If you’re using Sage ERP MAS 200 v4.4 with Product Update 5 and have been receiving “Tasks are still active” messages when exiting out of one workstation – despite not having any tasks active on THAT workstation – read on.
One of my 90 Minds Consulting Group colleagues has noticed that on MAS 200 systems where workstations are named very similarly (ie- Client1, Client2, Client3) that this bug may occur which falsely claims that you have tasks open on one workstation.
Of you answer “ok” to close the tasks you may find that tasks on other MAS 200 workstations are closed as well.
Todd points out in his video that users of the Applianz remote hosting product could be especially vulnerable to this issue since Applianz names each workstation simiarly.
Since this can be a little tricky to figure out — Todd pulled together a quick demonstration of what he’s found.
Watch this video toward the end. When he exits the workstation on the left it also closes out a task on the workstation to his right.
