CYMA Release History: CYMA 23

Release Date: August 2023

The CYMA Version 23 Release is a major release including enhancements and corrections.

Highlights include:

Multi Year SUTA Rates

CYMA 23 has added an extensive method for tracking and reporting SUTA rates over multiple years and for multiple states. In previous versions of CYMA, when SUTA rates are updated, the current year rates become the only rate used in reporting. Now in Version 23, SUTA rates can be defined for all years in the CYMA system. Reports using prior year criteria will now accurately reflect the year defined rather than the current value in the configuration. Additionally, rates can be setup or imported by state or by client.

New Clear Daily Time Entries Options from the Process Menu
CYMA added the ability to Clear Daily Time Entries from Process menu. Previously, hours needed to be reversed through import or manual edit of each employee.

Reissue Voided Checks for Terminated Employees
In previous versions of CYMA, you could void a check for a terminated employee and reset their entries to the current pay period. Unfortunately, you could not change their status back to active to reissue a check. In Version 23, you will now be able to specify if a final check is necessary and continue with the Calculate Payroll option.

Limited Editing of Posted GL Journal Entries
After an analysis of the Journal Entry process, CYMA has opened up the editing of some fields in Journal Entries that have been posted. Description, Reference, and Attachments can be modified in Journal Entries in an open GL year. If the JE, appears in a closed year the only option remains to delete.

Purge Enhancements
CYMA’s Purge Utilities are vital for keeping an optimized system. In Version 23, CYMA has greatly enhanced the speed in which the process performs as well as providing additional options for reducing the overall footprint of the data.

Global Temporary File Handling
Optimized record deletion techniques used with temporary files impacting performance in both processing and reporting.

Employee Self-Service Portal
Optimized several queries used when retrieving historical check information resulting in faster retrieval of information.
