New Feature: Added a new ‘short’ Route List report to the Routing screen.
Improvement: Print Bills screen: Customer list now in route order if a route is selected. Therefore, when generating the bills for a route, they’re printed/emailed in route order (and not customer number order).

Which also fixed the issue in the ‘Last Bills Sent’ screen where if there is a duplicate invoice number assigned to two different customers, the ‘Re-Print/Re-Email’ of those invoices was not working correctly.
Not allowing customer data to be saved without a ‘Bill Option’ selected anymore.
OLD MSG: “Neither Print Invoice nor eMail Invoice is checked and therefore this customer will not have invoices created even if they’re selected in the Print Bills screen. This can cause unexpected and confusing results.”
NEW MSG: “Select at least one Billing Option! Neither Print Invoice nor eMail Invoice is checked.”
Changed button text on the Electronic Payments tab’s button in the Electronic Payments screen to be easier to understand.
OLD TXT: “START/OPEN CUSTOMER WEB PORTAL for ELECTRONIC PAYMENTS”

Added Quick Launch menu buttons for easier navigation.
Added a ‘Payment Overdue Notice’ in the Current Balance screen that can be printed or emailed.
Added Last Pymt Date, Last Payment Amount, & Days Since Last Pymt to the Current Balances screen. This makes it easy to see who your late-paying customers are.

Bug Fixes 8.0.1
Fixed an issue in the Taxes Collected reports that treated county codes that were the same but in a different text case caused them to be reported as different counties.
Fixed an issue in the Increase Prices screen where the list of services flashes when there are more than 500 services and the window is maximized.
Fixed issue where the software can go off a screen’s viewable area making it appear invisible.
Fixed an issue where if the amount of a credit/debit card void or a refund is over $1000, the incorrect amount is posted to their account. This is only a problem in the Adkad software; the actual amount to the card holder’s account in Fortis is voided or refunded correctly.
Fixed printing problems on Windows 10 if “Let Windows manage my default printer” is on.
When printing/emailing a duplicate copy of a past invoice, it would always be created with shading. Now its created with or without shading, depending on the option selected in the Print Bills screen.
Fix bug where invoicing was using the same invoice number for different customers. (This was caused by user’s printing invoices by right-clicking in the PREVIEW window. Removed the right-click menu popup.)
Fixed an issue in the Chemical Application screen where the grid’s row heights could become too big.
Update Version: 7.1.3

Bug Fix: Fixed the issue where the customer balance displayed incorrectly when a refund was processed through the Electronic Payments (Fortis) portal & the payment was posted through the GroundsKeeper software.

The invoices “Total Amount Due” was not affected by this issue.
