    Default A couple of questions about Keep It Easy software.

    I just bought Keep It Easy to try and keep track of my clients and my invoicing.....my spreadsheets worked but are fast becoming convoluted.

    I'm a little confused about the Interval box when entering a new client. Majority of my regulars are on fortnightly mows in summer and monthly in winter. Any idea what figures I enter in the Interval box and the Winter/Summer boxes to reflect this?

    That's the main thing atm, I'm sure there will be more when I get onto scheduling etc.

    Cheers in advance

    Hi Blaktop I started using the Summer/Winter frequency boxes but things change so much so I just use the little calander box when booking a new job.
    Hope that helps.

    So far it seems to do just about everything I have 4 spreadsheets for in one program. Do you know if you can change the way the date displays......I can't stand the US way of mm/dd/yy. Also if I use the little calendar at the side when booking a job sometimes it gets it right and sometimes it doesn't. For example if I choose March 1st 2012 it displays 3/1/12 but if I choose March 15th 2012 it displays (and books the job for) 12/3/15. The only way I can get it to do it right is to enter the date manually. Just wondering if I'm doing something wrong or if it's in the program.

    Another thing.....when I select 2 invoices for 2 jobs to generate the monthly invoice it only give the charge for one job although the total at the bottom is correct. It's early days yet and I'm probably doing something wrong.

    Got a question for those who use this as Selena is off on hols for 2 weeks.

    I dont have gst in the "software preferences" section but somehow my invoices to clients are showing a $35 mow , edge , sweep as $31.81 and total of invoice as $35.00 but not actually showing the gst amount anywhere.

    has anyone had this happen?

    Hi Wheeelers Hill, if you go to System Preferences then click General, then in the botom right corner if your not registered for GST un check the Reg GST box.

    Leon go to Job Management and you can see etraight away what you have done by looking at the calander. You can also go to Print Reports then Profit and loss and put in the dates your after.

    I got my own problems with it I hope Salina gets back to me soon I cant use it at the moment.... Sometimes I think its safer to use old fasion bookwork computers are good but when something goes wrong with either the computer or software it can mess your entire business up until its fixed.. I am going to keeep 2 sets I think just for piece of mind..

    I haven't even got all my customers in yet and I'm scraping it. The only way this programme is going to work for me is if someone else is doing it for me.

    Well, I have been trying to enter jobs and payments that have already been done and they keep showing up as a credit for the customer, except for 1 but all through the software I have different dates showing for the date of the job and the payment and when I go into the job details it keeps locking me in there because it is say I have a double booking yet I have no bookings scheduled in. Error messages the list goes on. I have even had to just switch the computer off twice because I could do anything unless I corrected the double booking.

    The date problem is the damn filters that keep putting US style dates in.

    I'm over it, I've had the programme for a while now and but haven't done much on it because I was waiting for the new financial year but every time I go on it I just end up pissed off.
