Intelligent functions

BillSonar Invoice Mac OS X Intelligent functions

The essence of intelligent functions is that the maintenance can be made by either the same hotkey or the same button from toolbar. It will be shown on toolbar that currently wich element is selected.

  • New ⌘N
  • Edit ⌘E
  • Duplicate ⌘D
  • Delete

For example, if in Browser view a client is selected, then there is no need to search for specially client edit, only simply use hotkey ⌘E. If anything else is selected (product, document or to-do), it can also be developed for editing with hotkey ⌘E.

The situation is the same with master data, for example, adding new lines will be ⌘N everywhere; and what is more, new item lines can also be added the same way while making a document. Design editor can be used in "intelligent functions" too.

Putting in practice - First tasks

Tasks after installing:

  • Choose menu "Settings/My company", fill in your company data and registrate it.
  • Choose menu "Billsonar/References..." and set the format of document ordinal numbers.
  • Setting of currencies and their formatting.
  • Naming custom fields.
  • Restart software.
  • Set settings: VAT percentages, quantity unit, etc.
  • Adding clients and products.
  • Create new document templates, or modify the already existing ones.
  • The software will ask for the starting ordinal number of document at the first save. While making an invoice, it will ask at finalizing.

After purchase:

  • If you were creating finalized invoices, you can continue your work in the used company.
  • If you were only trying out the software with non-valid data and would like to start over, create a new company/database and registrate it. This way, you can start real invoicing with a new empty database.
