2018.1 Update for Sage 50: In November Sage released an update to Sage 50 2018. All users with a current subscription or Business Care Plan should be automatically notified when it is ready to be installed. If you don’t want to wait for it you can go to the Services menu and choose Check For Updates. All new features in this update only apply to Sage 50c users, in other words, those with a subscription license, not a traditional license.

New feature in 2018.1 are:
- Sage Bank Feeds – allows you to easily and securely establish an online connection with your bank to download activity from your bank into the Account Reconciliation window in Sage 50. This provides an automated alternative to manually downloading an .OFX or .QFX file from your bank and importing it into the account reconciliation window. Like the manual import process, bank feeds simplify the process of matching up the transactions in Sage 50 with the transactions from your bank and and ensuring that all transactions on your bank statement are accounted for in Sage 50.
- Sage Dashboard and Office 365 enhancements – Sage Dashboard is a new app that makes graphs and charts for Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, and Revenues/Expenses available in Office 365 so you can view the dashboard anywhere you have internet access (requires both Sage50C and Microsoft Office 365).
- Cloud & Mobile Navigation Dashboard – Sage 50 now includes a new Cloud & Mobility navigation that provides access MS-Office 365, Sage Drive, and Sage One integration.
