SMOTGO May 2014 Updates

SMOTGO May 2014 Updates

We have made a few small updates to the site.  They are listed below.  At this time, the development of the Advanced Features has been put on hold.  We had hoped to add parts and labor to the site soon, but for several reasons, it just does not make sense at this time.  The major factor is cost.  The quality of the integration and the size of our user base were right behind that.  If we can get a large enough user base and we can get someone to sponsor it, we will revisit it.

The following is a list of the other changes to the site which are demonstrated on the latest YouTube video at May 2014 Update Video.

  • We update the appointment page so you can see the appointments and time off for the current day under one tab, the week under another, the month under another, and all the appoinments under the last.  This also allows the printing of the appoinment list filtered in any way you want.
  • Better parts tracking between the invoice and the purchase orders.  When a P.O. is processed, it will automatically link the parts on the invoice to the P.O. and to your inventory.  Then on the invoice history page, there is a tab for part purchase history.
  • We added a few new estimate and invoice layouts.  These layouts have the part numbers, labor hours and labor rate removed from them.  This makes it a little harder for the consumer to go check for the parts on the internet.  Some users also requested that just the total labor for a job be displayed.

A lot of the features on the site come from user feedback.  While we don’t make any promises, we always want to here ideas of how the site can be improved.  So if you have any suggestions, just reply to this email or use the link on the bottom of the site.

If you have any questions, email me those as well.  I answer any and all questions as time allows.  I do run a shop full time, so I cannot provide any type of phone support, but I do respond to all emails.

If you have not watched any of the videos, please do yourself a favor and check them out.  At the minimum, watch the quick start guide.  I know a lot of us like to try to figure things out for ourselves, myself included, but your chances of success with SMOTGO will increase dramatically if you spend some time watching some of the videos.  In fact, by watching the videos, I believe you will save more time using SMOTGO then you spend watching the videos.

 All of our videos are on YouTube at SMOTGO videos   Videos can also be accessed by clicking on the help link in the upper right corner of the site.  These links will display the video related to the page that you are on.  You can now like or follow us on FaceBook at SMOTGOFaceBookPage.  We have also set up a discussion group on Google at SMOTGOGoogleGroup.

 We always welcome you feedback, questions, and or suggestions.  You can do that by replying to this email or using the contact link at the bottom of the site.

If you would like to stop receiving these emails, respond to this email with remove in the subject or message.
