration text or can be turned off if required.


25.3. Subsistence Banner

Enable Subsistence Claims:  check if the organisation allows for subsistence claims; once checked, additional options will become visible.

Subsistence Overnight/Conference/Detention Rate Days:  the number of days incrementally that a rate applies; defaults are entered at install but can be edited in accordance with the organisation’s policy.

Disable ‘Receipt Attached’ drop down for Subsistence Claims:  if receipts are not required for subsistence claims, this setting should be configured.

Separate Meals and Accommodation in Subsistence Entry:  if required, the subsistence overnight and meal claims can be broken down to post to different nominal codes.  If configured, the Domestic and Foreign subsistence expense types will require nominal codes to be entered per Subsistence (Meals) and Subsistence (Accommodation).


26. System Settings – Invoices Tab

If the Invoices module is configured, this tab will be available to configure invoice system settings.


26.1. Functionality Banner

Allow duplicate Transaction References:  if invoices require editing once they are in the WAP system, e.g. nominal code to be changed, this setting will need to be enabled.

Pick up Proposed / Suggested Payments for approval in WAP:  if suggested payments should be approved in WAP, enable this setting.  If not ticked, suggested payments would not require approval in WAP before being paid in Sage.

Require Invoices to be recorded by matching to a Goods Received note:  applicable to invoices entered directly into WAP only.

Require Expected Invoice Values to Match Actual values when recording invoices:  applicable to invoices entered directly into WAP only.

Automatically populate the second reference with the WAP Invoice ID:  for invoices entered directly into WAP; automatically populate the second reference with the WAP document ID.

Approve invoices ‘Select all’ check box selects all items on the current page (off selects all items all pages):  if users have the User Type permission to select and approve multiple invoices at a time and if this setting is enabled, only invoices on the current page will be approved, preventing users from accidentally approving all items on all pages without checking the invoices on subsequent pages.

Display Allocated (Paid) Status:  whether to show the payment allocation status of an invoice; once a payment has been allocated to an invoice this will update in WAP to show either Unpaid, Allocated or Paid.

Automatically Load Existing Invoices on Page Load:  if ticked, all current invoices will be loaded automatically.  If not ticked, use the Search filters and Quick Links to display invoices required.  N.B. by default Completed invoices will not show unless the option to include completed is ticked.

Validate a Sage accounting period exists for the Invoice Transaction Date:  when ticked, the system will validate whether the accounting period exists when saving or submitting an invoice.  This setting is applicable only to invoices entered directly into WAP.

Number of seconds old Invoices / Credits have to be before picked up by the WAP service for approval:  by default this is set to zero so invoices will be picked up by the WAP service as soon as they are saved in Sage.  If other third party software must be run in Sage once an invoice has been saved prior to WAP picking the invoice up, enter a value here, e.g. 60 seconds.

Transaction Analysis Code Mandatory (if enabled in Sage):  applicable to invoices entered directly into WAP only; if transaction analysis codes have been configured in Sage, these must be completed in WAP.

Restrict Invoice Line Date Entry:  applicable to invoices entered directly into WAP only; this can restrict the time period an invoice can be entered.

When Placing Invoices on Hold:  notifications can be sent to previous/current/future approvers to advise the invoice has been placed on hold.  If this setting is changed, please ensure the WAP service is restarted as this relates to email notifications.


27. System Settings – Holidays Tab

If the Holidays module is configured, this tab will be available to configure holiday, bank and mandatory holiday settings.


27.1. Functionality Banner - General Tab

Default holiday period start date:  set as per the organisation’s holiday period start date; the default will be configured as January 1st.  Each user can have a different holiday start date if required, this is set on their user profile (User Setup – Users – Holidays); i.e. if their holiday year starts on a different date.

Default holiday entitlement for users (hours):  enter the standard number of holiday entitlement in hours, again, this can be overridden per user on their user profile.  The default entitlement will be the number of working hours in a day multiplied by the default holiday days; e.g. 7.5 x 28 to give 210 as the default.

Do not allow submission of holiday requests if there is a conflict with already booked holiday of a specified user:  if enabled, conflicting users will not be able to submit holiday for the same date(s).  If not configured, conflicting users can submit holiday requests for the same date(s) and the requesting user and approver will be notified of the conflict at the point of submitting the request and when approving the request.

Allow entry of historic holiday requests:  this allows pre-dated holiday requests, within the same holiday entitlement year – a user cannot claim holiday in a date if they do not have entitlement that covers that year.  This may be required if the Holiday module is implemented part way through the holiday year and already taken holiday needs to be entered onto the system.

