Long & Windy Road to Imperial COE Offices

Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been out of the office a lot. Well, I’ve had the awesome pleasure of getting to be part of the Imperial County Office of Education (ICOE) implementation with Carole Williams, Project Manager, at Escape Technology leading the way. It’s a long road to get the offices of ICOE and it tends to be windy too, but so worth it once you’re there! A beautiful office and a great team of people, too!

During these past few months, I’ve met some amazing people who left a lasting impression on me. I’m looking forward to seeing them again at the Beyond Escape User Conference this coming October here in Sacramento.  Get registered today!

Tehama CDE at Escape for a Working Session

In late June, Tehama CDE paid us a visit at our headquarters for a hands-on working session on HRA workflow setup. When Lourie Larcade, Business Services Support Specialist, saw one of our blogs about another customer who had come to our offices for training, she thought it was just what they needed! So, she contacted us about the details. Their day at Escape was successful and they are now considering adding other HRA’s to their Online 5 system.

Release Review v18.02 Follow-up

Last week's Release Review for v18.02 was well-attended - 120 Escape users connected to hear and see the fantastic new features in the release. I love SO many of the new enhancement’s in the v18.02 software release! Of course, everyone is going to love paying invoices by line item! How sweet is that?! The best part about CR 13302 is that you can pay by line item or you can continue to enter payments just like you’ve always done. I call it the best of both worlds!

I’m sure everyone is going to miss copying calendars every year, right? No you’re not! I was SUPER excited about CR 17454 – Mass copy Calendars! Yes, you heard me right! We’ve added a new field in the Calendars activity to allow them to be rolled forward. Then in the Fiscal Year Status record, there’s a NEW task to Roll Forward Calendars! Don’t forget that you’ll still need to review the calendars for any out of balance days before starting up the new year!
