Release Notes

Version 3.7.0

(Version numbers may be skipped due to internal updates as we are continuously working to improve the application.)

What's New

Major Enhancements

  • Architecture Update – AlarmBiller 3.7.0 includes a major enhancement to the underlying development architecture. While this is not something that will be seen on the user interface; this update keeps AlarmBiller on the latest development technologies and will greatly improve the speed, performance and reliability of the application.
  • Dashboard Widgets – You now can create your own user defined dashboard. When you log into AlarmBiller, you can define your own dashboard with the data elements most appropriate for you.
  • Task Management – This new feature allows for the creation of Tasks throughout the application. Tasks can be used to track anything you need to take care of. Tasks can be assigned to Customers, Invoices, Credits, Work Orders, Bills or just about any entity within AlarmBiller. Tasks can be assigned to any user, and all the information within the Task is easy to reference and visible throughout the application.
  • Auto Apply Unapplied Cash or Credits when Generating Recurring Invoices – This new feature (when activated in Setup) will automatically apply any unapplied Cash or Credit on the Customer’s account to the newly created recurring invoice when generated. There is the ability to flag any open Unapplied Cash or Credit so it will not auto apply (Lock Feature).
