Merlin 2 & Billings Pro

Posted by on Oct 18, 2013 in Billings Pro, Custom Tools, Merlin | 0 comments

A very popular feature in Merlin 2 was the built in script that allowed you to data to Billings, allowing you to plan your project and then directly bill your clients. Unfortunately there was never a version produced to connect to Billings Pro. Until now that is. With Marketcircle ending support for Billings and focusing attention on Billings Pro, we decided to look at how to make the transition easier for customers who were still using Billings – and we decided that a major workflow change such as not being able to directly bill your...

Our Daylite & Billings Pro Numbering Tool

Posted by on Jun 29, 2012 in Billings Pro, Custom Tools, Daylite | 5 comments

One of our most popular custom tools for Daylite and Billings Pro is our Project Numberer. It allows you to create a unique number for each project or opportunity. It’s quite a neat little tool, but it wasn’t without a few little snags. Firstly, there was a risk of duplicate numbers when using it on offline databases. Billings Pro and Daylite databases are stored locally and synch with a server every few minutes. If two users create projects between synchs, the project numbers may get duplicated. Not very much of a problem if you’ve just...

Billings Pro Markup Tool

Posted by on May 28, 2012 in Billings Pro, Custom Tools | 0 comments

This was a request from a client who originally wanted a feature in an invoice. They wanted us to automatically add 5% onto all slips on the invoice to cover project expenses. Pretty easy to do, but as we told them there would be one problem – the totals in Billings Pro would not match up with what was paid which could be confusing and would be a bad working practice. So we thought it would be better if you could automatically take all of the project slips, calculate 5% and add a new slip reflecting this expenses – so that’s what...

Posted by on May 28, 2012 in Billings Pro, Custom Tools, Daylite | 0 comments

Want to be able to easily search for, organise or differentiate between projects in Billings Pro? How about giving each project a unique number? That way you just have to search for the numbers, active projects are sorted in numerical order and you can differentiate between similar projects. It would be difficult though – wouldn’t it? You’d have to look up the next number whenever you create the project, right? Wrong! We have a tool to do this for you. We store a completed project in Billings Pro and use an extra field to store a...
