New Features | Accounts Payable and Accrual Reporting for Sales Tax Liability

Accounts Payable has arrived!

Updates with this release:

  • Expenses can now have a payee.

  • You can now specify an expense payee, category, and due date on the product editor.

  • When a quote is booked, expenses will be scheduled for the purchased products.
  • There is now a list of upcoming payments on the job’s Financials page (previously called “Income and Expenses”).
  • You can post and inline edit any upcoming payment directly on the job’s Financials page.

  • We’ve added the Financials page to address book profiles, allowing you to log expenses, record payment, or edit credit at the contact level with or without a job.

  • The Financials page has been made much more mobile friendly.
  • We added three new reports: A/P Ledger, A/P Aging, and A/R Aging.
  • The chart on the Reports homepage now includes expenses and has a cash flow line.

  • There is a new Accounts Payable widget on the dashboard so you can get a quick list of upcoming expenses.

  • The Sales Tax Liability Report now allows you to customize when revenue is recognized. In addition to the previous “upon receipt” cash-basis method supported before, you can select to have revenue recognized for tax purposes when the job is marked as completed, when the job enters fulfillment, on the event date, upon booking, or on the order’s “Sold At” date.
  • The Job Types and Lead Sources booking trend report now includes a new chart so you can compare your leads vs booked jobs in any given time period.

New Feature | Scheduled Emails

Email scheduling is here!

With this latest update, Táve now gives you the ability to schedule your emails to send at a later time and date. Maybe you’re a night owl who composes emails in the middle of the night or you want to send an email at the ideal time to make sure it’s read. Email scheduling now gives you the flexibility to have emails go out when you need them to go out.

It’s simple too! When composing a new email message there are now four options for when to send:

  • Immediately 
  • In 5 minutes – great if you want your message to not feel too much like a canned response that was sent immediately
  • At 8am – Sends at the start of the business day.
  • At a specific time – You set the date and time!

That’s it! Your message will be marked as ‘Scheduled’ awaiting the moment it’s set to send. You can hover over the schedule tag to see what time it’s scheduled for. You can also edit the message any time before it’s scheduled.

Dashboard Widget and Outbox

All of your scheduled emails will appear in the new dashboard widget so you can quickly see which emails are ready to go out and when.

Click the ‘View’ button to be taken to the email to change its content or scheduled time or click on the ‘All Scheduled Mail’ button to go to the outbox to see all emails you have set to send. Quick tip: You can configure how many scheduled emails appear in the widget by going to the ‘Configure Dashboard’ section of the home page. 

Scheduled Emails in Automations

In addition to being able to schedule a normal email to go out at a later time, you can now set a delay for automation emails.

Using the ‘Send Email’ automation action, you can set it so the email goes out immediately when the automation executes, waits however many minutes you specify, or doesn’t send at all but saves the message as a draft so that you can review it before sending.

You can now build a personal auto-responder that doesn’t feel too automatic. Set up a new automation that is observing whenever a new lead is created. Add the condition to make sure that’s it’s a web lead that comes through your contact form (not one you created manually from the dashboard). Then set the ‘Send Email’ action to send the message 5 minutes after the lead is created. Voila! A quick response that doesn’t feel like it’s so immediate it must have been automated.
