More in this update:

The new file management system is definitely the highlight of this month, but we've also worked on a few other things that will certainly help enhance your overall experience with Plutio:

1) Plutio Manual (onboarding series)

Whether you've been using Plutio for a while or you've just joined us, this new Plutio guide is a great way to explore all the powerful features and the amazing level of customisations Plutio offers.

2) Ability to pause a running timer:

Sometimes when tracking time you get a call or have to jump onto a different task very quickly, now instead of having to stop the timer completely you can easily pause it and resume tracking when you're ready.

3) Add "Set as default" to templates:

You can now set a template as "default", so when you create a new project, an invoice or a proposal the default template is pre-selected for you. The less you click the better, right?

4) Ability to duplicate templates:

No more workarounds to duplicate your templates. We've added a new "duplicate template" button that will instantly create a new copy of your template.

5) Enhanced notifications center:

You can now mark individual notifications as read/unread, search your notifications and show only the ones you've read or everything that is unread.  

6) New task following rules:

This feature is particularly useful if you're collaborating with others and want to ensure you never miss any notifications. From Settings > Tasks you can now set to be added as a follower to tasks by default whether they are created by you or others.

And so many more...

  • Group invoices by "Payment date".
  • Attach contracts to proposal template.
  • Ability to hide "quantity" and "amount" from item blocks.
  • Ability to assign a project to a signed proposal or a paid invoice.
