Finance and Operations authentication upgraded to OpenIDConnect

For our customers using the client for Finance and Operations apps, we’re retiring the out-of-support WS-Federation authentication protocol, and replacing it with the industry standard OpenIdConnect OAuth security protocol. OpenIdConnect OAuth security protocol supports modern authentication, which includes multi-factor authentication and conditional access policy.

Save time during close with a trial balance including unposted detail

We have a fantastic new report that I have had customers asking me about for years. We now have a trial balance report based on Electronic Reporting that can generate a trial balance including unposted transactions. This is a great time saver during close where you can preview journals and verify expected results prior to final posting.
