Upgrading Your Sage 50 Accounting 2021
At some point, you’ll see that your business has outgrown the features available in your present Sage 50 Accounting product (for example, Sage 50 Premium Accounting). If your business requires more progressive accounting features or it must allow more concurrent users, Sage 50 Accounting provides two suitable upgrade options.
- Moving to a better Sage 50 Accounting product – If your business requires a richer set of accounting features, you’ll upgrade to the newest release of a better Sage 50 Accounting product (for example, moving from Sage 50 Premium Accounting to Sage 50 Quantum Accounting) this feature also upgrades your version of Sage 50 Accounting if you’re not already using the newest release of the program.
- Adding more user licenses – If you would like to grow the number of concurrent users in Sage 50 2021 Accounting, you’ll upgrade your program to permit more users. If you’re not using the newest release, you’ll get the newest one and move to a better Sage 50 Accounting product at an equivalent time.
To add specific features, like organizing your company into departments or recording time and billing services, you’ll upgrade your current Sage 50 Accounting product to at least one with the features that you simply need. Compare the features within the various Sage 50 Accounting products to assist you to create the simplest selection.
Two different licensing options within the Sage 50 Quantum Accounting also allow you to extend the utmost number of users which will add an equivalent company file at an equivalent time. If you’ve acquired a 5-user license for the Sage 50 Quantum Accounting edition, you’ll quickly upgrade your user license to allow more concurrent users.
Sage 50 2021 New Features
Sage 50 2021 was released on July 15th, 2020. The new release provides a couple of new features that improve simple use. It also steps up security for those that integrate Sage 50 with Gmail. And therefore the new feature that I haven’t had an opportunity to check yet but has the potential to be an enormous time-saver is integration with AutoEntry.com. I’ll give more details about it when I’ve had an opportunity to check it.
Read on for the entire list of the latest features in Sage 50 2021.
Memorized Purchase Invoices
Purchase Invoices/Bills have been added to the list of transaction types you’ll memorize. Complete or partial transactions can easily be memorized and thereafter quickly identified and edited or used as is to keep lots of time and make data entry more exact and efficient.
Improved Visibility of Item ID and Job ID in Transaction Windows
In transaction windows with Item and Job fields, you’ll now hover your mouse over the sector to look at the whole Item ID or Job ID/Phase/Cost Code. Also as any Assemblies/Phase and price Codes related to the Item or Job ID.
Improved Gmail Integration
The mixing with Gmail has been updated to satisfy Google’s new security standards. This improves both security and convenience. Once Sage 50 is permitted in Gmail you won’t have to enter your Gmail password every day before sending an email from Sage 50.
Ship to call for Customer Lists
The Ship to call is now available to feature like a column within the Sales Order list, Proposal List, and Sales Invoice list. The Ship to call also now appears on the Customer Management tab for Sales Invoices, Sales Orders, Quotes, Item Sales History by Customer, and Proposals. Having the Ship to call adds convenience and makes it easy to filter or group invoices, orders, quotes, or proposals by Ship to call.
AutoEntry.com may be a cloud-based service (additional fees apply) that aims to eliminate manual data entry of purchase invoices. It analyzes scanned and digital invoices then enter them into your Sage 50 company via an integration benefit that runs always within the background. Invoices are often captured in summary or with item detail.

Notifications from Sage now show in particular callouts on the side of the program, making them both less intrusive and more smoothly accessed.

Connected services like Remote Data Access, Bank Feeds, or Invoice Payments, will now all be accessed using your Sage ID. Together with your Sage ID, you’ve got one secure login to all or any of your connected services without the necessity to enter emails and passwords for every individual service.
