Studiometry Cloud

Studiometry 15 has huge performance improvements, new timer and invoice features, much more

Huge Performance Boosts

Studiometry 15 got a big tune up! Many Studiometry users have years of data that could slowly build up to slow down the app. We’ve focused on optimizing many areas that could cause bottlenecks during daily use. Studiometry runs much, much faster now for users with larger databases, and the improvements will still be noticeable for users with data of any size.

 

 

Studiometry Cloud: Mobile Web App (Including Android!)

Up until now, accessing your Studiometry data on Apple mobile devices (iPhones, iPads) meant installing the Studiometry Touch app, and access on Android was simply not possible. Now, you’ll be able to go to cloud.oranged.net on any browser and log in to manage your To Dos, Timers, and Time Sheets. Any changes made will automatically sync to any copies of Studiometry on Mac/PC as well as any installed Studiometry Touch apps on iOS. It’s a great convenient way to access a small subset of your data, and it’s the first time Studiometry can be accessed in any way on Android!

 

 

 

Studiometry Cloud: Performance and Account Improvements

We’ve added a lot of performance and stability improvements to Studiometry Cloud syncing as well. Syncing a large number of changes will now show progress and be a much more consistently reliable process. We’ve also added improvements for account management, allowing you to download a copy of your current database, and more easily reset employee passwords remotely.

New Timer Features

We’ve made a lot of improvements related to timers. Smart Groups can now be created and shared to save filtered lists of timers based on various criteria. You can also view timer lists in condensed/detailed modes, and group items within each list by client, project, category, or employee. A new power user feature: in addition to the general notes field, you can now also track notes for each ran time interval on a timer.

 

 

Invoice “Split Stages” to bill in parts

One of the most common questions we get is “how can I bill for part of this invoice?” We’ve had a few solutions, but up until now there hasn’t been a great way of accomplishing this task. With Studiometry 15, you can set up your invoice “Split Stages” where each part of the invoice has a specified due amount and due date. Each Split Stage will have an amount due that is a percentage of the total, a fixed amount, or the remaining amount after all other parts. Studiometry will also automatically calculate the current stage for the invoice based on payments received so you can easily send updates to your Clients.

 

 

 

But that’s not all…

Studiometry 15 adds countless improvements. Here are some highlights:

  • Reports can now be shown on Custom Summaries
  • Studiometry Cloud updated with various QOL enhancements for account management
  • Improved Employee permission capabilities
  • Abbreviations can now be linked to Debt/Credit types, making it easy to select by keyboard
  • Plus so much more! See the full version history

Coming Soon: Integrate Studiometry with 500+ apps and services

Studiometry 13 is just around the corner, and with it will come a plethora of great new features and improvements: Tags, 100% retina app, and much more to be announced soon.

One of the many big additions will be the ability to integrate Studiometry with 500+ other apps and services using Zapier. Zapier is a free service (with paid options) that enables you to automate tasks between online apps. Basically, it will let you create customizable integrations between Studiometry and hundreds of popular apps, including:

•    Slack
•    Gmail
•    Twitter
•    Dropbox
•    Google Docs
•    Wordpress
•    Evernote
•    Xero
•    And over 500+ other apps and services

These integrations will require a Studiometry Cloud account (or Studiometry Cloud Beta account). This is because Zapier integrates with “online apps.” It’s simply not possible to integrate with Zapier (and the 500+ apps on their platform) without a dedicated, centralized cloud backend to handle the API requests.

Get early beta access to Studiometry 13 and the new Zapier integration features!

Studiometry 12.5 Adds Forms and Much More

Forms Icon New to Studiometry 12.5 are Forms. Forms are saved lists of questions and fields that can be sent to your Client for a response, or entered locally in Studiometry. Form responses can be reviewed to create Projects, To Dos, and Logs. Forms can have endless uses, such as:

  • Tracking details associated with a Client or Project that are not already built in to Studiometry (such as a brief, for example)
  • Allowing Clients to send in requests that can appear as To Dos within Studiometry, linked with their Projects
  • Allowing Clients to request new projects with whatever criteria and questions you deem necessary
  • Getting feedback or followup on a Project that will be stored directly within Studiometry

Improving Other Existing Features

Studiometry 12.5 also focuses on improving existing features and adding in several longstanding user-requested features. Invoices can now be viewed directly within each Client. You’ll be able to see an aggregated list of all invoices for each Client, organized by Project.

We’ve also added several great billing features. There is a new option to have Studiometry ensure you’re only running one timer at a time. Starting or resuming a timer will automatically pause your other running timers. Plus, you can now customize the default number of days until invoices are due by client and by project.

In the Project’s work section, you can now group-edit items. This makes is incredibly easy to change work descriptions, types, dates, and more for multiple items simultaneously. You can now also quickly create an invoice containing the selected work items.

You create an estimate, purchase order, or report in Studiometry. Your Client gets an email saying there’s an item pending their review. They log in to your custom-branded Studiometry Cloud page to review, and then reject or approve it. You receive a notification back on your computer with their response.

Approval

This is all possible today with Studiometry 12.2 and an active Studiometry Cloud account.
