Select Company List Box Bug

This is probably a bug more than an idea request.

Since v2015 or v2016 onwards the Company Selection list box at logon does not show the last highlighted/selected company that a user logged into.

(In my case I have clients with 20,30 & 40+ companies)
If you have any more than 6 companies to access - the list does not show the last company logged onto.

Although it is selected in the list you still need to scroll all way through the list to find it
This issue was not present pre-v2015.

    This is not an idea, its a defect. The list knows the last company as it highlights it, its missing the key step of not jumping to that point in the list. As mentioned it has worked fine in previous versions. We will log this as an issue.

    I've tested on 2023 R2 and I am getting the same behaviour that you have described. It is highlighting the last logged in company but it is not visually shown unless you scroll down to it.

    I'd suggest relogging this idea. Sage 200 to automatically scroll the 'Select Company' screen to show the highlighted company when it is not the first 6 companies on the list.

    thanks for raising this - this is not an idea, this sounds like an issue so should be raised as a defect. I'll pass the details onto our customer services team who will replicate it, confirm it and liaise with your business partner
