New application menu

Brand new application

Elorus has a brand new menu! All major features are now available to the top-level to enable faster access.

You'll notice the new design is a bit wide so that more elements can fit. For smaller screens, such as tablets and computers with low resolution, the menu will shrink to save some space.

Apart from the menu, the application action buttons, previously available at the top of each page (e.g. add invoice, edit invoice etc), were moved to the top-right to save vertical space. Last but not least, we also introduce a brand new icon set that looks pretty cool!

Goodbye purchase invoices. Enter bills!

Over the past few months we've been working on a massive update to the expense / purchase management workflow in Elorus. Today, we're excited to introduce the first of a series of updates towards that end. The primary goal of today's release is to speed up the process of tracking your purchase invoices. 

 

A whole new experience

 

Let's say you receive a supplier invoice and want to record the transaction in Elorus. What do you do?

  1. Open the invoice PDF or image using an external software.
  2. Switch to Elorus and enter the amounts you see on the PDF to the purchase form.
  3. Save the purchase invoice.
  4. Visit the purchase invoice's detail page and upload the PDF as attachment for future reference.

Although the above will work, it's a kind of slow and complicated process that we felt can be improved. We thought, why not upload the attached file and enter the invoice data at the same time? And that's what we did! We have completely redesigned the purchase invoice pages, so you can preview the document in Elorus, enter the data without ever leaving the application environment and save the record in one go.

New bill management experience

Bills & supplier credits

 

As part of the update, purchase invoices have been renamed to just bills. Similarly, purchase credti notes are now called supplier credits. We feel these new terms are easier to follow and capture the essence of both features much better. In real world, any kind of purchase that has to be paid, is refered to as "bill". Elorus features a complete, separate process to manage bill payments and monitor outstanding or overdue bills, which makes all the pieces come together.

 

Less typing

 

Finally, we've reduced the fields needed to record a bill. The document type, related documents and line item title fields have all been removed, since they were only used for display purposes. That said, if you are among those who used multiple document types for reporting purposes, please rest assured: We have created a custom tracking category called "document type" in your account. We then migrated all your existing data to the new category, so you may continue doing your thing!

New reports: Sales by client & purchases by supplier

Historically, in order to monitor sales by client in Elorus you should run the invoices report, group results by client and watch for the calculated sub-totals. Although this process works as expected, it can get tedious and hard to follow at times, especially when the results span accross multiple pages. 

The all-new, sales by client report.

Starting today, there's a better way to achieve this: The all-new sales by client & purchases by supplier reports. The sales by client report summarizes sales transactions (invoices & credit notes) and calculates total amounts per client. Puchases by supplier is a similar report that accounts for bills and supplier credits. Both reports come with a set of filtering options and will most certainly help you get the job done quickly!

The invoices detail report & credit note detail report have also been merged to a single sales detail report. Each row represents either an invoice or credit note, with credit notes having a negative effect on the results. The same goes for the old purchase invoices & purchase credit notes detail reports, which have been merged to a single report. Once again, we expect this change to speed up your workflow, since you can access accumulated results easier than ever.

Backup / export data

Backup / export data

The data export functionality, previously available via the corresponding list pages (e.g. invoice list page, estimate list page etc), has been updated. We've gathered all export options in a single page, where you can easily backup your Elorus data in CSV files. To access the new "Backup" page, select "Settings -> Application settings -> Backup" from the left menu.

Please note that the old export links are no longer available. That said, you can still backup data selectively (e.g. only invoices) via the new page.

Archive contacts

Archive contacts

Archiving records is a great way to shorten your lists without deleting historic data in Elorus. Starting today, you may archive contacts that you no longer deal with, be it clients or suppliers. The great news is that archived contacts do not count towards the subscription's client limit, which means you can raise your current limits just by archiving old clients! However, a few extra restrictions apply:

  1. Archived contacts cannot be invoiced
  2. Archived contacts cannot be assigned to new projects
  3. Archived contacts are not visible in various reports
  4. Archived contacts cannot login to the client portal

Archived contacts may be reactivated any time.

6 decimal places on taxes

To facilitate complex scenarios, Elorus can now handle up to 6 decimal places on taxes. This is especially useful to represent compound or chained taxes (i.e. a tax calculated on top of another tax).

For example, when invoicing a public body in Greece, a 0.06% tax must be applied. The stamp duty is calculated as 3% over the tax amount (0.06 * 0.03 = 0.0018%). Finally, there is a 20% withholding tax over the stamp duty. Therefore, the withholding tax rate is 0.0018 * 0.2 = 0.00036% over the invoice's net total. To support such rates, taxes can now accept up to 6 decimal places.

Template font settings

Template custom fonts

Following a massive update -a complete rewrite actually :)- to the Elorus tempate engine, today we are happy to introduce font and font size customizations. In previous versions, each invoice layout was bound to specific fonts; the font size selection was also limited down to a few choices. Following this update, you may choose the exact font families that will be used to render an invoice, along with the corresponing font sizes (in pixels). A list of the most poular serif, sans-serif and monospace fonts is available.

Automatically email recurring invoices

Invoices created by a recurring invoice may now be automatically emailed to the client. You may enable this feature per recurring invoice, as long as the "mark created invoices as issued" option is selected. The email subject & message will be generated according to your default email settings. As always, you may monitor the delivery status via the invoice's detail page.
