Changing Company Colours

Home | News & Updates | Sage Product Tip Of The Week | Changing Company Colours

How can you differentiate companies in your Sage 200? Easy, just colour-code each company!

While your team is focusing on the job at hand, you want to ensure that the job execution goes as smoothly as possible.

An easy way to help is to assign each company a specific colour that can be used as a guide in the busy day-to-day routine.

Watch the video or read through the instructions to see how you can change each customer’s colour in Sage 200.

In Sage 200, when you are doing your processing, sometimes you worry – are you using the right data set?

If you have multiple companies, and you are going into Sage to do a journal, you might wonder if you are in the correct company.

There are easier ways how to make visual prompts on the screen that would indicate that you are in the right company.

Go into the ‘Admin tool’ -> ‘Companies’ -> ‘Properties’.

In the ‘Properties’ log, at the bottom of the screen, you have the option to set a company colour or show a company name.

What this will do, is for each company you open in Sage 200 you will be given a visual prompt of colour or name depending on which one you select.

So we are going to select both, company colour and name, for each form.

Once you have selected it, press ‘Configure’.

Tick both of the options on this screen and then move to choose the colour tone for the company in question.

Next, check the preview that pops on the screen and then click ‘OK’ if you are happy with it.

Then reopen your Sage 200, go to the journal and the company you selected for this will appear with the company’s name and your chosen colour.

Don’t forget that you can select a different colour for each of the companies you have!
