MoneyWorks doesn’t use Log4j

Cognito has released MoneyWorks 9.0.7 update, primarily a bug fix.

“Log4j” vulnerability, according to the cyber security expert, is a critical security vulnerability in Java logging library. MoneyWorks doesn’t use Log4j and hence no exposure to this exploit.

Visit the Cognito website for the change history in version 9.0.7.

Page numbering

The Page is a page numbering field in MoneyWorks form designer which you can insert into the form (template) such as invoice or purchase order.

Page numbering is a sequential number applied on a document (or book).

Add a calculation box into the template, then add the page field into the calculation box, check the Always Calculate checkbox to allow the system to calculate and print the page number accordingly.

The custom templates (such as invoice, Purchase Order, Statement forms, etc.), reports, import map, and attachment are store in the Custom Plugins folder. You have to activate the Custom Plugins folder by clicking the ‘Make a Custom Plugins folder’ button from the Housekeeping navigator after you have created the company file. Once activated, the system adds the MoneyWorks Custom Plug-ins folder with subfolders for Forms, Import Maps, Picture for Company, Reports, and Scripts into the local drive automatically.
