New Web Forms – *UPDATE: Now Live

**Update – Now Live**

We are close (as in this coming week) to making available the new web forms tool for WORK[etc].

Web forms are a critical part of WORK[etc], enabling a link between your web site, getting information into WORK[etc] and then using that information to automatically create a sales lead, a support case, a new contact or capture information and view in a report.

What’s Changed?

A lot of the changes we’ve implimented have come directly from the feature suggestion forum.  In summary:

  • Forms now give you the option of disabling customer look up (requiring your customer to log into your form) and disabling auto-update of customer records
  • Re-arranging questions on your form is now a simple matter of dragging and dropping each individual element
  • Javascript can now be used to insert the form in your web site
  • Documents can now be uploaded via a web form
  • And a whole lot of other suggestions

I’ll update this post when we push it through to beta release; 90% likely before the end of the week.

Where to now…

In order to complete and roll out the new Sales & CRM modules, we needed to complete 3 core modules:

  • Lightning fast searchcompleted!
  • Web Forms – 99% completed!
  • Roles, Permissions & Groups – 50% completed

So this means we can really push on with the new sales and CRM modules including customizable table display, sales workflows (including drip email marketing), new sales leads views and better management of sales leads.

Were also a good way into the Outlook Plugin.  This basically works the same way as our Gmail Plugin, but inside of Outlook.  I’ll post some screen shots shortly.

And we’re about to knock off the Xero integration and Quicken integration with development due to start October 10th and completed inside of 3 – 4 weeks.

Customer Support / Product Specialists

I’m hiring more customer support people, preferably in the East Coast of USA timezone.  Email me (daniel at worketc) if you’re interested – I do have a preference for hiring existing WORK[etc] users!

Where Your Gadgets Go To Die

The world is drowning in garbage, and we’re all starting to suffer because of it. One of the worst is electronic waste, or e-waste.

Tried and Tested WORKetc Tips From Real Users Pt. 1

I’m not bragging when I say that WORKetc has a lot of features. It’s just stating a fact. After all, would you expect any less from an all-in-one business management software that seamlessly merges CRM, projects, sales, billing, help desk, and more in one app? Another thing I’ve always harped on about is the level […]

The Hidden Costs of “Free” CRMs

While getting coffee a couple of days ago I overheard someone in the line behind me say one of the most cliched lines ever set to music: “The best things in life are free.” That may very well be true in a sort of metaphysical or emotional aspect (some of us might actually have to […]

Work Smarter, Work Faster, and Save Time with WORKetc and G Suite

WORKetc Soon to be Powered by the World’s Largest Cloud Network

Right around 2002, Amazon had a problem: their app engineers didn’t have the necessary infrastructure and tools with which to build products without having to lose too much time talking to their networking engineers. They got rid of the need for this constant back-and-forth by building a system that would let them build web-scale applications […]
