February 2022 Release Notes

The 2022.1 Release of Kahua will be deployed to our Production environments on February 5, 2022.  A preview of this functionality can be accessed at https://earlyaccesslaunch.kahua.com/ beginning on January 23, 2022.  Please click here for more information on the Early Access program.  


In addition to various performance improvements, user interface updates and error corrections, this release will also include:


Windows & Browser


APPROVALS – DOCUSIGN APPROVAL TASKS SUPPORT NON-USER CONTACTS

Kahua’s DocuSign integration with Kahua Approvals now fully supports non-user Kahua Contacts for DocuSign approval process.

 

NOTE: DocuSign integrations via Kahua Workflow still require full Kahua users. A basic account is all that is required to include these in DocuSign based workflow.

 

APPROVALS – SHARED TASK LIST NOT SUPPORTED

Shared task lists are a common way to pick up tasks for other people. Due to per user document and project limits, Approval Tasks don’t allow other users to perform the task. We have temporarily removed the ability for shared Approval Tasks to be acted upon by anyone other than the original recipient.  Approval tasks can be viewed in a shared task list, but they are read only.

 

We understand this is a desired capability. We are reviewing how to fully support shared approval tasks in the system while maintaining the integrity of the financial limits that have been established.


Kahua Provided Extensions


To continuously improve our best-in-class Kahua provided extensions, we will be updating offerings to include the following features:


Kahua for General Contractors, Kahua for Owners, and Kahua for Program Managers


EXPENSE CONTRACT AND CHANGE ORDER – IMPROVED RULES FOR DELETING

We’ve updated how Kahua checks for important referential integrity when deleting Contracts and Change Orders, as well as when deleting Contract Items and Change Order items. This ensures when a document or items is required for another business process, such as being used on a pay request, it can’t be deleted until the other business process document is deleted.

 

FUNDING CONTRACT – UPDATE WITH LATEST EXPENSE CONTRACT FUNCTIONALITY

We continue to enhance the Funding Contract with equivalent functionality from Expense Contracts. Enhancements include:

  • Funding SOV Breakdown: Support for Portable View (PV), Export SOV items to and Import SOV items from Excel™, Item Category and SOV Item Category available on SOV items
  • Improve rules for deleting Funding Contracts, Funding Contract Items, Funding Change Orders and Funding Change Order items.

 

(EXPENSE) PAY REQUEST ENHANCEMENTS – REFRESH FROM SOV, ADD NEW CHANGE ORDERS

We continue to enhance the Pay Requests application. We now support directly adding change orders to the latest pay request for a given contract instead of only permitting this at the time of creation.

 

For SOV-based Expense Contracts, we added a Refresh from SOV button on the Pay Request. This button pulls the latest edits to the contract’s SOV breakdown document to the Pay Request. NOTE: for SOV-based contracts, Change Orders are added to the SOV Breakdown document in preparation for pay request inclusion.

 

Add Change Order on the SOV Breakdown after creating the Pay Request: 

 

SOV-based Pay Request – Created before updating the SOV Breakdown: 

 

SOV-Based Pay Request – Refresh from SOV now includes Change Order 

 

For non-SOV based contracts, we’ve added a Select Change Orders button on the Pay Request. This button opens the change order selection button, adding more Change Orders to the most recent pay request.

 

Non-SOV Pay Request – Select Change Order: 

 

Select Change Orders: 

 

Non-SOV Pay Request – Change Order Added:
