Previously it would only update the weeks for which a table entry has been created (that occurs when that week is opened in the Timesheet). The change allows future timesheets to be locked preventing staff from booking hours until such time that they are unlocked.
948 Issue E#1098 Utilities Recycle Bin changes When deleting a project eTrack will first check if there are timesheets and / or expenses associated with any work items under it. If none, the project is deleted with its structure preserved (this makes it easier to restore). Otherwise the user is warned that there are timesheets / expenses that are preventing the deletion to proceed. The user must either move the timesheets/expenses to another project or delete them then try again to delete the project.

This does not apply to supplier invoices where expenses have their own markup %.

947.24 Issue E#111 Notes Notify button on Progress Notes Enhanced this feature so that it can be used in both hosted and local installations (previously only functional if local). It now utilises the built in Email functionality and is thus only available for databases where the email feature is enabled. Changed the Notify dialog into an Email dialog and renamed the Notify button to Email. The button was missing from the Notes tab and has been put back. A note can be emailed to another user – the email address of the selected recipient is shown as read-only text so the user knows where it will be sent. The notification date defaults to but can be changed to a future date. This date can be appended to the email subject – the checkbox to include date in subject is ticked by default. When a note is emailed to another user, that note is added to the recipients Notes screen on the specified notification date.

Email syncs triggered by Send / Receive, Re-Import or Resync buttons and on login if \\\'check immediately after log in\\\' is selected, are now done in the background via eTrackTasks.

In this release the security group permission to override the setting that makes types delete protected has been turned OFF. This is in response to several cases where users with this override enabled have deleted high level items such as whole contact groups which is difficult to restore. Admin users may find that they now cannot delete various types in the tree. If you are an Admin user and cannot delete items that you should have access to delete you can go to Tools > Type Settings and for each type you need to delete untick permission #57 Admin Delete Protected. The config changes include unticking the Fixed Price flag where it is not required, adding Calendars if missing and disabled Timesheet and Assignee utilities in engineering databases.

849.25 Issue Midas#037 Reports Time and Expense report shows correct totals and now has a default grouping by Person.
849.22 Issue EC#4860 Accounts Fixed issue in Accounts tab where values entered in Write Off $ or Invoice $ columns would disappear if not pressed after editing or when the cell had focus and user changed screens.
849.19 Issue E183 Email Fixed crash when clicking Add Attachment button on Send Email dialog.
849.12 Issue EC#4880 Timesheets Fixed issue where a new row was not being created when changing Book To on a row that already had time booked to it.
849.11 Issue EC#4666 Timesheets Fixed issue with Time Capture utility where paused time was adding back after resuming.
849.11 Issue EC#4738 Timesheets Fixed Time Capture utility issues where time was not added if the timesheet cell had focus and time was sometimes recorded on the wrong work item.
849.10 Change EC#4883 Accounts Adjustments reinstated to Accounts sheet for Architect database configurations. Adjustment feature has been reinstated and the rules tightened. Adjustments are available in Architect database configurations only. The Adjust$ column is visible in the Accounts sheet when the [option] ShowAdjustment=1 exists in eTrack Settings. Adjustments can be entered by users who have write access to the Accounts Sheet AND write access to the Adjust$ column as per security groups permissions 38 and 159. This can be set up by an Admin user. A New Adjustment entry is allowed on any Type where a new Invoice entry is allowed as per Type Setting 86 but is limited to Time-Based work – Fixed Price / % work can simply have the Price edited. To add an Adjustment right-click on the work item, select Add New Adjustment entry then enter an amount in Adjust$ column. The Adjustment amount increases WIP so you can bill more than the work done to date. Whilst not invoiced the amount can be edited or the entry deleted via Reverse Adjustment option on the right-click menu. Once an Adjustment has been fully or partially taken up in an invoice, its status will change to \\\'invoiced\\\' and it cannot be edited or reversed. Note that Adjustments do not appear as line items on printed invoices – the amount is simply included in the invoice total. We suggest adding an invoice note eg: This invoice includes an Adjustment of $x. If the purpose of the Adjustment is to bill in advance (rather than simply billing extra) then the process would be to write-off WIP, up to the value of the Adjustments, from labour that is subsequently booked to timesheets.
849.1 Issue EC#4811 Reports Whenever a filter is applied to report results, any grouping is first removed as filtering and grouping cannot be used at the same time.
849.1 Issue EC#4879 Schedule When running the Resource Plan report in the Schedule the Show Only Active Work option is now set to match the Schedule view as indicated by the red A button.
849.1 Issue SVT#582 Reports Totals in reports are refreshed when the results are filtered either via the Filter dropdown or the right-click menu \'Filter By\' option.
849 Change GB#66 Invoices The PO# field on the Invoices tab is now a dropdown listing PO#s if an Information Item of type PO# exists. This usually applies to Engineering databases where Scope Changes are configured. If none exist the field remains as an editable field.
848.5 Change SVT#1082 Schedule Autosave files are now saved to the Backup directory on the server as set in eTrackConsole (default is c:\\etrack\\Backup). Users must have write access to this location. Filenames include the user\'s name.
848.5 New Feature EC#4898 Utilities Renamed eTrackScheduler.exe to eTrackTasks.exe and enhanced its functionality to replace eTrackAlarmService. eTrackTasks is an application to run nominated tasks at scheduled times. To set it up, run eTrackConsole.exe and click Schedule. Select which tasks to run: Update and Optimize Schedules (ETC Update and Update Resource Plans utilities) / Create Folders and Documents linked to files on file server (Document Link Utility) / Backup Database. Then schedule the application to run via Windows Task Scheduler. When launched the application will run the selected tasks sequentially waiting for one to complete before running the next. Refer User Guide for more information. Note: the Doc Link Utility requires a schedule.dat file to specify the tree location where it should run - please contact support for more details.
848.4 Change EC#4788 General Added Refresh button to custom register tabs so user can update to reflect changes made. This is an interim solution to address an issue where a register does not update when an entry is deleted - the entry is deleted from the database and the tree refreshes but the custom tab requires the underlying report to be re-run. An auto-refresh will be implemented in a future release.
848 New Feature EC#4749 Contacts New tab on Contact Groups to list contacts and their details for CRM purposes. Type, Number and Name is displayed by default. Additional details can be added by users as required. The register can be customised for your own CRM purposes by adding Information Items to Company and Individual contact templates and updating the register report to link to these new fields. Please contact eTrack Support for instructions.
848 New Feature EC#4783 Planning Tasks (engineers) Added new option Insert From List on right-click menu that creates a new task where the Task Name is selected from a list. This feature allows you to pre-define your tasks so users can select from a list. To limit users to only selecting from the list you can tick Permission #201 Restrict Editing of Task Name, for each Security Group that will disable the Insert After option and not allow editing of the task field. The list of Tasks is defined under Setup\\eTrack Setttings\\has Lookups\\Planning Tasks
847.3 Change EC#4888 Reports New columns added to Efficiency Report per Week (in the Gallery): Standard Hours (from Person Details tab) and Reimbursability % (Billable Hours/Standard Hours).
847.0 Issue GB#78 Project Details Fixed issue where changing project status caused the project to appear in both the new and existing project group.
847.0 Issue none Project Details Made multi contact list editable by all users even if their security group allows read only access to this screen.
846.5 New Feature BS Spec Email Added a new feature to create a new RFI from an email or save attachments to an existing RFI. To create a new RFI from an email, click New RFI button - eTrack will create a new RFI entry in the construction of the referenced project, including details from the email and attachments. To update an existing RFI, click Add to RFI - eTrack will save the attachments to the selected RFI. After New or Add the RFI is added as a reference to the email and the email is Filed. On the RFI Details tab a new View Emails button will take you to the Email Reference tab to view all emails referenced to the RFI.
846.26 Change E198 Email Added an \"Are you sure?\" prompt when selecting Remove Account from the User Accounts dialog.
846.26 Change S093 General Added Copy, Paste and Cut functions to the right-click menu for grids and fields throughout eTrack and Copy/Paste for checklist items. Various fields now have copy/paste/cut options via the right-click menu. On Checklist tabs the entire Task text can be copied or pasted using Copy Text and Paste Text options. Some fields (those with a yellow background) such as on the Company Details and Person Details tabs are not compatible with this function.
846.25 New Feature EC#4869 Project Details Added feature to allow Status Prefix to be included in the Project Number, Job Number, Opportunity Number etc To use this feature:
1. Expand Setup/eTrack Settings/has Lookups/Category/has Lookup Values/Project/has Lookup Values
2. For each Status (every status must have a prefix) add a Prefix followed by a colon to the start of the Name eg Q:Quote, HOLD:Pending
3. Go to Tools>Type Settings, select Project from the list of Types then set the Number Prefix field to be the same as the Prefix (no colon) of the default status when a new project is created ie the Status associated with the Project Group in Place New Item Under field.
How it works: When project status is changed to 'Quote', the project number will be Q1234
Note: the colon does not appear, if you want the format to be Q:1234 then add two colons eg: Q::Quote.
846.22 Change E116 Email Added BCC function to new emails.
846.22 Change E199 Email Added ability to add a reference to multiple emails at once via the right-click menu or new Add Reference button in the main toolbar.

846.22 Issue E195 Email Fixed the search function so it find matches in the email message text as well as the subject header.
846.21 Issue D168 Documents Fixed user interface on New Document dialog so that the Copy or Link option is selected when user clicks anywhere in the box including the radio button.
846.20 Change D174 Utilities Updated Document Link Utility to exclude all system and hidden files.
846.2 Issue D148 File Management Changed matching rules to stop duplicate project folders being created on the file server when creating folders, renaming tree items or attaching documents in eTrack.
846.2 Issue D165 File Management Fixed issue with Document Link Utility where it created a duplicate project folder on the file server if the original project folder did not have the same Project Name as the matching project in eTrack.
846.2 Issue D166 File Management Fixed issue where an error appeared on creation of folders on the file server to match new folders created in eTrack under a project template.
846.20 Issue D177 Documents Fixed issue so can create a new document from a template that is linked.
846.20 Issue D181 File Management Fixed issue when changing status of a project that has an Acronym value (Acronym option enabled), on the server subfolders were created with no parent project folder.
846.2 New Feature D147 File Management Created new option so that project folders on the file server are named using Acronym field instead of Project Name. When a new project folder is created on the file server to link to a project in eTrack, the project folder is named Project #Project Name by default. If project names are very long you can opt for project folders to be named Project #Acronym by adding this line to eTrack Settings under [options]: FileManagementUseAcronym=1
846.18 Issue D137 Documents Fixed error when creating a new document from a template that is attached.
846.12 Change GB#69 Reports Timesheet Report headings renamed to Number (was Task#) and Name (was Task).
846.12 Change GB#75 Timesheets Increase column width of Task and Rate columns on the Timesheet tab in Engineering databases.
846.12 Issue E191 Email Fixed error that occurred when Filing or Deleting from a filtered list or switching to a tab with no emails matching the filter (search text).
846.12 Issue E196 Email Improved performance of filing emails.
846.12 New Feature GB#80 Expenses/Disbursements New option so checkbox for \'Entry Includes GST\' defaults to ticked. When adding new Actual expenses the \'Entry Includes GST\' checkbox defaults to not ticked to indicate the charge amount is GST-exclusive. To make it default to ticked (ie: charge amount is GST-inclusive) add this line to eTrack Settings under [options]: DefaultExpenseEntryIncludesGST=1
846 Change D103 File Management Changed the default behaviour when saving embedded documents to not save backups in the document path as this is redundant. If you want to save backups (in Word format) of embedded documents, add this line to eTrack Settings under [options] SaveBackupOfEmbeddedDocuments=1
845.4 New Feature E170 Scheduler Application A new application eTrackScheduler developed to sync emails in the background and / or run scheduled tasks. The eTrackScheduler application is installed on the server and has two modes of operation. (1) If you have Built-In Email enabled, whenever eTrack needs to sync your emails it will activate the Scheduler application to execute the sync in the background so that you can continue to use eTrack at the same time. Without the Scheduler application, eTrack will still sync your emails however whilst eTrack is running the sync it is locked to that task and cannot be used – this will have the appearance of eTrack ‘freezing’ and you may think it has stopped working. Refer to the Built-In Email Guide for more details. (2) If you need to run certain events on a regular basis, such as nightly or weekly, the Scheduler application can be launched manually on the server to run these events at scheduled times as defined in a file called Schedule.dat. Currently the Scheduler is able to run the ETC Update and Document Link Utility. Refer to the Admin Guide for more details.
845.2 Change EC#4823 Accounts New rules for Write Off to ensure correct calculation of WIP. The Write Off column in the Accounts tab will only accept positive values. For time-based stages, write-off can be entered at the Stage, Person, Date (hours) and Expense rows. When entered at Stage or Person levels the amount is distributed to Date and Expense rows below. Once an Date / Expense row has an amount written off the Status becomes ‘invoiced’ which makes the items read only in the Timesheet / Expenses tab. For Fixed Price stages only expenses can be written off, to alter WIP edit the Price.
844 New Feature EC#4736 Documents A new feature to record Transmittals has been added to Projects. Transmittals can be recorded on the new Transmittals subtab on a Project. Add contacts and documents by dragging from the tree or using the Add buttons. Click Add Transmittal to add a new Transmittal entry then select the date, type and delivery method. For each document in the transmittal specify the version number and for each contact specify the number of copies sent.
843.5 Change EC#4839 Documents On the Insert Field dialog in the eTrack editor, there are new fields for Project Manager and Job Sub Captain under the Project heading on the Favourites tab.
843.1 Change EC#4484 Expenses/Disbursements Disbursements subtab of a Person has been updated so the list can be filtered by Date and there is a Print button to access the Actual Expenses Report.
843 Change EC#4678 Contract Administration Added Type to Sum Adjust register of Constructions with lookup values of Client Requested, Architect Variation, Provisional, Contingency and Contractor Claim.
842.0 Issue EC#4815 Expenses/Disbursements Fixed issue so the Add Disbursement button displays the correct list of disbursements on the dialog.
842.0 Issue EC#4828 Settings Turned off Security Group permission #188 for all groups as relates to functionality no longer supported.
841.1 Change S092 Accounts The types under which Invoice Entries in the Accounts tab can be created is now controlled by Type Settings. The default types are Stage, Phase, Opportunity, Disbursements, Sub-Consultants and Variations. If you are using different terminology or wish to create Invoice Entries under a different Type please select Tools>Type Settings, select the Type on the left and tick permission #86 Allow Invoice Entries in Accounts under Type. It is important that invoice entries are only created at the same level - if invoice entries exist at multiple levels, for instance at both the project and stage level, this will result in an incorrect WIP calculation and invalidate the Accounts on the project..
841.1 Issue EC#4723 Planning Tasks (engineers) Added scroll bar to Commercial tab so can view all fields when using low resolution monitors.
840.8 Change EC#3688 Budget The way Price is calculated for % Based stages (ie: Fixed Price ticked and Lump Sum not ticked) has changed to Price = % of Contract * Contract Fee. This applies to the Project Budget tab (Price structure table) and Stage Details tab (Cost Structure section). If you would like to use the old formula ie: Price = % of Contract * [Contract Fee - sum (lump sum Prices)] add this line to eTrack Settings under [Options] PercentofContractCalc=1
840.6 Change EC#4501 Documents Document Link Utility changed so it does not create duplicate project folders. The Document Link Utility has always matched on Project Number only ie: it links documents to projects where a folder name in the Document Path contains a Project Number in eTrack. Previously it also created a folder in the Document Path named Project# ProjectName if one did not exist. This last step has been removed.
840.6 Change EC#4782 General Name fields such as Client and Owner now display names in First Name Surname format (previously was Surname, First Name)
840.6 Issue EC#4600 Security Turn ON Type Setting #19 Hide Active Checkbox in Item Details for Person and Role
840.6 New Feature EC#4445 Reports New Budget Table Report: to run on a project and returns data shown in the Budget table for each Stage where Variance < $0.

840.16 Issue EC#4813 Contract Administration Fixed issue where RFI Type was not being saved and Response Received reverted to today\'s date.
840.14 Change D146 Documents Removed Save As Managed option from New Document - Attach File dialog.
840.12 Change EC#4777 Budget If Lump Sum on a stage is not ticked, Price cannot be edited as it is calculated as a % of Contract Fee.
840.12 Issue EC#4801 Invoices Fixed issue where invoice numbers were not being corrected generated in sequence.
840.11 Change EC#4751 Planning Tasks (engineers) Added new option Insert Copy on right-click menu that creates a new task like Insert After but has the Task Name copied from the selected task.
