2023 R1: A look at our major release

What's new?

Based on feedback from our partners and customers, we're introducing new features in our first release of 2023 that add value to your workday.

To get a complete overview of the latest and upcoming features for each solution, head over to Continia Docs:

Document Capture

  • Support for purchase and return orders in approval workflows: Approve your purchase and return orders using Document Capture's outstanding approval workflow functionality. You can approve them quickly with all existing Continia workflow features, including the Web Approval Portal.
  • New category for creating and updating purchase orders: Reduce manual typing and eliminate errors by automatically creating and updating your purchase orders based on order confirmations sent by your vendor.
  • Support for prepayments: Easily manage advanced payments required by vendors for goods and services. Document Capture automatically posts documents as prepayment invoices when identified or marked as prepayments, linking them to an associated purchase order.
  • Create general journal lines without a vendor balancing account: Increase flexibility with small purchases by selecting a bank or G/L balancing account instead of the default vendor account.
  • Support for Business Central Universal Code initiative: Keep compliant with Microsoft's Universal Code initiative so you can continue to use all the powerful Document Capture on-premises features as usual.

Document Output 

  • Support for ZUGFeRD and Factur-x: You can now embed an XML file in a PDF, making invoicing with companies requiring these formats much more accessible.

  • Customize your email attachments based on your recipients: Say goodbye to the one-size-fits-all approach in report selection when generating PDF files. You can now further customize report selection by filtering recipients based on dimensions.
  • Exchange configuration through web service using OAUTH2.0: Connect any version of NAV or Business Central supported by Document Output to Azure so you can connect to Microsoft Office 365. 
  • Import localized email templates: Import email templates in different languages so that localizing them to the recipient's desired language is possible based on data extracted from the standardized templates. 


Expense Management

  • Purchase Contracts (new add-on module): Save time managing and reviewing your company's contracts and subscriptions with a complete overview of all active agreements, which ensures correct invoicing.
  • Calculation improvements for mileage receipt VAT (UK Market): You can now easily calculate VAT refunds from your employees' mileage fuel "rate" for tax deduction purposes.
  • Portuguese and Polish translation: Expense Management is now available in Portuguese and Polish language layers.
  • Payment types for user groups: Easily set up and use different payment types for multiple user groups. 
  • Payment type UI improvements: Creating payment types is quicker than ever. Subfields are only visible if their field group is selected, cutting down on the overwhelm of options.
  • Support for Business Central Universal Code initiative: Keep compliant with Microsoft's Universal Code initiative so you can continue to use all the powerful Expense Management on-premises features as usual.
