Make proactive business decisions by tracking your contacts

Set up tracking categories to tag your contacts and see how different areas of your business are performing. Monitor your sales department, create your own cost breakdown analysis or even see geo-analytics for your contacts. For example you can easily set up a new "Salesperson" tracking category by creating one option for each of your sales persons. Just assign the options to your contacts and Elorus will automatically let you monitor your sales per salesperson, as depicted in the image below.

Fixed rate taxes

A fixed tax is a tax that is measured against a fixed rate, rather than a percentage of the tax base. Fixed taxes are used in various countries and typically apply to luxury goods and services. Using Elorus, you can now create fixed taxes simply by specifying the tax amount.

A fixed tax may also be applied progressively, so that the final tax amount increases in proportion to purchased quantity. For example in Greece, a special form of tax should be applied to coffee consumption. The tax rate is 3€ per kg and therefore the total tax amount increases as the purchased quantity increases. Within Elorus, to create this kind of tax simply enable the "amount depends on quantity" option.

Elorus now supports fixed rate taxes on invoices

Choose between US letter & A4 invoice paper sizes

Elorus users may now print/export their invoices using the US letter paper format, or the international A4 paper size. The default paper size depends on your country of business residency (e.g. Letter in the US or Canada, A4 in Europe), but can be customized per your needs: Each invoice template can have its own paper size preference. Of course, the paper size setting is taken into consideration both when exporting an invoice PDF and when printing out an invoice.

Show related estimates on the invoice PDF

If you're creating new invoices out of accepted estimates, you may now display the related estimate on the invoice's PDF. There's a new template setting that enables / disables this new feature, found under the "Content" tab of the invoice template editor. Updating the setting will affect all invoices using that particular template. Of course, you may override the setting's behavior on a per-invoice basis as well (e.g. hide the estimate on a particular invoice).

User password & session security updates

Keeping your data safe has always been our top priority. Not only is Elorus ISO 27001 certified, but we also strive to improve the application security every day. Today, we introduce an enhanced password strength policy, as well as a new lockout process to secure your account.

From now on, Elorus will only accept passwords that are considered "strong", being at least 8 characters and containing a mix of capital, lower case letters and digits. Hence, Elorus will be locking your account when you fail to enter the password correctly. The lockout process will protect you from potential attackers attempting to guess your password. Of course, for your own convenience, this is a temporary lock out: You may try again after 20 minutes or even request a password reset to unlock and access your account immediately.

Last but not least, we've updated the application to terminate your session after 30 minutes of inactivity. If you're on a private computer and wish to bypass this feature, you may use the "Stay signed in" option while logging in.

Introducing new variables for your email messages

We've added some new variables you can all use when sending invoices or automated reminders to your clients via email. Here are the new additions:

Client first name: This variable will be automatically substituted by your client's first name.

Client last name: This variable will be automatically substituted by your client's last name.

Client company name: This variable will be automatically substituted by your client's company name.

The above variables come on top of the already existing "Client company or person name" variable. While the old variable uses the person's name as fallback to a missing company name (so that something is always displayed in any case), the new variables will be empty if the information is missing from the corresponding contact. For example, if you want to use a more personal tone, you could use the "Client first name" variable without worrying that the company name might sneak into the message.

Client amount due: This variable will be automatically substituted by the client's total amount due, as displayed on the client statement. Note how this differs from the "Client invoices due" variable, which will only show how much the client owes you for invoices (not considering credit notes or other payments that you may have received).

Weekly timesheets

Today we are excited to introduce the arrival of the much-requested timesheets in Elorus. This new feature will simplify the way you track working hours and make it super-easy for your teammates to record the time spent on each task.

You may think of timesheets as a two-dimensional array where time is the first dimension and tasks is the second. Given a calendar week, you can quickly log the time spent each day on a specific task. For your convenience, you may also specify the amount of time that is actually billable within the timesheet. Of course, other details like the project and an optional description may also be provided.

As you might have guessed, behind the scenes, timesheets create and modify regular time entries. Therefore, time recorded via the timesheets can be monitored in project & time reports. It can also be invoiced and managed in the normal "time list" page. The new feature does not interfere with your team's permissions scheme either: Team managers may review and edit the timesheets of other team members, while restricted users may only manage their own time.

Billable expenses

Your Project expenses can be billed directly to your clients from now on! While associating expenses with projects, you are presented with the option to mark the particular expense line as billable. Next time you invoice this project, you will be able to include the corresponding expenses in the invoice. You may also filter out expenses based on the expense date, as well as choose how specific expenses will appear on the invoice.

Project expenses

A long-awaited feature has finally arrived: Expenses may now be associated with projects to provide insight about your projects' profitability. When creating/editing expenses, you may correlate the expense lines with a project. Since an expense may be comprised of several lines, it's also possible to associate the expense with multiple projects

Project expenses may also be monitored via the project page. The project indices section provides a quick overview of the expenses, while a detailed expense list is available towards the bottom of the page. As you might expect, the project reports have also been updated to account for this new functionality.

Project summary report

The project page has been updated to include a new summary report. You may break down the project hours per task or assignee and monitor the corresponding time and revenues.

The report offers a secondary dimension as well: Let's say you have chosen to view the hours per assignee and then per task. Each row in the results will represent the total time that a single user has spent on the project. You can also click on a row to reveal the time that this specific user has spent on each task.

If you want to monitor the exact time entries that each row summarizes, you can always follow the link of the corresponding "total time" column. Using the previous example, click on the link and you will be transferred to the time entry detail reports, with the "project", "assignee" and time period filters conveniently pre-filled, so you can view each time entry the assignee has recorded.

Needless to say that, as always, you may customize the reporting period as well as the report columns.

"Time list" view updates

The "time list" view page has been updated in order to integrate with the all-new timesheet workflow and provide you all with a better user experience. 

As you may already know, the "time list" page is the main place where you can overview and manage time in Elorus. It provides the means to create and edit time entries. It can also be the primary tool that monitors your team's activity on a daily basis.

Starting from today, this view will always reflect the recorded time within a specific calendar week by a specific user (assignee). This allows you to seamlessly switch between the "time list" and the all-new "timesheet" views: The former will always show your daily time entries in detail, while the latter will provide a weekly overview. 

The "time list" view comes with an improved time navigator to help you locate and monitor your entries weekly or daily wtih just a couple of clicks.

We've also made a couple of adjustments to help you work faster: Time entry editing is now performed on the time list page directly and is easier than ever. We've also added shortcuts to quickly log time for any day within the active calendar week. Even deleting time entries requires now one less click :)