Do not allow submission of holiday requests if the user has not accrued enough holiday:  accrued entitlement will be calculated based either on the holiday year start date, or the employee’s start date (entered on their user profile), if this date is after the holiday year start date.  If this setting is ticked, the user cannot submit a holiday request if it is greater than their accrued holiday.

Allow booking single hours:  the system will by default allow users to book holiday in days or half day amount; enabling this setting will allow single hours on a day to be booked.

Who to send meeting requests to on final approval:  this setting will automatically email meeting requests to add approved holiday to relevant users’ Outlook calendars.  N.B. the meeting invite will be sent to the email address linked to the user on their WAP profile, will be sent from the system email address (as configured in System Settings – Email) and will contain details of the holiday request in the body of the email.  On final approval of a holiday request, a meeting invite can be sent to different users depending on configuration:

  • None – no meeting invites are sent.
  • Requestor – a meeting invite is sent to the user who submitted the holiday request.
  • Default Business Unit – if the user who submitted the holiday request has a default business unit allocated, the meeting invite is sent to all users who are part of that business unit.
  • All Business Units – the meeting invite will be sent to all users of all business units the user who submitted the holiday request belongs to.
  • All Users – the meeting invite will be sent to all active WAP users.

Automatically set users out of office when holiday starts:  if enabled, when a user enters a holiday request they can select an alternate user to cover their holiday period.  When the holiday starts, the requesting user’s WAP out of office is automatically switched on and any documents requiring approval will also be sent to the chosen alternate user.

Automatically set users out of office when holiday ends:  if enabled, when a user enters a holiday request they can select an alternate user to cover their holiday period.  When the holiday has ended, the requesting user’s WAP out of office is automatically switched off.


27.2. Functionality Banner – Non-Working Days Tab

WAP is installed with the default country’s bank holidays as standard and are referred to as Non-Working days which will not be deducted from a user’s annual entitlement.  At install, the default country is England but this can be changed if required (System Setup – Countries and Cities).  Additional non-working days can be added as required; either for the whole year by selecting the year and clicking ‘Add bank holidays to selected country for year (GB only)’ or by selecting the country, entering a description, date and clicking ‘Add Non-Working Day’.

Other Options:  Reprocess Timesheets will remove current non-working days already posted to timesheets and re-post per dates on the screen and will need to be run if new days are added.


27.3. Functionality Banner – Mandatory Holidays Tab

This function enforces mandatory holiday which will be taken from the user’s entitlement.  These mandatory holidays can be added as per the organisation’s requirements; i.e. Christmas Shutdown.  If additional mandatory dates are added, the Reprocess Timesheets option will need to be run again to update users’ timesheets.


28. System Settings – Requisitions Tab

28.2. General Tab – Functionality Banner

Sicon MRP Integration Enabled:  this will only be switched on if orders generated via MRP should be pulled through to WAP for approval.

Allow out of hours’ orders:  if enabled, out of hours’ requisitions can be raised that will post straight through to Sage and create a PO number, but will need to be approved retrospectively.

Enable ‘Free Text’ line entry:  untick this setting if users should not be able to enter a free text line.

Enable ‘Stock Item’ line entry:  untick this setting if users should not be able to enter a stock item line.

Enable ‘Comment’ line entry:  untick this setting if users should not be able to add comment lines on a requisition.

Enable ‘Additional Charge’ line entry:  untick this setting if users should not be able to add additional charge lines on a requisition; it may be that postage or carriage costs should be added as either a free text or stock item line.

Auto populate Order Date with current date:  by default this setting is on but can be unticked if the user should select the required order date.

Auto populate Delivery Date with current date:  untick this setting if users should be forced to select the correct delivery date rather than the date being automatically populated with the order date.

Automatically post to Sage when raising a requisition:  this setting should only be used where a PO can be created and a PO number raised before the requisition is approved.  This setting is not commonly used; a requisition should be fully approved before a PO is created.

Allow requisitions to be submitted without a Supplier:  this setting will allow users to enter lines on a requisition without selecting a supplier; a supplier must be selected prior to the requisition posting through to Sage.

Auto populate supplier from stock item preferred supplier (if no supplier set):  this setting would be used in conjunction with the setting above so when a stock item is selected, the preferred supplier will populate the supplier field on the requisition header page.

Use supplier price breaks (Enhancement pack required):  if Sicon Enhancement pack is configured in Sage and a stock item has been configured to use supplier price breaks, these can be read by WAP.

Allow requisitions to be saved without lines added:  by default, if a requisition is added with no lines, the system will prompt users to allow for the requisition to be saved but if this shouldn’t be possible, this setting can be configured to not allow this.

Value to use for Document Date when posting Requisitions:  this can either be set to use the requisition document date or the current date; i.e. the date when the requisition is approved and posts through to Sage.

