Version 1.11.3402 onwards

  • The insurance claim screen was incorrectly displaying the total for items ticked for addition. This is now fixed.

  • PAYE pay slips were printing with incorrect NI contribution details – this was not an error in the underlying PAYE calculations but simply an error when printing resulting from the government’s introduction of upper accural points. This is now fixed.

  • Drug row stock colouring is now suppressed if not using stock control.

  • An additional screen action export for mail merge has been added to the reminder list screen – this is particularily useful for producing files for sending to companies such as Fort Dodge to allow them to send out booster reminders on behalf of the practice. Note the facility can be configured to output address information either in the Black Dog default of HouseName, HouseNumber, Road, etc. or as Address1, Address2, Address3, Address4. Likewise, client name information can be output as either Title, Forename, Surname or as a single ClientName. By default any inactive reminders (coloured grey) are not exported and multiple reminders for the same client (possibly for different pets) are combined into a single output line – the PetName is then set to a combination of the pet names for the individual reminders.

  • When processing a client payment, if the change is non-zero then the background colour of the
    change box is set to yellow to highlight this.

Version 1.11.3384 onwards

  • Added support for clinical notes for client accounts that do not allow individual pets – these accounts are typically used for counter sales or for handling work done for organisations such as the RSPCA.
  • Internal image facilites now extended to handle different horizontal and vertical resolutions as well as multi-image files (both typical features of the TIFF file format).
  • Postage prices updated to April 09 prices.

For further information re. version numbers etc. see the earlier post.

Version 1.11.3377 onwards

  • Support for Open Office extended to include spread sheet facilities – users
    can now opt to use either Microsoft Office or Open Office (the latter being free of charge).
    Note whilst it is suggested to keep to the same throughout a single site to ensure a consistent user experience, there is no actual technical need to do so.
  • Bug fix: if a client attempted to connect to the server before the server had completed its start up then this could cause the server to hang.
  • Support for minimum stock levels and stock control mode added to re-import facility for drugs.
  • Support added for PAYE tax year commencing 6/4/09. This includes the additional requirement to record earnings at the upper accrual point (UAP).
  • Now possible to export VAT details to a spreadsheet for multiple VAT periods (so this can be done
    for an entire accounting year).
  • Profit and loss report can now optionally include itemisation of all expenditure grouped by category and listed for each period covered by the report.