840.11 Change ESR1197A.3 Contacts Changed the label of field Home Phone to Other Phone.
838.9 Issue EC#4709 Invoices Fixed issue where Fixed Price invoices were not being picked up in the Export to Accounting Package when AccountsExportOption=4
838.6 Issue EC#4674 Invoices Invoices tab: various issues resolved. Added \'Clear Date\' option to right-click menu so Date Paid can be deleted. If a row is edited when the grid is filtered, changes are correctly applied. Changes to Payment Details are saved automatically. If a filter is applied and then a row is edited, fixed so \'apply filter\' refreshes the results.
838.5 Issue EC#4578 Security Fixed bug where new security groups became orphaned.
838.5 Issue EC#4658 Contacts Fixed error where the edit box linked to ‘Use Address’ was editable for all selections (but edits not saved). The field is now only editable when Use Address = Other Address.
838.4 New Feature EC#4690 Documents Added Insert Symbol feature to the eTrack editor.
838.4 New Feature EC#4692 Reports Add options to change Page Layout and Paper Size in custom reports. Portrait/Landscape and Paper Size can be changed in Custom Reports in the ‘Preview’ subtab. Buttons for Portrait/Landscape and a Papersize dropdown are near the zoom at the bottom. They can also be changed in the ‘Print Setup’ dialog.
838.33 Change D133 Documents Double-click an embedded document name in the tree and the document opens in the Editor (shortcut for right-click>Edit>Document).
838.33 Change D136 Documents Documents tab will now list documents for the selected tree item only. Previously the Documents tab listed all documents for the selected tree item plus all documents for its child items that was slow to load. Now each child item eg:stage is also listed and can be double-clicked to expand down to it\'s document list .
838.33 Change EC#4722 Accounts Adjustments column (to Bill in Advance) removed from Accounts sheet. The functionality to increase WIP via an adjustment (Adjust$ column) has been removed. To Bill in Advance for time-based work: go to the Disbursements subtab on the stage (or Disbursements stage in the tree), click Add Disbursement, select the item called Adjustment and set the Actual Charge to the amount you want to bill in advance. Once the work has actually been done, you can write off the new charges via the Write Off column in the Accounts tab.
838.33 Change EC#4757 Invoices Clients that are couples or individuals are now properly catered for in the invoice export. For couples, on the Company/Couple Details screen tick the new checkbox ‘Is a Couple’. Then create individual contacts for each person and set one of these as the Billing Contact. The invoice export will take the first name, last name and (street) address of the Billing Contact. For individuals the export has been fixed to export name and address correctly.
838.33 Issue D134 Documents When renaming an item, save when exit the field. Was previously saving on every keystroke that affected performance.
838.29 Issue D135 File Management Improved performance when editing a Project Name by updating file paths when leaving the field rather than on every keystroke.
838.28 Change S070 Timesheets Timesheet tab layout improvements 1. Added TODAY button for quick return to the current week. 2. Book To column widened. 3. Removed \"hint\" text and extra Activity dropdown field.
838.27 Change S100 Budget Added radio buttons so user can select whether the architect’s project fee is a fixed Contract Fee or calculated as a % of the contract (construction) value.
838.2 Issue EC#3434 Accounts Fixed error in Accounts sheet where the status of an invoiced timesheet row would update when the status of the person was edited.
838.17 Change EC#4285 General New Help links. The Help menu now has 3 new options: 1. Help Guides 2. FAQ 3. Release Notes Each will take you to the relevant page of the eTrack website. You will be prompted for a username and password that are both: dolphin42 Links to the old Help files have been removed. If you have old versions of eTrack Help files on your local machine or server, these can be deleted.
838.17 Change EC#4717 Invoices Added new option to the Invoice Batches filter called \"all exported\" which will filter invoices to show only those with a Batch Number.
838.17 Change S087b Invoices Invoices tab improvements with All checkbox, Invoice Template dropdown and export dialog. The list of invoice templates in the Template dropdown is now refreshed to reflect what is on the server (rather than listing templates previously used as this caused an error on print if the previously used template had since been deleted). Fixed ‘all’ checkbox so that a single click selects / unselects all invoices. Remove reference to ‘MYOB’ on the export dialog since export is compatible with multiple accounting packages.
838.12 Issue EC#4714 Project Details Fixed issue where Client field on a project was being cleared after visiting the Budget tab.
