For Sage ESS customers only:

Sage MicrOpay Client Service v 3.0.0.3

This update includes the following changes:

  • MCS will not automatically re-synchronise approved leave applications previously imported into Sage MicrOpay, after a database is restored. This is to maintain consistency in applied leave between Sage MicrOpay and Sage ESS or other third party self-service system.
  • Leave changes through Sage ESS or third-party self-service systems, will now be passed to Sage MicrOpay at set intervals (maximum 15 minutes) rather than immediately. This is to prevent duplicate handling of some applications.
  • This release fixes an issue that prevented payment summaries from being displayed in Sage ESS or third party self-service systems.
