Web App


Created a Recycle Bin for all deleted Items and created the ability to restore deleted Items

We created a Recycle Bin for deleted Items. This includes any time you delete the following:

  • Customers

  • Properties

  • Tickets/Projects/Estimates

  • Items in Item Catalogs

  • Timesheets

  • Templates for Item Catalog

  • Service Packages

  • Users

The deleted Items will remain in the Recycle Bin unless you manually delete them from the Bin. This will allow you to restore deleted Items at any time with ease.

The Recycle Bin is located under System Setup in the left sidebar menu. You can click into it and choose what category you are looking for (Customers, Items in Item Catalog, etc) and then search for deleted Items, and restore them if you wish to do so.


Added Page Break in PDF printout from Job Summary

We have created another view that takes all Items from the Job Summary Report and breaks them out by workareas. There are page breaks in the Actual Items list and Labor list for each workarea.


Created a Remove from Schedule button for recurring tasks (Maintenance Contracts)

We added a Remove Schedule button in the scheduling popup for maintenance Contracts. If the user selects this action, this will remove ALL scheduled events for this Maintenance Contract.

We also added little trashcan icons on each task/event to clear the scheduled date of one individual task at a time.


Enhancements to the Calendar Event Popup

Split time and date fields

In the Calendar, when clicking on a Calendar Event, we added two features to the popup module. This only pertains to Calendar Events that are not all-day events.

Time is now split out into its own field.

Bulk edits to recurring task events

We added the functionality of doing bulk edits to recurring tasks. For instance, if you change the time or the assigned foreman of a recurring task event, it will now ask you if you want to update:

  • This one event

  • This event and all future events

  • All events

This only pertains to Calendar Events that belong to Recurring Tasks from a Maintenance Contract.

If a user attempts to "remove from schedule" a Calendar Event they will be given the following options:

  • Remove only this event

  • Remove this event and all future events

  • Remove all events


Resolved bug linking Cost Codes from Quickbooks

The Popup below was showing everything: Items, Inventory Items, etc. This Popup should only be showing Services of the Products ad Services section in QuickBooks Online, so we did some filtering and resolved this issue.


Make updates to Table Headers

Here are the updates that we made to the Table Headers:

1. Estimates

  • Removed the Division field and replaced it with the Estimated Final Price (total price of Estimate)

  • Removed the Estimator Column and replaced it with Estimate Pending/Lost Status

  • Added a column with a checkmark to indicate it has attachments. If no attachments, it simply will not show a checkmark

2. Projects

  • Removed Division column and replaced it with Final Price

  • Removed Estimator column and replaced it with status icon and text

  • Added column to show Scheduler's Display name

  • Added column with a checkmark to indicate it has attachments. If no attachments, it simply will not show a checkmark

3. Tickets

  • Replace the Completed column with the Ticket Status column

  • One status icon for each status contained in that ticket's tasks. If it has 5 tasks, and 3 different statuses among those 5 tasks, 3 status icons will be shown to represent each status.

  • Removed Divisions column and replaced it with Ticket Final Price

  • Removed Sold column

  • Added column to show Scheduler's Display name

  • Added column with a checkmark to indicate it has attachments. If no attachments, it simply will not show a checkmark

4. Maintenance

  • Removed the Status column and replaced it with a column that shows Pricing Type

  • Removed Division column and replaced it with Maintenance Contract Final Price

  • Added column to show Scheduler's Name

  • Added column with checkmark to indicate it has attachments. If no attachments, it simply will not show a checkmark.


Added Company name to the QuickBooks Online Customer Linking Popup

Previously on the QuickBooks Online Customer Linking Popup, if there wasn't a first name or last name and only a Company name, it wouldn't show anything in the Popup. We added the Company name. So now when you search a Company Name in the Linking Popup, it will be visible.


Removed the restriction to saving a new Property until the User edits a field

In the early days of building the program, we added the restriction that when a user is creating a new property for a customer, they were not allowed to save until they had made a change in at least one field. This was to ensure that they were reviewing the address and that it was correct. Since we have implemented the Google Maps address auto-complete, incorrect addresses or typos are extremely rare. So we have removed that restriction.


Resolved the issue with auto-scrolling back to the top when pasting text

Previously, we had an issue that when the User pastes text into the Customer Invoice/Proposal Description text, it auto scrolls to the top. That issue is now resolved.


Save button not activating when entering Workarea/Task notes

When the User was entering notes in the Instructions to Tech field, it didn't activate the Save button and didn't warn the User to Save before leaving.


Solved issue with Save button not graying out

When marking a Visit as Reviewed in a Project and then saving, the Save button was not graying out as it should.


Fixed the Time picker issue

Some Users were unable to select AM/PM on the time picker. When a User clicked on a Calendar Event to assign a new time and selected the time (hr/min) before selecting AM or PM, the AM/PM didn't respond. This issue is now resolved.


Selecting :00 as the minute on the time picker produced an error

This only happened in certain scenarios and has been resolved.


Optimized Projects for performance issues

Large projects that had a lot of workareas, visits, and items had some performance issues.

We did some restructuring in the backend to create some optimizations. We have increased performance and responsiveness by up to 10x in some scenarios.


Resolved issue with reconnecting to QuickBooks Online account

There was an error when reconnecting the QuickBooks account to an account before the refresh token had expired. The issue appeared only when the user disconnected from QuickBooks and tried to connect again. This issue has now been resolved.


Mobile App


Made adjustments to Calendar

We made some new adjustments to the Calendar in the mobile app. Here are the following updates:

  • Added a search bar at the top of the page. Search query includes Customer Name and Job Name.

  • Added a filter in the top right corner beside the search bar. This new filter will show filters for all the same parameters as in the Calendar sidebar: Division Group, Status, Foreman, and Salesperson (if the Consultations toggle is on).

  • Enhancements on the Calendar Event page include the following:

  1. Added quick icons to Call, SMS, Email, and Navigate

  2. Replaced Job Name in the header with Customer Name

  3. Added a tabbed view (Schedule and Info)

  4. Made Customer Name clickable and linked to Customer Profile

  5. Made Job Name/Number clickable and linked to the Job

  6. Made Property Name/Address clickable and linked to the Property

  7. Added a button to open the Job Details screen


Added swipe to refresh

We added swipe to refresh to the following screens:

  • Job Details

  • Items Summary

  • Workarea Estimated/Actual

  • Individual Item Entries Screen

  • Edit Item Screen


Made the Lunch Deduction checkbox larger


Added Item Catalog in the menu

We added an Item Catalog to the left sidebar menu that is searchable and filterable by tag and category.
