Last Date Deducted?_(Payroll module; a new field in the Employee Deduction Master file, PAYDEDM; because this field will automatically populate when the 9/30/2013 updates to Payroll module are executed, the update will take longer than usual as the deduction pay masters in all payrolls must be accessed and sorted by payroll date).
Laser Billing Statement?_(Utility Billing module; a new 8.5 x 11 billing statement).
Job and Personnel Demographics Export (Payroll module; report produces a tab-delimited file containing personnel and job information based on active deduction descriptions).

Click for?_Product Announcements. Once on the Product Announcements page, change the RDA Category to the desired one and/or to the desired Module. The Start Date for the product announcements defaults to three months before the current calendar date but can be changed as needed/desired so that you’re seeing less (or more) announcements.
