Signature agreement text
You can now display text/link under the signature field so the person signing can see the signature agreement (ie link to your Terms & Conditions). This field is optional and you can leave all your signatures as they are but also handy if you want to increase customer acknowledgement at job completion.
If you would like to add an agreement text under your signatures you can do this in settings > custom fields by clicking on Edit agreement text on the signature custom field. Please note that this feature is only for custom field signatures, not for the general job signature. For further information see http://help.fieldinsight.com/

Our last feature release for 2018.
Add Photo’s to Generated Document Types (Quote, Invoice, Reports)
We have added the ability to attach photos/images to all document types (Invoice, Quote, Report etc). Please refer to the Help document for how to enable and set this up on any of your document templates.
QuotientApp (Quoting workflow) Integration
We have enabled an integration to QuotientApp, this is a 3rd party subscription (not covered by FieldInsight) but it allows you to do fancy quotes.
It will manage the quote creation and issuing (via email) and also approval (capture digital quote approval). Once a quote is approved it will come across to FieldInsight as an Approved Quote that you can then use to schedule/manage a project (or job) and then manage an invoicing workflow off the approved items in the Quote.
Please refer to our Help document. http://help.fieldinsight.com/advanced-fieldinsight-tips-and-integrations/quotient-app-integration-setup
Waze map integration
We now offer Waze maps (this is an alternative to Google Maps), we now support both.
Please refer help document as you will need to download the free Waze App (on any mobile device you use FieldInsight on).
- We have enabled drag and drop of a image file on to the job
- If you use our Invoicing, we have created a new tab ‘Overdue’ where any invoice that has not been marked as fully paid will automatically move in to the tab once the due date has passed. This makes tracking overdue invoices easier.
- We have added the ability to include the customer email address in the Yellow Hover box.
- We have added asterisk’s to field that you mark as mandatory so they cant be missed.
