Version history




3.1.22 (16-nov-2017)

  • Context help: some navigation items now provide contextual quick access to a corresponding manual articles.
  • Few changes in the default navigation tree.
  • Performance improvements - program works much faster now.
  • Minor bug fixes.

3.1.21 (14-nov-2017)

  • New feature - Batch change in the Customer list.
  • Default invoice templates were re-designed a bit. Now the structure became much easier to understand, and all built-in invoice templates contain one detail report instead of two (previously, one detail report was used to display invoice rows with empty job, and second detail report was used to display invoice rows with non-empty job). Recommend to check new templates in the designer (copy one of predefined templates) - you will find them much cleaner.
  • Job - when 'Notes' field isn't cloned when creating new job on the base of previous one.
  • All lists - when Refresh button is pressed, the program persists selection and groups state.
  • Minor bug fixes.

3.1.20 (13-nov-2017)

  • All lists - when closed, the program will save selected row and group expansion status.
  • Dashboards module - now your dashboards will be added to the context of the corresponding entity types. Example: if dashboard is build on the base of translation jobs data, this dashboard will be added to the context of the Translation jobs command in the navigation tree, under QuickReports item. This new function allows to get access to your custom reports in the context of target object type, not only via Reports section. In future I will add more build-in QuickReports (Dashboards).
  • Analysis module depreciated. Since Dashboards module can solve all similar tasks in much more user-friendly way, I've decided to delete Analysis module.
  • Fixed a bug when it was impossible to create more than 2 e-mail accounts.
  • Fixes in data import from ver2.

3.1.16 (08-nov-2017)

  • Translation assignment - added 'Currency rate' field (automatically sets to the linked job currency rate, if currencies are the same)
  • Translation assignment list - added 'Change status' quick action
  • Translation assignment - possibility to specify time in the 'Deadline' field
  • Translation job - fixed 'Contractors' column, which was cloned during job copying, which may lead to incorrect data in this column
  • Appearance rules editor - added 'Priority' field, which allows to specify priority for overlapped rules
  • Dashboard - Earning chart wasn't automatically updated after creating new job
  • WIWO edit form - list of languages is loaded from ProZ.com database instead of internal list of languages
  • Default invoice templates - fixes in templates 2, 3 and 4 to include invoice subscription text at the bottom
  • Minor bug fixes (about 5 different error messages)

3.1.15 (07-nov-2017)

  • Improved 'Conditional formatting' feature. Now each list contains an 'Appearance rules' button, which allows to quickly edit built-in and create own appearance rules without need to open Model editor. This feature became much easier to use.
  • Fixes in ProZ.com connection procedure (few Plus subscribers experienced problems with unlocking full version).
  • Job list - added new view variant (job list with details, which displays contents of the selected job without need to open edit form).
  • Currency rates downloader - added new source - UK's HMRC.
  • Dashboard - Earnings chart - added labels.
  • Payment list - 'Invoices' column was empty - this is fixed now.
  • Customer editing form - added total to lists of jobs, invoices, projects, etc.
  • Job editing form - new field - 'Responsible person' (visible only for teams). Allow to select staff member who is responsible for the job. Later will be used to build reports.
  • Job editing form - new field - 'Post WIWO'. Check this box to automatically post WIWO entry when saving a job.
  • A number of bug fixes on the base of reports you've sent during last days.

3.1.12 and 3.1.13 (01-nov-2017)

  • Settings - impossible to save when base currency is not selected. Please, open Settings and confirm that you have base currency selected in the Application settings tab
  • Blue Board window - double click on url allows to open company page in your browser
  • A number of bug fixes linked with editing data in different forms. For example, when you had customer editing form opened, made any changes there, then switched to translation jobs list and created new job for this unsaved customer, you've got error. About 4 such bug fixes, so you must get much less such messages

  • New setting - ''Automatically send information about errors to BaccS developer'. This is set by default and eliminates need to send log file to me when any error occurs. Each message is about 1 Kb, and contains no any personal information. Error information is doubled in baccs.log file, so you can check that it is safe to send such information without worries about data security
  • Report - possibility to clone reports which are not predefined
  • Customer editing form - added second variant for small screens (to switch, use 'View variants' button on the ribbon). Once switched, next time this form will be used by default
