Release 3.12 – Change log

A phenomenal new release is here to bring contracting business management to the next level. This is a summary of the changes:

1. Email delivery and tracking: We’ve enhanced the technology behind our email infrastructure and now you will be able to verify if a customer opens a proposal email without them clicking the link. This enhanced technology also includes:

Knowify | Bidding | Screenshot of Contacts Jobs providing additional information on the proposal status

– The emails you send via Knowify will be stored in the job logs section. Now, no matter who’s sending the email, the whole team will be in the know.

– You will receive an email notification when we believe the recipient of the email has not opened the emailed in the last 24 hours. That way you can easily follow up with them to make sure they got the message.

– As a consequence of these changes, we’ve reduced the maximum size of email attachments to 9Mb to improve deliverability rates. Recipient’s email applications have been gradually getting more reluctant to accept emails with large attachments so this new policy will meet the industry’s best practices.

2. Document management: Based on your feedback, we’ve improved the Job Documents section of Knowify to include the following:

– New grid view where you can see photo thumbnails. We will include pdf thumbnails in our upcoming release.

– Easier experience around dragging and dropping files. Now you can drop the file anywhere on the screen!

– We are also simplifying the experience around ‘Share with mobile’ and ‘Share with customer’ documents.

3. New interface in Manage Contract Jobs: Over the next few months we will be refreshing the look and feel of our interface. We’ve started with an update of our Manage Contract Jobs section, simplifying the display and leaving room for ’email tracking’ information.

4. QuickBooks Online sync improvements:

– Ability to determine which jobs sync.

– Simplified workflow to sync clients and jobs along with new invoices.

– We’ve discontinued defaults for AR and AP given that they are being disregarded by QuickBooks.

– Smart matching of new clients, vendors and items with existing customers, vendors and items in QuickBooks.

5. Other relevant improvements:

– Simplified workflow to close jobs when they are paid in full.

– Full release of the ability to edit bills in all subscriptions.

– Enhanced ‘Last Check Ins’ with visual information to see distance between check in and project location.
