A long over-looked piece of the core Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate products are the Macros. Macros are available in all the core accounting modules except Inventory, Purchasing and Service Management.
Macros can be used to automate a series of tasks. Here are just a few examples:

- Importing Accounts Payable or Accounts Receivable Invoices
- Importing Direct Costs into Job Cost
Macros can be run On-Demand (when you choose) or by scheduling them to run at a specified time using Microsoft Scheduler.