838.11 Change EC#4706 Documents The Document Link Utility can now be configured to exclude OR include specific file types according to a user-defined filter list. The current behaviour to link to all file types in the Doc Path will remain the default. To apply a filter, enter one of the following under [options] in eTrack Settings and edit the extension list as required (minimum of one extension is required). Note the ‘;’ between each extension: DocumentLinkExcludeList=.exe;.dll;.jpg DocumentLinkIncludeList=.doc;.pdf;.xls;.docx If both options exist, only the Include option is applied. Note that ALL Folders in the Doc Path are linked to. If the folder on the server only contains excluded files, the linked folder in eTrack will be empty.
838.11 Issue EC#4684 Accounts Fixed two issues in Accounts sheet where WIP on expenses was incorrectly processed after creating / editing an invoice entry.
838.10 New Feature S088 Contract Administration Improved the integration between the Construction stage and Project>Budget tab. 1. Added ‘open’ buttons on the Project Budget tab for easy navigation to Sum Adjust and Progress Claims registers. 2. Added warning for user to visit the Project Budget tab after saving Sum Adjusts and Progress Claims to refresh Contract Fee and % Based stage Prices. This is required to provide the latest data to Reports and Invoicing.
838 Change EC#4559 Reports Invoice Report: fixed value shown for Total (Inc GST) and added new column $ owing to show unpaid balance.
837.44 Issue EC#4671 Invoices Allow Date Paid and Paid$ to be entered on invoices with \"exported\" status (in addition to \"printed\" status).
837.35 New Feature EC#4610 Timesheets Allow each timesheet cell to be flagged as 'do not invoice' so the charge for that work is not added to the total Actual Charge of the job. "To enable this feature go to each security group and tick permission #200 "Allow Access to Do Not Invoice". To use this feature, right-click on a timesheet cell and tick the Do Not Invoice option - the time booked will appear pink to indicate the charge rate has been set to $0. In the Accounts sheet any timesheet cell flagged as 'do not invoice' will not appear. LIMITATION: in the Accounts Sheet, Actual Hours includes ALL hours booked regardless of the 'do not invoice' flag."
837.28 Issue EC#4655 Invoices Properly itemise expenses on the printed invoice when there are multiple entries of the same expense type.
837.21 Change EC#4640 Security Add new permission to allow users to edit Timesheet Activities. Write access to various subtabs on stages is protected from the User security group. This setting allows users to edit the Timesheet Activities subtab while still maintaining the appropriate level of access for other areas. To enable go to User Security Group Settings and tick permission #199 Allow Timesheet Activity Editing.
837.19 New Feature EC#4596 Accounts Allow a project to be invoiced in another currency. "eTrack allows projects to be tracked in other currencies but invoicing is done in the default currency. A new option allows for invoicing in the project currency. To enable this add the following setting to eTrack Settings under [options] DoNotConvertCurrencyInAccounts=1 When this setting is 1, the project will not be converted to the default currency when loaded in the Accounts tab."
837.12 Issue EC#4630 Checklists Fixed QA rollout feature to prevent duplicate rows being rolled out and correctly rollout header rows.
837.09 Issue EC#4607 Reports Fixed issue where the Activity / Time Report (gallery) was showing expense amounts including GST (where 'entry includes GST' was ticked on the expense). All values in the report are now ex-GST.
834.8 Issue EC#4524 Reports Fixed issue where Activity / Time report (gallery) returned no results when run on the 'projects' relationship under a project group.
834.13 Issue EC#4556 Documents Fixed crash in documents when editing tables.
834.08 Issue EC#4566 File Management Fixed issue where the backup file on the server was being saved after every keystroke when changing the document name in the editor. Now saves when you leave the field.
834.04 Change EC#4589 Invoices On Invoices tab, Discount $ has been renamed to Paid Write off $. Use this to record amounts such as $ not paid (bad debt), rounding or discrepancies due to currency conversions etc
834.04 Issue EC#4438 File Management Stripped invalid characters from file path when creating folders on the server. When saving folders/documents the file path on the server is a direct match to the tree path. eTrack allows special characters to be included in tree item names but these are not allowed by Windows so the folder creation fails in this case. Stripping the invalid character maintains naming flexibility while resolving this issue.
