November Release: 7 Updates to Simplify Your Day-to-Day

Product Update | 3 minute read

Author: Jeremy Chuang

As a former engineer, Jeremy knows that many people do not understand how the beautiful minds of geeks are functioning. So he jumped to the marketing side and became the medium to help ordinary people understand the beauty of technology. Outside the office, he loves playing video games with his family, sipping wine with his wife, or answering his son’s non-stop questions like Wikipedia.

Have you been keeping up with all the latest simPRO happenings? Read on to find out about our November updates, which include:

Advanced Timeline Notes

Communicate more efficiently with your customers! We’ve added an ability to share Timeline Notes from Quotes and Jobs with customers, plus an Alerts section to the Customer Portal to show when a new note has been shared. With this update, customers can also create notes in the Portal, which will also appear on the timeline of the corresponding project. In addition, we’ve incorporated trigger functionality which will send an email or SMS notification when new notes are added.

“Show Only Favourites” Option for Pre-Builds

You probably have thousands of pre-builds in your pre-builds table. We get it, business is booming and you have lots of jobs with various requirements. So how can you conveniently find your favourite pre-builds? In the 21.4.4 update, you can now easily view your favourite pre-builds in the pre-builds table. You even have the option to show favourite pre-builds only or include favourites by default.

Add a Site to Delivery Label Forms

When you are using the Delivery Label PDF form for jobs and quotes, you can now add a site address. This may seem like a small update but, we’re sure you’ll be impressed with the time-saving flow-on effects it has. This simple update also gives you another search option besides jobs and quotes, and allows you to establish a job history based on the site.

Send Customers Estimates or Quotes

We understand that it can be confusing when a customer receives an estimate that is incorrectly referred to as a quote. Now you can remove confusion by ensuring “Estimate” will be shown in the subject when you send an email to a customer from simPRO. Simply select the “Show as Estimate” checkbox and this change will be implemented. In addition, all the quote fields in the email template will read as “Estimate” when this option is selected.

Bulk Import Site Contacts

Tired of creating and updating site contacts one by one? Say goodbye to this time consuming process with new capability to import site contacts in bulk! Add as many site contacts per site as you need, with the click of a button.

Customise Contractor Job and Invoice Emails

You can now customise your email template for contractor jobs and contractor invoices separately. Simple and convenient!

Weather Widget

simPRO now remembers the location you set for the weather widget! You’ll get more accurate weather forecasts even when you clear your cache or log onto another computer.
