New Features - Progident/Finance


Payroll Bank

It is now possible to always accumulate the hours of employee banks at a simple rate. In this approach, a conversion is performed if the accumulated hours of the timesheet are at half or double rate. Thus, the hours are more significant than the amount of the bank.

In addition, it is now possible to define whether the hourly rate to be initialized in the timesheet when using a bank must be the employee's current hourly rate or the equivalent average rate of the bank.

To complete this bank management, the "Calculate provision" function has been improved by introducing a "Calculate amount according to the hourly rate" option. Therefore, during hourly rate changes, it is possible to automatically adjust the bank balance according to the changes made to the hourly rate.


Expense Statement

The full exploitation of the job profile was integrated into the expense statement according to the same logic as that of the timesheet.

Thus, four fields have been added to the statement of expenses, namely:

  • Job profile code
  • Employee status
  • Group of employees
  • Classification unit

It is, therefore, now possible to select a job profile code different from the default one.

In addition, contributory expenses for the CNESST can be managed by units since the classification code is now present on the expense statements.

A new feature has been added to the timesheet and the expense statement, as a "Transfer to projects" button.

This new function allows a user (employee) to transfer their timesheets and expense reports to project costs when they wish and if the activation rights of this option are granted to them.

The initialization of the WIP tab (WIP calculation) is performed each time a billable transaction is added.

Therefore, this significant improvement allows complete transparency between time entry and the invoicing of professional services by enabling an employee to immediately transfer their time entered and the manager to invoice the client directly.

In summary, it is no longer necessary to wait for an administrative stakeholder to perform a payroll calculation in "Expense only" mode to transfer the data entered by an employee to project costs.

Automatic time savings, but above all, more dynamic and fluid billing for your professional services.

Version 11.3.2


It is now possible to create configurators for "System" type modifiers, for example, for the Régie de rente du Québec (QUERRQ) modifier, and thus have the possibility of not calculating the RRQ such as for certain transaction codes.

Important note: During Progident/Finance updates, the "User" type configurators will be retained.


Web Timesheet

Users can now personalize their timesheet and web expense statements with a new feature for configuring information columns.

This new function allows you to add and remove columns, but it also allows you to determine the order in which the columns are displayed. You have to select a piece of information and drag it to the correct position to change the order.

In addition, the new interface also allows you to customize the column "Title" labels. In short, now the local and Web interfaces can share the same management vocabulary!

Finally, the general visual of the interface has been standardized according to the new visual standard for Progident web portals and interfaces.



It is possible to manage more than one supplier payment batch (preliminary list) for different users or the same user, for example, payment batch management with separate bank accounts.

Version 11.2.3

Disbursement Journal

It is possible to make an individual disbursement for a supplier already present in a payment batch, but only if the invoice to be paid is not included in this payment batch (preliminary list) in progress. It is then possible to pay a new invoice or make an advance to the supplier's account. Note that the reverse is also possible; to add a supplier's invoice to a current preliminary list provided that it is not already included in a current disbursement.

Version 11.2.0

Mobile Timesheet

The display order of timesheet transactions in the mobile timesheet portal has been adjusted and now presents transactions in alphanumeric order of project codes.


The "Job class" field has enhanced the job profile for more configuration flexibility. The initialization logic of the "Job class" field in the timesheet has also been adjusted to exploit this possibility.

The initialization of the timesheet will be done first according to the class defined in the "Project profile" and, if none is specified there, according to the class defined in the "employment profile" and, if none is defined there, according to the class defined in the employee file.

  • A visual indicator indicates whether a group is in use (displayed in black) or not used (displayed in blue) on the "Accounting group" tab to quickly detect unused groups to remove them from the list and thus simplify your configuration.
  • The calculation of the available operating credit is limited to $0.
  • The forecast cash, at the level of the use of the forecast difference, always uses the absolute value.
  • The "Financial ratios" pane of the dashboard is delivered with references to classic ratios linked to standard accounting groups to give an example of a possible definition.

  • The user guide reflects the latest improvements.

Version 10.76.0

The "Initialize timesheets/expense reports" buttons have been added to the "Week" view in the mobile web interface of timesheets and expense reports. Therefore, it's possible to take advantage of the predefined templates per user.

This choice will not be available for a user configured to "Personal" at the level of their responsibility.

Version 10.33.0

Accounting Distribution

The accounting distribution that was previously intended only to manage payroll entries has been restructured and now applies to all Progident/Finance transactions.

Version 10.32.0

Charter of accounts

Restructuring was carried out at the level of the accounting charter to simplify the management of the accounts. Thus, the entire account management is defined in the same place, that is to say, in the accounting charter. The "Master" type of the charter of accounts has also been separated from the notion of the type of account. Thus, the "Master" field has been added to the charter, and the possible choices are "Yes" or "No". The definition of controlling accounts, which was previously on the "General ledger" tab of the company settings, has been moved directly to the accounting charter. Thus, in the "Type" field, several types of accounts have been added, more specifically, all control accounts. In addition to the current types, D-Start stock, F-End stock, and I-Inter-company, here are the new types: R-Regular, B-Unallocated profit, C-Current profit, A-Inter-company Advance to E-Inter-company - Due to N-Account payable G-Receivable account H-Payable deduction J-Receivable deduction K-Payable tax L-Receivable tax M-Bank S-Payment discount-Sale T-Payment discount-Purchase V-Variation on TC - Gain/Loss. In addition, the "Bank account" menu from the master data has also been moved to the account chart. So when the account type is set to "Bank", a "Bank" tab appears and presents all the same information that was on the banks menu.

Version 10.29.0

Payroll Bank

It is now possible to update the banks of hours employed based on a percentage increase.

Expense Statement

For more efficient expense statement management for the CCQ, the sector, context, and level are now initialized according to the job profile so that the rate can be initialized by the rate configurator of the statements of employment. Thus, it is possible to create a greater variety of configurators using the expense report rate configurator.

Version 10.20.0

Auxiliaries (Client, Supplier)

The addition of the selection criterion "Customer category" or "Supplier category" to the reports of client and supplier transactions offers the possibility of analyzing the transactions per category of client or supplier.

The management of authorized signatories has enhanced support for supplier EDI payments. Thus, it is possible to choose between one or more mandatory signatories thanks to a new management parameter and the possibility of defining the maximum authorized amounts.

Version 10.18.0

Financial Statements

The printing of the consolidated financial statements (more than one company) now considers the percentage of control defined in the “Inter-company links” of the companies selected for the report. The figures of the other companies will thus be multiplied by the percentage specified in the parameter.

Version 10.16.0


A new "Calculation of leave" parameter has been added to the transaction code record. This parameter makes it possible to define whether a leave allowance must be calculated on the timesheet and, if so, it allows to determine if the calculation is interactive or deferred in the case where the calendar is fortnightly and that one wishes to take the first period into account.

Version 10.13.0

Supplier Cheque

When the inter-company field, which can be found in the company parameters on the "Transaction" tab, is set to "YES", a new "Company of the bill" field is available in the management parameters on the supplier tab. The possible choices are "Yes" or "No" and they allow the "Company" column to be printed or not on the stubs of supplier checks.

Version 10.10.0


A new 'Stopwatch' option has been added to the timesheets. This option allows precise entry of the hourly intervals that an employee worked for each timesheet. It will be possible to enter a start and end time. When an end time is assigned, the duration will be calculated, which will be added to the appropriate time of day field on the timesheet. Each day of the same timesheet may have several stopwatches.

Version 10.6.0
