Sage 200 – Add audit log to purchase ledger payment processing menu

Summary – Payment processing menu

Audit Log was introduced in Sage 200 version Winter 2018 / v12.00.0027 primarily for recording changes to supplier bank details; the menu option is found under Accounting System Manager >> Audit Log menu, though you might like to add to the purchase ledger payment processing menu to make it easier to review changes to bank details when creating supplier payments.

What does adding audit log to purchase ledger payment processing menu do?

Adding Audit Log to the payment processing menu will remind users to check the audit log when paying suppliers, as well as make it quicker and easier to use this option.

How do I do this?

Click the Edit Menu icon at the top right of the menu panel to enter edit mode.

Right-click the Purchase Ledger >> Period End Routines >> Payment Processing menu and select Add New Menu Item from the pop-up menu.

On the New Menu Item screen select Accounting System Manager > Administration > View Audit Log

Title – ensure this is View Audit Log

Against Custom Icon click the button with 3 dots and select the icon called FORM (or select another icon of your choice).

Click OK

You will now see View Audit Log at the bottom of the Payment Processing menu.

If you wish, you can move Audit Log up the menu by highlighting it then using the up arrow in the green panel above the menu.

When you have added and positioned the menu item, click X in the top right of the Edit Menu panel to close edit mode.

If you expand the payment processing menu you might see the View Audit Log is still at the bottom of the menu; close Sage 200 then log back in again and you should now find it is now where you positioned it.
