✔️ We have updated the Work Structure section for projects in the web and mobile versions. It is now more intuitive, straightforward and less cluttered. This section displays the list of stages, milestones and tasks and helps you at a glance view the amount of work required to complete a project ensuring nothing is skipped.
Color of the checkbox next to the tasks indicates their stage. It matches to the color of the task stage on the Kanban board in the project:
By the way, check out our recent blog post to learn more on the work breakdown structure and its benefits for your business.
✔️ We've released complete and handy API documentation for developers. Now it is much easier to set up data exchange between Flowlu and your application or website.
✔️ We’ve added the ability to display favorite filters right on the opportunity board. To do this, simply create your filter with several conditions, e.g. the opportunities received from email over a certain period of time. Next, mark this filter as your favorite. It will be displayed on the opportunity board with an indicator that shows how many opportunities on this funnel fit the specified parameters.
✔️ There is a new type of custom field available — decimal number. Utilize it to capture more context about your clients, opportunities or projects.
✔️ We’ve made some slight changes to opportunity card appearance on the Kanban board. The card now displays the start and end dates of an opportunity as well as information about whether there are any activities planned or missed.
✔️ The title, or honorific, specified in the client record, for example, “Mr. John Smith”, can now be automatically placed using new variable when sending invoices or estimates.
✔️ A few users reached out to let us know that the logo in the signature does not show up when sending an email from inside Flowlu. We’re happy to report that this is fixed now!
P.S. We continue to gather your use cases of automation in the opportunities. Your feedback is highly appreciated and will impact the further development of this functionality. Looking forward to your helpful comments and suggestions 😊Read More
Due to the popular demand, we’ve finally added the CSV-import option to the “Money” section. Say goodbye to manually entering the financial data, and save yourself some time. Now you can quickly and easily upload payments, expenses and transfers to manage your money in one single place. You can find a step-by-step instruction in our Knowledge Base.
🔸 In projects, you can now indicate a contact alongside a company when choosing a client. It means that you no longer have to create a separate custom field to display the contact person for that organization.
🔸 Several users have already noticed that the main tab of the project record has also changed, in particular, the section with the stages and milestones. With the yellow triangle sign, the teammate immediately sees if the closed stage has unchecked milestones. If the current stage is colored blue, it contains uncompleted milestones. When all project milestones are accomplished, the progress bar will turn turquoise.
🔸 If you manage finances for the projects, the Main tab may look rather cluttered. We decided to let you choose whether you want to display finances on the main page or only in the “Finance” section. All you need to do is go to the System Settings > Projects and check (or uncheck) the appropriate option.
🔸 When you create a customer from an opportunity or a project, you can now immediately identify the assignee. As a result, your teammates with the “Employee” access level to the CRM module will always be able to enter the information to the records of their clients.
🔸 You can now display the “Last comment” column in the Invoices to discover the latest information in a few seconds without going into each invoice separately.
🔸 In the settings of the email account in the “Folder Preferences” section, you can now determine in which folder the deleted messages should be moved.
🔸 We've also made some improvements to the invoice custom templates. You can now choose to include the currency symbol alongside the amount instead of the currency code.
🔸 In the mobile app, the project record and the list of projects have also been improved and redesigned. Now they’re more intuitive and provide faster access to all of the information that matter the most to you.
That’s not all ... Stay tuned for more news as one of the most requested features is just around the corner 🎁Read More
Nowadays, the teams around the world are transforming the way they collaborate and work together. We decided to support companies in adapting to the new, more agile work environment and released a fresh update for our mobile app. It is now faster and more stable on your phone, and also has new capabilities, which will greatly facilitate working remotely or with limited computer access. Here’s a list of the notable improvements:
The most requested, the financial module is finally available in your mobile app! Now you can view your money, invoices and estimates on the go and always be aware of your business financial performance.
With the new invoice/estimate record, you can access all the necessary data, attach a file or leave a comment to a teammate in a few seconds. The payment/expense record now displays information about the payer/payee and the date of payment, category, as well as a list of transactions to this document.
Now you can also manage your emails directly from Flowlu mobile app. Promptly respond to your customers and solve urgent matters with your team members!
Due to the popular demand, we’ve added Agile Module to the mobile app. You can now access backlog and track tasks in real-time from anywhere in the world.
We’ve also made some small changes to your overall mobile experience. The filters are now available almost in all sections of your mobile app. Plus, when you need to edit or delete a record in the list of contacts/organizations, simply swipe it to the left.
The new functionality is currently available in beta. Our dev team will be adding even more great features to the mobile app, so stay tuned!
We continued to enhance the Email module by shipping new useful features. If the email does not require any further action such as to reply, forward, etc., you can now mark it as completed. Therefore, it will not be displayed in the 'Planned' section in the activity feed of the opportunity/contact which lets you focus on the things that matter most.
In account settings, you can now assign folders for sent and completed emails. Also, you can now move emails to any folder you need directly from its record.
🔹 You can now attach a file to the product/service record to add an image or any documentation to your product.
🔹 We've made some changes to the Notification Feed interface and it is now clearer which notifications you are viewing — All or Only Important ;)Read More
Throughout the month of June we've been gathering user feedback on our recent product update and shipping some helpful improvements to these new features and more. Read on below for our latest changes from last month.
🔸 When connecting multiple mailboxes, you might’ve felt inundated with all these notifications from your email accounts. From now on, these notifications won't clutter your feed anymore — you can choose the email account you wish to receive notifications on new emails from.
🔸 You’re now able to create emails directly from a project or task. Each related message will be displayed in the activity feed of the appropriate record.
🔸 Email module’s administrators can now edit and delete email templates.
🔸 Now each email has comments, so you can quickly leave a note or solve any issue with your teammate within a few seconds.
🔸 You can now specify multiple email addresses for a single contact or company and keep all your emails in one record.
🔸 We’ve added distribution queue for opportunities that are automatically created from new emails. All you need to do is to select your team members — the opportunities will be automatically assigned to them one by one when you receive an email from a new sender.
🔸 We’ve received some great feedback regarding our new activity feed in the opportunities, so we have added it to the contact/organization record as well. It's greatly simplified the process of viewing the current and overdue tasks and events, as well as planning new ones.
🔸 Opportunity collaborators with the "Employee" permission are now able to filter the opportunities by an assignee.
🔸 The name of the PDF file is now generated from the name of the invoice. Thus, when downloading an invoice you can always find it on your device within a few seconds.
🔸 We’ve added "Code" column to the list of products and services which provides you with better search capabilities within products.Read More
