In November 2022 AmpliFund is releasing changes to the payment request.
Some of the changes that you will see in this update are the result of customer feedback, so thank you, and keep it coming! Some changes that you will notice are as follows:
There will be a new field on expenses called Payment Status. The field options are New or Approved. When an expense is included in a payment request and that payment request is approved, the status will be updated automatically to approved. For any existing legacy data, the new or approved status will be automatically updated to the new payment statuses. As we continue to enhance the payment process, additional field options for the Payment Status are being considered.
This update will also change how category amounts are displayed. For every budget category, you will see everything that is grant funded, match, and the total in a table format instead of the summary vertical list that you see now. When looking at the budget category totals after this new feature launches, a new window will pop up for you to show what the breakdown is right down to the expense level.
Additionally, on the Expenses page, there will be a new column identifying the Payment Request name for expenses that are tied to a payment request.
One final record-keeping change you will notice is that the system will automatically generate a unique payment request name that you will be able to edit if you choose instead of you having to manually enter a unique name each time.
