Version 2.7 is now available for download. This version is available as a free update for all users with a valid annual maintenance plan. Go to the About window to see when your plan expires. If it hasn't expired yet, then you can use this new version. If it has expired and you decide to use it, then you need to renew your plan.
Now, let's see some of the new features and improvements from this version. You should also read the change log for a complete list of all the new features, improvements and bug fixes.
Introducing the sidebar
This version has a sidebar that lets you change the current view. It is enabled by default but you can hide it if you don't switch between views often. You can also change the current view from the toolbar by using the views drop-down box.
If you used an older version, the view buttons from the toolbar were replaced by the drop-down box. We had to make this change because we plan to introduce more views in future versions and the sidebar allows us to do this easily. Adding more buttons to the toolbar isn't a practical solution.
Rounding time for each time entry
In previous versions, time rounding applied to the sum of all the time entries of a service item. Now, you can choose whether time is rounded for the sum of all the time entries or for each individual time entry.
Not many people round their time for billing like this but if you do, you'll notice this setting the next time you edit a time rounding rule.
Terms per client
Not everybody uses the same payment terms for all clients so we've made this a client setting. You can now specify payment terms at client level, not just at business level. This means that whenever you create an invoice for a client, it will use the terms of that client by default.
We've added three more columns to the Timesheet table: Invoice, Invoiced and Billable but only Billable is visible by default.
Less-used columns are hidden by default. For instance, the Timesheet table doesn't show the following columns by default: Invoiced, Invoice, Finish, Pause and Hours. If you need them, just right-click the table header and you can make them visible.
For some columns we calculate their totals. For instance, the Timesheet view displays totals for the Time and Hours columns. If a column is hidden, its total is no longer displayed at the bottom of the table.
We've also fixed the bug that hid the columns of a table.
I hope you'll enjoy this new version and that it will make you more productive.