834.04 Issue EC#4527 Security Fixed issue where 'user' security group users could not tick checklist items or input details on new expenses even though the correct permissions were on.
834.04 Issue EC#4554 Documents Fixed issue where documents did not save changes to margins and page layout.
834.04 Issue EC#4583 Info Items Fixed issue where dates on info items were not saving.
834.04 New Feature EC#4539 Invoices New option to export invoices to MYOB. Manual step is required (see Description). 1. New Lookup Tax Codes with items GST, FRE, EXP and N-T
2. New info item Tax Code on Contacts (both Company and Individual contacts) linked to the Tax Code lookup. All existing and new Contacts have Tax Code set to GST by default.
3. Tax Code field on Expenses (Disbursements/Sub-Consultants) linked to the Tax Code lookup. All existing expenses have Tax Code set to GST for standard expenses or FRE for gst-exempt expenses. New expenses have no Tax Code and must be set by the user.
4. MANUAL STEP: Go to eTrack Settings in the tree On the Settings Details tab scroll down to the ACCOUNTING PACKAGE section and make sure the following option is set so it looks like AccountsExportOption=4 This option means the export will use the tax code from the client info item.
834.04 New Feature EC#4540 Timesheets Added feature to rollout out new timesheet activities from a template. "To add new timesheet activities to all existing projects based on a template: 1. Expand the tree to Project Templates and add the timesheet activities. 2. Right click and select Rollout... 3. Choose the options that you require and click Continue. 4. Press F5 refresh."
834.01 Issue EC#4538 File Management When saving a document on the server if any tree item that makes up the document path contains invalid characters, these are ignored. This ensures the folder creation does not fail.
833.21 Issue EC#4141 Reports When a report is exported to Excel, negative currency values do not have brackets so Excel can apply the Currency format and include the values in formulas.
833.21 Issue EC#4565 Rate Sets On the Person Details tab, changes to Charge Rate and Cost Rate are now processed separately (previously were combined into one action on leaving the tab). On the Person Details tab, changes to Charge Rate and Cost Rate are now processed separately (previously were combined into one action on leaving the tab). If you change either rate, upon leaving the field you will be prompted if you want to update the assignee rates. You will be given this option whether or not the Always Use rate checkbox is ticked.
833.08 Issue EC#4489 Contract Adminstration Fixed error where new or edited construction register items were not updating until the user logged out and in again.
833.06 Issue EC#4519 Accounts The Date Filter on Accounts sheet will now not allow a date to be selected if the filtered results include invoice entries that are linked to work items dated past the selected filter date.

833 Change EC#4190 General All Details screens now have a rich text editing ribbon
833 Issue EC#3637 Expenses/Disbursements Invoiced disbursements / expenses cannot be deleted or edited
833 Issue EC#3792 Reports When running the Budget report using the hyperlink from the Budget tab, the option (under Show in the search criteria dialog) selected by default matches the view of the Budget table eg: if View is Cost Rates, then Use Cost Rate is ticked.
833 Issue EC#4466 General Fixed display issue where Price Structure table could not be seen on small screens such as on small laptops.
833 New Feature EC#4469 Invoices Created new #TAGS that allow both fixed and hourly stages to be printed with details on the same invoice.

823.26 Change EC#4003 Invoices Invoice To Date calculation Previously eTrack calculated the $Invoice To Date value (on the Project > Budget tab in the Price Structure table) when an invoice was printed. In the interim between creating and printing invoices this value did not match the total $Invoice on the Account Sheet. Now the $Invoice To Date value is calculated at the time the Invoice is created. Should you wish to maintain the old functionality add this to eTrack settings under [Options] InvoiceToDateCalc=1 With this setting only invoices with Invoice Status of ‘Printed’, ‘Exported’ or ‘Printed and Exported’ will be included in the $Invoice To Date value. A new hint on the $Invoice To Date column says which invoices are included based on the Option.
823.26 Change EC#4305 Reports Allow user to enter a date range when running a report for 'whole of office' Previously when a report was run from the top main menu (for whole of office) it used the default date range (current financial year).

When the report is run the Gallery will be displayed allowing the user to enter a date range.

Additionally the displayed list of notes can be filtered by note type. It will default to ‘Progress’ after login.
822.09 Change none General Date Types Many Date-type fields throughout eTrack have been changed so that dates can now only be selected from the calendar control and not typed directly into the field. Click or double-click in the field to display the calendar.
