Feature Update

Release: September 2017

We’re excited to announce that we’ve made eight major improvements to Sage Intelligence for Accounting that will make using the reporting solution easier!
What to look out for?

Standard Reports page

Here you’ll find the ready-to-use reports that ship with Sage Intelligence.

Reporting options button

This button will make it quick and easy to create reports and folders.

My Reports page

Your copied, customized or imported reports will be saved here.

Re-naming reports

Custom reports can be renamed to a preferred name with a few clicks.

Adding descriptions

You can add descriptions to new, customised and imported reports to clarify the output of each report.

Save reports to folders

When saving a new, copied, or imported report, you’ll be able to select which folder you want to save them to.

Grouped Help resources

All Help resources have been logically grouped together in one easy-to-access place.

Export to PDF

In addition to “downloading” reports to Excel, you’ll be able to export them to PDF as well.

Feature Update

Release: April 2017

In our journey to delivering a dynamic online reporting solution, we’ve designed four new reporting features, which are now available to you:


Get a visual representation of your financial and sales information. An example is seeing how much of your costs every Rand of sales covers, and how much of it is profit.

Management packs

Consolidate your reports into one workbook. These can also be downloaded in Excel format and will still be linked to your Accounting data.

Excel report storage

Keep your Excel reports safe and secure in the cloud. Remember these are still linked to your Accounting data.

Custom folder creation

Navigate to your reports easier and reduce clutter.

Feature Update

Release: March 2016

Exporting Reports

As well as creating reports, you are now able to export / import reports. This makes it possible to import reports into different user accounts i.e. create a report, download it then share the downloaded file with another user.

The other user will be able to import the downloaded file.

Current / Prior Period Parameters

This fun new feature allows columns to always reference a current period rather than select an individual period in a column property.

The same methodology can apply for a prior period.

Hide Rows / Columns

When creating a calculation column or row, the calculator will only allow you to insert rows or columns that exist in the report. However, in certain instances you may not want to see these rows / columns. To resolve this issue, you can now hide rows or columns you would not like to be visible in the report.

Once a row or column has been hidden it is greyed out on the preview screen.

Feature Update

Release: February 2016

Sage Intelligence is now available within Accounting so you can take advantage of cloud technology for reporting. To access Intelligence, select Reports in the Accounting menu and then click Intelligence. You will need to logon using the same details as you do with Accounting. Once successfully signed in, you’ll see a web page that is intuitive to navigate and easy to understand.

The page will show you the following features

My Reports:
Clicking on this icon will take you to a folder which contains all your ready-to-use and customised report layouts.

Create Financial Reports:
This feature allows you to create a custom report from scratch using functions and formulas that make the design process easy, all without leaving Accounting!
