Recent updates added these features to our royalty software;


04.06.02

  • Improvement: New fields added to export functions on: Royalty Analysis Report, Royalty Statement.
  • Improvement: Author preferred payment method added to mail merge on royalty statement mailing templates and mail merge from royalty contracts view.
  • Improvement: Additional fields added to Permissions import (item paid, paid date, payment method, payor’s reference)
  • Improvement: Permissions import: default components created for titles and/or ISBNs with no component name referenced.

Users with the Optional Rights module can now import permission sales and payments at the same time. This is useful for clients that use an outside service; such as the Copyright Clearance Center, to handle permission and reprint sales.

• (v 3.11.112) Tools -> Backup: suggested (default) filename no longer includes the full folder path name as part of the backup file name, resulting in (much) shorter filenames. Also, suggested (default) location changed to the same folder as the data file being backed up.

• (v 3.11.112) Royalty statements, sales-based reserves format: reserves brought forward were not showing in the detail section (though the summary section was correct). This has been fixed.

• (v 3.11.118) Author royalty statements: Save As (e.g. to .rtf) – some statements that printed correctly might crash when saving to .rtf. This has been fixed.

• (v 3.11.119) Author payments: the ‘paid/unpaid’ status now remains unlocked even after accounting on a royalty statement (so that unpaid advances which were reported on statements can be subsequently marked as ‘paid’)

• (v 3.11.119) Agent’s package: new document: Author Invoice (invoice for commission on payments received)

• (v 3.11.120) Submissions -> Quick command -> Modify: if the following fields were left blank, the command was incorrectly blanking out the corresponding fields in the selected items: language, license type, season, account executive. This has been fixed.
