Sage 200 Tips – User Preferences

Sage 200 Preferences

Sage 200 is a user-friendly Accounts system which continues to improve with each version release. It is easier now to navigate the menus, search and enter accounts and transactions and get the information you need, than it ever has been before.

One of the key focuses for Sage 200 is the user experience; ensuring that users feel comfortable whilst traversing the system and that they are not hindered in any way whilst performing their daily duties. There is a section devoted to configuring the user experience, but many users are unaware of it.


Sage 200 Preferences

Located in the top-right corner of your Sage 200 is a ‘Cog’ symbol, which when selected will present you with a list.

Sage 200 User Preferences


Selecting Preferences from this list will open a form which can be used to change some of the preferences for you as a Sage 200 user.

Sage 200 Preferences – Theme

There are three themes to choose from within Sage 200; Dark, Light and White.

Sage 200 User Preferences


I find the Dark theme to be easier on my eyes so this is the theme I use! Once selected, you will need to close and re-open Sage 200 for the changes to take effect.


Sage 200 Preferences – Desktop List Row Spacing

This refers to the spacing between the rows within List Views located throughout Sage 200 and there are three options to choose from; Narrow, Normal and Wide.

Sage 200 User Preferences

I keep this set to the default ‘Normal’ spacing for myself, however I do know of users that prefer the Wide spacing. Once changed this will take immediate effect.


Sage 200 Preferences – Disable Notifications

Within Sage 200 there is a useful notification service which provides you with a confirmation for each action that you take.

Sage 200 User Preferences

This can be useful for new users, however it can become an annoyance once you have become familiar with system and you may wish to turn this service off by ticking the ‘Disable Notifications’ box in your Preferences.

Any of the changes that you make to the Preferences are specific to only your User account and will be remembered for each time you log into Sage.