Allow Past dates on Requisition Entry:  by default the system won’t allow requisitions to be raised in the past but if this is required, this box can be ticked.

Maximum Number of lines on a requisition:  by default this is configured to allow no more than 200 lines on a requisition but this can be amended accordingly to match company requirements.

Disable submitting of over budget requisitions:  if required, users can be prevented from saving a requisition if the line has a nominal or job that is over budget.  If configured, it can cause users to select another nominal code or job that is within budget but may not be the correct one.

Select Stock Item Default Nominal Account when a Stock Item has been selected:  if configured, the nominal code will be populated from the stock item selected, rather than the user having to select manually.

Allow amendment of Discount Percent on Requisition Entry:  this will allow users to make changes to any discount percent against an item.

Stock Item Pricing Mode:  select from the drop down list the appropriate stock pricing mode; by default, this is configured as set on supplier.

Use Warehouse Nominal Account Override:  if configured, the nominal cost centre or department can be overridden based on the warehouse selected on the stock item line.

Enable Document Number Prefix:  this setting can allow a prefix to the PO number; the prefix is pulled from Sage Connections against the specific company.

Enable Free Text Delivery Addresses:  this option will allow users to free type a delivery address on a requisition; this is usually not recommended as the preferred option is to allow users to select an address from a drop down box.

Enable Supplier Delivery Addresses:  this option allows users to select the supplier’s address as configured in Sage.

Enable Project Delivery Addresses:  if a costing module is configured, addresses from projects can be selected.

Enable Customer Delivery Addresses:  if applicable, the customer’s address from the costing module project can be selected.

Disable Nominal Selection when a project is selected:  if enabled, the nominal code will pull through from the Job Header/Project Item on the requisition line, instead of the user having to select the nominal code.

Retain Line Information on Save:  with this ticked information such as the nominal code or job will be held when the line is saved.  This can speed up the requisition entry process for users who input requisitions with lots of lines where the nominal code or job is not changed.

On line delivery date, use the order header requested delivery date rather than the stock lead time date:  by default, if a stock item has a lead time set against it in Sage, the line delivery date will be changed to reflect this.  If this setting is configured, the line delivery date will remain as the delivery date set on the order header page.

No default tax rate on new orders:  if enabled, users will need to select the appropriate tax rate for that line on the requisition.  If disabled, the default tax rate will be pulled through from how the company has been configured in Sage PL.

Use ‘Standard’ tax rate only (Charge Items):  configure so only the standard tax rate can be used on charge lines.

Use Supplier Default Tax Rate (Charge Items):  configure so the tax rate set against the supplier in Sage PL is used; if not configured, the standard tax rate set against the company in Sage Connections will be used.

Automatically Load Existing Orders on Page Load:  by default, this will be on and if a user clicks on Existing Requisitions, orders they have raised will be loaded automatically.  If this is causing speed issued, this can be turned off to force users to search for specific orders.

Allow confidential requisitions:  if enabled, a check box will appear on the requisition header page for the user to flag the requisition as confidential.  This means the requisition will only be seen by the requester, required approver and any users with the View All Requisition User Type permission.

Enable ‘Call off’ Requisitions:  if enabled, a check box will appear on the requisition header page for the user to flag the requisition as a call off order.

‘Call off’ requisitions label:  the call off field can be renamed as required.

Requisitions are ‘Call off’ requisitions by default:  if all, or the majority of orders are call off orders, this can be ticked.  Users are still able to untick the box is a non-call off order is being raised.

Allocate Stock Items by WAP Delivery Address:  configure if stock items should be allocated based on the delivery address entered when the requisition is raised.


28.3. General Tab – Goods Received Banner

Enable Receive All button on Goods Received:  if enabled, a Receive All option on the goods received process will automatically populate the quantity to be received from the outstanding quantity values.

Allow over receipt of goods:  if enabled, users will be allowed to over receipt goods.  By default, this is not configured.

Goods Received Reference Source:  the reference recorded in Sage can either be the Goods Received Supplier Document Number (Reference), the WAP Username, or both.

Enable editing Free Text line description when partially received/invoiced:  if allowed, free text line descriptions can be edited when the line has been partly goods received or invoiced.


28.4. General Tab – Order Templates banner

Auto Populate Delivery Date:  if ticked, the delivery date will auto populate to the current date.  If unticked, the user must select a specific delivery date.

Override Warehouses based on User:  the warehouse selected on templates can be defaulted to that set per user (User Setup – Warehouses).

Enable All Supplier Stock Items Template:  if enabled, this template will be available to users when raising a stock requisition.

