We’re trying to start this year off right and have made every effort to squash bugs and implement highly requested features! You may have noticed my recent posts on Facebook as an effort to help keep everyone informed about various features that are implemented. The updates I post will span across various products and will hopefully help open up our communication with our partners.
If we’re not already Facebook friends, feel free to add me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Now let’s talk about some of the recent features enhancements that have been implemented already inside of Shockey Monkey.
Billable Time Module
This module has been around for quite some time however it needed a refresher to be compatible with our new Android & iPhone apps. As you will see in the image below, we’ve implemented a more elaborate UI which allows you to easily select the date & time. The calculations happen a little differently on the back-end which was the main reason for the change. This will allow the mobile apps to tie in seamlessly with the data structure!
Improved Company & Contact Management
The next area that yielded quite a few partner requests were features that focused on client management. Here are a few that have already been implemented:
We had complaints that when a contact had been disabled, there was no visual way to tell that it was actually disabled. The only way was to open the contact and the [disabled] tab would say [enable]. So we’ve implemented this visual adjustment.
I’m sure you’ve never had a user who has forgotten their password or has had their password compromised. We’ll in case you come across this issue, we’ve implemented a button to make the password change a little easier. Simply click the [Generate Password] and a new 6 digit random password will be created.
Note: We’ve also removed the questionable characters from random passwords (I, I, L, l, 0, o, 1) to help prevent confusion.
Last on the list for today, another highly requested feature was to flag or designate a company’s payment method to something other than credit. We have now added the ability for you to choose cash & check as additional payment methods.
