Next version preview pt.2 – CSV Export addon

The next version is coming up, and as I’ve just finished developing this i thought I’d share a screenshot of the new add-on that will be included with the new HostBill (1.4.6). CSV Exporter is a simple tool for everyone who wants to do accounting outside HostBill and who needs a set of data exported from it. Youʼll be able to export invoices, transactions, accounts, domains and client details to be used in any program that is compatible with CSV format.

Next version preview pt.1 – Ticket replies drafts

We’re not slowing down 😉 Next version will be delivered sooner than you expect – within 2-3 weeks, and of-course we got some amazing features coming up. Next HostBill version would be all about admin/support-collaboration. On a side of improved administrator privileges we will also introduce Ticket replies drafts feature – your reply will now automatically be stored for later use – so you can start typing reply to ticket, get more information and get back to replying later. Plus other support staff will also know that you’re replying, so no more double-replying of your fast support team;) Screenshot will say it all for you:

Next version preview pt.2 – Customizable client fields

With release of new version we will introduce new feature to HostBill – customizable client fields. During signup client will pick his profile type – Private profile or Company profile – as an administrator you’ll be able to configure which fields need to be displayed for each type of customer, you also will be able to set those fields required or not, to be displayed on client invoice or not. You will be able to define your own custom fields – lets say you operate in European Union and wants your commercial customers to provide their VAT number during signup – nothing simplier with HostBill! Take a look at screenshots and see by yourself.
