Hello, friends! Hot on the heels of our successful rollout of estimates, Team Blinksale has been chugging away at even more new features and smoothing out the edges of our estimates functionality. In the wee hours of this fine Monday morning, we pushed a round of enhancements and bug fixes. Here are some of the more notable features & fixes from this morning as well as some from the past month:
- Tagging estimates. Estimates can now be tagged, just like invoices.
- Filtering estimates. The Estimates dashboard now has filtering controls including tag, date range, and status, just like the Invoices dashboard.
- Main Dashboard upgrade. The Dashboard tab now displays the latest invoices and estimates.
- Comments & history entries on estimates can now be deleted.
- Added password recovery to general login page. If any of you log in from the main Blinksale website, we’ve now got your back should you need password assistance.
- Restored OpenID login.
- Cross-link invoice with its originating estimate. Invoices converted from estimates now log a History item that links back to the originating estimate. Very handy.
Select bugs addressed in the last few weeks:
- Logo display issues in HTML emails. Some of you may have been seeing your logo KING-SIZED on your clients’ emails. They’re back down to regular, professional-sized.
- Changing invoice status to “open” now creates an “opened” item in the invoice history. As it should be.
- Deleting a line from estimates does not update the subtotal. That was a weird one. Fixed.
- Thank you template previews broken in Safari. Not critical, but annoying. Fixed.
- Filters clearing when navigating away from page. Now, when you set a filter on your estimates or invoices dashboard, it stays active for your whole session. Leave the page & come back — the filter is still in place.
We are always interested in your ideas and problems. There are now quite a few bugs and features in our queue that we would have never discovered on our own. Your insight is invaluable. If you have any ideas for how we can improve Blinksale, please do share them with us!
