New Features

1) It is now possible for users to choose themes (colour schemes). An option has also been added to system settings to allow the selection of a default scheme for newly registered staff members.

2) GPS tracking capabilities. The location of users is taken and recorded at each logon from the mobile device. The tracking records are recorded in the staff member object and can be viewed using the staff form.

3) Pictures can now be uploaded against jobs and appointments and viewed in lightbox gallery in the desktop version. Pictures can also be uploaded directly from mobile devices against jobs and appointments. They can also be viewed in the mobile version. Multi-file upload is also possible in the desktop version.

4) Agent Schemes can now be created. Once an agent has schemes stored against it you are able to link those schemes to a particular property and, in turn, those schemes to a particular job. Agent schemes add another reference point and the ability to search for jobs and properties linked to a particular scheme. For example you could use this for Kier Scape list.

5) User Defined Documents can be created for properties, jobs, agents, staff and suppliers. User Defined Documents can then be called to perform mail merge or used to create one off letters inside the business object’s form. A copy of the merged document is also automatically added to the objects communication history.
