Clients eh? Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em. Can't even leave threatening chalk scrawls on the pavement outside their house. Apparently. But what you can now do is automate the process of gently reminding them that invoices are due or overdue.
There's so much new in this release that, in the interests of newsletter brevity, we've created a little guide to using New Invoice, Reminder and Thank You emails. You can get the full details there, but in brief, you can now:
If you already use recurring invoices, there are some slight changes to existing functionality to be aware of. Specifically, you now have to mark a recurring profile as Active before any generated invoices will be sent.
A handy time saving feature within FreeAgent is the auto-guess and explain feature for uploaded statements, but occasionally this is a little, how shall we put it, over zealous. Sometimes transactions are explained incorrectly which can be even more hassle to fix. Not ideal.
You can now choose to not auto-explain any transactions when you upload a statement. Simply select the checkbox below the Upload Statement input and FreeAgent will not guess any of the uploaded transactions.
We've redesigned the accounting engine in FreeAgent based on the last two years of learning and understanding how to do robust, realtime accounting. As a result, many of the common actions requiring accounting calculations (which is most of them) are significantly faster than before.
Users with a lot of data (especially invoice data) and who make a lot of updates to that data, will see the most improvement. But we've also used the opportunity to lay the groundwork for future flexibility in the accounting engine, so it'll be easier for us to add oft-requested capabilities like multi-currency accounting and customisable charts of accounts.
Just now though:
For never anything can be amiss, When simpleness and duty tender it...
Until next time,
