Changes to Product Editor

As part of the forthcoming Bill of Materials feature that we are working on for Easify, we have taken the opportunity to re-write the Product Editor Window.

We always work hard not to change the user interface for Easify Pro any more than we have to, after-all who has time to re-learn how to use a piece of software? However for this update we decided to make the products window re-sizable as many of you have requested, and also to move the tabs to the size of the Window from the top. This is so that we can add more tabs in future (such as Bill of Materials features).

We have also moved a couple of things around a little. The Loyalty Points tab has been removed and the Loyalty Points box has been moved to the Pricing tab. We've also introduced a new Shipping tab where we've moved the product Shipping Weight and also added the new Commodity Code, Country of Origin and Shipping Notes features.

If you need to record product commodity codes and/or country of origin as part of your business operations, you can now do so in Easify. You can create a list of the commodity codes that you use, and assign them to your products. The commodity codes, country of origin and Shipping Notes can all be added to your paperwork in the Paperwork Designer.

Product Image Editor

Easify V4.78 includes an all new and powerful Product Image Editor.

The new product image editor now includes various image editing tools such as Crop, Rotate, Draw Text, Draw Shapes etc...

So now you can load a product image into Easify and tweak it as desired without having to own or use 3rd party image editing software such as Photoshop.

Product HTML Editor

Easify V4.78 also includes a completely re-written HTML Editor.

The new HTML Editor provides a familiar word processor-like environment for you to add and edit HTML product information.

Features such as spell checking are now built in as standard, and you can quickly and easily format your product information as you wish.

Changes to VAT Returns

Easify V4.78 also includes some minor re-wording of the VAT Return Window to align with changes made by HMRC after the EU transition period ended.

These changes are only cosmetic and affect how your VAT return is displayed on the screen in Easify, they do not affect your VAT Data or any information that is sent to HMRC.

We have also implemented additional security features as per HMRC requirements for VAT returns submitted via HMRC Making Tax Digital, so if you use MTD you should update to the latest version of Easify as soon as possible to ensure that you are complying with HMRC security requirements.

Many thanks to everyone that has helped us by submitting bug reports. Please don't hesitate to let us know if you encounter problems ASAP and we will get them resolved as quickly as we can.
