Searching for data and saving it in Notes

The hardest part of managing data is finding it, and then saving it in a safe place so you can go and get it when you need it.

The SAGE 50c accounting system is internationally recognised as a safe and reliable method of processing accounting transactions and from them producing reports that help entrepreneurs run their businesses successfully.

The @spire add-on for SAGE 50 provides an excellent way to do such that.

Searching for information


To see the range of searches available to you, select the Search and Notes main menu option.

You can search specifically for information where you know the related area which is most likely to hold the information you’re looking for e.g. about a Customer, Product, Prospect or Quotation.

Alternatively you can search for specific information within an area e.g. by delivery address, by telephone number or by a general Global type search for information if you’re unsure of its source.

The system also allows you to select Notes into 2 categories, reflecting their level of importance.

The system allows you to record high importance notes as ‘Standing’ which are shown in red in the relevant page.

Less important and occasional notes are shown in blue and are known as Advisory.

All Notes can be amended or deleted.

Notes as Reminders


Any note can be designated as a Reminder event which will require you to record the date of the reminder, the person responsible for delivering any future action and what that future action should be.

The person given the responsibility for performing any future action will then receive an automated notification of that future date and details of his responsibility.

This is a major feature of the system.
