22 Aug 2017 - Importing bank statements now accepts date fields with a 2 digit year. eg.21/12/16

02 Aug 2017 - Added a purchase order field to invoices

27 Jul 2017 -  When uploading and then importing bank statements, entering the general ledger codes for each transaction was not functioning as expected. This is not fixed.

19 Jul 2017 - We have done some work on invoices.

      1. Added an "attention To" field so that invoices can be directed to a specific person or department.
      2. Some internal fixes to the logo placements on invoices.
      3. The quantity field for invoice items is now a 2 place decimal field, e.1.25 previously it was only whole numbers.

We have also added a "please wait" window before the dashboard is displayed. We found that when we were checking the integrity of your data, a lag could be experienced, especially when large quantity of data needs to be checked. It might have only been a second or two, but now you know the program is operating properly.
