Although we've only released bug fix versions lately, we've also worked on adding new features. We're not ready to release a new official version yet but we have a beta version available for testing. Go to the download page to get it. See the changelog to learn what's new.
If no big surprises occur during the beta testing period, we'll release the official version in January. Here are some of the features for which we'd like your help to decide what to do.
The new version adds products as a new type of items that is meant to complement services. You can now use products to bill goods instead of using service items to bill both services and goods. This new feature creates two small problems. The first is that some users may want to convert existing service items to product items. The second is that existing invoice templates will not be able to display product items, they will have to be edited to include products. So, the first question is:
Q1: Have you used service items to record goods? If so, is it safe to assume that service items with no time entries are possible candidates for being converted to product items?
Q2: Did you add time to service items you used to record goods?
The timesheet filters can now be saved if you click the small cog icon. This feature is only available in the Timesheet view but we're not sure if it's useful for the other views as well.
Q3: Should we make it possible to save filters in the other views: Projects, Invoices, Payments? If so, what configurations of filters would you save?
View toolbar buttons
We replaced the four buttons that switched between views with a dropdown list to save toolbar space.
Q4: Do you find this solution intuitive?
If there is anything else you'd like to see fixed before the final release, please let us know.
Since Christmas is in two days and the new year is just around the corner, we'd like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very prosperous New Year!
