Hello PlanGuru users! We are pleased to announce the release of maintenance update 188.8.131.52. A full list of changes and fixes can be found below:
PlanGuru display – items appearing cut off or “scrunched up”: On more recent operating systems PlanGuru would display incorrectly. The caused the program to cut off data, and menus to not appear correctly. In some cases this caused the program to be almost unusable. This was due to newer machines defaulting to a 125% resolution level. The program has been changed so that it can accommodate for this resolution and should display without an issue now.
Payroll Taxes – Not calculating if tax limit was reached in first month: With the addition of the new payroll feature, some users encountered an issue. If they had a salary that was set up in such a way that it went over the limit on one of their payroll taxes in the first month of the projection, it would not calculate it for that month. This would throw off payroll taxes for the first month. This has been corrected so that the proper amount will display in the payroll tax section for that first month.
Payroll Taxes – Tax parameters keep being forgotten: Some users encountered a rare issue where when they added state taxes and then closed out of the payroll tax menu, they taxes would be forgotten. This would cause certain calculation to lock up until the payroll tax parameters were re-entered.
Taxes Based on Net Income – Calculation does not update automatically: In older versions of PlanGuru line items using the “Taxes Based on Net Income” the calculation would not update automatically. You would have to save the analysis, and then go back in to see any changes. Now this should update automatically.
Non-Financial Section – Compute amounts for periods using actuals: A new feature for PlanGuru V6, the formula projection method in the non-financial section can now calculate results for periods that are using actual results. This is something customers had been asking for as they don’t want to manually enter actual results for those periods. Now the formula will do the math based on actuals, and calculate the proper result for the user.