822.09 Issue EC#3908 General Improved the functioning of Information Item date fields The values in Information Items fields that are date types do not change when the user clicks in the field. Users without write access to information items cannot edit the value of dates. The ‘clear’ option on the right-click menu works correctly. Date fields have been changed so that dates can now only be selected from the calendar control and not typed directly into the field. Click or double-click in the field to display the calendar.
822.08 New Feature EC#3823 Reports Pre-filtering for custom reports via Additional Criteria and Save Criteria option to set default search criteria for all users. PRE-FILTER Added Additional Criteria fields to the Report Gallery search criteria so you can pre-define the filtering of the report results before running the report. The ‘column’ dropdown lists the report columns that can be selected for filtering, including information items. Select a column then select an ‘operation’ and a ‘value’. For date ranges, you must define the start date in one operation followed by the end date in the next operation. Pre-filtering can result in significant speed-ups when running reports. Limitation: A context specific list of values (for the Value picklist) cannot be determined prior to running the report. The reason is that a database field may be used for different Types and thus appear on multiple screens throughout eTrack. Note that a field is not identified by its label on the screen but the underlying definition in the code. In some cases the field is used widely and the picklist is very large as it will contain all possible values across all applications of the field. You are not restricted to selecting an item from the picklist - the field is editable so you can type the value you wish to search for, however it must be an exact match to be found. SAVE CRITERIA The Save Criteria button allows an administrator to set additional criteria for the report so that when other users login these are the default. The other users can run the report using different criteria if they wish but they cannot save new defaults. If a user changes the criteria when they logout and in again the saved criteria will display again. Any administrator who logins and removes the additional criteria will be prompted if they want to make these the new defaults. Save Criteria button is controlled by security group permission #22 Access to Report Writer (usually on for Admin only).
822.01 Change none Invoices Invoice Date On Invoices tab, Date To Invoice / Date Printed column has been renamed Invoice Date, date defaults to invoice entry from Account Sheet (if multiple invoice entries with different dates then newest date is used and all invoice entries are set to that date), date can be edited but not cleared (Clear Date removed from right-click menu), printing an invoice does not change the Invoice Date.
822.01 Issue EC#3949 Invoices Invoice date in Account Sheet reflects changes made in Invoices tab When the Invoice Date of an invoice is changed on the Invoices tab, the new date is reflected against all of the invoice entries in the Account Sheet that apply to that invoice.
822.01 Issue EC#4251 Schedule Resolution for Actuals not being displayed in Schedule In previous releases, when ticking the checkbox in the Schedule Options to display Actuals, a refresh was done but Actual values were not being loaded from the database. This was a bug introduced due to the reversing of a flag that was not changed in one place in the code. There was a work around: tick to include Actuals in the Schedule Open dialog. If Actuals had previously been loaded in the session such as by looking at a timesheet or running a report, then they would be displayed, which explains why it appears intermittent.
822.01 New Feature EC#4048 Invoices Invoice Print Preview The Print Preview feature allows you to see the invoice in the selected Invoice template without triggering any of the actions that printing an invoice does ie: generating an invoice number, changing Invoice Status or updating the Invoice To Date $ value. On the Invoices tab, right click on an invoice and select Print Preview from the popup menu.
822.01 New Feature none Invoices Invoice Status A new column has been added to the Invoices tab called Invoice Status. When an invoice is created Invoice Status will default to ‘Approved’. Invoices cannot be printed or exported when the Invoice Status is ‘Not Approved’. You can manually change the status from ‘Approved’ to ‘Not Approved’ however should you wish new invoices to default to ‘Not Approved’ please add this to eTrack settings under [Options] DefaultInvoiceStatus=0 The Invoice Status will automatically change as follows: • ‘Printed’ when the invoice is printed • ‘Exported’ when the invoice is exported • ‘Printed and Exported’ when the invoice has been both exported and printed (in either order) After an invoice has been printed the status cannot be manually changed. After an invoice has been exported the status cannot be manually changed however if you clear the batch number the status will return to ‘Approved’. NOTE: All existing Invoices will have a status of ‘Approved’ even though they may have been already printed and/or exported.

This fixes the error where ETC became 0 when switching screens after time was booked.