Enable User Order Template Allocation:  if enabled, multiple templates can be crated and users allocated to them as required (User Setup – Requisition Templates).


28.5. General Tab – Justification Banner

Sage Database:  select whether the justification bands are for one specific database or valid across all Sage Companies.

Enter Justification bands as required; in the example above, documents under £500 do not require a quote to be attached, documents between £500 and £5,000 must have one quote attached and documents over £5,000 must have two quotes attached.  When creating the justification bands there cannot be any overlapping; e.g. £0 – £500 band and also £200 – £400.


28.6. Printing Tab

These settings are legacy settings relating to versions prior to v18; any changes made here will not affect the PO Layouts configured in Sage Connections.


28.7. Analysis Codes Tab

WAP Requisitions can pull through up to 20 Sage POP Analysis Codes as required; these are configured in Sage (Accounting System Manager and POP Maintenance).  Selecting Default will populate the requisition with the corresponding code from Sage POP.  If the WAP settings are configured to ‘Populate from Order’, the analysis codes will appear at the bottom of the requisitions Delivery and Invoicing tab, but if the setting is changed to ‘Validate on Line’, the codes can be selected at the time of entering each line and therefore can be different per line.

The codes can be marked as Mandatory and if they need to appear on the Existing Requisitions or Approve Requisitions grids in WAP, check the ‘Include in Grids’ option.  If the code labeling needs to be changed to make it more user friendly, tick the custom label box and enter the new narrative as required.

It is also possible to populate the Sage POP Analysis Codes with particular WAP fields.  Check in Sage the number of the next free analysis code in Sage POP and then within WAP select from the drop down list available.  In the example below, the POP Analysis Code 4 will be populated with the Requisitioner Name.

Update Works orders as soon as time added to timesheet (on save):  the hours will post through to the appropriate Works Order as soon as the user saves the timesheet.

Update Job Costing transaction as soon as timesheet submitted:  if enabled, the labour transactions will appear as committed costs when the timesheet is submitted for approval and update to an actual cost when fully approved.

Split Timesheet Project Lines by Work Pattern:  this setting should be enabled if ‘Automatic selection of cost rate based on standard timesheet work pattern’ functionality is required.

Allow timesheets to be copied:  if enabled, this will allow users to copy an approved timesheet from one week to another.

Don’t allow users to submit timesheets if required contracted hours haven’t been reached:  a user’s contracted hours are set on their WAP user profile; if this setting is configured, they won’t be able to submit their timesheet until these hours have been reached.

Check contracted hours based on the total of timesheets across all companies:  if users are submitting timesheets across multiple Sage companies, check this setting if the contacted hours check is to be done across multiple companies.

Don’t allow users to submit timesheets if daily maximum hours exceeded:  daily maximum hours can be entered on their WAP user profile; if this setting is configured, a user cannot submit their timesheet if their daily hours have gone over their maximum allowance.

Automatically approve timesheets within variance allowance:  an allowed variance can be setup to allow timesheets to be processed if the time logged on the ‘Login Activity’ tab compared to the time logged against a job/project is within a certain percentage.  If the setting ‘Login and Project activity totals must match when submitting a timesheet’ is checked, the variance allowance is used to check if a timesheet can be manually submitted.  If ‘Auto Submit Timesheets’ is being used, this setting is overridden and timesheet lines that are not within the allowed variance can be set to go to different approval routes to allow a moderator or team leader to adjust the times against the project.

Show delegate user as final approver when a timesheet is approved as a delegate:  if a delegate is used to approve a timesheet, the final approver will change to show the delegate user instead of the standard approver.

Enable report approval lists using User Types:  this setting is no longer applicable.

Maximum number of weeks in advance to allow users to enter timesheets for:  a value can be set here if users should not be allowed to enter their timesheets far in advance.

Prevent multiple allowance lines of the same cost code to be added:  this can be enabled if users are only allowed to add one allowance line at a certain allowance cost code per timesheet; i.e. if users can only claim one overnight allowance per day.

Number of hours to limit allowance line entries to:  the number of allowance hours entered on a timesheet can be limited as required.

Automatically load existing timesheets on page load:  for speed reasons this can be disabled; i.e. if the existing timesheets page is taking a long time to load up all timesheets.

Use Holiday work pattern when adding holiday to timesheets:  by default, the holiday hours approved through WAP holiday module will post to users’ timesheets based on their timesheet work pattern, but if required, this setting can be enabled to pick up the hours from the holiday work pattern.  For example, if a user’s standard timesheet work pattern is for Monday 5 hours, Tuesday 4 hours and Wednesday 5 hours, and the user books a Monday – Wednesday holiday, their holiday work pattern can be set as 4.25 hours on each day to average the hours accordingly.
