Version 1.38.5640 onwards

  • A ‘batch’ invoicing facility is now available. This allows multiple open invoices for multiple clients to be finalised in a single operation via the global ‘invoice items’ screen (a subscreen of ‘Client Utilities’ -> ‘Takings’). This is particularly useful for businesses that bill periodically, for example at the end of each month.
  • Thresholds can be set to control automated clearing of ‘small’ client credits and debits on invoice finalisation and/or payment processing. By default these are set to zero.
  • The ‘program management’ -> ‘network status’ screen now allows forcible disconnection of clients (with automatic release of any edit locks held by that client). This avoids having to restart the Black Dog server if a client has crashed without correctly disconnecting from the server.
  • Tablet mode now allows for both horizontal and vertical scrolling so that Black Dog is usable on touch screens without a keyboard in both portrait and landscape modes.
