Features describe the actions you want to perform in Sage 200. For example, the Purchase Ledger feature Enter New Supplier Account, describes the action of adding a supplier account within Sage 200.

When Sage 200 is installed, features are organised into feature groups which match the modules. For example, there is a group for Sales Ledger, a group for Cash Book, and there are also groups for Workspaces and Workspace Actions.

Features normally have targets such as reports or data entry forms. For example, the feature Enter New Supplier Account has a data entry form as a targetA target is the action associated with a feature. Each feature must have a target in order to do something. For example, a target could be to open a form (window), produce a report, run any OS Invocable (any application or process you can access through the Run option in the Microsoft Windows Start menu), open a workspace (an area on your desktop which can contain several panels of information from Sage 200 modules), or open a content part (an area of a workspace). All features installed with Sage 200 and with any add-on packages have targets added automatically.. This means when you select the Enter New Supplier Account feature within Sage 200, a data entry form opens for you to enter the supplier details.

Features installed with Sage 200 (and those installed with any add-onThird party software that links into the Sage 200 suite. packages) will have targets added automatically. You can add features manually, using the Features option. If you add features to the system manually, you will also need to add targets to these features manually.

Note: You cannot make any changes to Sage 200 features or features which are installed with add-on packages.
