  • Add attachments in the register. Once you turn on the attachments column (see above), click a transaction and then click  Add Attachment.

Bank feed improvements

Inventory tracking3 improvements

  • Easily see the quantity available as you’re entering sales forms. For example, let’s say you’re creating an invoice; go to Create (+) Invoice. When you enter an inventory item in the Product/Service field and then tab to or click the  Qty field, a tooltip appears with the quantity available, for example “Available: 2” or “Out of stock.”
