    If you use Sage 300 to manage multiple companies, you can assign a unique color to each company to make it easier to see which company’s information you are viewing and avoid data entry errors.
    Previously, company colors appeared only in classic screens. Now they also appear in web screens, at the top of the Sage 300cloud home page and screens.

    Note: This feature is available only in programs created using the Sage 300 Software Development Kit (SDK).
