THE DATAFORMA PULSE
WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE WORLD OF DATAFORMA
APRIL 2021 | VOL. V
Keeping You Informed DF Style
We have been very busy at Dataforma the first quarter of 2021. As we sit back, hopeful that the world continues to open up and anticipate that in-person/ live events will occur, we want to thank you for your partnership, your feedback & your amazing contribution to the roofing & field service industry.
Please enjoy this volume (V) as we continue to work hard to provide value & up-to-date tech functionality for our awesome Dataforma contractors. Loads of new features happening the beginning of 2021 & beyond. Here is a sneak peek …..
WHAT’S NEW: Q1 2021
YES — INVENTORY IS NOW LIVE!
Use inventory to track all materials and allocate to a warehouse.
Eliminate the need for another stand alone model
Call customer service at 866-764-9992 ext 0 to find out more!
THE DATAFORMA LABOR API IS NOW RELEASED!
DF users can now integrate DF labor records with their payroll systems! Each DF client will be responsible for building middleware to link DF and their payroll systems, yet this will give them the ability to build integration to whatever degree they choose. We will continue building out api(s) for each module
EMAIL INTEGRATION SIGNATURES
YOU ASKED AND WE DELIVERED…………………
Many of our clients loved the functionality of linking invoicing in DF with their Outlook and Gmail, but wanted to have custom signatures as well…& the wait is over! Each DF user can set up their signature within user settings…get ready for more outlook integration soon…
WHAT ARE WE WORKING ON NEXT IN ‘21?
DON’T LIKE DATA ENTRY?
Good news, we are adding the ability to import companies, contacts and buildings in bulk! This will allow DF users to import lists of these items from an excel file, avoiding time-consuming data entry
We expect the functionality to be available by June, giving you more time in the sun!
PROJECT FIELD REPORTS
OUR MUCH ANTICIPATED FIELD REPORTS FUNCTIONALITY IS ALMOST READY…………
………….LOOK FOR THE UPGRADE BY MAY!!
Each DF client can create as many reports as they like, allowing their crew leaders to document daily job info from the mobile app.
**Change Order Forms**
YOU ARE ONLY LIMITED BY YOUR IMAGINATION
MULTIPLE SALES TAX
WORKING IN MULTIPLE COUNTIES?
Contractors operating in many jurisdictions will love this upgrade – allowing you to add multiple tax jurisdictions to a building so taxes automatically calculate. Look for this in June.
OUTLOOK EMAIL INTEGRATION
Another major upgrade request we’ve had from many of our clients – users will soon be able to take an Outlook email and log it into DF…without having to do the work of manually creating a correspondence! Users will be able to have their defaults set, all the info from Outlook will pull over and you will only need to add a regarding and hit ‘create’ in DF!
This should also be released by June…it’s shaping up to be a big summer!
HAPPY DATAFORMA CUSTOMER
The strength of Dataforma is the team behind the program and their willingness to listen to all of their partners to continue to add or modify an already outstanding product. It is evident that the team at Dataforma has a philosophy of continual improvement.
