Database Maintenance Alerts


MSDs (Master Sale Departments)

Tender Types

The Tender Type alert indicates that a new Tender has been picked up from the POS and must have a Tender Type assigned on the Tenders page for proper reporting.

  • Note: Any Tender with the Tender Type ‘Unknown’ will not be included in most Tender reports


Job ExportIDs

The Job ExportIDs alert indicates that one or more new Jobs have been picked up from the POS and must have their Job ExportID entered on the Jobs page.

Important Note: While the Job ExportID alert is driven by the Job Export ID field, this field is only used for Custom Payroll Exports. If a Custom Payroll Export is not in use for the database, any number, including ‘0’, can be entered to clear the alert.

Best Practice: Complete all configurations for the Job when entering the Job Export ID.

To clear this alert, the broken GL mappings must be repaired on the GL Sales Rules page.

Note: Only a member of the R365 Support Team can clear the GL Sales Rules alert. Once the broken rules are repaired, please submit a Support Ticket to have the alert cleared.
