Accounts Receivable

Payment Method - Credit Card

 

The Enter/Edit Credit Card Form has been updated as follows:

Card Holder's Name MUST be what is embossed/printed on the Credit Card itself,

Only alphabetic characters are permitted (and so in many cases the existing entry will need to be modified)

Therefore, no numbers and/or punctuation marks are permitted (e.g., "2", "5", ",", ".", "-")

 

 

Accounts Receivable  

Payment Method - Bank Account

The Enter/Edit Bank Account Form has been updated as follows:

Account Holder's Name MUST be what is shown on the Bank Statement itself, but only alphabetic characters are permitted (and so in many cases the existing entry will need to be modified)

Therefore, no numbers and/or punctuation marks are permitted (e.g., "2", "5", ",", ".", "-")

Accounts Receivable

States

There is a new States Maintenance Form which is installed pre-populated, but new records may be added.

It will be used in conjunction with the upcoming Credit Card Surcharge feature currently Under Development.

Proposal

A new Internal Notes   Press (F9) for timestamped entry field has been added to the Proposal Form.

Job Costing

Job Status

The Job Status of a Job Costing entry is initially assigned when it is created, and then periodically updated as that Job progresses toward completion.

Job Costing

Item List sub-tab

Inventory tab

The revised Item List sub-tab on the Inventory Tab of the Job Costing Form provides many capabilities (e.g., maintain a parts list and print it as needed, Order news parts, reserve parts for this Job, identify the parts that were "used").
