Astral GoCardless

Version History

Current Version

23 November 2020

Version 1.4.16.0



New Functionality

Added Dataverse (CDS) integration, enabling integration with Dynamics 365 for Sales.

Added automatic import of mandates that are created outside of Astral GoCardless (e.g. via the GoCardless api or via the GoCardless portal), triggered when the Metadata specifies the Business Central Customer No.

The Business Central user can now create the mandate themselves if they know the sort code and account number, without the need for emailing a PayLink. A new Wizard has been added to simplify the process of chosing how the mandate should be created (manually or via a PayLink).

Issue Resolutions

There was an issue when importing mandates. A filtering issue when trying to display a list of potential companies to map against has been resolved.

Some payouts contain Payout Items that have a zero amount. These caused an issue when trying to transfer to the Payout Journal.

A "Mark All Entries As Processed" action was added to the Notifications list. If extensive use is made of the GoCardless portal, there will be many Notifications that will not be processed, as they relate to data that Astral GoCardless doe not know about. Some users found it time intensive to clear off all the entries.

Some Payouts cannot be transferred to a Cash Receipt Journal. For example, some Payouts have no Payout Items, and therefore no Payout Date. We added the ability to "Set As Posted", so the entry dissappears fro the Role Centre Tile.

Resolved a minor issue with the Application Setup Wizard which surfaced when Merchants weren't set up for International Payments with GoCardless.

Resolved an issue when importing missing mandates from the GoCardless Merchant account. If more than one missing mandate is found, it tried to use the same Mandate No. and raised an error.

The initial release including mandate creation, payment batch creation, refunds and subscriptions. It doesn't inlcude Instalment Schedules, but this will follow shortly.

It includes Success+, which is great for reducing failed Direct Debit charges and also includes Borderless Payments, which is why Astral 365 were so keen to build this extension.
